ChillAxen pellets are hemp based pellets containing natural hemp plant phytocannabinoids, including CBD. This product is designed to be fed daily as a top dressing on horses’ feed, to provide a daily intake of cannabinoids.
Phytocannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid (EC) receptors, to help maintain healthy normal function and homeostasis. Endocannabinoid receptors reside in numerous body tissues, particularly the brain, but throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. That is likely why CBD type products are used to aid with anxiety and behavior issues, and in some cases seizure disorders.
But EC receptors are present in many other tissues as well, so benefit has also been recognized when phytocannabinoids have been used in conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract, the respiratory system, joints, and in conditions causing pain.
