CBD for pets report

You’re far more likely to find a high-quality CBD product today than several years ago. But there’s still room to improve. One lingering problem is that many products don’t contain the correct amount of CBD.

We discovered as much by sending dozens of CBD products for independent testing at Canalysis Laboratories, a Las Vegas-based cannabis testing lab. So far, we’ve done in-depth investigations of CBD oils, drinks, edibles, and topicals.

In this report, we’re going to look at CBD pet products, a category that’s been steadily growing in popularity. We sent 55 pet products to be independently tested for their cannabinoid content. Here’s what we found.

Note: We’ve also reported on CBD prices to help you get a good deal and save money.

Summary

In total, only 24 of the 55 products we tested (44%) contained the advertised amount of CBD. The rest were off by anywhere from 10.2% to 98.5% from the label.

That’s probably because pet products include multiple product categories. They also contain smaller amounts of CBD, making it more difficult to maintain consistency.

Here’s a look at the key findings:

  • 56% (31) of the tested products had CBD levels that differ from the label by more than the acceptable 10% variance.
  • Most of the products (58%) had more CBD than advertised
  • Pet edibles and topicals are usually less accurate than oils and tinctures.
  • Despite scoring well for tinctures, many companies received a poor score for their edible pet products
  • 22 of the tested products had no THC, despite companies claiming they contained full-spectrum CBD
  • 24 (44%) of the tested products had CBD levels within 10% of the label, which is required for an A rating

Accuracy Rating

We measured the accuracy of CBD pet products by comparing how much CBD they should have to the amount shown on the third-party lab test reports.

While some variation is expected from a natural product like hemp-derived CBD, it should still be within reasonable levels. Industry experts recommend that cannabis products should contain cannabinoid levels that are within 10% of the advertised amount.

In other words, CBD products should contain anywhere from 90% to 110% of the amount stated on the label to be considered accurate.

Using this 10% cutoff, we assigned CBD pet products one of four ratings to represent their accuracy:

  1. A (Excellent): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 10% of what was stated on the label.
  2. B (Decent): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 20% of the label.
  3. C (Poor): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 30% of the label.
  4. F (Fail): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that differed from the label by more than 30%.

Third-Party Testing Explained

Third-party tests are done by an independent lab to confirm the safety and potency of a CBD product.

These tests are important when shopping for CBD because some products have incorrect CBD levels or carry contaminants.

The most important third-party test is called a cannabinoid profile or potency test. It measures the amount of CBD and other cannabinoids in a product.

This is the test we order for our independent reports. Verifying the potency of a CBD product is important for several reasons:

  • You want to know you’re getting exactly what you paid for
  • A product with less CBD than claimed will be less effective
  • A product with more CBD than claimed will make it harder to figure out your dosage

Certificate of Analysis (CoA)

We bought 55 CBD pet products and sent them to the cannabis testing lab Canalysis, located in Las Vegas. The lab technicians tested the products and recorded the results in documents called certificates of analysis (CoAs).

Next, we compared the amount of CBD shown on the CoAs to the advertised CBD content of each product. We also looked at what other cannabinoids were detected by the tests.

To give you an example, if a company sold a pet CBD oil that should contain 300 mg of CBD but the tests only showed 200 mg, that means it contained 33% less CBD than claimed.

This poor result would receive our F rating since you’d be getting much less CBD than you paid for.

How to Read CoAs

Most CBD companies publish third-party CoAs directly on their website. This way, it’s easy for you to confirm that a CBD product is safe, reliable, and effective before buying it.

Reading a CoA may seem difficult because of the scientific jargon and abbreviations, but it’s not that complicated. The main thing to look for is the section called “cannabinoids,” “cannabinoid profile,” “potency,” or something similar.

Here, you’ll see columns and graphs with names of cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, and others, and their amounts in percentages or milligrams (mg) per milliliter (ml), gram, serving, unit, or the whole container.

Summary Table

Below is the summary of the test results for the 55 pet products we sent to Canalysis. Most of these were CBD oils but there were also many edibles and some topical products.

Note that products with a minus sign under the variance column contained less CBD than stated on the label, while others had more.

Conclusion

Most of the products we sent for testing (56%) had inaccurate CBD levels. Despite this, the most common rating was an A, awarded to products that contained within 10% of the labeled CBD amount.

Out of 55 tested products, 24 (44%) got an A, 12 (22%) got a B, 4 (7%) got a C, and 15 (27%) received the worst F rating.

Compared to our previous reports, these findings suggest that CBD pet products are more accurate than CBD edibles, topicals, and drinks, but not as accurate as regular CBD oil tinctures.

We weren’t too surprised by these results because pet products include multiple categories, including CBD oils, edibles, and topicals.

Whereas pet CBD oils performed quite well, edibles and topicals had relatively poor results and dragged down the overall accuracy of CBD pet products.

For example, many companies got an A for their pet CBD oil but scored a C or an F for their edible and topical products.

