At VitaCat, we’re passionate about creating cat chews that can support your cat’s health. One of our most popular products, our Calming Aid, is designed to help your cat relax in times of stress thanks to ingredients like organic hemp protein powder, chamomile, and passion flower.
We know some people might be confused about using hemp protein powder in cat chews, so today we’re shedding some light on the common misconceptions about hemp and the ways it can be used to support your cat’s health.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP PROTEIN AND CBD?
Hemp protein powder and CBD come from two different parts of the cannabis plant: hemp protein comes from the plant’s seeds, which are pressed to remove oils and ground up into a fine powder. On the other hand, CBD is harvested from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant.
DOES HEMP PROTEIN HAVE THC IN IT?
Nope! Hemp protein powder does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. This is because hemp is a specific type of cannabis plant different from cannabis plants high in THC. Industrial hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC, meaning any derivations from hemp in your pet’s chews won’t get them high.
HOW DOES HEMP PROTEIN POWDER SUPPORT MY CAT’S HEALTH?
Hemp protein powder is high in antioxidants and provides a balanced omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. It can support your cat’s brain, eyes, nervous system, skin, coat, hip, and joint health. Hemp and hemp protein powder can also help regulate your cat’s mood and support a calmer disposition.
