Bluebird Botanicals Companion Capsules

These soft-gel CBD capsules are great for medium to large dogs. The easy to swallow softgels pack in 15 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract each. We love seeing pet products like this using full-spectrum extracts designed for pets — something that’s relatively hard to find in a marketplace dominated by isolate-based pet products.

Price/Value 5/5

Compared to Bluebird Botanicals Hemp CBD Capsules, these have the same pricing at $39.95 for 30 capsules. Overall, these bottles contain 450 mg of CBD which works out to roughly $0.09 per mg of CBD. This is about as low as you can expect to pay for pet capsules of this strength and quality — which are generally more marked up in price. 

CBD Potency 5/5

Companion Capsules each contain 5 or 15 mg of CBD, which may seem low in potency, but it’s important to remember pets don’t require as much CBD as we do. The 5 mg variant is likely more appropriate for small pets, while the 15 mg option may work well for medium to larger dogs.

Hemp Source 4/5

These capsules are made from full-spectrum hemp extracts sourced from Colorado, USA, which is free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and heavy metals. The hemp seed oil comes from Canada and is certified organic.

Purpose/Uses 4/5

Companion Capsules are geared towards improving the general wellbeing of your pets. The strength is high enough to provide benefits, but without the inclusion of additional ingredients with known benefits, these capsules have no clear focus. 

Product Variations 5/5

Bluebird Botanicals offers two CBD capsules, in 5 or 15 mg strengths. The 5 mg option is available in bottles of 60 and 120, while the 15 mg product comes in bottles of 30 or 60. This is a solid selection of CBD pet capsules considering it’s already a fairly niche product. 

Formula 4/5

Bluebird Botanicals utilize a simple formula of full-spectrum hemp oil extract and a hemp seed carrier oil. 

Hemp seed oil is particularly cheap to manufacture despite containing omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. However, there are more advanced carrier oils that provide much better bioavailability.

Bluebird Botanicals Companion Capsules Review

Article By
Editorial Staff , last updated on December 16, 2020

Are you familiar with the benefits CBD and interested in passing on those same benefits to your furry friends?

The Companion Capsules range from Bluebird Botanicals could be what you’re after. Capsules are one of the best methods to ensure a consistent dose every time and are easily consumable.

This review takes an in-depth look at Bluebird Botanicals to see how they compare to the competition. Read on to find why we think these capsules might be a good choice for medium to large pets.

Overview: Companion Capsules

Bluebird Botanicals’ offers two different CBD companion capsules: Companion Capsules and Concentrated Companion Capsules. Both products are third-party tested and made with full-spectrum hemp extracts.

The standard capsules contain 5 mg of CBD per capsule and are generally better suited for smaller dogs or cats – these capsules can be purchased in quantities of 60 or 120.

The concentrated capsules contain 15 mg of CBD, making them ideal for medium-sized animals. Larger animals may need multiple capsules to hit their optimal dosage level – these capsules are available in 30 or 60 count bottles.

Bluebird Botanicals’ also offers Companion Oils which allow you to customize your pet’s dose a little bit easier.

Pros & Cons

Pros Cons
  • Provides consistent dosage
  • Has no taste
  • THC-free
  • Capsules can be difficult to administer to dogs and cats

Key Features and Benefits

1. Consistent Dosage

Each capsule is guaranteed to contain 5 or 15 mg of CBD — depending on which product you choose — so there’s no need to take time to measure out a proper dosage for your furry friend.

You’ll know exactly what they’re getting every time.

2. Tasteless

These capsules are unflavored, which makes them a good choice for pickier pets. They can be easily hidden in cheese or other treats to make them as appealing as possible.

3. 0% THC

Just like the other products created by Bluebird Botanicals, these capsules contain no THC. There’s no need to worry about your pet getting high and feeling euphoric effects from eating these capsules.

About the Company: Bluebird Botanicals

Founded in 2012 in Louisville, Colorado, Bluebird Botanicals is a mid-sized family-run company that prides itself on “playing an integral role in creating the hemp-CBD industry”. 

