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.
