Hemp Oil for Pets: 13 Unexpected Health Benefits

Hemp Oil for Pets: 13 Unexpected Health Benefits

We have recently started providing Hemp Oil for Pets at Downtown Pet Supply. While it has already been a popular product, we want to detail the reasons we think it's a staple for any pet parent, especially those whose fur-child has a variety of health concerns.

First, to dispel a common myth: Hemp Oil is not psychoactive. It is completely THC free and without any of the intoxicating aspects of traditional cannabis. And while most supplements are developed to treat a narrow range of health concerns, Hemp Oil for pets contains underlying health benefits that are both numerous and varied...

1.) Effectively Treats Anxiety

Many dogs suffer from anxiety. Whether it is caused by thunderstorms, fireworks, a haircut, or the dreaded trip to the vet, anxiety is a constant problem for pet parents. Before Hemp Oil for Pets, the only way to treat this ailment was to get a prescription from a vet. No more! Hemp Oil is a simple, all-natural solution to pet’s anxiety. Containing Omega-3 and Omega-9 fatty acids, Hemp Oil has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety in humans, dogs, and cats alike.

2.) Reduces Inflammation

In multiple studies, Hemp Oil has been shown to also reduce inflammation. All mammals experience inflammation, as the immune system fights real (or perceived) threats. Often inflammation exacerbates the underlying problem, as inflammatory cytokines are released for a variety of reasons. Especially in older dogs, this inflammation can become chronic, hurting joints and mobility. Hemp Oil has been shown to naturally realign inflammatory agents, so that your dog’s immune system remains strong but their joints are no longer swollen and painful.

3.) Treats all kinds of Pain

Along with reducing inflammation, Hemp Oil for Pets is a great alternative to pain pills. It targets the sensation of pain, which makes it great at treating all different kinds of ailments. Whether your dog is experiencing painful joints, surgery scars, or hard stool, Hemp Oil for pets can target it all.

4.) Proven Treatment for Seizures

One of the must illustrative ways Hemp has been shown to have medical benefits is its ability to help reduce and stop seizures. One study showed that 84% of children saw a reduction of their seizures when taking hemp oil. Humans are not alone in suffering from epilepsy, some estimate up to 5% of pets suffer from seizures. Other epilepsy treatments require a prescription from the vet. Often they are powerful and damaging to organs over time, but Hemp Oil is effective, gentle, and all natural.

5.) Addresses Feelings of Nausea 

The most well-known effect of Hemp Oil has to do with appetite. As dogs age, they need less and less food. This can result in older canines having trouble with malnourishment. Hemp Oil for pets not only increases appetite, it's an effective treatment for nausea. Whether you have a young pup on medication experiencing vomiting as a side effect, or you are worried about your furry friend maintaining their weight: Hemp Oil for pets is here to help.


6.) Protect Nervous System

Since canine life spans are so much shorter than our own, it is easier to identify when our furry friends start to age, and their bodies begin to break down. If you have ever noticed slight personality shifts as your pet ages, this can be attributed to cell atrophy. The nervous system is often the most affected by cell death. Hemp Oil is a powerful antioxidant that can prevent free radicals and toxins from accelerating this decline.

7.) Supports Digestive Health

Digestive tract problems are often a concern for pet parents, particularly dog owners. Hemp includes chlorophyll which helps dogs balance their digestion and treat stomach aches. While common stomach problems can be treated with Hemp Oil for Pets, it can also PREVENT certain digestive diseases like Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). It doesn’t matter if your furry friend is distressed after eating something they shouldn’t have, or if there is a more long term problem. Hemp Oil for pets is here to help.

8.) Improves Cardiovascular Health

In addition to doing wonders for digestive and nervous system, Hemp Oil is also shown to help improve cardiovascular health. In both humans and pets, it has been shown to lower blood pressure as well as slow rapid heart rates. Heart problems often occur in older dogs, and are difficult to treat once developed. Hemp Oil for pets is a proactive solution that can help reduce risk factors down the road. 

9.) Reduces Skin Allergies

Many pets experience some form of skin allergies, whether seasonal or year-round. In 2005, a study found that hempseed oil “improved symptoms of atopic dermatitis”. This is due to one of the components of Hemp Oil, Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is an essential omega-6 fat. Even healthy dogs are known to be deficient in it, which causes a range of health problems including skin allergies.


10.) Repairs Liver Damage

Slowing cell death is an important benefit of Hemp Oil for pets, but components such as Phospholipids and Omega fatty acids can also begin to heal past organ damage, specifically liver damage. A 2012 study found a correlation between Phospholipid consumption and repaired liver damage.

11.) Boosts Immune System

In addition to repairing organ damage, Phospholipids have a variety of proven health benefits. They help to maintain cell integrity by protecting the internal structure and environment of cells. This helps the immune system be more effective at fighting off illnesses, large and small.

12.) Can Inhibit Tumor Growth

Cancer is a persistent concern for any aging pet, and Hemp Oil contains ingredients that can help! Omega-3 and Omega-6 are known to help reduce cancer causing inflammation, and Phospholipids and GLA have been shown to inhibit tumor growth. While Hemp Oil for pets isn’t a completely effective treatment for veterinary cancer, it can significantly help to reduce your furry friend’s risk and slow the cancer’s growth.

13.) Improves Energy Levels 

Gamma-Linolenic Acid deficiency can cause a range of health problems. But using Hemp Oil to increase your pet’s consumption of GLA has hidden benefits beyond the ailments it treats. One of the more surprising is improved energy levels, especially in older dogs. GLA can boost the metabolism of your pets, and may even increase serotonin levels. Get ready for healthier, happier pets!
