SAN DIEGO, March 1, 2018 — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, subsidiary Phyto Animal Health today announced that it will reveal its latest cannabidiol (CBD) pet product, Phyto Animal Health VITALITY 1700 mg CBD Oral Concentrate, at the WVC 90th Annual Conference at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on March 4-8. This new product will only be available to veterinary clinicians and animal hospitals.
“We’re excited to see the recent research and new products of our newest subsidiary Phyto Animal Health,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “Our family of companies’ presence at WVC with this new product shows that we will only continue to be innovators in the cannabis industry.”
The national opioid drug shortage is challenging both human and animal patient pain management. In the next few months, veterinary clinicians will be facing significant shortages of opioid medications, such as morphine, after the FDA’s 25 percent decrease in the production of Schedule II opioid medications in 2017. With another 20 percent proposed reduction in 2018, veterinarians may need to alter their normal pain management protocols with more natural alternatives.
Phyto Animal Health has specially formulated its VITALITY 1700 mg CBD Oral Concentrate as a natural health and wellness product that helps support recovery so pets can rest comfortably. Extracted using super critical CO2 and Triple Lab Tested®, this product is naturally abundant in CBD, as well as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, terpenes, and other trace cannabinoids. Each VITALITY CBD Oral Concentrate tube contains 1700 mg (17%) of decarboxylated CBD in its unfiltered oil, retaining the raw hemp’s nutritional value while maximizing CBD content.
“The beauty of CBD is its myriad of uses, including as a natural pain management assistant, and its huge margin of safety, making it a great adjunct to veterinarian-prescribed treatment regiments,” said Liz Hughston, MEd., RVT, CVT, VTS (SAIM, ECC), and an executive member of the Phyto Animal Health Expert Veterinary Advisory Board.
“We understand the concern that many veterinary clinicians have about the lack of analgesic options for their patients. That is why we worked diligently with our Expert Veterinary Advisory Board to formulate this special cannabidiol-rich concentrate,” said CEO of Phyto Animal Health Ian Quinn. “Veterinarians can now offer a natural approach to assist in improving pets’ quality of life and recovery without the use of powerful opioid-based drugs.”
