A CBD capsule, in turn, will contain between 5-20 mg of CBD each. The dose of encapsulated CBD is around 1 tablet taken once or twice per day.
Not only will they taste better – imagine flavors like Chicken & Bacon or Roasted Duck – but they also come with a fixed CBD dose.
General CBD Dosage Guidelines For Dogs
There are three essential factors to take into consideration prior to buying CBD for your pet:
If your dog is suffering from pain, the starting CBD dose of 1 mg may be enough for the beginning.
The maximum dose of CBD for a dog of this size is about 20 mg per day.
Our Hemp CBD Gold Capsules contain 5 mg of CBD and 25mg of CBD per capsule each making them great for dogs 40 lbs and up. At this body weight level, most pet owners find raising the dosage in increments of 5 mg of CBD is effective and easily managed.
Here is the guideline to follow when giving Equine Hemp Pellets to your horse. 1 tablespoon equals 25 mg of CBD. Remember this is just a guideline and starting point. You will still need to trial and error with your horse or livestock as some only need a small amount of CBD while other larger animals may need a strong dose.
If they need a quicker onset of relief, we recommend the CBD hemp oil tincutre PurCBD+. The thin tissue of the mouth makes CBD readily absorbable into the bloodstream, and you’ll typically see CBD working within 10-30 minutes depending on how long your pet was able to hold the oil in their mouth.
How to Dose with CBD Capsules, Treats, Chews, and Pellets
As such, if your pet is on a dosage-sensitive prescription drug that’s metabolized in the liver, you’ll likely want to keep CBD dosages mild or low.

Dosing CBD oil doesn’t have to be confusing. In fact, some of the best advice we can offer is to monitor your pet’s reaction of how much CBD oil is given and to make adjustments accordingly. Unlike many drugs, there is little to worry about when increasing to a strong dose to a strong dose. Some pets react well to low doses of CBD, while others need a good bit more. We always recommend watching for side effects or abnormalities whenever changing dosages for dogs and cats, but if you see your pet reacting well to a stronger dose, there is nothing to be concerned about.
Finding the right CBD product for your dog or cat involves a lot more than just dosage. It will depoend on your pet’s body weight, what their preferences are, what they are being treated for, and other factors specific to your pet. In order to find the right CBD product for your pet, you’ll need to take all of this into consideration to factor in what give your dog.
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.
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?
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.
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.
