King Kanine CBD Review [Personal Experience]
CBD has been sweeping the world in recent years, with all manner of different conditions being treated by CBD. However, despite more people than ever before using CBD, there is one thing that is still rather unheard of in the western world – giving CBD to your pets.
CBD is just as effective when given to dogs and cats as it is with humans, albeit in a significantly reduced dose. However, if this is the case, why are there not more retailers offering CBD products for animals?
King Kanine is, thankfully, one such brand that is trying to pave the way forward for normalizing CBD treatment of animals, so let’s take a look at their different products and find out whether or not they are worth buying.
Who Are King Kanine CBD?
King Kanine’s entire aesthetic, as well as their general business choices, is focused around their love of pets. With a particular focus on dogs, the idea of kindness and consideration for pets everywhere is abundantly clear on their website. They even have a gigantic English Boxer saying “Woof Woof” to you when you first join!
King Kanine is a member of the ASPCA, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; as a business ambassador, their products are checked and tested to ensure they are safe for animals. All of their products are derived from industrial hemp only grown within the USA, extracted using the standard method of supercritical CO2 extraction.
King Kanine is actually quite a recent company, only opening a few years ago, but they have since risen high as the USA’s number 1 seller of pet CBD products. Just like with many other serious CBD retailers, they have a section of their website dedicated to blog posts about CBD and its usefulness. Only with King Kanine, it is fittingly focused around pets, including humorous articles about the difference between hair and fur, or simply just about the use of CBD to treat a dog’s arthritis.
As might be expected from any reputable CBD retailer, all of King Kanine’s lab results are available for view on their website, immediately downloadable as PDFs, and their full contents and microbial readings available for view at any time.
The interesting thing about King Kanine’s different array of CBD products is that they aren’t just focused on the regular mainstays like CBD oil and CBD gummies. Instead, there is a continuous focus on pet-related items, such as their section on Pet Grooming. Which contains natural CBD shampoo, as well as features and articles on how to include CBD as part of your pet’s diet.
Let’s take a look at a few of their products and determine their value, as well as their suitability for your wonderful pets.
King Kanine CBD Oil Products
When considering whether or not to give your pets some CBD, it is important to remember that, as smaller animals, they weigh far less than any human, so they are going to require a much lower dosage of CBD, as well as a few ingredient changes.
This is why King Kanine only offers low-dosage CBD oils, allowing you to choose between the following options:
- 75mg, costing $49.99
- 150mg, costing $59.99
- 300mg, costing $99.99
Each of the three different CBD oils comes prepared with an oral syringe, similar to the type you would find at your vet’s, so as to make oral application easy for your canine friend.
They also provide a helpful guide for which product you should choose depending on the weight of your dog, meaning that the 300mg version should be used for a large pet that weighs over 50lbs.
One especially interesting quality about their CBD oil is that they do not contain any kind of naturally added terpenes for flavor, or any kind of essential oils, due to the fact that many animals struggle to digest them. However, perhaps even stranger is their choice of oil used in this product – instead of the regular coconut or hemp oil, they have used antarctic krill oil!
This means it is an oil derived from Antarctic Krill, a tiny shrimp that is frequently eaten as a primary nutrient for whales. There is no actual information or explanation for this change, so it is either a question of cost or that there must be some kind of benefit to using only Antarctic Krill oil rather than the conventional standards.
Maybe dogs like it more?
Regardless of their oil choices, King Kanine’s CBD oil products are well reviewed and considered incredibly useful as a way to get your dog to imbibe CBD oil. You merely need to give it to your dogs in the same manner as other liquid hormones or drugs you get from the vet – by opening up their mouths and squirting the applicator inside.
Many dogs aren’t exactly a fan of this, of course, and neither are their owners. For those that don’t like the idea of injecting a substance into their dog’s mouths, there are different methods of imbibing that are provided by King Kanine.
King Kanine Topical Treatments
For those that would prefer to apply CBD to their pet using their hands, King Kanine offers two different products: King Kalm Balm and King Kalm Soothe For Pets.
Their King Kalm Balm, costing $16.99, contains a pretty standard ingredient list of different moisturizing topical substances, including; beeswax, coconut oil, and Manuka honey. This is designed to be applied to any area of dryness or inflammation on their skin, or on areas of inflammation as a result of arthritis. However, one other important use is the ability to moisturize and protect dogs’ noses and paws.
It might seem strange to non-dog owners, but dog noses are designed to be wet, and their paws are designed to be smooth and dry. Adverse weather, such as unusually dry heat or really horrible cold, can cause their noses and paws to dry out and become chapped.
By coating their noses and paws with this topical treatment, not only are you able to treat your dog with CBD, but you are also able to both reduce swelling and inflammation and increase the rate of the skin’s healing.
By far the most essential quality of this balm is the fact that each and every ingredient is entirely consumable by dogs. This is vital, as dogs have a silly tendency to lick off anything you put on their noses or paws. This can sometimes actually improve the effectiveness of balms like this, as licking it actually pushes it further into the infected area.
By making all the ingredients edible, it ensures that they don’t harm themselves while their medicine is working, something that further demonstrates King Kanine’s attention to detail and care for animals.
They also offer a King Kalm Soothe For Pets, costing $27.99, which is a spray designed to help treat pain, itching, and inflammation. This is much more focused on skin abrasions and irritations, rather than paws and noses. Once again, all of the ingredients are edible. However, they also contain antihistamines and natural mosquito repellent ingredients like tea tree oil. This means your dog probably won’t try to lick or off while it is taking effect.
King Kanine Crunch Products
Finally, King Kanine offers one more product for pets, though it doesn’t actually contain any CBD. Their King Kalm Crunch products, available in Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry or Honey Oats, are labeled as being naturally calming, while also being rich in vitamins, Omega-3, and antioxidants.
It is rather strange that they offer this, considering that they don’t actually have any CBD within them, instead just being made from flour, oats and other simple flavorings like turmeric and honey. However, it is nice to be able to buy some luxury treats for your pet, even if the flavors seem like they belong more in a human’s diet than a dog’s.
Final Thoughts on King Kanine
King Kanine is a brand that is entirely focused on the welfare of man’s best friend. Their entire design, all their products, and even their production process are all tailored towards making sure all of their products are 100% safe and enjoyable for your furry friend.
They offer not only the standard CBD oil, but also different applications for CBD. As well as, a myriad of grooming products that may help to not only calm your canine friend but also keep them clean and healthy.
Even though the idea of medicating our dogs is still a somewhat alien concept to most people, it is great to see a company so upfront and forthright about their love for their doggie friends. Each and every one of their products has been created with care and an attention to detail that demonstrates that they not only love dogs but want to help as many different dogs as possible.
If your dog has been suffering from any condition that might be helped by treating them with CBD, such as; anxiety, sleeplessness or even epilepsy, then consider giving King Kanine a try and see if it can help improve your pet’s life. If not, at least they might enjoy the Honey & Oat flavored treats.
