I’m pretty much new to this whole industry so posts like yours really help me to see the difference between these products and to make sure that I’m using the right ones.

  2. I find it very interesting that CPD and Hemp can be used for animals as well. So will it be better to get an oil or a supplement for a dog with Dermatitis problems and will you use the same product for joint pain? My dog is an old lady and tends to have bad skin inflammation nothing seems to work.

    I find it fascinating that one plant can benefit such a big variety of people and/or animals and it all depends on what process you use!

    This was really very informative, thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi, Great article! I’ve been giving my pet CBD for over a year. It really calms her and as she ages she is just as feisty as ever. She just celebrated her 8th birthday and we walk 3 miles a day. Considering she is a small 12 pound dog I find amazing! Before CBD she would destroy my home when I went to work and I was forced to put her in a crate during the day. Now I leave and she calmly watches me leave through the window and she has full reign over the house. No accidents and nothing chewed or destroyed! It really has been a life saver! I was able to get rid of the crate!
    Thanks for such a great article. I hope many other read this!

  4. Hi Jamie

    Thank for sharing with us your insightful experience! You are right CBD oil also help to sooth pets and make them less agitated.


  5. This video has really shed light on just how powerful CBD and ratios of THC can work for humans and pets. These CBD treats do work we see our aunty give this to her 8-year-old dog and this does help her with stomach issues that she has. CBD is powerful with humans as much as it is with pets and other animals with underlying conditions that hurt them.
    We strongly agree with you on this helping animals and most pets that are in your home, with CBD treats and shampoos these can help more and more dog owners.
