Medterra really stands out from the rest because of two main things: price and quality. The CBD Pet Joint Support is a holistic, natural product that consumers can feel confident to give to their much-loved furry companions.
The recipe is sound, as is the price. And on top of all of that, Medterra is transparent with its manufacturing practices and strives for the best quality CBD products on the market. You can’t really ask for more than that!
The Medterra CBD Pet Joint Support chews are not the cheapest pet CBD edibles on the market. The reason that Medterra scored 5/5 for price and value is that there is a lot more included in these chewable CBD treats than just CBD. Beneficial compounds such as MSM, chondroitin, and glucosamine are included in the formula, making it worth every penny.
The bag of CBD Pet Joint Support chews contains 30, 10 mg chews. In total, the bag contains 300 mg. It might not sound like much, but this is a heavy dose for a pet. The typical dosage for animals is 0.25 mg/lb of bodyweight. With that in mind, 10 mg per chew is a very strong dose of CBD.
Medterra grows hemp in the state of Kentucky under the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program License. The farms are certified by the US Hemp Authority, which puts in place strict regulations about hemp cultivation in the USA.
Though Medterra makes no claims to organic, the company doesn’t use pesticides in its cultivation and this is reflected in the CoAs.
This product is made for cats and dogs to support bones and joints with active compounds that compliment CBD’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. Medterra makes that very clear with its advertising and packaging. The chewable CBD biscuits make administering them to pets easy as they think they’re lucky enough to get a treat.
Medterra has other Pet CBD products available, such as the Pet CBD Tincture. This can be considered a variation of this product. However, we would have liked to see at least one other concentration for the CBD Pet Joint Support. Not all pets will require 10 mg of CBD, and many will require less, so a lower potency option would have been appreciated.
Medterra has included all of the vital elements of a joint support supplement for cats and dogs: CBD, glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. The specificity towards joints is what makes this formula perfectly fit for its purpose and effective as a treatment for domestic animals.
Medterra’s formula for its CBD Pet Joint Support product is so sound, pet owners might want to take it themselves (but probably best that you don’t).
Aside from containing CBD, the CBD Pet Joint Support chews also contain glucosamine and chondroitin, natural sugars produced by mammals that support cartilage and joints. In fact, these active ingredients are often used to treat arthritis and joint pain in humans.
At $34.99 for 30 soft chews (a total of 300 mg), we don’t consider this product cheap. What we do see is a lot of expertise in the formulation and a high-quality pet product.
The only downside of the CBD Pet Joint Support is that the individual chews contain 10 mg. For large dog owners, this is okay, but typical dosing recommendations indicate 0.25 mg per pound of bodyweight. For example, a 13 lbs cat should receive an initial dose of 3.25 mg. It would be difficult to administer the correct dose with these chews, and we anticipate the same kind of problem for most smaller animals.
Overall, this is an impressive product that is natural and gentle to support a furry companion’s joint health.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are two sugars naturally produced in the bodies of mammals. These compounds support the growth and function of cartilage.
Insufficient cartilage is often the primary causative factor of joint pain and arthritis. Many human-grade pharmaceuticals for arthritis also contain glucosamine and chondroitin. So while CBD helps your pet deal with pain, glucosamine and chondroitin contribute to the holistic healing of your pet’s joints and cartilage.
The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for Medterra’s CBD Pet Joint Support Soft Chews shows that the hemp extract is comprised of over 99% CBD.
This isn’t just impressive from an extraction standpoint — it also shows that Medterra is dedicated to providing purity and quality to animals, too.
Medterra makes all of its CBD products with hemp grown on its own proprietary farms in Kentucky. This means that farming practices have to be in accordance with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.
On top of this, Medterra’s hemp is backed by the US Hemp Authority. So consumers (even furry ones) can have confidence in Medterra’s farming practices and quality control.
Operating out of California, Medterra sells a range of CBD products for humans and animals. The pricing is extremely competitive, which we accredit to the fact that Medterra grows its own hemp rather than importing it.
Medterra’s hemp farms are in Kentucky, where the company is also a part of the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. This subjects Medterra to strict regulatory standards for growing hemp, including the fact that the crops must have a THC concentration of 0.2% or lower.
