Alpha Therapeutics LLC, a business based in Scottsdale, AZ, has announced that they now offer CBD oil for horses. The company, which produces and distributes cannabidiol (CBD) oil, has announced that CBD oil can be used to help horses in the same way that it can help humans.
Geoff Dada, CEO of Alpha Therapeutics LLC, says, “Horses tend to live in instinctive fear of a number of stress-causing traits. They instinctively fear falling or tripping. Since they cannot see what may be behind them, they may be afraid of being overtaken by an unseen danger. Of course, most horses would rather be free to run wild, with no constraints on them. Anxiety is just one of the ailments which plague the equine world. This is one of the ways in which CBD oil can help horses. It can help them manage their anxiety and stress.”
Aside from anxiety, horses may also suffer from medical and physical problems. They may develop trailering fear, muscle soreness, stall rest, arthritis, chronic laminitis, and herd bound problems. They can also develop degenerative joint disease, just like humans, and the symptoms can appear as chronic pain, swelling, and stiffness of the joints.
Chronic laminitis is a painful condition that horses can experience. This is due to the disruption of blood flows to the laminae. The laminae structures in the foot are the basis for securing the wedge-shaped bone in the foot to the wall of the hoof. When the laminae structures become inflamed, the laminae can become permanently weakened. This condition can also interfere with the bond between the bone and the hoof wall. And because horses are naturally herd animals, they get to be anxious when they are separated from other horses.
Furthermore, another problem that can affect the health of horses and their quality of life is muscle soreness. Thus, horse trainers, horse owners, veterinarians and farriers may all find benefits from using equine CBD oil. By using approved dosages, CBD oil can alleviate general equine anxiety; can help horses during hauling and transporting; can be used as daily overall supplement for health; can help manage aches and pains; can ease arthritis and joint discomfort; can help in behavior modification; can be used as training aid; can reduce show anxiety; can be used during body clipping and grooming; and can be used in veterinary appointments and general horse well-being and health.
Geoff Dada points out that, “Alpha Therapeutics has worked closely with the equine industry to develop a non-psychoactive therapeutic ingredient which contains no THC. The use of hemp products within the equine industry is increasing. CBD oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are known for the health benefits they provide.”
Other benefits from the omega-3 fatty acids found in CBD oil include support for immune function; reduction of inflammation; improvement of respiratory and joint health issues; and helping in the treatment of skin conditions and allergies. The product can also provide positive reproductive advantages, including increased sperm concentration, vitality and motility; boost colostrum quality; enhanced passive transfer of antibodies to foals; and improved fertility.
CBD oil for horses can act as anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, anti-convulsion, anti-emetic, anti-anxiolytic, and analgesic compound. There are no negative side effects and it can easily be administered to horses, whether they are large or small, or whether they are young or old. The product is completely natural and its production is always carefully monitored. CBD is not listed as a prohibitive supplement in competition rules.
Geoffrey Dada joined Alpha Therapeutics in 2018, bringing with him over 15 years of experience in business management. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in corporate communication from Manhattan College in 2004. He was previously the CEO and president of HR Base Camp, where significant corporate growth was achieved because of his focus on execution and operational efficiency.
