How Pure Hemp Botanicals Got Started?
In 2015, Alex Seleznov founded Pure Hemp Botanicals in an effort to create a CBD company that offers plant-based products, that are eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Prior to starting Pure Hemp Botanicals, Alex worked as an accountant and specialized in helping startups and businesses in trouble. He eventually moved on to his real passion which was in hemp and its potential to heal both our environment and bodies.
Alex started his journey by learning all he could about organic farming. This lead him to the “Greenhouse Growing System” and “Advanced Plant Processing” which are both processes focused on reducing carbon footprints and implementing eco-friendly processes.
Pure Hemp Botanicals was founded on the principles of transparency, quality, sustainability, compassion, and charity. Their products and manufacturing processes were created with the welfare of the planet and their customers in mind.
The Pure Hemp Botanicals Pet CBD Oil is made with organic hemp for a range of dietary needs. They pride themselves on the fact their products are vegan, cruelty free, and non-GMO. The pet line offers 3 different dosage bottles of their CBD tinctures, and claim to be crafted with love and care for your house pets.
Pure Hemp Botanicals also gives 1% of proceeds from all CBD oil purchases and other products to Mercy for Animals, which is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to promoting compassionate food choices and bringing an end to cruel animal farming practices.
How We Tested?
You may have come across many Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD reviews in your search and unfortunately anyone can gather information from other reviews and make their own. Or maybe the review is skewed because they received the product for free in exchange for a more influential outcome.
Too put your mind at ease, this review isn’t sponsored or supported by Pure Hemp Botanicals in any way, shape or form.
We went through the ordering process mentioned in this review and paid with our own money. We also did not contact Pure Hemp Botanicals to let them know that we would be reviewing their products at any point.
Since our review of Pure Hemp Botanicals is completely independent, we were not influenced by them in any way. Our goal is to provide you with a sense of what the actual consumer experience is like from beginning to end.
We provide real reviews because you deserve real tried and true opinions, along with pros and cons that can help you make a well-informed decision about whether the product in question is something your own dog will enjoy or benefit from, and whether you will benefit in any way.
In summary, we ordered CBD products from Pure Hemp Botanicals, making sure to test all those made for dogs. A real dog ingested the CBD products and provided us with quick, trustworthy feedback.
Why You Should Trust Our Review of Pure Hemp Botanicals?
We actually tried these CBD products on one of our dogs. We did not copy or sum up information from other pet parents’ experiences, and we did not re-post Pure Hemp Botanicals own claims. We also wanted to see the products for ourselves as well as monitor how our dog responds to this CBD vs. what he has tried in the past.
Because my dog takes CBD for joint pain, without issues, he was the dog we used for this review. His name is Sampson and he is a 6 year old shepherd/pit bull mix who eats anything and everything, but can sense strange ingredients in his food. Sampson doesn’t have any health concerns, conditions, or special needs outside of some joint pains on occasion, but could stand to lose 5 to 10 pounds.
After placing an order with Pure Hemp Botanicals and receiving the products, Sampson spent the next 2 weeks testing the Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD products for dogs.
During the trial period, we watched for changes in Sampson’s health and behavior. Since he usually has joint pain when taking long hikes or walks, we made sure to keep him active and monitor his reaction to the CBD during this time.
Who This Review Is For
With so many CBD pet product reviews out there for average pet owners, we wanted to go further. Average pet owners just want a little push to decide if a CBD product is safe, inexpensive and tasty enough for the average dog to take.
This review is different. We wrote it with extra-engaged pet parents in mind. The people, who like us, only want the very best for their furry family members. People who want lab tested products as well as quality ingredients and do not mind spending a few extra bucks doing so.
We began by going to Pure Hemp Botanicals’ website and checking out their pet selections. They currently offer 3 types of pet tinctures for cats, dogs and livestock which are based on the dosage of MG’s or size of your animal.
The few reviews on the pet tincture pages are mostly positive and descriptions are fairly detailed. The Pure Hemp Botanicals website offers a news page with articles about the benefits of CBD, CBD recipes and more. There is also a behind-the-scenes video on their homepage, which shows their entire manufacturing process, from growing the plants to packaging the finished product.
With detailed descriptions, good reviews and a video, it is difficult to not be convinced that they offer a good pet CBD product, but that is not enough for us.
We purchased the dog CBD tincture for Sampson to try, and were not required to create a profile or sign up for a subscription. We selected the CBD dog tincture with 750 MGs designed for medium to large sized dogs.
If you want to become a member you will receive 20 bonus points and then you will earn points every time you shop. You get points for every dollar spent, and on your birthday and when you leave a review. These points can be redeemed for discounts on your purchases.
Pure Hemp Botanicals does not offer free shipping until you spend $75 of more. The shipping cost for us was $9.99. Shipping is also available outside of the United States.
Once we placed the order, we were notified via email when the order is processed, then notified once again when it shipped, providing us with a tracking number.
Pure Hemp Botanicals does offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you or your pet is not completely satisfied with their products.
My Pure Hemp Botanicals package arrived about a week after I placed the order in my mailbox. It was packed in a small cardboard box with tissue paper to keep items safe during transport. It also included a print out of my order with price and item.
Not much else to report on this no frills shipping. I received what I ordered in tact and have no complaints.
What Does Sampson Think About Pure Hemp Botanicals?
I began giving my dog Sampson the Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD dog tincture daily in his food. This process is much easier than trying to get the dropper in your dogs mouth but takes longer to take effect. He is not picky about what he eats but can sometimes sense things added to his food. This oil had no scent to it.
My dog weighs around 60 pounds so I added around 15mg or half the dropper of the CBD oil to his food at dinner. Pure Hemp Botanicals recommends between 12 mg to 19 mg for dogs 50 to 75 pounds per day, according to the chart on the back of the bottle. There is not a lot of information on dosing on the bottle or the website.
Sampson did not notice the CBD tincture mixed into his food and ate it with no complaints. After about an hour, after ingesting the tincture, he seemed more relaxed and comfortable while on his nightly walk.
During the two week trial of Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD Oil for Dogs, Sampson did show some improvement when getting up and down the stairs and had no problems on his nightly walks or weekend hikes. He did not have any adverse reactions to the CBD oil and did not seem to notice it added to his food.

How Much Does Pure Hemp Botanicals Cost?
Pure Hemp Botanicals Pet CBD tinctures are made specifically for animals, and dosages are based on your animals weight. There are 300 mg, 750 mg and 1500 mg bottles available for purchase and the price ranges from $34.95 to $74.95 a bottle.
The amount of mgs you choose ultimately depends on the how much your dog needs based on size or weight. The larger the dog, the higher the mgs.
They do offer free shipping on orders over $75.

Is Pure Hemp Botanicals A Good Choice?
Pure Hemp Botanicals is a good company and my dog did show improvements when using the CBD oil. They offer high quality, organic products with fair pricing and have a wide range of products for both humans and animals.
Pure Hemp Botanicals provides all certificates of analysis (COA) directly on their website and can be checked by putting your batch number in. They also offer returns and exchanges made within 14 days of delivery, on any unused product.
While dosing maybe something you have to experiment with and shipping is not free, it is still an affordable choice when looking for pet CBD oil.
