CBD for Dogs & Pets
CBD or PCR (Phytocannabinoid) is an oil that is extracted from hemp and contains beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes. PCR binds to receptors in the body’s endocannaboinoid system (ECS).
There are two main receptors in the body, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and when activated, play a role in memory processing, motor control and pain regulation. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system.
Our PCR is extracted from the whole plant and includes CBD, CBN and CBC plus terpenes and flavonoids.
Many pet insurers like PetPlan and Trupanion will cover the cost of CBD for your pet. Contact us for assistance!

How do I administer CBD?
The veterinarian formulated dog chews are 2 mg each and can be split in two for a 1 mg dose.
We give full disclosure on what’s in our tincture, the amount of CBD and the typical dosage for a pet (see dosing chart).
Please note that CBD can be given to your other pets as well..
Pet Dosing Chart
750 mg, 1 oz bottle has 750 drops per bottle. 1500 mg, 2 oz bottle has 1500 drops per bottle.
Give 1 drop for each 5 pounds of your pet’s body weight, twice per day.
For example, if you have a 20 pound pet, the dosing would be 4 drops in the morning and 4 drops in the evening.
Recent studies show that CBD is best given with food for maximum absorption. Blood levels can increase as much as 5 times when administered with food.
It can take 7-14 days for CBD to reach a steady level in your pet’s system.
Please note: The maximum amount of tincture that you can draw in the dropper is one half or about 25 drops.
These dosages have been recommended by Dr. Robert Silver, DVM
