how long before cbd takes effect in dogs

When your dog ingests CBD oil, it links to receptors within the ECS, helping to maintain homeostasis, fight off infections, and regulate the functions above. In doing so, CBD oil helps provide relief from pain, anxiety, seizures, digestive upset, and more.

While the current research is based on human studies, dogs and people have a remarkably similar system for processing CBD. Therefore these studies can help us estimate just how long the effects of CBD stay with our dogs.

Most CBD oils contain trace amounts (0.3% or less) of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for marijuana’s “high.” While this is not enough to have an intoxicating effect on your dog, THC is temporarily stored in the organs and fatty tissues of the body.

THC in the kidneys could potentially be reabsorbed into the bloodstream, causing a compounding effect. For this reason, it is important to choose a CBD oil for dogs that is 100% free of THC like Cannanine™ Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oil from Hemp.

When you think of cannabis, you probably think about marijuana, which contains THC, a chemical that makes you feel high. Hemp is a different strain of cannabis that contains very low levels of THC but high levels of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a compound that can offer many health benefits. While CBD oil can also be made from marijuana, it usually contains trace amounts of THC. THC can be toxic for dogs. CBD oil made from hemp contains no THC.

Both humans and dogs have what’s called an endocannabinoid system, which is composed of cannabinoid receptor sites. These receptor sites are found throughout the brain, nervous system, and immune cells. That means all sorts of different body functions can be affected by the additions of cannabinoids like the type found in CBD oil.

For anxiety problems, CBD oil typically can start to calm your dog within 30-60 minutes.

What is CBD oil?

The most potent and cost effective method. Cannanine hemp oil is great for dogs experiencing ongoing issues with mobility, a sense of calm and allergies.

Cannanine™ Organic Full Spectrum CBD Oil from Hemp contains no THC, which means your dog can get all the benefits of CBD oil without any worries about your dog getting “high.” It features patented Nano-Sized Microemulsion for maximum bioavailability and absorbability (4x smaller particles compared to Liposomal emulsion) and is made from organic hemp made in Colorado. Made from human-grade ingredients, it’s been tested and found to be free of heavy metals, harmful bacteria, yeast, mold, and other toxins.

Every dog responds differently to CBD oil, and we encourage you to start slow and start small. Always observe your dog after giving them a new supplement for the first time. In general, here’s a rule of thumb:

This is a tricky question to answer since there are many factors involved in finding the most therapeutic dose of CBD for your dog. It can also depend on what condition you are using the CBD oil to help with. There is NOT always an immediate, drastic effect.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Use our handy CBD Dosage Chart to find the perfect amount for your pup!

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!
