CBD & Horses
So, how does it all work? Hemp and cannabis both contain chemical compounds called cannabinoids. Horses (like people) have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The receptor system interacts with cannabinoids (such as CBD cannabidiol) to maintain an overall homeostasis within the body. As you may imagine, it is imperative that the system works efficiently.
When a cannabinoid such as CBD is introduced, it helps to support the overall function of the Endocannabinoid System. It is comparable to the way that vitamin C supports the immune system. CBD oil also proves to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can relieve stress on the body. As you can see, more and more people are turning to CBD oil instead of harsh, conventional medications whenever possible.
How Will My Horse Benefit From CBD oil?
All horses, regardless of breed, will benefit from CBD Oil. If you’ve been around horses very long, you’ve likely seen suffering from chronic laminitis, anxiety, muscle soreness, stall rest, trailering anxiety, herd bound issues, or more. One of the great benefits to using CBD oil is that you don’t have to continually use it to see benefits from it.
Say your horse has anxiety about being trailered. You’ve desensitized him, used positive training methods, and still he keeps pawing at the floor or kicking out causing the trailer to rock because he doesn’t want to be separated from you. CBD oil is an amazing addition to your toolbox. Administer the dose 30 minutes to an hour beforehand and see what a difference it makes.
Alternatively you may have a horse on stall rest. You’ve made some pretty creative toys for your horse to play with but after 4 weeks they are just feeling cooped up and wanting out. Use CBD oil to help keep them calm until you can hand walk or turnout again. Further, you can use CBD oil to calm your horse prior to hand walking so he doesn’t make it a challenge!
CBD oil does not change your horse’s personality. But it does help to bring your animal back to balance within their own bodies. Naturally, with no harsh chemicals or additives.
Here are some of the amazing benefits you can see when using CBD oil with your horse:
- Reduce Pain
- Improve Digestion and Appetite
- Calm Anxiety
- Reduce Inflammation
- Separation Anxiety/ Generalized Anxiety
Is CBD oil Safe For My Horse?
Yes. Clinical studies prove that CBD oil is safe for horses and can deliver incredible results. If your horse is suffering from any of the aforementioned health concerns, CBD oil can help. Furthermore, if you are actively seeking ways to prevent diseases from developing, we highly recommend implementing CBD oil into your horse’s life.
