Obviously, this isn’t a true “review” as I, personally, did not eat a CannaBickie, although the representative from Natural Cannabis Co. was quick to assure me that I could. One glance at the ingredients and you can see she’s right. I admire Natural Cannabis Company for their commitment to purity in their all their products and these cannabis-infused dog biscuits are no different. The first ingredient is rendered bacon-fat, followed by flour, organic milk and eggs, grade A butter, etc… Not an additive or chemical to be found. As an extremely picky pet owner of a picky dog with food allergies, I look for high quality, limited ingredients in my pet treats and CannaBickies definitely met my strict standards.
Natural Cannabis Co.’s CannaBickies ($14 – 15 biscuits) come in three flavors: peanut butter, cheese and bacon. Ingredients vary by flavor but all are high quality. For freshness and potency, they need to be kept frozen. The small, resealable packet doesn’t take up much space.
For the record, I don’t think getting your pets high is cool at all. That’s not what these biscuits are for. Each CannaBickie contains 1-2 mg of THC, making one biscuit about the proper dose for a medium-large dog, but obviously err on the side of caution until you know how your pet reacts. It should provide some relaxation and mild pain relief for your pet, not get him baked.
My big dog is about 75 lbs and I hoped CannaBickies would get him to a calm, relaxed space where I could groom his belly, an area he refuses to let me brush. I gave him one biscuit, which he ate with gusto. This is a dog that turns his nose up at Wellness dog biscuits, any flavor, so I was surprised that he didn’t sniff at it disdainfully and saunter away. He seemed to like the coldness from the freezer too.
I’m not entirely sure how to judge the effects on my dog. He didn’t suddenly develop a penchant for Cypress Hill or try to Iron Chef something together out of potato chips, peanut butter and chocolate chips; he seemed his normal, mellow self throughout the day. I gave him another the next day and he gobbled it up, so I’d say he likes the flavor. I’m going to trust that he also had an enjoyable experience!
CannaBickies are a good choice for high-strung, anxious pets, perhaps something to try for separation anxiety or before high-stress situations like vet visits. I’d also recommend them for older pets with stiffness and joint pain or dogs in recovery from surgery or injuries.
Summary: Natural Cannabis Co.’s CannaBickies are all-natural THC-infused dog biscuits designed to offer relaxation and mild pain relief for pets. Each biscuit is approximately one dose for a medium-large dog (65-80 lbs), but you should start with ¼ of a dose until you know how your pet reacts. Recommended for pets with age-related stiffness or joint problems, anxiety issues or who just need to chill out.
