The general rule of thumb for a starting dosage for dogs is 1mg of CBD per 10 pounds of animal weight, twice a day.
This is considered a medium dosage starting point. The chart at the bottom shows how many drops are needed to give this starting dosage based on Max & Neo CBD oil bottles which come in 30ml bottles.
A full dropper is 1ml and contains about 20 drops. You can increase your dog's dosage up to 2-3 times the amount if you are not seeing any results.
How many mg are in each drop of my CBD oil bottle?
An easy way to figure this out with any bottle is that you can assume that a 30ml (1oz) bottle, which is the size most brands sell, contains about 900-950 drops. For simplicity, we round this up to 1000 drops and we would still be 90-95% accurate.
So if there are 1000 drops in a bottle, and the bottle is a 1000mg bottle.
The math is: 1000mg divided by 1000drops = 1mg/drop
If you have a 250mg bottle, then there is 0.25mg per drop, and so on.
How many drops are in my dropper?
If you are tired of counting out 40 drops, then realize that most droppers will contain 20 drops when you give the bulb a regular squeeze.
A full dropper doesn't mean that the liquid goes all the way to the top. If you notice the dropper on the right, 1ml is only about 60% of the way up the dropper.
If your dropper doesn't have the ml marks, just know that 1ml is about 60% up the stem.
