2019 will forever be remembered as the year CBD companies started popping up like weeds.
After the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, a lot of new cannabis startups have come to try their hand at the CBD industry. And although many of them have some neat products in an array of delivery methods, the market has become oversaturated with those who claim they have a mural cure for our furry best friends.
Considering that most owners put their dogs first, it’s important that what they ingest is good, if not better than what we do. And when it comes to CBD, giving your dog a new substance can be a scary thought. There are quite a few CBD products for dogs on the market. Here’s a list to kick off your research:
The creme de la creme, Verma Farms has become a premier choice for pet owners because of their unrelenting obsession with quality ingredients without sacrificing taste. Owners report using Verma Farm’s dog treats for their dog’s pain relief, anxiety, and arthritis like symptoms. Another popular use case was for puppies who need help getting acclimated to their new home as well as being able to relax in the cage. On top of investing heavily into the quality and deliciousness of their treats, Verma Farms also has pledged to donate a treat to an animal shelter for each product sold sitewide. That’s a mission every pet owner can get behind.
One thing our participants noted about Balance’s dog options is having Salmon or Cod Liver Oil (which helps keep your dog’s fur shiny and healthy) CBD drops, which adds a natural flavoring they’re familiar with. As a vegan, cruelty-free product, you can have peace of mind knowing you’re giving your pet the best.
Koi CBD has absolutely taken the hemp industry by storm. As one of the biggest names out, their lineup of CBD includes a simple treat or spray, but both were remarked to be incredibly receptive by our furry friends. Plus, they’ve been perfecting their model for nearly half a decade now, giving them a tried-and-true appeal over the other brands.
With the appeal of a clean and contemporary brand, Mineral is another choice that was popular to use amongst dogs as much as their owners. A full-spectrum oil, Mineral’s biggest focus is on the plants they cultivate in their homegrown operation in Colorado. Check them out if you’re looking for a choice that delivers on being ‘craft CBD’.
One of the best parts about Lazarus Naturals is simply how diverse their lineup is for CBD. Not only do they cover a pet section, but they have different varieties for certain ailments dog owners might endure. With a lower price-point than a lot of their competition, this is an overall excellent choice from the vegan, all-natural selections made with coconut oil.
As a company with a simple, one product lineup, Juna tries to make that one product really, really good. The result? Not only are they loved by CBD owners as one of the fastest-growing brands, but also were remarked by dog owners as a top choice as well. With all-natural, organic ingredients, they’ve stripped down the science into an easy to use drops for anyone in need.
With a lineup specifically made for pets, Irie also sells a blend that’s perfect for dogs. One thing that sticks out about their oil is that it contains the superfood Astaxanthin, which provides vitamins A and D, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. A full-spectrum oil, the price point is also one of the most competitive on the market.
As a CBD brand specifically designed for pets, Honest Paws offers an array of products that the competition can’t even come close to.

Pet Releaf’s lineup for dog CBD is absolutely one of the most complete on this list. It’s clear they’ve not only have thought through all the different reasons why dogs would take CBD but the specific methods that’ll make it easier for them to ingest it. A wise choice overall, and one with nothing but upside.
As a CBD company created by veterinarians, Vet CBD is a great choice for straight-up, no-frills CBD with pets in mind. By utilizing a one product lineup, their focus was on making the best product for our furry friends possible; and as noted in a study presented by Leafly on dogs using CBD, participants saw an 80 percent reduction in pain as well as increased mobility. Yes, it’s good to listen to the professionals, which is why Vet CBD is a top-tier selection.
A broad-spectrum oil, Pure Spectrum offers a lineup of full strength, straight-up oils. Coming in a variety of sizes, this was a popular choice amongst CBD purists.

Green Garden Gold
Taking pride in its lineup of treats, Green Garden Gold has an excellent selection for your dog’s CBD. Perhaps one of the most interesting notes about their offering is the difference between their formula specifically for joint pain and traditional oil, as that’s something not everyone currently includes.

Another smart choice for pet oil, Revival’s Paws series offers four doses (25mg, 45mg, 100mg, and 200mg), which makes it seamless to ease our pets into taking CBD. With pricing that’s some of the cheapest on the market, Revival can be a no-brainer.
Infamously known for being Dan Bilzerian’s company, Ignite’s CBD drops are some of the highest quality on the market. We found their unflavored version was particularly noted the most popular amongst pet owners; however, with the marketing potential that the ‘King of Instagram’ currently holds, don’t be surprised if they expand their offerings to include more pet-centric products soon.
Releasing a line specifically for pets soon, Green Roads current lineup of oils still does our furry friends justice.
