When considering a CBD product for your dog, the following information may be helpful, beginning with a review of the proper dosage.
CBD Dosing Recommendations
Many pet-specific CBD products on the market have dosing recommendations that are below a therapeutic dosage. Note the broad-spectrum hemp extract used in Joy Organics hemp dog treats contains many of the naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and other phytonutrients in the hemp plant.
DOSING FOR PETS
The general rule is 2-3 mg CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight.
CBD generally helps improve anxiety within a day or two, but some dogs may need to take it for one to two weeks before experiencing relief.
Be observant. Here are a few potential side effects of too much CBD in dogs: Stop using CBD on your dog if you notice any of these symptoms.
- Lethargy or Lack of Energy all of a sudden
- Urinary Incontinence
- Overwhelming Sensations
- Excessive Drooling
While more studies are needed, hemp extract is not known to interact with pharmaceuticals. However, increase slowly if your dog is taking drugs that increase serotonin, such as trazodone or SSRIs (Prozac or other anti-depressants). When people or animals take more than one drug or supplement that increases serotonin, a condition called serotonin syndrome may result. This has not been documented with CBD use but is theoretically possible.Joy Organics Pet Products

Ensure that the product you are buying is sourced from organically grown hemp plants. Pesticide residue, especially for small dogs, should be avoided. Ensure the manufacturer can provide a certificate of analysis of each batch, proving its concentration and purity.

I recommend not giving your dog THC. However. ensure the product you are using contains less than 0.3% THC. Dogs are extremely sensitive to THC and ingestion may worsen their anxiety symptoms.
