  1. What your pet needs

    1. The very first thing to consider when you are trying to pick a CBD product for your pet is why you are getting them CBD in the first place. There are a lot of CBD products on the market and while all CBD has similar effects, there are products better suited for specific situations. For example, if you are going on a plane with your pet and you want to reduce their anxiety, a bag of resealable Zen Bites might be the easiest option. On the other hand, if your pet is super spastic in the bath they might benefit more from a CBD infused pet shampoo. If separation anxiety is why you are looking into pet CBD, maybe consider getting a CBD peanut butter that you can put in/on your pets treats for extended use after you leave them home alone. As you can see, there is a wide variety of pet CBD products and it is worth doing some research to figure out which product would best suit you and your pet’s needs. 

  2. Ingredients

    1. Looking at the ingredients is an imperative part of picking any food, treat, or supplement for pets, just as it is for humans. You want to make sure that you are aware of what is going into your pet's body. When looking at labels you should look for a product that has a short list of ingredients with names that you can pronounce. If reading the ingredients feels like reading a novel in a foreign language, then you should probably try another product. 

  3. Testing/the Manufacturer 

    1. This is extremely important when it comes to pet CBD products. While CBD itself is non-psychoactive and harmless to pets, there is not strict regulation on what products can make it on the market. The brand that you purchase products from should be able to tell you exactly where the products are made, who the manufacturers are, and provide you with complete testing analysis upon request. 

  4. Reviews

    1. Reviews are a great indicator of the effectiveness of a product and how much other users trust it. Ideally when picking your pet CBD product there would be at least a handful of reviews that you could read from real pet owners who used the products. A company can tell you whatever they want you to think about their product, but that is often not as trustworthy as hearing testimonials from actual customers. 

  5. Price

    1. The price of pet CBD products varies widely between brands, some are definitely pricier than others. On one hand you should be wary of extremely low price points, sometimes things really are too good to be true. But on the other hand, more expensive doesn’t always mean better. There definitely is a happy medium between getting a quality product without breaking the bank. For some perspective, a decent size bag of CBD treats (4mg per treat) will cost around $20-30. For the most concentrated forms of liquid CBD (500 mg for a 30 Ml bottle) will cost around $60. Those prices are definitely not set in stone and vary greatly depending on where you are buying your products. But hopefully they help you get an idea of the general range of product prices.
