When properly extracted, most CBD oil for animals and humans should be highly similar. Both types should have high purity, come from organic cannabis plants (ideally, hemp), and have zero or micro amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC.
So, as long as you’re using THC-free, hemp-derived, pure isolate CBD oil, it should be okay to give your pup the same CBD oil you’re using.
Really, the question here is about the quality of CBD products and, importantly, any human-specific features in an oil—i.e. the addition of THC, highly fragrant terpenes, and super-strength dosages.
What’s the difference?
THC and dogs
Carrier oils aside, it seems like the main issue with human CBD oil is it’s higher THC content. While not necessarily harmful, dogs and THC do not mix well. If your dog does happen to ingest the psychoactive cannabinoid, expect to see symptoms ranging from confusion, anxiety, and paranoia, to discoordination, drunkenness, and lethargy. More serious reactions have also been recording, including tremors and seizures in rare cases.
Ideally, pets of all kinds should be consuming CBD oil that contains zero THC. However, it’s generally considered acceptable for dogs to ingest oils with THC levels lower than 0.3%.
