From fireworks to thunderstorms, it turns out these stressful moments for pets don’t have to be! These Calm bites are made with all-natural ingredients like organic hemp oil which contains naturally occurring CBD, designed to keep your pet calm and relaxed.
“I discovered Honest Paws after my new puppy had to have a minor procedure. I needed him to rest and go easy for a period of two weeks (which goes against the laws of nature for a puppy!). I was so impressed with how his demeanor was calmed, and he stayed close to me, had lower energy, and acted super chill.” - OOLA Editor, Ellen
This works in the same way the flavored bites do, but its easier to portion out the amount. The taste is dog-approved and loved. The ingredients are simple: dry roasted peanuts, full-spectrum hemp oil, salt, and dextrose, which makes it easy to feel good about what you are giving your dog.
“When we were crate training our lab, we would give him this treat before bedtime and it helped the process go much smoother after we started it,” says OOLA Editor, Allison. "Bonus point for this product, because our dog pack is absolutely peanut butter-obsessed. We cannot wait to use this product over the Fourth of July because our dogs have the hardest time with fireworks and it breaks my heart.”
Easily the most popular product in preparation for the Fourth of July, this calming oil keeps dosing your pooch super simple. The oil form makes it very easy to ensure you are dosing the appropriate amount for their body weight and it comes with specific instructions for anyone new to the CBD world. Another added bonus is that the oil can be applied topically, in addition to giving orally directly or over food.
The oil is fast-acting and you should notice a difference in your pup within 20 minutes to an hour. The effects typically last about eight hours, keeping the firework-anxiety at bay deep into the night.
These soft chews are differentiated from the products above because they contain Tryptophan, in addition to the CBD. You may recognize this term from your Thanksgiving dinners, because it is a naturally-occurring amino acid found in turkey and usually blamed for the post-dinner naps. Tryptophan is an amino acid that turns into niacin when consumed, and helps stimulate the growth of melatonin and serotonin, both essential calming neurotransmitters.
Worried this may make your dog too drowsy? That's where the other ingredient comes in: L-Theanine. This amino acid occurs naturally in tea leaves, and research shows it helps promote relaxation without the drowsy side-effect. Science has proven this helps reduce the heart rate, leading to less anxiety and stress. Hello -- can the humans get some too?!
Your pup will love these soft tasty treats and should be noticeably more relaxed within the hour with the fast-acting ingredients.
You may be asking yourself if CBD is safe for dogs. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so it helps to know the facts before administering. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in cannabis and hemp. CBD does not contain delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. In fact, most CBD products are derived from hemp and not from marijuana.
Honest Paws products are made from hemp, not marijuana. The brand also makes products beyond the Calm line, like their Wellness and Mobility products, which promote relief from joint stiffness, and are specifically formulated to boost mobility and relieve discomfort. They haven't forgotten about the rest of your pets either! Explore the site for calming, mobility-enhancing, and healthy skin support products for cats and horses as well.
Each product comes with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee if you aren't completely satisfied with the results. However, read the reviews for yourself. This company is creating happy pet parents (and pets, of course!) all over the world.
