CBD Dog Oil Frequently Asked Questions

We personally work with local farms and clean, registered labs. We know the complete history of all of our products and can answer any question you may have. If you don’t see the answer here, please contact us and we are happy to help.

Can my dog get high from CBD Dog Oil?

No, your pet will not get high from CBD Dog Health’s products. Our CBD oil comes from the hemp plant, which contains less than 0.3% THC. THC is the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant that most people associate with feeling “high”. Cannabinoids in our CBD oil for dogs and cats, including cannabidiol (CBD), will not cause psychoactive effects or a “high” feeling. At high doses, some dogs have been known to get ‘the zoomies’ at first, but that usually doesn’t occur after regular use.

What is hemp? Isn’t that just another word for marijuana, or weed?

Hemp is a legal classification that refers to strains of the cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC. Cannabis containing more than 0.3% THC is considered marijuanna, commonly known for its use in the human recreational market.

Is hemp legal?

Yes! Hemp oil is legal in all 50 states, and thanks to the 2018 Farm bill, hemp is being grown in 40 states.

Marijuana is not legal in all 50 states because it contains higher amounts of THC. Hemp is different from marijuana because it has a lower amount of THC (the psychoactive compound associated with feeling “high”). While both hemp and marijuana are part of the cannabis plant family, hemp has less than 0.3% THC, but has larger quantities of other effective compounds (called cannabinoids), like CBD.

How is CBD Dog Health Different from the other guys?

CBD Dog Health products are formulated specifically for pets by Angela Ardolino, a medical cannabis expert, under the advisement of chemists and veterinarians.

Our CBD products are made with American, hemp grown organically without the use of pesticides rather than using industrialized hemp oil from other countries.

Additionally, CBD Dog Health products are full-spectrum CBD rich-hemp extracts – not isolate, distillate, or products labeled “pure CBD” or “No THC.” Full-spectrum means that no cannabinoids were removed during the extraction or manufacturing process. Our CBD oils include numerous cannabis compounds, including a small amount of THC (0.3% or less).

CBD Dog Health products are rigorously tested by third party labs to ensure consistency and purity from contaminants

The essential oils used in CBD Dog Health products are pure, sourced organically in the U.S., and our CBD-rich products are derived from high-resin cannabis grown sustainably in accordance with the certified regenerative organic standards.

Pet owners know exactly what they are getting with CBD Dog Health products. Our bottles indicate the amount of CBD and hemp oil per serving – not just the total cannabinoid content for the entire bottle. We don’t expect our customers to blindly trust us — rather, we are here to prove to you how much we care for your pet and their wellbeing.

How do I know I can trust CBD Dog Health?

Can my dog overdose on CBD oil? Can cats overdose on CBD oil?

Your pet cannot overdose on full spectrum hemp extract (CBD) oil. There have been numerous studies on the safety of CBD and full-spectrum hemp extract which confirm its safety for use in animals. In our experience, the most common side effect from giving too much is that a pet may get diarrhea or may become temporarily lethargic.

Every pet is different and some pets require more CBD than others. Check out our dosing guidelines to learn more about the proper starting point by ailment.

How long does CBD oil take to start working?

Each pet and ailment are different, so the reaction times to CBD oil may vary.

For situational anxiety and pain, you should see a change within 15-30 minutes. If you don’t see a change within a half hour, administer another dose. Remember: your pet cannot overdose, and because every animal is different, it may take a bit of tweaking to find the right amount of CBD oil for your specific dog or cat. Check out our dosing guidelines here.

What is the dosage for CBD Dog Oil tinctures?

Despite common misconceptions, dosing CBD has very little to do with your dog’s size and weight. Dosage is most effectively determined with consideration for each animal’s unique physiological condition. This includes characteristics such as their endocannabinoid system, age, metabolism, disease process, current ailments and other individual health factors.

For example, eight milligrams (8 mg) of our Calm tincture may be plenty to calm down one dog. But another dog of the same breed and similar size may need 15 or 20 milligrams.

