Giving your dog, cat, bird or horse is simple. Just watch Heidi enjoy her Hemp Omegas oil and give your pet organic hemp oil, too.
We reached out to 5 top carriers in the pet insurance industry and the answer from each of them is “NO”.
It is true that prescribed drugs from a veterinarian are covered in most pet insurance plans, but since CBD is not a drug it is not covered. What may be covered by some carriers is synthetic cannabis made in a laboratory not in the ground.
Just like us your dog has an endocannabinoid system. We all need cannabinoids to support body function and health. So, how much CBD should you be giving your pooch?
Most important to know, dogs have more cannabinoid receptors than most other mammals. They require far less CBD than we do. While 1000 mg bottles may be the norm for humans, dogs need far less.
Giving too much THC (the psychoactive compound of cannabis) can have very bad outcomes. Since dogs are sensitive to cannabinoids, THC can keep your dog stoned for up to two days.
All Hemp Well products are THC free, so no worries about getting your furry friend stoned. Additionally, all of our CBD products contain dosage instructions on the package. Giving your pet CBD is important, but proper dosage may be the most important.
Giving your dog too much CBD may not harm your pet but it is wasteful and can be expensive. Unused cannabinoids are excreted through the urine.
Depending on where you live – or which store you buy your groceries from – you may not be able to buy CBD from your local grocery store. Many retailers including gas stations, head shops and even pet stores offer CBD products for sale. So, why not at the major retailers?
US Congress decided that hemp (cannabis that won’t get you stoned) and its extracts (like CBD) are fully legal. Despite this fact many of the world’s largest retailers like Kroger, Walmart, Amazon and Chewy.com all have pharmacy licenses and have made the decision to not sell any ingestible products containing CBD.
Some hemp CBD products (full spectrum) may contain trace levels of THC. The lawyers at big retailers are unwilling to take the risk selling even legal, trace amounts of THC even though trace amounts can never get anyone stoned. Additionally, several drug manufacturers have patented synthetic CBD for applications ranging from seizures to pain relief. With FDA approval of synthetic CBD, pharmacies have steered clear from selling natural and plant based cannabinoids (CBD). You can however purchase synthetic CBD from most pharmacies.
No need to worry, there are many legitimate retailers that sell trusted, natural, plant based CBD products. View Store Finder
Hempseed oil and hemp powder products that are derived from the hemp seed are generally sold at grocery stores found on Amazon. Hemp seeds do not contain cannabinoids – ZERO THC and ZERO CBD. Hemp seeds may offer a better omega fatty source than fish oils, flax seeds and krill. Plus, hemp is sustainable and doesn’t rely on harsh pesticides to grow.
You can learn about the amazing Omega 3 fatty acids and other properties of hemp on this site, or perhaps you already know it. What many do not realize is the benefits of hemp compared to sunflower seeds as it relates to bird health. Hemp plants do not require pesticides as they are naturally resistant to most attackers (#487 of the cool things about hemp). Sunflowers, conversely, are very much affected by root weevils and other attackers.
Pesticides are used to fight root weevils when growing Sunflowers in nearly all instances. These same pesticides have attributed to negative health effects and even some bird fatalities.
Hemp seeds have benefits that sunflower seeds do not.
“The insect protein comes from black soldier fly larvae, which are already in use in animal feed in Europe,” Purina wrote in a recent press release. “The millet and fava beans provide protein, energy, and fiber to aid digestion. All the ingredients are steamed to maintain nutrient quality.”
Insects can provide more protein than beef and lamb. Insects can provide all 20 amino acids and other benefits to support health. Guess what? So can the hemp plant.
Restrictions with animal feed do not currently allow for hemp to be added to dog and cat food in the United States. Why not? It’s not like hemp ever killed anyone, and my dog and I both agree, we would rather eat hemp than a fly.
Forget about ‘Take your dog to work day’. This is 2020, you are probably working at home with your dog right now.
Created in 1999 by Pet Sitters International in an attempt to encourage dog adoptions, the unofficial US holiday has grown in popularity each year and celebrated on the first Friday after Father’s day.
Studies even suggest that bringing pets to your job can increase productivity. If one day a year boosted work productivity, just imagine how much work pets and people are getting done at home offices every day.
We are in business for the same reason as our retail partners – our love of pets. That’s why we do what we do, right? You, us, store employees and owners – we all want the best for pets.
So what if we told you there is a better source of Omega 3 and Omega 6, than any corn oil, flaxseed oil, or fish oil products that are currently in the marketplace?
This source has absolutely no risk of containing heavy metals. There’s no risk of pesticides, and pets love the light nutty taste of it. That would pretty much make it the best dosage form animal product on the planet, right?
But wait, there’s more! The source of the product is one hundred percent sustainable, and will not decimate critical wildlife populations, like commercial fishing methods can. After all, why would any pet lover ever want to risk an animal’s life?

As we age our bodies produce less cannabinoids. Additionally, if our health is compromised we also produce less and need to turn to nature. Dogs have more cannabinoid receptors than other mammals. They can be highly sensitive. Hemp Well products are organic and provide recommended administration amounts to support pet health.
