CBDfx CBD Pet Products Review 2024: Our Expert’s Opinion

Our Final Verdict

We give CBDfx pet food a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.

*Use Code CHILL

CBDfx was started in 2014 in the San Fernando Valley in California. They are one of the largest private CBD companies and offer organic, pesticide-free CBD products for humans and pets. The CBD they use is extracted from the hemp plant by CO2 extraction, meaning it is exceptionally free of contaminants introduced in older extraction processes. For total transparency, each product is tagged with a QR code linking back to a lab report detailing exactly what is inside the container or bottle. CBDfx offers a high-quality, well-packaged set of products for pets. Customers pay a small premium for their selection and formulation expertise. Still, many consumers may find the wide selection of options and peace of mind associated with a transparent, large company worth the added cost.

    Who makes CBDfx dog products, and where are they produced?

    Which Types of Dogs are CBDfx products Best Suited For?

    CBDfx makes several types of products for dogs. Dogs with joint pain, anxiety, or sore and dry paws may benefit from their products. CBD products are available in balms, tinctures (liquid), or treats with specific dosing for pain and anxiety.

    Products are available at dosing levels suitable for large and small dogs of any breed.

    Primary Ingredients (Good & Bad)

    Hemp extracts are relatively new products on the legal market in the United States, and their legal status is still a matter of some contention in different states and parts of Federal law.

    That said, research shows more and more promise for many hemp extracts, including cannabinoids or CBD. While preliminary, research indicates that CBD can help alleviate pain and anxiety while helping with inflammation. Since prescription drugs like NSAIDs can harm dogs, especially with prolonged use, CBD offers an alternative that current research shows is likely safe. If it works well for your pet (and we always advise that you work in cooperation and at the direction of a licensed veterinarian), it may be a better, safer alternative.


    One downside of hemp extracts can be their cost – depending on the product purchased, CBD can be expensive for many consumers. CBDfx is no exception. The quality of their manufacturing, formulation, packaging, and marketing process is reflected in the cost of their products.

    Ease of Dosing – Dog Treats

    The dog treats were well-received by my two dogs. They are also easy to dose – you can break them in half without difficulty. They are covered in green dust that does tend to get everywhere. You may want to open the package/give them to your dog outside, or be careful to avoid spreading the dust.

    Ease of Dosing – Tincture

    The tinctures are supplied with a dropper. Droppers are commonly used, accurate, easy to understand, and make administering an accurate dose straightforward.

    Balm Quality

    The balm formulation was my least favorite of the three products, but it works. It has a unique smell that is not unpleasant.  It is somewhat difficult to get a film rubbed off on your fingertips to apply to your pet’s paws. As my dogs do not currently suffer from dry/sore paws (they’re farm dogs and spend their days running on grassy fields), I was unable to determine the efficacy of the formulation, but I believe it would work just fine based on the ingredients.

    Reviews of the CBDfx Products We Tried

    The CBD dog treats smell pleasant and come attractively packaged. They are covered in some sort of green dust that does get everywhere – it washes off hands with soap and water, but I would avoid opening the bag or removing treats near any furniture/carpet where the green dust might be hard to remove. The treats are easy to break in half if you should need to do so for dosing, and my dogs liked them enough they qualified as “treats” in the usual sense of the word.

    The tinctures are similar to other CBD tinctures I’ve used, and the flavor is such that my dogs took the tincture without fuss or need to “flavor” it with liver or another strong flavoring agent. This has not been true of all other tinctures/CBD liquids I’ve used with these same dogs. Dosing is easy using the provided eyedropper.

    The balm doesn’t smell bad but it is hard to use. It’s a dense cake that is hard to get into a liquid form. Most of the topical products I’ve used have a wax base (usually beeswax) that is hard but liquifies when rubbed and it’s easy to get a layer off to rub onto a dog’s paw. This appears to be a plant base product and does not have that same ease of use.

    All of the products have totally transparent labels with ingredients, and all of the ingredients appear to be of high quality and appropriate for the usage intended. I did not see any preservatives or other chemical additives often associated with commercially produced pet products.

    Our Experience With CBDfx Products

    Both my Australian Shepherd and hound mix enjoyed the treats and were willing to take the tincture directly without my having to smother it in liver (this is usually required for liquid prescription medications). They also ate their food with it applied without fuss. Within 20 minutes both of them seemed to be even more relaxed than normal, and the normally spastic Aussie decided to take a nap. I did not notice any negative effects. I think that CBD likely does have an effect on dogs as a relaxant. To my knowledge, neither dog suffers from arthritis or joint pain, so I was unable to see the efficacy of these products for that use firsthand.

    I tried to get the balm out of the jar to use, but had such a time trying to get it onto my fingertips I didn’t feel it was worth trying to rub on my dog’s paws – it would have taken too many tries.

    Final Verdict

    CBDfx offers a wide variety of human and pet CBD products. Their products bear witness to their commitments on transparency and they provide lab reports on every lot of product they sell. CBDfx gets our approval as a source of high-quality, well-made CBD treats and tinctures that are well received by dogs. Their cost is moderately higher than comparable products from their competitors, but their transparency and ease of accessing lab reports to feel confident in what you’re getting is also some of the best I’ve seen in this market space. I am confident as a dog owner that CBDfx products are of excellent manufacture for a decent price, and I would definitely consider purchasing more from them if I require CBD products for my pets or myself in the future.
