How CBD Helps Horses
You likely have heard by now about how CBD helps us (1) and our favorite furry friends (2) – including livestock and horses – because although we’re different species, we share the biological systems that allow CBD to alleviate various physical ailments.
CBD is a natural compound that influences the endocannabinoid physiological system (ECS), found in mammals, fish, birds and reptiles. ECS regulates the balance of an organism’s pain, mood, appetite and reproductive health. When one is experiencing excessive trouble in any area, CBD, a phytocannabinoid, has been found to help harmonize those imbalances.
Horses are unfortunately prone to health issues, experiencing a wider variety of ailments compared to many other domesticated animals. Due to this, horses especially gain from incorporating hemp into their diets. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) advise (3) that horses must maintain a diverse diet beyond simple feed or grasses to ensure a healthy quality of life. Animals in Europe have been fed hemp for decades (4) because some of the main components of hemp seeds include Omega Fatty Acids and proteins (5). Naturally high in Omega-3, -6, -9 and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), hemp seeds are integral to healthy cell growth (6) from animals’ brains to skin tissues alike. Further, hemp seeds also have all nine amino acids, which are crucial to balancing various physiological functions. Including hemp in Seabiscuit's diet will certify he will be receiving the vital nutrients and fibres to uphold all those high performance standards.
Further, when consumed in oil form, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K and Omega fatty acids are more easily absorbed into the body. This is why Skyline Isolations crafts high-grade CBD hemp oil (7) for Black Beauty’s various conditions, which can help with any and all of the following:
Support cardiovascular health
Reduce muscle glycogen depletion
Improve skin, coat, hooves, mane and tail condition
Analgesic and anti-inflammatory benefits
Help prevent lameness
Relieve general anxiety
Supplement a healthy diet
Ease ligament and tendon injury
Aid wither woes
Soothe equine colic
No adverse side effects from using CBD have been recorded (6) for horses, humans or other animals, so you can rest assured Brego will appreciate the supplement. If you’re concerned whether hemp will get your horses “high,” trust that industrially grown hemp is cultivated specifically for its low THC content-- which is the compound with psychoactive effects-- so hemp is unable to create the “high” commonly associated with cannabis.
While the benefits speak for themselves, it’s recommended to contact your veterinarian when incorporating new treatments for your horses. We at Skyline are confident in the positive advantages CBD can have for Shadowfax and his herd. We welcome you to gift our CBD horse tinctures to your beloved stallion. Not only are they the highest quality CBD on the market, but they are also the most affordable, as we believe these supplements should be accessible for all mares, mustangs and their favorite equestrian enthusiasts.
