Several companies have launched hundreds of health products including CBD for pets. Products have received complimentary comments from customers who say the products help dogs and cats stay calm and fight pain. As the federal government has not yet established standards for CBD, customers do not understand how much product should be given to their pets. Humans also use drops of CBD oil for pain.
CBD pet products sold ahead of government approval
CBD oil is everywhere and seems like it is in everything. Many consumers have heard of CBD pet products, especially if their pet lives with a chronic condition like pain or anxiety.
Those products hit the shelves because the federal government has not yet established standards for CBD that help people understand whether or not they help their pets and how much they should give them.

Some CBD pet products don’t actually have CBD
“You would be amazed to see that our analysis indicates that there are products for sale that have virtually no CBD. These are products with two milligrams per milliliter when an effective concentration would be between 25 and 75 milligrams per milliliter. There are a lot of companies trying to produce something that has a real benefit,” said Joseph Wakshalg, a veterinary scholar from Cornell University.
Still, there are numerous success stories that help fuel the $400 million CBD pet products industry that has grown more than 10-fold since last year and is expected to reach $1.7 billion by 2023, according to the cannabis research firm Brightfield Group.
Amy Carter, from St. Francis, Wisconsin, decided to ignore her vet’s advice and tried CBD pet products recommended by a friend to treat Bentley, her Yorkshire-chihuahua with epilepsy. Bentley’s attacks had become more frequent despite expensive medication.
“It’s amazing,” Carter said. “Bentley was having multiple seizures a week. That it’s only had six in the last seven months is amazing.”
CBD pet products don’t always work
Dawn Thiele, an accountant in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, said she bought CBD pet products for $53 at a local store in hopes of calming her Yorkshire during long car trips.
“I didn’t see any change in his behavior,” said Thiele. “The product is good, it just didn’t work on my dog.”
