1. What is the best way to give my pet CBD?

CBD treats are one of the most popular, easiest ways people can give their pets hemp help.

With more research expanding our knowledge of CBD, cannabinoids, hemp, and the endocannabinoid system, it makes sense why we choose to share with furry friends.

From pain to stress to well-being, there are a plethora of reasons we look to hemp.

Like people, all pets are different and have personal preferences on how to take their CBD, whether it’s oil or treats. Since we love them so much, we want to make sure they get the best quality CBD - and enjoy it.

There are countless hemp companies to choose from in this growing industry, specifically when it comes to CBD treats for dogs. Many also have countless ingredients… some that are questionable to say the least.

3. Bailey Breakdown: What are Bailey’s CBD Soft Chews?

Bailey’s soft chews are cold-pressed and never baked. This means they keep the abundance of naturally-occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other therapeutic properties of hemp. We use USDA organic, single-sourced full-spectrum hemp extract from a small family hemp farm in Colorado who hand harvests their hemp with love.

Our soft chews are made with love too! All are available in a small/medium breed variation (3mg CBD per chew) and a large breed/extra strength variation (6mg CBD per chew).

Easy to chew, we currently have three options focused on wellness, calmness, and mobility. Each has a favorite wellness blend that works with the CBD and other plant compounds for maximum effect.

4. Wellness: Omega Hemp CBD Soft Chews

Honored with the prestigious 2019 California Cannabis Awards' CBD Product Of The Year award, and the 2023 Pet Innovation Awards Overall Dog Health Product Of The Year award, our Bacon-Flavored Omega Hemp Soft Chews are designed not only to bring delight to your pup's taste buds but also to significantly contribute to their overall health and wellness.

These full-spectrum CBD treats are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are renowned for promoting heart health, boosting the immune system, and reducing inflammation.

This perfect blend of beneficial compounds offers a holistic approach to your dog's well-being, supporting everything from their skin and coat condition to joint health and mood stability.

Trust in our award-winning formula and let our Omega Hemp CBD Soft Chews enhance your pet's quality of life.

4.1 What are Omega Fatty Acids?

Omega fatty acids, specifically Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9, are essential dietary fats recognized as potent contributors to balanced nutrition and overall well-being.

Their significance transcends species lines, offering myriad health benefits to both humans and pets. Extensive scientific research and a plethora of available information online corroborate the numerous benefits of these Omega fatty acids.

These benefits span across various health dimensions, from enhancing brain function and promoting heart health to maintaining skin and coat condition and strengthening the immune system.

Such diverse benefits have solidified their place in our best-selling product line. However, one crucial aspect of Omega fatty acids is their balance - specifically the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3.

Many health professionals and researchers believe that an imbalanced Omega 6:3 ratio may be linked to chronic inflammation. Prolonged inflammation is associated with several health problems, contributing to the development and exacerbation of numerous health conditions.

Thus, maintaining a balanced intake of Omega fatty acids is essential for optimal health benefits.

4.2 Flaxseed Oil for Dogs

Flaxseed oil, derived from the nutritiously rich seeds of the flax plant, serves as a potent source of Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 fatty acids for our canine companions.

Celebrated for its anti-inflammatory properties, flaxseed oil is often employed to aid dogs suffering from conditions that cause inflammation such as arthritis.

Moreover, flaxseed oil is a rich reservoir of lignans - powerful plant compounds with potential antioxidant and estrogenic activities. These lignans contribute significantly to cardiovascular health and may offer protective effects against osteoporosis.

When extracted, flaxseed oil presents a full-spectrum profile of fatty acids, encapsulating a host of beneficial compounds. Incorporating flaxseed oil into your dog's diet provides them with essential fatty acids that support overall wellness and help to maintain a shiny coat and healthy skin.

4.3 The Power of Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Dogs

Omega 3 is one of the most vital supplements our mammalian body requires for various systemic functions. One main reason why veterinarians and doctors alike recommend omega-3 fatty acids is their anti-inflammatory properties. 

There are three types of omega-3s:

  1. alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
  2. eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  3. docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

Our dogs’ bodies convert ALA into EPA and DHA.

