How To Make CBD Dog Treats

If you have pets and are also interested in CBD, there’s a chance you’ve been researching CBD pet treats. This guide will tell you how to make your own CBD pet treats at home.

The Answer:

Ever wanted to try making your own CBD dog treats at home? Below are a few of the ways listed from easiest to hardest for your convenience.

Note: It may be best to buy pre-made CBD dog treats from a reputable company, as these companies make sure each treat contains a specific amount of CBD. You should never give CBD products to your dog that are not derived from industrial hemp, and always consult with your vet before giving your dog a new supplement.

We suggest giving your dog the CBD pet oil directly for a while to determine how they handle specific quantities of CBD. Start with the lowest recommended dose and work your way up from there. Once you find the right amount of CBD per dose for your dog, you will know exactly how many drops of oil, or how many mg of CBD to put in each treat when you make them yourself.

You do not need to worry about using more CBD however, as it is generally well tolerated by humans and dogs alike and there are no reported cases of overdose from CBD. Side effects are rare and generally mild and include common symptoms like drowsiness or nausea and/or changes in appetite.

If your dog starts having any of these symptoms after ingesting CBD, stop giving it to them and they should return to normal. Be sure to take your dog to the vet if you are concerned about their health for any reason.

HOW TO MAKE CBD Dog Treats Guide

Add CBD Oil to Ready-made Dog Treats:

This is by far the simplest way to make your own CBD dog treats at home. Simply put a few drops of CBD oil on your dog’s favorite treat. The trick is to get the oil to soak in so it might be best to use a treat that is capable of absorbing the oil. Porous dog treats are best for this, they are the type that look granular or have little holes in them.

Add CBD Oil to Frozen Dog Treats:

Another simple way to make CBD dog treats is adding CBD to frozen treats. Most frozen dog treats are prepared in batches so some math is required. You should multiply the number of treats the recipe will make by the number of CBD oil drops your pet needs and add that to the recipe. You can make a frozen dog treat mix of your choice and place individual portions in an ice cube tray, add the appropriate amount of oil to each “cube” and then mix well. Consider purchasing a dog paw shaped ice cube tray for extra style.

Homemade No-Bake CBD Dog Treats:

If you don’t want to put CBD oil on a premade treat, or a frozen treat, you can still make no-bake dog treats. You’ll want to pick a CBD dog treat recipe that calls for some kind of oil so you can replace all or part of what the recipe calls for with CBD oil. It may be best to look for recipes with coconut oil as this bonds extremely well with CBD oil and is generally safe for dogs to eat. Avoid excessive amounts of oil as this can upset your dogs stomach, additionally some dogs can be allergic to coconut oil. 

No-bake dog treats are softer than baked dog treats so, while these are a great option, they can crumble easily.

Baked Homemade Dog Treats:

Baking CBD treats for your dog is basically the same process as how to make CBD edibles. If you have experience doing this already, it will probably help you.

Keep in mind that the lower the temperature when baking, the less the chances are that any of the CBD will evaporate. Generally, CBD is completely degraded at temperatures in excess of 325 degrees F so avoid baking at high heat.

The general consensus is that the baking temperature should not exceed 350 degrees. You can either choose recipes that don’t require baking at higher temperatures or lower the recommended baking temperature and just extend the baking time accordingly.

There is some risk involved that each treat will not contain the amount of CBD you intended, but this should not matter much as each treat will certainly contain some CBD.

What Is CBD Oil For Dogs?

What Is CBD Oil For Dogs?

Here we cover all things CBD for pets. Learn what CBD does for pets, why you may consider supplementation, and potential benefits.

The Answer:

CBD oil for pets generally isn’t that different from regular CBD oil meant for human consumption. The main difference is that sometimes the CBD oil is infused with pet food or treats, and the product has been manufactured to ensure all the ingredients are safe for pets. Certain CBD oil brands for humans might contain extra ingredients that aren’t meant for pet consumption so it’s a good idea to check ingredient labels and lab test reports to verify what’s in your CBD oil before giving it to your pets. 


As our pets increase in age, or go through changes in weight, lifestyle, or diet they can begin to experience health problems. When these problems do occur, they can take various forms. As bad as that is alone, these problems can be made even worse by high veterinary costs associated with treating them.


What can seem like a small problem at first, can sometimes quickly snowball into a major financial burden as prices for treatment, medications, and surgery and follow up visits quickly add up.

As pet owners, it’s hard to be forced to make life changing decisions for our pets because of financial restrictions, but how can we avoid what seems like an inevitability?

While it’s impossible to know exactly what the future holds, we can take preventative measures to care for our pets today in hopes to avoid potential problems later. One way we can do this is by ensuring our pets are getting enough nutrition by adding supplements like CBD to their diet.

More info about cbd oil for pets

After all, we take supplements ourselves when we want to stay healthy, so why not do the same for our pets? Scientific studies show that cannabidiol oil not only has wondrous potential for human beings, but also for our pets. In fact, did you know that virtually all animals have an endocannabinoid system? It’s hard to believe, but it’s true, even those squishy invertebrates have one. This means that their bodies have a system specifically designed to interact with cannabinoids like CBD just like ours.

Cannabidiol Life CBD oil for dogs & cats is produced by extracting CBD from hemp plants. It can be added to food, or applied to treats. In fact, Cannabidiol life also offers dog treats already infused with CBD for your convenience. One should keep in mind that just like humans, every animal can react differently. That’s why pet owners should consult with their veterinarian before giving CBD to their pet. If they approve it’s also important to know that the common dosing rule for cats and dogs is 1-5 milligrams for every 10 pounds of body weight.

Veterinarians also warn against mixing CBD with other prescription medications your pet might be using, since CBD can interact with other substances in the body, especially medicines that are metabolized in the liver. Finally, when purchasing CBD supplements for your pet, make sure to choose a high quality organic oil, from a company that can demonstrate proper certificates of authenticity and verify their ingredients in third party lab tests.

CBD is known to promote a relaxed state that reduces sensitivity to external stressors. Many people have seen a noticeable difference in their pet’s behavior while under the effects of CBD in circumstances that would normally stress them out like during a thunderstorm or when fireworks are going off, for instance.

Giving CBD to your pets is easy. Giving them a few drops of CBD in their food a breeze. Alternatively, you can buy dog treats with CBD baked right in. Treats allow for slower digestion and absorption, and may help with the overall health and wellness of your pet by extending the amount of time they are affected by the cannabinoid.

We hope you found this information helpful and that your fuzzy friends live long, happy and healthy lives
