You might have seen the word “hemp” stamped on the label of almost everything from chapstick to coffee. But if you thought it is just for you then, you might want to think again. You can now get Hemp Oil for Pets so that your furry baby can also reap its benefits. But is this all a marketing strategy that’s clearly working on us or does hemp oil really is a magic potion for your pet? It is time to find out.
What is Hemp Oil?
Hemp is a plant which falls under the species of Cannabis Sativa much like marijuana. However, contrary to popular beliefs, they are not the same. Marijuana is a reserve of the psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which gives people the characteristic “high” when they smoke it. A quality strain of the drug can contain above 20% of this mind-altering compound. However, industrial hemp oil can be sold legally only if there is less than 0.3% of THC present in it.
Speaking of hemp oil, it is nutrient-dense oil extracted from the stalk, leaves, and buds of the industrial hemp plant. The oil is rich in a compound called cannabinoid, commonly referred to as CBD. And, this is exactly what makes this oil a holy grail for pets.
How does it work?
Dogs, much like us, have the ability to synthesize a certain variety of cannabinoids within their body naturally. When we introduce the CBD in a supplement form into their diet through tinctures or yummy snacks laced with the compound, it enhances the capacity of the body to absorb its own cannabinoids more effectively.

How CBD Oil for Anxiety calms your pet?
Your canine is blessed with cannabinoid receptors all over their body. These receptors are responsible for maintaining your dog’s mood, their perception of pain, their appetite, and their memory.
When CBD is circulating in the bloodstream, they activate receptors that are not the CB receptors. This causes your dog’s mood, pain sensation, and appetite to change from drab to fab.
Studies have shown that hemp oil with a high concentration of CBD is extremely effective in inhibiting the growth of microbial families on your dog. You can apply it topically on cuts and abrasion or give it to them internally.
The high concentration of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids – Omega 3. Omega 6 and Omega 9 are great to keep the skin of your pet super healthy and maintain a shiny and soft coat.
One problem that a lot of these fur balls face is the inflammation in their joints, causing arthritis. The Journal of Arthritis and Rheumatism published a study showing that GLA in hemp seeds reduced arthritis symptoms by 25%.
Free radicals are manufactured within the body when your dog absorbs toxins from vaccines, drugs, chemicals, pesticides, processed foods and pollution. Hemp oil is a storehouse of vitamin E and vitamin A (carotene). These are antioxidants that help the immune system by fighting free radical damage.
