When you buy hemp oil for your dog, you’ll notice that the bottle will have a certain concentration, which is listed in milligrams (mg). This is the amount of CBD in the entire bottle. Common concentrations are 250mg, 500mg and 1,000mg.

Every batch of hemp should have its own COA … this protects you from poor quality products. If the COA isn’t listed on the website, make sure you ask for it before buying your dog’s hemp oil.

10. Promotes Cardiovascular Health

If you have trouble getting your dog to eat, hemp oil may help. The National Cancer Institute reports that full spectrum hemp increases appetite.

Hemp oil has been shown to decrease the production and release of inflammatory cytokines. These can cause allergies, hypersensitivities and autoimmunity. It can also suppress something called Th17 dominance, a major cause of autoimmune diseases.

On the topic of chronic inflammation, hemp oil is also a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants fight free radical damage, which is a major cause of organ disease and premature aging. Research shows hemp oil is a more powerful antioxidant than both vitamin C and E.

The bottom line is, hemp oil could be a healthy (or even life-saving) herb for your dog. More and more pet owners and holistic vets are drawn to its diverse health benefits. And they feel good knowing the side effects are mild and animals don’t appear to build up a tolerance.

Hoping to calm your nervous pooch? Honest Paws’ premium organic product contains full-spectrum hemp oil with naturally occurring CBD and chamomile. Chamomile has been used for thousands of years to promote calmer, happier moods and promote healthy brain function. Coupled with Honest Paws’ third-party tested full-spectrum CBD hemp oil and 30-day money back guarantee, this formula ranks high on our list.

“If a pet owner had a concern about CBD going into their pets and just wanted some of the benefits from the plant, I’d recommend hemp seed oil over hemp oil,” Mahaney says.

Some pet owners have reported side effects such as vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, and lethargy after ingesting CBD oil. However most dogs do not experience side effects or require veterinary treatment. In studies that examined the effectiveness of hemp oil for osteoarthritis, no side effects were reported.

Best Flavored Hemp Oil for Dogs

Hemp seed oil is derived from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. Although the seeds were once believed to not to be a source of CBD, new research shows that, depending on the processing, hemp seed oil can contain up to 30 different cannabinoids. CBD levels are lower in hemp seed oil than in hemp oil.

Hemp oil in tincture form comes with a dropper that can be used to give a precise dose to pets. You can use the dropper to put the oil under their tongue or against their cheek, which is considered the gold standard for accurate, effective dosing. If your dog is uncomfortable taking the hemp oil in this manner, it can be drizzled on a treat or your dog’s food.

Both hemp oil and hemp seed oil also contain plant compounds such as terpenes and phenols that offer additional health benefits, according to Dr. Patrick Mahaney, a holistic veterinarian with California Pet Acupuncture and Wellness in Los Angeles.
