About Tamadori CBD
Pet owners are always looking for the best products for their furry friends and that’s exactly what Tamadori seeks to provide. This family-run business was created out of love and passion for cats with the goal of inspiring cat lovers and promoting unique products.
The name Tamadori comes from a combination of the founders’ two cats: Tama and Midori.
Tama was rescued from the Ellen M. Gifford Cat Shelter in Brighton, MA. Her name comes from the Japanese word meaning “round” and is actually the most common name for cats in Japan. Midori was rescued from the Animal Rescue League of Boston, her name derived from the Japanese word meaning “green.” Tamadori is the combination of these two names, but the founders also think it’s fitting because “dori” means “street” in Japanese – they imagine their site as a stroll down a virtual street curated specifically for cat lovers.
More than just a brand in and of itself, Tamadori is a small, family-run business based out of Greater Boston. They offer a wide variety of fun and unique gifts for cats and cat lovers ranging from toys, apparel, and treats to CBD products and more.
What Kind Of CBD Products Does Tamadori Offer?
The Tamadori Collection is described as, “an online specialty cat shop featuring carefully selected products for cats and cat lovers alike.” The founders seek to feature products that go above and beyond what you’d find in the typical pet store – products that have personality. They keep their product selection small to ensure everything meets their high quality standards.
When it comes to CBD, Tamadori currently has one product to offer:
- CBD Hemp Oil for Cats
In addition to their CBD oil, Tamadori offers a variety of products for both cats and cat lovers.
The Tamadori Collection includes several cat food and water bowls, harnesses, cat carriers and playpens, cat brushes, toys, beds, and apparel. The line for humans includes apparel like socks, t-shirts, and hats as well as mugs, desk organizers, jewelry, and more.
Sourcing And Manufacturing
The founders of Tamadori work with a variety of manufacturers to offer the best prices on the best gifts and products for cats and cat lovers.
They partner with manufacturers in the U.S. and abroad, so they make note that shipping may take a little bit longer than with some online retailers.
When it comes to their CBD oil for cats, Tamadori says the following:
“Tamadori Collection CBD Oil for cats is made and shipped from the United States and we guarantee fast shipping to our customers. We also offer a 90-day money back guarantee. Our CBD Oil for Cats is made from natural cannabidiol derived from US grown hemp. Each bottle contains 30 ml of CBD Oil with 500 mg of hemp oil for improving relaxation and optimal health. If you are not satisfied with our product, we guarantee to return your hard-earned money.”
It’s not uncommon for CBD brands to state that their products are made in the United States without disclosing exactly where the hemp is grown.
Overall, we’re not concerned about the quality or safety of Tamadori CBD. Their products are third-party tested. In fact, we reviewed two Certificate of Analyses for the 500mg broad-spectrum CBD hemp oil – see the results below in our detailed review.
What Do Customers Think Of Tamadori CBD?
When shopping for cat products, it’s important to do your research to make sure the product you end up with is safe for your pet. Supplements like CBD can vary greatly in quality, so it’s particularly essential that you do your research. It also doesn’t hurt to figure out what other customers are saying.
Because Tamadori is a smaller company, we weren’t able to find too many reviews. The only testimonials we could find were posted on the Tamadori website, so it isn’t surprising to see that they were all positive.
“Regarding dosing, it took some trial and error, but we found putting a drop on a Greenie treat worked best for us. At first, we tried mixing it in with the wet food, which didn’t go well. Our cat, Bella, figured out there was something in there and wouldn’t finish it. She eats the treats so quickly that she doesn’t notice the CBD oil on them.
