CBD FURRSDAY – ANIMAL FEED, EU vs. UK LAW?

To Whom it may concern,
Would you be so kind as to please clarify wether it is ok for one to give CBD oil/ products to their hunters/ horses and the pack/ dogs?
A COLLEAGUES OF A VERY WELL KNOW PET FOOD WEBSITE IN EUROPE: http://www.paw-treats.com would get threats sent to them!
They got messages like: “This will kill  your dog!” or “your dog will be high for days”..  and other ridiculous assumptions. “You can explain to them 1000 times that CBD is non psychoactive.


INFORMATION RE EU LAW:

INFORMATION ON THE LEGAL SITUATION OF CBD CONTAINING PET PRODUCTS:

For foods intended for human consumption there is a so-called „positive list“ in which all ingredients are listed that are approved for human consumption (eg. List of Novel Foods).

HOWEVER, THERE IS NO SUCH LIST FOR PET PRODUCTS. THE REGULATIONS ON ANIMAL FEED ARE GENERALLY MUCH MORE OPEN AND THE USE OF ANY NATURAL PLANT EXTRACT IS ALLOWED AS LONG AS THE EXTRACTS ARE MADE FROM PLANTS THAT CAN BE LEGALLY CULTIVATED IN THE EUROPEAN UNION.

For this reason, hemp extracts from European hemp varieties are suitable for producing functional treats for animals, as long as the products are labeled as „NOT INTENDED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION“. 

HEMP EXTRACTS ARE THEREFORE ALREADY REGISTERED IN THE „EUROPEAN FEED MATERIAL REGISTER“, WHICH OFFICIALLY ALLOWS AND REGULATES THEIR USE.

Please check the attachement for further info to European feed register.

Have a good Furrsday!
