So, you’ve received your bottle of CBD for pets… NOW WHAT?
The first thing to do is spend some time determining the dosage that will be most effective for your pet. 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.
Hemp extract is extremely safe, even at high levels. The most common, however unlikely, effects you may see are sleepiness or loose stools/diarrhea. Bodily injury as a result of CBD consumption is highly unlikely.
Tip* Try keeping a daily journal to track your pet’s response.
- Keep a log of the dose in milligrams (mg).
- Record some information about how they respond. (eg. energy levels, mobility, symptom relief, sleep patterns etc.)
- Adjust accordingly. We encourage you to be flexible with the dose until you find the right amount for your pet’s specific needs.
