CBD Oil for Pets & More
As pet owners, we always want the best for our furry friends. That is why our collection of CBD for pets offers high-quality products made with the same care and attention to detail as our human CBD products. Specifically made for our pups, cats, and other four-legged members of our family, Naternal CBD pet products are available in various strengths so that you can choose the best CBD oil to help your fur baby live a healthier lifestyle without discomfort.
What is CBD for pets?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. In addition to CBD, other cannabinoids and extracts found in organic hemp can include cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and more. While always found in the cannabis plant, these cannabinoids are also produced naturally in the body as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is true for the human body, as well as for your dogs, cats, and other pets. Your pet's ECS behaves similarly to the ECS in humans, although the CB1 receptors in dogs are known to produce a state known as "static ataxia" (a lack of coordination) when they're exposed to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Fortunately for dog owners, dog CBD (as well as other CBD pet products) doesn't contain active amounts of THC, so you won't have to worry about negative effects on their endocannabinoid receptors. It's also important to note that pet chews and other CBD products do not produce the psychoactive effects or "high" typically associated with the marijuana plant since CBD lacks psychoactive properties.
CBD for pets provides owners with a natural way to promote wellness in their dogs, cats, and other types of furry friends. CBD oil for pets offers a wide range of potential benefits that can bring peace of mind to both owners and pets. While the effects of CBD are anecdotal, many humans report that it provides relief for joint pain or feelings of anxiousness, and brings other positive effects, and pet CBD is meant to mimic this performance. The ECS is believed to play an important role in maintaining homeostasis and keeping the immune system functioning properly by regulating things like appetite, mood, memory, and sleep. Early research also suggests that CBD may have natural anti-inflammatory properties, but more lab results will be needed to definitively prove this.
Since the Farm Bill of 2018 made industrial hemp products legal at the federal level, you've likely noticed the significant increase in popularity for CBD products like oils, tinctures, capsules, edibles, and more. Our pet products are meant to produce similar positive effects as CBD anecdotally does in humans, and the effective legality of these products across the United States makes them easy to deliver. Still, you may want to check with your own state laws and local legislation to be completely safe.
Why choose Naternal CBD for pets?
Naternal is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Root Bioscience, Inc. Root Bioscience is a materials science company, specializing in cannabis products. It monitors Naternal’s entire supply chain from soil to oil, as well as our ingredient profile, and manufactures Naternal products in a modern GMP-compliant facility in North Carolina’s world-renowned Research Triangle Park, rather than relying on third-party labs. We constantly look for ways that we can do things differently and better compared to other providers in the CBD industry, and we source our hemp from local organic farms. Our production process for each batch of our organic CBD is meticulous from hemp source to extraction, and our testing is rigorous to ensure the CBD products you get are exactly what we say they will be with no GMOs, pesticides, harmful substances, or artificial flavors, and with minimal potential side effects.
Our CBD for pets is held to the same standards used for other products in the pet health and wellness industries to ensure your dog's health or that of any other pet. All our hemp products for pets are sourced from natural ingredients and use rigorous testing to ensure quality and safety. You can even access lab reports and a certificate of analysis (COA) on any product we sell to verify this, so you know you're making a good choice.
We created Naternal because we felt that other CBD products lacked the high quality and transparency we normally expect from health and wellness products in the U.S. All of our pet CBD oil, pet treats, and other pet CBD products are created using ingredients and formulations that we would be proud for our own pets and other family members to use. We produce base formulations that we believe would be excellent to use on their own, even without the use of CBD.
Is CBD safe for my pets?
Your pets are part of the family: we get it. That’s why we offer CBD products specially made for our furry (and feathered) friends with exceptional quality control and the highest quality ingredients. Our pet formulations blend CBD with other naturally occurring cannabinoids and hempseed oil to help pets get more out of every day. While we are 100 percent confident about the quality and safety of our products, we understand that every pet has different needs, so we recommend consulting with a veterinarian before starting a CBD regimen.
While other manufacturers may use empty carrier oil or ingredients without clear benefits, we are dedicated to using only the best natural ingredients in our formulations without the need for gluten, pesticides, preservatives, heavy metals, or other products that you wouldn't trust to feed your pet. Here is a list of the ingredients that we're proud to use in the bases of our products. We make sure that everything we use is easy to understand and pronounce.

If you have more questions about our active ingredients, natural CBD oil, CBD tinctures, or CBD treats and what they can do for pet lovers, please contact us directly through our website. Every day, we connect with people. Some have known the power of CBD oils for years, and others are just getting started, but together, we are building a thriving community of wellness seekers and pet parents. Visit us, look around at our products and, most importantly, be well.
Why is Naternal CBD oil for pets full-spectrum?
Full-spectrum CBD formulas contain a high concentration of CBD combined with other hemp extracts, terpenes, hemp oil, flavonoids, and hemp compounds known as cannabinoids. These hemp compounds have been shown to enhance the overall effects of CBD to deliver more potent effects than CBD alone, a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. The main difference between full-spectrum oils and broad-spectrum CBD is that broad-spectrum products have all THC removed for a higher level of CBD purity.
While products may not be entirely THC-free, the bottom line is the trace amounts of THC under 0.3 percent adhere to all laws and regulations and will not be detrimental to the health of your pet.

Even though we’d love to tell you more specifically about exactly how CBD animal products could support your pet’s mental and physical wellness, we must remain silent when it comes to making any definitive medical claims about the specific health benefits or efficacy of our products. This is because we adhere to the rules set out by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for your protection regarding all supplements.
Currently, the only medication using CBD to receive FDA approval is Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizures and epilepsy associated with certain medical disorders in humans like Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravet syndrome. Until more conclusive data surfaces, which is unlikely to happen until the legal limit on research and clinical trials is lifted, most evidence regarding pet CBD tinctures will be anecdotal.
Since CBD supplements are currently not regulated by the FDA, we are not in a position to make any guarantees regarding the potential benefits of CBD for pets or the efficacy of these products for dulling pain sensations or providing anti-inflammatory effects. This means that researching the potential benefits of CBD for pets falls to you.
Luckily, there are numerous CBD studies and examples of anecdotal evidence explaining how CBD for pets can help your dogs and cats. Similar to the anecdotal evidence for humans, CBD brands for pets have been reported to help with inflammation and chronic pain, ease feelings of anxiousness caused by loud noises like fireworks and thunderstorms, reduce restlessness, ease separation anxiety, and even help with the cognitive function of older pets. We encourage you to explore the internet or consult your vet to find exactly how high-quality, rigorously tested CBD products can be helpful for your pets. We will be following along, but we can’t participate further in this part of the conversation—for now. We can tell you that, naturally, our pet products were not designed for human use.
What is the right CBD oil dosage for pets?
As a starting point for best results, we recommend 4 milligrams of CBD for every 10 lbs of your pet's body weight. We've created this dosing chart to help you find the right amount of CBD based on your pet's pounds of body weight. When in doubt about how much CBD to use, we recommend starting with a low dose and working your way up.
We understand that all pets are different, and your pet's health is our top priority. Therefore, this chart is simply a guideline that can help you find the right CBD dosage for your pet. Dog CBD oil and tinctures can be administered with a dropper. If you have any questions regarding dosing or potency, or you need medical advice, please consult your veterinarian.
**Due to current regulations, our products cannot be evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any serious medical condition, ailments, or disease like arthritis. Side effects of CBD may include dry mouth, reduced appetite, diarrhea, drowsiness, and lethargy.
