Makers of Absorbine® horse care products introduce all new Veterinary Liniment CBD Gel from Hemp Oil

East Longmeadow, Mass. (May 5, 2020) – For more than 125 years, horse owners have relied on Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment to help soothe and relieve their horses’ fatigued muscles, stiff joints and arthritis pain. That liniment has gotten even more effective with the addition of cannabidiol (CBD) from hemp oil.

“We are excited to continue supporting horsemen and women around the country with the expansion of our line of liniments to help ease discomfort and provide temporary relief from pain in their horses,” says Amy Cairy, director of marketing for Absorbine. “Our original formulas are still highly effective, but the addition of CBD from hemp oil is giving horse owners even more options to keep their horses comfortable.”

The new formulations use the traditional Absorbine Veterinary Liniment as a base, with Extra Strength formula including 50 mg of CBD from hemp oil and Ultimate Strength formula adding 500 mg of CBD from hemp oil. The CBD used in these two new products is the now legal version of CBD, which was removed from the federal controlled substance list in Decemeber 2018. Both of these liniments are free of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects). The CBD is premium quality and has been laboratory tested to assure it is free of THC and other impurities.

Both Extra Strength and Ultimate Strength offer:

  • Instant relief
  • High-potency CBD
  • Premium quality
  • Spearmint scent
  • Menthol that loosens stiff joints and reduces swelling
  • Convenient gel form for easy topically-targeted application
  • No known side effects

“Absorbine Veterinary Liniment has been trusted by equestrians for more than 125 years, and we look forward to continuing to help relieve horses of aches, pains and discomfort associated with arthritis,” Cairy says. “We’ve been dedicated to horse care since 1892, and this is such a great addition to our line of products.”

The new Veterinary Liniments with CBD from Hemp Oil can be purchased  at and shipped nationwide.
