True Leaf’s pet product line contains hemp as one of the primary ingredients. Providing the health benefits of hemp is what sets True Leaf apart from the competition. Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the same plant species of ‘Cannabis Sativa’. Marijuana plants contain high levels of THC. Hemp, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and contains very little THC (less than .3% by law), but certain cultivars contain cannabidiol (CBD) located primarily in the hemp leaf and the hemp flower. True Leaf uses whole hemp seed and cold-pressed hemp seed oil in the True Hemp™ product line, which does not contain detectable levels of CBD.
Hemp seed oil - a major component of hemp seed itself and of True Leaf Pet’s product line – has a variety of beneficial properties and is showing great promise on its own as a supplement. Because hemp oil is extracted from the industrial hemp plant, it contains no psychoactive reactors. Hemp contains known antioxidants from tocopherols and hosts a variety of other beneficial properties including anti-inflammatory compounds from terpenes, plant sterols, and methyl salicylate - a relative of acetylsalicylic acid or ‘aspirin’. Hemp oil helps to support the moisture level in a dog’s skin and furFurther, hemp seed oil supports the body's ability to enhance blood circulation, stimulatecognitive thinking and can help improve fur texture and lessen shedding.
Hemp is also legally refined in industrial factories for textile and nutritional use: it is often consumed and mixed into other products including cerealand granola bars. Hemp for dogs are increasing in popularity because of its significant potential health benefits that may include joint support, skin and coat nourishment and antioxidant support.