That’s to be expected as edibles and topicals are more difficult to formulate. They also use smaller amounts of CBD, which means that being off by even a few milligrams can lead to a big difference in accuracy.

Another interesting finding was that all 22 products that were claimed to contain full-spectrum CBD had no detectable THC. Full-spectrum hemp extract should contain small amounts (0.3% or less) of THC.

Instead, most of them used broad-spectrum CBD, which is the same as full-spectrum but with THC removed. The most likely explanation is that many CBD brands simply made a mistake in describing their products.

To sum up, if you want to buy a high-quality CBD product for your pet, it’s best to go with a CBD oil from a reputable brand and check the third-party lab tests beforehand to verify the levels of CBD and THC.

That’s 12.5% higher than the label, which is a bit higher than the 10% cutoff required for an A, so we gave it a B rating. Still, that’s not a bad result as the amount of CBD in this product is low, so a few milligrams can make a big difference.

We looked at the company’s cannabitol drops, which should provide 350 mg of CBD but actually had 417.9 mg, which is 19.4% higher.

That’s a solid result but it is shy of the 10% difference required for an A, so it receives a B.

CbdMD is a major CBD brand known for offering THC-free products. Its calming dog chews should have a total of 300 mg of CBD but our third-party tests showed 344.5 mg.

That’s 14.8% higher, which isn’t a terrible result. While it is nice to get more CBD than you paid for, this difference is too big for an A rating and gets a B.

Our tests also showed no THC and several minor cannabinoids, verifying that this is a broad-spectrum hemp product.

We also tested cbdMD’s dog CBD oil. It should contain 250 mg of CBD but the tests showed 275.5 mg.

That’s 10.2% higher, which is a solid result but just 0.2% outside the 10% variance we expect from accurate CBD products, so it gets a B.

The tests also detected two minor cannabinoids and zero THC confirming that this tincture is made with broad-spectrum hemp extract.

CBDfx CBD Oil for Pets

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
CBDfx CBD Oil for Pets B 250 298.533 19.41

CBDfx is one of the most recognized brands out there, so we were curious to see how it would do. We sent its pet CBD oil for third-party testing, finding that it contained 298.5 mg of CBD — 19.4% higher than the labeled amount of 250 mg.

That’s not a terrible result but the difference is large enough to get a B.

The tests also found zero THC and one minor cannabinoid.

 

Smilyn CBD Dog Treats

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Smilyn CBD Dog Treats B 60 53.875 -10.21

A rising brand out of California, Smylin offers a full range of CBD products. Its dog treats should provide 60 mg of CBD but our tests found 53.9 mg, which is 10.2% less.

That’s not a bad result, especially since the total CBD content is low. Still, it’s just shy of the 10% cut-off for our A rating so we gave it a B.

The tests also showed multiple minor cannabinoids and no THC, confirming that this is a broad-spectrum hemp product.

Veritas Farms Pet Tincture

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Veritas Farms Pet Tincture B 200 236.652 18.33

We also tested Veritas Farms’ tincture, which should have 200 mg of CBD. The third-party test results showed found 236.7 mg of CBD, which is 18.3% higher.

That’s too big of a difference for our best rating so it gets a B.

The tests also found minor cannabinoids and no THC, confirming that this is a broad-spectrum CBD product.

Smilyn Dog Tincture

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD+CBDA Amount Actual CBD+CBDA Amount Variance
Smilyn Dog Tincture B 250 277.374 10.95

We also tested Smilyn’s dog tincture, which should provide 250 mg of CBD. The test results found 277.4 mg, which is 11% more.

That’s not a bad result and it’s better to get more CBD than less. However, it’s just shy of the 10% CBD variance we expect from accurate products.

The tests also detected several minor cannabinoids with zero THC, confirming that this is a broad-spectrum CBD product.

Petly CBD Dog Treats

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Petly CBD Dog Treats B 50 58.375 16.75

Petly CBD offers only pet products, so we expected good results.

We sent its dog treats for testing, which should have 50 mg of CBD in total. The tests found 58.4 mg — a difference of 16.8%.

Again, this is not the worst result, especially given the low CBD amount, but it does fall short of our best rating and gets a B.

The tests also found no THC and multiple minor cannabinoids, verifying that this is a broad-spectrum CBD product.

CBD Essence Dog Snacks

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
CBD Essence Dog Snacks C 10 7.041 -29.59

Not satisfied with testing one pet product from CBD Essence, we also looked at its dog treats.

They should have 10 mg of CBD per piece and the tests showed an actual amount of 7 mg, which is almost 30% less.

While we can give CBD Essence some leeway because of the small amount of CBD per treat, this result is not that great and barely falls into our C rating.

The tests also found two minor cannabinoids but no THC, which should be present in a full-spectrum CBD product.

