CBD oil has gained some serious mainstream attention in the last few years. With the cultural climate becoming more open-minded towards cannabis and its medicinal properties, more and more Americans have been seeking ways to integrate CBD into their daily routines. CBD tinctures, vape oils, capsules, and topical products have been popping up everywhere. People add CBD to their coffee and tea, to their smoothies and favorite recipes. With the general consensus being that CBD offers real support for things like pain, anxiety, trouble sleeping, mood stability and general well-being, it only made sense that the day would come when people would wonder: “Could CBD help my pets too?”
Countless pet CBD products are available on the market today in response to this question. People swear by CBD to support general well-being for their fur babies. Although science hasn’t had the opportunity to do sufficient studies on CBD treatment for pets yet, the list of reasons why people give their pets CBD is long and growing.

Does CBD work for pets?
CBD works on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), supporting the maintenance of homeostasis (or balance) throughout the body. As it turns out, your pet has an endocannabinoid system too! Just like in the human body, a pet’s ECS functions as a series of receptors throughout the brain and body. Endogenous (naturally occurring within the body) cannabinoids bind with ECS receptors creating a communication network. If an imbalance is noticed, this system helps to regulate it and bring the body back to baseline. In turn, supplementing your four-legged friends’ ECS with exogenous (external) cannabinoids, like CBD, is an easy way to support healthy ECS functioning and general well-being.
Here at Illuminent, we love our furry friends. Luckily, we have “Irie,” the office pup to curb our cuddle cravings. Naturally, we want her (and all pets) to be stress free and all smiles. We decided to put that dream into action when we began research and development for our Pet Tincture formula. Hard work paid off and we created, what we believe to be, the absolute best Pet Tincture out there for your four-legged friends. Illuminent CBD Pet Tincture offers 300 mg of high-quality CBD per bottle to help keep your pets living their best lives. We even added glucosamine to the mix for additional joint and muscle support, aiding in healthy and happy aging! With a fan favorite flavor like peanut butter, what’s not to love?
How much Illuminent CBD Pet Tincture should I give my pet?
Illuminent Pet Tincture dosing is based off of weight. The more your pet weighs, the more CBD (s)he will need. Each Illuminent Pet Tincture is shipped with a dosage chart (left) and a serving syringe to ensure exact and consistent dosing. We suggest starting with a low dose, and increasing as needed based on your pet’s results. The dosage chart to the left can be used as an initial guideline. From there you can further customize your pet’s dosage as needed.
We stand by our belief. Illuminent CBD Pet Tincture is the best on the market. We have the testimonials to prove it. Don’t believe us? Take their word for it!
“Willow got fixed about 2 weeks ago. We used the pet tincture every 4-6 hours for her pain. She healed super-fast, within 4-5 days we took the cone off and she was back to her old self. I have had many dogs in my life that have had this surgery and wish I had known about CBD for pets then. She did amazing and still gets it daily!”
“Our Rottweiler, Enzo, has REALLY bad genetic hip issues. He started displaying issues at about 6 months of age – we took him to our vet for x-rays. She said his hips looked REALLY bad and he may need a complete hip replacement, she referred us to an Orthopedic Veterinary Surgeon. He looked at Enzo’s x-rays and told us that he wanted us to start him on CBD and try that until he was fully grown before considering surgery. I was SHOCKED that he mentioned it as his main recommendation and that’s how we found Illuminent. Within weeks of starting CBD – Enzo jumped up on our bed for the first time and his mobility and pain level are SO much better. He is still going to need some surgery but CBD has improved his quality of life in such a huge way.”
“Chopper was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma cancer in March 2017. Surgery wasn’t an option for us due to the placement of the tumor being between two large blood vessels in his tongue. We were told that “comfort care” was our only option. Having to explain to my 10-year-old, who is Chopper’s best friend (and vice versa) what comfort care meant, was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. At that moment I decided comfort care would not be our only option and researched all I could. That’s when I discovered CBD’s benefits… I was able to get choppers tumor to 100% go away. While I did have to experiment with a few different CBD products before discovering the best, Illuminent. I’m so thankful for finding Illuminent! Since starting Chopper on Illuminent CBD Pet Tincture, I’ve noticed more shrinking of his tumor skin. I’ve also noticed less tremors of his legs, (he’s got very bad arthritis in his back legs,) and he’s HAPPY to take his daily dose. I’m sure the peanut butter flavor helps. When I started Chopper on his cancer regimen, I said it was Chopper’s wish to live but it was also mine, too. I had a wish I’d be able to help cure Choppers cancer. Little did I know we’d be able to make that wish come true!”
“Both my 14 year old and 8 year old dogs use it daily for arthritis and anxiety. Without it they have trouble climbing stairs, jumping into and out of the car, etc. With it they are like puppies again! Jumping around easily with no issues! They also are much calmer, most noticeably when we have to leave them home without us. They used to bark and growl and almost bite us when we left and now they’re basically like “Bye guys! See ya later!””
“My dog Ripley is 12 and like all older dogs she started to slow down a bit. I started the Illuminent Pet Tincture about 6 months ago and am happy to see that she has regained her speed and agility again … not to mention that thunder storms don’t have her panting or shaking at all. She and our other dog will run over and sit in front of the counter when I say CBD.. one will take it from the dropper and the other on a treat!”
