CBD and Pets
CBD and Pets
Our pets are part of our family. We don’t know what we would do without the unconditional love, joy and silliness they give us every day. And because we love them as family members, and always want the very best for them to live a healthy and happy life. That includes giving them the benefits of CBD.
What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the flowers and buds of cannabis (marijuana or hemp plants). CBD, however, doesn’t produce the “high” associated with marijuana because it doesn’t contain the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
To clarify, hemp and marijuana both come from the cannabis plant but contain different levels of THC. Marijuana can contain as much as 30% THC. While NYOS Hemp CBD has zero.
All animals, like humans, have an endocannabinoid system that has beneficial capabilities of interacting with the chemical compounds found in cannabinoids like CBD.
What benefits does CBD oil do for your pets?
CBD can be used in a variety of beneficial ways:
- Calming Anxiety/Hyperactivity
- Calm Aggressiveness
- Supports the Immune System
CBD oil can be given to calm a pet as needed ahead of particularly stressful situations like a long car ride, visiting the vet or the groomer. CBD can also be a great help for calming pets on holiday with lots of people around, 4th of July or New Year fireworks.

How much CBD oil should I give my pet?
This depends on the size of your pet. As with all supplements, we recommend starting with a minimal dose and slowly building up as needed. We’ll use a dog as an example:
We recommend starting with a daily range of one to two times a day:
- 1mg-4mg CBD for smaller pets for every 10 pounds of body weight.
- 4mg-8mg CBD for medium pets for every 25 pounds of body weight.
- 8mg-12mg CBD for large pets for every 50 pounds of body weight.
- 12mg-16mg CBD for extra large pets for every 100 (and over) pounds of body weight.
* The intensity of the dosage depends on the type of physical condition being treated. NYOS products are veterinary approved, but please check with your veterinarian for additional dosage requirements for your individual pet.
Also, NYOS hemp-based CBD tinctures and chews have ZERO levels of THC. Which means our CBD products will not give your pet a “high” Our high-quality, certified CBD products, only have the benefits of Broad Spectrum, THC- free, Phytocannabinios-Rich terpenes present in the hemp plant, without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC
How do I know if CBD is safe for my pet?
The best way to be sure a CBD (cannabidiol) product is safe is to look for a Lab Results/ certificate of analysis to ensure that the product contains what it states on the label. All of NYOS CBD products are tested with the lab results and certificate of analysis available for review on our site.
