Toronto Company Looks to Make Cannabis the Next Big Thing for Horses
Toronto-based company CannaHorse is hoping cannabis is the answer to improving equine health.
“With more than 15 million horses in North America and Europe, the equine healthcare market is a growing billion-dollar industry. We recognize the opportunity to bring the power of cannabis and cannabinoids we see working in humans and other animals to life for horses,” Warren Byrne, founder and president of CannaHorse, said in a press release.
Earlier this week, the company announced the “launch of four product lines, created from specific formulations of cannabis to treat common ailments such as pain and inflammation, anxiety/calming, exercise and surgical recovery, and overall wellness.”
Despite the launch, the products won’t be on the shelves anytime soon. Although legislators are campaigning to allow cannabis use for pets, “the law does not allow veterinarians to prescribe pot for pets, even though preliminary research suggests it could be beneficial in treating pain, seizures, anxiety and other disorders — much as it is for humans,” CBC reports.
