FAQ on CBD for Dogs

Is CBD good for my pet?

CBD products are completely safe to use for your dog since they have no toxicity and act as a relaxing stimulant that also provides pain relief. As CBD are extracted from CBD (seed) oil, there are no traces of THC, which is why this is a completely safe supplement for pet use.

Is CBD oil bad for my dog?

As CBD is completely natural, it’s in no way bad for your pet. Even though CBD oil is extracted from marijuana plants, this doesn’t instantly include THC concentration.

How do I know if my product is organic?

CBD oil for pets that’s not organically-sourced will contain substances such as pesticides, fungicides and/or solvents.

Will it give my dog a ‘buzz?

CBD products do not contain THC, which is the compound responsible for the “buzz” or “high”. In that respect, CBD oil, which is extracted from CBD, will only soothe your pet and relieve pain with no intoxication or psychoactive effects whatsoever.

What is the difference between CBD and marijuana?

The official conclusion states that “both CBD varieties and marijuana varieties are of the same genus, Cannabis, and the same species, Cannabis Sativa. Further, there are countless varieties that fall into further classifications within the species cannabis Sativa.” Still, the end result will depend on the way the plant is grown and used. For example, the most used term is cannabis (marijuana) which describes a Cannabis Sativa plant that is specifically grown for its potent trichomes. Trichomes are very rich in the THC compound (tetrahydrocannabinol), which has strong psychoactive properties and is the one responsible for the feeling of “high”. On the other hand, CBD is the term used to describe Cannabis Sativa plant which only contains small traces of THC, and is generally grown for industrial purposes such as oil supplements, topical ointments, fiber, construction, etc. Products made from industrial CBD that contain less than 0.3% of THC are legal for distribution and consumption. The mentioned 0.3% is the main factor that makes the difference between CBD and marijuana classification.

Is a standard CBD seed oil the same as a high CBD content CBD oil?

Definitely not. Standard CBD oil can be easily found and bought at regular grocery stores and is therefore very different from Naturally Well for Pets CBD oil. Standard CBD oil is obtained through the process of cold pressing the seeds while our CBD extract is an olive oil extraction of the CBD plant itself. Even standard CBD oil has its nutritive benefits and may be helpful for some ailments but it has a very low amount of CBD in it. After all, it is the CBD compound and its concentration that’s been studied and researched extensively for its far-reaching beneficial effects. Thanks to our extraction method, our CBD seed oil doesn’t need emulsifiers, thus making the CBD concentration high for the top product quality.

What is cannabidiol (CBD)? What is CBD oil?

Cannabinoids are compounds found in CBD and cannabis plant (flower, leaf, and stem) and they provide plenty of health benefits. When consumed, cannabinoids trigger certain receptors in the body (CB1 and CB2). Essentially, CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis that has absolutely no psychoactive effects, which is precisely why it’s extensively studied and researched for various uses. CBD is a derivative of CBD-A (cannabidiolic acid), produced when CBD-A comes into contact with heat. The decarboxylation temperature (the point at which the acid chain falls off the CBD-A) for CBD is around 240F-290F.

CBD oil is cannabis oil (it can be derived from both marijuana and industrial CBD) and it has higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD) in it. Naturally Well for Pets sells oil that’s derived from industrial CBD, which is why our oil is CBD-rich CBD oil. It’s important to note that cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana. This is a genus term which all forms of CBD and marijuana belong to. Naturally Well for Pets uses industrial CBD for our CBD oil; we don’t sell marijuana.

Can I fly/travel with CBD?

Flying with CBD oil products is legal and safe. All products available at Naturally Well for Pets are legal in all 50 US states, which means that you can take your CBD supplements with you wherever you go. This is because our supplements are derived from CBD and have less than 0.3% of THC. Therefore, there are no restrictions like there are with medical or recreational marijuana.

Also, CBD oil is legal in Mexico. Even though all forms of cannabis were banned up until recently, Mexico is working on their policy when it comes to the medical uses of CBD oil.

What kind of testing/analysis is performed on your products?

Our CBD oil is extracted by hand and all the batches are tested by an independent lab.

Where do you source your CBD from?

We blend our unique CBD oil with locally grown organic olive oil in California. The whole plant, grown organically in Colorado, is used in order to achieve the perfect balance of compounds, terpenes, omegas, and proteins. Every batch is independently tested and analyzed for top quality. Thanks to this, we are confident in labeling our products accurately so that we can provide both quality and consistency to our respected customers.

