Frequently Asked Questions


Pet Dosing Questions

How much CBD to dose my pet?

The answer to this commonly asked question is – it depends! CBD for dogs and cats has dose requirements that rely on different factors like your pet’s weight and breed, as well as what illness you are trying to aid and its severity.
We always advise to start lower than the recommended dose and then slowly increasing it over the first week to the correct dose. Watch our video in case you want some more information on dosing CBD oil for pets.

Can my pet overdose on CBD?

Thankfully, it is extremely hard and rare to overdose your pet on CBD, as it is a natural supplement. If you stay within the recommended dose, your pet will be just fine. Your pet may have some side effects to the CBD product if they are just starting out, but nothing that would be too serious.
Since Ahimsa Pets CBD oil doesn’t have any THC, there is no toxic chemical to be weary of. We use only two natural ingredients – hemp oil and CBD.

What are possible side effects of giving CBD to my pet?

Most pets don’t react negatively to CBD. If they do, it’s usually in the beginning when they first start off using products such as CBD oil for dogs and cats.
Possible side effects include: drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, and dry mouth. None of these are immediately dangerous to your pet. However, if the symptoms continue overtime then definitely consult your veterinarian.

How to give CBD to my pet?

You can administer CBD to your pet in a couple different ways including CBD oil, CBD treats (chews), or CBD baked treats.
We recommend CBD oil for dogs and cats because it is absorbed the best and has been claimed to be the most effective way of the three.

How long after giving CBD to my pet until I see results?

After giving your pet CBD, the timeframe in which you can see results will vary. It depends on each individual pet because just like humans react differently to natural supplements, so too do pets.
It also depends on what you are using CBD for in your dogs and cats? Certain illnesses like anxiety may take longer to see effects than arthritis or pain. It can take some dogs and cats 20-30 mins to show initial results. We recommend using any CBD product for at least 3-4 weeks to see the true results of CBD for dogs and cats.

Can my pet take CBD with their current medication?

Since we can’t fully understand your pet’s medical history and what medications they’re exactly on, we recommend you consult your veterinarian to decide what’s best for your pet.

Pet CBD Questions

What does CBD stand for?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It’s a compound found in the Hemp plant that has recently been claimed to have positive health effects for pets and humans.

Where does CBD come from?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a compound found in the hemp plant which is a cousin to the marijuana plant. However, CBD sourced from hemp plants doesn’t contain THC so it has no “high” effect, only the positive health effects.

Can CBD get my pet high?

CBD from hemp plants cannot get your pet “high”. Hemp derived CBD does not contain THC which is the compound responsible for the “high” feeling. All of Ahimsa Pets CBD products are sourced from all-natural hemp plants containing 0% THC.

What does CBD help my dog or cat with?

CBD for dogs and cats can be very beneficial. It interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is present in all mammals including dogs and cats.
Some health conditions it can help with in your pet are: arthritis, joint pain, hip pain, noise anxiety, separation anxiety, seizures, skin/coat health, and more!  

What to look for when buying CBD for pets?

With the surge of popularity in CBD products, including the pet CBD market, there is a plethora of choices. But what makes the “right” choice? How do you know what you’re getting? Is it product safe?
Some things to look into before buying CBD for your dog or cat is the product’s COA, whether or not it is all-natural, what ingredients it’s made from, and some other factors we go into HERE.

What is a COA?

COA stands for Certificate of Analysis. It is a document that shows what substances are in the CBD product and if it’s safe for consumption. It’s usually created by a third party lab that did all the testing. See all of our COA’s HERE.

Does CBD go bad?

We recommend keeping CBD products refrigerated after opening to keep in the best condition for the longest time. However, if you want to store it somewhere else make sure it’s in room temperature and out of the sun light.
