Can I Give My Dog CBD Oil?

Do you enjoy the relaxing and therapeutic effects of CBD oil? Wondering if you can pass these effects on to your faithful canine friend?  Not to worry because we’re here to tell you using CBD oil on your dog is totally safe and actually recommended in certain instances.  Much like in humans, CBD oil can be used to treat pets like dogs and cats with a number of ailments. Pets suffering from cancer, epilepsy and seizures, skin and coat problems, digestive issues, joint and muscle debilities, or just general pain and inflammation can all be treated with CBD oil.

In fact, CBD oil works just as well on most mammals. This is because we share the same Endocannabinoid System, the process through with cannabinoids like CBD are processed. When CBD enters this system, it reacts with its receptors in a completely natural process, resulting in the calming and relief effects CBD is known for. This system is found in humans, dogs, cats, even horses!

Because safety is guaranteed, many pet owners start their animals with small doses of CBD oil to see if their furry friends react well to it. Though CBD won’t produce any serious side effects in pets, overestimating how much CBD your dog can intake might result in some sedative-like effects and make them overly tired. While this is of course only temporary, you can avoid this by ensuring your pet is given the right amount from the onset.

A handy way of determining how much CBD oil your dog should take can be found here:

  • 05mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (low)
  • 125mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (mid)
  • 25mg CBD x 0.5kg of body weight (high)

Although just like humans, every dog will respond differently to CBD, so it’s best to start low and experiment with whatever suits them best. These doses can be administered twice daily, in the morning and at night for the best results.

After determining that CBD works for your pet, you can move them onto specialized pet CBD products. CBD made specifically for your animal of choice can help give proper doses and ensure the best quality.

And it’s not just CBD oil that works for dogs. While CBD oil can safely be administered under your pet’s tongue, actually doing so might be a hassle. Thankfully, CBD oil can also be harmlessly mixed into their food. It may take a bit longer for its effect to show, as it has to be digested first, but this method makes integrating CBD oil into your pet’s life as seamless as possible.

There’s even special CBD food and treats for pets, making it simple to both adjust the dosage and get your pet enthusiastic about having it. Along with this, there’s sprays and balms to give them healthy and beautiful coats.

CBD is already greatly improving the lives of people who might otherwise be suffering, so it’s a no-brainer that we’d want to offer that same relaxation and pain-relief to our pets too. CBD can make the difference in giving your pets longer, happier, and healthier lives. So don’t be afraid to share the curative wonders of CBD with your pet. They’d thank you for it if they could.
