How to Use CBD for Pets
There may be some trial and error in finding the right dosage for pets. Start with a low dose of 1ml per 5kg of body weight and go up to 5 milligrams per 5 kg of body weight if needed. A higher dose may be necessary for some ailments. A low dose 3-4 times a day is usually more therapeutic than one large dose.
