Bamboo and Hemp have been in the canine news a lot lately and with good reason.
Hemp oil is touted for it’s nutritional value in supplements packing a high amount of linoleum acids, an omega-6 fatty acid essential for skin health to maintain a protective barrier between the outside and inside of the body.
As an oil, hemp actually has a superior ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, with the Omega 3 component being in a higher, correct ratio to the Omega 6 fatty acids. This actually makes hemp oil preferable and superior than flax seed oil, which has been long been the gold standard as an excellent source of Omega 3.
Hemp is also able to be made into a strong durable fiber. Since hemp has natural antifungal and antibacterial properties it is ideal for dog collars . Hemp is a fiber that breathes and hemp is grown without the use of pesticides it is especially good for sensitive skin.
Hemp is a sustainable crop; it grows well with out the aid of herbicides, fungicides or pesticides. Hemp can replace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation, oxygen production and carbon sequestration-reducing global warming.
For the most part, hemp is grown without pesticides because it is a much hardier plant which makes it less vulnerable to insects, pests, drought, mildew, and other poor growing conditions.
