CBD oil is a concentrated tincture full of cannabinoids (if it is full or broad-spectrum) or just cannabidiol (if isolated). For dogs, there are variations of this product that are slightly different from those for human use. First, dogs don't need the same doses of cannabidiol as humans. Secondly, pups can be quite picky and stubborn when it comes to taking medications and supplements. They find the taste of pure hemp oil not so delicious.

For your furry buddy to get its daily dose of cannabidiol, you need to be quite resourceful. Dogs have a pronounced sense of smell, so you must mask the aroma of cannabidiol tincture with a more intense taste. The advice is to try to combine it with your pet's favorite snacks or treats, whether they are store-bought or home-made.

Pouring Over

Every dog has a favorite treat or snack. What your pup finds delicious may be yucky to you. But it's these odd and intense aromas that can be your ticket to CBD administration to a stubborn pet.

If your dog prefers hard cookies or kibbles, and already has a favorite brand and type, use them to sneak cannabidiol. Porous treats full of holes are the best choice because they will absorb liquid quickly.

Before you give a snack to your pet, pour a few drops of CBD over the yummy bit. Leave it ​​a minute or two. You should not give the dog to sniff or lick a treat. Put it directly into their mouths. So most likely, they will not even feel the oily and a bit bitter aroma of CBD.

For dogs that prefer soft, chewy bites, pouring CBD over them is not a good idea. The oil can slip off of them. So, if you give them 'ordinary' treats (not already CBD-infused), try to inject a smaller dose of CBD into them. Always look for chews with intense, meaty aromas, which will hide cannabidiol taste.

Check out this article to find out which tastes dogs prefer.

Raw Treats

Some dogs are crazy about things like peanut butter, ice cream, or frozen yogurt. Still, you shouldn't give too many of these products to them due to the large amounts of salt, sugar, and artificial ingredients. But a few spoons of these delicacies can be an excellent substitute for commercial doggy snacks.

The great thing about CBD is that it is fat-soluble. That means it mixes well with oily and fatty ingredients, like peanut or almond butter. Stir one tablespoon of these ingredients with a dose of CBD oil for your pet (or you can mix these two types of butter), and let your pup lick the spoon.

Frozen Bites

You can make delicious frozen treats for your puppy if you add ingredients like pumpkin or banana into butter or yogurt. These are great to consume during hot days. You can play with aromas; just make sure these are the things your dog loves.

If you are not sure that you will get portions with the same dose of cannabidiol by mixing all-together, you can try adding CBD oil later. After dividing the mixture into the mold or ice-cube tray, use a syringe and infuse a dose of CBD oil into each piece.

CBD oil tolerates freezing well, so it won't lose its properties. It also won't spoil or change the taste of these frozen bites. Your pet is free to enjoy them for a few days.

Bake Homemade Treats

Although it has the same structure as table oils, CBD oil is not intended for food preparation. That is, it is not intended for baking, frying, or any exposure to high temperatures. But if you use it carefully and follow the instructions for preparing baked CBD treats for your pup, you can make it a real feast for your pups' palate.

Cannabidiol is sensitive to heat and intense light. Excessive exposure to these conditions affects the changes in the molecules of this compound, due to which it loses its healing properties. Also, frying or baking on high heats changes CBD oil's taste, which can completely spoil the taste of the dish.

If your dog is a fan of biscuits or biscuits, try to make them with ready-made foods, that is, with ingredients that need minimal heat treatment. These treats are made in batches, so you have to calculate how many drops of cannabidiol you need. Increase the dose if you make these treats for several days.

Use thicker ingredients like yogurt or butter in which you will mix CBD oil. Only after you have mixed it well, you can add other solid and liquid ingredients. This way, you'll ensure that each cookie has about the same dose of cannabidiol in it.

Conclusion

Injecting CBD oil into your dog's mouth is the best way to get the best out of this product. Also, this method of application has the fastest effect. But, if your dog doesn't want a dropper inside the mouth, don't insist. Sneaking CBD into their favorite snacks or making home-made treats are a good alternative.
