CBD doses for dogs or cats

CBD doses for dogs or cats 2018-09-13T16:53:05+00:00

Determining the ideal dose may require experimentation

Whether you’re using hemp CBD oil for anxiety or pain relief, the right dose can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next. Some animals do not have as many receptors as others and you may need to experiment to find the right amount and how often. Start with a dose on the low end of the range and expect to see results in 30 – 60 minutes. If there is no change after an hour, increase the dosage. Occasionally improvements will take more than one treatment.

Basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1-5 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight.

To control pain, give every 8 hours or as needed. For other uses, or to break unwanted behavior patterns, give once or twice a day. Keep in mind that there is there is no known toxicity associated with CBD.
