CBD is available in many convenient forms. Extracts can be given from a dropper bottle directly into the mouth, added to food, dropped on a treat, rubbed into the bare skin or inside the ears, or dropped on an animal’s paw so they will lick it off. You can also find hemp CBD biscuits, hemp CBD capsules and gel caps, and topical hemp CBD ointments.
Dosage can vary quite a bit from one situation to the next. It may be necessary to experiment a little to find the right amount, and how often to give.
Typical suggested starting dose: 1 mg – 5 mg per 10 lbs. of bodyweight
Start with a dose on the low end of the range. Changes usually occur within 30 minutes. If there is no change after an hour, increase the dosage. Occasionally improvements will take more than one treatment. To control pain, give approximately every 8 hours. For other uses, or to break unwanted behavior patterns, give once or twice a day. Remember that you cannot overdose and there is no toxicity associated with CBD.
When you are using CBD please keep in mind that with some conditions the results will not be instantaneous.
Example: For pain relief, it will take a few hours for your dog to feel the effects of CBD, and it can take a few days to reduce the inflammation.
