Hemp Fuel Pellets: A Great Alternative for Heating
The winter season is quickly approaching and with it, the need for a reliable heat source. Wood pellet stoves are becoming popular because of the reduced cost compared to propane, electricity and heating fuel. Wood is also a renewable resource. However, the quality of wood makes a big difference. Issues like softwood, hardwood and whether or not there is bark included in the pellets can make a huge difference in the type of heat provided and the amount of ash produced.
This is where hemp fuel pellets come in. Hemp pellets produce around 2% ash and can be used in a large range of pellet burners currently on the market today. Hemp is less corrosive to burn than wood pellets, creates less ash, and always has the same high quality as what you find in premium grade wood pellets. This product comes from the shiv of the hemp stalk and has no possibility of including any additional material that can lead to a lower grade of quality.
The fiber of the hemp plant is separated from the shiv and is used for clothes, as well as many other uses. The shiv, once considered a useless stringy inner lining, is becoming as valuable a part as are the seeds and fiber in processing. Shiv is used to make hempcrete when mixed with lime, but a new processing plant in Alberta, Canada has found yet another substantial use; hemp fuel pellets make the perfect alternative to wood pellets for heating, with less trouble.
The fuel pellet market is currently dominated by premium grade wood pellets, with some niche companies also offering grass and straw pellets. However, the waste wood used for fuel pellets is a limited supply and grass and straw pellets produce more ash, plus clinker and corrosion issues, so many stoves and boilers cannot use them.
The demand for woody shiv is still in its infancy in Canada and the UK and the United States is interested in hemp harvesting and renewable energy. With the Farmer’s Almanac reporting a colder than usual winter season this year, legislators need to step up efforts in recognizing hemp as a natural alternative for energy.

Like humans, every horse is unique. Experimentation is the key to finding what works best for your horse. When trying to determine the appropriate amount of CBD for your horse, here are two tips:
When beginning CBD, it’s best to start with the smallest dose possible and gradually work up. For some horses, results are seen with one scoop while others may need up to five scoops per serving. Improvement can be seen immediately for some conditions while others may take a bit longer.
Pay Attention to Body Size
The right dose of CBD varies from person to person as well as animal to animal. Generally speaking, larger individuals get better results from a higher dose of CBD while smaller individuals may see results with a lower dose.

Comments: I’m in love with the Plantacea products. These pellets make a huge difference in tense, reactive horses, as well as those with chronic pain issues. I see a deep relaxation and mental poise, as well as an overall comfortable and peaceful attitude in my thoroughbreds since I started feeding these pellets. I tried the Collected single dose CBD pre-riding as a trial, and was so impressed with the results, I decided to spring for the pellets. Thank you Plantacea and RW for improving the quality of life for my horses (and me)!
