It’s a proven fact that all mammals, people, and pets alike, have an Endocannabinoid System.
That means that your dog can enjoy CBD just as people do. The Endocannabinoid System is a huge network comprised of many cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body. This crucial system is used by the body to help maintain balance. CBD can be easily metabolized and has little to no side effects. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD is not psychoactive. This means it will not make your dog high.
The general rule of thumb most veterinarians give owners is to “go low and go slow” when starting CBD treatment for their dogs. This means you should start at a low dose and slowly increase it if necessary. Effects usually begin in 30 to 60 minutes and typically last 6 to 8 hours.
For A Regular Dose:
Use one-quarter of a milligram (0.25 milligrams) for each pound of bodyweight.
For a Strong Dose:
Use one half of a milligram (0.5 milligrams) for each pound of bodyweight. Administer this amount for more severe effects.
Always look for quality when shopping for CBD. Search for products that are organic or natural. Make sure the product is tested by an independent third party. Also, look for nutritious ingredients like beneficial superfoods and supplements.
