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 a time to pay special attention to our furry family members’ health and wellness.

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 aren’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.

“We founded National Pet CBD Month to spotlight CBD as a wellness option for our cherished pets, just as many do for themselves,” said Paul DiBrito, President of Paw CBD.

“We apply this point of view at Paw CBD every day. We start by formulating our products with the same THC-free, safety-tested CBD used in cbdMD products for people.”

Growing interest in CBD pet products 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.

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

With the right choice, CBD is a wonderful way to support wellness for all members of the family.

So after you embarrass your dog or cat by dressing them up in a ridiculous (but adorable) Halloween costume and asking them to pose for the camera, you can win back their affection with a tasty CBD snack from Paw CBD!

Even so, we can’t guarantee your cat will stop planning to overthrow you as head of the household. Some things may never change.
