Doc’s Hemp with CBD was founded by two horsewomen passionate about holistic health not only for their own health and well-being, but also for their animal companions as well.

Dr. Joyce Harman and two horses

Dr. Joyce Harman is retired from Harmany Equine Clinic, a holistic equine practice in Virginia where she treated all types of horses from backyards to Olympic caliber. She has served as past president of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association and of the Veterinary Botanical Medicine Association. As an herbalist she has worked with many plants, but the most exciting has been hemp. In the very early days of hemp legalization, she tested hemp and CBD for horses. The results confirmed her excitement about the possibilities for improving the comfort and mental well being of the horses in her practice.

Dr Harman wanted to bring pure, quality organic hemp to the horse world and had trouble finding it. So, she reached out to one of the people who participated in the initial study (Stephanie Bradley), who became her partner in the Docs Hemp business.


In 2016, Stephanie Bradley was asked to join in a hemp powder with CBD (cannabidiol) trial for horses. Stephanie immediately jumped at the chance to participate. Within one week she saw positive results in all of her four horses, especially her pony, Sparky, a 25-year old with Cushing’s syndrome (hypercortisolism) and Oscar, a 27-year old thoroughbred. Stephanie recalls that they both began to “run around like wild men!” After six months of successfully participating in the trial and gaining happy horses, she decided to join the Doc’s Hemp team to help more horses and educate their owners. As time went on, the team explored using hemp products with CBD with other animals.  Stephanie gave her dog, a 9.5 year-old lurcher, a tiny spec of hemp (about 1/16th teaspoon) to rave reviews. The team reached out and donated the product to rescue shelters for sheep, goats and chickens and received positive feedback.

 After receiving these great results, the team found that many critters enjoy Doc’s Hemp CBD Powder so they expanded their mission from enhancing the lives of horses to ALL CREATURES great and small…thus, Doc’s Hemp was born.
