Frequently Asked Questions

General CBD FAQs

  • 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 are no detectable levels of THC in any of our products. THC-free is defined as below the level of detection using valid scientific analytical tools.

  • What Are Cannabinoids?
    • Science classifies cannabinoids as fatty compounds – that are abundant in the hemp plant – that play vital roles in a variety of bodily systems. Mammals, including pets and people, have what is known as the endocannabinoid system. This means that CBD may provide many of the same potential benefits for both.

  • What Is the Endocannabinoid System?
    • The endocannabinoid system (or 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 bodily functions, including, but not limited to, sleep, appetite, mood, memory, and more.

  • Is CBD Oil Legal?
    • With the passage of the Agricultural Act of 2014, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill,” Congress paved the way for legal, but closely monitored industrial hemp growth on farms in the US. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp was declassified from a schedule I drug, allowing 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 the local and state 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 non-detectable levels of THC.

CBD and Pet Safety

  • Will CBD Get My Pet High?
    • CBD is one of the main non-psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis. Our products contain non-detectable levels of 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. Paw CBD products are third-party tested to ensure they are a THC-free* option that offers many potential benefits for your pets.

  • Can My Pet Overdose from CBD?
    • Because our CBD products contain non-detectable levels of THC, your pet will not experience an overdose when taking properly sourced, hemp-derived CBD products. Follow serving recommendations, adjusting as needed based on your pet’s response and overall needs.

  • Is Paw CBD Only for Dogs and Cats?
    • Paw CBD products are specially formulated with animals of every size in mind. As a naturally occurring compound, CBD can be given to pets as large as horses. Please follow the serving suggestions on each product packaging and consult a veterinarian if you have further questions. For more information, check out our CBD for dogs and CBD for cats education pages.

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

  • 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, we recommend you consult your veterinarian before adding anything to your pet’s regimen.

  • 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 ingredients on 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.

How to Use CBD with Pets

  • How Do I Give CBD Products to My Pet?
    • CBD products for pets can be given orally or topically, depending on what you both prefer. We offer a variety of options from CBD oil tinctures for dogs (and cats) to CBD chews for cats (and dogs), both flavored and unflavored with a range of different formulas, to make providing your pet with all the benefits of hemp-derived CBD as easy and convenient as possible. Please follow the instructions provided on our packaging for proper use.

  • 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 adjust as needed. CBD builds up in the system over time, 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 Oil Tinctures?
    • This depends solely on convenience and your pet’s preference. CBD tinctures, when given directly, usually can begin circulating in a shorter time frame, about 30 minutes and can last in your pet’s system for up to seven hours.

      CBD chews, on the other hand, may take one to two hours to begin interacting with bodily systems since they must be absorbed through the digestive system.

  • 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 of consistent use to allow the beneficial CBD properties to build up in the system. Maintaining a regular CBD regimen will allow for the best results.

  • Can I Combine 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 depending on the product and your pet, while it is recommended to maintain a CBD routine for at least 30 days to achieve optimal results.
