5 Facts about Hemp Oil and your Dog

Cannabis for Dogs

Super food

Hemp oil is rich in nutrients that are beneficial for canine health; including vitamins & minerals along with the all important essential fatty acids in the perfect ratio of Omegas 6:3. Hemp oil contains many beneficial vitamins such as phosphorous, sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and more. Many of these vitamins are essential for healthy function of your dog's bodily systems!

Joint Health

The Essential Fatty Acids - commonly known as "Omegas"- in hemp oil may support joint health, help reduce and prevent inflammation, and provide relief for your furry friends at all stages of life. 

One of these Omega 6 fatty acids: Gamma Linolenic Acid (or GLA), works hard to create specific prostaglandins in your dog's body that are anti-inflammatory and help to reduce the effects of degenerative joint diseases - including arthritis. 

If that's all too sciencey for you, here's all you need to know: Hemp Oil contains wonderful properties that will support your dog's joints and may ease his creaky joints!

Antioxidants

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that benefits the immune system greatly - and is abundantly found in hemp oil! Vitamin E benefits your dog in many ways. Some of these benefits include helping to maintain skin condition, supporting healthy brain function, and keeping your dog's vision working perfectly! Antioxidants such as Vitamin E help your dog's immune system by fighting damage to cells caused by free radicals which harm the body when your dog is ill, or absorbs toxins from sources such as chemicals or pesticides.

Shiny Fur  and Coat

Healthy hair, reduced odour and a glossy, shiny coat are all signs that your pooch is receiving optimal nutrition - and Hemp Oil in the diet can greatly assist in that! Rather than giving your dog a bath every few days which can strip the hair of all its natural oils, adding hemp oil to your dog's food can ease issues such as dry and flaky skin, irritations and rashes, hair loss and more. Thanks to the Omega 6 content of Hemp Oil, your dog's skin and coat condition will blossom! Along with the Essential Fatty Acids that help keep that hair shiny and smooth, the protein content in hemp oil also promotes the growth of new and healthy hair, keeping your dog looking his or her best - and you can rest assured she's feeling the same on the inside, too!

Amino Acids

Amino Acids are commonly referred to as "the building blocks of protein." We already know that protein is a crucial component of your dog's diet - Amino Acids are the molecules that help to build different proteins. Amino Acids assist with muscle repair, building new tissue, producing new red blood cells that transport oxygen around the body, and many more hugely vital roles. Hemp oil contains all 20 known Amino Acids, including the essential Amino Acids which are those not synthesised by the dog's system. This means that they must be provided in the diet. Adding Hemp Oil to your dog's food is a perfect way of providing them with these all-important molecules!
