How-to Product Guide

Honest Paws CBD Oils are made with organic full spectrum hemp oil with naturally occurring CBD, organic ingredients, and natural ingredients.

Honest Paws CBD tinctures contain organic, full-spectrum hemp oil with naturally occuring CBD sourced from hemp plants in Colorado. We use CO2 extraction to extract the oil from the hemp plant.

Full-spectrum hemp oil with naturally occuring CBD oil is considered the highest quality, most effective CBD oil. This is because instead of just containing CBD, it contains a full range of cannabinoids (like CBD) and terpenes.

Your CBD oil will vary in color but anything from clear to golden yellow is normal. The aroma will vary as well. Some bottles will have no aroma whereas others will have a slight earthy smell from the hemp. 

Lastly, we use MCT oil as a carrier. MCT oil is derived from coconut oil. So if your pet has a sensitivity or allergy to coconut oil, we do not recommend this product for your pet.

Proper Dosage For Dogs?

Active ItemInactive Item

The 1000mg Wellness CBD Oil contains 1000mg of CBD and 30mL of liquid. Each dropper contains ~33mg of CBD (~1mL of liquid).

How Much?

Dosage is an art - not a science. Meaning most pet parents will need to play around with the amount of CBD they give your pet until they see the desired effects. 

With that said, here are some tips and tricks to get you started.

Dogs Under 25lbs

For small dogs, we recommend starting with ⅛ of a dropper per day. If you do not see desired effects, you can slowly increase the dose by increments of ⅛. 

Example: If you gave your dog ⅛ of a dropper on Monday but did not see results. You can increase to ¼ of a dropper on Tuesday and so on and so forth.

Dogs 25lbs - 50lbs

For medium dogs, we recommend starting with ½ of a dropper per day. If you do not see desired effects, you can slowly increase the dose by increments of ½. 

Example: If you gave your dog ½ of a dropper on Monday but did not see results. You can increase to 1 full dropper on Tuesday and so on and so forth.

Dogs Over 50lbs

For large dogs, we recommend starting with ¼ of a dropper per day. If you do not see desired effects, you can slowly increase the dose by increments of ¼. 

Example: If you gave your dog ¼ of a dropper on Monday but did not see results. You can increase to ½ of a dropper on Tuesday and so on and so forth.

When to Give CBD?

Active ItemInactive Item

Consistency is Key

When it comes to CBD, consistency is key. The only exception to this rule is if your pet’s discomfort is situational. For instance, if your pet experiences travel stress before a car ride or a flight, you can save your CBD for those situations. Otherwise, if your pet is dealing with an ongoing issue, you will want to give them CBD on a regular basis.

What Time of the Day To Give CBD

So when should you give your pet CBD? Similar to amount, there is no magical “one size fits all” answer. However, we can offer some recommendations based on why your pet is receiving CBD in the first place. 

Situational Stress: If your pet experiences situational stress (car rides, vet visits, etc). We recommend giving your pet the full, recommended amount about 60 minutes before the stressful event takes place.

Generalized Stress: If your pet gets stressed out when you leave for work, we recommend giving 75% of the recommended amount in the AM before you leave for work and 25% in the evening.

Mild to Moderate Discomfort: For pets experiencing discomfort, we recommend splitting the recommended amount in half. Give 50% in the AM and 50% in the PM. If your pet is having trouble falling asleep due to their discomfort, it is acceptable to increase the nighttime amount. 

Severe Discomfort / Post-Op Discomfort: For pets with more severe discomfort, we recommend giving CBD more frequently throughout the day. For instance, you could give your pet the full amount in the AM, ½ the recommended amount at lunch, and the full amount in the evening. If your pet is having trouble falling asleep due to their discomfort, it is acceptable to increase the nighttime amount.

Mild to Moderate Tremors/Convulsions: If you are using CBD to prevent or treat mild to moderate tremors or convulsions, we recommend splitting the amount in half and giving 50% in the AM and 50% in the PM.

Severe Tremors/Convulsions: If you are using CBD to prevent or treat severe tremors or convulsions, we recommend giving the full, recommended amount twice per day, once in the AM and once in the PM.

Allergies: If your pet suffers from seasonal allergies, we recommend giving ½ the recommended amount in the AM and ½ the recommended amount in the PM. Or - if they have an allergic episode - we recommend giving them a full, recommended amount on the spot to help soothe their irritation. 

Once again, these are general recommendations. It is perfectly okay to use this as a place to start and then adjust based on what works for your pet. Please contact the Honest Paws customer service for assistance if you’re not seeing results.

How To Give CBD Oil to Your Pet

Active ItemInactive Item

We generally recommend either squirting the CBD oil directly into your pet’s mouth or mixing it in with their food. However, if you mix it in, make sure that your pet eats their entire meal so as not to miss out on any of the CBD.

Baking With CBD Oil

Active ItemInactive Item

We generally don’t recommend baking CBD oil into homemade treats as the heat can affect the efficacy of the CBD oil. If you want CBD treats, we highly recommend our Bites or Soft Chews

Mixing CBD Products

Active ItemInactive Item

Can you mix Honest Paws CBD products? Absolutely. Feel free to switch up your products however you like. All of our products have clear labels showing how much CBD is in each amount. As long as you are giving your pet the amount of CBD that works for them, it doesn’t matter what products you use. 

Mixing CBD With Medication

Active ItemInactive Item

We always recommend consulting with your veterinarian before starting CBD. This is especially the case when your pet is already on other medications. While CBD is considered safe, it does have the potential to interact with prescription medication.

Keep in mind that not all veterinarians are legally allowed to talk about CBD. Depending on what state you live in, your veterinarian could be penalized and potentially lose their license for advising pet owners on CBD oil. We recommend seeking out a holistic veterinarian who understands CBD and is willing to advise you.

How To Store CBD Oil

Active ItemInactive Item

CBD oil is best stored in a cool, dry place. Be sure to seal the lid securely to keep it fresh. 

You do not need to refrigerate your CBD oil. The only reason you may want to refrigerate your CBD oil is if you use it only on rare occasions (for example: prior to air travel with your pet). Keeping your CBD oil in the refrigerator may extend shelf life. 

You should never freeze your CBD oil. If CBD oil freezes in transit, please contact our customer service team about a replacement.

We use organic, full-spectrum hemp oil with naturally occurring CBD your pet will love.
Full-spectrum CBD oil is considered the highest quality, most effective CBD oil. This is because instead of just containing CBD, it contains a full range of cannabinoids (like CBD) and terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic oils that come from the same glands as CBD in the hemp plant. We use terpene profiles that promote the desired effect.

For instance, our Calming Bites have a terpene profile that is known to promote relaxation and stress-relief. While our Relief Bites have a terpene profile that is known for supporting healthy bones and joints.
