With our CBD Oil for Dogs by incr-edibles, we have chosen both the strength and the type of CBD product used after some careful consideration. We have done this to ensure your dog's welfare is never in question. We chose the CBD type (CBD Isolate) on the undertaking that it contains no THC. The product's CBD strength of 1mg per drop is ideal for calculating exact, accurate dosages.
Why we chose this particular type of CBD
There were 3 main types of CBD we could have opted for when we chose to make this CBD product.
Those options are:
99% Pure CBD Isolate - (No THC contained)
Broad Spectrum CBD - (Can contain some THC)
Full Spectrum CBD - (Contains THC within UK legal limit)
We chose to go with the first option, a 99% Pure CBD Isolate product which has no THC contained. The CBD product used in making our premium quality CBD Oil for Dogs is a high-quality American CBD. This CBD is manufactured in line with Good Manufacturing Practices and is a food-grade product. It is the same CBD Isolate we use when making CBD Oil products for humans and, in our opinion, is the best choice of CBD for your dogs.
We have chosen this over the other two forms of CBD listed because it has no THC contained in it. THC is the compound within the hemp/cannabis plant responsible for getting people "high" or "stoned." THC is not a compound we would like to see given to your animals in any quantity, so the decision was easy. The CBD we are using will still help deliver benefits to your dog, so we don't see the need to take unnecessary risks, jeopardise your dog's health, or have any extreme side effects. We want our CBD products to provide your pets with the maximum amount of benefit and care that we can.
Why we chose this strength of CBD Oil for Dogs
The reason that we have decided to use this strength (concentration) of CBD for this product is a fairly straightforward one. These 30ml bottles of CBD oil contain approximately 600 drops. As such, we created this product to contain 600mg of CBD in total. This concentration means that each drop will give your dog 1 mg of CBD.
How much CBD Oil drops should I give to my dog?
Below are our CBD Oil for Dogs dosing suggestions:
Small Dog Breeds - not exceeding 25lbs
Medium-sized Dog Breeds - 25lbs - 55lbs
Large Dog Breeds - exceeding 55lbs
3mg CBD (3 drops) per serving
6mg CBD (6 drops) per serving
10mg CBD (10 drops) per serving
If you feel that your dog needs a 2nd serving of CBD within a 24-hour period please ensure that there is a period of at least 6 hours between dosing. If you need further assistance in regards to this please contact us to discuss your situation.
"In all instances, if your dog is already on any other type of medication we would urge that you discuss your intention to give your dog CBD with your vet first to avoid any contraindications or problematic side effects. We would advise this for all pet owners who are considering CBD as an option for their pets."
How to give CBD oil drops to your Dog
Just add to normal dog food or treats
There are various ways in which you can administer CBD to your dog. The easiest option is to just add it in with the dogs food at feeding time. Another option would be to take a dog biscuit or dog treat and just drop the required amount of CBD onto it.
Fixed dose CBD Dog Treats
As an alternative to CBD oil we have created our own range of Incr-edibles CBD Dog Treats in suitable strengths for all dog sizes. We have our 3mg CBD Dog Treats for small dogs, our 6mg CBD Dog Treats for medium-sized dogs and our 10mg CBD Dog Treats for large dogs. These treats are made with our Banana and Peanut butter recipe. Whichever product you choose to give to your dog we sincerely hope that our products will provide the benefits you want for your pets.
Hemp Oil v's CBD oil for pets
Don't be caught out with the wrong product
We would prefer not to have to mention this particular topic but it crops up too often for us to ignore. Please be advised that CBD oil and Hemp oils are generally 2 completely different products. While CBD for pets are recognised and known for providing many health benefits Hemp oils are no more that just oils pressed from hemp plant and seeds and will not provide any kind of pain relief or have any similar effects. They have virtually none of the benefits of CBD products and will only derive benefits similar to giving your dog Omega oil or the like. These products are being sold and often marketed at pet owners by unscrupulous companies looking to benefit from the misunderstandings of the products. We would advise you to ignore any product that does not specifically state that it is CBD when looking to use CBD products for your pets.
These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Glassware that preserves
There was no point in us sourcing such great CBD and not using the best possible glassware to preserve it in. With this in mind, we have used a specially designed bottle to protect the products we sell. This glassware is biophotonic and prevents harmful rays from negatively affecting the CBD. Bottles and jars made with this type of glass are highly effective at preserving food products.
Additionally, we also include graduated pipettes with all of our 30ml bottles. These will help you deliver consistent, accurate dosing every time you use our CBD & CBG oils.
We have put together this guide to ensure that you accurately provide the best CBD oil dosage for your dog based on its needs. Alternatively, you may want to understand the best practice and delivery methods for using this product.
Drops per Bottle………..….600
mg per product……..….600mg
mg per drop………..………1mg
As you can see from the above information, the mg per drop of this product is 1mg.
Suggested starting dosages
Here at Incr-edibles, we suggest the following starting dosage amounts based on the size of your dog.
Small Dogs……….…….3 Drops
Medium-Sized Dogs…..6 Drops
Large Dogs…..………..10 Drops
Once administered, keep a close eye on your dogs' behavior and note any changes. Stick to these dosage amounts for the first three days while the CBD tops up in the dog's body.
Increasing the dose
If you see no change in your dogs' behavior or improvement in their pain or condition after three days, try increasing the dose by one drop. Continue with this for another 2-3 days and rise again by another drop if necessary until you see improvements.
If the dosage increase amounts result in a doubling of the initial 3, 6, or 10mg starting dosages we suggest, it may be best to consider giving your dog two separate servings over the day instead of one. For example, provide a small dog 2 x 3mg servings instead of one 6mg serving.
Administering the CBD
The best way to maximise the efficacy of CBD is to place it under the tongue. However, this is not always straightforward where dogs are concerned. With this in mind, you can add the desired amount of oil to the dogs' favourite treats. Alternatively, you can easily arrange to apply it to their everyday meals.
Dogs on Prescribed medication
If you consider starting your dog on any CBD product, we recommend discussing this with your vet, mainly if you are currently receiving prescribed medicines for your dog.
