Hemp CBD For Pets Serving Guidelines

How to Use HempMy Pet™ Products and Serving Size Guidelines

Which Product Should You Buy?

When shopping the HempMy Pet™ website all the products you see are made with the exact same full spectrum (all the cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.) hemp extract, grown organically here on our farms and produced by us seed-to-sale. We have both Biscuits and Oils. The oils have only two ingredients – the carrier oil and the hemp extract.

Infused Oils. For our oils we offer three choices, all of which are infused with the same hemp extract:

  • Hemp Seed Oil – a wonderfully nutritious carrier oil + the hemp extract in 250 mg and 1,000 mg concentrations. (This is the most common and popular type, often referred to as a ‘Tincture’.)
  • Coconut Oil – a tasty and healthy carrier oil + the hemp extract in 100 mg and 500 mg concentrations. (Also great for topical use like rubbing in a cat’s ears for absorption.)
  • Olive Oil – organic and virgin carrier oil in a large 4 oz. bottle + hemp extract in a 5,000 mg concentration. (‘Barn-friendly’ for use with horses and great for households with large or multiple dogs.)

Biscuits. Only natural and organic ingredients. Crunchy but not hard. The Small Biscuits deliver 2 mg per biscuit. The Large Biscuits deliver 5 mg per biscuit.

What About the Concentration?

The label of each product is specific to the about of total CBD in it. Since everything has the same hemp extract, generally speaking, the lower concentrations are most often used by smaller pets or those taking lower doses. Larger pets or those taking higher doses select the higher concentrations to lower the overall volume of oil used as well as save on the cost. The Serving Size guidelines are below.

So Many Benefits and Uses!

The HempMy Pet™ Serving Size Guidelines

First, you’ll notice all of our products list ‘hemp actives’ and not just CBD content alone. Our hemp extract is considered “full spectrum” which means that all of the naturally occurring active compounds that are present in the hemp plant are also present in the extract (i.e. cannabinoids, terpenoids, etc.). All of these constituents interact synergistically in what is referred to as the “entourage effect”- thus increasing the efficacy of the oil and its health benefits. Our hemp extract is considered to be “CBD-rich” because our hemp plants are bred to be high in CBD, which means that they produce oil that is also high in CBD. There are also what are considered “minor” cannabinoids present in our plants and extracts, such as CBN, CBG, THC and THCa, as well as terpenes, and flavonoids which also contribute to the entourage effect. For determining serving size, we solely use the CBD content (measured in milligrams “mg”) because it is the most abundant cannabinoid in the plant, extract and finished product, and is also what we base our formulation on, so this keeps things consistent and accurate.

Serving Size (AKA ‘Dosage’)

All based on mg of CBD.

We always recommend consulting with your veterinarian. Every pet and every condition are unique. In the HempMy Pet Clinical Study by independent veterinarians, effective servings ranged widely, from as low as 0.3 mg/kg to 4.12 mg/kg (1.36 mg per 10 lbs to 18 mg per 10 lbs of the pet’s weight). This information is to be used for general guidelines only.

Serving size guidelines are based on your pet’s weight. Starting ‘low and slow’ is the recommended approach. It may take a few days to a couple of weeks for you to begin seeing any results, especially while you fine-tune what works best for your pet. (Or you may see results immediately – again, all pets are unique.) The correct amount for your pet is to be determined, please be patient and remember these are herbal formulas and not pharmaceuticals and work very differently in each pet’s system.

You can give on an empty or full stomach.

You can give divide the amounts into multiple servings during the day, we usually recommend twice a day for best results.

Our infused oils only have two ingredients – the hemp extract and the chosen carrier oil (organic coconut oil, organic hemp seed oil, or organic olive oil).

