There are certain guidelines to CBD that make it so flexible while being so effective still. The benefits of CBD can really shine because it can help with a low amount of risk. CBD oil actually has an unrealistically high toxicity level which means there is no sign of an overdose being possible with common CBD products. There can however be minor side effects which are still rarely seen in CBD users.
Because there is no need to worry about overdosing your dog it is easy to find the sweet spot of CBD oil for your dog. We recommend starting on the low end and working your way up slowly to help your dog adjust a little more. Along with this make sure to read the product's instructions to make sure you are getting the right amounts.
As an example, I will go over three products by Natural Doggie that contain the same CBD oil but vary in potency due to the medium they are presented in.
Natural Doggie CBD Infused Coconut Oil is the first of these products which contain 5 mg of CBD per 1 TSP. they recommend starting out with a 1/4th teaspoon per day and working up to 1 teaspoon per 10-20 pounds of a dog once they become acclimated.
On their CBD baked dog treats, however, they recommend 1 treat (2 mg CBD) for dogs under 10 pounds, 2 treats for 10-25 pounds, 3 treats for 26-50 pounds, and 4 treats (8 mg CBD) for dogs 50 pounds and up. This is different from the coconut oil because the way it is produced will affect the potency.
The last product of theirs I will talk about it their tincture which is pure full spectrum CBD oil for dogs and cats. The regular dose for this product is half a dropper which is 4.2 mg of CBD and they recommend this half of a dropper for dogs up to 30 pounds and then a full dropper for dogs over this.