Why do you use an olive oil extraction?
There has been plenty of research done on what exactly stimulates the Endocannabinoid System and it was concluded that extra virgin olive oil upregulates CB-1 receptors. These receptors affect brain areas that are responsible for mood, sleep, memory, appetite, and pain.
What is the shelf life of your products?
Generally, Naturally Well for Pets products have a life shelf of about 1 year but they can last longer if kept in a cool, dark and dry area.
Will my pet get ‘high’?

No. Our CBD oil is made from industrial CBD. This means that there are minuscule amounts of THC present, which has absolutely no psychoactive or intoxicating effects whatsoever.

What is the safety of cannabidiol and your CBD oil? Are there negative side effects?

Cannabis is a completely natural plant and has been an essential part of alternative medicine for hundreds of years due to its many benefits. There’s also a difference worth mentioning when it comes to organic and synthetic drugs. Organic drugs trigger certain effects with no chemical alternation while synthetic drugs are man-made and come with a long list of dangerous side effects. That said, CBD is an all-natural alternative to synthetic drugs, thus providing treatment for many ailments with no side effects. Because of this, CBD can be extremely beneficial for pets.

CBD and other phytochemical constituents of cannabis are considered to be generally safe. For as long as CBD is known to man there has never been any recorded fatality or even illness in relation to the CBD use.

Is Naturally Well for Pets only for dogs and cats? Or can I give it to my guinea pig, rabbit, horse or other pet?
Naturally Well for Pets products are completely safe to use regardless of the size of your pet. After all, our products are not pharmaceuticals. They are completely organically-sourced and plant-based as well as GMO-free. Therefore, you can add our products to your pet’s food worry-free.
Why is finding the right CBD oil dosage so complicated?

It’s only logical for people looking to buy CBD to be interested in the right dosage before the actual purchase. And, it’s true that dosing can be a bit challenging, especially since different brands have different standards and ways of measuring. Also, doctors don’t like prescribing CBD precisely because they too are unsure of the right dosage for different conditions. However, we at Naturally Well for Pets hope that our guide will provide you with the easier answer as to what the right dosage for you is. With the following info, you’ll be able to understand the effects and factors of your health condition in order to determine the right dosage better.

It’s important to recognize the two factors that go into the CBD dosage that someone will need:

1) The quality of the CBD taken

The amount of CBD you need to take will greatly depend on the quality of that CBD product. After all, purity and the concentration of CBD is different for every brand and manufacturer. Luckily, we at Naturally Well for Pets can guarantee the purest CBD of top-notch quality. Don’t hesitate to read up more on our offers.

2) The way it affects each individual

Every individual can react differently to CBD products. CBD adjustments will have to be accordingly made depending on your weight, tolerance as well as the severity of condition you want to treat. However, it’s important to mention that trying out different amounts of CBD is nothing to be scared of, and is actually a recommended thing to do. What’s more, there are plenty of our satisfied customers who readily offer their personal advice on different ways this natural alternative can help with different ailments.

The funny and frustrating truth:

It’s impossible for us or any other brand to tell you the exact dosage you individually will need even with your weight and needs well-known. In the end, it all comes down to you, your symptoms and biological makeup. But, you can always make the first step and visit your doctor or a vet if you want to buy CBD for your pet. In the end, factors and differences make for too many variables. For example, someone who suffers from chronic insomnia and wants to take a more holistic approach to their issue should definitely look into the longer-acting method such as CBD capsules. And the easiest way to start off your dosage is to take your weight into consideration. But, in the end, that weight doesn’t have to prove to be accurate for your own dosage needs as it will all boil down to your endogenous cannabinoid levels, which are not commonly measured.

Like with any other dietary, all-natural supplement, your best bet is to start slow and low. Everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different, which is precisely why what works for some people may not necessarily work for you, as well. As you’re probably aware, more doesn’t always have to be better – but, with CBD, this is not a matter of overdosing or danger. If your condition is more serious, it’s only logical that you may find relief in larger CBD doses, which is fine because CBD has no toxicity whatsoever.

Three tips for taking the correct CBD oil dosage:

Start small and increase gradually

In general, the best way to approach CBD dosage is to start with a smaller amount and then gradually increase your dosage if necessary. As mentioned, different people, with different endocannabinoid systems, different weights, different ailments and different symptoms will all react differently and need their CBD dosage adjusted accordingly. Just like in case of many other supplements, it’s recommended that you start with the minimum recommended daily amount and then see for yourself how to adjust it in order to get your desired effect.

