You’ll be happy to know that the full effects of a CBD oil treatment can be experienced by your pet within about 1 – 2 hours after administration. While CBD can begin to work within 15 minutes after dosage, the full benefit of the treatment may take up to two hours.
A good rule of thumb is to begin your pet’s CBD dosage by offering them .2mg of CBD oil per pound of body weight. Thus, if your pet weighs 10 pounds, you would give them a dosage of 2mg of CBD oil.
CBD can be extracted from the hemp plant as isolate, broad spectrum or full spectrum oil. In an isolate, only CBD has been extracted; no other plant parts are present. In broad spectrum, THC has been removed, though this process can partially remove other cannabinoids like CBC, CBG and CBN. In a full spectrum oil, CBD along with all the other cannabinoids and phytonutrients present in the plant have been extracted. When the beneficial molecules of the hemp plant have been extracted in a full spectrum oil, they are able to work together synergistically to produce the maximum benefit to your pet that CBD can offer. This congruence of plant products is referred to as the “ entourage effect .”

CBD can be beneficial to your pet for multiple reasons. It’s safe and all-natural, and can help a restless pet to relax and remain calm. CBD can help support your pet’s brain and joint health, giving them an overall wellness benefit that can help them live healthier, happier lives.

What Are The Health Benefits of CBD?
Cannabidiol, or “CBD” is a plant-based compound found in the flowers of certain varieties of the cannabis sativa plant. This plant is grown in numerous variations, including those that produce marijuana. The species that CBD is extracted from is commercially grown hemp.
What Is The Right Dosage Amount for Dogs?
In order for your dog to receive the maximum benefit of CBD, your dog’s CBD oil must be in “full-spectrum” form. CBD oil is generally distributed in three different ways: isolate oil, broad-spectrum oil, and full-spectrum oil. The two most popular oils found in pet products are isolate oil and full-spectrum oil. Isolate oil only contains CBD; no other parts of the hemp plant are extracted with this oil. As such, this oil cannot provide maximum benefit to your dog, or give them what is called the “entourage effect.” The entourage effect refers to all parts of the hemp plant working together synergistically in CBD oil to yield the highest return of benefit.
