What Is CBD Used For?

Our bespoke veterinarian horse products utilise the healing powers of cannabidiol (CBD) oil from the hemp plant which has been used by people for thousands of years to optimise health and combat pain. 

Early studies have shown CBD can help combat a number of conditions like:¹

 Digestion
 Anxiety 
 Joint Issues
 Chronic Pain
 Allergies & Skin Conditions


How does CBD help horses? 

Horses kept in stables, and competition horses often exhibit behavioural signs of stress, including cribbing, pacing, windsucking, and generally anxious behaviour.¹

Stressed horses may also suffer from sleep deprivation which can lead to a decline in athletic performance. Many veterinarians agree that CBD is helpful in anxious and stressed dogs, and owners may find that CBD helps manage stress in their horses.

Researchers in one of the only studies examining CBD use in horses found that it might improve their anxiety levels.²

How does CBD for horses work?

In short, CBD works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Scientists have been investigating the Endocannabinoid System ECS and cannabinoids like CBD since around 1930, when they first noted the unique structure of the hemp plant’s compounds.³

Following decades of research, scientists began to understand the essential link between cannabinoids and various bodily systems. The ECS is a complex cell signalling network found in all animals, from sea urchins to horses.³

Animals depend on the ECS to regulate homeostasis or balance within their bodies. Experts now understand that the ECS helps regulate mood, appetite, pain, and other essential functions. The ECS consists of internal cannabinoids called endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and enzymes.⁴

Endocannabinoids are produced naturally within the body. The hemp plant contains phytochemicals that can activate receptors in the ECS and mimic the actions of endocannabinoids.

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors:

● CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain and central nervous system.⁵

● CB2 receptors are typically cited in the liver and immune system.⁵

CBD to relieve pain and inflammation 

Athletic injuries among horses are common. Additionally, as horses age, health conditions such as arthritis and laminitis become widespread.

Pain and inflammation can reduce the working lifespan of horses, and owners spend considerable time and money addressing these issues. Understandably, finding a natural supplement that could support their horse’s recovery would be beneficial.

However, little information exists on CBD use for pain and inflammation in horses, and many of the reports are anecdotal. Researchers in one study found significant evidence of a link between CBD for horses and reduced pain. The authors noted an overall improvement in health and a continual improvement in the horses’ pain response.

CBD could support your horse⁷ as they recover from injuries, meaning that they can return to their former performance more rapidly.

How to give CBD to your horse

There are a number of ways to give your horse CBD.

You can add the drops to food or if they are experiencing reduced appetite, you can drop the CBD oils directly into the side of the mouth.

Ideally the drops are placed under the tongue, where they will be rapidly absorbed through the pink mucosa. This is known as the sublingual route (literally, ‘under the tongue’), and can be safely done using your complimentary dosing syringe. 

Sublingual absorption is efficient in terms of bioavailability. The percentage of each dose absorbed is generally higher than that achieved by means of oral ingestion and is absorbed into the bloodstream within 15 minutes.

The easiest way to administer sublingually is to face the same way as your horse and use one hand to steady the head and simultaneously lift the lip with a thumb.

With the other hand, gently introduce the Naturecan syringe into the corner of the mouth (which will likely cause the horse to lick and chew) and use this opportunity to deposit the oil in the space underneath the tongue.

Syringes are included with all our CBD Oils.
