Yes, it’s legal to give your canine companion CBD! Here are a few common questions and answers to the legalities of giving your dog CBD Oil.
Is CBD Oil legal to give my dog?
CBD extracted from the hemp plant is legal across the U.S. All CBD products that come from hemp contain 0.3 percent THC or less.
What’s the best CBD oil for dogs?
First, make sure to go organic to ensure that you aren’t giving your dog pesticides or other toxic chemicals. Also, opt for a high quality CBD product that has a certificate of analysis. This means that a lab analysis was done and verifies the amount of CBD present. Using a tincture is the easiest way to give CBD to your dog. You can add the oil right to your dog’s food.
How long does it take CBD to work for dogs?
After adding CBD oil to your dog’s food or treats, it will take about 30 minutes for him to feel the positive effects. And if you are just beginning to use CBD for your dog, you will likely notice the benefits within 3–7 days. If you haven’t seen reduced symptoms with your initial dosage, slowly increase the dosage by 0.5 milligrams every 3 days until the symptoms improve.
