Research shows that horses like all mammals have an Endo-cannabinoid System (ECS) which produce the body’s own Endo-cannabinoid compounds, which science now knows play an integral role in maintaining the body’s homeostasis, meaning the ability of the body to function within safe limits

This system works with a network of receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the central and peripheral nervous systems. At the cellular level, it is hugely responsible for regulating balances in the body’s immune response, appetite, gut metabolism, memory functions and more.
