How Populum Zen Pets CBD Chews Eased Pain & Anxiety In Our Rescue Dogs

Populum Zen Pets Hemp CBD Chews are a tasty and convenient way to give CBD extract to your pets.

The Zen Pets line from Populum includes both a hemp CBD oil and these salmon and apple CBD treats. This review covers just the CBD dog and cat treats. Both the CBD oil and the treats are available in a special bundle.

The treats arrived in a very nice shipping box via USPS mail. The chews come in a resealable package that any dog or cat will instantly recognize as having special treats just for them.

The ingredient list is impressive in its quality. Populum’s Zen Pets Hemp CBD Chews feature a named protein source — in this case wild Alaskan salmon — as the first ingredient. Other quality ingredients include apples and lentils. We were impressed by the care that went into formulating these treats.

Even more than the ingredients themselves, we were impressed by how much our pets loved these chews. Our reviewer has multiple rescue dogs, each with unique health needs, and her beloved pets loved the treats and felt better after eating them.

Great tasting, high-quality CBD for humans and pets

Populum sources their hemp from domestic hemp farms in Colorado. Every product ships with third-party lab test results right in the box. Their products are all made in the U.S. from top-quality ingredients, with the highest standards of production. We’ve consistently been impressed with Populum’s transparency, not to mention the great flavor of their CBD oil. They bring that same care to their Zen Pets line.

For dogs, the suggested dose is roughly .2 mg per pound, which puts a dose at 5 mg for a 25 pound dog. Populum suggests one to two treats per dog under 25 pounds. Our reviewer found that suggestion to be a little strong for her small dogs. When in doubt, start with just one treat. However, if you have an especially anxious small dog, two treats would definitely chill them out! There is some variation in the size of the treats, and the lab results showed some to be slightly stronger than advertised. As long as you aren’t bothered by the imprecise dosing, Zen Pets Hemp CBD Chews are high quality and very effective.

Our reviewer has multiple rescued small dogs adopted small animal rescue organizations. Her dogs have a variety of issues and conditions. Her small, anxious chihuahua usually hates his visit to the groomer. One treat was enough to help him feel more relaxed. An elderly terrier with joint issues and fatty lipoma, given two treats, ignored a sudden freeze and simply snored the day away. And a shih tzu with a bad back was so eager for her treats that she tried to take fingers along with her dose. Then she laid out flat on her back and snored like a train for hours of healing sleep.
