Now that we have talked about the high-quality ingredients you want to have in your CBD dog treats, it is time to visit the other end of the spectrum. We here at HolistaPet strictly adhere to high standards and use only the most desirable ingredients. However, we can’t vouch for other CBD pet companies, many of whom maintain much lower standards. Do not get CBD treats if they contain any of the following elements:
Unfortunately, many mass-produced natural dog treats contain synthetic ingredients. You should avoid any artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Look at the list of ingredients – do you recognize them? Green tea extract, garlic powder, or rosemary extract? Or does it look like a chapter from your old chemistry textbook? Containing vegetable glycerin, guar gum, cane molasses, or mixed tocopherols added? If the label is chock-full of chemical ingredients you can’t even pronounce, we strongly advise you not to buy them, regardless of whether they are tasty treats or not. Look fro ingredients with fresh meat. A senior puppy or not, your puppy loves natural soft bites that make training sessions better and life more full.
We explained that American hemp is the highest quality, but that doesn’t stop many CBD companies from importing hemp crops from other countries, especially Canada, China, and Mexico. The problem with this is that other countries do not place the same regulations on their hemp farms, making the quality very unreliable.
So, why do so many companies use imported hemp to make their CBD pet products? Imported hemp is cheaper, so these brands can cut corners and save a buck saying they’re committed to wellness, soft puppy bites. Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of the customer. Cheaper ingredients are almost always a sign of poor quality, and yet many brands still charge premium prices for these products.
We strongly believe that organic ingredients are the only choice if you care about clean, quality products. Many commercial farms cover their drops with toxic chemical pesticides to keep pests away. These companies will tell you that they clean all the chemicals off the plants once they harvest them, but do you really want to take that risk?
Synthetic pesticides have been linked to numerous health issues. The last thing you want to do is worsen your dog’s condition by letting them eat something toxic. Furthermore, inorganic farming is extremely destructive to the environment. When you choose to purchase organic products, you get to provide your dog with the highest-quality ingredients and show love to the environment at the same time!
