what are CBD capsules for dogs?

HolitaPet’s CBD capsules for dogs are made with 100% plant-based ingredients. They contain no gelatin and are gluten-free! What can be better than CBD with none of the worries of harmful additives? Our CBD capsules contain a broad spectrum of natural cannabinoids derived from hemp. We also combine hemp seed powder with our cannabidiol to create a powerful blend with the soothing benefits of CBD. CBD capsules for dogs allow for precise serving every time, never leaving you with the doubt of possibly giving your dog too much or too little.

Broad spectrum CBD capsules are transformed from high-quality hemp into a compact, ingestible alternative for your dog. Skipping the possible messiness of CBD oil, capsules can simply be wrapped in a piece of deli meat or a piece of cheese that your dog can consume in one bite. Rest assured that our CBD capsules contain the same high-quality hemp used in all our products. 

CBD capsules for cats are exactly what they sound like! Just like their canine counterparts, CBD capsules can help felines maintain balance in their body while also reaping the soothing benefits of CBD.

What are the benefits & effects of CBD capsules for dogs & cats?

The endocannabinoid system is an intricate system that plays a large role in maintaining homeostasis in us and our pets. Here are a few functions of the ECS in your cat’s and dog’s bodies. 

  • Appetite and digestion
  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Learning and memory
  • Motor control
  • Sleep
  • Skin and nerve function

When CBD enters your pet’s bloodstream, it interacts with cannabinoid receptors. This interaction offers the ECS a helping hand. A properly functioning ECS is crucial for your dog or cat’s overall well-being.

How Do CBD Capsules For Dogs & Cats Work?

CBD capsules work the same way that the rest of our products do — supporting the endocannabinoid system. All animals have an endocannabinoid system, except insects. So no, don’t leave your CBD products out for flies to try!

Cannabidiol complements the ECS and helps regulate many vital functions. There are various components involved in the ECS, the most important of which are endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes.

  • Endocannabinoids are molecules made by your pet’s body. They’re similar to cannabinoids! Experts have identified two endocannabinoids so far: anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglyerol (2-AG). These help keep internal functions running smoothly. Think of this as a well-oiled machine!
  • Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body. CB1 receptors are mostly found in the nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in your pet’s peripheral nervous system, especially immune cells.
  • Enzymes are in charge of breaking down endocannabinoids once they’re done carrying out their function.

It’s no wonder that pet owners turn to CBD to aid their pet’s overall well-being. All of these components work together to help your pet relax during potentially stressful situations. CBD capsules can aid senior pets with their aging bodies and ease the stress of aging. Your dog or cat can become anxious due to decreased mobility that comes with age. CBD pills make a great option for pet owners who want to aid their pets with relaxation!

Frequently Asked Questions

A good rule of thumb for a pet owner serving any CBD products is to start with 1 to 2 milligrams for every 10 pounds of weight. This is easy for capsules, which have a consistently pre-measured 10mg of CBD in every capsule. If you’re using a different product — let’s say CBD hemp oil — it may come in various concentrations. The amount listed on the label is the total amount of CBD in the whole bottle.

But let’s turn back to capsules. Each bottle comes with 30 capsules, which means there are 300 milligrams total in the bottle.

For example, one capsule would suffice for a 10-pound dog. Large dogs may need 3 to 4 capsules to feel the effects of our CBD capsules. It roughly takes around 45 minutes to an hour for orally ingested CBD to start taking effect. Your pooch’s digestive system has to break down the capsule during the digestion process.

CBD servings are dependent on body weight and the type of condition which you are using it for. A recommended serving for cats is 2 to 4 milligrams for every 10 pounds of body weight. Again, hemp CBD oil comes in different concentrations, as do CBD pills or capsules. The bottle usually reads the total amount of CBD found in the entire bottle and should not be used as a serving guideline.

A cat’s serving is twice what we recommend for dogs because cats don’t have as many cannabinoid receptors as dogs. These purrfect animals need twice the amount of CBD to see the same effects. It’s always best to start low and go slow, so you’re able to observe how your cat will react.

One of the most appealing aspects of CBD is the fact that it presents very few potential side effects. In the rare cases where pets experience side effects, the consequences are quite mild and short-lived. You should be able to avoid any adverse results by sticking to a consistent portion of CBD. Still, there is a slight chance your dog might experience some of the following:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Increased appetite and thirst
  • Mild stomach upset

As with any ingestible product, there is a slight chance that your dog might have an allergic reaction. However, hemp allergies appear to be exceedingly rare among dogs and humans alike. It never hurts to talk with a veterinarian about your pet’s health history before giving them any new products.

