Arthritis Relief for Buster

Meet Magic Kinda Silver, retired AQHA/PBHA all around, three times PBHA Champion.  Buster didn’t really want to retire at age 19, so his owner Theresa,  and Buster, teach young children how to ride.  Buster was getting a little grumpy giving all those lessons and started not wanting to do his job.  Theresa knew he really liked staying active, but figured he was in some pain.  She was giving him a popular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory but that didn’t really help him much.  Theresa decided to try the CBD pellets and within days Buster was much happier, calmer and happy to do his job.  Theresa now has all her horses on CBD because she’s seen the difference CBD can make.

We want to thank Theresa for sharing her story.  We love happy beginnings:)

Seeking Relief: CBD for Migraine & Headaches

Chronic migraine is one of the most disabling of all medical conditions, and finding a treatment can be challenging. Migraine symptoms and headaches can be debilitating, exhausting, and get in the way of living your best life.  Many prescription medications used to treat migraine have a wide array of side effects that lead to other frustrations.

If you have been suffering from migraine and headaches for a long time, it can feel hopeless… BUT there is hope for you to find relief.

CBD is a natural treatment for migraine and headaches. For thousands of years, CBD has been used with success to treat migraine and headaches – without the harsh side effects of prescription medications.

I have had a winter of migraines, with several auras along with the debilitating headaches per week. I have been migraine free after taking the soft gels for one week, for 3 weeks now, so grateful!”

CBD is becoming more prevalent in the medical community as people continue to have successful results. CBD acts as a supplement when there is an endocannabinoid deficiency, interacting with cannabinoid receptors that influence pain sensation. A recent review of using cannabis to treat migraines found that it may play a therapeutic role particularly for chronic pain disorders like migraine and headaches, stating that “cannabinoids appear to modulate and interact at many pathways inherent to migraine” (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26015168).  Another study in 2016 found a significant decrease in migraine headaches with cannabinoid use (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26749285).

You deserve to feel healthy, happy, and comfortable. CBD could alleviate the suffering cause by migraine and headaches – don’t hesitate to give it a try.

How to use CBD for Migraine and Headaches:

You may feel inclined to just take CBD when you feel migraine symptoms or a headache coming on. However, because CBD is actually rectifying a cannabinoid deficiency, you want to continue using CBD daily for best results. Keeping CBD in your system will ensure long term healing and beneficial results.




Relief for Waylon

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.

Amazing Healing for Don

Don Merisse: 2002 Hanoverian Prix St. George Dressage Gelding

So I got him in September of 2016.  He was given to me because he was dangerous – he would spin and rear frequently, and he has shivers.  I believe he was in pain then, and being forced to work through it, which was the major reason he had behavior issues.  He was very shut down emotionally.

In December of that year, he tore his LF suspensory.  I tried to do his rehab myself, but when it came time to start tack walking him, he was extremely dangerous.  He was angry, pent up, and neurotic.  I took him to a rehab facility to help me.

I finally got to the point where he was trotting laps under saddle (June 2017) but he had a terrible attitude…he had pretty much given up on life.  He colicked that month, and had to go to Rood & Riddle for surgery, where they removed a six foot long impaction.  He then flared up with a case of salmonella while at the hospital (apparently common when their immune systems are stressed) and he was put into quarantine, which further depressed him.  His recovery was complicated by the shivers, so multiple times he went down and wasn’t able to get up, and had to be put in a sling.

When I finally brought him home to my farm, he still had to be in quarantine for 30 days.  In the fall of 2017 I tried to bring him back to work, but he had severe behavioral problems, he was dangerous again, and he was lame.  The suspensory had healed, but all the time on stall rest over the past year had caused his shivers and arthritis to become unmanageable.  We tried bute, and previcox, and injections – none of it really made a difference.

By early 2018, I didn’t know what to do.  Because of his shivers, he needed to stay in work, but I couldn’t seem to get him going.  He wasn’t a good candidate for retirement, because he doesn’t do well staying outside for long, he can’t be barefoot, and he was getting progressively more depressed and angry.  He was lunging at horses, pinning his ears at people, including me, and over all had a vibe of “I give up.”  I began to think about euthanasia because I couldn’t seem to provide quality of life for him no matter what I tried.

Then Excel Eq Supplements approached me about a sponsorship, and putting Don on that product seemed to help make him a little healthier and more comfortable.  He was able to start doing some light work, and that seemed to help the shivers.  We were making slow progress, but he was still lame on his LF and RH.  I would frequently have to give him quite a bit of bute to help with that, which I knew wasn’t good for him, but I had so many variables to juggle with this horse.  Even then, the bute only helped a little. Some days were worse than others.  He still had days where he would rear and spin, but at least his mood overall had improved some.

When I started him on the CBD, he became completely sound in 2-3 days.  Since then, his ability and willingness to work has improved exponentially. He is hardly spooky at all now.  A year ago, I was terrified of this horse.  Now we can hack outside the arena, gallop in the fields, and have fun.  I don’t think this horse has ever been able to do that in his entire life.  The CBD has made him sound physically and mentally.  He has even started to bond more deeply with me– I think because he’s actually happy.  Words cannot express how much that means to me.

I can’t believe how much more effective the CBD is than anything else I’ve ever used with Don or any other horse.  100% recommend it to everyone!

CBD for Goats!!!

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!

CBD for Cash!

This is Cash, a once in a lifetime horse for this family that has won her fair share in her 19 years.  She’s a breakaway, heeling, calf horse, polebending, goat tying machine.  She started developing some pretty big knots on her knees from arthritis and her family was thinking she would have to retire.  About 5 months ago they put her on Hope Botanicals CBD 750mg tincture for the knots and general lameness.  This is how she looks today.  Pretty fast!  This short video is Cash and Jes winning a a go round at an open breakaway.  We’re pretty warm and fuzzy about this story:) #HopeBotanicals #CBD #Hopeforhealing

Pain Relief for Cooper

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

CBD for Equine Cushings

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!
