CBD oil for dogs

This article will cover a few important issues that all dog lovers should know about when it comes to CBD. We’ll be chatting about: 

  • The endocannabinoid system 
  • Proven and potential benefits of CBD oil
  • Choosing the right CBD oil
  • Safety
  • Dosage

The endocannabinoid system:

So firstly, let’s talk about the endocannabinoid system.

You and your dog have something in common: you both have an endocannabinoid system. This system affects your brain, skin, heart, eyes, stomach – and even your mood. Similarly, your dog’s endocannabinoid system affects their whole body, too. 

Cannabinoids are found in cannabis and plants related to cannabis, like hemp. Our bodies make their own cannabinoids, too! As the name implies, cannabinoids affect your endocannabinoid system. This is why cannabis has such a wide range of effects on the body. 

This is true for humans, but also for all other mammals – including dogs. 

One of the cannabinoids that is particularly prevalent in cannabis is cannabidiol, also known as CBD:

  • The endocannabinoid system is found in humans and dogs
  • It affects many parts of your body and its functions – including your brain, skin, heart, eyes, stomach – and even your mood
  • The endocannabinoid system is affected by cannabinoids, which are found in cannabis plants and hemp plants
  • This is why cannabis has a wide range of effects on your body
  • One of these cannabinoids is cannabidiol, known as CBD

Possible benefits of CBD oil for dogs

Recent studies have shown that CBD is particularly beneficial for dogs. How so? Well, it reduces anxiety, seizures, pain, and inflammation in dogs, and it can also improve skin conditions. This is according to a few recent papers. 

CBD might have even more benefits for dogs. In humans, it’s shown to treat depression, appetite loss, glaucoma, sleeplessness, and more. Now, because humans and dogs seem to be affected by CBD in similar ways, many scientists are trying to figure out if dogs can also benefit from CBD in the above-mentioned ways. As we speak, more research is being conducted on the benefits of CBD for dogs. In time, science will show us the full potential of CBD.

Benefits of CBD oil for dogs:

  • Anxiety
  • Seizures
  • Pain and inflammation
  • Skin conditions

Other potential benefits of CBD oil for dogs:

  • Depression
  • Appetite loss
  • Glaucoma
  • Sleeplessness

Choosing the right CBD oil for your dog

When it comes to giving your dog CBD, there are a few things you should know about choosing the best CBD products. 

Firstly, always make sure you’re giving your dog quality CBD oil. Now, there are many companies out there that sell CBD oil for dogs, but only some sell quality products. They should have papers that verify that their products have been tested. It’s also always a good idea to check out online reviews to help you figure out if a company delivers on their promises!

The best CBD oil for dogs is ‘full-spectrum CBD oil’. This is better than something called ‘CBD isolate’. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains trace amounts of other beneficial cannabinoids, which work to boost the effect of CBD oil. Most veterinarians recommend full-spectrum CBD oil for dogs, rather than CBD isolate.

Oh – and remember that CBD oil and hemp oil isn’t exactly the same thing. If a product says it’s hemp oil but doesn’t mention CBD, you won’t get all the benefits of CBD. The packaging should state exactly how many milligrams of CBD there is in the bottle. You’ll find that the price will be higher depending on how much CBD is in the bottle.

You can also find high-quality dog treats or capsules that contain CBD. They should also state how many milligrams of CBD there is in one treat or one capsule.

Bottom Line:

  • Quality is important! Ask if their products have been tested
  • Full spectrum CBD oil is better than CBD isolate
  • Contains more beneficial cannabinoids
  • This means it works better
  • Recommended by most veterinarians
  • Hemp oil is NOT the same as CBD oil, although some CBD oils might come from hemp
  • Look for the word ‘CBD’ on the bottle
  • It should say how much CBD is in the bottle in milligrams
  • CBD treats and capsules

Not sure what is the best product for your dog ailments? Take your quick quiz.

Is CBD oil safe for my dog?

Great question. In short, yes.

Numerous studies and research papers have shown that CBD is safe for dogs. The only real side-effect is drowsiness – so your dog might get a little sleepy.

And while we’re on this topic, CBD can’t get your dog high. While other cannabinoids, such as THC, are intoxicating, CBD is not. 

Of course, cannabis itself isn’t safe for dogs. So, while you can give your dog CBD oil and treats, keep them away from cannabis plants. 

And yes, CBD oil that is derived from hemp is legal pretty much everywhere. CBD is found in both hemp and cannabis, and while cannabis isn’t legal everywhere, hemp is. So, hemp-derived CBD oil is perfectly legal for both you and your dog to enjoy!

Bottom Line:

  • Yes!
  • This has been proven by research.
  • Side effects include sleepiness.
  • It can’t get your dog high as it’s not intoxicating.
  • Cannabis itself, however, isn’t safe for dogs.
  • Hemp CBD oil is legal.

Giving your dog the right dosage    

Now we’ll discuss dosage.

It’s essential that you ensure you have the right dosage of CBD oil for your dog. Most CBD oil merchants have a dosage chart on their website. You can also check out our website,, for a dosage chart.

If in doubt, ask a holistic veterinarian. If you’ve been prescribed CBD by a veterinarian, they should tell you how much CBD to give your dog each day. They might prescribe the dosage in droplets or in milligrams. 

Generally, you want to start with a small dosage and gradually increase it if necessary.

Remember that the amount of CBD per droplet depends on the concentration of CBD in the liquid. This amount changes per brand and per product. Let’s say you have a 30ml bottle of oil, and it contains 1500 milligrams of CBD. One milliliter of oil will contain 50 milligrams of CBD because 1500 divided by 30 = 50. So if you want to give your dog 25mg of CBD when he gets anxious, use half a milliliter of tincture. 

CBD can be incredibly useful for dog owners all over the world, as it truly has wonderful benefits for our furry friends.

If in doubt, talk to a veterinarian. there are plenty of great CBD products for your pets – you just need to know where to find them. Check out the DogDreamCBD quick quiz to find the best CBD products for your dog.
