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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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!
There is no right or wrong time to give your dog CBD. If you have your CBD dose for dogs, is completely up to you. You and your pet have a unique relationship and schedule. Incorporate CBD whenever it best suits you. Experiment with various times and record for best results.
One benefit of giving your dog CBD daily or weekly is it allows for observation. Consistency provides measurable results. Your pet’s needs may change over time and for that reason, our calculator will always be here for you, but adding CBD to the routine allows you to observe what works for your dog and adjust as needed.

Should I Give My Dog CBD Consistently?
The sole difference between these two oil types is THC and other content. Full spectrum CBD oil contains that legal, non-harmful 0.3% THC level. Broad spectrum or (THC-non-detect) means there is a non-detectable THC level. Both are safe for pets. Full spectrum CBD however is considered the dominant formula because it contains other beneficial cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant.
CBD oil carries a broad array of holistic and therapeutic benefits that humans and pets alike can benefit from and enjoy. A dog’s endocannabinoid system naturally welcomes in cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Among the most beneficial qualities of using CBD for pets include helping reduce your pets stress levels and providing some degree of relief for joint or other discomfort.
