Phyto Animal Health, a subsidiary of Medical Marijuana, Inc., the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, has a new cannabidiol (CBD) pet product: Phyto Animal Health HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts.
Featuring natural bacon and apple ingredients, the HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts artisanal baked pet treats are infused with four milligrams of CBD per chew to promote overall wellness for pets. The new all-natural supplement is intended for daily use to help cardiovascular function, support healthy joints, and promote neurological health and emotional behavior.
“We worked closely with Phyto Animal Health’s veterinary advisory board and CBD experts to formulate the newest addition to our product line. Our HempBone Bacon Apple Donuts are the perfect nutritional supplement to add to your pet’s balanced diet,” Phyto Animal Health CEO Ian Quinn said. “Pet owners now have an all-natural supplement option that is beneficial for the wellbeing of their beloved dogs and cats.”
“The most fascinating thing about cannabidiol (CBD) is its many diverse uses, for both humans and animals,” Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus said. “Similar to humans, pets have an endocannabinoid system that seems responsible for maintaining homeostasis within the body.”
Phyto Animal Health offers a line of CBD hemp oil supplements and hemp products targeted to cats, dogs and horses. CBD hemp oil has been researched by top veterinarians for cardiovascular, orthopedic and mental animal health. These products offer an abundant number of terpenes, essential fatty acids and other cannabinoids found naturally in hemp.
“As a firm believer in evidence-based medicine and after extensive review of the scientific literature with personal experience in my own pet, it is my opinion that phytocannabinoids found in the cannabis plant offer a more natural approach to maintaining a more balanced and healthy quality of life in the face of disease and age related changes,” said Phyto Animal Health Advisory Board Member Stephen Cital, RVT, SRA, RLAT, VTS-Lab Animal.
