Rated 5 out of 5 by Ridingwfreckles from Thanks for slowing things down! We adopted a mustang 3 years ago, he has a strong one and done buck. He is 90% of the time an amazing pony! But this product seems to have given him a moment more to process things and soften that hard buck he can throw. We don’t show him. Literally saw results in the first week! My husband individually tested the product and it was exactly as it was labeled.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rowdy from The first winter I’ve had a sane horse in years I have a “behaviorally challenged” gelding who has some residual issues from a rough start in his life. Last winter, just pulling him out of the field for grooming was impossible and dangerous due to him rearing, biting, striking, and generally acting out. This winter, I decided to give CBD a go after hearing a rave review from a friend and fellow veterinary student. This product has helped his demeanor incredibly. He is not “fixed,” he’s always going to have some issues, but with being out of work for several months and a stressful move to a new barn AND winter weather, he has stayed sane and has been easy to handle. I’ll continue this product for the foreseeable future, and I would recommend it to anyone with a “challenging” horse that hasn’t seen improvement with training and environmental improvements.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindylou from Great product Worked well and horse ate it right up. Will definitely order again.
Rated 2 out of 5 by barnmouse from Didn’t work for my horse I wish it would have helped his anxieties but unfortunately it didn’t. I am going to finish the month supply I have here but will need to try a different product. I found it priced reasonable and my horse eat it out of my hand (I wanted to make sure nothing got spilled or lost). It just didn’t make any difference for him.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Morgan from Great product! This product worked so well for my horse! He’s always a weird one but it really took the edge off and helps with some swelling from an injury we’ve been working on. He’s a pretty picky eater and actually loves this all by itself so I am super impressed! I would fully recommend this to someone looking to put CBD in their horse’s diet but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. My horse’s body worker had seen him after a month and we blown away by how healthy and happy is skin and hair looked. The alternatives out there have not found a way to get it at the cost and be effective
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bolero from Life Changer for my horse I started my horse with PTSD from an accident in 2014 on CBD a few months ago. It’s been a life changer for this horse. You have to be patient and diligent because it takes a few months before seeing the full benefit. My horse hasn’t been ridden in 7 years. He is now 15 and I started riding him again. I rode him with the wind blowing willow tree limbs and he wasn’t reactive. Normally he would spook the buck and run away. I am thankful for giving my horse peace and relieve his anxiety. Thank you
Rated 2 out of 5 by ParisR from Did not notice a difference I switch my OTTB from smartcalm to smart and simple CBD hoping that it would settle her anxious and spooky behavior. She’s been checked by the vet for hormonal issues and they didn’t find anything wrong. I did not notice any difference with the smart and simple CBD. I hand fed it to her for the last 2 months thinking maybe she was spilling it or another horse was getting it. It is pretty expensive for no results. I may try to put her back on smart calm.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MJ2021 from Terrible, cheap packaging The packaging on this product is horrible. Would not open after properly removing the top. Had to cut the entire top off with no way to reseal the bag. Whatever cost savings Smartpak is getting from the packaging vendor shouldn’t be worth customer frustration.
Rated 2 out of 5 by tonytheottb from Didn’t do much for me. I switched my OTTB onto this after having him on SmartCalm Ultra hoping for a bit of a stronger result with calming and focus. Unfortunately, it didn’t do anything for him & since he was off the SCU he was all over the place. He still ate all his grain, so it didn’t throw his taste off at all. I just didn’t get what I wanted out of it, but SmartPak immediately credited me for the 2 months he was on it, and I was able to put him back on SmartCalm! Great customer service.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jess from Helpful for nervous stall behavior I have a high energy saddlebred gelding on the mend from some hoof and back issues so I thought I’d give this a try to see if it helped to take the edge off of him during his work so he could return to work at an easy pace. I have noticed no difference at all in the horse’s attitude or behavior in the arena, HOWEVER, it has made a tremendous difference in his stall manners. Usually reactive to all noises and activity from construction and neighbors, while on this pellet he keeps his ‘head on straight’ in his stall and for grooming. Unfortunate it hasn’t been effective for work time anxiety or energy, but, atleast it helps with something!

FAQ’s about giving horses CBD products:
What is the easiest way to give horses CBD products?
Our horse CBD hemp extract paste is the first horse-friendly product on the market. We found it challenging to keep CBD oil in the horse’s mouth long enough for absorption to take place in our initial trials. VetCS CBD horse paste is the most effective when given before meals (no food in the mouth) and is intended to stay in the horse’s oral cavity to be absorbed. Giving our paste to horses is just like any other paste medication-it is a dial a dose syringe for easy administration. Our CBD pellets and powderscan be mixed with grain, making it an easy addition to your horse’s daily routine.
How do I choose the right CBD product for my horse?
We offer free phone consultations from our veterinary team, and we would love to assist you with a product selection. Please contact us for a consultation.
VetCS CBD Horse Paste is a full spectrum product for acute or chronic, more advanced, or painful conditions. The paste allows us to utilize higher dosing ranges for loading dose periods while still being able to only use ¼ tube for the daily maintenance 125mg dosing range.
VetCS CBD Horse Powder is a cost-effective addition to daily grain that works very well for mild-moderate arthritis and mobility issues, generalized daily anxiety, immune support, and overall wellness.
VetCS CBD Horse Pellets offer joint and soft tissue support ingredients alongside 125mg CBD in each packet. This robust profile is great for horses needing protection for their joints, tendons, and ligaments.
Is CBD safe to give my horse during shows?
While CBD and hemp extracts are nutraceuticals and completely natural, most horse show organizations (USEF, FEI, etc.), have added ALL cannabinoids (CBD, THC, etc.) to their list of restricted supplements. If you normally use hemp-based products, we recommend a withdrawal time of 7 before any recognized competition based on our in-house pharmacokinetics testing.
