Enjoy another multimedia experience with the Tortus Mountain Sages, as they explore and spread education about hemp through its many forms. Today, the Sages examine how hemp products for pets, such as Odessa’s Essential Health Pet CBD tinctures, truly do allow our furry friends to live their best lives – and better ours in the process. Watch, learn, and be well.


It is a little difficult to experience something through your dog, but when they are happy and feeling well, you notice the difference. So I have been giving my dog some hemp extracts and have had various results. My dog deals with separation anxiety and some pain in her back legs from an accident with a car when she was young.I think Odessa’s Pet CBD tinctures have a really great formula. I like that they use hemp seed oil as their carrier oil. This provides dogs with omega acids, which improve their coat and help lubricate joints for aging dogs.Odessa’s is pretty strong for a pet product, 600mg of active CBD, but this potent formula is a nice supplement for dogs who are aging or recovering from injury. While giving my dog Odessa’s formula, I could tell she was less anxious. This is great when you are trying to stay busy without stressing your dog’s anxiety levels. She really likes taking this supplement. When I have this formula in my hand, she starts wagging her tail and sitting down in front of me! I think that’s a good sign.My neighbor has also been giving Odessa’s to his 14-year-old lab mix and has seen huge improvements in mobility and mood. I even noticed his dog is much more active now than when she wasn’t taking the formula.  Odessa’s website is helpful and their FAQ page is a great place to find factual information on how CBD and hemp products affects animals. I really like how clearly this product is labeled, which helps to figure out my favorite friend’s perfect dosage level for “dog happiness.”

What Method of CBD is Best for Me?

Average Dose:

1 drop is 1.33 mg of CBD.  450 drops in each bottle.Dosing for pets is recommended based on size. Small dogs up to 25 lbs, 1-5 drops (4-30 mg). Medium-sized dogs between 25-65 lbs, 3-10 drops (10-65 mg). Large dogs over 65 lbs, 5-12 drops (20-80 mg). For cats, start with just 1 drop – felines are sensitive. Maximum dosage for any animal can cause sleepiness.


Average to higher end. The 600 mg bottle sells for $65. This is a good buy, but there are cheaper formulas out there for the budget-minded.


Anti-inflammation, pain relief, and anti-anxiety properties. The tinctures also promote joint health.