Pick the right bottle size for you

Another simple way that can help you with finding the right CBD dosage for you is to choose the bottle of the right size. Precisely because of that, Naturally Well for Pets carries bottles of different sizes. This allows the customers to avoid buying too much or too little of the product, while there will be fewer adjustments necessary in order to determine the right CBD amount for managing your particular symptoms.

Consult your physician

Before you start using any supplement or have your pets take it, it’s essential that you consult a doctor or a vet. Your doctor will be able to explain how to take and use CBD properly as well as the effects of it when taken with other meds or when suffering from different health conditions. Together, you can determine the perfect CBD dosage that’s right for you, and you’ll be ready to get started with Naturally Well for Pets!

Is cannabidiol a new solution for pets in pain?

Even though there’s still more research necessary, reports so far offer very positive outlook and make cannabidiol very much worth considering for both the pet owners and the vets.

Essentially, cannabidiol (CBD for short) has been gaining attention and popularity as a natural alternative for treating pain in pets. This may worry you for a second, but cannabidiol is not marijuana. Marijuana contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive substance responsible for the feeling of high. But, cannabidiol is a hemp plant extract and contains less than 0.3% of THC, which means that cannabidiol has no psychoactive properties.

It’s important to note that CBD directly affects endocannabinoid receptors that are a part of the central and peripheral nervous system. Basically, these receptors are responsible for keeping the body’s chemical balance. This type of homeostasis maintains the body’s health. So, aside from the pain regulation in pets that CBD can help with, it’s worth knowing that by affecting the endocannabinoid receptors, CBD can also minimize anxiety as well as manage the symptoms of noise phobia, epilepsy, inflammation, emesis, and anorexia effectively. For example, CBD produces the same reaction in balancing and regulating neural transmission in the body, just like another natural treatment known as acupuncture.

In that sense, these two natural treatments (CBD and acupuncture) have been observed to generally help with achieving body homeostasis as effectively as the usual pharmaceuticals. However, these natural alternatives don’t have any unwanted side effects.

Unfortunately, research on CBD and its effect on pets is very scarce. Even though there’s research being carried out right now at Colorado State University in regards to CBD and pain regulation in animals, the results are yet to come in. This means that using CBD as a natural alternative for pain management can only be justified based on the testimonials of other satisfied users.

As a vet who wants to relieve pain in animals, it’s essential to stay critical and open-minded at the same time. This means that it’s necessary to accept the possible risk of certain treatments failing to provide desired effects when prescribing them based on testimonials only. But, since there are so many positive reviews in regards to CBD, this hopefully won’t ever become an issue.

After all, even if it happens that some pets don’t respond with positive changes after taking CBD, one can be certain that there won’t be any negative effects either. This can’t be said for many approved pharmaceuticals, which also come with the risk of not helping the patient at all but sometimes can even worsen the condition or cause strong side effects. With that in mind, trying a natural alternative such as CBD is strongly encouraged.

CBD has already been used by many pet owners and recommended by many vets even without the official research results. It’s relatively simple to purchase hemp-based CBD oil online because hemp-based products contain less than 0.3% of THC and they are legal in almost every state. It’s important though to buy hemp oil and hemp products from reliable sources that offer pure and concentrated hemp oil that will be the most beneficial and effective. Also, renowned companies such as Naturally Well for Pets offer organic hemp oil with the highest concentration of CBD that has absolutely no traces of pesticides and is GMO-free.

The dosage of CBD hemp oil varies and it will strongly depend on your pets and their condition. Therefore, the best thing that you can do is to experiment with different dosages on your own and keep an eye on your pet’s reaction. You can increase or decrease the dosage if necessary. Also, there’s no reason to worry because humans and animals cannot overdose on hemp oil. To get your pet started on CBD hemp oil worry-free, check out our dosage chart on the following link:

There’s no reason to worry about the legality of hemp-based products. As mentioned, CBD hemp oil is legal as long as it is not extracted from marijuana but hemp plant. When extracted from the hemp plant, hemp CBD oil doesn’t contain THC, which is the compound that makes marijuana illegal. However, due to the lack of research and scientific confirmation on the effectiveness of CBD, hemp-based products are still not FDA approved and therefore manufacturers cannot disclose official medical claims or recommend a fixed dose amount.
