CBD for your Horse? Yay or Neigh?

It could work wonders

It’s no secret that the Cannabidiol (CBD) Industry has taken leaps and bounds in recent years – It’s in the  pharmacies, in your grocery stores and it’s suddenly considered way more than just another alternative means of healing.

Dacha’s Shannon Smith writes that many people have turned to CBD to cure their anxiety, depression, pain, insomnia and much more.

With the understanding of what CBD is and can do, people have  turned the science into an art to change not only their lives, but also those nearest and dearest to  them. Usually, these dearest are their pets.

First, let’s give you an idea of why CBD is so effective.

Did you know that all mammals have a system  inside their bodies that act as natural receptors to CBD? This is called an endocannabinoid system.

This acts as our body’s regulatory system to maintain a state of homeostasis – IE, balance, within the  body. We have this system, dogs have it, horses have it… Do you see where I’m getting at here?

I know what you’re thinking: “You can’t give your horse CBD, because it will show up on their tests.”

It’s important to take note here that CBD is quite different from THC. Although derived from the  same plant, the process is different.

If you are using a CBD isolate, you will only find CBD in here,  whereas a full‐spectrum CBD will have other elements of the cannabinoid plant as well, including trace elements of THC.

Your solutions, simply put, could be using the CBD isolate for your horse, weaning prior to a race.

But why? You may not have thought of using CBD for anything relating to you or your horse, and  that’s completely okay.

Although there are more case studies and testimonials from humans, there  have also been many success stories around people using CBD for their horses to relieve anxiety,  major skin irritations, and in some cases – even slowing the growth of fatal tumors, adding years onto the horses life.

With zero negative side affects recorded so far, it’s no wonder there have been  so many queries coming our way to investigate the production of CBD products within the equine field.

For us, we understand that there is still some research to be done on this, but this does not negate the numerous benefits that have been shown and that can still continue to benefit the equestrian  community, and we’re feeling positive of what impact this can have.

We’d like to get your feedback – connect with us at [email protected] to tell us if you’ve used CBD, and how it’s helped you and your four-legged friends.