I have tried other CBD products before and they made Bella sleepy, so we stopped giving it to her. The dosage recommendation on this product was better and she doesn’t get drowsy. We give 3 drops per day and have found her to be less aggravated. She has an issue where she chases her tail and bites her feet, but the CBD calms her and greatly reduces this behavior.” – Benjamin M. from Pittsburgh, PA
“They were really responsive in answering my questions about their product, which made me feel more comfortable. I have a calico cat that has always been a little neurotic. When we first adopted her 7 years ago, she tended to over-groom and lick the hair right off of her legs…
I decided to try giving her CBD oil and I have been very happy with the results so far after 3 weeks. She went from vomiting almost daily to maybe once a week, and I’ve been able to cut down her Atopica dose to once a week without any problems. She seems much calmer and happier to me with just 2 drops a day.”- Crystal R. from Boston, MA
Tamadori CBD – Top Product Reviewed
|Product Name||Type||Concentration||Price||Price per Mg. CBD|
|CBD Hemp Oil for Cats||Oil||500mg||$59.99||$0.12|
This CBD Hemp Oil for cats comes in a 30ml. (1 ounce) bottle that contains 500mg of CBD. As a broad-spectrum CBD product (rather than full spectrum), this hemp oil doesn’t contain any THC. The only other added ingredient is MCT oil which improves absorption of CBD by the bloodstream.
In testing this CBD oil, we found that our cats weren’t particularly interested. Upon further investigation, we were a little surprised (in a good way) to find that the oil has almost no detectable scent. While this can be a good thing for cats with sensitive noses, it doesn’t make the oil very appealing on its own. We even tested a drop ourselves and found it to be virtually tasteless.
Tamadori recommends administering this CBD by dropping it directly into your cat’s mouth or by rubbing into its gums. We can see how being low on odor and flavor might be a benefit in this case. Another option is to mix the oil into your cat’s food.
This CBD is oil is designed to provide the following benefits:
- Eases inflammation to support mobility
- Promotes a sense of relaxation and mental well-being
- Relieves occasional stiffness and soreness
- Supports strong and healthy immunity
- Boosts skin and coat health
Additionally, Tamadori notes that their CBD hemp oil is completely free from THC, so you don’t have to worry about accidental intoxication or psychoactive effects. They say their CBD is made and shipped from the United States, derived from US-grown hemp. The product is third-party tested and backed by a 90-day money-back guarantee.

How Much Does Tamadori Cost?
Pet CBD products can be expensive, so we understand you want to know the details of this brand.
We found that Tamadori CBD was a little more expensive than some brands we’ve come across, but they do offers discounts when you place a larger order. It’s worth nothing that, with the 500mg concentration of Tamadori CBD oil, one bottle could last you several months.
A single bottle of hemp oil for cats is priced at $59.99, but you can save over 35% by purchasing 2 bottles or 50% by buying 3. When you purchase 2 bottles of Tamadori Hemp Oil for Cats, you’ll receive a discounted price of $49.99 each. If you purchase 3 bottles, you’ll get them for 50% off, or $39.99 each.
Because shipping is free, you don’t have to worry about any additional costs.
Where Can You Buy Tamadori?
The Tamadori Collection is only available online. The website is based out of Boston, MA, and features products from U.S. manufacturers and abroad.
If you’re looking specifically for Tamadori CBD Hemp Oil for Cats, you’ll have to purchase it online through the website. The good news is shipping is free and it takes only 3 to 5 business days. Products other than the CBD may take longer to ship.
Overall, Is Tamadori A Good Choice?
Because Tamadori only offers a single CBD product, it’s difficult to judge the brand on a large scale. We were, however, pleased with the quality of their CBD hemp oil for cats and we were satisfied with the amount of information provided on the website (along with the COAs sent directly from the company).
We were surprised to find that the oil itself was virtually flavorless and odorless. Of the CBD oils we’ve tested, we’ve found that our cats tend to prefer oils that have some kind of appealing odor. If you’re administering the oil directly into your cat’s mouth instead of in his food, however, we can see how it might be a benefit that the product doesn’t smell or taste like much.
Overall, we had no major issues with Tamadori to prevent us from giving the brand our recommendation. The price was a little higher than average for a single bottle, but the 500mg concentration is also fairly high as well. If you choose to try this product, we encourage you to follow the dosing instructions carefully.
