Compared to humans, pets can prove to be more sensitive to cannabis. This is why it is essential to know precisely how much CBD you need to administer to your pet and how often to avoid overdosing your pet. The amount that should be given to your pet depends on its species (cat, dog, etc.) and the size of your pet. For example, dogs metabolize plant-based compounds faster than cats. Usually, dogs need two administrations of capsules a day and three times for oil. Cats typically take CBD capsules and oils one to two times a day.
Will My Pet Be High on CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) found in pet supplements usually derives from hemp, a variation of the cannabis plant. Hemp contains marginal concentrations of THC, the psychoactive compound that produces a “high.” So, the short answer is no. CBD supplements have little to no psychoactive compounds and are safe to be used on pets.
So, How much CBD should I give my pet?
This is still an unclear question with unclear answers. Recommended CBD dosing can vary slightly as you switch products, as many manufacturers will make their products differently from brand to brand. This is primarily because of the entourage effect of CBD, meaning it has more potent and quicker effects when administered with other compounds. We recommend using 100% CBD products, and that way, you can easily calculate the dose amount relative to your pet’s weight, size, and metabolism.
