Did you know that your canine friend possesses the same naturally-occurring endocannabinoid system that humans do? With this in mind, it's no real surprise to learn that CBD for dogs was one of the most popular market trends. Our award-winning PureKana products come in two mouth-watering flavors, and are available for small, medium, or large-sized dogs.
Given what you've already heard about the effects of CBD oil on humans, it might seem a little strange to go off and buy CBD for dogs, or to think about giving CBD to your pets.
However, what few people realize is that active cannabidiol (CBD) works by interacting with endocannabinoid receptors that exist in nearly all life forms on earth - including dogs. What this means is that, from a physiological standpoint at least, hemp CBD for dogs functions in much the same way that it does in humans.
Most pet owners use pure CBD for dogs to try and ease stress that stems from the dog being separated from their owner or even symptoms that come with old age.
We've received feedback from satisfied customers that a simple morning helping (or perhaps a morning and evening helping) of CBD treats has worked wonders in improving their dog's mood, and/or simply giving them a better quality of life.
Additionally, many owners have chosen to use our PureKana hemp CBD for pets for younger dogs that suffer from separation issues. This of course includes separation for days at a time when you might have to board your dog at a kennel, but it could also include day-to-day separation while you're at work, away on holiday, etc.
Separation issues can be incredibly difficult for dogs of all ages, and many people don't realize that it can lead to complications over the long term. In many cases, CBD hemp treats in the morning can provide a safe and incredibly effective to help your dog relax while you're away.
CBD for Pets… How Much to Give Them?
When you buy CBD for pets, it can be really tough knowing exactly how much to give them, or if the amount you do give them is even working at all. That's why we've spent so much time trying to perfect our PureKana formula, which we believe by now is one of the best in the industry.
We've created two different varieties of CBD treats based on your dog's size - one for large dogs and one for small dogs.
However, the range is far more inclusive than this might seem, as the small dog treats tend to scale on the more "minimal" side, while the large dog treats scale on the "maximum" side. In other words, you can use quarter, half, or three-quarter sized treats in order to try and perfect the amount that your pet is getting.
We typically suggest a single CBD small dog treat for dogs 10 lbs and under. Above this size, you may want to start adding approximately half of a treat for every 10 lbs of weight; in other words, a 20 lb dog would get 1 ½ treats, a 30 lb dog would get 2 treats, and so on. For reference, our small dog hemp for pets treats come with 25 treats per bag, each of which contains 1 mg of hemp extract.In contrast, the larger treats come in bags of 20 with 50 mg extract per bag, meaning 2.5 mg per individual treat.
In most cases, the large dog treats for dogs 40 lbs and up, but of course this is only a rough estimation.
Not All Hemp Treats for Dogs Are Made the Same!
One thing you really need to be aware of when buying CBD for pets is to realize that there is a huge discrepancy between manufacturers in terms of the quality of products that are out there on the market. Given that CBD is so new to the market, many companies out there are taking advantage of the loose regulations surrounding the nature of the industry.
In other words, they are effectively marketing "hemp treats" or "CBD for dogs" that contains virtually no active cannabidiol whatsoever (cannabidiol is the scientific name for CBD).
They are getting away with this by using hemp seed extract or hemp powders, rather than actual CBD extract that is taken from the leaves and flowers of industrial hemp plants. While hemp seeds contain beneficial plant protein and are highly nutritious in their own right, they don't actually contain any of the CBD compound that is believed to interact with the Endocannabinoid System.
Quality CBD for pets will have been made using the same raw plant material and the same extraction equipment as "regular" CBD oils for humans. And indeed, here at PureKana this is exactly what we do.
The extract that we use in our CBD for dogs treats is the very same extract that we use for our industry-leading CBD oils, CBD capsules, and other CBD-infused products. All of our products are sourced from organic hemp plant material off of licensed Pilot Research Farms in Kentucky, thus we ensure that you're getting nothing but the highest quality, most CBD-rich strains grown on American soil.
And in order to prove it, we have our CBD dog treats lab tested and verified for content and purity just like all of our other products. Like you, we are of the firm belief that our "furry friends" are just as much a part of the family as anyone else, and this is why we put nothing but our best resources into extracting and producing every batch of PureKana hemp dog treats.

At PureKana, we use the same high-quality CBD extract for dog treats and our other products that we use for the rest of our range. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us directly. You should also consult a veterinarian before beginning a course of CBD for your pet.
The ingredients are the same for pets as they are for humans, and so is the extraction process. It is important that CO2 extraction is used for pet products rather than using solvents to extract the CBD. CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), and guess what? Pets (and almost every life form on Earth) also have an ECS! Therefore, CBD functions for pets similarly to how it works on humans. The difference is that we have flavored our pet-specific products so your animal actually wants to eat them. Otherwise, you may have a very hard time getting 'Sparky' to eat his CBD dog treat.
Our customers have a long list of reasons why they would consider giving CBD to their pets. For instance, we have received feedback from delighted customers who said that giving their dogs CBD helped support a better quality of life. Others have used PureKana CBD to help younger dogs who have separation issues. Please note that like CBD for humans, our CBD products are not designed to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent diseases in pets.
Absolutely not. CBD is known a non-intoxicating compound that does not get animals or humans high. Our pet CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC, which means you don’t have to worry about your pet becoming high.
At PureKana, we like to keep things simple. Our range of hemp dog treats come in two sizes: One for large dogs and one for small dogs. Our ‘small dog’ range contains 1mg per treat, while there is 2.5mg per treat in our ‘large dog’ range. We recommend starting off by giving a dog weighing less than 10 pounds one 1mg treat. You can increase the amount by half a treat (0.5mg of CBD) for every 10 pounds of weight. Therefore, a 20-pound dog would consume 1.5mg while a 30-pound dog would consume 2mg and so on. Our larger treats are designed for dogs weighing 40 pounds or more, but this is an estimation. Make sure you start with a small amount and work your way up.
We do not recommend giving your dog CBD oil designed for humans, as the concentration is typically higher than you would want. Remember, it is estimated that even a large dog who weighs over 40 pounds would need no more than 2.5mg of CBD. Humans regularly use 5-10 times more than that amount on a daily basis. PureKana’s CBD oil, capsules and other products for humans are not recommended for pets - hence the reason why we have a pet-specific range.
Remember, we do not suggest giving our standard CBD oils to your pet. We do however offer several CBD treats for pets that are specially formulated for your dog, and come in convenient sizes. Our CBD treats for pets are specially formulated for your dog, and come in convenient sizes. If you elect to use CBD oil, it becomes trickier to take an accurate measurement. If you go down this route, try to stick to the baseline recommendation of 1mg for a dog weighing 10 pounds or less, and an extra 0.5mg for every 10 pounds of weight.
Again, we do not recommend giving Pure Kana CBD oil to your dog or pet. Giving our delicious CBD dog treats to your pet, however, is a breeze. There are several methods of giving CBD oil to a dog, but our treats make it incredibly easy! Our treats come in delicious Blueberry & Chicken or Peanut Butter & Pumpkin flavors that your pooch will love. If you do decide to use a CBD oil for your pet, do so at your own discretion and always speak with a veterinarian beforehand.
