You may have heard some of your friends and fellow pet owners talk about hemp oil for dogs and cats.
But you may be asking yourself...
"What exactly does hemp oil do?"
"What do I need to look out for when choosing the best hemp oil for my dog or cat?"
"Can it really help my pet's restlessness, promote joints, and promote a healthy coat and skin?"
All this (and more) will be answered below!
Now to better understand hemp oil, it's important to know the different types of hemp oil you can buy.
There are 3 different types you will want to consider:
In this article, we discuss the differences between isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum and which one could be a good fit for your furry best friend.
But to understand these 3 types of hemp oil for pets, we first must talk about the differences between THC and hemp oil.
THC is the psychoactive compound in certain plants in this family. Simply put, THC is the substance that causes people to get high. THC is also found in hemp plants, but hemp plants contain no more than 0.3% THC, which is not enough to cause anyone to feel high.
THC tends to cause people to feel a tingling sensation in their body, and when that goes away, you feel light as a feather while also being incredibly relaxed. THC also causes people to process the world around them a lot slower than usual, which can be fun for some.
Hemp oil is the non-psychoactive compound in hemp plants. Simply put, it will not get you high.
Hemp oil is jam-packed with active plant compounds, flavonoids, terpenes, essential oils, and healthy omega fatty acids. It is filled with powerful nutrients to help make our bodies feel vibrant!
Now that we have a better understanding about hemp oil and THC, we can talk about the 3 different types of hemp oil. Like we mentioned before we have:
2. Full Spectrum
3. Broad Spectrum
What’s the difference between these 3 types of hemp oil you ask? Let’s continue!
Isolates are the purest form. To make an isolate, it goes through an extra extraction process once the initial extraction has occurred.
Therefore, isolates are about 99% pure and have most other plant compounds removed. Think, no terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds… just hemp oil.
Compared to isolates, full spectrum hemp oil is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum.
Full spectrum contains all of the other naturally present whole plant compounds (we are talking flavonoids, terpenes, essential oils, and omega fatty acids).
But have no fear...the THC concentration will never surpass the maximum allowance of 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit in the United States.
If you have a dog or cat who suffers from arthritis, separation anxiety, chronic body pain, or poor sleep, we know how hard it is to see them in pain everyday...limping up the stairs, crying at night, barking as you leave the house. It's painful to watch.
But it doesn't have to be that way!
Many of our customers have told us that full spectrum hemp oil has helped their pet's restlessness, promote joints, and promote a healthy coat and skin. If you're tired of using harsh, artificial drugs and want to try an all-natural solution, this could be a great option for you!
Hemp oil classified as broad spectrum is a middle ground between isolates and full spectrum. Broad spectrum is essentially the same as full spectrum, with the only difference being that broad spectrum has been stripped of all traces of THC.
Choosing the right hemp oil for you is a personal choice, but it’s hard to make a decision when you don’t understand the effects different forms of hemp oil!
Essentially, full spectrum is going to be the most effective because of something known as the “entourage effect.”
This phenomenon explains the way plant compounds, flavonoids, terpenes, essential oils, and omega fatty acids come together to enhance the positive effects of hemp oil. To summarize, the plant compounds bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Yep, that’s right!
Both humans and mammals alike have an internal system for processing hemp oil. The responsibility of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain health and balance within our bodies. It’s very similar to our nervous systems and our immune systems, but for active hemp plant compounds instead!

"My dog loves this stuff! He had been limping for a few weeks, to the point where I even took him to the vet to be examined. I didn't want to give him tons of pharmaceuticals and was looking for a natural remedy we could use long-term. This stuff is THE BEST. Within days his limping subsided and he was back to his happy self."
- Mel, proud dog mom of a healthy welsh Corgi
"We are seeing a visible decrease in our Chihuahua Rico’s anxiety. He’s interacting with people other than his favorite person and has even went on outings! For our older crew like our foster Ruxpin, we notice a little more pep in his step. Obviously great tasting too as they all line up for it!"
- Jenny, proud dog mom of an adorable Chihuahua and Great Pyrenees