Both omega 3 & 6 fatty acids support the body’s natural defenses, digestive health, and cell growth. Since our pet’s body cannot naturally produce most omega 3 & 6s on their own, a proper balance of omega 3 & 6s is important for their long-term health.

4.4 Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Involved in cell membrane structure and cellular function, omega-6s are essential for reproduction, growth, immune function, and skin & coat health.

The omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid for dogs. It does many things, including strengthening & hydrating the skin barrier. It contributes to preventing water loss and the loss of other body molecules, and it prevents microbes, allergens, & other similar substances from entering through the skin.

Linoleic acid also plays a role in heart health, insulin, and blood pressure.

Arachidonic acid is an important omega-6 fatty acid that dogs can produce in their bodies from precursors (cats, however, cannot produce it on their own). It plays a central part in inflammation, wound healing, and muscle growth.

4.5 Omega 9 Fatty Acids

Unlike many omega 3 & 6s, our pet’s body can turn other fats into omega-9s. Although it’s considered a non-essential fatty acid, research shows omega-9 helps aid immune function, support cholesterol, and eliminate artery plaque.

5. Calm: Calming CBD Yummies!

Does your doggo deal with separation anxiety, fear of loud noises, nearby fireworks, or general stress? True to their name, these calming peanut butter and banana chews are nothing short of yummy!

Many use Bailey’s Calming CBD Yummies! for traveling stress relief, separation anxiety support, hyperactive pups, decreasing aggression, helping pups sleep through the night, and overall calming support.

These 100% vegan CBD dog chews contain holistic and human-grade active ingredients:

  • tryptophan
  • valerian root
  • chamomile
  • passionflower

They act in combination with CBD to help promote relaxation in even the most stressed and anxious pups.

5.1 Tryptophan

An essential amino acid obtained nutritionally, tryptophan is involved with creating the hormone serotonin. Elevated serotonin blood levels have shown to reduce behavioral disorders, like separation & travel anxiety.

Studies reveal serotonin supports sleep, pain management, nitrogen balance, wound healing, and bone health. They also found tryptophan helps other essential amino acids become more accessible, potentially helping overall mood and stress hormone production.

Along with dietary control of protein intake, many use tryptophan for dogs to help reduce dominance aggression and territorial aggression in dogs. 

People and dogs alike often turn to tryptophan for insomnia, depression, and stress. It naturally occurs in certain foods and is taken in supplement form. 

5.2 Valerian Root (Valeriana Officinalis)

Valerian root is an herbal supplement traditionally used by many people for sedation, insomnia relief, and reducing anxiety & stress. Some even use it to support seizure conditions.

Valerian increases the amount of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA prevents unwanted nervous system activity, and low GABA levels are linked to stress, anxiety, and poor sleep. Studies show it contains other antioxidants and acids that may have sleep-inducing and muscle-relaxing effects.

Many of these compounds may also limit excess brain activity in the amygdala, which processes fear & strong emotional stress responses.

A small percentage of consumers are stimulated by valerian. Like with any herb or supplement, it’s important to always consult a licensed veterinarian before trying anything new. 

5.3 Chamomile (Matricaria Chamomilla)

Chamomile is an herb in the daisy flower family, commonly used in humans & dogs (in smaller amounts) for mild sedation, anxiety support, anti-inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders, and muscle relaxation.

It contains terpenes and flavonoids found in hemp, including bisabolol. Bisabolol is regularly explored for potential anti-fungal, antibacterial, antioxidant, and pain-relieving properties.

5.4 Passion Flower (Passiflora Incarnata)

A floral herb enjoyed for its flavor, passionflower is a popular choice when it comes to anxiety and sleeplessness.

Biochemical studies show passionflower contains natural flavonoids that strengthen the effectiveness of GABA brain receptors, which we know aids relaxation and stress relief.

Our gut creates most of the body’s serotonin, explaining why some experience stomachaches or gastrointestinal issues when anxious.

Passionflower raises levels of serotonin and dopamine, potentially increasing mood & temperament - and soothing the tummy. It’s been used for stomach ulcer alleviation, which can cause or be caused by stress.

