Hemp Seed Oil for Dogs and Cats
Dietary hemp oil is produced by pressing the seeds from industrial hemp plants, a variety of the Cannabis genus. More than half (54 to 57 percent) of hemp oil’s fatty acid composition is made up of Linoleic Acid (LA), while a far lesser amount (16 to 20 percent) is made up of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA). Hemp oil is beneficial when used to balance the fats in ruminant- based diets.
Ruminants — including cattle, deer, sheep, and goats — are grazing animals that chew and regurgitate their food multiple times, fermenting it in a specialized stomach called a rumen prior to digestion. Ruminant meat is naturally high in saturated fats and low in PUFAs. It turns out that the LA:ALA ratio of hemp oil is perfect for balancing the fats in ruminant-based diets.
Avoid adding hemp oil and other oils rich in LA, such as walnut, safflower, sunflower, soybean or corn oil, to poultry-based diets, as poultry contains naturally high levels of LA. Feeding additional LA in the form of dietary oils can throw off the diet’s omega- 6:omega-3 fatty acid ratio.
Note that dietary hemp oil is not the same as CBD, or cannabis, oil. While industrial hemp and CBD oil both come from the same cannabis species, CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the plant, not the seeds. The seeds used for dietary hemp oil, while rich in essential fatty acids, do not contain medicinal properties.
