How to Make CBD Dog Treats

Ok, so let’s give you a homemade CBD dog treat recipe that is tasty and offers potential benefits. Let’s start with the ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Pumpkin Puree 
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups Whole Wheat Flour 
  • ½ cup Oats
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter 
  • Approximate dosage of CBD oil as recommended by your vet based on your pet’s weight

Okay, now that you know what you’ll need for the CBD treats, let’s give you the steps to accomplish making them.

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, and peanut butter. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed.
  3. Add CBD Oil: Mix the CBD oil into the wet ingredients thoroughly to ensure it's evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: Mix the whole wheat flour and oats together in another bowl.
  5. Combine Mixtures: Gradually add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients, mixing until the dough is firm. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  6. Roll Out the Dough: On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  7. Cut Out Treats: Use a cookie cutter to cut out treats. You can use bone-shaped cutters or any shape that you like.
  8. Bake: Place the treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the treats are hard and golden brown.
  9. Cool Down: Allow the treats to cool completely on a rack before giving them to your dog.
  10. Storage: Store the treats in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze them for longer storage.

Additional Tips:

  • Always start with a low dose of CBD and observe how your dog reacts to it.
  • Consistency is key when using CBD treats for therapeutic effects.
  • Never leave your pet unattended after administering CBD. Check for signs of discomfort and have clean fresh water accessible to them at all times. 
  • Avoid ingredients harmful to dogs, like chocolate, grapes, raisins, or anything with xylitol.

When talking about CBD or THC gummies for dogs, we don’t mean the same kind of gummies intended for human use. But since you’ll sometimes see CBD treats for dogs labeled as “gummies,” we want to give you a recipe to make these soft chews at home. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 cup chicken broth (make sure it is low sodium and onion-free)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 cups brown rice flour (or another flour safe for dogs, like oat or coconut flour)
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 egg (optional; helps to bind the dough)
  • Appropriate dosage of CBD oil as recommended by your vet

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven: Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: Combine Herbs, Liquids, and CBD Oil in a medium-sized bowl, and mix the parsley, mint, chicken broth, melted coconut oil, and CBD oil. If you are using an egg, beat it lightly and add it to the mixture.
  3. Mix the Flours: In a separate large bowl, combine the brown rice flour and oat flour.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until you form a firm dough. If the dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour; if it's too dry, add a little more broth or water.
  5. Knead and Roll the Dough: Knead the dough on a floured surface and roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Cut-Out Chews: Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut out shapes or strips suitable for your dog's size.
  7. Bake: Place the cut-outs on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they are brown and crispy.
  8. Cool: Let the chews cool completely on a wire rack before offering them to your dog.
  9. Store: The chews can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or frozen for longer storage.

Additional Tips

  • Distribute the CBD oil evenly in the mixture to ensure that each chew has a consistent amount of CBD.
  • Always supervise your dog when eating chews to ensure they chew them thoroughly and don’t swallow large pieces.
  • Regularly using these chews can help with dental health and potentially with other conditions due to the added CBD.
