First legal pot shop for horses opens in Canada


First legal pot shop for horses opens in Canada

11 July 2019
Just nine months into legalizing cannabis across the country, the Canadian federal government has greenlit the first pot shop marketed specifically to horses and their owners.

The Grass Is Always Greener opened over the Canada Day long weekend in Caledon, Ont., a small city northwest of Toronto that is popular among equine enthusiasts. 

The shop’s owner, Bill ‘weed man’ Smith said that it just made sense to cater a cannabis shop to horses. “I’ve seen marijuana and CBD work wonders on horses with chronic pain and anxiety.”

His first weekend open, Smith reported he had already sold out of oat and apple pot cookies and an everyday bran-based formula he branded Heavenly Mash. Other hot sellers included a CBD oil for coating bits and a cannabis-infused rub for stiff muscles and joints.
