What is hemp-based food for dogs?

At Whooch, our products are all-naturalsingle-source protein packs that aim to assist your Pooch with food sensitivities and other indicators that affect their daily lives. If you’re wondering how it all works, CBD (Cannabidiol) oil and hemp both come from the same plant which is part of the Cannabis Sativa family. CBD is derived from the green stalk, leaves and bud and can be used to treat health conditions and, in the absence of them, improve general health. Hemp, on the other hand, comes from the seeds and is a highly nutritional collection of compounds. Hemp actually contains less than 1% of THC which means that your dog is safe from fears about them getting high. This comes with many benefits and they include all of the following and more…

Benefits of hemp for dogs

1. Immune system boost

Hemp products have health properties that are backed by the perfect balance of essential fatty acids. The omega-3  and -6 fatty acids are the key compounds in hemp that help humans and dogs regulate the inflammatory response and so much more. Dogsdon’t naturally produce these fatty acids and they could greatly benefit from the introduction of them. The enhanced inflammatory response helps to better respond to injuries, infections, allergies, and other ailments. Hemp-based products can, therefore, help with the dog’s inflammatory response pathways, support reducedjoint discomfort, and help keep your dog active.

2. Healthier skin and shinier coats

The fatty acids we’ve touched on already (omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids) are also helpful to improve the skin and coat quality of your pup. Hemp is already a popular ingredient for the mainstream cosmetic products we use as human consumers. You can understand why they can offer the same benefits for your pups. Hemp is directly related to improved coat quality, or even as a response to common skin problems like those related to insect bites or otherwise. Other benefits are continued below…
