Your most asked questions, answered!

What is CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural compound (cannabinoid) found in the cannabis plant family. It is one of the most beneficial cannabinoids found in the cannabis family and is most predominately found in hemp plants. Read more about the science behind CBD and why it’s beneficial for you and your pet. 

Is pet CBD legal and regulated?

Under the Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived CBD products and their constituents are mostly legal in all 50 states if they contain a THC percentage of 0.3% or below. While they are mostly legal, they are not currently regulated. As a CBD company, it’s important to us that there are laws being created to regulate CBD to ensure that people can purchase CBD that is high-qualityOne of the organizations leading the charge is the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, which Pet Releaf is a part of. It stays up to date with the newest innovations, regulations, and policies within the industry. It prioritizes educating customers, policymakers, and businesses about the benefits and the safety of hemp-derived CBD, as well as advocating for legislation that ensures the safety and legality of CBD products for both humans and our beloved pets.

Will CBD give my pet psychoactive effects?

Pet CBD products will never get your pet “high”. There are also no known overdoses on full spectrum hemp oil among animals. 

How does CBD work in my pet’s body?

Humans and animals alike all have an endocannabinoid system (ECS). When CBD oil is consumed, it activates your dog’s ECS. The ECS then creates a two-way communication system between the brain and other systems in your pet’s body, such as the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, and more. This is why you may hear about CBD helping out in so many areas of the body.  

Can my pet become addicted to CBD?

There no evidence CBD can be addictive. 

How can CBD benefit my pet?

CBD may promote calmness, a healthy immune system, healthy hip and joints, and a healthy digestive system. We recommend administering your pet’s recommended usage amount daily to support their overall wellness.  

Do we need a prescription from our vet for CBD products?

No. Since all Pet Releaf products are 100% natural, you will not need a veterinarian to prescribe our products. We do recommend letting your vet know that you are using Pet Releaf products, so they have a full picture of your pet’s health profile. 

Can I give Pet Releaf products alongside the other medications or pharmaceuticals my pet is currently prescribed?

Yes. Pet Releaf products have no known contraindications and can safely be administered alongside the other medications your pet is on. We would always recommend consulting with your vet when introducing Pet Releaf products into your pet’s daily regimen. 

How do I know which product to purchase and how much to give my pet?

Find the perfect product for your pet by using our Product Finder. Our Product Finder offers custom product recommendations based on your pet’s age, weight, and health status. 

Start out with the product package’s recommended usage amount based on your pet’s weight and slowly increase the amount of product given until you see desired results. Each animal has a unique body and metabolism that impacts things like response time and usage, so results differ from pet to pet. Some pet parents see results within 30 minutes of administering products while others don’t notice an impact until a couple days after giving their companion the recommended usage. While you should monitor your pet’s response to determine the ideal amount of product to use, rest assured that there are no known or documented overdoses on a full spectrum CBD hemp product. You can find all the daily recommended usages for your pet directly on our packaging or by contacting our customer service team at [email protected] or calling 1-844-646-1646. 

It’s overwhelming how many pet CBD products are available. Why is Pet Releaf the best option for my pet?

As one of the first pet CBD companies, Pet Releaf is proud to have spearheaded a change in uncovering exactly what healthy means for your pet. We are passionate about creating and making truly healthy hemp-derived CBD pet products with honesty and integrity.  

To bring you the highest quality CBD pet products, we oversee the process from seed to sale, from plant to pet. Our hemp is sourced from US-based farms, using sustainable and regenerative practices, and grown with no herbicides or pesticides. We also extract from the entire hemp plant to retrieve all of the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plant including CBD to benefit your pet’s overall wellness as well as target specific areas in their body. From there, all the Pet Releaf products are made using whole food, human-grade ingredients that contain no grain, fillers, corn, wheat, soy, dairy, or chemical preservatives. After production, our products go through third-party laboratory testing monthly to ensure product quality and potency. You can view all  of our product testings and certifications at https://petreleaf.com/product_testing. 

To further demonstrate our difference, Pet Releaf is the first and only pet brand to receive program certifications from the three most trusted organizations in their respective industries: National Animal Supplement Council, U.S. Hemp Authority™, and USDA Organic on some products. 