 

Green Roads Small Dog CBD Drops

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Green Roads Small Dog CBD Drops C 60 46.650 -22.25

Florida’s Green Roads is one of the giants of the CBD industry. We looked at its CBD oil for small dogs, which should have 60 mg of CBD. Our tests found 46.7 mg, which is 22.3% less.

Although we can cut the company some slack because this low potency makes it harder to maintain accurate CBD levels, the result is not that great and falls under our C rating.

The tests also found small amounts of the minor cannabinoid CBG.

King Kanine King Kalm Soothe

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
King Kanine King Kalm Soothe C 150 182.520 21.68

We tested several products from the pet-focused brand King Kanine, including their soothe spray. It should contain 150 mg of CBD but the third-party tests found 182.5 mg, which is 21.7 % higher.

That’s not the worst result, especially as you’re getting more CBD rather than less. But it falls short of our best rating and gets a C for being more than 20% off from the label.

The tests also found multiple minor cannabinoids, such as CBG and THCV.

Lazarus Naturals CBD Dog Treats

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Lazarus Naturals CBD Dog Treats C 20 24.031 20.16

We also tested Lazarus Naturals’ dog treats, expecting them to be less accurate than the company’s CBD oil.

The results matched our expectations — the third-party tests detected a total of 24.03 mg of CBD versus the advertised amount of 20 mg, which is 20.1% more.

That’s not a bad result because even a difference of a few milligrams can result in a big change with such low product potency.

The tests also found many minor cannabinoids but no THC, which should be present in a full-spectrum hemp product.

Charlotte’s Web Pet Calming Chews

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Charlotte’s Web Pet Calming Chews F 150 197.861 31.91

We expected that the CBD dog chews from Charlotte’s Web would be less accurate than its CBD oil. They should have 150 mg of CBD in total but actually had 197.9 mg, which is 31.9% higher.

While we’d rather get more CBD than less, this result is too far off the mark and gets an F.

The tests also found multiple minor cannabinoids but no THC, which should be included in a full-spectrum product.

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
Blue Moon TruBLu CBD Dog Tincture F 250 11.160 -95.54

Blue Moon Hemp is perhaps best known for its vape CBD products. We sent its dog tincture for third-party testing, finding that it contained only 11.2 mg of CBD instead of the advertised 250 mg.

That’s 95.5% lower — easily one of the worst results in our investigation and well deserving of an F rating.

Blue Moon CBD Dog Treats F 100 61.183 -38.82

We also tested Blue Moon’s dog treats, which should contain 100 mg of CBD in total but actually had only 61.2 mg. That’s a much better result than the company’s tincture but it’s still not good.

You’re getting 38.9% less CBD than you paid for, which is too big of a difference and receives an F.

CBD Dog Health Cat CBD Oil

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
CBD Dog Health Cat CBD Oil F 120 65.970 -45.03

Despite its name, CBD Dog Health also offers CBD oil for cats. It should have 120 mg of CBD but or tests detected only 66 mg, which is 45% less.

This means you’re getting almost 50% less CBD than you paid for, which is a poor result.

The tests also found several minor cannabinoids but no THC, which should be present in a full-spectrum product.

King Kanine King Kalm Dog Paw Balm

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
King Kanine King Kalm Dog Paw Balm F 363.1 612.250 68.62

We weren’t too sure of the CBD content of King Kanine’s dog paw balm since it wasn’t listed on the product or the company’s website. Instead, we compared our findings to the company’s third-party tests.

King Kanine’s third-party tests showed 363.1 mg of CBD, whereas our independent tests found 612.3 mg — 68.6% more.

While it’s great to get more CBD than you paid for, that’s too big of a difference so this product gets an F for accuracy.

Re Botanicals is a company focusing on organic, environmentally-friendly CBD products. We sent its pet tincture for third-party testing, finding that it contained 407.5 mg of CBD instead of the advertised 300 mg.

That’s 35.8% more — not a great result, even if you’re getting more CBD for free.

CBD Living Pet Cat Nose & Paw Salve F 100 1.534 -98.47

This salve is the second product we tested from the brand CBD Living. It should carry 100 mg of CBD but the third-party tests detected only 1.5 mg — 98.5% less.

That’s one of the worst results we saw during our investigation. It gets an F for containing almost no CBD at all.

The tests also showed two minor cannabinoids and no THC, verifying that this is a broad-spectrum hemp product.

CBD American Shaman Dog Treats

Product Name Rating Claimed CBD Amount Actual CBD Amount Variance
CBD American Shaman Dog Treats F 200 117.135 -41.43

This is the second product we tested from the brand CBD American Shaman. These treats should carry 200 mg of CBD in total but the third-party tests found only 117.1 mg, which is 41.4% lower.

That’s a fairly poor result so we gave it an F. Our tests also found no additional cannabinoids, despite the company saying that these treats are made with full-spectrum hemp extract.

Green Gorilla Pure CBD Single Serving Pack F 15 20.3935 35.96
