CBD (non-psychogenic hemp) may help with your pooch (or yourself) with joint pain, anxiety, seizures, inflammation, skin issues, stress, and may protect the nervous system. It will not get your dog high. We have found regular use gives the desired effect versus spot dosing.
Please check with your veterinarian prior to starting CBD oil or edibles.
Dosages of CBD oil may vary to reach desired effect. Common dosages to start include the following:
(Low Dosage): 0.05 mg x kg of body weight twice a day
(Medium dosage): 0.1mg x kg of body weight twice a day
(High dosage): 0.25 mg x kg of body weight twice a day
For example, if your dog weighs 50 pounds, that is 22.68 kg. That would be 0.1mg x 22.7 =2.27, round up to 2.3 mg of CBD twice a day. You will likely start to see subtle differences in your pet within a few weeks. You can titrate up slowly (weekly) if needed for desired effect. Desired effect for our dogs was less panting, able to get up much easier, improved appetite, and started greeting us at the door again! You will not overdose your dog on CBD hemp oil. However, if you give too much you may notice drowsiness, increased thirst, or it may interfere with the metabolism of other drugs your pet is taking.
