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 CBD oil contained in Paw CBD tinctures, treats, and balm from industrial hemp to ensure that there is absolutely no THC in any of our products.
  • Is CBD oil legal?
    • The passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill,” by Congress, paved the way for legal, closely monitored industrial hemp growth on farms in the U.S. 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.
  • Can I purchase CBD without a prescription?
    • Yes, our CBD is legal to purchase and use in all 50 states without a prescription. In accordance with the 2018 Farm Bill, all of our Paw CBD products use CBD extracted from industrial hemp and are veterinary processed and 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. Because animals have an endocannabinoid system just like humans, CBD products made from hemp can help your pet with an array of issues, including anxiety, sleep, joint function, digestive issues, and pain.
  • 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, pain, and memory.
  • How does CBD work?
    • CBD affects the body by triggering the receptors of the ECS within your brain and nervous system. These receptors regulate various body parts and systems – results may vary based on the reason for using CBD.
  • Can my pet overdose from CBD?
    • Paw CBD contains only safe, nontoxic, naturally occurring ingredients. Research has shown that CBD is safe for both human and animal use, with little-to-no side effects. Follow dosing 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 pet, including horses. Please follow dosing instructions on each product packaging. Paw CBD products are made with natural, non-GMO ingredients you can feel good about giving your pet.
  • How can CBD benefit my pet?
    • CBD is known for its general health and wellness benefits. Because all mammals have an endocannabinoid system that is positively affected by CBD, pets often enjoy the same general health and wellness benefits we do with regular CBD use.
  • Will CBD help with my pet’s medical condition?
    • FDA regulations prohibit us from discussing any diseases or medical conditions in relation to CBD products. However, we recommend you try Paw CBD products on a consistent basis (at least two to three weeks) to further assess the effects on your pet’s health.

      We also urge you to talk to your veterinarian before adding any new supplements to your pet’s health regimen. We’re so confident you and your pet will love Paw CBD, we offer a money-back guarantee on all of our products.

  • Is Paw CBD recommended by veterinarians?
    • Our products are veterinarian-formulated and third-party lab tested to provide your pet with safe, natural options for their overall health and wellbeing. We always recommend talking to your veterinarian before adding any new supplements 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 treats, both flavored and unflavored, to make providing your pet with all the natural benefits of CBD as easy and convenient as possible. Our packaging includes the proper application instructions for each product.
  • How do CBD tinctures work?
    • All mammals have specific CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors located in their brain and central nervous systems. CBD interacts with these receptors that make up the ECS, allowing essential phyto-nutrients to be supplied as needed. Because our tinctures are made with broad spectrum CBD and taken under the tongue, the beneficial properties are delivered quickly and efficiently to the proper bodily systems.
  • How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
    • 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 dose when beginning a daily CBD regimen and adjusting as needed. The effect of CBD is cumulative, so it’s best to allow two to three weeks of regular use to see how your pet responds. Individual results may vary.
  • Should I use CBD treats or CBD tinctures?
    • This depends solely on convenience and your pet’s preference. Tinctures can be added to your pet’s food or given directly, and treats are taken orally.

      CBD tinctures, when given directly, usually take effect in about 30 minutes and can last for up to seven hours. Tinctures, when mixed with food, or treats, can take one to two hours to take effect.

  • Will my pet have side effects when using Paw CBD?
    • Recent research has shown that there are little to no side effects when using CBD for overall health and wellness. All Paw CBD products are naturally made with U.S. organically grown CBD oil. While there is no “high” or intoxication association with CBD, some pets may experience signs of drowsiness.
  • Can I give my pet CBD products if they are on other medications?
    • CBD is a natural supplement and 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?

  • What are the recommended servings for Paw CBD?

    • Yes, it is designed to be given daily as it usually takes two to three weeks to build up in the system to experience the full effects.
