Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is cannabidiol (CBD)?
    • Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic compound that comes from the leaves, stalks, stems, and flowers of the Cannabis sativa plant; it is the most widely accepted non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis.

      CBD should not be confused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), even though they both come from cannabis. We extract the hemp-derived CBD oil contained in Paw CBD products from industrial hemp to ensure that there is absolutely no THC in any of our products. THC-free is defined as below the level of detection using valid scientific analytical tools.

  • Is CBD oil legal?
    • Congress’ passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill,” paved the way for legal, closely monitored industrial hemp growth on farms in the U.S. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp was declassified from a schedule I drug, allowing for hemp to be grown legally on the federal level.

      Because all of our products use hemp-derived CBD that results in THC-free* products, they are legal and can be shipped across all 50 states. Individual states still have the right to decide whether hemp-based products, such as CBD oil, are legal at a more local level.

  • Can I purchase CBD without a prescription?
    • Yes. You do not need a prescription to purchase any of our hemp-derived CBD products. In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, all of our Paw CBD products use CBD extracted from industrial hemp and are specially formulated to contain no THC.

  • Will CBD get my pet high?
    • CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid of cannabis. Our products do not contain THC, which is the primary psychoactive component in cannabis. This means that it is not possible for your pet to get “high” or “buzzed” using hemp-derived Paw CBD products. CBD is a safe, lawful, and effective option that offers many health benefits for both people and pets.

  • What are cannabinoids?
    • Science classifies cannabinoids as fatty compounds that play vital roles within our immune and central nervous systems; cannabinoids are abundant in the hemp plant. Animals have an endocannabinoid system just like humans, meaning CBD can be used in many of the same applications.

  • What is the endocannabinoid system?
    • The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex arrangement of cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system of humans and other mammals that regulates and balances many different body functions, including, but not limited to, sleep, appetite, mood, and memory.

  • Can my pet overdose from CBD?
    • Paw CBD products contain only non toxic, naturally occurring ingredients. Because CBD has such a low level of THC, if any, your pet will not experience an overdose when taking properly sourced, hemp-derived CBD products. Follow serving recommendations and adjust as needed based on your pet’s response.

  • Is Paw CBD only for dogs and cats?
    • Paw CBD products can be given to any size of pet, including horses. Please follow serving suggestions on each product packaging.

  • Is Paw CBD recommended by veterinarians?
    • Our products are veterinarian-formulated and third-party, ISO-certified lab-tested to provide your pet with the alternative options they’ve been looking for to support their overall health and wellbeing. We always recommend talking to your veterinarian before adding any new products to your pet’s regimen.

  • How do I apply CBD products for my pet?
    • CBD can be administered orally or topically, depending on what products you and your pet prefer. We offer a variety of options from tinctures to chews, both flavored and unflavored, to make providing your pet with all the benefits of hemp-derived CBD as easy and convenient as possible. Our packaging includes the proper application instructions for each product.

  • How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
    • Hemp-derived CBD affects each pet differently based on a variety of factors – size, shape, age, and overall health. It is generally recommended to start with a lower serving when beginning a daily regimen and adjusting as needed. The effect is cumulative, so it’s best to allow at least 30 days of regular use to see how your pet responds to hemp-derived CBD products. Individual results may vary.

  • Should I use CBD chews or CBD tinctures?
    • This depends solely on convenience and your pet’s preference. Tinctures, when given directly, usually take effect in a shorter time frame, about 30 minutes and can last for up to seven hours.

      Tinctures mixed with other substances can take one to two hours to take effect since they have to work their way through the digestive system.

  • Can I give my pet CBD products if they are on medications?
    • Hemp-derived CBD should not interfere with any medications your pet may be taking. However, it’s always recommended you talk to your veterinarian before adding anything to your pet’s regimen, especially if they are being managed for an ongoing illness or issue.

  • What ingredients are used in Paw CBD products?
    • Ingredients vary by product, but all of our offerings are made with non-GMO industrial hemp that’s grown right here in the U.S. Our extracted CBD is then combined with a range of ingredients to fill out our product suite, with all products being made in our GMP-certified labs. Please refer to our product pages or product packaging for ingredient details.

  • Is Paw CBD safe for pets with food allergies?
    • We use wholesome ingredients in all of our Paw CBD products and provide a full list of each package so you can easily identify any potential allergens your pet may have. If your pet has sensitivities, it is best to use our tinctures, rather than products made with food ingredients.

  • What are the recommended servings for Paw CBD?
    • It’s always recommended that you start with a lower serving of each product and see how your pet reacts. It can take up to 30 days of consistent use to see full results, as the effects of hemp-derived CBD are cumulative. Increase the serving gradually until you see desired results and be sure to maintain daily use for best results.

  • Can CBD be given daily?
    • Yes. Our CBD products are designed to be given daily, as it usually takes up to 30 days to allow the CBD properties to build up in the system. Maintaining a regular routine of CBD will allow for the best results.

  • Can I administer Paw CBD products together?
    • As long as you pay attention to the total combined serving suggestions, you can certainly use multiple Paw CBD products together.

  • How long will the results last?
    • This will vary based on a number of factors: weight, age, overall health, etc. Effects may take several hours, while it is best to maintain a CBD routine for at least 30 days.

  • Do you test your CBD products?
    • We regularly use third-party, ISO-certified labs to test all of our products from start to finish. We test to make sure the proper serving of hemp-derived CBD is present in each product. We also test to ensure that our products do not contain any other unwanted chemicals, metals, or additives.
