Many independent veterinarians in States and Europe observed that epileptic dogs given CBD in addition to seizure medication had significantly fewer seizures.


The observations were confirmed by a study of McGrath et al. (2019), which found that significant reduction in seizure frequency was achieved for dogs in the CBD group, comparing to the placebo group.

Scientific studies of CBD efficacy to treat various conditions in dogs are thriving. Brioschi et al (2020) found that CBD helps with chronic osteoarthritis-related pain in dogs.

In a recent research of Morris et al. (2020) it was shown that CBD may reduce Noise-Induced Fear Response of dogs. An Italian research, conducted by Corsetti et al. (2021) found that CBD reduces aggressive behaviour towards humans in shelter dogs.

Morris et al. (2021) reported that dogs after CBD ingestion appeared calmer and were scratching less, but were not less active during exercise.

CBD is often used in dogs because of its anti-inflammatory properties, cardiac benefits, anti-nausea effects, appetite stimulation, anti-anxiety impact, and for possible anti-cancer benefits.


Researchers gave dogs doses of 2 or 8 milligrams (mg) per kilogram (kg) of body weight.


When deciding the appropriate dose for your dog, you should consider its weight, as heavier animals require a higher CBD intake.

It is important to understand how much CBD is contained per one drop of the oil.

  • In 100 ml of 10 % CBD drops, there is 100 mg of CBD, meaning 0,33 mg of CBD per drop.

  • The recommended starting dose for 10 % CBD drops to test the response to oil is approximately 1 to 5 mg (3 to 15 drops) per 4,5 kg body weight.

  • In 10 ml of 5 % CBD drops, there is 50 ml of CBD, meaning 0,16 mg of CBD per drop.

  • The recommended starting dose for 5 % CBD drops to test the response to oil is approximately 1 to 5 mg (5 to 30 drops) per 4,5 kg body weight.
