How much CBD does my pet need?


Cannimal is proud to provide animal lovers a safe, reliable source of relief for their furry friends. 

We are here to celebrate the love and joy our animal friends bring to our lives by providing animal owners and friends access to safe, reliable, and potent medicine.

Cannimal does NOT condone giving animals high doses of THC or getting them "high."

Please dose your animal friends responsibly.  

Dosing is one of the most common questions- here at Cannimal we recommend you always "titrate up"- meaning start with the lowest recommended dose and go up from there based on observation of your pet's response.

Every dog will have a unique endocannabinoid system- essentially, one dog who weighs 20 pounds may need 2-3x more than another dog who weighs 20 pounds! This is why close observation and consistent dosing is extremely important when supplementing a pet with CBD.

The chart below is a general recommendation chart.. your animal may need more or less depending on their ailment.

5 Keys to Successfully Dosing Cannimal's CBD Formulas

Start with a low dose- for small dogs under 40 pounds start with 1 pump twice a day of our 150mg formulas. For larger dogs, start with 2 pumps twice a day of our 250mg formula. 


Apply directly in mouth- placing CBD in food lowers it's bioavailability. Use our pump bottle to administer directly in mouth or let them lick out of a bowl.


Observe- keep a close eye on your animal's reaction. Wait 30 minutes. If he/she seems to have no relaxation response, administer a 2nd dose. Chronic conditions such as pain and inflammation may take up to 7 days of consistent administration before you see improved mobility.


Be consistent - for best results administer Cannimal CBD formulas everyday at the same time. 


Take an active role in your animal's healing- watch for signs of improvement and titrate up or down based on your observations. *Remember no 2 animals are the same. CBD is not a pharmaceutical drug created to produce a "generic" response. CBD works with the Endocannabinoid System- which may need more or less activation on a daily basis based on its current state of "homeostasis." Learn more about the Endocannabinoid System here.
