Our number one question:

Why CBD?

While CBD has numerous benefits for dogs and cats, here you'll find the most common reasons pet owners give it to their best friends.

About CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of a group of compounds (phytocannabinoids) that comes from the hemp plant. Many of these compounds have shown potential benefit as therapeutic agents to treat a wide variety of disease, but CBD is one of the largest chemical constituents of this group and has been shown to hold great promise in human and veterinary medicine. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, anxiety disorders, seizure disorders, cancer, and diseases of the immune system are all potential targets for CBD.

As a pet owner, what do I need to know about CBD?

CBD is not a psychoactive compound like THC. THC is the compound in marijuana that produces a euphoric “high.” CBD is a cannabinoid compound, also found in the cannabis and hemp plants, but does not alter perception, cognitive function or dexterity.

CBD is being actively studied in human and veterinary medicine. While CBD can be used as an adjunct or sole agent in the management of many conditions, the decision to use it should be made after consultation with your veterinarian.

Can you overdose on CBD?

The short answer? No. While it is possible to give your pet more CBD than is beneficial, the most typical side effect he or she will experience is drowsiness. If you want CBD to work properly, don’t overdo it. (And, we veterinarians should add, don't under-dose. CBD must be administered properly to achieve desired results.)

What is the evidence in favor of CBD?

Evidence in favor of CBD’s effects is vast. So vast, in fact, that we have dedicated an entire section of our website to highlighting recent research. For more information, please visit www.companioncbd.com/research

For what conditions has CBD been suggested and validated?

While research is still ongoing, the current data shows its effectiveness for conditions including the following:

- Anxiety
- Behavioral disorders
- Alleviation of cancer symptoms
- Seizure disorders
- Diseases of the immune system.

As more research is conducted, we predict this list will continue to grow.

Why is CBD good for dogs and THC bad for them?

While no adverse effects have been observed when administering large quantities of CBD to dogs (or cats), even small amounts of THC can prove harmful to them. Dogs have nearly four times the number of cannabinoid receptors in their brain as compared to humans. THC toxicity, therefore, is easily reached as THC has a far more dramatic and profound effect on dogs than on humans.

About CompanionCBD

Why should I give my pet CompanionCBD products?

We're vets. Caring about your pet's health and happiness is literally our job. With that in mind, we formulated our products using three goals:

1. Maximum efficacy

2. Excellent palatability

3. Ease of administration

We used the latest advancements in cannabis science to create a product that works. Our secret is no secret, though. We simply put enough CBD in our products to make a real difference. Not only are our products extremely effective, they taste good! With CompanionCBD's soft chews, you'll never have to force droppers of oil down your pet's throat again.

CBD is everywhere, so be honest: Won't any CBD do the trick? Why is yours so special?

We'll cut right to the chase: DO NOT give your pet CBD off the street. Do not do it. The marketplace is littered with cheap, adulterated products, many of which barely contain CBD at all. Worse, they might contain larger-than-disclosed amounts of THC or other contaminants such as heavy metals. While a little extra THC might not have an effect on you, it can be extremely toxic for your pets. Especially dogs.

Our products are confirmed free of contaminants and guarantee to provide the promised amount of CBD. We third-party verify and provide a certificate of analysis for every single batch. CompanionCBD's products were developed by veterinarians and have gained the trust of the veterinary community.

Is the veterinary consultation really free?

Yes. Yes it is. Your pet deserves nothing less than a CBD plan built specifically for him and his needs. Unfortunately, CBD is not a one-size-fits-all-conditions substance, so we want to help you in your journey. In addition to dispelling any myths or false statements about CBD your might have heard, our doctors will help you build a plan designed solely for your pet.
