CBD Oil Dosage For Dogs (Control Dosing Using the Dropper)

There are many advantages to using a product that is an oil and administered to your pet via a dropper (or using some of our other administration techniques on the administration page).

  1. You have precise control over the dosing you provide to your pet.
  2. The delivery of cannabidiol via an oil using a dropper has been shown in research to be the most effective delivery method for stabilization.

Understanding the Dropper Unit of Measurements

Canis World 1000 Product Line

  • 1ml =    33.33 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .75ml = 25 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .5ml =   16.66 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .25m =    8.33 mg of active cannabinoids

Canis World 500 Product Line

  • 1ml =    16.66 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .75ml = 12.45 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .5ml =     8.33 mg of active cannabinoids
  • .25m =    4.15 mg of active cannabinoids


Relief Dosing

Initially dosing for relief care is approx. 1mg of CBD per lb for an initial 2-3 week period.

It is important to note that some pets that are older or may have more stiffness or more severe issues being addressed the dosing could be higher and tailored specifically for your pet.

When taking other vet pharma medications we advise to wait 2 hours after administering vet pharma being administering CBD.

If you have specific questions, just ask us and we will be happy to give you feedback and guidance.



Corrective Dosing

After 2-3 weeks pets enter corrective dosing.  In the second or third week of taking Canis World, there is a small scale back in the corrective dosing.  The corrective dosing is to simply reduce your initial relief dosing back by 5-10mg and observe.

You are observing to note if your pet is still achieving successful benefits for stiffness or mobility support etc.  Corrective dosing is administered for 2-3 weeks.

It is important to note that some pets stay on a relief dosing, some pets stay on corrective dosing and don’t scale down to a maintenance dosing.  There are variables that may impact the optimal dosing such as the age of your pet, activity level, the nature of the reason the Canis World supplement is being used, etc.

Every dog is NOT the same nor do they have the same needs which is yet another reason why Canis World products are optimal to give you ultimate control of ensuring your pet gets a quality product and dosing levels.

If you have specific questions, just ask us and we will be happy to give you feedback and guidance.







Maintenance Dosing

After 4-6 weeks on Canis World, some dogs are responding well and entering into maintenance dosing.  Maintenance dosing is .5mg of cannabinoids per pound of your dog’s body weight.

Again you observe the maintenance dosing. You are observing to note if your pet is still achieving successful benefits for stiffness or mobility support etc.

Some pets scale back up to corrective (or even relief dosing) while others thrive and have successful on maintenance dosing.  As a pet ages, you may likely increase the dosing.

If you have specific questions, just ask us and we will be happy to give you feedback and guidance.

Dosing Tips

Calculating the CBD oil dosage for dogs is easy because Canis World products are ALL 30ml which is 1 fluid ounce. This means there are approx. 29-30 full droppers in each bottle. To calculate the CBD dosage for dogs by weight, please reference our above guidelines. Be sure to review the administration page on delivering Canis World products to your dog.

When administering Canis World to your pet, our preferred route of administration is giving the product to your dog directly via their mouth. Allow your dog to investigate the dropper first to remove any apprehension. The second method of administration uses a paper plate and a dab of your pet’s favorite treat (peanut butter, cream cheese, etc.) with the selected dosage added on top for the dog to lick. They can still gain a nice absorption through the tissues in their mouth. Our last preferred method of administering Canis World is to take a small piece of bread and place the desired dosing onto the bread (the bread acts like a sponge to absorb).  You can then dab a little of your pets favorite treat onto the bread and give it as a little treat (shown in the above video).

Canis World has purposely elected to use hemp seed oil as the carrier oil for the cannabidiol (CBD), as it is more of a whole plant approach. We have also designed our products for optimal pet parent control with more precise dosing. Is canine CBD oil easier to administer with treats? It can be, but we don’t sell pet treats for several reasons…

Pet treats with CBD have other ingredients, sourced by vendors and plied with preservatives and additives. Quality and quality control issues can become problematic. At Canis World, we prefer to work farm to table, so to speak. By extracting the hemp seed oil and combining it with our cannabidiol, we can create a “whole plant” supplement that allows pet owners to see the quality for themselves. Our goal here at Canis World is to utilize the full benefits of the hemp plant by instilling best farming practices, quality control measures, and pet owner support. Ready to buy dog CBD oil?

Dosing Timeframes

Canis World Broad Spectrum Hemp extract with CBD is the same core foundation that was utilized in various research on cannabinoids and dogs.  The lifespan of cannabinoids in a pets system is a window of 4-6 hours (length can depend on dog age, size, activity level etc.)

Therefore when dosing your pet the ideal is to administer Canis World 2 to 3 times a day.

  • Relief dosing: optimal to dose 3 times a day.  For example: morning, end of so called business day and before bedtime.
  • Corrective dosing can be 2 to three times a day.
  • Maintenance dosing is 2 times a day.

As an example: If your dog weighed 75lbs, in relief dosing, you would be administering 70mg of Canis World per day. 25mg in the morning, 25 mg late afternoon (end of business day) and 25 mg around bedtime.  If using Canis World 1000 product that you be .75ml of a dropper given 3 times a day.

Dosing 1 hour in advance

When using Canis World some pet parents have placed the dosing on the pets food.  Some pets lick their bowl clean and this can be fine however we prefer to not have a pets meal combined with dosing.

We prefer to see dosing an hour before OR an hour after a pets meal.

In some instances pet parents observe favorable benefits in their pets within an hour or less.  In some cases it may be a day or two.  However, pets can require 2-3 weeks before their endocannbinoid system starts to stabilize before you may observe results.

Dosing with other vet pharma

Canis World has a general rule of thumb that pets who may be taking vet pharma should take their vet pharma 2 to 3 hours before administration of Canis World.

As always we recommend you open a dialog with your veterinarian if you have questions.

Document your journey

Often we will hear pet parents relay observations and astounded with how well their pet(s) respond.  In some cases, living with your pet you may not readily note some of the beneficial gains, therefore we recommend taking a short video and documenting your journey.  Plus we like to collect our pet parents progress and stay in touch!
