Pet Releaf Edibites vs. Boom Bars: What Are The Differences?

What are Boom Bars and Edibites?

At Pet Releaf, we offer a diverse line of supplement products to help benefit your pup’s overall health! Whether they come in the form of Hemp Oils, Edibites, Topicals, or Boom Bars—we’ve got your pet’s health in mind every step of the life cycle. As Pet Releaf Edibites and Boom Bars make delicious supplement bites for your dogs, we want to break down the differences for both so you can decide which one you want to start supplementing or if you want to start incorporating both into their daily lifestyle!

One Has CBD & One Has Hemp Protein

While a majority of our products include CBD hemp oil sourced from our USDA Certified Organic Hemp Farm, our Boom Bars only include hemp protein, which is also sourced from the same farm. Although CBD and hemp protein are both extremely beneficial for your dog’s health, they contain some key differences. Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is activated when CBD enters the body. When the ECS is stimulated, this system can create a two-way communication between the brain and other systems in your pet’s body. Which is why you may hear that CBD can help with so many different issues in the human and animal body! 

Hemp protein, although it does not contain CBD, is rich in all 9 essential amino acids, which makes it a complete protein. They’re also rich in vitamins and minerals like fiber to help support a healthy digestive system as well as help keep your pup full for longer. As you can tell, hemp protein is still a very beneficial supplement to add to your pup’s diet despite there being zero CBD involved.

A Boom Bar For Each Situation

If you’re looking for a way to supplement your pup before a long hike, after a day at the dog park, or to help promote longevity, we have options for all with our Boom Bars. Our Boom Bars are the ultimate hemp protein supplement available in three different varieties. Longevity to help promote wellness for senior and aging dogs to help them feel youthful. Then we have our Energize variety which is perfect to use as an all-natural energy booster to help your dog gear up for a long hike or walk. Lastly, we have our Recovery variety! Our Recovery Boom Bar is perfect for after a crazy day of play with their best fur friend at the park. This bar is filled with valuable ingredients for your dog that can help their bodies recuperate after all the roughhousing during the day. There are 3 servings per bar, so you can always break the bar up into three pieces to either share with multiple dogs in the house or to split between days.

Choose Your Dog’s Favorite Flavor

Each and every one of our Edibites are infused with our CBD hemp oil and come in numerous flavor options to satisfy your pup’s palate. We have savory flavors as well as sweet flavors, such as Pizza, Sushi, Peanut Butter & Carob Swirl, Sweet Potato Pie, Blueberry & Cranberry, and Peanut Butter & Banana. Our Edibites are great to supplement for your pup’s overall health as well as more minor situational anxiety and beginning stages of joint discomfort. Since CBD has a half life of 9 hours, we recommend splitting your dog’s recommended usage amount between the morning and evening so they’re covered for at least 18 hours of the day. You can get your pup’s recommended usage amount on the back of our bags and on our Pet Releaf Edibites product pages. 

Should You Use CBD Oil or Hemp Protein

If you’re wondering whether CBD or hemp protein makes the most sense to use as a supplement for your pup, we’re here to help! When your pup is suffering from situational anxiety, from either loud noises like fireworks or going to the vet, you’ll definitely want to lean towards CBD. As CBD has calming and soothing properties for your pup, this is a great way to help them relax during stressful moments. Another example would be joint or hip discomfort! We’d recommend administering CBD daily to your pup if they struggle with any stiffness or discomfort as it can help enhance joint and bone health. 

With hemp protein, you would use this as a daily supplement for your pup’s overall health status! As we have varieties for every part of your day with our Energize, Recovery, and Longevity—these can be easily implemented into your pup’s lifestyle. So if you live an active lifestyle with your pup or go on occasional long walks and hikes, our Energize is great to supplement before the activity, while our Recovery is perfect for after the activity. When your dog starts to age or is a senior pup already, we’d recommend our Longevity Boom Bar to help them feel and look their best! This doesn’t mean that you have to choose one product or the other, as you can incorporate both into your pup’s life. Depending on if your pet’s health needs are more serious, you’ll want to lean more towards our CBD pet products.

If your pup struggles with more serious situational anxiety or discomfort, then we’d recommend upgrading to one of our Hemp Oils for pets if you don’t see results with our Edibites! Make sure to get your pet’s free product recommendation by using our usage calculator.
