Types of CBD for Pets: CBD Treats vs CBD Oil
When you begin your search for cbd for pets, you may notice there are multiple methods for giving CBD to your pet. The two most popular methods for giving CBD to pets are CBD treats and CBD Oil. Choosing which option is best for your pet is a personal choice and may depend on your pet’s preferences. While many pets do not have an aversion to the taste of CBD Oil, some may prefer the taste of CBD oil hidden inside of a yummy treat!
Can I Make My Own CBD Pet Treats?
Yes! While there are many CBD dog treats and CBD cat treats for sale, it is just as easy to make your own at home.
There are many recipes available online, but one major thing to consider when thinking about making your CBD Pet Treats is making sure you do not compromise the integrity of your CBD. Depending on the type of CBD you have and the carrier oil it is in, it will have a specific smoke point. If you are baking your CBD treats, make sure you do not bake at a higher temperature than the smoke point of the carrier oil. For instance, the Source CBD Pet Oil is made with Olive Oil, which has a typical smoke point of 374 - 405 degrees.
To ensure you keep the full integrity of your CBD oil and allow your pet to enjoy its full range of benefits, we recommend opting for no-bake cbd pet treats!
