As you can see in general cats will need far smaller CBD dosage sizes than dogs need. The main reason is CBD dosage is primarily based on body weight. So in order to find out the amount of CBD you should give your cat, you must weigh it. Getting the exact weight is important. If you are off by 5LBS it could mean the difference between giving your cat too little CBD or too much CBD. You want to give your cat just the right amount of CBD, this is known as the “optimal dose”. Continue reading to find how to determine your cats optimum CBD dosage size.

In general, you would give a chihuahua between 1.5 and 3.5mg of CBD. On the other hand, in general, you would give an English Mastiff between 80 and 125mg of CBD. With such a wide range of dosing sizes, it is important to know your pet’s optimum dose and measure the CBD out properly. Continue reading to see how you can find your dogs optimal CBD dosage size.
Remember these are just recommendations and starting point suggestions. If you find you get the same desired effect from less CBD than you can reduce the dose. Similarly, if you think your cat needs an even stronger dose than suggested you can gradually increase the amount until you get the effect you want.
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.

How Long Does CBD Last For?
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.
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.
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.
In many cases, your pet will tell you if it’s time for more. You’ll notice they’re having symptoms again, and you can come to the rescue with a dropper or a biscuit. They’ll be grateful when you do!
