Hemp Treats For Pets
First thing first, hemp is not a drug! It will, therefore, not have any mind-altering effects on your dog or cat. When ingesting it as a dietary supplement, there’s only an upside for your pet – hemp is genuinely a rare superfood for your dog or cat.
Pets can experience the benefits of hemp, just like us. So, when it comes to taking care of their physical and mental well-being, it’s no wonder so many pet owners are turning to hemp treats as the newest addition to their pet’s wellness regime.
Take look at some over our popular items below.
What is hemp?
Hemp is a very ancient plant that people have been cultivating for many centuries. It is a plant with a number of both nutritional and environmental benefits.
The fibre inside hemp is a renowned material that is regularly used in plastics processing nutrition (hemp oil), textiles, papermaking, fireworks, painting, and many other areas. The uses of hemp are many and varied and make the plant a very sought-after material worldwide.
How does hemp help protect your dog / Cat?
Due to its many benefits, Hemp has been steadily gaining the attention of scientists around the world, is truly one of your dog’s best health friends. But what are the effects of hemp on your cat or dog’s health?
- Reducing joint pain
” For animals with arthritis, hip dysplasia, or painful joints, we have noticed that using hemp helps to relieve pain, and it makes them mobile again.” – Dr Silver
Researchers from the “Journal of Arthritis and Rheumatology” have found that the fatty acids found in hemp seeds enable a reduction in the symptoms of arthritis of up to 25%. As we’ve said before, the perfect combination of the two fatty acids in hemp oil allows swelling to be reduced naturally.
- Better skin protection and a more radiant coat!
Extolled for its efficiency in cosmetics and soaps, hemp oil can penetrate the lower layers of your dog’s skin and thus promotes healthier cellular growth. Once again, the perfect balance of fatty acids contributes significantly to reducing the swelling associated with common skin problems such as atopic dermatitis, itchy skin disease, and granuloma.
- Hemp versus cancer
A recent American study showed that people with cancer, diabetes, or skin allergies do not produce enough GLA (gamma-linoleic acid), and the same observation holds for our four-legged friends. Even though GLA is produced naturally by dogs, it is possible that they may not make enough GLA in high-stress or intense exercise situations. This is where True Leaf nutritional supplement products come in, with their ability to provide dogs with the GLAs they need.
The “British Journal of Cancer” was able to prove that the THC found inside hemp seeds can arrest the advance of brain cancer and even improve patients’ health during breast cancer (Breast Cancer Research and Treatment). Ultimately, thanks to its THC content and balance of fatty acids, hemp seed oil reduces the pain your dog may suffer that is associated with many inflammations and also helps to boost your dog’s immune system!
