Horse Formula Benefits: for anxiety, arthritis, laminitis & more!
Just like every mammal, horses have an endocannabinoid system, too! Cannabinoid receptors within their body help to regulate their nervous system, immune system, & so much more.
By adding our Horse Formula to your horses’ diet you can help them reduce pain, anxiety, inflammation, joint discomfort, gastrointestinal issues, and more!
Here are a few common ailments our Horse Formula is used for:
1. Alleviate arthritis
If your horse has a shortened stride, is suddenly unwilling to perform tasks, or appears stiff until they warm up they could be suffering from arthritis. There are two types of arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in their joints gets broken down (from overuse, injury, or age) causing the bones to rub together which results in inflammation and pain. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that results in a breakdown of cartilage and other joint tissues which causes inflammation in the joints.
Whether your horse is suffering from Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis, the active ingredient in our Hose Formula can help. Through its interaction with your horse’s endocannabinoid system, it can help reduce the inflammation and pain in your horses’ joints. For targetted relief, you can also rub on our Skin Therapy lotion.
2. Treat Laminitis
Laminitis is a painful disease that affects the tissue in your horse’s hoof caused by blood flow disruptions to the laminae. Horses with laminitis often feel pain and have inflammation in their hoof making it painful for them to walk. If your horse has laminitis they might be walking as though it is painfulor standing at an unusual angle.
Since laminitis is caused by chronic inflammation in the laminae, the active ingredient in our Horse Formula can help to reduce inflammation and relieve their pain.
3. Improve digestion & treat Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
Has your horse lost its appetite? This can be caused by flu, anxiety, stress, gastrointestinal issues, or other ailments. While you try to figure out what they are dealing with, your horse not eating will not help its body fight whatever it’s dealing with. It’s important to get their appetite back and our Horse Formula can help by soothing their digestive tract and calming down stressed-out neurons.
Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome is common among adult horses and is caused by bacterial infections which can be effectively fought with a healthy immune system. The active ingredient in our Horse Formula can also help boost your horse’s immune system and improve their gut health.
4. Relieve anxiety
If your horse has a nervous disposition, is afraid of traveling, loud noises, or being surrounded by other pets, our Horse Formula can help to manage their horse’s stress levels. Similarly to how it works for dogs & us, the active ingredient in our Horse Formula can help increase the level of serotonin (the feel-good hormone) in your horse to help keep them calm and happy.
To help your horse feel their best, simply drop 5-10ml of our Horse Formula into the inside of your horses lip twice a day! If you have any questions you can contact us here or DM us on Facebook or Instagram.
