When it comes to alternative treatments for your Bully breeds, CBD has been making a big appearance lately among owners and veterinarians. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD is a compound found in cannabis and hemp plants.
Studies have shown these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors located in the central and peripheral nervous systems, which help maintain balance in the body and keep it in a normal healthy state.
This can have a myriad of health benefits for both humans and pets. CBD has been associated with reductions in anxiety, help with sleep, relief from arthritic pain, and studies are being conducted on it’s effectiveness in reducing epileptic seizures in treatment resistant dogs.
The Top 7 CBD Oil Brands for Bully Breed Dogs
I have spent some countless hours searching the internet trying to find out all I can about CBD oil for my Staffy Ruby. At first glance it can be overwhelming to choose from everything available out there. What kind do I choose? What are the differences in these oils? What dosage will my dog need? How much will this cost each month?
All questions I had, and lucky for you I have compiled all my findings into what I feel are the best brands out there right now. I based the ratings on several competing factors, and it was not easy to choose because these are all top notch products.
All of the products below have passed a few sniff tests right off the jump. They are all brands that have verified 3rd party testing done on their products, all the brands have lab test results available on their website, and all use the CO2 extraction method, which put simply means, there are no solvents used to extract the CBD from the cannabis and hemp plants.
The rankings below are weighed on extraction type, carrier oil type, overall selection, pricing, and refund policies. Further explanation on extraction and carrier oils at the bottom of the post.

There is a lot of research to be done still in the area of medicinal CBD as to the health benefits and various uses. Anecdotal evidence seems to always point towards it being a great alternative medicine, but it is always good to consult with your vet on the various options available for treatments of your pets ailments.
Extraction types refer to the 3 different kinds of CBD oil you can create. There is the Full spectrum CBD product contains all the parts of the plant including essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids, such as cannabinol. This is believed to be the best type of CBD as these compounds help in the effectiveness of the CBD. It may also contain trace amounts of THC, but not enough to produce any “high” effects as the amount is so low <0.03%.
Broad spectrum CBD has some, but not all of the plant compounds removed, usually the THC, and can be a little less effective when used compared to Full spectrum. This may require larger doses to reach the same effects.
CBD Isolate is just pure CBD with none of the compounds of the plant remaining. This type of CBD will require a larger dosage, and may still not have the same effect, so I have left all CBD isolate products off my list.
Carrier oils are what is diluted with CBD to deliver it to your dogs system. There are many different kinds, but it is believe that Hemp Oil, or Hemp seed oil are best for absorption, where as MCT oil helps in the preservation of the CBD, but can upset some dogs stomachs.
