About Us

A Diverse Leadership Team

We believe in healthier alternatives for horse medicine. Traditional equine pharmaceutical products are often overprescribed and can lead to negative side effects. Cannahorse provides horses and their owners with the scientifically-proven, plant-based medicine they’ve been searching for.

Founded by a team of equine professionals with unique experience in cannabis and animal pharmaceuticals, the safety and quality of CannaHorse products is of the utmost importance. As more jurisdictions allow veterinarians access to cannabis and hemp-derived health products, vets and horse owners are seeking quality, scientifically-proven products. Our products are formulated with medical-grade hemp, and are organic and vegan. 

CannaHorse products are developed with the following principles in mind:

Research-driven product formulations

Research and development

Pharmaceutical grade ingredients

Reliable, consistent, and precise dosing
