What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or ‘CBD’ is an organic and naturally occurring compound that comes from the leaves, stalks, stems and the flowers of the hemp variety of the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and should not be confused with tetrahydrocannabinol or ‘THC’, which is derived from the marijuana variety of the cannabis plant.
Charli products only use non-psychoactive hemp-derived CBD oil (which means your pet will not get high).
What is Full-Spectrum CBD Oil?
The cannabis plant contains over one hundred organic cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG and CBN. The cannabis plant also contains other compounds called terpenes and terpenoids. When the cannabinoids and terpenes mentioned above are consumed together, a phenomenon known as the ‘entourage effect’ produces more potent results in your pet’s body. The entourage effect proposes that the synergistic relationship between all of the cannabis plant’s compounds results in a person or an animal to take maximum advantage of the benefits of CBD. Simply put, full-spectrum CBD oil is a testament to the old saying: “the sum is greater than its parts”.
In contrast, CBD oil isolate and broad spectrum CBD oil products do not contain all of the cannabis plants’ cannabinoids and terpenes. In turn, these products do not take advantage of the ‘entourage effect’ and thus, are less effective than full-spectrum CBD oil products.
When choosing CBD oil for your dog, choosing full-spectrum CBD will achieve the most powerful results.
How Does CBD Work for Dogs?
Similar to humans and other living beings, dogs have specific cannabinoid receptors in their brain and central nervous system comprised of what is called the endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoids found in CBD support your pet’s endocannabinoid system in the same way as humans experience the benefits of CBD, including an enhanced sense of calm, relief from anxiety, neurological support and reduced inflammation in worn and tired joints.
What's the Best Way to Give CBD Oil to My Dog?
Our Charli CBD oil can be applied directly to your pet’s mouth or placed on their food or treats. Instructions for administration will also be included on our packaging.
Is CBD Safe for My Dog?
CBD is 100% safe for your pets to consume. The beneficial effects of CBD on your pet are almost identical to the benefits you will experience when consuming CBD.
How Often Can My Dog Use CBD?
Each Charli product will provide recommended serving sizes and instructions on how much CBD your dog should consume. However, the best dosage amount and frequency for each pet is an art, not a science. That means ,most pet parents will need to experiment with the amount of CBD they give to their dog until they see the best results. Remember, every pet is unique, so some dogs will require more CBD than the recommended dosage guidelines. If you do not notice a change, it’s okay to increase the amount of CBD given, so long as this is done slowly over time.
Can My Dog Overdose on CBD?
It is extremely unlikely to give a large enough amount of CBD to seriously harm a pet. We recommend starting slow when introducing any new supplement to your dog’s diet.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
The positive effects of CBD will vary from pet to pet depending on its size, shape, age and overall health. It is generally recommended to start with a lower dosage when beginning a daily regimen and adjusting as needed. The effect is cumulative, so please allow 2 to 4 weeks of regular use to see your pet’s response to CBD. Individual results may vary.
Should I Use CBD Oil or Chews?
This depends on convenience and your pet’s preference. CBD oil, when administered directly into your dog’s mouth, usually will take effect in a shorter time frame (approximately 20 minutes) and can last for up to seven hours. CBD oil mixed with food may take up to two hours to take effect.
Are There Any Side Effects of Taking CBD?
There are no side effects to our products unless your dog has an allergy to any of our ingredients listed online and on the packaging.
Will CBD Get My Dog High?
CBD is non-psychoactive and contains no THC (the psychoactive component found in cannabis). Thus, it is not possible for your pet to get “high” or “overdose” when using our CBD products. CBD is a safe, lawful, and effective option that offers a myriad of health benefits for your pet.
Are Charli Products Legal?
Yes! – Charli products are legal.
Congress’ passage of the Farm Bill provides that hemp can be grown legally at the federal level. All of our products use hemp-derived CBD, which means that they are legal and can shipped across all 50 states.
Can My Pet Take Charli Products with Their Existing Medication?
CBD should not interfere with any medications your pet is taking. However, every pet is unique, so out of an abundance of caution, we recommend discussing CBD oil administration with your veterinarian if your pet is already taking prescription medications.
What Ingredients Are Used in Charli Products?
Ingredients vary by product. All Charli products are made with organic, non-GMO hemp oil grown in the USA. Depending on which type of product you opt to purchase, you will find that the additional ingredients are specifically formulated to support your pet’s calm, wellness and mobility. All of our products are batch-certified to guarantee purity. Please refer to our ingredients page, products page or packaging for ingredient details.
Can I Give My Pet CBD Daily?

My Pet Has Multiple Conditions. Which Charli Product Should I Purchase?
Charli CBD products not only provide the benefits of CBD, but also include functional ingredients to support your pet’s calm, wellness and mobility. For example, our Calm products line contains organic botanicals and herbs that are known to promote tranquility and relaxation. On the other hand, our Wellness and Mobility products contain different organic and all-natural ingredients that are carefully created to specifically promote long-term health and relief from hip and joint issues.
