Due to the numerous health benefits of CBD, it is trending in most parts of the world. People are using it as medicine while some others as a dietary supplement. Recently, studies have found that CBD is effective in humans due to the positive interaction with endocannabinoid receptors. Since humans and some animals like dogs and cats are having similar endocannabinoid systems, some manufacturers are now offering veterinary CBD products in the market.
Even though CBD is effective in pets, it is very hard to find the proper dosage. The optimum dosage of CBD for pets is also calculated similar to that of humans, that is, by considering their weight and also the severity of the condition that is intended to treat with CBD. The following is a guide to new pet owners who are planning to provide CBD to their pets.
From the reviews and feedbacks collected from the pet owners who are already giving CBD to their pets, it is found that the normal dosage of CBD for pets is almost 0.25mg/lb. If you are giving CBD to your pets in this proportion it will help them to overcome most of the minor discomforts. It will also help in reducing mild nervousness and will help in making them more relaxed. This dosage is also ideal for promoting appetite. In short, it will help in the overall general wellness of your dogs and cats.
As per the reports, 10mg/ lb. of CBD is considered a normal dose for humans. But for pets, more than 5mg/lb is strong enough to provide them all the benefits of CBD. Above this limit, it is considered an overdose and will exhibit many problems like dizziness in pets. If you are giving CBD in the prescribed proportion to pets, it will help them to manage their pain and also in faster recovery from problems caused by inflammation. It will also help in the proper functioning of the digestive system.
If you are planning to give your pets CBD for the first time, keep these things in mind because it will help you in administering the dosage properly. If your dogs and pets are having only minor discomforts, it would be better to follow the normal dosage and if the condition is intense, it is ideal to give CBD in a strong dose.
