Unfortunately, we are not permitted to sell CBD products intended for large animals in California. This pertains to all Equine CBD products sold in California. Please read the passage below for details regarding this restriction.
Recently, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (Farm Bill) legalized the growing of hemp, yet it did not grant the right to use hemp and hemp products in food or drugs for livestock. Over the last five years California has adopted several new laws and regulations around cannabis production; however, cannabis for use in livestock was not permitted.
All hemp and hemp-derived ingredients and cannabis or cannabis-derived ingredients may not be used in commercial feed or livestock drug products, as these ingredients are unapproved for livestock per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and subsequently have not been approved for use in livestock in California. The FDA possesses authority to regulate drug products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and Section 351 of the Public Health Service Act.
CDFA, in part, recognizes ingredients listed in the Official Publication (OP) of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) as being acceptable for use in livestock feed. At this time, there are no approved food additive petitions or ingredient definitions listed in the AAFCO OP for any part of hemp or cannabis. CDFA is also unaware of any Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) conclusions for these ingredients. In addition, literature reports have raised safety concerns for animals consuming CBD, including, but not limited to, male reproductive toxicity and liver toxicity.
