Story Date: 6/14/2019

There is much confusion as to whether or not CBD products for animals are legal. Please refer to the information below from the NC Department of Agriculture and from the FDA on the matter.

The NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services position states: 

No products containing CBD, which make medical claims for use in animals, are approved for sale in North Carolina.   

The FDA states: 

As of April 2019, hemp and hemp products may not be used in animal feed or pet food in the United States. The 2018 Farm Bill did not grant the right to use hemp and hemp products in food for humans or animals. The FDA has regulatory authority over food products.
