Hemp for dogs: what are the benefits?

Understanding the Rise of Hemp in Dog Care with Pupps

Noticed an upswing in hemp products for dogs and pondered their impact? Let's clarify: while still under research, many have found hemp to offer significant, natural benefits for dogs, without any mind-altering effects.

The Diversity of Hemp in Dog Products

Hemp's versatility extends from everyday items like lip balms to dog-friendly supplements and foods. As a cannabis family member, hemp in its raw form is recognizable by its distinctive, star-shaped serrated leaves. The derivatives of hemp – oil, seeds, and flour – are all safe and beneficial for dogs.

Hemp Seeds: Small and nut-like

These seeds can be used to create hemp oil or flour. They're low in CBD and THC, the psychoactive compounds in marijuana, making them safe for canine consumption. While raw seeds can be given to dogs, products like Pupps Calming Treats offer a measured, safer dosage.

Hemp Oil

This oil, derived from hemp seeds, can be a nutritious addition to your dog's diet. It offers a mild, nutty flavour and carries no psychoactive properties.

Hemp Flour

Made by grinding hemp seeds, hemp flour shares the nutritional benefits of the seeds and oil. It's also gluten-free, catering to dogs with specific dietary needs.

Why Choose Hemp for Your Dog?

Despite its cannabis association, hemp seed oil and flour contain minimal CBD or THC, so there's no 'high' effect. Instead, they offer a multitude of health benefits:

  • Nutrient-Rich: Packed with essential nutrients like vitamin E, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, iron, and protein.
  • Skin and Coat Health: The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp are great for a shiny coat and healthy skin.
  • Digestive Aid: Hemp seeds contain fibre that supports gut health and smooth digestion.
  • Natural Anti-Inflammatory: Hemp can provide relief for dogs with conditions like arthritis.

Hemp vs. CBD in Dog Care

It's important to distinguish between hemp and CBD. Hemp products typically have low CBD levels and come from the plant's seeds, while CBD products, derived from the plant's buds or leaves, contain higher cannabidiol levels.
