Just like I talked about in my review of the HempLucid CBD for Cats here, this kind of alternative medicine can be of great help for improving the health and wellbeing of your dogs as well.
I have written many times on this site, primarily here, about how I have used CBD to bring more mobility and ease to my dog, Summer. She is quite a special girl. I got her through a rescue and she had been through some tough times. They had to perform hip surgery on her, as well as correct a number of internal issues. The good news is, she has a clean bill of health these days, but still has a bit of an ache in her hip.
Using CBD for dogs, like Roxy Pets CBD for Dogs by HempLucid, can be a miracle worker in easing your dog’s pain and anxiety to help them live a better life. Just what I’ve come to expect at HempLucid CBD!
This oil is so easy to administer to your dog, and it tastes delicious (like chicken!) so they don’t even know that they are getting some medicine. With other brands of CBD for dogs, it is more a traditional CBD oil taste (natural, plant-like). With this chicken flavor, even the pickiest eaters among dogs will love to gobble this down.
Just like us, dogs have an endocannabinoid system that regulates a lot of the functions of their body. Having a balance in the endocannabinoid system restores balance throughout the body and mind. It can help to dull the pain receptors that limit their mobility. It can also relieve stress and anxiety in their minds so they are able to rest better. Besides using products like this for my dog’s hips, I also give it to her when I know that I’m going to be out of the house for an expected period of time, and it eases her separation anxiety. It also works well for thunderstorms and that dreaded vacuum cleaner!
There are a number of ways that cannabinoids can improve your dog’s life, such as:
Nothing but the good stuff in this formula!
Let’s see what some satisfied customers have to say in their review of this product on the HempLucid website:

Not only are cannabidiol products beneficial for us humans, but they can also do a great deal of good for our furry family members as well. That’s why I love that HempLucid, one of my favorite CBD brands that I review in full here, launched their own line of CBD products for pets with their Roxy Pets by HempLucid products.
They offer two different varieties – one for dogs, and one for cats which I will review here.
As a pet lover (I have two cats and a dog), I couldn’t be happier that there are products like this that can improve the health and wellbeing of my furry friends. I have spoken at length about the ways that CBD improved my dog’s life, but I hadn’t yet touched on how it has helped one of my cats as well.
While I use it for my dog’s mobility (she has had hip surgery) as well as separation anxiety, I use it for the nerve problems that one of my cats has. It’s hard to explain, but he can be very sensitive to touch. We like to get up in each other’s faces and bring our noses together, and he very slowly edges closer and closer – until the moment our noses touch, he flinches back very quickly. It’s the same when he drinks out of his water bowl. As soon as his nose hits the surface of the water, he flinches.
I have found that after I give him a dose of Roxy Pets CBD for cats, these behaviors go away. I don’t know if it interacts with his receptors or what, but he definitely has a lot less skittishness when it comes to touch. I’ve also used this for the other cat, who had to have many teeth extracted recently. You could tell how swollen and in pain she was, and putting a little bit of this in her wet food made the recovery much easier to bear.
Even if your cats aren’t like mine, there are a number of reasons why you may want to give them cannabidiol Here are a few benefits that it can provide:
Pure and simple formula – it’s CBD with fish oil (which has benefits of its own!):
This can be a delicious and nutritious addition to your cat’s diet – mine absolutely love it! I just mix it into their wet food and they gobble it right up.
While it’s under a different name of Roxy Pet, this is a product line from HempLucid and as such can be found on the official HempLucid CBD website here. Depending on your cat’s size, as well as the severity of their issues, you can purchase it in 100 mg or 300 mg strength.
If you feel like you read about this already in a previous review I wrote, I won’t blame you. This product is pretty similar to the HempLucid CBD Body Cream that I discussed earlier, though the difference is that this one is CBDA instead of CBD.
So what’s the difference and why would I choose one over the other? Take a look below in my full review and see how this CBDA lotion can bring you relief.
As stated above, the difference between this and the other body lotion that HempLucid sells is that this is infused with the CBDA compound. If you want more information, in an earlier post I wrote a detailed breakdown of the difference between CBD and CBDA.
In short – CBDA is a precursor to CBD. To get cannabidiol, you need to heat CBDA in order to produce CBD. In the end, however, they provide much of the same benefits when it comes to relief. In this case, with their body lotion, that relief comes in the form of pain management. You can use this lotion on any area that is aching or sore to get a quick respite from the pain.
I use products like this often as I am a pretty avid visitor of the gym, not to mention I like to go on moderate to long runs around my city. Living in pain and soreness is pretty much a constant in my life due to the stresses I put on my muscles and joints. However, much like applying Icy Hot to sore areas, this lotion can give me quick relief from those aches.
All you need to do is apply it to the affected area, rub it in so it absorbs into the skin, and it will work its way through the epidermal layers to treat the problem at its source (deep in the muscles and joints). This works because cannabis (and all of its compounds like CBD and CBDA) is a natural anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce swelling and irritation.

