    CBD Horses

    Interested in CBD for horses? Whether CBD effect, CBD dosage for horses or studies: In our article we answer the most important questions about the administration of CBD for horses. Find out now why CBD can be a natural remedy for numerous horse ailments.

    1. Is CBD even suitable for animals?

    CBD has been used for more than just humans for a while. More and more pet owners are using CBD to provide their animals with the valuable plant substances of the hemp plant - and to relieve fear and panic, for example. In contrast to many conventional medicines, CBD has hardly any side effects and cannot become addictive. CBD is a dietary supplement that can promote well-being, increase relaxation and bring the organism back into balance.

    1. When can I use CBD on horses?

    CBD for horses is just as versatile as CBD for humans. For example, you can use CBD for horses with the following problems and symptoms:

    • Stress and Anxiety
    • restlessness and nervousness
    • Joint pain
    • Muscle discomfort
    • gastrointestinal problems
    • Coat and skin inflammation

    CBD is also suitable for headshaking syndrome or Equine Cushing's Syndrome . CBD may provide natural symptom relief and increase your horse's well-being.

    1. Which CBD is suitable for horses?

    CBD oil is the best choice for horses. However, you don't need CBD oil specially formulated for horses - instead, you can give your horse the same CBD that you use yourself. Due to their size and body weight, CBD oils with a higher concentration (from 20% CBD content) are particularly recommended for horses. Then you need fewer drops and get more for your money.

    By the way: Horses have an endocannabinoid system just like humans. This controls numerous vital processes and ensures, for example, a perfect homeostasis in the entire organism - unless the system gets out of balance. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system and can restore and/or maintain balance.

    1. How do you dose it?

    Drip the CBD oil directly into your horse's mouth. In this way, the CBD can get directly into the bloodstream via the oral mucosa and take effect quickly. For dosing we recommend the following:

    • Always start with a low dose
    • Observe how your horse responds to the dose.
    • Always write down the number of drops administered.
    • If necessary, you can increase your dose every 2-3 days.

    In this way you can slowly and safely approach the optimal dose for your horse. This is probably somewhere between 0.1 to 0.5 milligrams of CBD per kilogram of body weight and per day. However, this is only a guideline! Many horse owners report that their horses often only need a few drops of CBD, despite their high body weight. Discover our CBDNOL CBD oil for pets.

    1. What does the science say?

    There are not yet many studies on CBD intake by horses. In the guide "CBD - the rediscovered natural medicine", however, the authors present a study with 41 horses:  Over a period of two weeks, the horses received CBD - and a positive effect on the emotional and physical well-being of the Horses could be observed. However, more studies are needed to definitively confirm the effects of CBD on horses.

    By the way: There are many anecdotal accounts from horse owners. Just ask well-known horse owners or search the internet for reports on CBD experiences with horses!

    1. Are there any side effects?

    Whether human, dog or horse: basically

    There are no known side effects with CBD as long as you stick to common dosages. And what happens if you overdose? Even an overdose is harmless - normally there are only symptoms such as tiredness or gastrointestinal problems. However, since you start with a low dosage and then gradually adjust it, your horse should not overdose in the first place.

Instead, CBD offers animals and humans a number of benefits that are being explored in more and more studies. CBD is a promising natural substance that is already being used to treat a variety of ailments and diseases.

    Concluding remarks

When choosing your CBD oil, make sure you choose a high-quality supplier and initially administer the CBD with a small dose. If necessary, you can then gradually increase the dosage for your horse until the desired effect occurs.
