Buying CBD oil for your dog can be confusing. CBD oil offers dogs several benefits. But with all the different products out there claiming to be the best, it can be hard to be confident in your decision. But if there’s one thing a dog owner should consider above all else when buying CBD oil, it is the Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
The COA is loaded with need-to-know information that directly affects you and your pet. From it you can make the best, most informed decision possible when buying CBD oil for your dog.
There are three things that you should look for in a Certificate of Authenticity:
A COA shows the milligrams (mg) per milliliter (mL) of hemp oil. Knowing the potency of the CBD oil you’re considering will help you determine how much the dose for your dog will be. Giving your dog too much can be wasteful, and too little may be ineffective, though it is always better to administer less than the suggested dose to start. When buying CBD oil, keep in mind the size of your dog. (Check out our CBD Dosing Guide For Dogs here.)
The COA will show any other chemicals or ingredients present in your dog’s CBD oil. This is important, as some CBD oils will contain traces of other compounds commonly found in hemp, like THC. THC is the chemical sought after in marijuana, which causes people to feel high. THC can be dangerous for pets. It is best to avoid hemp oils that have trace amounts of THC. Fortunately, the compound can be removed from hemp oil through sophisticated manufacturing processes, but not all hemp oil products are made this way.
A third-party testing agency is an unbiased testing agency. They’re more likely to have stricter standards than an in-house testing agency, and have nothing to gain by fudging numbers. A company willing to put their product into the hands of a third-party testing agency is a company that trusts its product.
Where Do I Find The Certificate Of Authenticity?
Companies aren’t required to show their Certificate of Authenticity. Many consumers don’t even realize that they are taking a leap of faith when buying CBD oil.
Dr. Stephanie McGrath, who is studying the effectiveness of CBD oil in dogs at the University of Colorado, recommends being informed. She suggests getting a Certificate of Authenticity from the company you are buying CBD oil from so that you know exactly what is going into your dog’s body.
