Dosing your cat is similar to dosing your dog and other pets, just with a different formula. Unlike humans, cats have more cannabinoid receptors in their brains. The ideal dosage is also dependent on the underlying condition or reason for giving CBD edibles to your cat.
A general rule of thumb is to start with 1mg for every 10lbs of body weight and increase the dose by 1mg per day depending on the response of your cat. While there hasn’t been any reported case of an overdose of CBD, experts recommend capping the upper limit at 5mg for every 10lbs of body weight.
Cats are also prone to gastrointestinal upsets as a reaction to the use of CBD, and researchers have noticed several cases of marijuana toxicity when cats nibble on hemp and marijuana plants. Isolate edibles are also recommended, and that the edibles are free from GM and other unsafe ingredients.
