Pet Hemp Company CBD Dog Treats + Stress & Anxiety Relief
Awareness of the therapeutic benefits associated with CBD has taken the world by storm. With so many people having experienced these advantages for themselves, it is not a surprise to hear that consumers are also curious about CBD treats for dogs. Organic CBD dog treats can be an excellent way to introduce the beneficial qualities of CBD to a pet in need of some relief.
Our Peanut Butter + Apple dog treats are enhanced with L-Theanine and Chamomile to increase alpha wave generation and lower your pet’s nervousness. These unique flavors and calming herbs are combined with other key superfoods like Hemp Seed Powder and Pure CBD Oil to help your dog maintain calm energy and a peaceful relaxed state in any stressful or nerve-racking situation. This formula is perfect for animals who struggle with stressors and phobias. That includes pets who fear loud noises like thunder or pets with severe separation and traveling anxiety. It can also help animals with nervous stomachs.
All Pet Hemp products are laboratory tested. Please learn more here.
CBD oil does wonders for your pet, but that doesn’t mean other nutrients can’t also help out. These are all the ingredients in our dog treats:
- L-Theanine: Decreases anxiousness, promotes stress relief and relaxation.
- Chamomile: Reduces physical swelling and calms the mind. Perfect for before bedtime.
- Hemp Seed Powder: Extremely high nutritional value.
- CBD Oil (Cannabidiol): Does not have any intoxicating effects like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) does. This means your dog or cat will not get “high” by consuming CBD.
OTHER INGREDIENTS: Peanut Butter, Organic applesauce, Brown Rice Flour, Molasses, Cinnamon, Coconut Oil
All these extra ingredients are not only natural, but also known to be safe for dogs. Moreover, they help provide additional health benefits to canines.
CBD is extracted from hemp through an all-natural, solventless process using CO2. The plant is ground up and liquid CO2 is run through the material, pulling away all the beneficial compounds. The CO2 is then evaporated, leaving no residue behind.
Other companies use solvent-based extraction methods, but these techniques are dangerous and can leave behind potentially toxic residue. Since we at Pet Hemp Company keep our extraction process clean, you get only the beneficial ingredients with none of the harmful ones!
Just like any other dog treat, the amount of CBD should be determined by the animal’s weight. Dosage recommendations are easiest to calculate per pound, so the first step in determining the amount of CBD for your dog is to weigh them!
All top-quality CBD products should come with dosage recommendations, whether on the label or the seller’s website. Make sure to follow those recommendations before increasing the dosage. Of course, having your veterinarian double-check the dosage is always advisable.

Canine CBD – Good Things to Know
CBD is extracted from hemp, which is a cannabis plant. While it is taken from cannabis, however, legal CBD products won’t make your dog “high.” This is because CBD is different from THC, which is the chemical in marijuana known to cause intoxication.
Another useful thing to know is that CBD oil can be put into just about anything. Dog treats, cat treats, meals, water — you can even drop the CBD oil directly into your dog’s mouth!
CBD and the Endocannabinoid System
An endocannabinoid system (ECS) has been found in nearly all mammals — including dogs. The ECS helps regulate essential body functions like breathing, heart rate, and digestion. Keeping these receptors healthy maintains balance all over the body.
CBD is a cannabinoid, and mammals (like humans and dogs) have cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies. The CBD interacts with these receptors, which in turn boosts the ECS’s efficacy. A well-functioning ECS is crucial for your dog’s overall wellbeing.
Is CBD Safe for Dogs?
CBD is well-tolerated by most dogs. The cannabinoid is not psychoactive and can be easily metabolized by dogs. There are also no serious adverse effects to giving your dog CBD. Side effects are typically only seen when CBD is given in large doses, and they may include:
- Dry Mouth
The risk of these effects is incredibly low, and you can reduce the chance of your furry friend reacting negatively to CBD by starting with a small dose. Monitor your dog and make sure they are comfortable before offering any more CBD treats. Let’s take a look at other ways you can safely give your dog CBD.
