We deliver science-backed plant-based wellness right to your door with a few clicks. Get solutions supported by real human customer service and a guarantee that if you don't see results, you don't pay.

Proper CBD Dosing For Your Pet’s Size
Pets aren't people; they have a massive range in size and weight. You would never want to give a CBD product designed for people to a 2lb chihuahua, and a product intended for birds most likely won't be strong enough to work for horses.
Our pet CBD dosage is based on research, but that doesn't mean it's complicated to figure out. Pick a product based on your pet's weight, then use the dosage table printed on the label to find our recommended dosage range.
We suggest you start low and increase every few days until you see results. You can give CBD to your pets as often as every 8 hours for continued support, or only whenever needed for things like fireworks anxiety.
CBD oils placed in your pet's mouth can start working in as little as 20 minutes, but CBD that is ingested, like treats, chews, or oil placed in food, can take an hour and a half to work. The effects of CBD have been shown to increase with continued use over weeks, months, or even years.
A higher dosage of CBD for pets is required when it's digested than if it's absorbed through the mouth; this is why our CBD treats are more concentrated than our CBD oils.
CBD Product Types For Your Pet
In 2022, finding the right CBD product for your pets is way harder than it should be, especially considering the amount of research that is easily accessible online for free. Here are the key things to be aware of to ensure you make the best choice for your fur family.
The first is to remember that CBD and the other cannabinoids in hemp are the stars of the show. While additional ingredients, even science-backed ones, may add some benefit. CBD has been the focus of far more research than any of them in recent years, and for a good reason. So if you want to help your animals with CBD, you need to get an effective amount of it into their system, regardless of the issue you are targeting.
CBD oil has the highest absorption rate, but only if it's absorbed through the walls of the mouth or under the tongue. Otherwise, if it makes it to the stomach, only about a fifth of it is available for use. From our experiences and customers, we know that this isn't always possible, especially with nervous dogs or cats.
That leads us to ingestible CBD products, like treats, chews, or CBD oil placed on food. As mentioned previously, only about a fifth of it can be used after digestion, so the dosage needs to be adjusted to make up for this. Otherwise, you are far less likely to encounter the benefits so frequently regurgitated from studies regarding CBD.
Topical CBD products run into a similar issue; while CBD can be absorbed topically, you would likely have more success treating the same problem with CBD oil or concentrated CBD treats and adding additional topical support.
Taking all of this into account, if it's possible, we recommend CBD oil placed in the mouth. If not, we suggest giving our two-ingredient treats a try; the dosage is three times stronger than our CBD oils, and they are really easy to use and dose, even for the fussiest of pets. We make them in a huge range of strengths, to account for the huge range in weight of animals.
If you want to add additional targeted support, we make chews packed with science-backed ingredients targeting mobility issues, anxiety, or skin problems. They are 100% human grade but contain a lower amount of CBD so that they can be taken alongside our oils or treats.
CBD Benefits For Pets
CBD is similar in structure to substances produced naturally by our pets, giving it the ability to interact with their central and peripheral nervous systems. This interaction gives it the ability to benefit pets and people.
But before we get into the benefits, it's important to get your pet diagnosed at the vet, especially for serious health issues. They are qualified to advise on treatment and can help you decide if that should involve CBD.
Here's a list of the possible benefits of CBD for pets, which have been demonstrated in both human and animal research to date:
- Decrease feelings of pain (mainly chronic)
- Influence frequency and severity of some types of convulsions or seizures
- Decrease certain types of anxiety and aggression
- Reduce feelings of Nausea
- Influence growth of certain tumors
- Support immune system
- cardiovascular system support
- Lower Inflammatory Response
Is It Safe?
CBD is incredibly safe; statistically, you are taking a far bigger risk by giving your pets an over-the-counter pain medication than you are with CBD.
While side effects are possible, they are reversible by reducing the dose, and they aren’t severe. Generally, it’s safe to say that the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Smaller animals are more sensitive to cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, so more caution is needed.
When developing our products for small animals, we took this into account, ensuring that it wouldn’t be possible to consume enough to cause issues. We also don’t include THC in our products, bringing safety to another level.
