CBD has many health benefits for both humans and dogs. Although there’s little research on CBD for dogs, there’s evidence that they can benefit from the plant in various ways, including anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, shiny coat, improved appetite, joint health, and arthritis.
There are some factors you need to consider before purchasing CBD for doggy.
Choose CBD with no THC
CBD can be found in both hemp and cannabis plants. However, it is CBD in hemp is more potent than in cannabis. CBD from cannabis contains greater than 0.3 percent THC, which is the psychoactive cannabinoid that provides a "high," whereas CBD from hemp is within the legal limit, which is. 0.3 percent.

While there is evidence to suggest that CBD of cannabis doesn't give the user a "high," it still contains a tiny percentage of THC. Any amount of THC is harmful to dogs and must be kept away from. It could cause diarrhea, vomiting, and a myriad of other adverse reactions.
Do not use Hemp Oil
Beware. The label is the place where manufacturers are going to sell you. A lot of manufacturers declare the CBD product in the form of "hemp oil" and claim it is beneficial for your health. Hemp oil is a source of no CBD and is therefore not suitable for dogs to use as a treatment.
If the oil is marketed with the words "hemp seed oil" it's perfectly legal to feed your dog when CBD is included in it. Always read the COA to confirm the quantity of CBD within the product.
