Despite common misconceptions, dosing has very little to do with your dog’s size or weight. Finding the right dosage depends on your specific dog, their specific ailment, and how sensitive their endocannabinoid system is. For fastest and most thorough absorption, lift the lip and apply dose directly onto the gums, as the most direct way into the bloodstream. You can also administer CBD directly onto the hairless area of the pet’s ear flap for quick absorption, because it goes through the layers of skin and enters the blood stream through the vessels in the ear flap. If added to food, the medicine may not be as effective and can take significantly longer (30-45 min.) to reach the bloodstream as it works its way through the gastrointestinal system.

Based on research and from our experience, we recommend the following dosage:
- Noise, travel, or situational anxiety– Start with a full 1 mL dropper (9 mg CBD) before the triggering event. Wait 15-20 minutes and if your pet is still anxious, administer another 1 mL dropper of tincture (9 mg CBD) until you see results.
- General anxiety –Start with a daily dose of at least 1 mL (9 mg). If you don’t notice a difference within one to two weeks, increase the dosage to 15 – 25 mg daily.
Split the amount of mg into small portions throughout the day (micro-dosing) for best absorption and to keep it in the bloodstream. The medicine peaks at 2 hours and is gone from 4-6 hours.
Unlike many traditional oral medications, research has proven that CBD is effectively and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. A study conducted by the Department of Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel concluded that: “CBD was observed to have a large volume of distribution [in dogs studied].”In a study conducted by the Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy, dogs were found to have a substantial amount of receptors in their endocannabinoid system, specifically in the spine, which allows dogs to more effectively use CBD.
Your pet cannot overdose from CBD. If the dose is too high, they may become sleepy or experience diarrhea.
Each 1 mL dropper contains 28 mg of hemp seed oil, and 9 mg full spectrum extract (CBD). Each 2 oz bottle contains approximately 60 servings and 550 mg full spectrum extract (CBD). Dropper included. Shake well before use. Always clean the dropper after use to prevent contamination.