With a primary focus on providing quality, transparency, and care, the company believes that “everyone deserves to live their fullest lives, whilst also driving progress in policy and advocacy”.

Who Should Consider Using Companion Capsules?

Bluebird Botanicals’ Companion Capsules are a smart choice for pets using CBD for the first time. They’re also useful for small to medium-sized cats and dogs.

If you’re looking for a consistent dosage to provide your pet with daily relief, then these capsules may be the product that you’re looking for.

Some may find dropping oil directly into a pet’s mouth to be tough, and while you can infuse their food with oils, picky eaters may pick up on the scent or flavor and refuse to eat them.

Capsules, on the other hand, can be wrapped in something like meat or cheese and disguised as a treat.

Price/Value

Companion Concentrated Capsules start at $39.95 for a 30 count bottle, which contains a total of 450 mg of CBD.

Breaking it down, this comes to $0.09 per mg of CBD, placing it as the exact same value as the company’s human capsule products.

One thing we appreciate about Bluebird Botanicals is that the company doesn’t increase its prices simply because they’re marketed towards pets, which so many companies out there seem to do.

CBD Potency

Companion Capsules (standard and concentrated) contain 5 or 15 mg of CBD, respectively, which may seem low at first glance, but it’s important to remember that animals require a much lower dosage than humans.

Overall, these capsules cover a good range of pets but Bluebird Botanicals may benefit from adding a high strength option for bigger animals.

Hemp Source

Companion Capsules are made from hemp seed oil imported from Canada, and full-spectrum hemp extract sourced from Colorado, USA.

We’re not given the exact location in Canada, but it’s certified organic, and the test results show that the products are free of pesticides, fertilizers, and heavy metals.

Purpose/Uses

Bluebird Botanicals states these products can improve your pet’s general wellbeing.

Some of the appropriate uses for these capsules include improving the appetite of your pet, reducing pain, or helping them control anxiety when left alone or during travel.

Product Variations/Flavors

Depending on which product you choose, the Companion Capsules come in three sizes. 60 and 120 count bottles for the 5 mg variety, and 30 or 60 for the 15 mg option.

Formula

According to the Bluebird Botanical website, its simple formula is “full-spectrum hemp extract emulsified in organic hemp seed oil”.

Hemp seed oil in itself has health benefits of its own. Comprised of 3:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3, respectively, hemp seed oil is known to have antioxidant effects, as well as promoting heart health.

Unfortunately, hemp seed oil isn’t quite as effective as medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) insofar as providing a quality carrier oil – hemp seed oil is much cheaper and less effective in terms of absorption.

We’d like to see Bluebird Botanicals utilizing better carrier oils in the future.

Ingredients: Full-spectrum Hemp Oil Extract, Organic Hemp Seed Oil

Shipping and Returns

Bluebird Botanicals claims to ship all items within 1 to 2 business days of the “receipt and acceptance of the order”.

The company uses U.S. Postal Service priority mail, which should generally get to your doorstep within 2 to 3 days – a signature will be required for orders over $250. 

They also offer free domestic shipping on orders over $49. 

They ship to the following countries: UK, Poland, Greece, Gibraltar, and within the United States.

They offer a 30-day refund policy from the date of your purchase and must only be to the value of $110 to qualify. 

Returns/refunds are typically processed within 1 to 2 business days.

Final Verdict: Solid Product at a Competitive Price

This is a product we definitely recommend purchasing for your pet’s health.

Many competitors’ products aren’t third-party tested and significantly more expensive for a CBD isolate.

Bluebird Botanicals also has a good selection of CBD pet capsules, with two different CBD strengths and 3 sizes available.

You may find that the 5 mg capsules are good for smaller dogs or cats, while the concentrated options may work well for your medium to large size dogs.

These CBD pet capsules are priced to sell. They’re made with high-quality hemp and third-party tested. If you think that your pet may be able to benefit from CBD, Bluebird Botanicals is a good choice.
