This is Mach, a beloved member of the Karl family. We know we’re probably being too sentimental but to have a special horse and then have them diagnosed with a disease such as polyneuritis is devastating. This disease is very similar to multiple sclerosis in people.
“Mach has been on Hope Botanicals CBD pellets for one month now. He is now down to 1/4 tablet of previcox once a day. On Friday, he bucked in his field and cantered in to get fed, for the first time in a year!” – Betsey
We love to hear these stories. It makes us pretty warm and fuzzy:)
Where to begin….I purchased Spartan as a 3-month-old in the year of 2011 and he came to live with me a 5 months old. I have done all the training and care for Spartan. I have always instilled a low grain/high fiber diet, access to grass or hay 24/7 and tons of turn out. I also attempt to keep stress levels down in all my horse’s lives. One would think I was doing everything right to prevent ulcers. At the age of 5 I started to trailer him more frequently for lessons and a few shows and by that fall he was exhibiting behavior issues. Many said it was him just being five years old. However, my gut told me otherwise. I decided to scope him and found he had grade 2 ulcers. Did the Ulcergard 30-day treatment, rescoped and he was healed. Yipee right? Well, we still experienced some behavioral issues that told me not all was well so I continued to look into it further. We then treated for hind gut ulcers. With great success, he was finally feeling better. The behaviors went away and he was going great. It has now been 2.5 years of treating and re-treating for ulcer fair ups. It was clear to me that no matter how much I tried to keep “stress” out of his life, he was prone to getting ulcers. He has always been a super sensitive horse, reactive and over thinks everything. Over the last 2.5 years, I have spent $1000’s of dollars on every supplement that you could imagine. I decided that throwing all these ulcer treatments at him was just not going to do the trick. I had to get to the core of the issue So I decided to do two things; 1. I took him off all his supplements and put him on the very basics, hay, grass, a very small amount of grain and a vitamin supplement called Equipride and 2. put him on CBD oil. I decided on CBD oil for two reasons, to help with anxiety and inflammation. Hope Botanicals CBD oil has been absolutely amazing. The change in Spartan’s reactiveness is impressive, he finally seems at peace with himself and he is moving better than ever. He has more articulation in his joints and is so much more focused in his work. His coat is amazing and he is the fattest he has ever been in his life. Jenna has been so helpful and quick to answer all my questions and so supportive. I initially reached out to her months ago but my vets pooh-poohed the thought of CBD oil. I regret that I didn’t try it sooner. Thank you Jenna and Hope Botanicals for such a great product. – Jody
This is Waylon. He had ulcers and as of a few months ago his ulcers are gone. However, 1/3 of his stomach is permanently damaged with extensive scar tissue and he has “tenting” which has changed the way his stomach works. Judging by the findings he’s most likely had ulcers most of his life. He has a significant scar on his back hoof where the whole heel bulb and 1/4 of his foot was either removed or was barley hanging on. No clue when or how it happened, he came to me with it. He’s considered chronic by the vets at OSU and that he won’t ever be “cured”. It’s a pretty sad situation and I’m not sure what to do. He’s unhappy and in pain most days. The CBD helps take the edge off and has allowed him a respite from windsucking as he was chronic with this and even able to windsuck with a cribbing collar. I’m happy he is getting some relief with the CBD pellets.
We wanted to share this testimonial. By now we shouldn’t be amazed by what CBD can do, but we’re always so pleased to hear it first hand. We love to pass on information like this so we can all learn the benefits.
Hi. I don’t know if you have ever had success stories with use in goats, but I have been using these pellets in a few of my goats now for a month. One has arthritis issues, another just kidded and is stressed as well as has immune system dysfunction from an infection. Its amazing stuff. I definitely see a shift in their attitude and behavior and I am hoping it helps their pain and discomfort as well!
This is Cooper, a 10 year old lab mix. Cooper has osteosarcoma and has had his left front leg amputated. His owners elected not to do chemotherapy treatment and eased him off his pain meds, with the help of Hope Botanicals natural CBD. Cooper is recovering super well and his owners are attributing this to CBD. Cooper is getting 15mg of our Natural Flavor CBD twice per day. He’s a happy dog and is back to his old self. Needless to say, his owners are very happy with his recovery
I had spent a lot of time and energy trying to figure out how to get my aging horse, Joe, who is a 25 year old Appaloosa gelding, to put on weight. His hair coat was dull and thick and his usual personality was muted as well. We learned from our vet that he had Cushings. Some horses react to Cushings by struggling to keep on weight and have poor muscle tone. That is what Joe was struggling with in addition to the usual Cushings symptoms. I was apprehensive to put him on pharmaceutical medicine. After hearing and seeing very positive reviews of a variety of equine conditions being improved with the use of CBD oil, I decided this seemed like a good choice for my special guy. The first time I gave him a dose of CBD oil he instantly started relaxing. He immediately was yawning and licking his lips and kept it up for at least five minutes. The chronic stress that his body had been unsuccessfully dealing with was being relieved! Jo has now been getting 25 mg of Hope Botanicals 750 mg CBD oil twice a day for a month and a half. He has completely blown his old hair coat and has a nice healthy one showing through and he has put on quite a bit of weight and looks like his old self, and thankfully his personality is back. He has been enjoying being ridden and is doing the important job of teaching a teenage girl all the fun of competing at the Western States Stock Horse shows. I am so thankful to have this option and even more thankful that it has worked so well! We have already spent 21 awesome years together and I am so glad to look forward to more!
This is Paisley. She’s 10 years old and loves to see how many of her toys she can mange to carry around! About 6 months ago she really hurt her back digging a hole the size of Texas to get a mole. We took her to the vet and realized she had a lot of arthritis so we put her on meds for that. I don’t like to give too much medication, especially if it’s just masking pain and not really helping or healing. I ordered CBD unflavored tincture from Hope Botanicals and started giving it to Paisley two times a day. I’ve decreased her pain meds by half after a month and I can tell she’s feeling great! Dobermans are prone to cancer so I’m thrilled to be giving her CBD for the pain and know that it will kill cancer cells also.
This product does exactly as it states. I put my quarter horse on the CBD pellets 5 days ago and gave him the tincture before going to a barrel race yesterday. Bert was an absolute mess at our last show 2 weeks ago; he could not focus in the arena and wouldn’t listen to me. I actually scratched him for the day by the 3rd race! Yesterday, after CBD he was calm and collected and did his job well. We placed in all 7 races and he was a good boy ALL day. I highly recommend these products !
I have an 11 year old Lab that was developing arthritis in her hips. Vet said she will probably always be on meds from now on. My thought was to give this a 30 trial period if it works great if not back to the prescription meds. After 1 week on the medium dose for a 100 lb. bog she has already shown improvements! Can’t wait to see what the next couple of weeks will bring. Thumbs up on this product and Hope Botanicals. Looking forward to trying the horse products.
My review may sound unbelievable but every word is true. I had a 4.5 cm thyroid adenoma and recommendation was to have my thyroid removed. I have used 2 drops of CBD oil on my tumor every morning and every night for 2 months and I also take 1/2 dropper of CBD oil under my tongue morning and night–my final consultation with surgeon–it had shrunk to 3.2 cm! I knew it was smaller and is now barely visible. I was preparing to live my life without my thyroid! I also sleep wonderfully now and my stamina/wind is better I have noticed on our daily dog walk. I also give my horse diagnosed with navicular syndrome a twice daily scoop of CBD pellets and he has started running and playing with the other horses rather than just watching them! I don’t write reviews but this time I wholeheartedly offered to write one–life changing for me and my horse.
