Did you know January is National CBD Month?
Cannabidiol commonly known as CBD is an active ingredient in cannabis that is derived from the hemp plant. While CBD is most popularly known for its health benefits with humans, in recent years, research has shown that CBD can positively affect our furry friends!
Some potential benefits include:
- Anxiety and Stress Relief
Some dogs can be more affected by stress and anxiety than others. Separation, unexpected loud noises, and new experiences can trigger this. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, providing a natural way to calm anxious dogs and alleviate extra stress.
- Pain Management and Supporting Joint Health
Some dogs who suffer from chronic pain, joint issues, inflammation, and mobility issues can find some relief when using CBD. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that can aid pain management by reducing inflammation and promoting joint health.
- Seizure Management
Some studies and owner experiences suggest that CBD may have anticonvulsant properties, potentially helping to reduce the frequency and severity of seizures in dogs.
- Soothe Nausea and Stimulate Appetite
CBD could also promote a healthy appetite and support an overall balanced digestive system for dogs who are struggling to eat or have poor digestion.
As research on CBD for dogs progresses, it offers a promising avenue for enhancing the overall well-being of our canine companions.

Colorado Hemp Honey Chill Sticks
These honey sticks are safe for humans and canines alike! The Colorado Hemp Honey sticks contain the basic ingredients of raw wildflower honey and 5 mg of CBD naturally occurring in 15mg of full-spectrum hemp extract per stick.
These have personally worked wonders with my dog Moose (pictured above) after an attempted break-in at our home. He was scared to even go near the door and couldn’t seem to settle down as he paced around, staring at the door. These sticks took the edge off and aided him through his fear as we noticed him finally start to relax more. I still use them whenever we are expecting a stressful situation like fireworks or if we are having company over.
