CBD has taken over the pet care industry. Now, everyone wants to take advantage of the benefits CBD can offer their pets. What could be easier than adding it to their everyday meals? That's what makes CBD dog food so enticing.


There are very few brands that manufacture commercial dog food pre-made with CBD that you can buy at a pet store. Fortunately, making your own CBD dog food is easy and cost-effective. We'll tell you all about it in this simple guide, so join us!



What Is CBD Dog Food?

CBD dog food is a type of pet food that contains cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a compound present in cannabis plants. It does not produce the "high" associated with marijuana (that comes from THC), but it does have many potential benefits.


CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in your dog's endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS plays a major role in maintaining homeostasis (balance) in your dog's body. It regulates essential functions like sleep, appetite, digestion, immune response, memory, and mood.


There are many ways to give your dog CBD, and delivering it through their daily meals is a particularly convenient option. Now it's time to talk about the specific ways that CBD can benefit your pet.

Benefits of CBD Dog Food

CBD-infused pet foods offer many benefits by helping to support your dog's ECS. A well-functioning ECS is essential to maintaining overall wellness. Here are some of the roles CBD can play in your dog's life:


  • Offering relief from aching and discomfort
  • Promoting natural sleep
  • Soothing mental distress and agitated behavior
  • Supporting appetite and digestive processes
  • Promoting optimal skin and coat condition



How To Make My Own CBD Dog Food

Making your own CBD dog food is a lot easier than you might think. All you need is a bottle of HolistaPet's premium CBD oil for dogs. The easiest method is to simply mix the CBD oil into the commercial dog food of your choice. To determine how much CBD oil to give your dog, refer to the chart on our website. We generally recommend 0.25 mg of CBD (regular) up to 0.5 mg of CBD (strong) per pound of body weight.


If you feel ready for a bigger challenge, you can bypass the commercial pet food industry and make a meal for your dog from scratch. Talk to a veterinarian before you make any dog food at home to make sure you avoid any ingredients your pet might be allergic to. Here are some recipes you can try for your pup.
