Why you shouldn’t buy CBD oil for dogs on Amazon
Amazon doesn’t officially sell products containing cannabidiol (CBD). But that doesn’t stop thousands of search results showing up for “CBD” on the Amazon marketplace. So what are all these products?
Amazon’s stance on CBD
Amazon clearly prohibits the sale of CBD in its marketplace. The retail giant’s Seller Central website puts it in writing:
“Listings for products containing cannabidiol (CBD) are prohibited, including but not limited to:
- Full-spectrum hemp oil
- Rich hemp oil
- Products that have been identified as containing CBD by LegitScript”
These compliance requirements explicitly mention CBD among a long list of other substances, which begs the question: are the CBD pet products for sale on Amazon all fakes? Well, yes and no.
So, what exactly is the ‘CBD oil’ I bought from Amazon?
Much to the annoyance of genuine CBD producers, who can’t currently sell their products on Amazon, the products you’ll find on the site are likely to come from one of three sub-par categories:
These products are marketed within the general area of ‘CBD oil’ or ‘CBD for dogs,’ but close inspection reveals that their packaging and ingredients lists stop short of actually containing cannabidiol.
Unfortunately, many are taken in by these borderline fraudulent products, as shown by the negative reviews and comments left under many listings. But others have zero, or suspiciously plentiful and positive reviews—so watch out.
It sounds too obvious to point out, but if the product doesn’t say CBD on the label or the ingredients list, it may not be CBD! We can’t really say for certain what these oils contain—which is kind of the point: is it worth the uncertainty and risk of mislabeled oils, especially when giving them to your pooch?
Off-brand CBD products
With mislabelling abound, there’s a good chance that some of the products listed on Amazon do actually contain some amount of CBD. Because Amazon bans the word ‘CBD’ from product names and descriptions, and can easily trawl listings for those terms, any company advertising their CBD credentials will immediately be removed from the marketplace.
Therefore, those looking to flog CBD on Amazon will often use winking descriptions including terms like ‘hemp extract’ or ‘hemp oil for pain and inflammation.’ When the Washington Post looked into the CBD levels contained in products with these sorts of descriptions, they found that 11 of 13 tested products did actually contain CBD oil. Though, levels were often well below those found in legitimate products.
So, if you’re deadset on shopping for personal or pet CBD oil on Amazon, it may be possible. But you’ll need to sift through euphemistic product descriptions and take a gamble on whether your chosen product actually contains useful levels of CBD—as well as safe, non-toxic ingredients and production methods.
Hemp seed oil
The third category of products that show up under searches for ‘CBD oil for dogs’ on the Amazon marketplace is hemp oil.
Unlike the above, hemp oil or hemp seed oil is a legitimate product, but it’s not CBD. Hemp seed oil is pressed from the seeds on cannabis plants and is most commonly used in cooking, cosmetics, and various household and personal uses.
Your dog may appreciate hemp seed oil if they need a boost in Omega fatty acids. The oil is super-high in good fats and antioxidants, which can help improve joint and skin health. A study on human participants from the Journal of Dermatological treatments found that a diet regularly including hemp seed oil can reduce the dryness and itchiness associated with dermatitis.

Will Amazon ever sell real CBD oil for dogs
(and what about Whole Foods?)
Amazon’s unique place in the US economy no doubt throws up many questions concerning its rights and ability to sell cannabis products and medical supplements. But theoretically speaking, there shouldn’t be any direct barrier to them selling CBD oil.
Since the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill into law, US companies have been free to grow, produce, transport, and sell products containing industrial hemp, which is cannabis with extremely low concentrations (no more than 0.3 percent) of THC—the compound in cannabis that makes you high.
Most, if not all CBD oil for dogs is made from industrial hemp (and ideally from organic farms), so they fall well within the 2018 FDA legislation.
The real reason why Amazon hasn’t yet come on board with CBD is likely to do with its ability to monitor and maintain its marketplace according to FDA standards. In other words, Amazon may be playing it cautious with all cannabis products, due to the risk of bad actors using the site to sell marijuana.
That said, Amazon tends to make announcements concerning their site without much of a build-up, and sometimes without any announcements at all, so things may change literally overnight. We’ll let you know if they do.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the cannabis plant. While marijuana may be the most well-known form of cannabis, CBD oil is derived from the drug’s safer and more medicinal cousin—hemp. People have been using hemp for medicinal purposes for nearly 1,000 years, and the world of holistic veterinary science is embracing CBD oil for its healing properties. Evidence shows it’s a natural and effective treatment for a growing list of medical and behavioural issues in dogs.There are over 60 chemicals found in the cannabis plant, and they’re all called cannabinoids. Out of those 60, there are two main types: cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Most people recognize THC as the psychoactive substance in marijuana that makes you high, but CBD is not as familiar. As a therapeutic cannabinoid, isolated CBD oil is safe and non-psychoactive. It stimulates the body’s endocannabinoid system to promote overall healing and wellness.If you’re ready to try CBD oil with your dog, then “CBD OIL FOR DOGS” by Olivier Michael is your go-to book to educate you on all you need to know about using CBD Oil for dogs. You will find this book informative and interesting. Enjoy the read!
