Hemp is not the same as marijuana. Hemp, unlike marijuana, contains a almost no amount of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the compound that gets you ‘high’. Marijuana does contain THC (0.3% or less). The sale of hemp seed foods was prohibited in Australia until November 2017, when amendments to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards legally permitted their retail sale.


Hempseed oil is typically cold pressed and uses temperatures below 38ºC and does not need to be chemically extracted or refined, making hemp a more stable, and therefore a healthier, option.

Hemp seed oil provides not only Omega 3 and Omega 6, but also Omega 9. In addition to this, hemp also contains GLA: gamma linolenic acid. GLA is an omega-6 but unlike other omega 6, GLA ‘produces anti-inflammatory prostaglandins in the body’ ie. hemp seeds are highly anti-inflammatory.

It’s highly palatable for animals and can be a cost effective.

Naturally occurring cannabinoids plus hemp’s high nutrient content


For at least the last 12,000 years hemp has been grown and processed for it’s fibres and food products.
There are over 7000 different products that can be made from hemp.
Hemp seeds have a rich nutrition profile including protein, unsaturated fats, fibre, minerals and vitamins (vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, zinc, B6, among others)
Hemp has one of the lowest levels of unsaturated fats and highest level of polyunsaturated fats, compared to other vegetable oils
Hemp seeds are very high in protein; around 35%, and contain all of the required amino acids
Hemp seed oil provides not only omega-3 and omega-6, but also omega-9 in the most efficient form of any plant oil


Use once daily. Small animals (under 10kg) = 1/4 dropper. Medium animals (10-25kg) = 1/2 dropper. Large animals (25kg+) = 1 dropper.
Add it directly to food but if your pet is anything like our dog, they’ll lick it right off the spoon! You’ll soon start to notice a positively glowing coat and any pain or skin conditions will begin to heal. Many of our customers also report a rapid elevation in their pets’ moods, the result being less anxious animals. Hemp Seed Oil For Pets is great for external use. It alleviates dry skin, improves fur & coat, strengthens nails, is great for a sore cracked nose or paws, and helps relieve joint pain.

Always consider the source and quality of the oil as rancidity can be a problem, as with any seeds, due to the oils.
