CBD pet market sees soaring sales
A December 2019 Nielsen study found pet owners are looking to CBD to help their four-legged companions with:
Back and joint pain.
Episodic and chronic anxiety.
General health and wellness.
Luke Mullins, vice president of sales at Mary’s Tails, told Hemp Industry Daily that the company is in 1,000 retailers nationally, with plans to double that by year’s end.
Mullins notes that Mary’s Tails is careful about how they describe their products to avoid the warning letters the FDA has sent to “unscrupulous operators” that make claims that are not scientifically proven.
“We believe that our tagline – keeping your pets happy, healthy and calm – is a great summation of our products’ benefits,” Mullins said, adding that they are mindful of the parameters federal agencies have set.
“So while we believe in the value and efficacy of all of our products, we are not permitted to speak to those concepts,” he said.
