What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. CBD is a natural compound found in the cannabis family of plants. CBD extracted from industrial hemp should not be confused from CBD extraction made from the marijuana plant. When extracted from the industrial hemp plant, the THC levels are less than .3% THC. Chill Paws products are extracted from industrial hemp. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects and will not produce a "high."
How does CBD work for my pet?
Cannabinoids (naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, CBD included) interact with the pet's endocannabinoid receptors which are located in the central and peripheral nervous system. Your pet's endocannabinoid receptors are responsible for keeping their body in a normal and balanced state.
Does your product contain THC?
All of our product are Full Spectrum CBD, which means they contain all the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Our products are hemp derived and contain less than .3% THC.
Will CBD get my pets "high"?
No! Unlike THC, CBD does not have psychoactive effects and will not get your pets "high."
How often should I give product to my pet?
We recommend once to twice a day. Although every pet responds differently. Start with one or two doses daily and increase as needed. The effect of each dose generally last 4-6 hours.
What if my pet doesn’t let me pour the oil directly into their mouth?
You can add our CBD oil to their treat or food as well. The effects may take a few minutes longer.
Should I order the 250mg or the 500mg for my dog?
Our 250mg was formulated with smaller dogs in mind (under 25lbs). For mid-sized to larger dogs, our 500mg option is a better fit.
What ingredients are used in Chill Paws tinctures?
We try to keep things simple. The ingredients in our tinctures are Full Spectrum CBD and MCT Oil.
How do I use the tinctures?
We recommend 3 different ways to use our tinctures:
1. You can apply the oil from the dropper directly into your pet's mouth (20 minutes - 60 minutes).
2. You can apply the oil to a treat. The effects will take a little longer when applied to a treat (45 minutes - 90 minutes).
3. You can apply the oil to your pet's food. It will also take the same amount of time to take effect as the treat (45 minutes - 90 minutes).
Is the milligram amount of CBD listed on the bottle, per serving, or the whole bottle?
The amount of CBD milligrams listed on our packaging and bottle is per bottle. For example, our 250mg (30ml) bottle contains 16.67mg per full dropper. Our 500mg (30ml) option contains 16.67mg per full dropper.
How long will a Chill Paws tincture last me?
It depends on how often you use the tincture and the amount you use per serving. Typically our 30ml (250mg) option should last 30-60 servings. Our 30ml (500mg option) should last 30-60 servings.
What is the proper dosage for the product?
Each pet responds slightly differently to CBD. If your pet has never tried CBD, we recommend starting with half of a dropper and working your way up. Monitor how your pet responds. Gradually increase the dosage until you find the best dosage for your pet. For example, some of our customers have found that 2-3 droppers work best for their pet, whereas others can use less to receive the desired effect.
But wait how do I know If I am getting high-quality CBD?!
Glad you ask! We 3rd party lab tests each of our batches to insure that you are getting the highest quality pet CBD.
If I'm giving my pet other medications, can I still use CBD?
We recommend consulting with your vet before taking CBD with other medications. There may be some medications that do not mix well with CBD.
Do I need a prescription from the vet to use CBD?
No! You can purchase directly from our online store. No prescription is needed.
