Opportunity: Use of cannabis in pet food

The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, passed in December 2018, took a significant step forward by separating hemp and hemp-derived CBD from marijuana-based products, thereby placing hemp-derived products under the control of the Department of Agriculture as a crop, rather than under the Justice Department as a controlled substance. The Farm Bill defines marijuana as cannabis with THC of 0.3% or greater (under the DEA), and hemp as cannabis with THC of less than 0.3%.

The use of cannabis in pet food treats has gained popularity, as the regulations have become less stringent. Cannabis-based pet food is available in concentrates, isolates, and synthetic forms. In cannabis-based food products, anxiety curing products are most useful to lower down anxiety. Additionally, pet owners are looking at CBD as an alternative to mitigate pain and allergies. Cannabis-based products were highly visible in the recent Global Pet Expo in Orlando (March 2019). Cannabis-based pet food is majorly sold through the Internet (via Amazon). Pet businesses have identified cannabis-based pet products as one of the growth areas of 2019.

The animal-based segment, by source, is projected to dominate the pet food ingreidnets market during the forecast period.

Animal-based ingredients are further segmented into meat & meat products, fats, proteins & amino acids, and others, which include flavoring agents and antioxidants. A majority of animal-based ingredients include meat & meat by-products, which provide essential protein, fatty acids, iron, and vitamins. Meat increases the palatability of the pet food, and hence, improves the digestion of pets. Fishbones are included in pet food, as they provide calcium and phosphorus. Key manufacturers are focusing on utilizing fish as animal derivatives in pet foods, as they are a rich source of vitamin A & D and omega-3. The benefits provided by omega-3 fatty acids for pets include improving the coat and skin health, regulating the immune system, improving the cognitive function in older pets, and lowering of the blood pressure.
