Pet product business The Cannabis Co. unveiled a new cannabis-infused pet product range, CannaCo Pet, during the Dog Lovers Show in Melbourne.
The Cannabis Company last year launched a cannabis gin, The Myrcene Hemp Gin.
“It’s an incredibly exciting time for the industry, and with CannaCo Pet we’ve created Australia’s first dedicated cannabis brand for animals,” The Cannabis Co. chief executive Dr. David Stapleton said.
“The Cannabis Co. has seen incredible growth, with sales going through the roof and projections continually exceeded. Over 200 testimonials have been left on our website by delighted customers whose animal companions have benefited from products such as Hemp Seed Oil For Pets, Hemp Seed & Flax Oil and Hemp Dog Biscuits, and it became increasingly clear that animal owners had a need for more functional hemp health products.
“That’s why we teamed up with leading lights from Australia’s veterinary industry to further explore the potential of this wonderfully versatile plant.”
Dr. Stapleton worked with Dr Tim Adams and Dr Peter Brunskill to work on the new dog cannabis product. The veterinarians created a new pet range to improve animal well-being.
“The more I read about cannabis and the more I hear the incredible testimonials from our customers, the more I’m convinced that we’re only just at the beginning of a wonderful journey in developing ethical, effective and new ways of keeping animals healthy and happy, with products all derived from this one amazing plant,” stated Dr Adams.
“It is so rewarding to see our products have real benefits for so many of our furry family members. It has inspired us to come up with a host of ideas for products that we are confident will make some amazing differences to our pets’ lives into the future.”
Dr Brunskill wants to help pets alleviate pain and inflammation through hemp products, and is currently conducting trials with vet hospitals to showcase the myriad of animal problems that CannaCo Pet products can treat.
CannaCo Pet launches with three new natural pet care products that promotes sustainability – created using hemp plant with cannabis terpenes and other natural ingredients. The Rex is a dog shampoo with hemp, the Maisie is a dog shampoo with hemp for sensitive skin, and the George is a dog conditioner with hemp.
