You Asked, We Answered
WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF HEMP OIL FOR MY PET?
We can only rely on anecdotal results because Health Canada has only just issued the green light to conduct regulated studies on the effects of Cannabis in animals. Many pet owners have reported benefits of hemp for dogs and cats, including treatment of pain, arthritis, seizures, anxiety, lack of appetite, cognitive dysfunction and more. Because of the lack of formal scientific evidence, Canadian veterinarians cannot legally prescribe Cannabis products. However, many are looking forward to the day that they can!

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
PawsitiveReleaf should not cause your dog to experience any side effects. Some people note that their dog seems more content, has a better appetite, or just seems to be moving around with more enthusiasm. Generally, our side effects are good ones! Some dogs may have a slightly loose stool when they first take PawsitiveReleaf due to the coconut oil, but that should subside in a few days. It's perfectly normal.
HOW MANY TREATS SHOULD I GIVE TO MY DOG?
Our directions for use are on the package, and are based on weight. Often 1 treat per day is enough for a small to medium size dog. A medium size dog can enjoy 1-2 per day. Larger dogs can have 2-3 per day, or more if you have a giant in the family!
WHAT MAKES PAWSITIVERELEAF DIFFERENT?
PawsitiveReleaf treats are hand mixed and baked with high quality, human-grade ingredients. Quality is paramount, and we choose our ingredients carefully. There is nothing added that we wouldn't eat ourselves (however we don't recommend them for human consumption).
WILL PAWSITIVERELEAF GET MY DOG HIGH?
Absolutely not. PawsitiveReleaf contains Industrial Hemp Oil from a reputable supplier. Many people are, understandably, concerned a Cannabis product will get their dog high. The Cannabis plant includes both marijuana strains and hemp strains. The marijuana plant contains the psychoactive ingredient THC (delta9 tetrahydrocannabinol). Hemp strains contain a negligible concentration of THC. THC is highly toxic to dogs. Our treats contain a full spectrum hemp oil that is lab tested by a third party, and contains less than .3% THC. If you are considering a Cannabis product for your pet, we strongly suggest you request a Certificate of Analysis of their product to confirm the content of the oil used is less than .3% THC.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP IN OIL FORM VS. HEMP IN TREAT FORM?
Our treats makes it easy for you to ensure a consistent daily quantity of hemp. Hemp oil in its pure form is not a taste most dogs enjoy. When put on food, some dogs will no longer eat their dinner. Trying to get oil directly into your dogs mouth like medicine also tends to not be well received. Our treats however, are delicious, and your pup will look forward to it every day! Seriously, we've never had a dog refuse to eat one!
WHERE CAN I GET PAWSITIVERELEAF?
Our treats are conveniently available for delivery to your door by ordering here. You can also check out our retailers page here. If you have a local favourite pet store where you would like to be able to purchase PawsitiveReleaf, please suggest they contact us about becoming a retailer.
WHY DO THE TREATS VARY IN SIZE?
PawsitiveReleaf treats are handmade. They will vary slightly in size, thickness and consistency because they are not being pressed by machine. We hand roll the dough. PawsitiveReleaf treats are inspected three times prior to packaging. If for any reason you are unhappy with our product, please contact us by email and we will ensure your concerns are resolved to your satisfaction.
