How much CBD should my Dog take?

Depending on the size of your pet we recommend the strengths below, Always start with a low dose of 2.5mg and increase daily by 2.5 to 5ml. Until you find your furry baby's “purrfect sweet” spot. Don’t stress, you cannot overdose with CBD, too little will not have the full medicinal benefits and is a waste of money, too much could make your furry baby sleepy and might give diarrhoea, if this happens simply go back to the dose you thought worked best. It takes time but you will see the rewards, keeping a journal helps, but ultimately only you can gauge their progress.


For pain, you’ll need to allow 2-4 weeks to see the best results. For anxiety, many small breeds (french bulldog) owners see results in as little as 30-60 minutes.

Be Prepared

If you foresee a stressful situation (a car trip, fireworks, thunderstorm, etc.) you might want to increase the dose by a few milligrams about an hour before the event. CBD takes at least 30 to 60 minutes to get into the system so take this into consideration and increase the dose in advance.
