Denver, Colorado-based Mary's Pets on Thursday announced the availability of pet-care products made from American cannabidiol (CBD).

"More and more humans are benefitting from cannabinoid medicine. Shouldn't our furry companions also have access to natural relief?" said Nicole Smith, CEO, Mary's Pets, manufacturer of pet-care CBD supplements made from Colorado-grown hemp.

Smith is also CEO and owner of Mary's Nutritionals, a CBD supplement company using the same hemp-based cannabinoids for people, and Mary's Medicinals, a cannabis company best known for its transdermal patch.

"We've combined our award-winning research and development capabilities and experiences designing medical cannabis products for humans with the latest veterinary science to offer the first transdermal CBD product for our feline, canine and equine friends," Smith said.

The premier offering in the Mary's Pets line is Mary's CBD Gel, a clinically formulated, precisely dosed, transdermal lotion designed to relieve symptoms in mammals of all types.

"Everyone gets sick and feels pain, our pets included," said Noel Palmer, Ph.D., chief scientist, Mary's Pets. "For most animals, CBD can be effectively used as an anti-inflammatory agent, pain-relieving compound and anti-epileptic — just as with humans."

Mary's Pets Gel is enriched with hemp-derived CBD organically grown by Elite Botanicals in northern Colorado. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound that is reported to have anti-convulsive, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-rheumatoid arthritic and sedative properties.
