Holistic Pet Care With Canis World CBD

Holistic pet care in the form of CBD oil has been known to give your four-legged friend the pain relief they need. Just like humans, cats and dogs have endocannabinoid receptors in their brains that make it possible for cannabinoid compounds to affect them in the same way they affect us. Keep reading below and you’ll find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions regarding CBD use for pets.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What can you give a dog for pain relief?

If an omega-3 fatty acid food supplement isn’t giving your furry friend any relief, then the next best course of action is to give them CBD oil for pain relief. Cannabinoids like CBD play an immunoregulatory role during infectious diseases and chronic ailments.

2. Can humans take pet CBD oil?

To put it simply: yes! Humans and mammalian pet brains have the same endocannabinoid system in their brains, allowing them to process and be affected by CBD. If you don’t want to try our cheese and bacon flavored CBD oil, we also carry naturally-flavored bottles!

3. Is Canis World psychoactive or like marijuana?

The cannabinoids in Canis World is not psychoactive and there is no “high” associated with it, unlike marijuana that contains THC and has psychoactive properties and can give the user a “buzz” or “high”.

Canis World utilizes cannbinoids that are derived from the hemp plant and has been used for centuries as a natural product to produce a wide range of goods from paper to rope to modern day CBD (devoid of THC) extracted from hemp that many users feel produce a wide range of benefits when ingested.

4. What is so magical or important about Cannabinoids or CBD and why is it gaining so much popularity?

Cannbinoids or CBD started coming strongly to the forefront of the public consciousness and awareness when it was discovered it could help a young child named Charlotte Figi, who was suffering from epilepsy and had largely failed the medical options available to her. The FDA classifies CBD as an “investigational drug” and prohibits any “medical claims” to be made regarding CBD.

While this is a nascent industry, the initial findings are compelling, and the industry is currently undergoing a vigorous exploration as to the full applications and methods whereby all of the benefits of CBD can be harnessed for Pets and Humans alike.

5. How much active cannbinoids are in Canis World products?

Canis World created a proprietary blend uniquely for pets.  Each product is not only tested when manufactured but we also pull random bottles to test the level of canninoids in individual bottles as a measure of maintaining high quality control standards.

Every product outlines the active cannabinoids in the bottle.

To accommodate as many pets and individuals as possible, we are quality focused in tandem with being price conscious to make the best products available to the most users.  Our Mission is to help as many pets and humans as possible realize the benefits of quality CBD in an affordable manner.

We ONLY bring to market the products we’ve personally used on our own pets/supervised animals or ingested ourselves.

We only feel it is fair that if it wouldn’t meet our exacting standards to consume personally that we wouldn’t make it available.  All pet products are human grade quality!!!


6. How are Canis World products made?

All of our products are made with fully legal American industrial hemp. We utilize a Kentucky farm so our  products can be closely monitored from farm to table to speak.

The hemp undergoes supercritical carbon dioxide extraction to achieve high concentrations of CBD devoid of impurities. This is also known in the industry as Co2 extraction.

The final products are always tested for purity and the results are  posted online for our consumers.  We take quality control very seriously.

7. What is carbon dioxide extraction?

Carbon dioxide extraction in our opinion is the current industry “gold standard” for extracting CBD as it achieves many important goals.


  1. It does not leave a residue. Importance:  There are no toxic chemicals or remnants residing within the final CBD product.  This means you are getting pure CBD, which is the goal.  Side Note:  Some products are extracted in a manner where there are residual chemicals or heavy metals left behind from the extraction process.  Needless to say, they are undesirable to be comingled with something such as CBD that is being ingested into a pet or human body.
  2. It does not degrade the quality of the CBD or alter the CBD.  Importance:  Pets or Humans are able to ingest CBD that has not been altered or weakened by the separation or extraction process.
  3. It has been tested across other industries for safety. Importance:  You can have a comfort level knowing the food industry along with the supplement industry both commonly use carbon dioxide extraction to achieve superior results with their extraction goals.
  4. Carbon dioxide extraction separates matter precisely. Importance:  Allows for the achievement of only the purest form of the CBD matter.  Purity is good!
8. Are Canis World products safe?

Yes.  There is no known toxicity to CBD, which is our first and foremost concern.  The products are safe.

