Our Calm Pet product line, at this time, does not extend to our feline friends. While cats tend to be more chill than dogs, they can be more sensitive to certain things like one of the ingredients found in Calm Pet.

While the risk is small to most cats, our calming products are intended for dogs.

So, within the next several months look out for our cat calming product. It is currently being developed and experimented on in our secret lab with only the smartest and craziest cats known to man.

In the meantime, pay attention to your cats diet, environment (new cats or kids), and other external factors before considering a supplement to calm them down. Catnip and more play time are simple first steps before exploring a supplement like Hemp Well (or prescribed medications). Additionally, our Relief and Everyday Omegas line can help your cat reduce inflammation from everyday activities and supports a healthy immune system.


Like us humans, many animals can not synthesize everything they need for their health. Therefore, they sometimes rely on their diet, through which they absorb certain nutrients. Essential fatty acids are initially used as building blocks for long-chain fatty acids of vital importance, the end products of which are finally absorbed by every cell in the body. Hemp seed oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are used to produce eicosanoids – so-called signaling molecules that can be anti-inflammatory but also promote.

As it is with everything in life, too much of a good thing can hurt. Although inflammation can be the cause of numerous health problems, such as arthritis, autoimmune diseases and allergies, but they also help in some cases in healing processes. For pets suffering from diseases such as cancer or infections, supplementation with more omega-6 fatty acids may be supportive of the defense. Mainly for a good health is a balanced intake of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids – hemp seed oil contains these by nature in the ideal ratio. As many animal feeds are made with cheaper oils, which usually contain too much omega-6 fatty acids and too little omega-3 fatty acids,

Apart from the fact that fatty acids of balanced healing and health serve, they are particularly beneficial in terms of cardiac and renal health, growth and development, trainability, skin health and on the general mood and the shiny coat. While many soon discover the first positive effects of hemp oil supplementation in their pet, it can take about three to four months to fully develop their effects as the fatty acids are absorbed throughout the body. If the pet subsequently experiences flatulence or diarrhea, it may be due to an overdose, and the daily supplementation will simply be reduced until the symptoms diminish.

Hemp oil, which is extracted from the whole plant, contains additional components, which are not contained in the hemp seed oil. The most famous of these is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), which is best known for its psychoactive effects that stoned its users. Unlike marijuana, hemp contains little trace of THC (less than 0.3%) and does not make our pets “high”. Hemp oil from plant parts contains significantly more CBD (cannabidiol), which promises a potential life-saving benefit and does not cause intoxication in the same breath. CBD’s current applications include the treatment of epilepsy and other seizure disorders, pain relief in multiple sclerosis, relief of inflammation, and protection against neurodegenerative diseases. CBD also relieves anxiety and pain, supports the immune system and heart health, and even works to fight cancer. Cannabidiol is a fascinating and safe health supplement that has garnered much media attention in recent years, and it appears as if new studies are published daily highlighting the efficacy of this substance. Because all mammals have an endocannabinoid system that responds to the body’s signals as well as to compounds found in hemp, CBD has as many potential benefits to humans as to the animal. which has received much media attention in recent years, and it seems as if daily new studies are published which illustrate the efficacy of this substance. Because all mammals have an endocannabinoid system that responds to the body’s signals as well as to compounds found in hemp, CBD has as many potential benefits to humans as to the animal. which has received much media attention in recent years, and it seems as if daily new studies are published which illustrate the efficacy of this substance. Because all mammals have an endocannabinoid system that responds to the body’s signals as well as to compounds found in hemp, CBD has as many potential benefits to humans as to the animal.

Terpenes belong to a different class of compounds that can be found in the extract of whole hemp plant parts, but not in hempseed oil. They are by no means unique to hemp or cannabis, but are commonly found in nature. Terpenes are basically responsible for making basil taste like basil and rosemary like rosemary or that oranges taste sour, and so on. Terpenes have a proven, albeit very minor health-promoting effect, and are generally so weak that they prove to be impractical supplements. In addition to offering us humans very little health benefit, terpenes can even become a source of danger to animals. Many animals, even if they seem similar to us, yet they differ greatly in their metabolism and their sensitivity to toxins from us. Everyone knows that it is not a good idea to feed a dog with chocolate. The reason for this is theobromine, a chemical that we humans tolerate well, but dogs only very slowly break down. However, cats lack specific liver enzymes called glucuronyltransferase, which are needed to break down such terpenes. Since cats are not able to effectively metabolize terpenes, it can lead to organ damage and even death when consumed. Cat owners should therefore definitely refrain from products that contain terpenes (even on the extract of whole hemp plant parts). If there are any, the few positive effects are overshadowed by the grave consequences that are to be taken seriously. Pet owners should only buy products that are specially labeled as pet food and feed them nothing that is intended for humans.

The increased research and daily new scientific evidence on the safety and effectiveness of hemp-based supplements shows that the time has come to take a look at the benefits and effects that this wonderful plant has to offer to humanity and their pets.


There is mounting evidence that essential fats play a significant role in your pet’s ability to fight off most all illness and disease, and it is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies seen in veterinary practices.

Symptoms of Omega 3 & 6 deficiency encountered daily in veterinary clinics include:

  • Dry skin & coat and brittle nails
  • Chronic Inflammation (Including arthritis and bowel disease)
  • Recurrent skin and ear infections
  • Skin allergies

Deficiency of Omega-3 Fats in cats and dogs can result in:

  • Stunted growth
  • Eye problems
  • Muscle weakness
  • Lack of motor coordination
  • Immune system dysfunction

The oil pressed from the Hemp seeds contains the highest concentration of essential fatty acids (Omega 6, Omega 3 and GLA) of any all natural plant source. In addition, the Hemp seed is also very high in digestible protein.

There is increasing scientific evidence that Omega 3 and Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids may play important roles in animals with conditions such as pruritic skin disease, atopic dermatitis, allergies, degenerative joint disease, neoplasia, thromboembolic disease and eosinophilic granuloma complex. Hemp seed oil, as a supplement or ingredient in dog and cat food is showing great promise.

Furthermore, the nutritional composition found in Hempseed oil is showing great promise as an addition to both small and large animal feed. The good fat in Hemp seed oil is truly unique. Approximately 80% is polyunsaturated fat – the highest of any vegetable oil.

Specifically, it contains the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) and Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3) in an ideal ratio for absorption by the body. These EFAs, considered good fats, cannot be produced by the body and therefore must be obtained from our diets. Hemp seed oil also contains Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), from which Omega 6 is naturally converted.


There are two types of receptors that cannabinoids can bind to and create an effect on; CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the central nervous system, and help regulate mood, anxiety, and alertness. CB2 receptors are primarily found in the peripheral nervous system, and influence the immune system, pain, and inflammation. Because of their widespread and numerous effects, these receptors play an important role in maintaining health.