During the first few weeks, we recommend a trial and error method as you monitor your animal’s response and determine optimal dose. The old saying “start low and go slow” is extremely applicable when considering full-spectrum hemp extract for your animal.

Noise, travel, or situational anxiety – Start with 9 mg before the triggering event. Wait 15-20 minutes and if your pet is still anxious, administer another 9 mg until you see results. CBD Dog Health’s CALM tincture contains 9 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

General anxiety – Start with a daily dose of at least 9 mg. If you don’t notice a difference within one to two weeks, increase the dosage to 15 – 25 mg daily. CBD Dog Health’s CALM tincture contains 9 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Arthritis – Start with 9 – 12 mg daily. If you don’t notice a difference in one to two weeks, increase by another 9 – 12 mg daily until you see results. You’ll know you found the correct dose when you see your dog run faster, jump higher, and become puppy-like again. CBD Dog Health’s EASE tincture contains 9 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Allergies – Start with 9 – 12 mg daily. If you don’t notice a difference within one to two weeks, increase by another 9 – 12 mg daily. Note: most often, allergies are caused by diet, and the diet should be altered to fully resolve the issue. CBD Dog Health’s EASE tincture contains 9 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Aches and Pains – Start with 9 – 18 mg situationally or daily. If your dog is still in pain after 10 – 15 minutes, administer another 9 – 18 mg. CBD Dog Health’s EASE tincture contains 9 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Cancer – For best results, administer 50 – 100 mg daily. However, to get started we suggest starting with 35 – 50 mg daily and increase if needed. CBD Dog Health’s HEAL tincture contains 37 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Seizures – Start with 35 – 50 mg daily and/or during seizure activity to stop seizures from occurring. Please consult your veterinarian if your pet is on phenobarbital before weaning. CBD Dog Health’s HEAL tincture contains 37 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

Autoimmune Diseases – Start with 35 – 50 mg daily and increase if needed. CBD Dog Health’s HEAL tincture contains 37 mg of full spectrum hemp extract CBD per 1 mL serving (1 dropper).

How do I administer CBD oil tinctures?

For the fastest and most thorough absorption, lift the lip and apply dose directly onto the gums, as the most direct way into the bloodstream. If added to food, it may not be as effective and can take significantly longer (30-45 min.) to reach the bloodstream as it works its way through the gastrointestinal system.


How long does a bottle last?

Each one ounce bottle contains 30 doses. Each 2 ounce bottle contains 60 ounces.

Depending on how much oil you are giving per day and which tincture you are using, you get between 30-60 days of product.

CBD Dog Health salves typically last 30 days with daily use.

Can I use CBD Dog products on my cat?

Yes! CBD Dog Health products are safe for all mammals, including dogs, cats, bunnies, horses, and other furry friends. CBD Dog makes a line of CBD products for cats, which can be found online and in stores.

It is safe for my pet to lick CBD oil salves?

Yes! All of CBD Dog Health’s ingredients are all-natural and safe for your pet to lick.

Does each CBD oil do something different?

While all our products contain premium grade, full-spectrum hemp extract, each formula has specific properties to target common ailments in pets.

By pairing our hemp extract with other synergistic herbal medicines, we can boost certain effects such as anti-anxiety or anti inflammation.

Where does CBD Dog Health hemp come from and how is it extracted?

CBD Dog Health’s hemp is grown at our farms in the U.S. We use the CO2 extraction method, which means that there are no chemical solvents and we preserve as much of the plant as possible with the safest extraction method. This means that your pet is never ingesting alcohol, ethanol, butane, or hexane, which can be harmful to pets and people alike (after all, nobody wants to ingest the ingredients in gasoline!).

Every batch of our CBD oil for dogs is tested by a third-party lab testing company so that we can verify the exact contents of the product. If the number of cannabinoids are not what we claim, we discard the product and start from scratch.

Once each batch has cleared our lab testing, our products are shipped to our home office in Tampa, FL, where we test every batch for quality and consistency. We have a strict rule that if we would not give the product to our own dogs, we will not give it to your dogs. Because of this rigorous process, you can rest assured that by the time the product is on the shelf or in your hands, it is the absolute highest quality available.
