Why is it so challenging to find the right dosage?

TINCTURES ARE NOT THE SAME

CBD Tinctures (a.k.a. CBD Oil) vary in size and potency. The size of a tincture is typically 15 mL to 30 mL. The potency can range from 50mg to 500mg of CBD. Since tinctures are not the same size and potency, it's hard to know how many droppers your dog needs. 

WHAT'S YOUR DOG'S WEIGHT?

In order to find the proper dosage for your dog, it's essential to consider your dog's weight. The amount of CBD needed for a 10 lb. Chihuahua is significantly different from the English Mastiff in Sandlot.

We've developed a comprehensive dosage calculator which will help you find two things.

  2. It will tell you how many full droppers to give your dog to reach the recommended milligrams. 

You will need to have the CBD tincture on-hand so you can enter the size and amount of CBD in the bottle. This will help to give the proper result. 

It's important to note that the recommended amount may not be enough to receive the desired results. The calculator gives you the average amount of CBD for your dog.

How do I get my dog to ingest the CBD oil?

Now that you've got the recommended dosage, you need to figure out the best way to get your dog to ingest the CBD oil. Most dogs aren't excited to consume substances other than treats. We've compiled a list of the most popular ways dog owners administer CBD oil.

  1. Drop the oil right into your dog's mouth (under the tongue if possible). This method might not be the easiest but it is the most effective because the CBD will be absorbed and enter the bloodstream quickly. We've also heard of dog owners that squirt the CBD under the dog's tongue, then giving them a treat right after.
  2. Add the CBD oil to dry dog food or treats. This method is the easiest because you can easily measure out the right dose and squirt it on the food or treats. Most dogs won't realize the difference when a small amount of CBD oil is added to the food or treats.
  3. Mix the CBD oil in wet dog food or treats. This method is also effective but we've found that some dogs will notice the oil and avoid the wet food or treats. If you plan to add CBD oil to wet dog food, you have to mix it thoroughly. If you don't, your dog might realize because the consistency will differ.
