Hemp Products are Changing the Pet Industry
While still well in its infancy, the market for pet hemp products is on the rise. According to a December 2019 report from Market Research Future, the global veterinary market for pet products containing CBD is on track to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 129% from 2019 to 2025.
Already, 11% of dog owners and 8% of cat owners have used hemp products with CBD for their pets, according to Packaged Facts, and recent data from Nielson shows that 37% of dog owners who give their dogs vitamins and other health products today acknowledge that they’re likely to give their pet a hemp oil product with CBD within the next year.
Pet owners are only starting to discover hemp pet products and the natural wellness benefits they can offer their cats and dogs with daily servings. A 2019 survey by researchers from Colorado State University showed that about 30% of veterinarians are questioned weekly by clients about CBD. Veterinarians in states with more lenient cannabis laws seem to be asked about CBD for pets more often.
With demand for CBD for pets increasing, new hemp pet products are regularly introduced to the market. As of now, data from Packaged Foods shows that the most popular hemp products for pets are oils, chews, and treats.
Benefits of Hemp Products with CBD for Pets
Pet owners have only started to discover how their pets can benefit from hemp oil products with CBD. Hemp pet products with CBD are increasingly used as an all-natural alternative to promote health and wellness in pets.
Like humans, dogs and cats have an endocannabinoid system that CBD interacts with and stimulates. The endocannabinoid system, found in all mammals, is responsible for keeping a long list of functions balanced and running optimally. When the endocannabinoid system operates efficiently, it’s able to keep the body in homeostasis, encouraging better health so that pets feel better.
This is why pet owners are turning to hemp products with CBD for their pets. CBD supports the endocannabinoid system by interacting with cannabinoid receptors, found on cells throughout the body.
For pets, a well-operating endocannabinoid system naturally encourages better cardiovascular function, promotes neurological health and behavior, supports healthy joints and hips, and improves healthy skin and coat.

Available Hemp Products for Pets
Pet retailers can offer their customers the full collection of high-quality pet hemp products by Hemp for Pets™.
Formulated with the consultation of leading veterinarians, Hemp for Pets™’ hemp oil products containing CBD are designed for pets, delivering safety, quality, and CBD potencies that are appropriate for dogs and cats.
The Hemp for Pets™ line is made up of pet hemp oils and chews, two of the popular pet hemp products that pet owners are seeking the most.
Hemp for Pets™ Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture
The Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture for pets is a versatile liquid made up of full-spectrum, decarboxylated hemp oil combined and nutritious medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil derived from organic coconut oil. Packed with a convenient dropper top, this hemp oil for pets is an ideal choice for small- to medium-sized pets like cats and dogs. It comes in both a 1-ounce bottle size with a total of 100 mg of CBD, and a 2-ounce bottle with a total of 500 mg of CBD.
Hemp for Pets™ Pure Hemp Oil Extract
Designed for pet owners looking to avoid even trace levels of THC, the Pure Hemp Oil Extract for pets is made with CBD isolate rather than full-spectrum hemp oil. CBD isolate comes from all-natural hemp oil but a proprietary filtration process filters out all compounds other than CBD. It hs a higher CBD potency than the full-spectrum tincture, with a total of 500 mg or CBD in the 1-ounce bottle, and a total of 1000 mg of CBD in the 4-ounce bottle.
Hemp for Pets™ Itch & Hot Spot Balm
Dogs and outdoor cats, in particular, can experience skin issues related to the outdoor environment. The Itch & Hot Spot Balm is a topical pet hemp product made with natural hemp oil, almond oil, beeswax, and other natural ingredients to soothe itchy or sore hot spots and nourish troubled skin, paws, and claws. It is available in a 1.3 oz. jar and contains a total of 50 mg of CBD.
Hemp for Pets™ Relaxation Soft Chews
Designed specifically for dogs experiencing tension, Relaxation Soft Chews are formulated with naturally-calming ingredients like chamomile, thiamine, L-tryptophan, and ginger. They also contain full-spectrum hemp oil, which contains CBD and all of the natural compounds found in hemp oil. Dogs enjoy their natural bacon and chicken flavor. They’re available in a 30-count jar and contain a total of 75 mg of CBD.
Safety and Legality of Hemp Pet Products
Pet retailers looking for wholesale hemp pet product opportunities will be happy to know that Hemp for Pets™ products are legal at the federal level in the United States. Hemp and hemp-derived products, even those for pets, were clarified as legal with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Pet owners can purchase hemp pet products legally, without the need for a veterinarian’s prescription.
Individual states can pass their own policies related to the regulation of hemp and hemp-derived products, and some have chosen to do so. If you’re looking to carry hemp pet products in your shop, be sure to review the hemp laws in your state. In most cases, it is possible to legally sell hemp pet products in your shop.
Hemp oil with CBD has shown to be well-tolerated in pets. Because Hemp for Pets™ products are made with hemp, they are non-intoxicating and will not cause pets to experience any euphoric effects. This is one of the main reasons why pet owners looking to buy pet products with CBD prefer those made from hemp.
Not all pet hemp products are the same. HempMeds® ensures the safety and quality of Hemp for Pets™ products through our responsible organic farming practices, and our rigorous manufacturing and testing procedures. Our non-GMO hemp made from certified seed is grown naturally by families of farmers in the Netherlands, without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or any chemical fertilizers. We also use non-toxic supercritical CO2 to safely extract the hemp oil from the plant.
Our pet hemp products for retailers are all put through our stringent Triple Lab Tested® process, which examines the safety and purity of our hemp oil and products three separate times throughout the manufacturing process. We are also proud members of the National Pet Supplement Council (NPSC) and therefore committed to the use of ethically-sourced hemp extract and natural ingredients and meeting the strictest testing standards.