In hemp, CBD is located in the aerial parts of the plant but not present in the roots or seeds. The aerial parts of the plant include the parts of the plant above the soil line, for example, the flowers, stems, and leaves. While hemp seed oil is made using hemp seeds, there is no CBD found in hemp seeds. The seeds do have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds. This makes hemp seeds a great, nutritious snack!

Although CBD comes from cannabis, federally legal CBD products must contain 0.3% THC or less. THC is the cannabinoid in cannabis that induces a “high” feeling in large amounts. On its own, CBD cannot intoxicate your dog. However, as mentioned above, CBD is a non-intoxicating compound that naturally occurs in hemp. CBD may help level out your pet’s mood if they experience feelings of nervousness in certain environments or around other people.


Some products contain trace amounts of THC, as it can strengthen CBD’s effects without causing a “high.” These are called full spectrum products. An example would be full spectrum CBD oil. Broad spectrum products take the THC out, and isolates contain nothing but CBD molecules. Guess what’s inside CBD capsules? CBD isolate powder! So your dog will only get the wonderful benefits of CBD.

As mentioned previously, unlike THC, CBD cannot intoxicate your dog. This also includes your cat! CBD can benefit all animals with an ECS, but it shouldn’t ever cause intoxication.

Reports of side effects are minor and will eventually fade. Keep in mind that for your cat to have a bad reaction from too much CBD, it would need to have ingested an extremely large amount of the product. In this case, you’d have to give your kitty about 2,000 capsules to give it too much to handle. While we always recommend you start with a low amount and only increase it slowly, taking too much CBD is hard to come by.

A few side effects that may occur from taking too much CBD are:

  • Vomiting
  • Lethargy
  • Diarrhea

Yes. Federal law in the United States allows for hemp-derived CBD products with up to 0.3% THC by volume. Fortunately for dogs, CBD capsules for pets contain no THC whatsoever, so you can rest assured that your pet is getting a premium product that complies with all legal regulations.

Puppies can benefit from CBD, just like adult dogs. CBD treats also make a great incentive during obedience training with your puppy. However, you need to adjust the quantity of CBD when you give it to a small dog. As a reminder, the recommended amount of CBD for pets is typically 1-2 mg per every 10 pounds of body weight. You can apply this logic to big dogs, small dogs, and puppies alike.

Yes! Senior dogs are some of our favorite customers, and they can reap so many rewards from CBD products. Many dogs experience age-related physical issues that call for the kind of soothing relief CBD provides. Try supporting them with CBD capsules or HolistaPet’s CBD soft chews, which we make specifically for senior dogs and pets with dental problems.

If you’ve ever tried giving your dog a pill before, you know it can be challenging, but we have some helpful suggestions to make the process easier for you and your pet. You will have a hard time getting any pet to take a pill by itself, but you can try these methods instead:

  • Pill Pockets: Pill pockets are dog treats with a hole in the center where you can insert a pill or capsule. You can find pill pockets at many pet stores, or you can simply wrap a capsule in a slice of deli meat or cheese, which should be just as appealing to your pup.
  • Pill Dispensers: To get your dog to swallow a pill, you must place the capsule all the way in the back of their mouth, past the hump of the tongue. It can be dangerous to do this with your fingers in case the dog bites down. Pill dispensers grip the capsule instead of your fingers so that you can deposit it in your dog’s mouth quickly and safely.
  • Add the Powder to Food: One final option is to use only the powder within the capsule rather than the capsule itself. HolistaPet capsules come in two halves that are easy to break open. Then, you can add the powder to your dog’s normal food.

Ingestible CBD products typically kick in 45-60 minutes after taking them. The onset time may vary slightly depending on biological factors like your dog’s gender, weight, and metabolism.

The effects of ingestible CBD products such as capsules and usually last between 6 and 8 hours. That is longer than any other type of CBD product on the market!

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend giving your pet CBD daily to help maintain homeostasis, which is the optimal state of balance in the body. Maintaining homeostasis is an essential part of any animal’s overall wellness, which is why daily CBD may benefit both your dog and you!

CBD is useful for various short and long-term needs, so different pets might benefit from it at different times. If your dog has an immediate physical or mental need, you should address it ASAP. Since CBD capsules take about an hour to kick in, it’s best to give them to your dog as soon as the need arises. Otherwise, you can give your dog a CBD capsule once a day to promote homeostasis in the long term.