What should I look for in a pet CBD brand to make sure it is high quality, as well as made with honesty and integrity?

While CBD is legal, it is not currently regulated. As a CBD company, it’s important to us that there are laws being created to regulate it to ensure that people can purchase CBD that is high quality and safe for their pets. Until then, it’s imperative that you filter through the products available to ensure you have a positive experience. We recommend seeking a pet CBD brand that creates products that meet the following criteria: 

  1. Sourced from US-based farms that use sustainable and regenerative practices 
  2. Free from herbicides or pesticides 
  3. Its CBD oil is full spectrum, which means it includes all of the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plant including CBD.  
  4. It uses Terpex™ technology to extract the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plants to ensure no toxic solvents are being used during the manufacturing process.  
  5. CBD hemp oil by itself is very concentrated and has a consistency similar to molasses so it must be mixed with something in order to be used as an oil. Its hemp oil should only be mixed with something safe like organic coconut oil to preserve the health benefits of the hemp oil.  
  6. Its products are tested regularly by third-party laboratories. The product testing ensures the quality and potency of the pet CBD products. Check the product’s website to see if the product tests and certifications are posted. They should be transparent and share it publicly.  
What Certifications has Pet Releaf earned?

We are honored to be the first and only pet brand to receive program certifications from the three most trusted organizations in their respective industries: National Animal Supplement Council, U.S. Hemp Authority™, and USDA Organic on some products. Those certifications guarantee a few important features. The USDA Certifications on our standard Hemp Oils guarantees they are 100% certified organic.  The USHA Certification on all of our Hemp Oils ensures our seedtosale traceability and safety of our productsOur NASC Certification ensures that our CBD pet products are properly labeled, have the accurate ingredients listed, and meet all of the supplement requirements. 

Can pets have the same CBD as humans? 

It all depends on the kind of CBD you are purchasing for yourself. If you’re going to your local dispensary, there may be a chance that you are purchasing CBD derived from the marijuana plant. Although marijuana and hemp both stem from the cannabis family, marijuana and hemp have many differences. The hemp plant is very low in THC and very high in CBD, while the marijuana plant is the exact opposite. Unfortunately, pets cannot metabolize THC the same way that humans do. It could be potentially dangerous for your pet to be administered a CBD oil that has high levels of THC and if that does occur, an emergency trip to your veterinarian may be in the best interest for your pet. We recommend going with a pet CBD brand for your beloved pet companion, as it’s important to make sure all ingredients are pet-friendly and that you’re administering the right potency based on your pet’s size.  

How long will one bottle of Pet Releaf hemp oil last my pet?

Each of our oil bottles contains 30 full droppers. In order to find out how long a bottle will last you, simply divide the daily recommended amount by 30!

Can my healthy pet take Pet Releaf CBD products?

Absolutely! Our CBD products may provide a boost to the immune system and a normal inflammatory response. Whether your dog is young or a senior, pets of all ages can benefit from CBD. 

Should I purchase a Pet Releaf chew or a hemp oil for my pet?

The method of administration should be tailored to the individual. On the other hand, a finicky small dog may not allow administration of a liquid directly into the mouth even though it is the best choice for exact dosing, and a concentrated extract may be excellent economical choice for a large dog. If you’re unsure of the right product for your pet, visit our product finder and answer a few simple questions so we can pair your companion with the perfect Pet Releaf product!

What is the Barking Dog Collection?

Every pet’s life is a work of art! The Barking Dog Collection is dedicated to Keith Haring, an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City Street culture of the 1980s. His iconic imagery of dogs & cats is a tribute to the love we share with our pets. In partnership with Plant Alchemy, we collaborated on The Barking Dog Collection to create products with a purpose. To showcase Keith Haring’s love for New York City, we developed two Edibites flavors that represent the diverse cultures and food scenes throughout Manhattan with Sushi representing Uptown and Pizza representing Downtown. You can complete the set with a blue, yellow or black bowl we created as part of the collection. Pet Releaf also donates the CBD-infused Edibites from The Barking Dog Collection monthly to organizations all across the United States as part of the Rescue Releaf initiative to help rescue and foster dogs as they adjust to new homes.
