Is CBD oil good for dogs? What is CBD dosage for a dog?

Is hemp oil good for dogs?

CBD oil can be used for dogs to relieve pain, relieve seizures, relieve anxiety, help with nausea, support cancer, heart health, stimulate appetite, and support inflammation. For most of these applications, very few studies have been conducted on dogs, but research is ongoing. Some studies suggest potential CBD benefits for dogs with seizures and pain.

Just as determining the best CBD dosage for humans, the CBD dosage for dogs depends on a number of factors. Since CBD interacts with the body's natural receptors, each and every pet reacts differently to it. Some are more sensitive than others and need lower doses for the same effect.

For this reason, it is recommended to start with a minimum dose and go until you achieve the desired effect. Of course, you should always consult your pet's veterinarian before using CBD.

At the same time, you need to know why you want to give your dog CBD? There are a number of reasons why someone might think about giving CBD to their dog, but you need to compare your dog's overall needs before and after using CBD to determine the appropriate dosage.

And finally, the weight of your dog matters, at least to some extent. Two 50-pound dogs may react differently to the same dose of CBD, but your dog's weight will give you a good idea of how much CBD it will need to feel the consequences.

How long does it take for CBD oil to work for dogs? Like humans, the dog takes about 3-7 days to experience the noticeable effects of CBD. So if you don't feel it works right away - stick to it for at least a week before you give up. If you started with a minimal dose and did not notice any changes during this time, try increasing the dose about every three days until your dog's symptoms begin to ease. (Again, you want to check with your pet's vet.)

So, what is the correct CBD dosage for your dog?

Most pet care companies recommend 0.5 to 5 milligrams of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight.

Here is a summary of the recommended initial dose for your dog according to its weight:

5 pounds: 0.25 milligrams

10 pounds: 0.5 milligrams

20 pounds: 1 milligram

40 pounds: 2 milligrams

60 pounds: 3 milligrams

80 pounds: 4 milligrams

100 pounds: 5 milligrams

120 pounds: 6 milligrams

Start with these initial doses and increase the dose by 0.5 milligrams after 3 days if symptoms do not improve. You may have to increase the dosage several times before you find a "sweet spot" for your dog, so give it a little time and patience if you don't immediately notice the positive results.

And an interesting trick is to consume more CBD than your body needs, which can be less effective than consuming only the right amount. So it's worth the time to find the right dosage for your dog.
