Hemp Seed Oil
Our Cold Pressed Hemp Oil is made from 100% Australian hemp seeds and is truly a modern-day superfood for dogs. Hemp oil is a plant-based source of omega 3, and contains the perfect 1:3 ratio of anti-inflammatory omega 3 and heart-healthy omega 6.
Hemp Oil is different from Cannabis oil, in that Cannabis oil is manufactured from the flower buds and leaves of the same plant and contains Cannabinoids. These Cannabinoids are diluted with a carrier oil (usually the hemp seed oil), like the way that essential oils are diluted before use, to achieve a level of useable strength oil.
CBD may have a more overall medical benefit than hemp seed oil, however, whilst it is legal in USA and Europe in strictly controlled dilutions, CBD still remains illegal in Australia unless obtained under prescription.
How is Hemp Oil even good for my dog?
Hemp Oil contains all ten essential amino acids required by dogs for optimum health and is an excellent source of vitamin E. Essential Amino Acids cannot be produced in the body and must be provided through food.
Because of Hemp’s high levels of beneficial fatty acids, dogs can see relief from skin conditions, inflammation and digestive complaints, while boosting the overall health of their immune system.
Laila and Me Hemp Oil is cold-pressed, meaning all the beneficial nutrients are retained and not lost due to heat treatment. We source our Hemp Seeds in Australia and they are sustainably grown.
Will my dog get lit?
Hemp seed oil contains little to no THC and the amounts that may be found, are trace amounts. It’s the THC contained in a cannabis plant that gives you the “stoned” feeling. Your dog would have to have quite a lot of pure concentrated CBD oil which contains THC, before they displayed symptoms of being stoned, but what is available now in Australia is Hemp Seed Oil, which has such tiny amounts of THC, it is virtually undetectable. So the short answer is no, your dog won’t be high – just happy and healthy!
It might be worth mentioning here that you can get CBD oil with the THC extracted, so when CBD oil does become legal in Australia, your dog still wont is getting high off it, because it won’t contain THC in any measurable amount.
Currently, in Australia, CBD oil is only available with a prescription from some vets.
Hang on; I’m confused what is the difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil?
Hemp seed oil is by cold pressing ripened hemp seeds. It contains little to no traces of Cannabidol and THC, and has nutritional benefits derived because of its high traces of essential amino acids and essential fatty acids. These nutrients can’t be stored in the body and are known to have benefit to aiding skin and digestion issues, immunity and low-level anxiety. It won’t get your dog “high” and has no known adverse reactions so far.
CBD oil works by the cannabinoids present positively interacting with the dogs own natural endocannabinoid system. While this isn’t a “cure-all” it can help by restoring the dogs endocannabinoid system back to its working order, which may explain why CBD oil is great at treating issues like anxiety, seizures, symptoms of cancer, GI issues and inflammation.
