can i give my dog a cbd gummie

Although animals might process CBD in a different way (which is still under research), they have the necessary mechanisms to receive the benefits of CBD. Cannabidiol may be able to relieve pain, inflammation, and anxiety in animals, just like in humans.

Research is scarce, but, so far, it shows that CBD is safe for animals — and may be effective for a few common conditions.

Pet CBD Oil vs. Regular CBD Oil: What’s The Difference?

Notes & Dosage Instructions

But, there are some things you need to know before giving your pet CBD meant for human consumption.

There are some exceptions to this rule, and a few companies making excellent full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD pet oils. These have all been approved by vets to have safe levels of certain terpenes, as well as THC.

If you’re using our CBD Oils , remember that they come in different concentrations. The amount listed on the label is the total amount of CBD in the whole bottle and not a per-dose amount. So, for example, one 30ml bottle of 600mg CBD Hemp Oil contains 600 total milligrams of CBD, with each 0.25ml dose delivering 5mg of CBD, or enough for a 50 lbs. pup. If this seems confusing, don’t worry! Our bottles have dosage charts right there on the label and every dropper is clearly marked. Between the two, it’ll be super easy for you to figure out how much oil to use.

In many cases, your pet will tell you if it’s time for more. You’ll notice they’re having symptoms again, and you can come to the rescue with a dropper or a biscuit. They’ll be grateful when you do!

How Long Does it Take CBD to Start Working?

CBD takes 30-45 minutes to start working. As a rule, oils tend to kick in a little faster than biscuits or treat just because there are fewer ingredients for furry bellies to break down first. But there’s no difference in effectiveness between the two.

Our Peanut Butter + Apple CBD Infused Wellness Dog Biscuits come in a few different per-biscuit dosages. These yummy treats can be hard to break into smaller servings, so we recommend buying the per-biscuit dose that’s best for your own pupper and feeding them a whole one each time.

Each dose—whether from oil or biscuits—lasts from 4-8 hours. That’s a big spread, we know, but the duration can vary a lot depending on your pet’s size, activity level, breed, and the severity of their symptoms. But as a good rule of thumb: older pups tend to take longer than younger ones to digest food.

Q: Is CBD psychoactive?

Q: What about interactions with other medications? Any long-term effects to be concerned about?

A: Most cases need no treatment, aside from symptomatic care for gastrointestinal upset if it occurs. If it’s a large dose, where the THC content might be a factor, mild sedation, urinary incontinence, hyperesthesia, and ataxia could develop, and the pet should be confined to prevent injury from misadventure. If you see significant signs that look like THC toxicity, treat the pet in front of you and provide IV fluid support, anti-nausea medication, and good nursing care as needed.

A: No; however, there are several possible reasons a dog who has ingested CBD may look high:

A: Vomiting, lethargy, inappetence, and diarrhea are the most common clinical signs reported. Ataxia can occasionally occur with large ingestions.
