HempMeds has a human division of their CBD company where they sell a huge assortment of CBD for people. However, in this review, we are focusing on HempMeds Hemp Oil for Pets which is a substantial line of CBD products developed just for dogs and cats. They sell CBD oils, topicals, and chews to help your furry friend live a long and happy life.
Their HempMeds for Pets are full spectrum which means they are loaded with the cannabis plant’s valuable cannabinoids. However, they contain less than 0.3 percent THC.
You can purchase yummy chews for your dogs or cats. You can also buy full spectrum oils and topicals for the family pet. Each one of the items contains CBD but also other beneficial supplements that have been found to help enhance your pet’s life.
The labels on the products are very straightforward. You’ll see dosage directions plus supplement facts printed on the label. There is a QR code that you can use along with your smartphone to access the lab results for each product.
The pet section of HempMeds website is laid out nicely. You can peruse the various pet CBD products and if you one catches your eye, you can click on it for further information. If you are still interested, then you can add it to your cart.
Although the description pages for the various pet products say they are triple lab tested, there is no link to click on to obtain the lab reports.
HempMeds uses supercritical CO2 extraction which is considered a premium extraction method since it leaves behind no chemical solvent residue. The extraction process produces a pure product and is eco-friendly.
HempMeds claims that their products go through three lab tests during processing to ensure potency and purity.
For our review, HempMeds sent us two pet products: Hemp for Dogs Relaxation and Hemp for Pets Full Spectrum. Both the plastic container of chews and the glass bottle of oil had QR codes that are typically used to access the product’s lab reports. However, we were unable to access the information online. In an effort to obtain the lab reports, we visited the website but they do not list their lab reports online.
We also contacted their customer service for the lab results but haven’t received any answer.
It’s important to have the lab reports to examine the cannabinoid percentages and ensure that proper testing has been carried out for potential contaminants such as E. coli, yeasts, and solvents. However, since the information was not readily available there was no way to make the comparisons.

We were sent two products to review by HempMeds
The chews arrived in a plastic container with a top that screws on. There was a safety seal to guarantee freshness that you must break open to reach the chews. The pungent aroma of the chews definitely smelled like a combination of chicken and bacon. Dogs certainly adore the strong aroma. The square chews ware bite sized and soft to the touch. Each chew contains 2.5 mg of CBD and the entire jar holds 75mg of CBD. I gave one chew to my German Shepherd dog and he immediately ate it. Clearly he relished the taste and texture because he begged for more.
The CBD was mixed with medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil that is said to come from organic coconuts. The oil was a medium brown in color and the consistency was very oily. It did smell plant like, as you would expect with a full spectrum oil. My dog did not want to lick the oil but I was able to put a couple of drops in his food and he did not realize he was even taking his daily dose of CBD.
