Cannabinoids such as CBD for horses are found in hemp plants that are also particularly rich with terpenes along with the plant’s essential oils and resins. They provide the distinctive smells and tastes that we use in hemp-derived CBD oil for horses or CBD horse or dog treats. Terpenes are extremely important for the benefits of the “entourage effect” which means all parts of the plant work together synergistically or in cohesion to achieve the maximum benefit for your horse or dog’s health and wellness. The entourage effect occurs when all parts of the hemp plant including terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids are still present after the extraction process and production of CBD from hemp.
