As you likely know by now, CBD has taken the worldwide marketplace by storm as it offers a natural and safe path towards better health and wellness. And as many people are taking CBD and reporting numerous benefits, those with pets are now wondering if CBD can help their favorite four-legged friends. And if so, can they simply give Fido a dose of their own CBD or is it necessary to buy CBD meant for pets? And what exactly is the difference?
So let’s take a look at these questions.
Can CBD Help My Pet?
Well, this is actually a more loaded question than you might think, and the answer depends on who you talk to. The FDA has made CBD legal so long as it contains 0.3% THC or less. But they do not allow CBD manufacturers to make any claims that it helps any sort of ailment. In other words, we are not allowed to tell you exactly how CBD may help your pet – or you for that matter – so you’ll have to do some research on how CBD can help both people and pets in their wellness quest.
What we can say is that if you, or someone you know, take CBD and has experienced positive benefits from it, then it is quite likely that pets can get these same benefits from the product. In fact, the American Kennel Club is sponsoring a study that is being carried out at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences to determine if CBD can help dogs. Specifically, the study is researching whether or not epileptic dogs, who are not responding to other treatments, can be helped by using CBD. This is an exciting development, as it may be able to provide scientifically measured proof of that CBD has beneficial health effects – at least in dogs.
But for now, suffice it to say that, whatever CBD does for you, it can likely do the same for your pets.
Can I Just Give My Pet the Same CBD as I Take?
CBD is a cannabidiol that is metabolized and used the same way in humans and mammal pets like cats and dogs. All of us process CBD through our endocannabinoid system (ECS), and the human body, as well as all mammalian bodies, have many of these receptors. The receptors absorb and utilize CBD in much the same way across all species of mammals. Therefore, it stands to reason that CBD would have similar effects and benefits for mammalian pets as it does for humans. Just as CBD helps to regulate and balance bodily functions in humans, it does the same in pets and contributes to a better state of homeostasis and health for us all.
However, always proceed with some caution.
Make Sure Your CBD Is of the Best Quality
First and foremost, you should be sure that the CBD that you are taking yourself or giving to your pets is of the highest quality. There are many imitators out there who make a substandard product simply to make a quick buck, with no regard for the safety or health of the consumer. These “knock-offs” may not only be useless in helping you to attain better health, but they may also actually contain chemicals or preservatives that are harmful.
So how do you make sure that you are getting what you pay for? First of all, don’t price shop. When it comes to CBD, cheaper is not always better. Usually, the reason those subpar brands are cheaper is because they use shortcuts to bring you the product – but that product is essentially worthless.
Secondly, keep in mind that there should be no difference in the ingredients or quality of CBD that you would give to your pet or take yourself. But how can you tell if what you’re buying is the highest quality?
The answer is as simple as two words: lab reports. The only way to really know if the CBD you are taking is of the highest quality is to look for lab reports. Legitimate companies are more than happy to post these findings on their website, so they should not be hard to find. We here at Rejuvia are very proud of where our hemp comes from, the quality of our ingredients, and the fact that we have the lab reports to prove that our products are stellar. Not only do we do thorough in-house testing, but we use third-party testing so that you can be certain that we are fully transparent and truthful. Our products are second-to-none, and we proudly post those results so you can be certain of what you consume.
The Big Difference: Dosage
Thus far, we have discussed the fact that mammals process CBD in much the same fashion, regardless of species. So CBD is essentially the same for pets and humans with one significant difference being dosage amounts. Dogs and other pets are usually much smaller than humans, so dosing becomes an important issue when you give your pets CBD.
Rule of Thumb
While there are currently no standard recommendations for dosing CBD for either humans or pets, we can help you with a good place to start. Here are a couple of relatively easy computations that you can use to determine how much CBD to give your pet.
The general recommendation is:
- .25mg for each 1 pound of body weight for a regular dose
- .5 mg for each 1 pound of body weight for a strong dose
This is essentially the equivalent of 1 to 6 mg per 10 pounds of body weight.
And while we do not recommend giving your pet a higher than the recommended dosage, keep in mind that, even if you overdose your pet by a large margin, the consequences are typically limited to some stomach upset, possibly with some vomiting or diarrhea. Therefore, if you see your pet reacting with any of these symptoms, be sure to adjust the dosage downward.

