If you are wondering if Hemp Seed Oil is suitable for cats then the answer is YES! Hemp seed oil is an excellent nutritional supplement for cats. 

Hemp Seed oil has high nutrient content and is especially rich in essential fatty acids.

The essential fatty acids help with various health issues and are especially known to help with joint, heart and kidney disease. Essential fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect, normalise heart rhythm and are found to beneficial for kidney function.

Studies also suggest that essential fatty acids have a positive effect on the brain which explains the positive effect on mood and reduced anxiety levels. Gamma linolenic acid, a fatty acid found in hemp Seed Oil has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Additionally, hemp seed oil has small quantities of cannabinoids which have an positive effect on the body. Body cells of our pets have cannabinoid receptors, also called endocannabinoid system (ECS), that are stimulated by cannabinoids which can have an overall health enhancing effect.

Hemp seed oil must not be confused with CBD oil. As the name already says, Hemp Seed Oil is made from hemp seeds. The oil is low in cannabinoids and but rich in nutrients especially fatty acids. CBD oil is made from the hemp plant and contains larger quantities of Cannabinoids. CBD stands for cannabidiol which is a specific a cannabinoid. CBD oil is used for medicinal purposes and was long illegal in Australia.

Hemp Seed Oil also contains minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, Iron and zinc, is high in vitamins and antioxidants like VitaminE and Chlorophyll.

Perfectly safe yet having small amounts of cannabinoids to stimulate the endocannabinoid system plus the benefits of the of omega 3,6 and 9 Essential Fatty acids and other desirable nutrients makes Hemp Seed Oil a superior supplement for your cat.
