Why did CBD not work for my horse?
A St. Louis newspaper recently tested 12 brands of CBD oil sold in Missouri? 11 of those brands came from China and had no CBD in them at all and the 12th bottle only had a minute amount of CBD. So this is the reason that CBD does not work on people if they bought it from an unreliable source.
When purchasing CBD Oil, go to the manufacturer's website and look at the Certificates of Analysis. If you are buying from a legitimate seller, they must list these lab results to be able to legally sell their product. If you can't locate it on their website, send them a message or call them and ask them to produce the report.
There are two different versions of CBD. The first one is full-spectrum which means they the CBD has less than .3% THC. The second is an isolate which all of the THC has been stripped out. See our blog at https://www.hjequine.com/blog/?42654/what-is-the-difference-between-full-spectrum-cbd-and-an-isolate-cbd-oil for more information.
Full-spectrum: A full spectrum CBD has many cannabinoids including terpenes, and essential oils (1). When we look at the human body or animal body we are made up of many different natural chemicals and when you have a full spectrum CBD that has many different naturally occurring chemicals as well, the body will more likely be supported better with a full spectrum of those naturally occurring chemicals because the body will respond better to them. Think about when you take a sleeping pill. If you keep taking them your body will get used to the pills and the sleep aid will eventually quit working. Since the full-spectrum CBD is all-natural and not stripped of the THC and other compounds, humans, dogs, horses, donkey's and mules systems will never get used to it. So it will always work at maximum efficiency.
Isolate: is where the CBD has no other cannabinoids, oils, flavonoids, plant parts or terpenes (1) just that one active constituent. This would be preferred by some if they want it to target a specific ailment CBD is good for.
