CBD FOR HORSES
CBD oil for horses enables them to benefit from the natural healing powers of cannabis without being exposed to THC.
CBD has become an increasingly popular therapy for horses, especially those who are prone to joint problems, lameness, and anxiety. Independent trials conducted by Equine Veterinarians suggested that horses who were treated with CBD oil enjoyed detectable health benefits, including reduced anxiety, improved mobility, and reduced pain. It’s very common for horses to experience inflammation and pain in their joints. The weight of the body puts a strain on the connective tissue and the joints, and if you have a horse who is very active or they have a working role, this can further increase the risk of swelling and discomfort. CBD for horses can provide relief for general aches and pains, arthritis and joint stiffness.
Horses can endure scary, unnerving experiences and this can contribute to anxiety. If your horse is anxious about traveling or they don’t like to be contained, CBD oil can reduce stress and make them feel calm and more content, your horse will seem happier, and hopefully, they’ll continue to be their fun and playful selves.
If you are considering giving your horse CBD, it’s important to get the dosage right. A general guideline would be up to 25mg per day to boost general health, up to 80 mg per day to ease anxiety and 100-200mg per day to alleviate chronic pain. Optimum dosages will depend on the height and weight of the horse. It’s always best to start with a small dose and increase it gradually.
