Awesome new tool to calculate how much CBD to take, CBD Dosage Calculator

My dog is old.  Gingerale is an Australian Cattle Dog who’s been steadfast by my side for over 14 years.  She started going blind and having the first signs of arthritis ~ 3 years ago.   

Of course, I sleuthed out CBD products to give her.  First trying capsules and eventually finding Mt Baker Dog Treats.  The one constant question that no one could answer was how much does my little girl need? 

The price of CBD is no joke so while I want to make sure I give her enough CBD; how much is too much and how often should I give it to her?  

Enter CBD Dosage Calculator. In a few easy clicks I was able to find out exactly how much to give her and given recommendations on how to start low and increase her dosage as her tolerance builds. I found out I’m giving her way too little daily CBD and not dosing her enough times throughout the day.  What a great tool to figure out the proper CBD Dosage!

Of course, I’ve now adjusted her medicating schedule and am also looking into a few other new products we can carry here at Hempfest Central, our industrial hemp boutique, to help her and all the other pets out there that will benefit from CBD.


The really cool thing about the CBD Dosage Calculator site is that it calculates for dogs, cats, or horses as well as humans. 

I cannot tell you how many times someone browsing our CBD products asks for dosing information.  So much goes into answering that question!  Why are you using CBD?  How much do you weigh?  Luckily, we can use in store and help people figure out exactly how much to take. 

At Hempfest Central we sell a variety of CBD & CHABA lines to support your health and wellbeing!  You can visit CBD Dosage Calculator before you visit or just ask and we’ll help you figure it out while you’re here.

We’re located at 3220 NE 125th St here in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood.  Our hours are Wednesday – Friday, 10:00 am – 7:00 PM and Saturday 1:00 – 7:00 pm.  Not in our area?  You can shop online HERE

Remember to shop local, buy more hemp, & support businesses that align with your value stream!

Producing Seattle Hempfest is a labor of Love.

Producing Seattle Hempfest is a labor of Love. We’ve worked, scattered throughout the state, from our homes, in solidarity but solitude, meeting in living rooms, coffee shops, & public meeting halls. Exploiting the invent of the internet and using tools like Skype and Google docs, we’ve rolled up one tight, phat, Hempfest after another. It’s a very intense process and illustrates the dedication and devotion of our core team many of whom sacrifice all else to make sure that Seattle Hempfest is the shiny new penny she is each year.

Each year, we give birth to a beautiful, bouncing Seattle Hempfest. Each year her gestation is different. The City and Parks Departments remold her and force us into a model of constant redesign. It’s amazing how it almost becomes Hempfest from scratch each year. Not a year has gone by in the past decade where they didn’t impede us with a construction project or other restriction that threatens our existence. Now it’s a walking bridge. With an ever changing completion date that impacts 2012’s production greatly.

What a relief that we’ll be facing all this turmoil, head on, from our first ever office! We’re moving into a combination headquarters, retail space located at 12351 Lake City Way NE here in Seattle. Hempfest Central will be the catalyst for our ever growing organization. Not only will she provide a home base from which to coordinate our beloved festival, she’ll also provide us with an opportunity to marry our festival merch in a retail location with our soon to be launched web stores.

We will be your one stop hemp shop carrying hemp clothes, accessories, foods, books, pet & skin care products. If we don’t have it; we can get it! We’ll carry all the gear and accessories that make Seattle Hempfest the magical place she is to shop. Everything about cannabis, but cannabis.

Hempfest Central will be the hempiest place on earth!

Follow our progress and watch us grow at

It’s an honor to have you along!
