How much CBD does my animal 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.

Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system. This system of receptors is all over the body- but most are in the brain, gut, and skin. This system regulates homeostasis or "balance" in the body.

The endocannabinoid system may be "activated" differently at different times- and can vary from animal to animal. Please keep in mind: every animal will have a unique endocannabinoid system- ie. 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. 

Our 150mg product is appx 2.5 mg per pump.

Our 250mg product is appx 5mg per pump.

Our 2000mg Equine product is appx 40mg per ml. 


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. 

Cannimal does not use glass droppers. WHY? Glass droppers can break in the mouth and also run the risk of cross contamination of your very valuable investment.


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.
