HempMy Pet™ Announces Agreement with Tarleton State University for Research Study on the Effects of CBD in Horses

HempMy PetTM, an HM Health LLC company, announces that it has signed an agreement with Tarleton State University, a member of The Texas A & M University System, for a research study on the Behavioral and Physiological effect of full spectrum Abacus™ Cannabidiol (CBD) oil when used to mediate stress and pain in Horses.

The objective of the research program is to explore opportunities that full spectrum Abacus™ CBD oil may provide to the livestock industry as a tool to mediate stressors, minimize injury during transport and handling, and promote health by minimizing overstimulation of the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands, commonly called the HPA axis.

Environmental stressors such as handling, transport and housing can affect aspects such as weight gain and feed efficiency, in addition to stimulating stereotypic behaviors such as bar biting, self-mutilation and excessive aggression. Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to decrease anxiety from a variety of different stimuli in studies with both dogs and mice.

“We have already seen an overwhelmingly positive response in the first clinical trials study we did with Colorado State University Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, using our full spectrum infused oil to assess the impact of hemp-derived Cannabidiol (CBD) on dogs suffering with chronic pain and decreased functionality due to osteoarthritis. We are excited to now be a part of this study for horses, because we believe that the findings will be just as positive and will continue the advancement of using hemp-derived products as medicine for many ailments for all types of animals that can greatly benefit from this plant” says Natalie Mondine, Co-Founder and COO of HM Health LLC / HempMy Pet.

In various laboratory animal and human studies, it has been suggested that cannabidiol (CBD) is able to reduce both anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), however the effects of CBD on indices of stress in livestock have not yet been reported. This study, undertaken by Tarleton State University, will investigate the bioavailability, sensitivity, pharmacokinetics, sex effects, derivatives and total body clearance in horses.

The Tarleton University professor who will oversee the study, Dr. Kimberly Guay, Ph.D., P.A.S, said “We are excited to explore and quantify the potential benefits and associated physiological effects of CBD in horses and other domestic animals.”

The hope is that the study will reveal potential benefits of CBD use in that livestock, horses specifically, that may save producers and horse owners money due to lowered disease and injuries, and most importantly, overall improved quality of life and welfare of domesticated animals.

How Long Does it Take for CBD to Start Working

CBD hemp oil has become something of a hot health trend in recent years for people suffering from a number of medical conditions. From arthritis to anxiety, Parkinson’s disease to heart disease, countless people are attributing their improved health and decreased symptoms to CBD. For decades, hemp oil was stigmatized due to its cannabinoid properties; people associate hemp with marijuana, which is still not legal in all 50 states. However, CBD hemp oil does not produce the same psychoactive effects as THC, the active ingredient in marijuana products, despite being derived from the same plant. People who have tried CBD hemp oil can’t rave enough about its highly beneficial natural healing properties, and credit it with helping make them feel better.

CBD hemp oil has gained an abundance of popularity recently among the human population, and it’s no surprise that people have begun to administer CBD-infused supplements and oils to their pets in order to help improve their quality of life as well. CBD for dogs, cats, and other common household pets provides people with a natural solution to help lessen their pets’ symptoms of anxiety, relieve joint pain, and generally improve their overall health and well-being. CBD hemp oil has also become something of a trend among horse owners to help their majestic and beautiful horses maintain their lifestyles well into their golden years.

One of the most common questions that horse owners have before administering CBD hemp oil for the first time is how long it takes to begin working. In truth, a number of factors determine when a horse will feel and fully benefit from the effects of the oil. For starters, the manner in which the CBD oil is ingested can play a significant role in the length of time it takes to begin working. Humans have a choice of taking CBD oil by “vaping,” or inhaling vapors, as well as via ingestible supplements such as foods, chews, and candies, or sublingual (under-the-tongue) drops. Most CBD supplements for horses, however, are in oil form and are administered via drops that can either be placed under the tongue or added to feed.

If you choose to administer CBD hemp oil to your horse sublingually, you can expect him or her to feel the full effects after approximately half an hour, depending upon how much of a dose you give, as well as whether your horse received the drops on an empty or full stomach. Adding the drops to your horse’s feed may cause the oil to work more slowly, with your horse benefiting from the effects after about an hour.

How much of a dose you should give your horse is largely dependent upon its size. It is best to consult with your veterinarian before administering any medication or supplements to your horse.

CBD hemp oil has been instrumental in helping millions of individuals feel better, with some people reporting amazing results including reduced or eliminated pain and relief from chronic symptoms associated with an underlying medical condition. By choosing to give your horse CBD hemp oil, you can be sure that you’re doing all you can to preserve its quality of life and allow him or her to reach old age with dignity.