If you are like many people, you may be very interested in the “wonder supplement” known as CBD and the many benefits it has to offer. After all, there has been much excitement about CBD across the country in recent years – and with good reason. You may have already tried CBD and experienced many of those benefits yourself. If you’re like many people, however, it can often be somewhat difficult to make a change to your daily routine and to remember to take a supplement – even one you really like – on a regular basis. This is understandable. We are, after all, creatures of habit. For this reason, many have asked: What about pairing CBD with a daily habit that many of us already have anyway? And that’s when the idea of CBD coffee was born.
CBD and Coffee – A Well-Balanced Way to Start Your Day
It’s no secret that many of us enjoy a good, strong cup of coffee. For many of us – an estimated 75% of Americans, in fact – coffee is a regular part of our day. We start our morning with a cup of coffee or perhaps enjoy a mug as a mid-afternoon pick me up. It only makes sense that pairing CBD with something we are used to consuming each day would be an easy way to remember to take it regularly and to enjoy doing so as well.
If this sounds like an appealing option for you, at Rejuvia, we are happy to offer the good news that you are not alone in thinking so. In fact, across the country, many coffee shops are beginning to serve CBD infused beverages or bottling and selling varieties of iced CBD coffees in stores across the country. This doesn’t mean that you need to purchase your CBD coffee from a shop, though – certainly, you can enjoy the ease and convenience of adding CBD to your coffee at home, too.
The increasing popularity of CBD coffee vendors across the country naturally leads to the question: Why? Why is CBD coffee a popular option, other than making it easy to include CBD as a part of your regular daily routine? There are quite a few reasons, in fact. It appears that the two actually interact quite well and provide a calming, yet focused effect that many who drink CBD coffee enjoy.
As most people know, coffee, unless it’s decaffeinated, contains caffeine, which is one of the primary reasons people drink it: It produces an alert, awake feeling. Along with that alert, awake feeling, some find themselves feeling jittery after consuming too much coffee. CBD, by contrast, has been known to encourage feelings of calm and relaxation. As a result, when the two work in synergy, many experience what has often been described as a feeling of “focused calm.” The two effectively work to balance one another out, allowing the consumer to experience the benefits of both without some of the side effects like “coffee jitters” that are unwanted.
Another advantage of combining CBD and coffee is that it is very easy and almost effortless to do. One way is to add your CBD oil directly to your coffee. If you’re already used to taking CBD in tincture form, this is as simple as placing the dropperful into your cup instead of under your tongue. If you’re taking softgels, placing the bottle of softgels next to your coffee brewer may be a good way to remind yourself to take your CBD at the same time as your coffee. Simply swallow the softgel with a sip of water, and then follow it up with your morning mug of coffee.
Needless to say, if you decide to combine CBD with your daily cup of joe or with any other beverage of preference, it is important to keep in mind that, in so many ways, we are each unique, and our bodies react differently to different combinations of supplements and foods. As a result, it may take a bit of experimentation to decide whether you like CBD coffee, and if so, the amount of each that best fits your needs. Making the effort to do so, however, could ultimately result in an enjoyable and beneficial long-term addition to your daily routine.

It goes without saying that if you decide to add CBD to your coffee, or as any other part of your daily routine, the kind of CBD products that you choose will make a significant difference in the overall quality of your experience. After all, CBD products, like many other types of products, are ultimately only as beneficial and effective as the effort that goes into creating them. That is why, at Rejuvia, we focus on quality each step of the way – from the time that the first hemp seed is planted into the ground until the final product ultimately reaches our shelves.
At Rejuvia, this focus on quality from seed to bottle means sourcing our CBD from our proprietary strain of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp, grown in the clean, nutrient-rich soil of Colorado. It means placing that hemp through a high-tech extraction and purification process that ensures that all of the beneficial compounds and ingredients, that our customers want, remain, while any unwanted ingredients, including THC, are filtered out. It also means labeling each product with exactly the ingredients that are included, and third-party lab testing all of our products to ensure purity and potency. We believe that our customers deserve the very best CBD products, and we make every effort to provide them.
