CBD Oil is the Best Method of Delivery
There are a variety of different types of CBD products for your pet in the marketplace. Chewys, dog bisquits, pills and lotions make up a wide selection of consumables that can deliver CBD to your pet. A recent study at the Universty of Colarado found that when administered by oil, CBD maintained the highest concentration in the blood, stayed in the bloodstream the longest, and performed the most consistently across different dogs.
Start with Small Doses of CBD Oil
Similar to humans, when you begin to use CBD for your pet you want to start off with small doses and gradually build up to larger doses and concentrations as your needs dictate. Sensitivity to CBD will vary from pet to pet based on the number of receptors they have in the central and peripheral nervous systems and each pet is different.
