You’ve probably heard of CBD hemp chews for dogs so let’s dive right into why you should consider going with Honest Paws products! If you want to learn more about CBD and the benefits it offers your dog, keep reading, because we’ll get to that a little later!

Honest Paws CBD Hemp Chews for Dogs

Honest Paws Soft Chews are packed with goodness. We offer Calm Chews that promote relaxation in dogs with nervous dispositions, as well as Mobility Chews that enhance bone and joint health in dogs with occasional joint stiffness and discomfort.

Calm Chews: What’s Inside?

Let’s look at what’s inside the Calm Chews and how these ingredients help dogs with elevated stress levels.

  • Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil: Dogs, like people, have an endocannabinoid system. This system helps to regulate things like appetite, memory, mood, and sleep. CBD interacts with that system, and one way this interaction plays out is that it helps to promote relaxation.

  • L-Theanine: L-Theanine is an amino acid that promotes relaxation, and in turn can help dogs sleep better.

  • Tryptophan: Much like L-Theanine, Tryptophan is an amino acid that promotes a calm demeanor and improves sleep.

Mobility Chews: What’s Inside?

  • Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil: Hemp oil does not only help with nervousness or stress in dogs. Studies suggest that it also interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help ease discomfort in dogs with mobility issues.

  • Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine HCL: Chondroitin and Glucosamine both form part of the structure of cartilage, which is a tissue cushioning joints. Although your dog’s body produces both Chondroitin and Glucosamine, it can also be given as a supplement. These two components work together to maintain healthy bones, joints, and connective tissue, and ease occasional joint stiffness.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is found throughout the body, including in skeletal tissue and synovial fluid. Synovial fluid lubricates the joints, so this ingredient in the Mobility Chews does wonders to enhance and promote bone and joint health.

  • Boswellia Serrate Powder: Boswellia is a herb extracted from the Boswellia Serrate tree. Boswellia is believed to promote a healthy inflammatory response, which may help to ease the joint stiffness that many dogs experience due to normal, everyday activity.

Perfect for Small Dogs and Golden Oldies

Some dogs simply love a little crunch when it comes to treats. But crunchy isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. The Honest Paws soft hemp chews for dogs are great for smaller dogs with tiny teeth. A soft chew is also perfect for older dogs who may have difficulty biting down on harder hemp dog treats, such as the Honest Paws Bites.

Different Types of CBD Products

There are a wide variety of CBD products out there. From oils and tinctures to delectable dog treats in all shapes and sizes. The product you choose will depend entirely on your dog’s needs. Some products are designed purely to boost your dog’s overall health and wellness, whereas others might be tailored for dogs, with say, high stress levels, occasional joint stiffness, or seasonal allergies.

Hemp Oil and Tinctures

Depending on Fido’s needs, you may opt for an organic, full spectrum hemp oil, or a tincture. Rest assured that should you opt for a tincture from Honest Paws, any added ingredients are of the highest quality. Only the best for your furbaby! You can find tinctures to enhance mobility, provide relief, boost wellness, and promote calm and relaxation. Here’s what’s we offer:

Honest Paws Bites

Nothing says true love like treating your pup with an organic hemp bite. As with the Honest Paws CBD oil and tinctures, you’ll find puptastic relief, mobility, wellness, and calming treats for Fido that will give him exactly what he needs to keep that tail wagging.

Your dog will absolutely love these peanut butter, creamy coconut, or turmeric flavored treats!

Other Delectable Honest Paws Products

  • Calm Peanut Butter: Is there anything more heavenly on this earth than peanut butter? Yes. Peanut butter with added CBD oil to help your nervous dog relax.

  • Wellness Coconut Oil: We all know how delicious and nutritious coconut oil is. Add some CBD oil to the mix, and everything from your dog’s skin to their immune system will get a welcomed boost.

  • Relief Pet Balm: This natural, topical balm doubles up as a paw and snout protector that protects Fido from the elements while you are off on your next adventure.

Honest Paws Hemp Chews for Dogs Dosage

Honest Paws CBD comes with virtually zero side effects. With that said, you want to find the optimal amount of CBD for your dog so as not to give too much or too little. The proper amount of CBD is based on their weight. And as with most things, we always recommend starting conservatively and then gradually increasing the CBD from there.

Here is a rundown of the correct dosage of Honest Paws Soft Chews

  • Less than 25 lbs: one whole chew per day

  • 25 - 50 lbs: two whole chews per day

  • Over 50 lbs: 3 whole chews per day

Note: The dosage for Honest Paws Soft Chews and Bites is the same.

Signs You Have Found the Best CBD For Dogs

From food and supplements to treats and toys, there are more pet products to choose from than ever before. We only want what’s best for our furkids, but where does one start the overwhelming task of choosing the perfect product that is safe, effective, and a good exchange of value?

Narrowing down the options is quite simple when you know what to look for in a quality product. Here are a few things to look out for when you’re taking on the task of finding the right product for your dog:

Lab Tested

Products that have not been lab tested should raise a red flag. If it hasn’t been tested, where is the proof that the ingredients are safe and fit for canine consumption? Always look out for a label that says the product has been tested in a lab. Lab-tested products have nothing to hide! We're proud to say that all of our products at Honest Paws are lab-tested to ensure safety.

