Can You Use CBD for Storm Anxiety?

Updated: Apr 14

It can be sad and frustrating to watch your pet during bad thunderstorms. Our pets express their stress during storms like these with panting, pacing, hiding or even destroying furniture in extreme cases.


However, there are many tools pet parents can use to make their pets feel calm and collected in these situations. In this post, we share how CBD and other tools can help keep your pet feeling calm and safe through storms.

Safe over Sedated


Suzie’s CBD is a great option for those to looking to see their pet feeling safer during storms. CBD accomplishes this by interacting with the serotonin receptors to foster a sense of calm and well-being.


This sense of wellness and balance keeps pets calm without sedating them, which often can cause confusion or a loss of their normal, unique personality!

CBD Tips


In order to see the best results, be sure to administer Suzie’s CBD with enough time beforehand. Typically, 30-45 minutes if possible. We also recommend introducing CBD before their first storm to increase effectiveness.


Because storms are high-stress situations, you may want to give a higher dose of CBD than you typically would. You may also want to do this if you only give CBD to your pets situationally.

Additional Tools


In addition to CBD in the form of pet tincture or treats, there are several tools you can implement to help with storm anxiety. Using weighted blankets, interactive toys and storm jackets are a few examples of items that can help your pet.


A safe space during a storm is essential for helping your pet’s anxiety. Create an environment they are familiar with and play calming music or white noise to help them feel safer.
