Let’s talk about CBD Infused Peanut Butter 🥜In this blog I’ll address topics like choosing the right peanut butter for your dog, why CBD infused peanut butter is the bomb, when to use it and how much you should give to your dog.
Firstly, what’s the big deal about dog-specific peanut butter?
Before my dog mom days, I was completely naive to dog-specific products. Honestly, I thought dogs had sturdy constitutions that could withstand pretty much any kind of food.
While that’s true in some cases, there are in fact many many foods which are dangerous and even deadly to our dogs. The first being xylitol. This is a product found quite a few human peanut butter brands. If you’re new to the whole sugar-free craze, xylitol is a natural sugar substitute. It’s used in low calorie peanut butters to sweeten them up. Great for humans but absolutely deadly to dogs.
If peanut butters aren’t artificially sweetened, they often include sugar or extras like chocolate or honey comb. These are obviously a no-go for dogs.
Another ingredient in peanut butter is salt. Tiny bits of salt won’t do huge amounts of harm to your dog and can actually assist in their electrolyte balance, but over time it will take a toll on their kidneys. It’s best to steer clear of any peanut butter with any of these ingredients.
So as a dog owner, how the heck are you supposed to find an appropriate peanut butter for your dog? Thankfully there are many locally produced pet peanut butters which are completely safe for your dog.
When looking for a pet-safe peanut butter, look out for short ingredient lists free of xylitol, sugar, and salt.
Ok, this peanut butter is possibly the best I’ve ever encountered. I have to admit, I’ve added some to my own smoothies in the morning. What makes From The Barkery Peanut Butter so special?
Firstly, it’s infused with their CBD Dog Tincture. CBD oil holds incredible powers for your dog. If you have questions about CBD oil for pets, I address ALL THE QUESTIONS in my previous blog found here.
Each From The Barkery CBD Infused Peanut Butter 250g jar contains 250mg CBD oil. This means, every teaspoon contains the perfect dosage of 5mg CBD oil.
This nut butter is free from added preservatives, stabilisers, salts and sugars which is incredible! An added benefit of this butter is that is contains hemp seed powder. Hemp seeds are a superfood for humans and pets. They’re packed with things like protein, omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, iron, zinc, B vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin E.
It’s safe to say this peanut butter is THE BOMB!
What do you use peanut butter for?
This is a pretty obvious answer – because it’s YUM! Ok, this isn’t the only reason. I use this peanut butter to top off my stuffed toys like Kongs and Dog’s Life treat hiders. It freezes really well and also adds a great ingredient to baking homemade dog biscuits. I also like to add this peanut butter to lick mats like these. Lastly, I use peanut butter in the girls’ grooming routine like a religion. Without it there would be chaos and crying. I specifically use it during bath time and nail clipping days- life saver!
How to know the correct amount to give my dog?
Thankfully From The Barkery has a a recommended dosage guideline on their peanut butter jar. This is recommended but sometimes I give my girls a little more on some days depending on how good they’ve been 😉
