CBD Oil and Dogs.


The question everybody has been asking lately is: Is CBD Oil for Dogs?

The answer is YES.

In this article, I am going to share with you just how much your dog can benefit from having CBD in its Diet.

CBD – What is it?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive, and non-toxic cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hemp.

It is one of the most abundant of the over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis/hemp.

Your dog’s bodies (and all mammals) were made to work with cannabinoids from the very beginning — their bodies even naturally produce cannabinoids!

This book has been recommended to us.  A great resource to help understand CBD.

How Can CBD Oil help Dogs?

CBD works with the ECS (Endocannabinoid System)

The ECS in our dog functions in the same way as our human ECS and CBD has the same benefits for us both.

  • Pain reduction for mature animals or animals suffering from arthritis or hip issues
  • Anti-convulsant for dogs suffering from seizures
  • Reduces anxiety, especially common for rescue dogs but can also help dogs adjusting to new home environments or for dogs who are highly strung
  • Increases appetite and reduces nausea and vomiting

Read more on CBD and the ECS in Humans, it works the same for our dogs.

Will my Dog get high from CBD?

No.  Your dog will NOT get high from CBD.

The stuff that causes the high feeling is THC and is found in cannabis, so don’t give them any products high in THC.

Is using CBD oil for my Dog illegal in New Zealand?

There are no laws regulating the use of CBD oil in pets at present in New Zealand.

CBD Oil Paws is an NZ company and has CBD Oil for dogs available.

You need to buy products that contain less than 0.3% THC (some won’t contain any THC), or pure CBD.

CBD is safe to use on your dog, no dog has died from using it.

Please contact us below if you have any further concerns or questions, we are more than happy to help.

Having a Happy Healthy Well Balanced Dog

I am a dog owner, I have 5 dogs.  They range from 12 years old to 8 months old.

They all get CBD in their diets.

Sam – The Oldest

The oldest dog now shows signs of benefits, his arthritis doesn’t affect him like it used to.

The two little dogs we have used to have severe anxiety when we left them home.

Now they are more content being home if we give them a CBD treat not long before we leave.

I have read so much on CBD, and although the scientific research is still a bit behind, people have been using CBD on their dogs for a long time and there have been no reported side effects, only positive results.

I hope this article has given you some insight into CBD and how it could benefit your dog.

I also aimed to help you make an informed decision about using CBD with your dog.

Please note, if your dog is on any current medications, I do advise to see advice from your vet before mixing CBD with Vet issued medication.

If you have any questions or comments or have your own feedback on the use of CBD in your dog or dogs, we would love to hear from you below.

Kind Wishes

  1. Hi Daisy
    I have a wee dog who is coming up 13 this year and when it gets windy, Libby suffers terribly from anxiety and I would really like to use CBD to help her with this.
    I live in New Zealand and would like to know if I can get it sent here without problems from the law restrictions
    I would appreciate any help you can offer

    • Hi Vicki
      That is not nice to hear that Libby suffers from anxiety. There is a lot of information around CBD and anxiety and I believe she will benefit a lot from the use of CBD.
      I am just awaiting a link that I can give you to offer you a discount at CBD Oil Paws, they have some CBD treats that I think will be perfect, that also have CBD oil. As soon as this information is available I will let you know and also update this article. You can get CBD products for your Pet in NZ – so thats really great news.
      Kind Regards
