Our chews are formulated to be “additive” - which means your pup can take the recommended daily dosage of each should he/she need more than one formulation.

Like all supplements, a regular daily chew regimen will give your pet the most benefit. Most dog owners see desired behavior and changes in their dogs in as little as a few days or weeks depending on use.

Why Give Your Dog CBD?

Here are some common health conditions dogs experience that CBD may help treat:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Inflammation
  • Joint pain
  • Dry skin
  • Dull coat & fur issues

CBD Dosing for Dogs

CBD has gained quite a bit of traction in recent years but is still new to many people and their pets. This is especially true when it comes to providing an accurate dose of CBD for dogs. As effective as CBD can be, it is crucial to remember that the amount you should administer varies widely from dog to dog. Appropriate dosage can depend on factors such as your dog’s weight or the condition you’re looking to treat. We'll go through the proper CBD dose for your dog as well as the benefits they can offer.

Giving your dog Green Gruff consistently at an early age proactively supports their health. Learn more about the benefits of CBD for dogs.

What's the Correct CBD Dose for Dogs?

This question is frequently asked and it is important to look at the pharmacokinetics of CBD Oil absorption in the dog to get some answers. CBD Oil is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream reaching peak blood levels in roughly 30 minutes. After that, CBD blood levels slowly decline and reach a lower level that shows the need for another dose at around 12 hours after the first.

Research in Osteoarthritis in dogs indicates that levels up to 2.5 mg/kg twice a day have shown benefit in many dogs. Lower doses, however, are often beneficial as well so the adage "start low and go slow" is commonly applied when initially dosing CBD for dogs, though higher initial doses may be necessary.

"I recommend starting in the range of 0.5 mg/kg twice daily and maintaining that dose for at least two days prior to increasing. I have however found times when it is perhaps best to go to a higher dose right away, such as when the dog's pain or anxiety is high," says Dr. Jeff Powers, Chief Veterinary Officer at Green Gruff. "Rarely dogs will experience sedation at higher doses so it does take some time to find the right dose, I believe you are at the right dose when you see your pet having mild calmness about a half-hour after administration (at a time when the peak blood level is reached)."

CBD has been shown to also reduce inflammation in skin conditions, and may perhaps affect cannabinoid receptors that increase in inflamed skin. Products that contain novel protein sources such as cricket protein may be beneficial, especially in dogs that have a food allergy to common feed ingredients such as chicken or beef in flavored CBD chews.
