The wonderful feature of CBD oil and its various product counterparts is the fact that it is so versatile when it comes to adding it to other ingredients and recipes, and that there is something for everyone including the animal kingdom.
For a good friend of mine, who recently got a new puppy as a birthday gift, CBD became a staple in her home-cooking. Whether she was adding it to the family’s dinner for the evening or stirring it into the pups’ meals it changed the quality of life everyone was living for the better.
She had heard and read numerous articles of other pet owners raving about how their animals had benefitted from having CBD infused into the diets and after hours of extensive research, she decided to give it a go on a trial basis.
Initially, she intended to simply get her pup to open its mouth so she could pop a CBD pill in, but after discussing with her husband and realizing this is easier said than done, they opted for the CBD infused oil.
They already enjoyed cooking and experimenting with new recipes, and with the newfound interest, she began her doggy biscuit extravaganza, much to her dogs’ delight as you can imagine.
She would infuse the oil into the mixture before baking, or for an added kick would soak a few droplets onto the ready biscuits as they were cooling, and the doggy was none the wiser, yet receiving all the health benefits CBD brought to the table.

The plus side.
After months of use and adding CBD into their pets’ meals and diet in as many creative ways as possible, she could confidently say she could see the difference in her dog compared to say that of her neighbors.
She had mentioned to them what she had discovered and was trialing but, unfortunately, like many people who have yet to learn the more in-depth explanation and history of the CBD flower and plant, the moment they heard it came from the marijuana family it was a firm ‘no.’
Nevertheless, she let them be with their opinions and noses turned up and carried on with her routine. When it came to the summer months and everyone was out running and exercising with their dogs she was walking loud and proud. Her dog had a coat that was fit for a royal, he looked healthy and young and energetic as the day he arrived, and the village locals began to notice.
A few ‘brave’ community members came up to her on the side hoping nobody would see them talking to ‘the woman who gives her dog cannabis,’ and after a brief explanation and an invite to come around for a cup of tea, a slice of cake, and a relaxing chat, they went on their way.
She felt proud to do her part in spreading the news about a product that was undoubtedly working. She initially found her preferences and varieties when browsing the Holistapet product supplies website and catalog and after going through almost the entire range she narrowed it down to her favorites and stocked the pantry.
Her family, animals included, were living the quality of life they had always wanted and deserved, and all was possible with an open mind and taking the time to look into the humble plant that has become a household name.
The final thoughts.
CBD comes from a long and interesting history, dating back to way before we even realized yet essentially ‘rediscovered’ in recent years and advanced with the availability of technology we know today.
It didn’t matter if you were a royal queen needing the plant to help alleviate excruciating menstrual cramps and having it specifically crushed, ground, and combined with topical lotion for ease of use.
Or an Asian emperor who would order his staff to crush the flowers and leaves and infuse them into his daily pots of tea to help reduce the significant amount of inflammation in his joints and pains from gout. CBD has changed the lives of people the world over and for decades upon decades, who knew a simple flower could be so impactful?
An interesting article in this link shows us just how powerful an herb or plant can be in affecting peoples’ lives. Just the other day I read a blog about an elderly woman who had a Labrador for the longest time she could remember and he was all she had left as companionship since her husband passed away, but recently she noticed he wasn’t the same.
Her carer, a young girl open to new world possibilities, mentioned CBD to her and the old lady instantly said yes. If it meant she had a little while longer with her furry friend and that his last years were pain-free what was stopping her and why hadn’t she known about it before.
She thanked the girl several weeks later stating she could see the spark back in his eyes and the joy they brought each other on their daily strolls and life in general, CBD was a blessing she would cherish till her last days.
