If your dog likes peanut butter (and nearly all of them do,) this recipe makes a perfect CBD treat.
As a bonus, it requires no cooking at all, which protects those beneficial and delicate CBD molecules from any degradation. It’s simple, easy, and a winner for every pup or pooch.
It’s best to start with high quality ingredients, so if you have a CBD supplier that you already trust for yourself, look on their website to see what other products they offer. As long as they’re using high MCT fractionated coconut oil as the base of their oil or tinctures, you’re good to go. This type of coconut oil is easily absorbed into the gut and is the healthiest for your animal’s digestive system.
Plus, you have the added benefit of knowing that the percentage of CBD per milliliter is correct since it will be listed on the label. This makes dosing your treats easy to measure out.
After you calculate out the proper dose of CBD (1 mg per 10 lbs of weight to start, then increase the dosage as you see fit), simply add that into the coconut oil and you’re ready to go!
- 1 Cup Natural Style Peanut Butter
- 1 Cup High MCT fractionated coconut oil (This measurement can vary. Use 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per 10 pounds dog’s body weight, or 1 tablespoon per 30 pounds)
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 12 doses of CBD (Dependent on weight/need of dog)
- Level: Easy
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Refrigerator Time: 2 hrs
- Yields: 12 Treats
Follow the steps below to make the best peanut butter CBD treats for your furry friend.
Measure your correct dose of CBD tincture into the coconut oil and melt in a medium saucepan over low heat. Do not let the oil begin to sizzle or boil or you risk damaging the delicate CBD molecules.
Add in cinnamon, peanut butter, and stir until the mixture is smooth. It’s important to mix well so that the CBD dosage is spread evenly throughout all 12 treats. This gives the most benefit to your dog and will help you determine effective dosages in the future. Your mixture should be thick but still pourable.
Pour your treat mixture into a silicone tray (You can buy molded ones if you want them in shapes, but ice cube trays work just as well.)
Refrigerate or freeze until your treats are set and relatively firm. Then simply pop them out and serve them to your dog at leisure. Store the rest in an airtight container in your refrigerator.
CBD can make an enormous impact on your pet’s health and wellbeing.
Making your own treats means ensuring only quality CBD and other ingredients for your dog, and in the most beneficial amounts. Your pup will appreciate these delicious treats and may find themselves more comfortable as they wag their tail in approval.