Along with CBDA, you can find many natural oils that are soothing on the skin. It has a nice citrus smell to it, and I would liken it more to oil than a lotion. Either way, it is very easy to apply and makes my skin feel soft, not to mention the healing properties it brings to muscles and joints. The formula for this lotion contains:
I won’t lie – this product is pretty expensive at around $150, so I am not surprised that there aren’t an abundance of customer reviews for this product on the HempLucid website. However, a customer chimed in with the following praise:
Great product, quick shipping. I love the CBDa body cream and water-soluble CBD solution. Now part of my daily routine.
You won’t find this at your local drugstore next to the other topical pain relievers, but you can find it at the official HempLucid site here.
As I talked about in my review of HempLucid’s CBD Lip Balm, not only is cannabidiol very beneficial for the body and mind when you ingest it, but it can also be of great help when applying it topically to the skin.
This particular body cream product from HempLucid that I review below has been an absolute lifesaver for me. As an avid “workout warrior”, I am often left with aches and pains in my muscles and joints. Rubbing this on the tender areas does the trick every time.
You don’t even have to be a fitness enthusiast like me for this product to be useful. If you have chronic pain, or perhaps are arthritic, it works wonderfully to reduce pain and inflammation so you can live easier.
As they say on the HempLucid site, this body cream is rich in hemp-derived cannabinoids that when applied topically can be “a perfect way to wind down from a brutal workout or hike.” Again, you need not to be big into exercise for this product to be applicable. Anybody that has pain in their joints or has sore muscles, this body butter is exactly what you need.
Each 2-ounce container of this CBD body butter (available in 500 mg or 1000 mg strength) works very well for localized pain and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and clean and does not leave any oily residue. Once applied and absorbed into the skin, it works to penetrate deep through the epidermis to treat the sore areas at their source.
It is pretty much like using an “Icy Hot” or similar product but doesn’t give you that burning or tingly feeling. Rather, it is just like putting on any other kind of skin cream, yet the results are so much better. I especially get aching knees after a workout or a long run, and rubbing this cream in afterward, I can start to feel the effects in about 10 minutes and it provides relief for hours.

Each container of this CBD-infused body butter contains the following – as you can see, it is full of powerful natural ingredients and skin-soothing additives like you will find in other popular skincare products, with the added boost of cannabidiol to fight inflammation:
You can find this CBD Body Cream from HempLucid at their official site here. While you might be accustomed to heading to the local drugstore and grabbing Icy Hot or another similar pain reliever, I can’t say enough about how effective this CBD product has done the job like no other. Whether it be temporary pain from exertion or chronic pain from age or illness, this will do the trick!
Not only is CBD great when you ingest like in an oil tincture, capsule, or edible, but it can also provide tremendous benefits for your skin.
If you are like me and are addicted to lip balm, it’s time to put that Carmex or Burt’s Bees down and reach for this CBD Lip Balm at HempLucid – and I’ll tell you why below!
Like I said above, I am absolutely addicted to lip balm. It is a self-fulfilling thing, you pretty much physiologically get addicted to it. The more that you apply it, the more you have to continue to apply it. While it provides relief immediately, some of the ingredients end up drying out your lips in the long run which makes you need to put it on again. It’s quite a clever business model, but not one that I want to continue to fall victim to.
This CBD lip balm from HempLucid is amazing. After I use it, my lips feel so nourished and smooth, no more cracks and splitting and chapping, yet it doesn’t give me that dryness after a half hour or an hour like I used to get with my old products. There is no need to continue to keep putting it on throughout the day, as pretty much once or twice per day is all I need.
Each tube of this lip balm contains 50 mg of hemp-derived CBD infused straight into the balm to deliver its benefits to the skin. It leaves your lips more moisturized and nourished and smooth to the touch.
You can kiss dry lips goodbye with the HempLucid CBD lip balm. This formula contains ingredients specifically added to hydrate your lips and keep them healthy. Ingredients include natural oils and vitamins such as:

I’m not the only one who has made the change from my old Chapstick and started using this lip balm – take a look at what others have to say on the HempLucid site:
I know you’re probably used to just grabbing something off the shelf at CVS or similar. However, if you want proven relief for those chronically chapped lips, you’ll want to go online to the official HempLucid site and pick up a tube of their lip balm. As someone who has been addicted to lip balms for decades, I can attest that I have finally found the solution!
One of the easiest ways to get your dose of CBD, besides eating a gummy like these from HempLucid, is to take it in capsule form. Are you able to take a regular pain reliever like Tylenol or similar? Then that’s exactly the same as popping one of these soft-gel capsules from HempLucid, full of potent cannabidiol to bring the relief you need for body and mind.
Easy to take, effective, and no after-taste make these a fast, great way to get your dose.
These gel caps contain full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD that offers a convenient way to get a dose that will last you throughout the day. With 30 capsules per bottle, you can pick up one package and be set for the month with these long-lasting softgels that bring you the relief you need.
It is just like taking any other daily vitamin and provides a subtle, yet effective boost to your endocannabinoid system that helps to fight chronic pain, muscle and joint soreness, stress and anxiety, as well as help you sleep better at night. I take one of these first thing in the morning, especially when I’m sore after having exercised pretty hard the day before, and it makes me more limber and free of pain. They are also great at night as they put me in a very relaxing mood and I drift off to sleep so much easier.
These gel caps come in a 30-count bottle, available in the following strengths (prices vary depending on the strength):
I’m not the only one who sings the praises of these capsules – take a look at what others have to say on the HempLucid site:
