First, how much do you know about CBD?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a chemical extracted from the hemp plant. The chemical includes many positive qualities such as aiding immune systems, relieving ailments like anxiety and depression, and helping to improve someone’s overall quality of life.
Moreover, if you didn’t already know, CBD is completely different than THC, the psychoactive element that gets someone high. CBD is non-toxic, contains zero psychoactive elements and can be consumed in many forms such as oils, extracts, capsules, and food…even doggy treats!
And did you know that CBD has those exact same effects whether it’s ingested by a person or by an animal?
Are CBD Treats Good For Dogs?
Yes, CBD treats for dogs are amazing and show a noticeable effect rather quickly. Remember, all dogs are different in both size and stress level which means you may have to test a bit to find the perfect amount for your furry friend. For the fastest CBD results, we recommend oil since it is more easily absorbed. However, it can be difficult to give to your dog which is why a lot of dog owners (including us) actually prefer treats!
Here’s a CBD Dog Treat We Recently Reviewed
Lucky for you, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to.
One of our top-rated CBD treats (which our dogs absolutely love as well) is KING KALM™ Crunch. Their formula starts with crunchy organic apple, soothing cinnamon, then they throw in some gluten-free stone ground oat flour to create a base along with some turmeric & black peppercorn for extra flavoring, making this treat 100% delicious!
Both of our dogs, Okami and Kiwi started feeling the effects in about 10-12 minutes which is extremely fast for a CBD treat. The snack gave off a delicious crunch that all the dogs absolutely loved.
And this is one of the few products we found that was 3rd party lab tested & certified for purity and potency, pesticide & solvent free, and made in the USA, meaning your furry friends will be getting top-rated CBD that is safe for them to consume.
Their website states that: each vitamin and Omega-3 rich cookie is slowly baked at a low temperature then dehydrated to maintain its nutritional value. It is an excellent source of macro/micronutrients and anti-oxidant benefits. Their specialized nutritionists recommend using this product daily as part of an overall health and wellness program. There are approximately 20-25 treats in each bag.