How to Safely Administer CBD to Dogs
The good news is that there has never been a case of a dog that overdosed on CBD. Generally well-tolerated, we recommend sticking close to the CBD product’s dosage instructions. Like any good thing, too much can have unwanted effects!
Generally, CBD should be administered slowly and in low dosages. Perhaps start with a small amount once a day and simply observe your dog’s reaction throughout the day. You can gradually increase the dosage if you think your dog still needs it. Since your dog’s heaviness is also a factor, be sure to adjust the CBD amount if your pet loses or gains weight.
Even though it is well-tolerated, it never hurts to check with your veterinarian. A vet can help you determine the proper dosage and make sure it is not interfering with any other medications. Keep in mind that not all CBD products are created equal. For true safety, you want to get the product from reliable sources. Below are some CBD characteristics that should either be tested or made clear by the manufacturer.
Explicitly stated potency guarantees that each dosage is at a safe and effective level. You want the CBD to have a consistent effect on dogs every time you give it to them. This way, you can confidently give your dog the same treat repeatedly without any surprises. It also allows you to easily adjust the dose.
Potency should be clearly stated on the label. At Pet Hemp Company, we test all our products to ensure that our labels are always accurate.
Since CBD is extracted from hemp, poorly grown crops can negatively impact the final product. Growers that do not put enough care into their hemp may use harmful pesticides that will result in low-quality and potentially dangerous CBD.
The best way to avoid pesticides is to only buy CBD for dogs from companies that use hemp grown in the United States. Federal agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulate the growth of hemp and ensure it is safe. Imported hemp is not always grown under strict guidelines.
For added protection against pesticides, look for organic hemp. We at Pet Hemp Company guarantee that all our products are 100% organic. We also test for pesticides so that you can safely give your furry friend CBD dog treats!
As we mentioned, Pet Hemp Company uses natural CO2 extraction. This process is solventless, but other companies use solvents like butane to remove CBD from hemp. If evaporated improperly, these solvents can leave behind a toxic residue. Look for CBD products that are made with CO2 extraction — like ours!
Even though we don’t use solvents, we never leave anything up to chance. We still test all our products for residual solvents to be sure no unwanted contaminants somehow made it into the CBD. We believe that it’s better to take the extra time to stay safe rather than have your pooch feel sick.
How Much CBD Should I Give My Dog?
It is always a good idea to check the label of your CBD product first. If you can’t find any CBD dosing on it, these guidelines will help you get started.
When it comes to dog treats, the dosing guidelines are pretty simple. Start with half a treat, and see how your dog reacts (give it a full 24 hours). If you see the benefits you’re looking for, such as increased mobility or reduced nervousness, you’ve found a suitable dose. Otherwise, you can move up to a whole treat and then two treats for larger dogs.
Dosing CBD Oil
What about other forms of CBD? Oil is one of the most popular ways to get your dog its daily dose of benefits. For oil, it all depends on the weight of your dog.
For dogs that weigh up to 20 lbs, we recommend our 150 mg bottle of CBD oil:
- Starting dose: 0.25 ml (2.5 mg CBD)
- Regular dose: 0.5 ml (5 mg)
- Strong dose: 1 ml (10 mg)
For dogs that weigh between 20-60 lbs, we recommend our 300 mg bottle of CBD oil:
- Starting: 0.25 ml (5 mg)
- Regular: 0.5 ml (10 mg)
- Strong: 1 ml (20 mg)
Larger dogs that weigh 60-100 lbs would benefit most from our 600 mg CBD oil:
- Starting: 0.5 ml (10 mg)
- Regular: 1 ml (20 mg)
- Strong: 2 ml (40 mg)
If you’ve got a pooch that weighs between 100-160 lbs, you’ve got two excellent CBD oil size options. Our 1200 mg bottle is perfect for daily wellness benefit:
- Starting: 0.5 ml (20 mg)
- Regular: 1 ml (40 mg)
- Strong: 2 ml (80 mg)
If your dog is on the heavier side or experiencing skin irritation, you may want something a bit stronger. In that case, consider our 3000 mg bottle:
- Regular: 1.5 ml (100 mg)
- Strong: 2 ml (200 mg)
How Long Does It Take for CBD Dog Treats to Work?
