The system is built of CB receptors that relate specifically to daily function, pain and mood.

Read on to learn more about hemp-based CDB therapy from Ian Pedersen, Director of Hemp Research at Source CBD, LLC.

by Jennie Kramer

It’s a new year and resolutions to start good habits (or abandon bad ones) will be made and, more often than not, broken. Discouraged? Don’t be! The average human brain has approximately 100 billion neurons, or nerve cells that transmit nerve signals to and from the brain, and each one has the ability to remodel or reorganize. In this feature article, Senior Editor Jennie Kramer explains how to harness the power of neuroplasticity to enjoy a happy, healthy new year with your natural horse!