Finding a personal therapeutic level for you or your pet can be explored safely without a concern for toxicity.   As with any new supplement undertaking, it is always prudent to consult with your medical provider.  The recommended dosage levels are general guidelines and can be adjusted upward or downward to achieve individualized maximal therapeutic levels as no two humans or pets are identical.

Safety and Satisfaction are always our biggest priorities. Read more about our quality assurance.

9. Where does Canis World hemp and CBD come from?

Our hemp is sustainably farmed to USDA Organic standards in Kentucky.  It conforms to the 2014 Farm Bill – Section 7606 Act for Hemp.  After harvesting the hemp, the CBD extraction process is performed in an expeditious fashion for product optimization. All extracted CBD is then packaged into final products and tested for quality assurance to make sure the seed to sale chain of quality is consistent and unbroken.

Recently the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill or Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018; The Farm Bill ensures that any cannabinoid—a set of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant—that is derived from hemp will be legal, if and only if that hemp is produced in a manner consistent with the Farm Bill, associated federal regulations, association state regulations, and by a licensed grower. 

10. Would my pet take Canis World every single day?

yes, consistency is a valuable aspect.  We subscribe to the protocol of Relief – Corrective and Maintenance for using Canis World.Our products are 30ml bottles.  These bottles come capped and sealed and a dropper to administer the Canis World product on the side.  The dropper is on the side because the product will fade the unit of measurement off of the dropper over time.  Believe me, we explored a lot of different dropper options!

A full dropper is 1ml.  Therefore there would be approx. 30 droppers in one product.  The amount of active cannbinoids in a dropper depends on the actual product selection.

We know the industry can be confusing, therefore if you have specific questions, go to a home page and feel free to specifically ask any questions you may have.  Your questions are important for us to answer as a part of our mission is to ensure pet parents are well informed so their pets get the proper guidelines for their needs.

11. What is the difference between a CBD oil and CBD Tincture?

Traditionally speaking, the word tincture refers to an alcohol base, simply because humanity figured out how to make alcohol in larger volumes long before we had the tools to press an equal amount of seeds without thousands of hours of labor.

Today, the term “oil tincture” has gained some popularity for oil-based products that are still taken via dropper like traditional tinctures. Therefore, we have opted to use oil in our tinctures instead of alcohol.

Hemp oil (often found in some general stores) is referred to as “Hemp Seed Oil” Hemp oil is praised for its nutritional value being rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. Hemp Seed oil contains little to no CBD.

So is Canis World product line a tincture or an oil? We prefer to use the term Oil Tincture. If one wanted to be truly “technical” we are not a tincture as the products are oil-based and contain no alcohol. Many products on the market contain little to no CBD. It is important to note that ALL Canis World products contain top quality CBD. For instance, a 1,000mg bottle of Canis World CBD is contained in a 30ml bottle and has 1 gram of CBD contained in that bottle (a 500mg bottle of Canis World contained in a 30ml bottle contains 1/2 a gram of CBD).

12. Are there side effects?

There are no known side effects using cannbinoids or Canis World products.  In some cases, dogs who may be taking greater amounts of Canis World add some fiber to their diet to help the digestive system.  We always recommend observation of your pet and opening a diaglog with your veternarian if needed.

13. My dog has allergies, will Canis World irritate dogs with allergies?

For our pet pals who have have allergies, we recommend the natural flavor product line opposed to flavored products such as bacon or cheese. 

14. How long before I see the product helping my pet?

The answer to this question varies as it depends on the nature of the issue, age and size (weight) of the dog.  In some instances pet parents have reported observing results in 24 hours or less.  With other pets and issues it can take a good 14-21 days (again it can vary depending on several factors).

15. What is the endocannbinoid system?

Our pets have CB-1 receptors in the brain and  CB-2 receptors in the body, their natural messenger cannabinoids are anandamide and 2-AG, anandamide’s effects can occur in either the central or peripheral nervous system. These distinct effects are mediated primarily by CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the central nervous system, and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the periphery. The latter are mainly involved in functions of the immune system.

16. How much do Canis World do I give my dog for dosing

Canis World does not believe in a one-size fits all approach.  There are “general guidelines” but also consider a dog with some minor joint stiffness may have very different needs than a dog experiencing a lot of joint stiffness.  Canis World believes every dog is unique in his/her own needs.

