The owner of Hempine was first introduced to CBD by her fiance who is a former professional athlete, and is obsessed with all things health. When he explained that CBD works the same way for all mammals, she knew she wanted to help spread awareness of it and do her part to help reduce a lot of unnecessary suffering.
She believes that animals experience the same feelings that we do, so whether they are in physical pain from injuries or digestive problems, or are suffering from anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder, we all prone to these experiences at some point along our journeys, so any and all help goes a long way!
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural and safe cannabinoid, found most abundantly in Hemp. It is non-addictive, and non-psychoactive (it can't get you high!).
CBD works by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The main role of the ECS is to regulate homeostasis, which means to restore balance. It is involved in a variety of physiological processes, including regulating pain and inflammation, cardiovascular and digestive health, cognitive and memory functions, immunity, and lots more. All mammals, including humans, horses and dogs have an ECS, but not all mammals have sufficient cannabinoids in their system, which is where supplementation can come in.
Hempine CBD is sourced from the flowers of Organic Hemp plants, which is the highest quality CBD possible.
Is CBD Safe?
Studies show that cannabidiol administration is safe and non-toxic in both humans and animals, and does not affect physiological parameters like heart rate, body temperature or blood pressure.
No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy human volunteers, even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day.
Racehorse trainers have used as much as 2,000 mg of CBD for single prerace purposes without any adverse effects noted.
Hempine CBD products are independently laboratory tested to prove they contain no THC.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes - Hempine CBD products are 100% legal as they contain no THC.
They are also allowed for use in Equine sporting competitions.
