All About CBD Balm!

Updated: Jul 19

As loving pet parents, there are plenty of things we need to watch out for. Dry, irritated skin – specifically on a paw or boop – is one of them. Fortunately, Gizzls CBD Balm for Boops, Skin and Paws can help with this!


Gizzls topical CBD balm for Boops, Skin and Paws is ideal for skin irritations, allergies, wound healing, insect bites, hot spots and cracked paws and is formulated with penetrating ingredients for maximum absorption. It's also antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. In addition to nourishing the skin, this balm protects and treats bacterial issues, like dry eczema and mild dermatitis.


When used on dog and cats paw pads or little boops, CBD balm is great at soothing your furry friend's discomfort. It's a great holistic option to turn to during the cold, winter months after you and your pup have enjoyed outdoor excursions. In summer, hot pavements can burn a dog’s paws. Damaged paw pads can be very painful for your pooch and if they begin to dry and crack, it can lead to infections and other issues.



CBD Balm: What Is It?

Gizzls CBD balm consists of soothing plant-based essential oils, hemp seed oil, coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax and full-spectrum CBD oil. These ingredients act as a healing moisturiser for your pet's skin and the balm is antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. The reason they work so well together is because they naturally contain vitamins and omegas that promote healthy skin cell growth and rejuvenation, which keeps your pet's paws, skin and boops healthy, while also providing protection against the elements of the great outdoors. The beauty of this balm is that it can be safely used on sensitive skins.


Why Use A Balm?

Cracked paw pads

As humans, we wear shoes whenever we leave the house. Unfortunately, our dogs don't have the same luxury. Instead, their skin consistently comes into contact with the great outdoors. This constant exposure can eventually lead to cracked paws. This is where CBD balm comes in!

Let's take a look at the anatomy of a dog paw. A typical dog paw has five main dog paw pads. These act as shock absorbers to ease the pressure on your dog’s joints. Even so, the paw pads still end up getting the brunt of any impact whenever your dog walks, runs, jumps, and plays. Needless to say, over the years, your dog's paw pads will end up seeing a lot of action, and the constant stress can eventually take a toll, resulting in hardened skin.

Paw pad skin can also harden as dogs age. In some cases, this can lead to discomfort in a senior pup because the flexibility of their paw pads has diminished.

Dogs who are outdoor enthusiasts are more susceptible to paw pad issues. With a lot of outdoor activity, their paw pad skin will form a thick layer of protective cells as a shield against the environment. This can be a problem because the paw pads often become too hard. In each of these scenarios, hard skin becomes ground zero for several paw pad issues such as drying and cracking, which can be painful for dogs and which can ultimately lead to infections.


Gizzls CBD balm, will soothe your pet’s boops, skin and paws by providing much-needed, moisturising relief and hydration, two factors that are essential in keeping your dog's paws healthy, strong and able to weather Mother Nature.

When it comes to boops, skin and paws, there are a number of issues every pet parent should be on the look out for. Here are some of the more common issues that show up:


Skin Allergies

We all know what it’s like to have a mozzie bite or rash that starts with a tingling sensation that gradually gets worse as you continue to scratch and focus on it. This is especially true for dogs and cats too!


Gizzls CBD Balm will relieve itchiness or skin problems and will soothe the skin as well as address the restlessness that comes with itchiness. If the balm is used in conjunction with our CBD treats or oil, it will also calm the nerves and anxiety that comes with excessive itchiness. It will help to break the vicious cycle of licking or scratching itchy skin, which can cause irritated skin or hot spots that lead to continued scratching and more painful skin reactions.


Once the skin is soothed and your pet is less focused on their skin and calmer, they will likely scratch less which allows the skin time to heal. As our balm is also antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory, it can treat bacterial issues, like dry eczema and mild dermatitis.  



Dry Nose

Just like paws, a nose can also become dry and irritated. This is especially the case during the winter months. In the same way that our lips tend to become chapped more regularly when the temperatures drop, dogs and cats also deal with dry noses when those cold fronts move in.


Since their nose is a pup's number one tool when it comes to exploring the world and his most powerful sense in general (a dog's nose is up to 100 million times more sensitive than a person's), an irritated boop is the last thing your four-legged pal wants to deal with.

Fortunately, our balm is perfectly safe to use on boops as well. The balm will soothe that aching snout and help your pup get back to his sniffing adventures in no time!


How to apply balm

Apply to clean paws, noses, elbows, skin or hot spots two to three times daily and thoroughly massage until balm is fully absorbed. Use on a consistent basis as this allows the balm to work its magic!
