Treats, treats, and more treats, it’s just a beautiful word to hear. Dogs love treats and peeps love giving treats, especially ones that are natural and good for us too. So imagine my surprize when my peep offered me a natural treat made with hemp.
Now you might be thinking that my peep has lost the plot and was going to get me high on some wacky new product for dogs.
Isn’t hemp a variety of cannabis? Have you not been warned about giving drugs to dogs?
Well you’re wrong…
because hemp has many health promoting properties nearly every dog could use!
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that’s been safely used for years and contains a very tiny amount of tetrahydrocannabinoids (THC). THC is what makes your wacky tabacy marijuana. Hemp contains 0.3% to 1.5% THC whereas marijuana contains 5% to 10% or more!
So hemp will not cause your dog to become goofy, howl at the moon … or have sudden craving for treats!
Hemp is one of the purest, most complete plants on Earth and has many uses. It’s value to humans and dogs are the nutritional and healing properties of hemp seed and its oil.
Hemp seed oil is noted for these benefits:
- Superb moisturiser, natural anti-inflammatory
- Rare source of gamma-linoleum acid ( a perfect source of Omega 6)
- Prevents and repairs hair damage
- Treats eczema and psoriasis
- Rich in anti-oxidants
Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the same plant species of ‘Cannabis Sativa’. Hemp, is non-psychoactive and contains very little THC. That is the stuff in marijuana that makes people goofy! So sorry pups this is not going to make you “high” but its going to make you feel great!
Today, hemp is used in foods and even in dog products like leads, collars and toys. But it’s the hemp seed and the oil it produces that has the benefits we need.