The dog treats can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes before working. That’s because the dog treat has to pass through your dog’s digestive system before being absorbed by the body. The speed of the CBD’s effectiveness depends on your pooch’s metabolism and whether they have already eaten.
When Buying CBD for Your Dog, It’s Important to Ask the Following Questions
Is it Organic?
Organically grown hemp is the best source of top-quality CBD. Organic crops generally don’t use unnatural herbicides, pesticides, or other harmful chemicals.
Is CBD Independently Tested?
The CBD product should be tested by a third-party laboratory independent of its manufacturer. Having a third party examine the product is crucial for an unbiased opinion.
The lab will give the manufacturer a Certificate of Analysis (COA) if the compounds inside match the product’s label. A COA is one of the best ways to double-check a company’s claims with the truth. Any business that can’t provide a COA should be avoided.
What Is the THC Content?
All of Pet Hemp Company’s CBD products contain 0.3% THC or less. The key difference between hemp and marijuana plants is their THC content.
Hemp must contain 0.3% THC or less to be federally legal. Marijuana has THC levels greater than 0.3%. Though some states have legalized marijuana, it is still federally illegal. Since CBD comes from hemp, the plant’s low THC content is the reason why it won’t make your dog intoxicated.
Why Buy CBD from Pet Hemp Company?
We are the first choice of veterinarians when it comes to online CBD dog treats. Realizing that there are very few CBD products for dogs online, we started producing high-quality dog treats that can fill the substantial void in the market.
As canine-lovers ourselves, we made sure that every batch of the CBD treats goes through extensive testing to guarantee their safety. These tests are done through third-party laboratories, testing for both potency and purity of the product for an accurate dosage each time.
Our goal is to deliver top-quality CBD products that are beneficial for the wellbeing of your dog. This is why all Pet Hemp Company products are made with vegan, organic, and all-natural ingredients.
We guarantee the use of non-GMO products and NEVER include any wheat, cornmeal, colors, synthetic flavors, or animal byproducts in the CBD treats. Guaranteeing satisfaction or your money back, you can trust Pet Hemp Company products.
Is Shipping Really Free for All Orders?
Of course! It doesn’t matter how big or small it is — we will always offer free shipping. Once your order is processed, you can expect the item anywhere from 3 to 5 business days. We offer this to ensure all pet owners can get the benefits of CBD for their canines.
Where Do You Ship CBD Products?

The world of CBD isn’t the most intuitive, which is why we’re here to guide you along. These are some of the most frequently asked questions we get, and our answers!
Can CBD Treats Hurt My Dog?
Most dogs tolerate CBD well, so treats should not be the cause of any harm. CBD is also non-intoxicating and easily processed by the majority of dogs. In addition, there are no known serious side effects that come as the result of CBD consumption.
Will CBD Calm My Dog Down?
Recently CBD has become popular for assisting people in relaxing, but it is also great for dogs! After experiencing the calm and relaxed mood promoted by CBD, many dog owners turn to pet CBD to give their canine companion some of the same relief they have experienced themselves!
The calming effects of CBD can be useful for owners who want to give an overly nervous dog some relief (this is great for pups scared of loud noises like fireworks or thunder) or for help in stabilizing the mood of a high-energy dog.
What Are CBD Dog Treats Good For?
CBD dog treats can provide your pooch with an all-natural, generally beneficial calm that will benefit many aspects of their lives. Treating the endocannabinoid system promotes a relaxed disposition that encourages wellness and calm while nullifying negative feelings like separation nervousness, restlessness, and low mood.
The best CBD dog treats can provide many relieving effects for your dog. Giving your dogs CBD treats can provide benefits such as:
- Promotes natural appetite
- Helps provide a good night’s rest
- Relieves nervous behaviors
- Relaxes sore muscles
- Eases restlessness
- Assists digestion
Do Vets Recommend CBD Oil for Dogs?
