How to Use CBD

Giving Canna Companion Products

Canna Companion products are formulated by veterinarians, tested for potency, and come with clearly labeled administration guidelines. 

Administration recommendations are listed online, outer packaging and the bottle’s label because you shouldn’t have to search for your pet’s CBD dosing guidelines.

Available Forms

Canna Companion CBD products are available in both oil and capsule forms.

Capsules are administered orally during or after mealtime.

Cats: 1 cap per day

Dogs: 1 cap two times daily

Oil is also best administered during or after mealtime, and comes with a clearly marked oral dosing syringe.

Weight-based administration instructions are printed on outer packaging, inner bottle labels and in our online charts. 

Cats: 1 dose two times daily

Dogs: 1 dose three times daily

Dosage and Administration

Accurate administration is essential for maximizing the benefits of CBD supplements. Unlike many products that lack clear guidelines, Canna Companion standardized amounts for consistent results.

Capsules: Products are divided into four weight ranges for ease of administration, 1 capsule per dose, either once daily (cats) or twice daily (dogs).

Cats / Small Dogs < 20 lb

Medium Dogs 21-50 lb

Large Dogs 51-80 lb

Extra Large Dogs >81 lb

Oil: Products are specified cat vs dog and, for dogs, in weight ranges. 

Cats: 0.1 ml per 10 lb twice daily 

Small & Medium Dogs <40 lb: 0.1 ml per 10 lb three times daily 

Large & Extra Large Dogs >41 lb: 0.1 ml per 20 lb three times daily

Individual Response and Adjustment

Each pet’s cannabis receptor system responds differently causing some pets to initially feel sleepy or have softer stools. This usually resolves without intervention in a few days. 

It’s important to give the supplement time to work, with optimal results often appearing within a week or two, and up to a month for some pets.

Contact us if you have any questions about your pet’s response.

Expected Results

Most pets show a response within a week, but it can take up to two weeks for optimal results. Administering the supplement during mealtimes can enhance absorption and effectiveness.

Joint Support: healthy response to occasional joint inflammation and stiffness, encourages optimal joint flexibility and mobility, and naturally soothes joints.

Neurological Support: enhances brain function, helps regulate normal nerve development, and provides a calming effect to nervous tissues. 

Emotional Balance: encourages healthy emotional responses, promotes relaxation without sedation, and helps restless pets. 

Immune System Support: offers immune stabilizing effects, promotes the body’s innate resistance to pathogens, and supports normal cellular activity. 

Gastrointestinal (GI) and Other Systems’ Support: supports healthy digestive and urinary tract functions, relaxes stressed GI tracts, and soothes occasional inflammation throughout the body.

Side Effects

Hemp CBD supplements typically have few side effects. Mild sleepiness or soft stools may occur initially but usually resolve without intervention after a few days. More severe reactions are rare and can often be managed by reducing the dose. Contact us if you have any questions. 


While adverse effects are minimal, it’s important to monitor your pet, especially during the initial stages of supplementation. Rarely more significant side effects may occur – stop administration and contact us if these are seen:

  • Extreme lethargy
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Wobbling or weaving while walking
  • Unwillingness to eat
