Over the last few years, hemp has gained popularity as effective treatment for a variety of problems–for both humans and dogs.
Small groups of natural-health focused German Shepherd owners started sharing their secret about this effective herb.
But recently, it started to show significant promise within the scientific community too.
Since hemp is still “new” for many German Shepherd owners… people are worried that it might not be the best choice for their best friend.
Because hemp has exploded in popularity so suddenly, I had a ton of questions.
Is It Safe? (Yep!)
Is It Legal? (Yes!)
Will My Dog Get High? (No!)
Is It Effective? (Definitely!)
How much do they need to take? (Dosaging is on the package!)
Is this just some passing trend? (I hope not!)
And most importantly…
Will it give Rondo the relief she so desperately needs??
That’s why I decided to put together this article revealing the top 5 hemp myths–helping German Shepherd owners discover the truth about hemp.
If you have a suffering pup just like my Rondo: read on!
1. Hemp is NOT Psychoactive
One of the biggest concerns is where hemp comes from.
Since it comes from the cannabis plant, people often think it will get their dog “buzzed.”
This is because it is confused with its famous cousin, THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol)–which is what gives that feeling.
Using a modern cold-pressed CO2 extraction method, only the hemp is extracted from the plant.
It keeps all the health and pain-relief benefits–and you don’t have to worry about your dog getting buzzed.
2. Hemp is Both Legal and Safe
Since hemp does NOT include psychoactive elements, it is both safe and legal.
In fact, many studies have shown hemp to be completely non-toxic and safe for consumption…
… Even when used in high doses, combined with other meds, or over long periods of time–unlike common prescriptions given to dogs to help with pain support.
Hemp supplements for dogs are a great way to ensure your pup is getting the tastiest, highest quality ingredients to support their joint health.

3. Hemp is an Anti-Inflammatory
When Rondo was in pain, most vets recommended NSAIDs and other over-the-counter pharmaceuticals.
While these can have their place, the side effects were just not worth it for Rondo.
That’s a big reason why I decided to research with safe and natural remedies.
Hemp contains natural anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritated joints and suppress the production of inflamed cells…
Which greatly improved Rondo's joint pain, aches, and flare-ups.
4. Hemp Reduces Anxiety
Yes, German Shepherds get anxious too… and it can be crippling.
Common things like traveling, thunderstorms, and being left at home can stress out your dog.
When their joints are aching and screaming at them too… it only makes matters worse.
Hemp can help minimize feelings of anxiety…
Which helps soothe your dog and promote feelings of happiness, comfort, and relief.
5. Hemp relieves aches and pains
Hemp is an amazing solution for naturally reducing pain.
According to one study, and even my own experience with Rondo, dogs given CBD treatment experienced LESS PAIN and increased activity with NO side effects.(2)
Wow. No wonder why it’s gaining so much popularity.
Plus, hemp provides healthy joint nourishment and pressure relief…
Which can naturally “block” pain signals, so your dog can stay active and comfortable as they age.
