Side effects from CBD for your dogs can include dry mouth, temporary lowered blood pressure, and drowsiness caused by the calming effect of CBD.
Your dog cannot get “high” from CBD oil because there is no THC. However, to minimize any potential side effects, make sure you are following the proper dosage based on your dog’s weight.
It is important to note that the safety and risks of using CBD for dogs have not yet been researched. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved CBD and has not issued a dosing chart. Therefore, we do not know what size dosage would be toxic.
Any medication or supplement carries the risk of a reaction. It is always advisable, when giving your dog something new, to start out with small amounts and then closely monitor the effects. And always, check with your veterinarian first.
