Actually, there is, and some of those differences between CBD for dogs and CBD for human consumption are as follows.
Taste And Flavor
It is one of the biggest differences between CBD products for dogs and humans. The veterinary CBD products will be flavored to please the taste buds of animals. For example, the CBD products for dogs will be flavored like meat or other flavors that are normally found in dog foods. They will never be having its natural taste or the flavor of fruits. Sometimes it also comes in the flavorless form to allow the dog owners to mix them with other foods given to their pets.
However, most of the CBD edibles that are available for human consumption will be having its natural earthy or nutty flavor. Some of the CBD edibles like gummies and chocolates also come with the taste of fruits and chocolate. In addition to that, there are also flavorless or tasteless CBD products available for human consumption.

Type Of Product

Each of these products has their own unique features and qualities. CBD vape products are more preferred by the people because it gives a faster effect to the users compared to other CBD products. CBD edibles like gummies and pills are also common among the people because it is more convenient to administer its dosage.
On the other hand, there are only a few varieties of veterinary products available in the market such as edibles and oils. This is because most of the animals like dogs and cats are allergic to smoke and vapor. Therefore the only mode of providing them CBD is through food. CBD edibles are very popular because it has almost all the necessary vitamins and minerals required for the dogs, hence it can be used as an alternative to pet food. Oils are also used by many pet owners to mix CBD in the regular diet of their pets.
Proportion Of CBD

Most of the veterinary CBD products will be having pure form of CBD or CBD isolate with 99 percent of CBD because other cannabinoids are harmful to animals. Moreover, the veterinary CBD products, whether it is edible or oil, will be having only a small proportion of CBD because the dogs and cats do not have the capacity to intake a high concentration of cannabidiol.
It is different in the case of CBD for human consumption because these products are available in different concentrations and also in different dosages. It is evident from a research that humans can intake up to 1500mg of CBD per day. The normal CBD product also comes with full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD, to increase the potential benefits of consumption. Pure CBD products like highly concentrated CBD oil and tincture are also available in the market.
Benefits And Usage
Most of the veterinary CBD products are provided to animals for the treatment of conditions like loss of appetite and sleeplessness. Since CBD is effective in controlling the Endocannabinoid System, it helps in managing the digestion and also in removing the problem of sleeplessness. In addition to that, many pet owners are providing CBD to their pets for reducing inflammation and also for faster recovery from fractures. In some cases it is effective because of the basic properties of CBD but it is not yet clinically proven.
