Hempdrops Ingredient List
Hydrocarbon Hemp extract, Hempseed oil, MCT Oil (Medium-Chain-Triglycerides), Added Vitamin A & E.
Hemp Drops contains Australian-grown Hemp, a Full-Spectrum extract. Full-Spectrum or Whole-Plant Hemp extract results in the product containing all the phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that are naturally occurring in the hemp plant.
Each 50ml bottle contains 1000mg of full-spectrum hemp extracted via hydrocarbon method. Certificate of Analysis is available via request. All batches are tested by independent third parties for potency, purity and safety. THC levels are under 0.15% and have been tested with non-detectable levels by Western Sydney University. While THC has been tested as ND by UWS, being a full spectrum product means that any trace elements of all naturally occurring phytocannabinoids will be present in the whole plant extract, even if not detected by standardised tests. There are numerous studies that indicate full spectrum extracts as being more beneficial and bioavailable than isolate (cbd only) products.
Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil 1000mg
Hempseed oil contains perfect ratios of Omega 6 (linoleic acids) to Omega 3 (alpha-linoleic acid) fatty acids. These are essential fatty acids that your dog is unable to produce, meaning they NEED to get it from their diet.
- Hempseeds are also high in the Omega 6 Fatty Acid called Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA)
- Researchers in the “Journal of Arthritis and Rhuematology” stated that in a trial they found that GLA from Hempseeds reduced arthritis symptoms by 25% compared to placebo 4%.
- Reducing Skin Allergies: GLA is an important nutrient to help manage atopic dermatitis. In humans, a 2005 study showed GLA significantly improved clinical symptoms of atopic dermatitis while also helping to keep moisture in the skin, leading to suppler skin and a smoother coat.
- Weight Management: GLA helps turn on the body’s fat burning mechanism and can rev up your dog’s energy levels. It may also increase serotonin, a brain chemical that contributes to the feeling of fullness.
- Anti-Cancer: A 2006 study reported that GLA-rich diets modulate inflammation and boost immune function. GLA can inhibit the growth of certain types of tumours and also stimulates apoptosis (cancer cell death). It can reduce side effects of conventional cancer drugs and in combination the anti-inflammatory properties of GLA may also help prevent cancer by reducing chronic inflammation in the body. Prolonged inflammation weakens cells and tissues, diminishing the immune system.
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids: also benefit eyes, brain, skin, heart, bones and joints.
Hormone-like structures that permeate through the body that help to:
- Smooth Muscle Contractions
- Control inflammation
- Regulate with body temp
- Help other vitals
The GLA that’s abundant in Hempseeds is a building block for Prostaglandins. GLA deficiencies can lead to allergies, arthritis, premature ageing, digestive issues, diabetes, cancer as well as skin problems
Medium-chain fatty acids are considered a good choice for use with hemp extracts because their shorter structure allows them to be absorbed immediately through the digestive tract rather than having to be first broken down into smaller pieces — which would mean a much slower absorption rate. MCT oil is generally safe for most dogs. Rarely dogs can have an allergic reaction to MCT oil, so should be closely monitored the first time it is administered. This is the most common carrier oil for hemp products and is used across the industry as the standard.
Dr. Colleen Smith, of the Chattanooga Holistic Animal Institute says that MCT oil can, “increase energy levels, improve skin and coat, improve digestion, and reduce allergic reactions.”
Dr. Katie Gryzb, a Brooklyn-based veterinarian, explains that MCT oil can potentially slow cognitive dysfunction in dogs. “Fatty acids are helpful in cognitive function, which has been medically proven,” she says.
Dr. Pema Melu, DVM, of Holistic Veterinary Healing in Germantown, MD, explains that MCT oil can help with physical and digestive ailments because they are “directly absorbed in the GI tract and go directly to the liver where they are metabolised into utilizable energy.”
Vitamins A & E
Both Vitamins A & E are already present in Hemp both acting as powerful antioxidants and most vegetable oils in the form of Tocopherols.
Most plant-based oils contain a mix of Tocopherols between 0.5% and 0.1%, but because of the refining processes, the oils lose most of the natural tocopherols present. Due to this, sometimes it is necessary to add Tocopherols at the end of the refining process to ensure that the oils have a good stability and to prevent their oxidation.
Tocopherols are a powerful natural antioxidant widely used in the food industry, as well as in cosmetics or animal nutrition, due to its great ability to prevent against oxidative rancidity, extending the shelf life of food products.
