CBD oil dosage

Most people have heard about the health benefits of CBD oil. CBD is used for helping reduce anxiety, depression, improve sleep, soothe pain, improve heart health, and the immune system. When it comes to helping the issue you are having it is important to know about doses. You will need to know the dosage to have in order to reap the benefits. Otherwise, it may not do anything to help you.

It can often be difficult to find out the exact dosage you need. Therefore, doing your research is imperative.

Most reviews say CBD oil is relatively safe to use. However, this is not to say people do not vary in reaction when using the product. People will often react in different ways. Most studies have shown that dosages should be between 20 and 1.5mg per day.

How to figure the amount for you

Here are the following factors to consider:

  • CBD concentration
  • How your body responds
  • What conditions you are treating
  • Bodyweight and size

These variables are imperative to understand before using CBD oil. Talking to a doctor would be beneficial just so you know you are safe and they can advise you on how much to take or even tell you if you need it or not. Always listen to your doctor as they often know what is best.

In regard to doses always start with the smallest dosage. You can always add but you cannot take away-it is better to start with a lower dosage. For example, start with 20-40mg and see what happens. If nothing happens then up your dosage but within small intervals. Stop upping the dosage once you feel it is working. Also, pay attention to the source of pain because one day you may need more than the next day. Always refer back to the variables above to help you as a guideline.

Additionally, keeping a diary of your dosages may be beneficial and help you keep track of how your body is feeling and how much you take day to day. Most CBD products have dosages one the side e.g 2 capsules per day. However, with oil, the product will come with a dropper. Read the packaging for further instructions. Normally it should tell you how much CBD is in a single drop.

Is it possible to take too much CBD? 

2011 review on the safety and side effects of CBD found that even in high doses like 1,500 mg a day the human body can tolerate it.

2017 updated source to this review also confirmed this. However, in a 2019 study done with mice, some concerns were raised and possible liver damage-interactions with other medications were shown.

Although the study was done with mice if you are currently taking medication and would like to try CBD, it’s essential to discuss this with your doctor first. Just to be safe.

Thanks to our easy-to-use plastic dropper, you can tailor your dogs or cats CBD routine specifically for them. It’s recommended to start with a lower amount and see how they react, gradually increasing as needed. For best results, maintain consistent use for at least 30 days before adjusting.

Why Choose cbdMD CBD Oil for Dogs and Cats?

Many companies make substandard products for pets since they don’t have the same health and safety regulations as human products. But at cbdMD, we know that your pets are part of your family and deserve the same quality ingredients that you do.

That’s why our CBD oil for dogs, cats, and horses contains the same Superior Broad Spectrum hemp extract that we use in our products for humans. The same USA farms that grow non-GMO hemp for our human products also provide it for our animal products. The same laboratory creates our proprietary blend of CBD with cannabinoids and terpenes that we send to a third-party ISO-certified lab to ensure that every batch meets our standards and matches our label.

We also use the same wholesome MCT oil as a medium for our CBD pet tinctures as with our CBD oil tinctures for people. That way, you know that your pet isn’t getting any unwanted chemicals or additives that you wouldn’t take. The only difference is that we create our pet tinctures with flavors and concentrations with animals’ needs in mind.

What’s the Difference Between CBD Oil for Dogs, CBD Oil for Cats, and CBD Oil for Horses?

As noted, the base ingredients are the same, but each animal has slightly different requirements.

  • Cats are, on average, the smallest of the three species, so our CBD oil for cats comes in the lowest range of concentrations at 150 mg or 300 mg of CBD formula per bottle. Because cats tend to be fussy about what they eat, we created a catnip-flavored CBD oil for cats that most cats will happily devour. But if your cat is in the minority that doesn’t care for catnip, our natural CBD oil, which has no added flavor, can be blended with your feline’s favorite food.
  • Dogs come in a broader range of sizes, so our CBD oil for dogs comes in five different concentrations from 150 mg to 3000 mg per bottle. We’ve noticed how much dogs love peanut butter, so all our CBD oil for dogs is available with pure peanut butter extract. However, there’s always a minority with different tastes, so try our unflavored natural CBD oil in all strengths as well.
  • Horses are the biggest of all, so our CBD oil for horses comes only at 5000 mg of CBD per bottle. We created an apple-flavored tincture for our equine friends to ensure that they’ll take their daily CBD with pleasure.

Because the basic formula is the same, if you have a small dog with a mysterious fondness for catnip, it wouldn’t hurt it to take a cat tincture. But in general, we formulated each product specially for the needs and tastes of each species, so it’s best to stick to the label.
