Cannabidiol (CBD) is a recently developed health food concentrate that can alleviate certain discomforts by providing relief. CBD works the same for both humans and dogs, though dosages will vary. So it’s good for both of you and your dog. You can give your dog human CBD oil as long as the other ingredients in it are safe for dogs to consume. However, we recommend using pet intended CBD products for your dog to keep things simple. But, if you are out of your dog’s CBD and want to give them some of yours, here’s what you need to know.
Most commonly located in the various parts of the immune system, including the cells and organs.
What Effect Does Giving Human CBD Oil To Dogs Have On Them?
Even though CBD is an incredibly safe supplement, companies like Holistapet subject their products to rigorous testing.
CBD comes from the hemp plant. CBD oil comes from the flowers, stalks, leaves, and stems of the hemp plant. The hemp plant is a member of the cannabis family. Hemp plants have over 113 different phytocannabinoids. This includes tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the most widely known cannabis derivative.
Okay so let’s give an example to see how this would go. Let’s say I have a dog that weighs 20LBS and I have my CBD oil that is 0.5mg of CBD per drop of oil. I wish to give my dog a regular dose of CBD. This is how I would get the dosage size for my dog.
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.

How Long Does it Take CBD to Start Working?
Every dog and cat is different. They come in all shapes and sizes. That’s what we love about them! But it does mean that when it comes to CBD, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. It might take some experimenting to find the right amount to give your own fuzzballs. That’s okay—CBD is safe and natural, so no worries if your pet gets a little more or less than needed while you figure things out.
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.
