SAN DIEGO, Aug. 26, 2019 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (“the Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary HempMeds® has released its Hemp for Pets pet cannabidiol (CBD) product line in celebration of National Dog Day.
Hemp for Pets by HempMeds® was created to help improve the lives of all pets, from nose to tail. The Company, a proud member of the National Pet Supplement Council (NPSC), aims to improve the lives of pets and people naturally with a commitment to ethically-sourced hemp CBD extract and natural ingredients, dedicated scientific expertise and innovation backed by the strictest efficacy testing.
“We don’t just want to create great products, we want to do great work. National Dog Day isn’t just a great opportunity to celebrate the dogs who have become a part of our family, but also recognize the many dogs who are currently in need of homes or care. There are so many pet parents, rescues and shelters that HempMeds can now aid by providing them with the CBD products they need to help improve the wellness of their pets,” said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. “This is very near to my heart and I am looking forward to spearheading this initiative through our Animals in Need Program.”
According to Nielsen analysts, the U.S. pet food and treats market in 2018 reached nearly $33 billion across various retail channels, including local pet stores, vet clinics, e-commerce and more. Compared to 2017 sales, this represents a five percent, or $1.5 billion, increase. The Brightfield Group recently reported that the U.S. CBD pet product market was worth $32 million in 2018 and is estimated to grow to at least $1.16 billion by 2022.
The Hemp for Pets line features an array of CBD-infused products such as:
- Hemp Oil Applicators: Available in both three and 10-gram quantities, these minimally-processed, easy-to-measure oral applicators make it easy for you to give your pets CBD orally or mix it into their food. Ideal for small dogs or cats, they contain 500 milligrams and 1,700 milligrams respectively.
- Hemp Oil Tinctures: This CBD tincture gives customers a clear picture of what HempMeds® has been known for since the Company started selling CBD products in 2012. These tinctures, which are available in one- and two-gram bottles, contain 100 or 500 milligrams of full-spectrum CBD extract combined with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) derived from sustainably-sourced organic coconut oil.
- Hemp Oil – Clear Tinctures: These one and four-ounce tinctures contain either 500 or 1,000 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD that is processed through supercritical extraction to remove plant materials, lipids, waxes and THC. It is great for smaller cats and dogs and horses who might find any percentage of THC to be toxic.
- Hemp Oil Itch and Hot Spot Balm: Just like human skin, pet skin requires care and maintenance, too. Give your pet the skincare they need with this beeswax, ginger root and hemp oil rich balm that has 50 milligrams of CBD in each container. It also comes in a travel size.
“There are many studies providing evidence that CBD has a variety of wellness benefits for pets including improved cardiovascular function, neurological health and behavior, healthy joints and hips, and healthy skin and coats,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Our pet-focused products are made with the Company’s Triple Lab Tested™ full-spectrum hemp oil and THC-free isolate to offer pets the same high quality that we’ve been providing to humans for many years.”
