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