If you are considering adding CBD to your coffee or making it part of your daily routine in another way, we would encourage you to give us a call. We would be glad to have the opportunity to talk with you, to answer any questions you may have about our products, and to help you find a product that suits your needs. Visit us soon!

In 2018, the federal Farm Bill was passed, legalizing the sale of hemp and all hemp-derived products containing .3% or less THC. This was excellent news for many who wanted to experience all of the benefits that hemp and hemp-derived products have to offer, including CBD products of all kinds.
The question for many, however, is how exactly to go about doing that? Many of us, for one reason or another, often find it difficult to change our habits. Adding something new to an already established routine can prove difficult if we don’t think ahead about how we can make it possible.
At Rejuvia, we believe in providing pure, premium, potent CBD products that can benefit everybody, and we truly believe that each customer can find a product that will be an excellent fit for his or her needs. We also believe strongly in the importance of providing information – not only about CBD itself but also about how it can be used and incorporated into your day-to-day life. If you believe that CBD would be a beneficial addition to your daily routine, here are some suggestions on how you can easily do so:
- Pair CBD with your morning coffee: Many of us enjoy starting our day with a hot cup of coffee. If you do, then you already have an easy, built-in way to begin your day with CBD. CBD actually pairs very well with coffee, and in fact, many coffee shops and retailers across the country offer coffee with CBD already included as an additive. While that is a wonderful option, it works just as well to add CBD to your coffee at home. If you make your coffee at home, simply keep your CBD oil near your coffeemaker as an easy way to remember. You can either add the CBD oil directly to your coffee, or if you prefer tinctures, you can place a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue before enjoying your coffee. If softgels are your CBD product of choice, simply swallow your softgel with a sip of water first, then have your coffee and start your day, knowing that you’ve already done something beneficial for your well-being. And good news for the non-coffee drinkers, too: CBD pairs well with any morning beverage of choice!
- Add CBD to your daily skincare routine: Most of us have established daily routines for self-care, and this often includes taking care of our skin. Often, we use a daily cream, face wash, or other beneficial skin product that we apply in the morning, evening, or both. Fortunately for those interested in using CBD, it is a very versatile supplement that comes in a variety of forms, including beneficial topical applications like creams, salves, and balms. Adding one of these topical products to your usual routine at the same time as you apply your other products would be an easy step to making sure you are receiving the benefits of CBD each day. Finding the exact amount of CBD to apply to your skin to receive the benefits you desire may require some trial and error at first, but most customers quickly discover the amount that best fits their needs and enjoy making those products a part of their daily routine.
- Adding CBD to your daily supplement and vitamin routine: Many people already have an assortment of supplements and vitamins that they take each day. If you are considering taking CBD in a softgel form, it is very easy to simply add that capsule in with the others that you take each day. CBD is such a versatile supplement that it can be taken at any time of day, so simply adding it to your daily morning or evening vitamin routine is an easy step to make sure you’re receiving those benefits on a daily basis. Simply keep your CBD in the same place that you keep your vitamins or other supplements as an easy way to remember it each day.
- Keep CBD edibles in your purse, backpack, or car: Many of us are often on-the-go. Life in our busy world can be hectic, and it can be difficult to use supplements that require a great deal of preparation or planning ahead. That’s why CBD edibles are an excellent choice to simply keep in your car, purse, or backpack when you are out and about. Having your CBD supplements close by can be helpful in remembering to take them each day – particularly when they are delicious and easy to take at any time of day that is convenient.

However you choose to incorporate CBD into your daily routine, it is important, of course, to make sure the CBD you are using is of a quality that will deliver the benefits you want. As is the case with so many products, not all CBD products are of the same quality. It is important to choose products from a provider who focuses on quality and purity – one who uses natural farming methods and carefully oversees the manufacturing process each step of the way. A provider that wants to make sure that the end result is a pure, premium product full of the beneficial ingredients you want while being free of the harmful and unhelpful additives that you don’t.
At Rejuvia, that is exactly the type of product that we offer. From seed to bottle, our focus is on quality – with every product, every time.
