There's A Difference. Products labeled "Pet Hemp Oil" don't typically contain CBD the primary active ingredient. That's why you may find the price point substantially less than a true Pet CBD Oil, like Jasper Sorën Pet CBD.

Study the label of your Pet CBD product. What did you buy? The level of CBD concentrate in a 1oz bottle makes a difference per dose, per dropper. For example, a 1oz bottle of 30mg CBD has only 1mg of CBD per dropper.
Compare and Save. Jasper Sorën high concentrate 3,000mg Canine CBD 1oz bottle offers 75mg of CBD per dropper. Gives you greater flexibility for an individualized treatment plan for your holistic approach to wellness for your pet.

First, pet owners need to understand that there are no published uniform or clinical guidelines to inform use and daily dosage for CBD supplements for animals or humans. Science is lagging behind the public's interest and use of CBD as a natural alternative therapy. Veterinarian clinical trials are underway in the U.S. and globally. The one notable exception for humans, EPIDIOLEX, the first and only FDA-approved "prescription cannabidiol" (CBD) for treatment of severe seizure conditions in children.
It is also interesting to note that, since 1999, the United States government holds the patent on CBD when medical research first showed the benefits of CBD as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant. https://www.google.com/patents/US6630507
CBD Medical Clinical Trials Are Underway. Veterinarian Medical Universities, ranking top 10 in the world, have begun conducting medical clinical trials on the use of CBD for equine and small companion animals which universities include Colorado State University, Cornell University, and the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Vet). SEE our Pet Blog page for article on Penn Vet's Clinical Study Of CBD And Dogs With Osteoarthritis.
The National Institutes Of Health (NIH), a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the largest biomedical research agency in the world. The NIH is currently tracking human research on CBD. There are currently 1,300+ medical studies completed and/or ongoing around the world. https://www.clinicaltrials.gov.
A Natural Therapy Solution. Veterinarians, as a profession, as well as leading cannabis industry professionals, interested in CBD as a natural therapy solution are also conducting their own field studies on the use of CBD for equine and small animal patients. Reporting that CBD can be used to manage a variety of disorders because of its exceptional natural properties as an anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory therapy -without the animal becoming sleepy and without the animal experiencing any psychoactive or intoxicating effects. It is the THC component of marijuana that creates the "high" or "stoned" effect.
Practicing veterinarians report using CBD for equines and companion animals for a variety of reasons to help with, among other things, post surgical treatment, reduce swelling, ease comfort, rehabilitation therapy, appetite stimulant, separation anxiety and travel anxiety to name a few.
This is why CBD has become the cannabinoid of choice because it is a non-psychoactive and non-toxic natural substance highly tolerable in animals and humans. Based on our research, there are no reported incidents of "overdoses" using CBD.
Daily Dosing. At Jasper Sorën, we have uniquely formulated Non-THC Pet CBD products applying a common sense approach to finding products that work and can produce the best results. Our unparalleled high concentrate formulas offer flexible dosing and individualized treatment options for pet owners and their furry companions to achieve desired results.
Based on industry research of the CBD "daily dose" topic, here's what we have found. As a starting point, a common denominator is that the amount of CBD required to treat you pet depends on the condition being treated and the size of the patient. And, while size (or weight) is a factor, veterinarians and industry professionals also report that different species have different physiological differences (e.g. how a body functions or processes substances, like metabolism.) So for example humans, as a species, are different from animals; and horses, as a species, are different than dogs, just as cats, as a species, are different from dogs.
Each species processes substances differently unique to their own bodily function. Dosing is one key aspect of what the veterinarian and medical profession is now studying in clinical trials to enable them to publish "scientific" findings about the relationship of these factors that produces the most effective and best result - e.g. medical condition, patient weight, mg daily dose. Yes other factors are considered depending on the clinical study performed; so our comments here are only intended to be a general overview of information on the topic.
What we have found as a result of our own personal experience (SEE Our Story) is that consistency with daily dosing produces the best results. A common sense factor. Because there are yet any published clinical guidelines to inform use and daily dosage, reported clinical research standards recommend starting with a low or moderate dose daily, and if relief is inadequate, gradually increase the daily dose amount in small increments and/or maintenance dose for desired results.
Based on our research, some veterinarians recommend daily dose amounts using the standard "mg per day" in relationship to the condition being treated e.g. is it for general health, chronic pain, anxiety, or for a specific condition like ulcers. Others, like cannabis industry professionals, recommend daily does amounts using the "mg per day" in relationship to body weight. The truth of the matter is that until medical clinical trials complete and publish their guidelines to inform use and dosage, reported "recommended daily dose" for animals, large and small, remains at present to vary quite a bit in regard to a recommended "mg per day" dose.
