cbd dosing guide for dogs

CBD, or Cannabidiol, delivers powerful health benefits to your furry friend. When taken correctly, your pup may experience pain relief, reduced stress and anxiety, improved immune system function and more. Every pup is unique and may need a different amount of CBD based on his size and the severity of his symptoms. Our CBD dosing chart for dogs steers you in the right direction when giving CBD to your furry friend.

CBD dosing chart for dogs

A 10-lb Shih Tzu experiencing symptoms of anxiety would need a 1.4 mg dose of CBD. This translates to 6, 2 and 1 drop(s) of 150, 375 and 1,000 mg CBD Hemp Oil respectively.

We recommend using a higher potency product for larger pets. This method is more cost efficient, especially for pets that need several drops. By giving your pet less drops per serving, you get the most bang for your buck and can give him accurate doses quickly and easily.

Let’s look at an example: Clifford is a 115-lb rottweiler suffering from hip dysplasia. His mobility has started to decline, and the pain is affecting his appetite. Your wallet would benefit more from 9 drops of 1,000 milligram CBD Hemp Oil twice daily rather than 60 drops of the 150 milligram oil.

Keeping track of administered drops and maintaining your pup’s attention for that long would be tedious. Regardless of concentration, a proper dose of CBD will reduce Clifford’s swelling, increase his mobility and stimulate his appetite. Because his weight falls between 100 and 125 pounds, you should find a good middle ground between the two suggested serving sizes (8 and 10 drops) to give him the most accurate dose possible.

How Much CBD Is Too Much CBD?

Research suggests CBD usage can help reduce symptoms, but it’s important to know the proper dosage. Did your pup get to the CBD and take the whole bottle at once? He may be a little more tired than usual, but that’s nothing a good nap won’t fix. There is no chance of overdose associated with this natural compound, so rest assured that CBD will not have fatal effects.
