Howdy! In this article we are going to respond to the significant and continuing interest regarding breeding and the safety of cannabinoid products. I want to be very clear that I will only be discussing this topic from the perspective of our own products and observations made during case studies and use. I cannot comment on the safety of other industry wide products due to regulation variances and significant differences from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Products that have been specifically used during pre-pregnancy, breeding, gestation, foaling and post pregnancy are our Full Spectrum additive that has a mix of multiple cannabinoids. These include the following two items:
- CBG, CBD and CBC with THC content at .01%.
- 3000mg tincture oil including CBD and CBG with .29% THC content.
Both products are federally legal and can be transported from state to state. Initial observations and data collected show no negative effects to the mare or the foal, indicating that they are safe in assisting the wellness of both the mare and the foal.
Our Full Spectrum Additive is being used as a total health and wellness product to assist in the overall balance and health for the mare during her pregnancy cycle. This includes use during gestation, foaling, and weaning. Additionally, one of the mares in our study was in such positive condition she was bred again, conceived and is now carrying and weaning while still on the Full Spectrum product.
Susan Dickinson with Cork-N-Mane in Kentucky reported, “The results are beyond expectations. We had a very malnourished 9 month pregnant mare come to us that was saved with this product. We saw a significant difference in total health as evidenced by skin coat, weight gain and hoof quality. Additionally, the foal is thriving and had no diarrhea at ten days! Truly Amazing!”
Tincture products are currently being used by breeders in Texas to assist in foaling to manage pain, comfort and recovery for the mare. No negative side effects have been observed to the mare or foal. Use has assisted in the recovery from foaling when the mare was not able to get back to her feet to being able to stand and begin weaning for the foal.
This is a new and yet to be scientifically studied area, but initial indications are showing that these products are very important to assist in the health and well-being of the mare and foal during the breeding cycle. We will continue to work with case studies and hope to start a formal breeding study with a major stallion breeding operation in the coming year.