For all these reasons, we do not provide pet owners with a "recommended" daily dosage list; but rather suggest that pet owners consider these factors in their own individualized treatment options for their pets; hence the reason for our three different high concentrate CBD products for flexible daily dosing to achieve desired results.
The following will give you an good idea of the flexibility with daily dose amounts using our high concentrate CBD Pet Products. Also consider that if you use a moderate daily dose the longer your supply lasts which makes our product the best value for your money:
Equine CBD 2 oz bottle | 8,000mg CBD concentrate | one dropper 160mg
Canine CBD 1 oz bottle | 3,000mg CBD concentrate | one dropper 75mg
Feline CBD 1 oz bottle | 2,000mg CBD concentrate | one dropper 50mg
Again, we love hearing from customers and invite you to share with us your experience using our CBD products. We will be sharing our customer reviews on a regular basis.
What is “CBD”?
CBD is the medical abbreviation for “cannabidiol,” a primary active compound (from over a hundred compounds) found in the marijuana plant aka cannabis. CBD, like other marijuana compounds, is extracted from the plant using high-tech extraction equipment. Once extracted, CBD is like a thick sap and can further be refined into a granular isolate to blend with other liquid ingredients, such as Hemp oil, to make the Pet CBD Oil product aka tincture.
The acronyms CBD and THC are the most widely used acronyms in the industry because they are both primary compounds or “cannabinoids” extracted from the plant; but there’s a big difference between the two because THC is the compound that gets you “high,” not the CBD.
Will My Pet Get “High” If I Give Them CBD? No.
THC is the intoxicating compound of the plant, the “getting stoned” feeling that has the mind-altering effect. CBD, on the other hand, has no intoxicating or mind-altering component or effect. Rather, CBD is known for its medicinal qualities and benefits only, which natural compound again comes from the plant. So, no, your furry loved one will not get “stoned.”
That’s what the medical clinical trials are all about – using pure CBD and studying the use of CBD for medical conditions in animals and humans to treat anxiety, arthritis, seizures, neurological disorders like Epilespy, PTSD, as well as Alzheimer’s, to name a few.
Product Label | Ingredients | No THC For Pets
As far as our pets are concerned, No THC. It is not good for animals. When choosing a Pet CBD, look at the label, read the ingredients. The product should be pure CBD (No THC) and certainly no more than 0.3% THC level, the legal threshold amount which indicates trace amounts of THC.
Consider also the ingredients being used – what the CBD is blended with – becausehuman CBD Tinctures (Oils) may contain sweeteners that can be toxic to pets. Another reason to know all your ingredients is because you don’t want to rush to judgment about the CBD ingredient itself – blending agents like Coconut Oil, sound nice, but can cause diarrhea in some dogs, for example.
So, as a pet owner, be aware there are a wide variety of pet products on the market – some combine CBD and THC in the product, and some Pet CBD Oils are just pure CBD, like ours. The combination CBD and THC, when blended together in a tincture, for example, may arguably have stronger medicinal effects; but that has been reported for human use. On the other hand, THC is not good for pets. So, read the label, know what you are giving your pet. THC should be a listed ingredient on the label if its present.
You will find that some Pet CBD products, like ours, advertise lab-tested “Non-THC” or “No THC” and make available the independent lab-report on their web site, like Jasper Sorën Pet CBD products.
What Does “Lab-Tested” Mean?
Independent lab testing is for quality assurance and also to measure THC levels to ensure “the not more than 0.3% THC” threshold -- often times you may see “ND” on a lab report which means “none detected” e.g. no THC.
Lab-testing is also done to ensure the product is solvent free, and free of any toxins, chemicals, or naturally occurring substances, like molds or mildews that can arise during cultivation of the plant, that may prove unhealthy for consumption for humans as well as animals.
With Pet CBD, Not Every Manufacturer Is Testing Their Product
The challenge for consumers is the learning curve; and because Pet CBD products are not entirely regulated (this has a lot to do with the 2018 Federal Farm Bill and legalization of Industrial Hemp – Hemp Oil vs. CBD Oil article coming soon) not everyone selling Pet CBD lab-tests their product – whether a Pet CBD oil (tincture) or dog treat, etc. So just be aware that some pet products are lab-tested and some are not.