Because every veterinarian is different, there is no singular answer to this question. However, all of the content and products offered by Pet Hemp Company are vet-approved as well-tolerated by pets. But the best way to know whether CBD oil is recommended for your dog is to ask your vet!
Are CBD Treats or Oil Better for Dogs?
Luckily for dog owners, both CBD treats and oil will be equally effective for dogs! The primary differences in these products are how you give them to your pet and the consistency of each dose:
- CBD dog treats are great to use in training or rewarding a dog and conveniently come pre-dosed per treat.
- CBD oil is an excellent choice because you can add it to food and easily adjust the dose as needed.
Can I Give My Dog CBD Everyday?
Giving your dog CBD oil every day is completely fine. In fact, we recommend it. Consistent, scheduled use could further encourage functions of the endocannabinoid system. The frequency of dosing should vary depending on the particular needs of your pet.
Can You Overdose a Dog With CBD?
Luckily, no severe side effects are likely to result from giving your dog too big a CBD dose. Doses over the regular threshold produce no consistent undesirable side effects or detrimental changes to a dog’s health.
Large doses may result in mild side effects but should not induce fatal side effects or any long-term damage to your dog. If your dog shows any signs of overdose, take your dog to an emergency veterinarian immediately.
Is CBD Psychoactive?
“Psychoactive” is often associated with being “intoxicating,” but that isn’t always the case. Something can be psychoactive if it boosts your mood the way CBD does. So while CBD is technically psychoactive, it does not produce the groggy “high” that marijuana is known for.
CBD is not considered intoxicating as it will not affect decision-making abilities, cause any withdrawal effects or result in an overt change in the consumer’s mental capacity.
Can CBD Be Addictive to Dogs?
Currently, no evidence exists suggesting that CBD could be addictive to dogs or people! CBD does not produce any intoxicating effects following consumption, so it should not become habit-forming or create any withdrawal symptoms.
Do CBD Dog Treats Have Any Side Effects?
As a well-tolerated substance, CBD should not cause any side effects. Still, CBD dog treats can potentially lead to some minor side effects. If your dog experiences side effects, know they will be short-lived and minor. Some possible side effects include:
- Red eyes
- Upset stomach
- Dry mouth
How Many Treats Should The Dog Have Daily?
A good rule of thumb to reference when trying to determine a good dose for your dog is to start with a base of one to two milligrams of CBD per 10 pounds of your dog’s body weight. From here, you will have the flexibility to adjust the dose as needed. Just be sure to start low and up the dosage slowly to ensure your dog stays comfortable.
Can My Dog Get High From CBD?
No, your dog can not get high from CBD no matter the amount consumed! CBD does not directly bind to receptors in the body as THC does. CBD causes much more mild, non-intoxicating effects. Instead of producing euphoric or intoxicating feelings, CBD will encourage a feeling of overall wellbeing without getting your dog high.
How Are CBD Dog Treats Made?
Dog CBD treats are typically made much in the same way one would make regular dog treats, but with the addition of organically grown hemp extract! A good CBD dog treat will also be made of organic ingredients like sweet potato, peanut butter, and coconut oil to give your dog the most nutritional benefits.
How Do I Find Safe CBD Dog Treats?
When choosing a CBD treat from any vendor, pet owners should still be sure to look out for some qualities typically present in manufacturers who provide a safe CBD product:
- User reviewed
- USA grown hemp
- Organic ingredients
- Naturally occurring CBD
Pet parents can find safe CBD dog treats right here at HolistaPet! We make sure our products are safe. How? Third-party lab testing, natural ingredients, and pure CBD oil. All nutrients that your pet should love!

My dog really loved these treats and they helped us get through 4th of July fireworks painlessly. He was definitely calm and relaxed and he enjoyed the flavor (a little too much!)
Joe S. –
Our senior pup Sadie has developed a lot of stress and joint issues so we gave these a shot, not expecting much. Boy were we surprised! Sadie ate two and later in the night she slept like a puppy without pacing like usual, so we all got a good night’s sleep.
Brooke D. –
WOW! These treats have made such a difference with my dog’s stiff joints. He’s acting like a younger pup again. I’m so happy and so is he!
