NuHemp claims their pet dog food provides holistic benefits for your pet, improves joint function and digestion, as well as improves your pet's coat. We know the benefits of hemp for humans, and now pets are joining the ranks. If you don't have dogs, no problem, NuHemp offers products for your horses and even bedding for your hampsters, gerbils and rodent friends. If you do have dogs, they are in for a treat because NuHemp has pulled out all the stops and created a variety of food and bath products from hemp that are down right gourmet. Looking for something to get your dog moving, but also reward him or her? You can do that all at the same time with the Fetch'erz Balls. The treats are made from gluten-free digestible protein, spelt, millet, kamut and of course hemp. They really just look like little circles, but the ingredients claim to improve nutrition and digestion. The 2-Chomp Munchies are little cookies with Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids and are baked in small batches and hand-cut to ensure freshness. And for those dogs that require a "special dinner" - there is the Omega Sauce, which is a blend of canola and hemp oils to promote healthy digestion and a healthy coat. The "Sauce" comes in flavors like Peanut Butter Smoothie and Sizzling Bacon to pretty much ensure that whatever food you are coating, your dog will lap it up.
But that's not all. NuHemp makes use of hemp in every way possible and offers bedding made from hemp fiber. If you're more into the hamster, gerbil, rabbit or small rodent pet variety, then hemp fiber makes excellent nesting material and is a renewable resource. Some pine and cedar materials can cause respiratory problems for your pet, but not hemp fiber. The material comes from the hemp plant stem and offers anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, in addition In addition, many of the NuHemp dog food items are for cats too, and there is a line of horse food. You can even buy hemp chapstick for the humans in your life.
Hemp is grown without pesticides, the shampoos are biodegradable and it all comes from a renewable resource. NuHemp is grown and produced in Canada. Farmers are currently unable to produce hemp in the United States but sixteen states have passed pro-hemp legislation and nine states (Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont and West Virginia) have removed barriers to its production. North Dakota now gives licenses to farmers to grow hemp.
You can find NuHemp this October 10&11 at the Green Festival in Washington, DC. Not in the DC area? Don't worry, you can find NuHemp online. :NuHemp
