Kradle Calming CBD Chews, Toppers and Melts from Kradle
Purpose-built and formulated with exacting potencies by dog weight, Kradle broad-spectrum CBD products come in three delivery options. Gravy-like Toppers are portioned in single-serve snap packaging, each offering American-grown hemp CBD (with no detectable THC) and a proprietary BotaniTek blend of Shoden Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root extract (from Arjuna Natural Pvt. Ltd. India, distributed by NutriScience Innovations), gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) and L-theanine. The quick-dissolving, paper-thin Melts—for sudden stressful situations—use the BotaniTek blend with an extra serving of CBD. The Chews combine the same ingredients plus S-Adenosyl methionine (SAMe).