To begin – ‘Low and Slow’. If you and your pet are brand-new to hemp oil it is recommended to begin ‘low and slow’, starting with a really low serving size and slowly adjusting over days and weeks as needed. This is for two reasons:

  1. No need to hurry and waste. Your pet may only require a small amount. So while it’s true we know of plenty of large dogs that take less than 10 mg, for example, it is equally true that we also know many small dogs that take more than 10 mg, etc. Again, your pet’s right amount is to be determined with some testing and time.
  2. While not common, we want to make sure the introduction of new oils to their digestive systems does not upset them in any manner. If any loose stool results back down the dosing and give them even more time to acclimate. If it continues to disagree with them stop using and return the product. Customer Support can help you with any returns.

On this really low end some veterinarians have recommended a graduated 3-tier approach, taking up to a week to observe each tier before moving on, if necessary.
Tier 1: 0.05 mg per lb of bodyweight is the low end
Tier 2: 0.125 mg per lb of bodyweight is the middle ground
Tier 3: 0.25 mg per lb of bodyweight is the high end

Two basic levels of Serving Size – “Supplemental” vs. “Therapeutic”

Working with feedback from our Customers and consulting with our Veterinarians we have found most pets end up with serving sizes falling into two basic levels, the lower daily “Supplemental” (includes preventive”) and the higher “Therapeutic” intake. Correspondingly, we have formulated both our Infused Coconut Oil and Infused Hemp Seed Oil in lower and higher concentrations to best meet these needs and cover all sizes, weights and conditions effectively.

The 250 mg Hemp Seed Oil and the 100 mg Coconut Oil both advise with Daily Supplemental recommendations ranging between 1-2 mg per 10 lbs. of your pet’s weight. The lower concentrations better allow for micro-increments such as 1.25 gm, 1.5 gm, 1.75 gm, etc.

The 1000 mg Hemp Seed Oil and the 500 mg Coconut Oil assume a more Therapeutic level recommending between 2-3 mg per 10 lbs of your pet’s weight. The higher concentration allows for more milligrams of the hemp actives using less oil overall.

Pets Weight in lbs.Supplemental 1-2 mg/10 lb.Therapeutic 2-3 mg/10 lb.
1-10 lbs.1-2 mg2-3 mg

Cruelty Free Dog Products

No animals are harmed in the manufacturing of our products. 

In the animal rights movement, cruelty–free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world. Products tested on animals are not considered cruelty–free, since these tests are often painful and cause the suffering and death of millions of animals every year.

Vegan Dog Products

No animal products or by-products used in any of our oils.

The only non-vegan product we have are the Pumpkin Hemp Dog Biscuits which do contain egg. (The Peanut Butter Banana Hemp Dog Biscuits do not and are also vegan.)


Getting vegetarianism confused with veganism is a common mistake most people make. So today we are going to closely examine the definition of vegan versus the definition of a vegetarian in this post. Hopefully, this provides a little clarity.


The Oxford dictionary definition of a vegetarian is “a person who does not eat meat or does not believe in eating meat, fish, fowl, or in some cases, any food derived from animals, as eggs or cheese, but subsists on vegetables, fruits, nuts, grain etc.”

This basically divides vegetarians into two groups; vegetarians who exclude eggs and dairy and vegetarians who include these items in their diets. The latter can then be broken up into a further three groups; ovo- vegetarians (who consume eggs but not milk), lacto-vegetarians (who consume milk but not eggs) and ovo-lacto vegetarians who consume both milk and eggs.

There’s often controversy surrounding “semi-vegetarians”, whose diet consists mainly of vegetarian foods but includes fish or poultry. The main differentiating factor between all of the above-mentioned groups is how much animal products are included in the diet.


The above difference is the main distinguishing factor between the definition of vegan and that of a vegetarian because vegans exclude animal products in their entirety. The official definition of veganism is “the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in a diet. As well as following an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals.

A follower of veganism is known as a vegan”. That means veganism extends beyond the diet of a vegan individual. That is the biggest difference between vegans and vegetarians. While vegetarians may not consume animal products, they may use them if they are present in other products, such as items containing silk, honey or leather.

