We have been sourcing our hemp from Canadian farmers for more than 20 years and we will continue to partner with them for our line of hemp food products.
When it comes to our bodies we need a mix or balance of essential fatty acids (EFAs). It is best to consume foods that have naturally balanced omegas. Hemp has an Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio of 3:1. Plus, the omegas in hemp are unrefined and easily digestible.
For more information about “good” and “bad” Omega 6s or the balance of omegas, contact your health care professional.
Just like with humans, be conscious of your pet’s weight when determining how much hemp oil to add to your pet’s food. A good parameter for oil – 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight
Absolutely! Just remember to consider body weight when determining serving size – much like you would with any other food. As a general guideline cut the recommended serving size shown on each package by 1/3 or 1/2 depending on the child’s age and size.

Hemp foods contain less than 0.001% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will NOT cause a psychoactive effect.
Hemp hearts are hulled hemp seeds. They are the soft, chewy center inside the shell of the hemp seed. Think of the tasty, soft inside of a sunflower seed that you eat. Hemp hearts have a subtle nutty flavor and can be consumed raw. You can also cook with them, making them a great pantry staple. Hemp hearts are versatile and fun to experiment with – add them to smoothies, desserts, and more!
