Hemp Oil for Dogs?
Hemp seed oil can be a powerful nutrient for dogs. Hemp oil is rich in Gamma-Linolenic Acid (or GLA), an important fatty acid. GLA has been shown to help reduce the symptoms of arthritis as well as reduce inflammation. GLA has also been shown to improve the skin and coat.
Hemp seed oil is also rich in Omega 3 fatty acids as well antioxidandts which are essential for your dogs health. It is safer than giving your dog fish oil to obtain omega 3s as it doesn’t have the same side effects.
Another nutrtional benefit is that hemp seed oil is rich in phospholipids. Phospholipids are essential in maintaining the cell membrane. A 2012 German study found that phospholipids lower the risk of heart disease, improved immune function and boosted brain health.
CBD oil is not the same as Hemp oil.
CBD comes from the leaves and stalks of the plants where Hemp comes from the seed. CBD tends to be more “medicinal” and Hemp is more “Nutrtional”.
So just like with human foods, Dog foods may not be supplying all of the essential nutrients for your dog to be at optimal health. Many dog owners have found giving hemp seed oil to their dogs beneficial. But remember, not all products are of the same quality
So which product do we recommend?
Canine Hemp Oil Complex™ From Standard Process.
This is a unique formulation of ingredients, combined to provide a 3-in-1 benefit for a dog’s whole body. Standard Process is a whole food supplement company with very high quality ingredients. That is why it is one of the few companies that we recommend and carry. I’m sure there are other good brands out there but just remember that they are not all the same.