Vegans, on the other hand, avoid the use of animal products in all areas of their lifestyles.

Human Grade Dog Products

All ingredients and manufacturing processes are Human-Grade. We would never make anything for our pets considered not suitable for ourselves. The term human-grade in pet food means the finished product is legally suitable and approved as nourishment for humans. It is “edible.” Human foods are much more rigorously regulated than foods made for animals.

Organic Dog Products

All of our products are made with top quality, Certified Organic carrier oils and Organically-grown ingredients, all sourced responsibly and sustainably. Our products are infused with our own Full-spectrum Hemp extract which is derived from our own Organically-grown Colorado Hemp that was grown at our own facilities.

Cultivar Specific Hemp Oil Dog Products

For consistency. HempMy Pet grows one particular cultivar of hemp, selected specifically for its cannabinoid profile, and uses it every time for our hemp extract, maintaining consistency and eliminating unknowing trial and error.

Cannabis strains including Hemp and Marijuana are either pure or hybrid of the plant genus Cannabis, which encompasses the species Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis.

Varieties are developed to intensify specific characteristics of the plant, or to differentiate the strain for the purposes of marketing or to make it more effective as a natural supplement. Variety names are typically chosen by their growers, and often reflect properties of the plant such as taste, color, smell, or the origin of the variety. These varieties have been cultivated to contain a high percentage of cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG, CBC and more. Several varieties of Cannabis, known as Hemp, have a very low THC content, and are instead grown for their fiber, seed and therapeutic propertiess

Third Party Tested Hemp Oil for Dogs

From Seed-to-Sale all HempMy Pet products are tested by reputable independent laboratories for purity, safety, and quality. The soil, the water, the plants and the finished product are all rigorously tested to ensure no solvents, pesticides, heavy metals or micro-bacterial contanimants are present. Certificates of Analysis (COAs) are published online with each product and always available upon request.

Organic Hemp Dog Products

All of our Hemp is organically grown in Colorado at our own greenhouse or farm. We do not import our hemp from overseas or any other state. We strive for perfection in our growing, curing, processing and formulating of our Hemp products.

Veterinarian Recommended Hemp Oil Dog Products

Clinically studied by independent veterinarians and sold in veterinarian clinics nationwide.

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil for Dogs

All the Cannabinoids, CBD, CBG, CBC..plus the terpenes and other minor cannabinoids made from the Whole Plant for the complete entourage effect.

CBD has become quite popular over the last couple of years but despite what you might think it is only one of the 100 compounds that have been identified in the Cannabis Sativa L plant. Full-spectrum CBD oil, unlike CBD isolate products, includes a wide range of cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. Depending on the condition and what you are looking to achieve it can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together in what is known as the entourage effect.

Full-spectrum CBD also contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. When referring to CBD in the hemp plant, it’s important to understand that Hemp contains a large number of cannabinoids (in trace amounts), but the main compounds are CBD and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). As CBDa is more abundant in the hemp plant, firms must decarboxylate the oil. This process heats the oil and changes CBDa into CBD.

Just one last thing before we explain the benefits of Full Spectrum CBD oil, its important to understand that CBD from Cannabis is only legal in Medical or recreational states, while CBD hemp oil is legal in all 50 states under the 2014 US Farm Bill. While it may not be able to treat all conditions it has been known to assist with a variety of medical conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.

The Benefits of the Whole Plant

One of the most important studies relating to full-spectrum CBD oil took place at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Hadassah School in 2015. It compared the performance of a full spectrum extract with one that contained CBD only. The study concluded that full spectrum was more effective when fighting pain and inflammation.

While CBD only is somewhat effective, the whole plant extract not only provided faster and better relief, the effects also lasted longer. This is why an increasing number of companies in the CBD industry are selling full-spectrum CBD oil as a rule.

The aforementioned entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts. There are over 100 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they come together in a synergistic way to provide far better performance than any single compound, including CBD.
