Can You Mix Our Calming Oil With Your Dog’s Food?

Absolutely you can:

Calm Pets oils are designed to be ingested, and mixing them with your pet’s food can be a great way to cover the flavor of the oil which some dogs might not like.

Alternatively, you can also add a few drops of our oil to a pet treat..

Just remember:

Our oils will need to be digested before it starts taking effect.

How Our Oils Ingested Works in Your Pet’s Body

Dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system just like humans.

This system is made up of 2 cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) and endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-AG.

Cannabinoid receptors can be found all around the body, including throughout the GI tract.

Now, Calm Pets Oil doesn’t actually bind to these receptors as anandamide or 2-AG do.

Instead, it activates other molecular pathways which end up stimulating the endocannabinoid system indirectly.

When you give your dog Calm Pets Oil, the oil is broken down and its compounds start to be absorbed in the stomach and intestines.

From there, it can activate receptors throughout the GI tract, as well as enter the bloodstream and be transported to other parts of the body.

Now, any oil taken by itself will obviously be easier for the body to break down than an oil taken together with food.

Oils taken on an empty stomach will also be broken down sooner than those taken after food.

In general, the effects of ingested Calm Pets Oil tend to have a slower release than Calm Pets Oil oil taken sublingually (under the tongue).

Oils administered sublingually can be absorbed directly via the mucous membranes under the tongue and can start taking effect within 15-20 minutes.
