PCR Hemp Oil
Industrial hemp oil is naturally an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The hemp oil in our products is extracted from industrial hemp, which by law contains <0.3% of the psychoactive substances (THC) found in other plants in the the Cannabis family.
Hemp oil may help support joint function, flexibility and mobility. It may also reduce the negative effects of stress and help animals cope with situational stress such as fire works, crowds, separation, travel, motion sickness and tension.
Not all hemp oils are the same so be sure to do your own research. The PCR (phytocannabinoid-rich) hemp oil in Healthy Hemp Pet products comes from a Colorado-based company that grows industrial hemp using organic methods in a Colorado Department of Agriculture certified program. Our supplier extracts the oil from the plants they grow themselves using Vapor Distillation as the extraction method. It’s the first naturally-extracted hemp oil, on the market, that is completely free of chlorophylls and carbonic acid. You can learn more about Vapor Distillation here.
When it comes to holistic pet care, medicinal mushrooms have remarkable health benefits. People have been interested in the medicinal powers of mushrooms and have used them effectively for thousands of years.

The most common use of medicinal mushrooms you’ve likely heard of recently is in the treatment and prevention of cancer. Research and results both suggest that whole-mushroom extracts contain compounds that lessen carcinogenesis and tumorigenesis at different stages.
In addition, medicinal mushrooms have been claimed to boost heart health, fight viruses, reduce inflammation, fight allergies, improve digestion, balance blood sugar levels, and support the body’s detoxification mechanisms. Adding organic mushrooms to a pet’s diet can boost your pet’s immune system, which is helpful if your pet suffers from cancer, infections, or other immunity related ailments. Mushrooms may also increase every day wellness in pets. You can read our educational paper on Understanding Medicinal Mushrooms here for additional information on medicinal mushrooms.
