Looking to get your pet started on a CBD regimen but can’t find a treat that aligns with what you need in either dosage or ingredients? While using a high quality pre-made CBD pet treat is the easiest path, sometimes our pets have specific dietary needs that don’t always align with what you can find on the shelf. Our DIY pet CBD treat recipe will guide you in creating your very own for that special four legged friend. If you need help determining the optimal dosage for your pet before getting started, we have an easy to use calculator to get you started.
Important Considerations for DIY CBD Pet Treats
The biggest initial consideration is no bake versus baked treats. If you do go with a baked recipe it is important that the ingredients never reach higher than 330 degrees Fahrenheit as that is when the CBD will begin to break down. It’s more advantageous to use a no bake recipe if at possible, but if not, pay particular attention to oven temperatures to ensure a high quality end product. If you do end up baking, a lower temperature for a longer period of time is far more beneficial and will help preserve the CBD.
Secondly, it’s all about the ingredients. I like ones that not only taste great, but also have additional health and wellness benefits. Pumpkin is a great example. It can help promote digestive health, ease an upset stomach, and provides a great amount of fiber. Coconut oil is another example. It is packed full of omega fats that will help promote a shiny skin and has benefits for a healthy brain and stomach. By creating your own DIY CBD treats you have an opportunity to load them up with healthy natural ingredients that will give them a health boost even beyond the big advantages that come with CBD.
No Bake Peanut Butter DIY CBD Dog Treats Recipe
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- Broad Spectrum Pet CBD Tincture (Use our calculator to determine how much to add to the mix)
Preheat the peanut butter and coconut oil in a microwavable bowl for 45 seconds to soften and melt. Next add in the cinnamon if desired and the quantity of CBD to meet your dosage goal for each treat. Whisk steadily until the mixture has an even consistency.
Next carefully fill your silicone mold with the mix but be careful not to overfill. Once your mold is full of the DIY CBD treat mixture move it to your freezer for 30 minutes or until completely hardened. Once they are completely frozen you can move them to a freezer bag for easier storage.
No Bake Pumpkin & Peanut Butter CBD Dog Treats Recipe
- 1 cup of organic pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 3 cups of rolled oats
- Broad Spectrum Pet CBD Tincture
In a non stick bowl combine the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and milk and mix thoroughly at low to medium speed until well mixed. Once those are well combined begin to gradually add the oats until you have added 2 1/2 cups and all ingredients are consistently combined.
Take a small scoop and create rounded balls using all of the mixture. Once complete take the CBD treat balls and roll them in the remaining oats. Apply gentle pressure for the oats to stick to the outside of the treats well.
Lastly, place the completed DIY CBD pet treats in the refrigerator for around 1 hour or until firm. These will keep best if kept refrigerated and with how much your pet will surely love them, they won’t be around too long.
