CBD products for pets is a growing market with a whole list of benefits for our furry friends, but it also carries changing laws and restrictions that your Veterinarian must adhere to as a medical professional. This page will discuss some of the most common questions and concerns about CBD that pet owners are asking. It will give you some basic facts and benefits, then, if you think you want to know more, we will give you a source to dive deeper.
what is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in both the cannabis and hemp plant. Because CBD can come from two different plant sources, it is important to know which CBD plant you are buying and the difference between the two. The main difference is THC. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive properties. Our product contains < 0.3% THC and all of our CBD products are derived from hemp.
Understanding what CBD can do for your pet’s wellness is easier if you know what CBD is and how it is used. Cannabinoids (CBD) molecules interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) present in humans and pets (and other animals), which is tied to nearly every other body system like the nervous system, immune system, circulatory system, digestive system, etc. The ECS is responsible for many aspects of normal, healthy functioning of these different body systems. CBD improves the function of the naturally produced endocannabinoids already circulating in our pets’ bodies, and also mimics other important naturally produced signaling molecules like serotonin. There have been clinical trials demonstrating some of the benefits of CBD at a few veterinary colleges, including Cornell and the University of Florida, where our founding veterinarians, Dr. Katie Green and Dr. Kyra Marsigliano, were trained.
Even though pets can't tell us in words how they feel, they show us in their behaviors. When your pet becomes more active, eats better, and moves more freely you can be sure you have alleviated their discomfort.

SimpliSolve CBD sheets use patented Excelasorb Technology to allow your pet to absorb CBD quickly and easily through their gums.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD?
Because of CBD’s ability to directly trigger receptors in many-body systems, and its additional ability to enhance the effects and availability of other naturally occurring molecules in the body, CBD can have a lot of benefits. Pet owners who use our CBD Vet Products use it for all the things that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) supports: behavioral support and normal neurologic function, modulation of the inflammatory system, even occasional discomfort and stress. The most surprising benefits come when pet owners didn’t know their pet’s ECS had deficits, and then see behavioral changes and improvements to their pet’s quality of life they hadn’t noticed were suboptimal.

What Are the Side Effects of CBD?
CBD is generally well tolerated by dogs and cats, with minimal side effects seen. Occasionally, mild, transient diarrhea or sedation may occur, more commonly when starting CBD. Some pets who are sensitive to bitter flavors may experience transient hypersalivation that goes away after a few minutes.
CBD can cause mild, transient elevations in a particular liver enzyme that is not associated with disease or dysfunction, so it is important to ensure your veterinarian is aware of any CBD your pet is taking. Additionally, CBD can interact with certain medications (similar to how humans on certain medications need to be careful when eating grapefruit) by affecting their levels in the blood (either increasing or decreasing them), so this is another reason to always let your veterinarian know if you are administering CBD. If your veterinarian is unsure about CBD’s interactions with the drugs your pet is on, they can contact one of our veterinarians for a complimentary consult.
cbd sheets - How many sheets should my pet take?
SimpliSolve sheets have CBD and other important hemp extract components evenly distributed throughout each sheet. The sheets are just slightly bigger than 1 square inch. They can be easily folded and ripped into an appropriate size for your pet, based on their weight, for easy administration.
For pets up to 20 lbs, we recommend giving 1/4 of a sheet twice daily. For 21-50 lb pets, one-half sheet is recommended. And pets over 50 lbs tend to benefit from a full sheet twice daily.
Of course, this guideline is based on what SimpliSolve users have found helpful, but some pets may require more or less than generally recommended based on the functioning of their individual endocannabinoid system.
things to consider When Buying CBD?
If you and your veterinarian decide that you should try CBD for your pet, there are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing CBD. Not all products are the same; you’ll want good-quality CBD to have a better chance of it working.
Look for Organic or Natural Ingredients. If the CBD oil is not organic, it at least should not contain pesticides, fungicides, or solvents.
Don’t Shop Based on Price. Price is not always the best indication of quality. There are plenty of options that could contain toxic substances such as pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals. Make sure to check the COAs for any product you are considering to make sure you are getting the best product for your pet.
Certificate of Analysis. Look for a company that provides their Certificate of Analysis. Certificates of Analysis gives you the comfort of knowing exactly what is in the product you are purchasing. Companies that don’t provide these full analyses for every batch may be hiding something. Their product may have a significantly lower concentration of CBD than what they claim on the bag or bottle. It may be contaminated with something that could make your pet sick. In some cases, it may not contain any beneficial cannabinoids at all, and you could be pouring money down the drain.
Veterinarian Formulated. If you can find a company created by Veterinarians, typically, you can skip past the worry or "Does it work?" and "What is in it?".

What makes CBD Vet Products different?
It is true there are hundreds of pet companies selling thousands of products supposedly formulated for your pet. But we can promise you, there is nothing like what CBD Vet Products has to offer.
Our unique flagship product, SimpliSolve dissolving CBD sheets, provides the benefits of CBD with an effectiveness and ease of administration that will have you ditching CBD oil and treats as quickly as these sheets dissolve in your pet’s mouth. With patented Excelisorb technology, the sheets are absorbed directly from the lining of your pet’s mouth and into their bloodstream. Through this transmucosal route, there is faster and greater absorption of the beneficial molecules. In contrast, when CBD is given orally such as in a treat or oil, a large portion of the CBD is metabolized and discarded by the body before it has a chance to be absorbed and utilized. And because absorption is significantly slower with those other products, it can take hours before pets see benefits, compared to SimpliSolve. A final benefit of our SimpliSolve’s unique delivery system is that pet’s can’t spit it out and they don’t have to willingly take it -- although most pets come running when they hear the cassette open and smell the sheets’ delicious chicken flavor. For pets feeling poorly and not wanting to eat, owners need only lift their lip and stick the sheet on a pink surface (mucous membrane) like the gums or inner cheek. The sheet dissolves in seconds, before even the pickiest pet can refuse. If only giving everything to your pet was this simple!
Aside from the unique product itself, our founders bring their extensive knowledge of the hemp plant, veterinary medicine, and the endocannabinoid system. No other company brings this combination and level of expertise to the industry, which explains why there is no product quite like what CBD Vet Products has to offer.
Of course, there is no greater explanation than experience. Place your order and let us show you the difference with SimpliSolve by CBD Vet Products.
The dissolvable strips worked wonderfully for my four large breed dogs. Fireworks & thunderstorms are usually filled with lots of pacing & whining. This year, as soon as the New Years' fireworks started, I gave everyone a sheet, and shortly later everyone was sleeping or considerably more relaxed. I highly recommend and will continue to use SimpliSolve CBD Sheets!
Thank you so much Kenneth Smith for introducing me to SimpliSolve. I give it to my dog and it helps her so much! She's so much calmer and relaxed. If your dog has something going on like anxiety or itchiness, you should try this product!