6. Mobility: Hip & Joint CBD Soft Chews

Joint pain? Moving slow? We got your pup’s back (literally)!

Made with glucosamine, MSM, green lipped mussel, and naturally-occurring CBD, these tasty chicken-flavored soft chews are intended to help put a pep in your pup’s step.

Some reasons people choose Bailey’s Hip & Joint CBD Soft Chews:

  • Mobility support
  • Graceful aging for pets
  • Comfort for arthritic pets
  • Support for dogs predisposed to hip and joint conditions due to breed

Pets struggle with arthritis, chronic pain, and mobility like humans. Many dog breeds are highly predisposed to hip dysplasia, causing pain, joint wear, and joint degeneration.

These CBD dog chews are packed with ingredients to support your dog’s hip & joint function.

6.1 The Benefits of Glucosamine for Dogs

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring compound within the body that aids in the formation of crucial components such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and the dense fluid that envelopes joints. These elements play a critical role in ensuring the smooth and pain-free movement of joints.

In conditions like osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia, there is a progressive breakdown of cartilage, leading to painful joint friction, stiffness, and discomfort. Here, glucosamine steps in as a potential savior, helping to alleviate these symptoms and slow down the degenerative process. It encourages proactive wellness, with a particular emphasis on enhancing mobility health.

Interestingly, chicken feet are a rich source of glucosamine, which makes our decision to use a delicious chicken flavor a logical and beneficial choice! By incorporating glucosamine into our treats, we're not just making them tastier, but also adding an ingredient that may greatly improve your dog's quality of life.

6.2 The Power of MSM for Pet Wellness

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a sulfur-rich compound prevalent in plants, animals, and humans alike. As an antioxidant, it plays a crucial role in flushing out bodily waste and toxins, thereby improving overall cell function. Interestingly, MSM also amplifies the effectiveness of other vitamins and supplements due to its potent detoxifying properties.

When incorporated in supplement form, MSM is lauded for its ability to alleviate pain and inflammation. By doing so, it sets the stage for less disease susceptibility and healthier bodily function.

We've meticulously included this plant-derived ingredient in our treats to alleviate pressure in our pet's cells and foster better nutrient absorption. Why does this matter? Well, efficient nutrient absorption is key to fortifying the body's natural defense mechanisms, hence ensuring optimal health and wellness for your beloved pet.

6.3 The Remarkable Benefits of Green Lipped Mussel for Dogs

Often considered nature's secret treasure, Green Lipped Mussels serve as a natural filter in seawater, capturing an array of essential nutrients. Notably, these mussels are a rich source of ETA-loaded omega 3 fatty acids.

Furthermore, they boast a wealth of amino acids that energize and bolster the immune system, enzymes fostering gastrointestinal health, antioxidants promoting heart health, and chondroitin known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Additionally, they supply hyaluronic acid instrumental in maintaining joint health. But that's not all! Green Lipped Mussels are bursting with vital vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, manganese, zinc, iodine, copper, and more.

These compounds play a significant role in supporting thyroid health, which directly influences joint and mobility function. In essence, incorporating Green Lipped Mussels into your pet's diet could substantially enhance their overall health and well-being.

7. How does CBD work with omegas and other compounds?

CBD is already a popular choice for anti-inflammation, working to promote homeostasis (inner balance at a systemic level) within the body by engaging with our endocannabinoid system.

The Entourage Effect is when compounds interact, enhance, and amplify each other’s individual effects. This synergy is well-known with hemp. Cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, and CBG work together with terpenes, flavonoids, and more to make the other stronger.

Even though this applies to compounds within one plant, it also applies to those found in different sources. Hemp compounds can meet compounds like omega fatty acids, glucosamine, MSM, and green lipped mussel - and work together to be their best selves.

We combined the synergy of CBD-rich hemp with quality compounds to create an even more powerful synergy for our CBD dog treats. Mixed with all with your dog’s favorite flavors!

Whether looking for help with your dog’s overall health, stress, mobility, or pain, Bailey’s CBD has plenty of CBD soft chews to choose from.

All are part of our commitment to a balanced, happy, and healthy pet lifestyle.
