There are a lot of companies currently trying to enter the ever growing CBD market but how do you know if they are a good quality product, worth trying and worth the investment.
In the following review I am going to take a look at CBDPet which markets a line of tinctures (oils) for pets (dogs and cats) and provide answers to these questions.
Who is CBDPet?
CBDPet is just one brand within the NutraPure family. Other brands include CBDPure and Excellent Hemp. CBDPet is the brand that is designated for the health of household pets and the equine market.
NutraPure is a premier research and distribution company within the hemp arena. They are based in Vancouver, Washington and have been in business for about 6 years. They do have an A+ accreditation from the BBB and were recently listed as one of the first 11 companies to be licensed by Washington’s Department of Agriculture under the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot program.
They have an experienced team dedicated to the research, development, optimization, and marketing of premium oil-based hemp extracts and natural hemp derivatives. They are striving to become the leading global brand in hemp solutions, expanding to reach consumers across the globe.
There are a number of factors that go into determining a good quality CBD Oil. Let’s take a look at those factors and see how CBDPet
- Source and Purity: This oil is made with organically grown hemp from Colorado. The hemp is 100% free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients.
- The hemp plant is a hyperaccumulator and absorbs everything it finds in the soil it is cultivated in. As a result any pesticides, heavy metals, fungus or bacteria that is in the ground or used on the plant will end up in the plant and as a result in the final product. As a result we are looking for product that is organic and free of any synthetics and artificial ingredients like this product.
- Production Method:
- They use a CO2 extraction process. This method uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemical (like CBD) from the plant. This process is free of harsh chemicals, is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. CO2 extraction is considered one of the most expensive however one of the safest plant extraction methods in the world.
- The oil is cold pressed and unrefined. This means that the plant is minimally processed using mechanical extraction and low-temperature controlled conditions. Using this method allows the end product (the oil) to retain the natural value of the hemp plant without the use of any chemicals.
- Cold pressed and unrefined – Retains the natural value of the hemp plant without the use of any chemicals, CO2 extraction – cleanest and safest possible method to ensure they maintain the full spectrum cannabinoids
- Full Spectrum: CBDPet uses the whole plant rather than just bits and pieces. Studies have shown that this provides the best therapeutic effects as you are getting all the benefits of the plant and as well as the most CBD.
- Amount of THC: All OF THEIR oils contain less than 0.3% THC.
CBDPet prides themselves on having the highest standards for quality, purity and potency. They use a third party to test for Cannabinoid Profiling, Pesticide Testing, Microbiological Screening, Terpene Analysis and Residual Solvent Testing.
They provide do provide a copy of the recent lab test results on their website.
CBDPet only offers one product in their pet line (at this time) and it is a 100 mg CBD Oil tincture. They do state that this is the same product that they sell under their other CBD Line, CBDPure, which is directed at people. Therefore, if you need a higher mg bottle you can purchase that thru CBDPure instead.
- $24.99 for one bottle
- $67.50 for three bottles (a 10% discount or a savings of $2.49 per bottle)
- $119.99 for six bottles (a 20% discount or savings of $9.98 per bottle)
Despite being the same product the 100 mg bottle of CBDPet is actually slightly cheaper than the 100 mg bottle of CBDPure ($29.99). This is something I have seen often with some medications where it has been cheaper to purchase the pet version despite the products being practically identical and therefore this was not a surprise.
The price itself is reasonable as the price is determined based on the quality of the product. Purchasing more product does provide a discount so it could be advantageous to purchase in “bulk” or to get with another pet parent when making a purchase.
CBDPet currently ships within the United States to all but three states (they do not ship to Arkansas (AR), Kansas (KS), and Louisiana (LA). They do not currently ship internationally.
The CBDPure website does state that they can ship CBDPure to every U.S. State and that they do not ship internationally outside of the United States, Canada and U.K. So if you do wish to have this product for your pet but in a location CBDPet does not ship to however CBDPure does, you can use the CBDPure oil for your pet instead.
Shipping is not included in the price and currently appears to be $6.95 for most locations.
CBDPet does provide excellent customer service. They provide a live chat on their website and the people answering have been able to answer all of my questions promptly. The staff is friendly and appears to be well-informed (with both the CBDPet and CBDPure products) with immediate answers to your questions.
They offer a 90 day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are not happy with the product be it that your pet is not experiencing the benefits you were looking for or are just not happy with the result you can send your order back within 90 days for a refund of your purchase price.
- Each bottle is 2 oz (60 ml)
- 1 ml (approximately ½ a dropper) contains 1.6 mg of CBD (a daily serving is considered to be approximately 2 ml (a ½ a dropper twice a day) and contains 3.3 mg of CBD)
- Contains less than 0.3% THC
- Full Spectrum
- Made with 100% Natural and Organic Hemp
Their website has a spot dedicated to testimonials of their product. Some of those testimonials can be found below.
- 100% organic hemp
- CO2 extraction method
- Full spectrum
- Good strength CBD
- Third party lab testing – with results easily available to view on their website
- 90 day refund policy
- Reasonable pricing
- Easy to use – put in your dog’s food or on a treat and it will absorb quickly
- Only available in the US (minus three states) – under the CBDPet brand
- Shipping is not free (some other companies offer free shipping)
- Currently only provide tinctures for pets (no treats) – Although I advocate to at least start with oils rather than treats in order to determine the right dosage for your dog it is nice to have treats for those dogs that just won’t easily take the oil
CBD Oil can provide a number of benefits for your dog (see other articles on this website for more specific information) and CBDPet provides a good quality product that can help your dog with those issues.
CBDPet provides a high quality organic product and provide a 90-day return policy. This is a product that I feel comfortable using for my dogs and would recommend to others.
