Pets love True Leaf treats. They're grain-free, delicious, and come with additional benefits. For Hip + Joint products we recommend doubling the dose for the first 10 days, this allows for the nutrients to build up inside the joint. For the Calming product only increase the dose for occasional times of increased stress.
|About the hemp plant|
|Industrial hemp, sometimes simply called hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant species. It is an extremely useful plant, originally cultivated for its fibre and seeds. Hemp seeds are often consumed as a superfood as they are high in protein, healthy fats, and essential minerals and vitamins. Recently, hemp has gained interest for its cannabinoid content, particularly CBD, or Cannabidiol. The FDA states that cannabis is considered hemp when it contains no more than 0.3 percent THC by dry weight.
Note: Hemp is not Cannabis
What are the benefits of hemp seed for dogs?
The nutritional value of hemp seeds is impressive. They contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to sustain a healthy life. Essential fatty acids act as lipids in the walls of all the body’s cells, allowing nutrients to pass into the cell easily, and toxins to be pushed out just as easily. Hemp seeds are also especially high in minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur).
