Why use CBD oil?
One main reason CBD is so widely popular and so effective is because it is a natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs that tend to cause harmful side effects. Such as liver and kidney damage, stomach ulcers, skin irritation, or worst anaphylaxis.
Despite the fact it has become quite popular for its medicinal properties, even healthy dogs are encouraged to take it! This is because it helps boost the immune system, it helps digestion, the cardiovascular system and protect the nervous system.
The reason it works so well compared to pharmaceutical drugs is that when there is an issue within a health system. The pharmaceutical drug targets the problem area but also causing a problem in another. Ultimately causing a chain reaction affecting the overall health of the animal. While CBD targets the entire endocannabinoid system which will give relief to the specific area with no negative side effects and even creates prolonged assistance in maintaining great health.

How much should I give my dog?
We recommend starting with 1ml per day, given in the morning. Each bottle has a serving size
for 30 days when taken 1x a day at a dose of 1ml. For more serious issues, we do recommend giving 2x a day, 1ml in the morning and 1ml at night.
How do I give the CBD to my dog?
Here are multiple ways to give your dog CBD:
1. Some dogs actually like the taste, so we recommend having them try a taste of it first as they might like it, they will start trying to lick it out of the dropper.
2. It is good to administer the CBD into the gums of your dog as the gums are very viscus and full of blood vessels. For putting it in the gums, you can just lift the dog’s lip or put the dropper in the corner of the mouth and squeeze quickly or gently, whichever works!
3. Putting it on a treat works too! Just make sure the dog gets it all, we have even put a little treat dust on the dropper to have the dog lick it themselves and then squirt it on their tongue as they are licking. After that, they really like just taking the CBD out of the dropper.
4. You can put it on the dog’s food as it will still work but we find it works slower that way.
5. You can also put the CBD in a small portion of water and give it to the dog (given the dog is thirsty at this time as well) so they drink all of it.
6. We have heard of people putting it on their dog’s nose where they lick it off or directly absorbed by the nose that way. we haven’t tried it but theoretically, it could work!
7. Get creative!! If you or someone else has another way that worked please email or message us so we can update our list!!
Is CBD dangerous or toxic for my dog?
In the history of CBD research since the 1940s there has never been a death or deadly side effect of CBD. In no way is CBD is dangerous for any animal or human for that matter. Where people have problems with their animals when it comes to a CBD product, the danger is in the product itself. Business that do not test their ingredients, have toxic chemicals or other additives run into these problems which is exactly why we keep our product simple and concise. You know what you are getting and we know what we are selling.
What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for the molecule known as Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol binds to a wide variety of physiological targets of the endocannabinoid system within the body without affecting our animals psychoactive function.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system helps the body regulate all of its other health systems and maintain homeostasis. It’s most important function is that it is what helps keep the body healthy and make sure the body maintains its peak performance for healing itself. The three major health systems it affects are the endocrine system, nervous system and immune system. Within these systems are connections to the brain, vital organs and the circulatory system.
The endocannabinoid system has two kinds of receptors for CBD. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. Both of these receptors target different places in the body. CB1 receptors are found in the brain and nervous system while CB2 are found on white blood cells, organs and outside the brain.
What is MCT oil?
MCT oil is a highly concentrated source of medium-chain triglycerides. Through a process called fractionation, we get ours by extracting and isolating the MCT’s from organic coconuts.
Why we use it:
• It is easy to give. We recommend giving our product directly into the gums or mouth of your dog because it is absorbed best this way. However, you can put it on their food, on a treat, or a small bowl of water you know they will consume all of!
• It helps for rapid absorption by getting absorbed by the liver at a faster rate, it can give quick relief of serious symptoms.
• Many brands harvest their MCTs from palm oil which is horrible for the environment and palm forests, which is the habitat of most Orangutans!
• Our MCT is harvested from 100% organic coconuts, and processed for purity. That way your dog gets the maximum benefit of ketones – the brain’s two primary fuel sources – and ATP for the body perform at their peak!

Is my dog going to get intoxicated or high?
No, the CBD isolate we use is just that. It is the cannabis molecule that relates only to the physiological systems in the body and not the psychological. The THC molecule in cannabis can affect the dog psychologically but our product does not contain any trace of the molecule. We know this because of our testing done by Pura Lab Analytical.
Our product contains 0% THC, so there is no “high” feeling. We know of the health benefits of THC and the entourage effect but we don’t want our customers to worry too much about dosage and CBD does plenty of good on its own!
What is the difference between a physiological and psychoactive substance?
A physiological substance is going to only have an effect on the body of the animal while a psychoactive substance acts primarily upon the brain’s perception of reality where it alters its function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness and behavior. With our CBD oil we only affect the dog’s physiological systems.
What Happens If You Give Your Pet Too Much CBD?
If you give your pet too much CBD, you may notice that it makes them fatigued where a lower dose may actually give more energy. If you notice this side effect, there is nothing to worry about as there are no negative health effects.
In fact, some pet owners purposely give their pets high doses of CBD to help with insomnia or more serious problems with physically or behaviorally. Common side effects such as nausea or diarrhea may occur, but they are fairly rare, mild and easily treatable.
Is hemp legal?
Yes! In the U.S.A. the Farm Bill ensures that any cannabinoid—a set of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant—that is derived from hemp will be legal. In Canada, the cultivation of industrial hemp has been permitted in Canada since 1998 and is currently regulated by Health Canada under the Cannabis Act. Health Canada licenses the cultivation of hemp under the Industrial Hemp Regulations.
Does your CBD contain hemp seed oil?
No, as we don’t want to fool our customers into buying a product that will not have the same benefits of a CBD oil product! Many products that contain hemp seed oil, and no actual CBD while being claimed as CBD products, are being primarily sold on Amazon
Hemp seed oil, also sometimes called “hemp oil”, is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant only, where no phytocannabinoids or CBD is there. When shopping elsewhere or especially on Amazon, it’s important to look out for this distinction to make sure you’re getting what you’re actually looking for. That’s why we keep it simple and direct so that you know what you are getting and can see the benefits for yourself!
Is your CBD third party tested?
Yes it is! With results of 99.64% CBD – 0% THC – and no contaminants or heavy metals! We want to make sure that the product we give is as pure as we claim it to be while also being as healthy as possible. Some industrial hemp farmers overseas don’t have strict regulations when it comes to their products and they tend to contain heavy metals or other contaminants which can be harmful! We have our testing done at Pura Analytical Labs.
