How will my horse act on CBD Oil?
When a horse owner decides to start giving their horse CBD Hemp Oil, it is usually due to pain management, inflammation, appetitive, calming, etc. Often the first question we hear is, “how will the CBD oil impact my horse’s behavior?” We suggest you do your research and make sure you are buying your equine CBD oil from a reputable company that has the correct dosage of CBD oil for your horse. The calculations for CBD oil is not the same as it is for people, or even dogs. Equine digestive systems are extremely sensitive so the incorrect dosage could be harmful. Let’s be honest, CBD oil is expensive so why give your horse more than necessary.
Also, know the difference between isolates, broad and full-spectrum CBD. These differences can play a role in how your horse’s behavior is impacted with the CBD oil. A full spectrum CBD has many cannabinoids including terpenes, and essential oils. When we look at the human body or animal body, we see how we are made up of many different natural chemicals. When you have a full spectrum CBD that has many different natural occurring chemicals as well, the body is more likely to be better supported with a full spectrum of those natural occurring chemicals because the body can more easily recognize natural chemical compounds. We see with our horse supplements, that the horse’s behavior with the CBD oil is a very positive change. An Isolate, however, is where the CBD has no other cannabinoids, oils, flavonoids, plant parts or terpenes; it just has that one active constituent. This would be preferred by some if they want it to target a specific ailment for which CBD helps. Broad spectrum has a mix of both full spectrum and isolate in it.
Most of our clients have noticed a difference within two days to one week of starting their horses on CBD oil. We have actually seen inflammation go down overnight. In about a week, you should notice that your horse’s behavior with the CBD oil helps as their appetite increases, they started playing in the pasture again, running faster and moving correctly. When it comes to calming a horse down due to stall rest, trailering or anxiety, doubling the daily dose might be necessary.
After a few months of your horse, mule or donkey taking CBD oil, you then can start decreasing the amount in half. Your equine will tell you pretty quickly whether they need a full dose or a decreased dose. If you notice that your horse isn’t feeling as well on a partial dose, bring it back up to a full dose.
We are positive you will see your horse’s behavior impacted with the CBD oil; results showing that your horse, mule and donkeys are going to feel better within a short amount of time. Shop our CBD horse supplements today to start bringing that joy back to your horse.
