CBD is an important active ingredient in marijuana, unlike the THC it is not psychoactive. This means the CBD will not cause a high. Cannabis-base products are now more and more popular in the medical industry. For example, CBD oil with high-level pure cannabidiol that normally extracted from hemp plants.

CBD is illegal in the federal government and considers as ban as marijuana, however, this prohibition is generally not enforced. Hence CBD oil with specific standards could purchase legally, especially for people who have trouble in anxiety and insomnia.

According to the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

However, the CBD also used on horse racing.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) wrote in April 14th ruling that Calhoun who used CBD on a horse, however, would only have to serve ten days from April 14th to 23rd.

For other dispositions, “on the condition that no Class A or Class B medication violation occurs in any racing jurisdiction within 365 days from the date of this ruling,” expressed by the KHRC

According to the ruling, Calhoun waived his right to hold a formal hearing in front of the Ellis Board of Management.

In December 2018, the KHRC established a classification standard for CBD. Dr. Mary Scollay, the equine medical director of KHRC told the Lexington Herald-Leader that, “It’s a prohibited substance. There’s no scientific evidence for use in horses” even though internet sites are “aggressively marketing it” for equine use.
