Benefits of the Hemp Seed
Hemp seed has many health benefits and is regularly referred to as a superfood. Its most notable benefit is the ideal ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fats that hemp seeds contain. These beneficial fats are essential to supporting a healthy brain and a balanced immune system. Omega fatty acids are even important in keeping skin and fur well-hydrated. Other benefits of an ideal ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 include:


● Complete source of plant-based protein (a tablespoon contains 9.46 g of protein)
● Phospholipids to improve the permeability of cell walls (essential in allowing nutrients in, and waste out of cells)
● Contains 2% GLA for additional anti-inflammatory support and moisturizing skin
● Vitamins and minerals in the most easily absorbed forms

 

Hemp seeds have a completely different application than broad-spectrum hemp oil with CBD. They are more about the nutritional content for supporting healthy brain and heart function. Hemp seed oil has more benefit to skin health as well, the essential fatty acid ratio is perfect for dry, itchy skin and a dull coat.


Benefits of the Hemp Leaf
Hemp leaf is used for its concentration of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Cannabidiol, or CBD is one of many cannabinoids from the cannabis plant that are not intoxicating but that have therapeutic applications. CBD has been clinically shown to have benefits for reducing nausea, reducing inflammation, and fighting tumours and certain types of cancer cells. CBD products work best on a longer-term basis as it can take several weeks for
cannabinoids to build up to therapeutic levels.

 

But both are important for optimal health
Hemp seed and hemp leaf are completely different approaches to managing animal health. While CBD products are great as a natural pain-killer and anti-inflammatory, hemp seeds have benefits that go deeper into the body and help with nutritional deficiencies that can arise from both kibble and raw feeding. Hemp seeds provide vital nutrients and essential fatty acids that are necessary for the proper function of the brain, the heart and the cells of the body.

Oregano and Cats - Misconceptions Arounds Cats and Essential Oils
There is lots of misinformation and confusion surrounding cats and essential oils. It is a general understanding that cats don’t tolerate essential oils because of their naturally-occurring chemical compounds called phenols. Since cats are obligate carnivores, meaning that they require meat in their diets to survive, it is understood that they lack the liver enzymes necessary to break down these plant chemicals.
