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.
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.
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.
For both dogs and cats, a good rule of thumb is to start with 1-2mg for every 10 pounds of weight.
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.
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.
Use our handy CBD Dosage Chart to find the perfect amount for your pup!
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!
When discussing your dog’s treatment plan with your vet, make sure to include CBD in the conversation if you’re interested in using it or another cannabis product. CBD oil is one of the common food/supplements that can mess with CYP enzymes and their ability to metabolize certain prescription drugs. Like others, this usually occurs with higher than normal dosages. Most dogs with cancer respond well to CBD, and it fits into their treatment plan without any trouble or side effects of its own.
When dogs become cancer-free after fighting cancerous cells in their body, they enter a phase known as remission. The hope is that your dog will stay in remission for the rest of their lives. Now, just as CBD cannot treat cancer, CBD for dogs with cancer cannot prevent your dog’s body from growing cancerous cells in the future.
This is a moment in time where a seemingly positive effect of CBD turns into something inconvenient. But thankfully, this is an example of how the downsides of CBD oil for dogs with cancer are very minor. And it’s entirely preventable, too. Make sure you read the instructions and recommended dosing directions on the side of your CBD container for dogs. CBD dosages are based on body weight.
Is CBD Legal for Dogs?
Something that uncontrollably comes to mind when talking about CBD is the question of legality. Is CBD legal? And if so, are there parameters surrounding hemp oil for dogs? The last thing you’d want to do when trying to improve your dog’s quality of life is to break federal or state-level laws.
Besides our CBD oil, we have our dog treats, hemp-based creams, and capsules, great for help with loss of appetite and general health along with pain and inflammation.

Types of Cancer in Dogs
Published at: June 4, 2021
Let’s say you’re taking your dog in for a follow-up after a recent chemotherapy appointment, but your dog happens to get very anxious in doctor’s offices. So, to combat the anxiety on top of the pre-existing physical discomfort from the chemotherapy, you decide to administer the oil to your dog. If you miscalculate the dose and give too much CBD to your dog, your dog will end up walking into their appointment in a deep slumber.
Other common forms of cancer in dogs are mast cell tumors , bone cancer , and Hemangiosarcoma (a kind of cancer found in the heart or spleen).
Signs Your Dog Might Have Cancer
As vets legally cannot prescribe CBD as a treatment option for pain or illnesses in dogs, many owners are effectively going in blind when choosing to dose their animals.
Some studies have found that CBD can reduce saliva production for dogs, which makes them more thirsty. This is a mild side effect.
