SmartPak leads the way with new single-ingredient supplement paired with study of safe use
Cannabidiol, also called ‘CBD’, is one of the fastest growing ingredients in the supplement industry and continues to gain popularity in equine supplements. SmartPak is pleased to introduce Smart & Simple CBD Pellets, which is backed by first-of-its-kind research supporting its safe use in horses.
“We are excited to add to the growing body of evidence around the use of CBD in horses with a university-performed, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on our product,” said Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s staff veterinarian – research and medical director. “And we are pleased to offer Smart & Simple CBD Pellets to the equine community with this extra level of confidence.”
Horse owners may choose to supplement their horses with CBD to support a healthy response to inflammation and to help address discomfort associated with normal exercise and aging. It is also thought to support a calm, relaxed disposition in horses that experience excess stress and anxiety.
CBD offers a whole-horse approach to health, wellness, and comfort. Smart & Simple CBD Pellets are a great way to introduce horses to this new ingredient by providing CBD as a standalone. The product provides 150mg of CBD per scoop to help support overall health and well-being in adult horses. It’s available in tasty, convenient, easy-to-administer pellets that are picky-eater approved. SmartPak engages an independent third-party lab to test both the CBD raw material and the finished product to ensure purity and quality. Each lot of the CBD raw material is tested to ensure it contains <0.3% THC based on federal requirements.
As one of the leaders in equine supplement research, SmartPak teamed up with Dr. Frank Andrews, DVM, MS, DACVIM of LSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Baton Rouge, LA to conduct its research on Smart & Simple CBD Pellets. According to Dr. Andrews, “A study of SmartPak’s CBD ingredient in horses showed no negative changes in health or alertness, and no adverse events.”
