October is National Pet CBD Month!

October is here – that means cooler temperatures, gorgeous foliage, Halloween, and pumpkin spice everything! And now, thanks to Paw CBD, it’s also time to pay special attention to our furry family members’ health and wellness during National Pet CBD Month.

From toys to treats, from cuddly blankets and beds to nutritious diets and regular veterinary care, we spoil our pets and want what’s best for them. When looking to help our best friends live their best lives, we’re open to learning more about the latest in pet health and well-being.

So have you considered CBD for pets?

CBD for Pets

Even before the federal legalization of hemp-derived products with the 2018 Farm Bill, there had been significant interest in CBD as a means of supporting human health goals. Unfortunately, our pets weren’t always included in the conversation.

With this in mind, Paw CBD founded National Pet CBD Month to promote education and awareness of the properties of CBD for animals.

“Pets are family, too, and we want them to live happy, healthy lives. We founded National Pet CBD Month to spotlight the many benefits of CBD as a wellness option for both cats and dogs,” said Ken Cohn, Chief Marketing Officer of cbdMD.

“At Paw CBD, everything we do is focused on providing the very best for our best friends. We start by formulating our products with the same non-THC, safety-tested CBD used in cbdMD products for people.”

Is CBD Safe for Pets?

Growing interest in CBD for pets brings with it the need for loving pet owners to carefully research any CBD options they are considering for their dogs and cats. While CBD products should be tested for safety, not all providers do so, leaving many curious as to whether CBD is safe to give to their furry family members.

The short answer is yes! CBD is safe for our pets and can be a great addition to their daily wellness routine. Look for products that have been veterinarian formulated just for pets, including tinctures, treats, and even topicals. Avoid artificial ingredients and fillers, and look for options based on your pet’s weight with clear serving recommendations.

It’s also crucial to make sure your CBD of choice is free of THC (the intoxicating substance in marijuana), contaminants, and synthetic cannabinoids. It’s just as important that the amount of CBD on the label matches what’s in the product.

So whether you’re shopping for yourself or a cuddly best friend, check out our CBD Buyers Guide for a full list of things to keep in mind. With the right choice and a little education, CBD is a wonderful way to support wellness for all members of the family.

Getting Started with CBD for Pets

Paw CBD Oil Tinctures

Paw CBD Oil Tinctures are the most popular option because you can give them directly to your pet or drizzle them over their food or favorite treats. The plastic dropper makes it easy to adjust the serving size, and tinctures are versatile, especially if you have more than one pet. Paw CBD tinctures come in options for cats and dogs, in flavors and strengths that make them the perfect addition to their daily wellness routine.
