CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory, paired with all organic turmeric powder promotes healthy bones and connective tissue, helps with stiffness and soreness, and even arthritis in dogs. Recommended dosages call for 1, 2, or 3 whole bites, depending on weight. However, they have a convenient score line to break in half, making adjustments to dosing a breeze.

- Up to 25lbs: 1 whole bite daily ( 5 mg of CBD)

CBD Basics – Cannabis 101 for Pets
What is CBD?
CBD is short for “cannabidiol” and is an organic chemical compound found in cannabis. It has proven health effects and is found in high-concentrations in hemp. Hemp is the name for cannabis that does not have high concentrations (less than 0.3%) of THC. Marijuana is the term for cannabis with high concentrations of Delta-9 THC, which is the compound that creates that psycho-active “high”. Full-spectrum CBD or hemp products contain all of the cannabinoids and terpenes (essential oils) of the plant. This creates a more comprehensive effect, called the “entourage effect”.
Will CBD get my dog high?
No, because CBD comes from hemp, it has less than 0.3% of THC. It will in no way get your dog high, even if they wanted it to.
Why does CBD help my dog’s joint health?
Simply put, CBD triggers CB1 and CB2 receptors in an animal’s endo-cannabinoid systems (ECS). The ECS exists in all animals from humans down to the sponge. It helps to regulate many of the body’s organs and systems, such as the immune system, nervous system, brain, liver and more. By activating the ECS is tells it to put the body back into natural balance, calming or invigorating areas that may be under or over-reacting. This is how it can impact so many things – from anxiety, joint pain, mobility, chronic pain, sleep, cancer symptoms and more.
Honest Paws Relief Bites – Organic Ingredients
Organic ingredients are a great choice when selecting a product for your pet. You can be assured that you’re giving your dog ingredients that have not had contact with chemical pesticides or fungicides.
Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
Organic. Full-spectrum. When you see those items listed in the ingredients of a product, you know you’re on the right track. Unfortunately, there are many companies out there that market themselves as producers of CBD or hemp oil, but they compromise on quality in order to cut costs. With Honest Paws organic hemp oil you know that you are only getting the purest product.
Organic Turmeric – What is Turmeric for Dogs?
Turmeric is a spice that is yellow-orange in color. It gives curry its deep, earthy flavor and is commonly used in Indian and Thai dishes. Turmeric is a member of the ginger family. It’s a root that is native to Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Although turmeric root has been widely used in holistic health for hundreds of years in humans, its benefits for dogs has only recently been getting the recognition it deserves. There are many reasons to add turmeric to your dog’s health regime. From supporting joint health to relieving discomfort. Turmeric is an extremely important little spice that may just make a world of difference for your dog.
What is Curcumin
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. It is found in the roots and bulbs of the Curcuma longa plant. We’ve learned quite a bit about this primary active ingredient from the 6,000+ published studies on turmeric. In particular, Curcumin has antioxidant properties.
What is Turmeric Good For?
The health benefits of turmeric are very impressive. Let’s take a look!
Turmeric Helps Maintain A Normal Inflammatory Response in Dogs
Studies have shown that curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) supports a healthy inflammatory response in the body. Turmeric may help relieve inflammation associated with normal daily exercise and activity. Honest Paws Relief Bites also contain CBD which also has anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric magnifies this effect.
Turmeric also has powerful antioxidant properties. By fighting free radicals, antioxidants have the ability to support healthy aging. While free radicals exist and are naturally formed in the body, they can also develop on exposure to pesticides, processed dog food, chemicals, pollution, radiation, and toxins. Turmeric works to fight off these free radicals.
Using Turmeric for Discomfort
Turmeric is also great for relief from occasional discomfort associated with normal aging. As your dog ages, your dog’s mobility will naturally decline as well. Adding turmeric to your dog’s health regime is an effective way to support normal joint health.
Turmeric Supports Heart and Gut Health
Another great feature of turmeric is that it promotes heart and gut health, which is great news for your furry friend!
Turmeric Side Effects
Even though turmeric is all natural, there are some potential side effects in special cases. First, turmeric is a blood thinner. If your dog is already on another blood thinner, check with your veterinarian. Turmeric is also a binding agent. If your dog is dehydrated, it could pose other issues and lead to constipation.
Barley is a common ingredient in dry dog food and treats. What we love about this organic ingredient is that it is a good source of water-soluble fiber and beta-glucans. Beta-glucans help to lower cholesterol and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Oats also contain fiber (which is great for your dog’s digestive system) and beta-glucans. On top of that, oats are packed with vitamins and minerals that give your dog’s health a good boost.
Organic Peanut Butter
Fact: Dogs love peanut butter. This is what dogs love these treats and that means no challenges in getting them their CBD! The peanut-butter in this product is organic and made in the USA.
