This CBD oil dog treat recipe is ideal for relieving pain and helping to calm your dog. It’s simple to make and uses nutritious ingredients along with CBD oil to save you both time and money.
CBD oil is all the rage and the benefits I’ve seen not only in the research but in my own body are mind-blowing! This recipe came about because my son loves his Grandpa’s dog. She’s getting older and having some mobility issues so I wanted to make her some nutritious treats with pet CBD oil, to see if they would help her further enjoy play time with a toddler.
Because CBD oil has helped my own anxiety so much, I thought this CBD oil dog treats recipe would be perfect for dogs that get anxious when their owner leaves or suffer noise phobias.
Will CBD oil calm my dog?
CBD may help to improve both depression and anxiety through its interactions with serotonin receptors in the brain of humans. Research shows that CBD can reduce both mental and physical symptoms of anxiety.
That said, it’s quite possibly calming and helpful in dogs with noise phobias and separation anxiety.
Which CBD oil is best for dogs?
Blue Ridge Hemp Co.: This smaller company is mission based and even offers financial assistance to those in need. They formulated CBD oil specifically for pets and more and are very reasonably priced.
I chose to use Medterra CBD oil (enter code RNL to save 10%) as it’s what I had on hand. I figured if puppy responded well, we’d move to Blueridge for the next batch.

CBD Oil Dog Treat Recipe
- 2/3 cup apple sauce
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3 cups high quality flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- CBD Oil amount varies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs, CBD and melted coconut oil in a bowl.
Add in baking soda and flour slowly while mixing. Mix until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.
Roll out dough and use a cookie cutter or you can roll into small balls (like you would regular cookies.)
Drop on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
If your dog needs gluten free due to GI upset, etc. this recipe will work just fine with an all purpose gluten free flour. I recommend rolling into balls the first time to get a feel for the consistency.
CBD oil amount will vary based on how much you want each treat to contain, so you will have to do some measuring. If this is the first time you're giving your dog CBD, aim for about 2 drops per treat, or about 4 droppers full and slowly go up from there.
I recommend using Blueridge CBD oil, as it's formulated specifically for pets.
I love this parchment paper as it's non-toxic and nothing sticks. I use it for everything!
