SIGN UP Email* Horse Sport Enews Dawn Ianson, a Canadian student living on Vancouver Island who is doing her Masters out of the University of Edinburgh, invites horse owners to take part in a survey about cannabinoids (CBDs) in relation to use in their horses.“Vets cannot prescribe cannabinoids [the non-psychoactive derivative of the Cannabis plant] and they are being used and marketed throughout the country with limited scientific evidence of their effectiveness,” notes Ianson. “The Canadian Government still has them listed as a schedule 2 controlled substance, making research very difficult. There needs to be a greater awareness on the limitation and the current equine-related studies.”The study, entitled Cannabidiol (CBD) Use Amongst Horse Owners in Canada has been approved by the Human Ethics Research Committee, R(D)SVS, University of Edinburgh. Dr. McBride is a professor at the Aberystwyth University and supervisor of MSc Graduate student Dawn Ianson at the University of Edinburgh The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. Together they are trying to understand the prevalence of, and outcome satisfaction of, CBD use in the Canadian equine community and to understand if it is being used as a primary or alternate therapeutic option for either physiological or psychological conditions in horses.All horse owners who live in Canada who are 18 years or older are invited to take part. You will be asked to complete a series of questions as honestly as possible and there are no ‘right or wrong’ answers. The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed HERE.(Link to French language version HERE) Tags: CBD, University of Edinburgh, cannabinoids, More from News:MARS Bromont CCI Announces Requirements For US-Based RidersThe first set of requirements to allow American athletes and support teams to enter Canada for the June 2-6 competition have been released.Canadian Eventer Jessica Phoenix Reaches the 100 CCI4*-S MarkPhoenix achieved the milestone while riding Pavarotti at the inaugural 2021 CCI4*-S at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event.Tribunal Satisfied That Kocher Made Prolonged Use of Electric SpursAs well as horse abuse, the US rider is found to have brought the sport into disrepute and committed criminal acts under Swiss law.Washington International Horse Show Returns to TryonTIEC will again provide the venue for the WIHS Oct. 26-31 with a full schedule of hunter, jumper and equitation classes.last_img read more
