There are so many ways that CBD can be great for your dog’s (and your other pet’s health). CBDs are especially helpful with really rambunctious or high-anxiety canines. To help you navigate this journey, we’ve compiled a list of some of the leading treats on the market as well as shown you how you can make custom CBD dog treats using the LĒVO machine.
Before you share your love for your favorite plant’s properties with your beloved animals, there are some things you should know.
*Note: Please speak with your veterinarian before giving your dogs any treats. There might be a conflict with existing medications. Also, your vet may have some other valuable insights to share with you when it comes to any number of things, including milligram dosing, which has a lot to do with the size of your canine(s).
*Important: Please don’t give your dog your own edibles! It’s important to know that sharing your infused edibles with your dog could make them very sick. Not just from the THC, but also possibly from the carrier oil you’ve chosen to infuse your edibles with.
Human edibles usually contain way too much THC (the compound that gives activated cannabis its psychoactive effects) and could cause a whole number of problems for your family’s best friend. These effects could be but are not limited to; raised/lowered heart rates, incontinence, tremors, anxiety, and vomiting.
With this said, we know that most dogs do respond well to hemp CBD and that they can be helpful for everything from separation anxiety, to arthritis- and of course, we want to be their best friends too.

One of the best things about this recipe is that it uses only a tablespoon of CBD-infused coconut oil – which is generally as good for humans as it is for dogs.

The LĒVO II allows you to infuse up to 19 oz(539g) of oil, while having complete control over your desired potency.

Cannabutter Digest’s All-Natural CBD Infused Dog Treats:
- 1 Cup of gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats gluten is not good for your dogs' tummy
- 1 ripened banana
- 2 tbsp all-natural or organic peanut butter
- 2 tbsp of organic honey
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp CBD infused coconut oil
- Begin by mashing the mixture all together
- Incorporate the organic honey. This is what will help the treats harden (similar to in a granola bar)
- Sprinkle in some chia seeds to help them stick together and give the treat a healthful texture
- Add in your CBD infused coconut oil
- Continue to mash all ingredients really well together – you may need to use your hands to get in there and make a completely thorough mixture.
- If the mixture seems just a bit too wet, you may just need to add a bit more oats.
- When you’re satisfied with the mix, roll them up into approximately 1” balls (smaller, if you’ve got a little pooch), and place them on a wax paper sheet, or plate to let them air and harden, or in the freezer if your dog can reach your kitchen counter.
- Then, if you like, you could move them into a plastic, lidded container to freeze and store for the long term.
- Once frozen, these can be a super-cool, relaxing treat on a hot afternoon after a visit to your local dog park. Now that’s a good day for a dog!
