CBD FOR DOGS
DAILY DOSE FOR DOGS
Let's take Applied Basic Science, based in Colorado, and use their C.H.O. PET canine tincture as an example of how to calculate a daily dose and administer it to your dog. C.H.O. PE is a cbd-infused tincture for dogs that comes as a liquid in a 15ml bottle. It is manufactured and sold by ABSC and can be bought online at appliedbasicscience.com. C.H.O. PET is named after the full-spectrum Colorado Hemp Oil they use.
There are 600mg of cbd in a 15ml bottle of C.H.O. PET as stated on the label.
600/15 = 40mg cbd per ml
a 20mg dose =0.5ml (this is the daily dose on the label)
10mg dose=0.25ml (half the daily dose is given 2x a day)
0.25ml dose = 5 drops (measure with eyedropper)
-- so give your dog 5 drops on their food 2x a day
-- if each dose is 0.025ml, then a 15ml bottle = a 1 month supply
As with people, an interesting point that keeps coming up is that the beneficial effect of cbd for dogs that really need relief comes at higher dose levels. So start low, say 5mg cbd per day, and increase gradually until you hit the sweet spot for your dog which can be up to 100 mg a day for a large dog with compromised health.
