3 Changes You Can Make If You’re Not Seeing Results From CBD

Sep 14, 2023

Struggling to see results with CBD? The good news is, there are steps you can take to help make your pet’s product as effective as possible!

We know that adding CBD to your pet’s daily regimen can sometimes be tricky, especially when you’re trying to figure out where to administer and how much to see results from CBD. While some pet parents see results from CBD products right away, for others, it can take a few days or so of administering to your pet correctly.

Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system, which is only activated when CBD is absorbed in your pet’s body. This creates a 2-way communication system between the brain and other systems in the body to help the body function at optimum levels of health. When CBD isn’t administered correctly, the endocannabinoid system may not activate to its full potential which is why you might not be noticing any differences when administering CBD to your pet. When you don’t see results from CBD, it may take some troubleshooting with these 3 tips to help your pet start seeing results from Pet Releaf’s CBD pet products.

1. Where to Administer

How a CBD product should be administered depends on the product line. Our Pet Releaf Edibites, CBD Hemp Oils, and Capsules should be administered directly in the mouth outside of mealtimes for max absorption. When you administer our CBD Oil directly on a full bowl of food, it can absorb into the food and not in your pet’s system, which is why you may not see strong results from CBD.

If your pet is picky and won’t take the supplement without food, our Ultra Releaf Liposome Hemp Oils are a great alternative as they can be administered during or after mealtime without losing any effectiveness.

2. Administering Times

If you want 18-hour coverage for your pet, we recommend splitting the recommended usage amount between the morning and evening! Each half of the recommended usage amount is equal to about 9 hours of coverage, so when you split the usage amount between the AM/PM, it gives your pet 18 hours of coverage for the day. The more you administer CBD regularly, the more you will see consistent results in your pet. This means, don’t just administer on days with stressful events. It’s a good idea to give CBD daily!

If you only want to use CBD for your pet’s situational stress, such as stress while you’re at work, then you can follow a different format. We recommend that you administer at least 30 min to an hour before you leave for work, give half of the usage amount so they’re covered while you’re away. If you’re administering CBD before a stressful event like a storm or fireworks, we recommend administering about 30 minutes before the storm or event is predicted to start.

3. Increasing or decreasing usage amounts

We provide recommended usage amounts on our products based on your pet’s weight range. These recommendations are a great starting amount to see how it works for your pet. But, all of our recommended usages on our products are just recommendations so that they can be altered for any pet. Not all dogs and cats are the same, so sometimes it can get a bit difficult to find that happy-medium amount that works. Some pets might need more or less, so it’s useful to test out different usage amounts to see which works best for them and which gives you the best results from CBD! It’s also important to note that there have been no known overdoses on CBD, so you never have to worry about giving your furry companion too much.
