      CBD for larger animals and livestock - does it work?

      All mammals have the same endocannabinoid system so CBD affects cows and horses the same way it affects humans.

      Just like humans consuming CBD, it does not get them high. It works towards maintaining homeostasis in the brain, spinal cord, skin, lymph nodes, gastrointestinal tract, and even the liver by interacting with the receptors that are present there.

      Cannabinoid receptors are the most numerous types of receptors in our bodies.

      Phytocannabinoids (phyto meaning from plants) like cannabidiol (CBD) can also act at these receptors to change pain pathways, serotonin levels, and even help seizure activity.

      CBD offers a safe and complementary approach to wellness and can be extremely useful in livestock that cannot tolerate NSAIDs or corticosteroids. 

      Plant-based medicine can be a great alternative for those looking to help their horses be more comfortable

      Benefits of using CBD:

      Reduces Inflammation: If your horse/cow has inflammation due to a previous injury or chronic disease, CBD oil can help them. It will work with their brain’s receptors to help calm down chemicals it sends out which produces inflammation. Because of this, it can help horses that have severe inflammatory problems, like equine arthritis and hepatitis.

      Reduces pain: Because CBD oil helps with inflammation, it can also work to calm severe pain down. This is because it tricks their brain into sending out calming effects to reduce the side effects of unbearable pain.

      Reduces stress: If your animal is stressed, such as being put in a new environment they don’t like, hemp oil can be helpful. It’s able to do this because it tricks their brain and has it sends out serotonin which can boost their mood and make them feel more energetic.

      Enhances well-being: Depression can be a serious problem in horses as it can cause them to become lethargic and have a lack of appetite. Just as with stress, CBD oil can help with depression by releasing serotonin and improving your horse’s endocannabinoid system. It will encourage them to eat, play, and walk - things which can be impacted by depression.

      Strengthens Immune system: CBD oil helps to strengthen their immune system and it keeps it functioning well which can help their body to better defend itself from harmful illnesses. It can also help prevent inflammation which can contribute to severe diseases.

      Reduces Arthritis:  Older horses tend to suffer from arthritis which can be very painful. CBD oil works to help soothe arthritis pain by not only reducing inflammation but keeping their joints flexible. 

      Calms them down: CBD oil has very calming effects making it perfect for horses or cows who have anxiety, stress, or depression. It will trick their brain’s receptors which in return will help to keep them relaxed and free from whatever is worrying them.

      Reduces Allergies: CBD oil will help their immune system to fight off the allergens causing them distress by reducing inflammation and eventually eliminating the allergens from their body. Eventually, this can lead to them having smaller allergic reactions to none at all.

      How much CBD oil should your horse/cow take?

      Most vets recommend starting with about 40mg of CBD oil daily. This way, you’ll be able to check how the CBD oil is working for your horse and can stop if there seems to be a problem. You’ll want to consider their age, weight, height, and intensity of the problem you plan to use the CBD oil for. Consult with our doctors to know the accurate dosage for your livestock.

      Soma Flora: A Cannabis brand with the finest quality Ayurvedic Potions

      When we think Ayurvedic healing practices, what may come to mind are the Vedic scriptures and the wealth of knowledge they hold. Ayurveda goes back almost 5000 years and is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. Just like this healing modality, Soma Flora believes in maintaining the fine balance and health of the mind, body and spirit in order to live a healthy life.

      Soma Flora is a product 5000 years in the making. ‘Soma’ was essentially a mysterious plant/drink that the sages and saints used to heal, in combination with mantras and rituals. While the ancient formulation of Soma has been lost to time, this is a faithful reproduction bringing together cannabis oil and other flora of India with the same intention of bringing peace, relief and bliss into your life. It is an attempt to resurrect an ancient vision, a historic dream and bring it back to the consciousness of the people. 

      Soma Flora made its entry into the Cannabis movement with a range of CBD Edibles such as Honey, Medical Cannabis Oils, Cordyceps Capsules and more. They plan to branch out and bring Hemp clothing, innovative Vijaya products and Ayurvedic formulations into the market.

      Currently, Soma Flora has brought Cosmic Elixir and Lunar Potion into the market. Both of these products are exceptionally unique and loved by customers who use them as a healing modality. What makes these products unique is the formulation of herbs and plants that have been known for their healing properties. For example, Cosmic Elixir uses passion flower, betel nut, kanna and mimosa pudica along with Cannabis – CBD, THC and CBG. And the Lunar Potion uses fennel and nutmeg along with Cannabis. Look anywhere in the world and you won’t find this unique blend of healing ingredients. Soma Flora aims to bring back Soma as a psychotropic medium of exploration for the people and connect them to a higher purpose.

      Even though Soma Flora is just over a year old, it has risen to be one of the leading Vijaya brands in India. It connects people with our rich heritage and is to be used as a vehicle for healing. With one foot in the past, one in the future and its heart in the right place, Soma Flora makes its mark in the Cannabis market.

       

       

      Cannabis – Oil, Tincture & Paste: What are the differences and which one is for you?

      Cannabis – Oil, Tincture & Paste: What are the differences and which one is for you?

      For anyone who stumbles upon cannabis and its healing properties, it can get confusing to make a choice. This is because the current cannabis market is replete with options and although this is an exciting thing, it can be overwhelming for a first timer. As the variety grows, so should the clarity. This is why we’re about to give you a complete lowdown of each medium of cannabis products – whether it’s full-spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate, we’re going to explain the various formats you can consume these in and this will help you gauge what’s best for you.

      Let’s get started with the most common mix up – CBD Oil vs. CBD Tincture

      Many still perceive CBD oil and CBD tinctures interchangeably. However, this is a common mistake (made by some brands too) and they do come with some differences.

      CBD tincture

      A ‘tincture’ became associated with a dropper style bottle. But this is not what differentiates the two as CBD Oil and CBD tinctures can come in dropper style bottles. Simply put – the main difference lies in the solvent used to extract CBD.

      CBD tinctures are an alcohol-based extract. High-proof alcohol the solvent used to extract the natural compounds of the cannabis plant and is also used in the finished product. This gives CBD tinctures a very bitter taste but a longer shelf life. The bitter taste is masked with additives like sweeteners, flavoring, or vegetable glycerin. Some companies might also add vitamins, herbal extracts, or supplements like melatonin, depending on the goal of the product.

      CBD Oil

      CBD Oil is often a blend of CBD Extract (or paste) and carrier oil like MCT coconut oil. CBD oil is usually made by extracting other compounds from the plant material along with CBD such as terpenes and flavonoids – both of which come with their own benefits. The method used to extract this is called supercritical CO2, a process which helps retain the bioavailability, sustainability and quality of the plant. After this paste is extracted, it is then mixed with the carrier oil. Sometimes, essential oils are also used for their own benefits and flavor. CBD oils are more commonly found and even the products labeled CBD tinctures or CBD oil tinctures are more often CBD oils.

      CBD Paste

      CBD paste is the most concentrated extract and in terms of potency is the most potent among the three. CBD paste is the form of CBD that is usually added to carriers like MCT oil for further consumption. CBD paste is for those who need to consume higher quantities of CBD for medicinal purposes. CBD paste is also more cost effective and can be used to make your own CBD edibles to experiment and have fun with your medicinal intake of CBD. However, pastes usually come in a syringe and it can be hard to dispense and figure out the dosage.

      We hope these differentiating factors help you make the right choice for your purchase. Another ideal way to do so is to consult with our doctors and make a purchase with their guidance.