Organic

Always go organic. When you buy organic products, you know that whatever you’re giving Fido has not been exposed to any toxic contaminants such as pesticides or fungicides.

Honest Paws products check all of these boxes. They are all lab-tested, they contain only organic ingredients, and as an added bonus, all products are %100 USA made!

NASC-Certified

When looking for CBD for your pet, it is important to find a brand that is NASC-certified. The National Animal Supplement Council came about when it was clear that no one was regulating the animal supplement industry. The lack of regulation resulted in a myriad of companies selling subpar, sometimes harmful, products that contain little to no of the supplement in mind. In fact, just last year it was reported that the vast majority of CBD products contained little to no CBD. When you opt for a CBD brand that is NASC-Certified, you know you are shopping with an ethical brand that is dedicated to providing you with high-quality products.

What is CBD?

More CBD products for pets are filling up shelves (and online stores) than ever before. Some pet parents are already singing the praises of these products, but if you’re late to the party, don’t worry! Now is as good a time as any to let your curiosity get the better of you and begin to navigate the waters of the CBD world. From CBD oils and tinctures to treats like hemp chews for dogs: there is something out there for everyone!

Any pet parent only wants what’s best for their furkids. Although word on the street is that CBD products are amazing for Fido, it is the responsibility of every dog owner to know and understand exactly what it is they are feeding their dogs. This goes from kibble to any dietary supplement you plan on adding to their healthcare regime.

The same goes for CBD. Before giving it to Fido, it’s probably best to do your homework and understand exactly what CBD is. Therefore, and without further ado, let’s dive right in!

We’ll use cannabis as a starting point. Many people might confuse the terms cannabis, hemp, and marijuana, but you can’t just throw them into a box and call them “pot”. Both hemp and marijuana form part of the Cannabaceae family. What differentiates these two strains of the cannabis plant is the amount of THC they contain.

CBD and THC

Cannabis plants contain many different cannabinoids. Two of the most prevalent cannabinoids in the cannabis plant are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The main difference between the two is the THC levels the plant has. THC is a psychoactive component that makes you high. CBD does no such thing. Now, let’s talk about hemp and marijuana!

The difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of THC they contain. In order to qualify as hemp, the plant may contain no more than 0.3% THC. Plants that contain over 0.3% THC are marijuana plants.

Will CBD Make My Dog High?

If you are purchasing hemp-derived CBD from a reputable company like Honest Paws? Absolutely not. CBD oil, tinctures, or any CBD product for that matter will not make your dog high. Remember, CBD products that have been derived from hemp only contain trace amounts of THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient responsible for causing a high.

The Benefits of CBD Products for Dogs

CBD products are popular for a reason. People have tried and tested them, and have been left with only the best results possible. CBD influences and works magic on our central nervous and immune systems. Let’s look at how far the benefits of CBD reach within our (and our canine companions’) bodies.

CBD Promotes Relaxation

CBD is amazing for dogs that are easily set on edge and are prone to elevated stress levels. It can promote a calm demeanor in distressed dogs and help them to maintain a normal disposition. If your dog has trouble coping with external stressors, like traveling or being left alone for long periods of time, a calming chew or two can do wonders to help Fido find his chill.

CBD Supports Healthy Bones and Joints

CBD supports joint and bone health. It is particularly great for dogs who have occasional joint stiffness. It helps to maintain healthy bones, joints, and connective tissue, which are all important to keep Fido chasing balls and living his best doggo life.

Some dogs may experience joint stiffness as they age. Others may experience occasional joint stiffness as a result of daily activity. Either way, CBD can help support these dogs and improve their quality of life.

CBD Supports Skin Health

If your dog has seasonal allergies or sensitive skin, CBD can go a long way in helping to support and boost skin health. It really is a great alternative to add to your dog’s care plan if seasonal allergies constantly get the best of them.

There is no more need for Fido to scratch his way through the seasons!

Does CBD Have Side Effects?

It is very unlikely that your dog will experience any negative side effects from the CBD oil. Worst case (and very unlikely) scenario: it may make your dog somewhat tired or lethargic if they ingest too much CBD.

The added ingredients in the Honest Paws hemp chews for dogs are only of the highest quality. However, it is always a good idea to introduce any new addition to your dog’s healthcare regime slowly. That way you can monitor your dog and their response to the new addition and can stop giving it to them if you observe any adverse effects.

Hemp Chews for Dogs: A Final Word

Being a responsible pet parent means doing your homework. It means making sure that you do what you can to make sure your fur-child is receiving all the care they need.

Nothing hurts more than to see our dogs having a bad time. Some dogs lose the spring in their step as they get on in years. Others lose out on the joy in life because their nerves constantly get the better of them. Whatever the problem may be for your four-legged friend, chances are there is something you can do about it.

If your dog has mobility issues or needs help to cope with external stressors, we’ve got you covered. Honest Paws products check all the boxes. They’re organic, lab tested, hemp-derived, made in the USA, and NASC-certified. Not to mention, they are designed purely with the intention of helping to improve the quality of life of furkids across the US.