Our “general” dosing guideline is:

Relief: 1mg per lb

Corrective: .75mg per lb

Maintenance: .5mg per lb

17. Why does Canis World use Hemp Seed Oil and not MCT oil or other carrier oils?

Canis World is more about a holistic approach and utilizing Hemp Seed oil as the carrier oil for the cannbinoids contained within our products was selected to maintain a whole plant approach.  I have never seen a dog climb a coconut tree, that doesn’t mean coconut oil is bad for your dog it just wasn’t the whole plant approach Canis World wanted to take.  We elected to utilize a very natural approach whereby hemp seed oil is a great ratio of Omega 3 and 6 for dogs.  In fact, some pet parents that raw feed their dogs will add sardines OR things like hemp seed oil to their dogs meals.

18. Why doesn't Canis World create/sell a pet treat product?

Canis World is about empowering pet parents to have precision and control for the best needs for your pet. Pre-made dog treats that contain cannabinoids (or CBD) have other ingredients. Sometimes those other ingredients are said to be natural supplements or natural binding products to keep the shape etc. This means all these items have to be sourced from another vendor to provide those additional ingredients….here at Canis World we are very passionate about our pet pals and do not want to take on additional pitfalls of relying on other vendors and their quality control measures. Many dog food manufacturers utilize “pre-mixes” or blends that contain various supplements and nutrients and well, we have all seen various recalls and issues pertaining to that.

Canis World takes a whole plant approach so we are in direct control of everything that goes into our product so we can be assured we are providing safe quality products. We don’t believe in “muddying” the waters, cannibinoids have value just as hemp seed has value – we stick with what we can control in quality and value for the best interest of the bests. If you want to add supplements to your pets daily regime we believe that control should be in the pet parents hands to select and source the right supplements best for your specific pet because no two pets are alike in his/her needs.

Questions about Canis World

1. Why should I buy from Canis World?

This is probably the most important question you could ask yourself, so please excuse the detailed and lengthy response, but we are products of our product and our reason for bringing Canis World forward is a very close reason.

We love animals (and humans too), but we especially love our dog Christopher Robin. Because the FDA prohibts making an “medical claims” we will just say our dog had a very real need whereby we felt he would gain some benefit from cannbinoids.

Because our story is personal and the pain we underwent was very real, it motivated us to start the company in the hopes that others may not have to endure the suffering and loss of time we went through.

When Canis World was initially developed for our dog, we were able to realize positive realities that we were grateful for.  As they say “seeing is believing” therefore after that journey we felt it incumbent upon us to share something very positive with those like us, who love their pets as parents love children, and would only provide their pet or themselves with the best quality product they could find.  Everything Canis World sells is 100% highest human-grade quality and equally good for humans or pets.

When you’ve seen the unthinkable take place in a remarkable fashion before your own eyes it makes you a believer.  We’ve seen many remarkable pet stories and also human stories.  While we realize these are only “anecdotal” and not formally scientifically documented, we also realize the science is quickly emerging to catch up with and substantiate much of what we’ve witnessed.

We did not come forward with Canis World as a brand to back a buck on the back of dogs, Canis World is truly about a cause and love for pets.  We care greatly about our pet parents and pet pals and feel our customers become not just a buyer of Canis World but a part of Canis World and the true cause of helping bring quality to our pets lives.

2. What is the purpose or vision of Canis World?

To help as many Dogs, Cats and Humans have positive and transformative experiences with quality CBD.  To provide this service at an affordable rate in a cheerful, helpful, kind and compassionate manner.  To treat our customers in the same way we would want to be treated, with respect, kindness and love.

We actively work with a pet rescue organization as we are motivated to pay it forward to pets in as many ways as we can!

3. Do we need a prescription from our vet to purchase Canis World?

Currently, we work with several veternarian partners that believe in the product, understand the high threshold of quality control measures and recommend the product to their clients.  However, veternarians do not prescribe cannabidiol or Canis World.  Because the FDA still deems “CBD” as an “investigational drug” and the AVMA hasn’t taken a supportive stance as of this time, veternarians may offer recommendations to buy Canis World, but would not write a prescription.

Canis World does collect various client experiences in conjunction with working with our vet partners to help provide the dosing guidelines we have recommended.

4. What’s your return policy?

Return any of our products within 30 days of purchase.  Return shipping cost is at customer’s expense. Full “product” refund will be provided once product is returned.  Product returns must be sealed (not used nor opened). Please note: Canis World will not refund any shipping fees but will fully refund product cost.
