Hemp products like all-natural hemp litter and bedding from Phyto Animal Health are the safer and more environmentally conscientious choice for both livestock and pets. Created with minimally-processed, skillfully grown hemp, Phyto Animal Health pet products bring the healthy advantages of hemp to your pets and livestock every day.

What is Hemp?

Hemp is a member of the cannabis species of plant. Because it is non-psychoactive, hemp has made a name for itself as an accessible, environmentally-friendly alternative to many goods.

Hemp is harvested commercially for its seeds and stalks, which are used to produce a number of products – including food, nutritional supplements, medicine, body care products, paper, textiles, building materials, plastic composites, biofuels, and even pet products – making it an important renewable commercial commodity.

Because it thrives under natural conditions, hemp is typically grown outside, with both male and female plants sown closely together to encourage wind pollination and increase seed production. The hemp plant grows sturdy and tall, up to 2 to 4 meters in height, without the need for herbicides or pesticides. For cannabis to be considered hemp in the U.S., it must contain no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per dry weight. THC is the active compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effect.

Approximately 30 countries currently grow hemp across Europe, Asia, and North and South America, including Germany, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Canada, Chile, Japan, and South Korea, to name just a few.

In the U.S., hemp products must be created using imported hemp. Phyto Animal Health’s hemp comes from cultivators in Northern Europe who bring generations of experience growing hemp.

Phyto Animal Health Hemp Products

Phyto Animal Health takes advantage of the benefits of the hemp plant across its line of products, including an all-natural hemp animal bedding and litter.

Twice as absorbent as straw or wood shavings, Phyto Animal Health Hemp Bedding and Litter can be changed less often. This helps reduce overall waste and cuts the total labor effort and cost on farms and in homes, saving you time and money. Because it is more absorbent, hemp bedding and litter also requires less storage space to hold each compressed 33 lb bag.

Our hemp bedding and litter is grown and processed chemical-free and produces less dust than similar animal products made from less renewable sources like wood, helping protect the respiratory health of your animals.

This all-natural animal bedding and litter is perfect for animals of all sizes, from your pets at home to larger livestock, and is the smart choice for protecting your animals’ health.

Our company also provides CBD hemp oil products designed specifically for animals:

Vitality-X

Similar to Pet Vitality™, THC-free Vitality-X™ combines CBD oil with MCT oil to create a daily use CBD supplement. Vitality-X™ is put through an extra filtration process to remove plant materials, waxes, and all but the smallest amounts of cannabinoids other than CBD, perfect for use by cat, dog, and horse owners looking to avoid concerns over THC.

What are the Advantages of Hemp?

Hemp offers a number of benefits for pets and livestock, their owners, and the environment. It is for this reason that Phyto Animal Health has dedicated its business to working with – and producing products from – hemp.

Hemp is a highly sustainable crop that, when grown without the use of harsh chemicals, can replace many commercial items with a minimal impact on the environment. This also allows us to produce safe, reliable goods, like our hemp litter and bedding, that protect the health of your animals.

Hemp plants are naturally resistant to most pests, meaning they can be grown without the use of pesticides. Because hemp is an efficient bioaccumulator, it is important to avoid using chemical pesticides that can cause residual contamination of products. Toxic pesticides sprayed on hemp plants can also leach into nearby soil and water sources, negatively impacting local biological environments.

Known for growing very tall and in close rows, hemp plants limit the ability of weeds to establish themselves among hemp fields. Like with pesticides, our growers avoid using herbicides because they can affect local biological communities or be absorbed by hemp plants and transferred residually to commercial products.

Hemp can be manufactured into a number of different products, and because it is more sustainable than other sources of fiber, oil, and fuel, hemp is a smart choice to help protect your animals, as well as our planet.
