Remember, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound.
Many pet owners struggle to decide which product to use for their pet.
As I’m sure you know, dog’s aren’t too keen on taking medicine, so this can be a little tricky for some.

Can My Dog Take Too Much CBD?
However, remember that the oil treatment is the most difficult to administer and has the strongest taste.
What’s great about Honest Paws is that they make administering these supplements very simple.
When it comes to treats and cookies, always follow the guidelines on the box. It’s really that straightforward.
Choosing the Right Product (Oil, Capsules, Or Treats)
Again, the exact number of capsules needed for a dose vary from one product to another, but generally consist of roughly 1 tablet taken 1-2 times per day.
Finally, if your dog weighs over 50 pounds, you should order the large size.
I calculated the dosing table below based on the Companion product, along with studies I reviewed in this blog post. The dosing is based on 0.3 mg of CBD per kilogram of animal body weight (a safe and effective dose). I converted the kilograms to pounds and calculated the milligrams of CBD needed at each 5 pound increment, then I calculated the number of drops of Companion tincture needed to deliver that number of milligrams. I hope you find it helpful…
The Companion tincture is 120mg of cannabinoids total in a 5 to 1 ratio of CBD to THC. One drop equals 0.33 mg of CBD and 0.07 mg of THC.
Locally here in Washington state I purchase a liquid CBD product that is bacon flavored called, Companion. It is coconut oil based and very easy to add to dog treats or mix into food. You just use the dropper to dispense the exact amount of drops for your pet. My dogs love it! It is a great product in part because you know exactly how much CBD your pets are getting, the concentration is reported on the label and backed by lab testing. Fairwinds seems to be one of the more science-minded companies out there, and I have heard good things about them from the retailers I have visited (Vancouver area). I expect them to produce a consistent and effective product and I haven’t been disappointed. I have personally seen the product work to prevent seizures in my friend’s dog. For this dog, normal marijuana products (low in CBD) were actually causing more seizures. But after switching to the Companion tincture the seizures stopped all together! I give it to my dogs to control anxiety.

The companion tincture is made with a 5 to 1 ratio of CBD to THC, providing an effect that is low in psychoactivity, but while harnessing the power of THC. CBD alone is proven to be less effective for a variety of uses than when paired with THC. The “entourage effect” of combining these cannabinoids allows for results that are dramatically better than CBD or THC alone. To further enhance the Companion enjoyment, the Bacon flavor is remarkable whether you are consuming sublingually or adding this tincture to food. Word on the street is Companion on eggs and in Bloody Mary’s is tremendous. Who doesn’t love Bacon?
Note: This product has not been approved by the FDA to treat, cure or prevent any disease.

10% of all Companion proceeds will go to Northwest organizations that are furthering pet wellness. If you’d like to learn more about this initiative or would like to recommend Northwest organizations that can benefit from this program, please contact us. We are very excited about this program and all the benefits it will provide.
Vegetarians need not worry, the Bacon flavoring is all natural, however it is not derived from animals.
The Fairwinds Companion Tincture line is produced in honor of that special family member who is always there for you, loving you unconditionally.
The Companion tincture is designed for a broad range of support. To find the serving that works best for you, start with one single drop (not full dropper) and continue to administer more as seen necessary to meet your personal needs. To monitor results, wait approximately 10-30 minutes in between servings to allow the cannabis oil to absorb and have an effect. If too much oil is administered, the effects may produce a sedating and intoxicating experience for the consumer. This effect may last anywhere from 2-5 hours depending on the quantity of tincture administered.