The company is also certified by the US Hemp Authority. This organization delivers regulatory standards and guidelines for hemp cultivation facilities to ensure quality and consistency throughout the industry.
With all of these credentials behind it, it’s no wonder Medterra is also backed by some big names in American sports. Lucas Glover, US Major Golf Champion, and Charlie Hoffman, four-time PGA winner are both ambassadors for Medterra. Billy Kemper and Alana Blanchard, both professional surfers, are also sponsored by Medterra.
Finally, Medterra partners with CVS Pharmacies to stock all of their products on the shelf.
Although Medterra doesn’t make any organic claims, nor is it organic certified, the Certificates of Analysis suggest good farming practices. The company swears that it never uses pesticides and the analyses demonstrate this. Quality and control are at the heart of what Medterra does — and formulating awesome products, too.
Well, definitely not humans! In all fairness, the formulation is so good that there are probably a lot of humans out there using very similar supplements. But alas, this product is made for animals, specifically those who suffer from joint pain.
The product is recommended for both dogs and cats, but pet owners should be very mindful of the weight of their pet, and how that corresponds to the dose. Each chew contains 10 mg, and for an average-sized cat, this is probably too heavy a dose.
The ingredients in the CBD Pet Joint Support adequately support pain relief as well as overall healing of the cartilage and joints.
More often than not, we compare prices based on human CBD products. If we compare the CBD Pet Joint Support with other CBD edibles on the market, the price is average.
They aren’t cheap by any means, but they don’t break the bank either. And for all of what you get inside this packet, aside from CBD, it’s worth the money. We think this is a very competitive price for the quality and the formula.

At first glance, 10 mg per chew doesn’t sound like a lot of CBD. But it’s important to remember that most domestic animals are much smaller than humans. They don’t require as much as humans to feel the therapeutic effects of CBD.
Plus, their endocannabinoid systems process cannabinoids in a different way to the human endocannabinoid system. So with that in mind, these are potent CBD dog treats. Be mindful to weigh your animal before dosing, as the typical dosage for pets is 0.25 mg per pound of body weight.

Medterra grows all of its hemp in Kentucky, USA. The farms themselves belong to Medterra, so there’s no middle man between cultivation, extraction, and bottling. This takes a lot of the guesswork out for customers, as there are regulatory standards in place for American hemp farming.
Medterra advertises that it is certified by the US Hemp Authority and is enrolled in the Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program in Kentucky.
The purpose of this product is very clear —to support joint health in domestic animals. Medterra also indicates this product for cats and dogs over 12 weeks of age.
The formula completely supports the purpose of this product. Along with CBD, Medterra has included glucosamine, chondroitin, and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM).
Glucosamine and chondroitin are sugars that are naturally produced by the mammalian body. These compounds lubricate the joints and encourage cartilage growth and function. MSM, on the other hand, is a compound often included in pet supplements for joint health. Its mechanism of action relies on the hypothesis that a sulfur deficiency is a major contributing factor to joint pain and arthritis for cats and dogs.
Medterra has also decided to create this supplement as a chewy treat. Most pet owners struggle to give capsules or tablets, so it’s nice to see they’ve chosen an ingestion method conducive to an easy delivery.
The active ingredients of each chew include:
Additional ingredients include:
This formula literally has no questionable ingredients. The only preservatives used are ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and calcium propionate. The latter is a naturally-formed organic salt that can be used to preserve food products. It’s a completely natural formula that supports joint health and pain relief.
Medterra says that it ships internationally, but when we tried to checkout, we couldn’t select an address outside of the USA. However, customers wanting access to Medterra’s products who can’t have a product sent directly to them can use a mail forwarding service such as Shipito.
Customers in the USA are entitled to free shipping on orders over $99. For everyone else, shipping is calculated based on the shipping service you want to use (such as Express).
Returns are very simple; customers have 30 days to lodge a return from the day that they receive the item. Once the return is approved, Medterra will issue a full refund.
Medterra really stands out from the rest because of two main things: price and quality.
The CBD Pet Joint Support is a holistic, natural product that consumers can feel confident to give to their much-loved furry companions. The recipe is sound, as is the price. And on top of all of that, Medterra is transparent with its manufacturing practices and strives for the best quality CBD products on the market. You can’t really ask for more than that!
