DURANT, Okla. -- Ella, a two-year-old dachshund-Jack Russell terrier mix, is a little fireball of energy.  Her owner, Brooke Eastland, said it can be tough to calm her down.

CBD (cannabidiol) oil products, derived from the hemp plant, can reduce pain in your four-legged friends, just as some humans use CBD for relief and relaxation.

Eastland has tried it on her dog, and says it works wonders.

"It is very hard to get her to calm down, especially meeting new people, but with these treats it's been such a difference," she said. "It takes maybe like an hour to kick in, and then she is calm. She'll just sit on the sofa and chew on her bone. She wont be jumping everywhere like she normally is."

The oils can also help with seizures and boost your dog or cat's appetite.

CBD American Shaman in Durant carries CBD products made specifically for pets.

"The CBD for the dog is meat-and-cheese flavored, so they take that," said the shop's owner, Dan Holldorf. "I actually have a little puppy dog that we give it to. He's all over the place. At night we give him a little bit of shots so he can go to bed. He goes to sleep, so we can go to sleep."

CBD products are also said to help heal diseases and soothe pet anxiety.

"She's very hyper, she gets very excited very easily," Eastland said. "It's a big difference, at least what I've noticed, in her."
