CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- October is here, which means cooler temperatures, gorgeous fall foliage, and Halloween. And thanks again to cbdMD and its Paw CBD brand, it's also time to pay special attention to our furry family members' health and wellness.
cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD, YCBD PR A), one of the nation's leading and most highly trusted and recognized cannabidiol (CBD) brands, is reminding dog and cat owners nationwide that October is National Pet CBD Month, a calendar holiday founded by Paw CBD in 2019. Paw CBD, the pet-friendly brand powered by cbdMD, is a hemp-derived, veterinarian-formulated pet product line, featuring a variety of chewables, treats, and tinctures that are convenient for daily use for dogs and cats, available in varying strengths and formulas.
Paw CBD founded National Pet CBD Month with a mission to educate the public on the many benefits of CBD and to promote CBD as a wellness option for dogs and cats. As more and more people look to CBD to support a healthier lifestyle, many also want to provide those same benefits to their pets and are looking for new ways to help their furry friends put their best paw forward. Despite ongoing research on CBD and an increasing number of promising studies and testimonies from around the world, there remains a lack of awareness on CBD and its beneficial properties for pets, leaving many questions on the minds of everyday pet owners when it comes to considering CBD for their beloved friends to support their comfort and care. With this in mind, National Pet CBD Month was created to bring awareness, education, and answers to those who seek a more balanced approach to everyday pet wellness.
In honor of 2020 National Pet CBD Month, Paw CBD will launch #cbdhowloween, its first-ever Howl-o-Ween Costume Contest, inviting participating pet owners to capture and share photo submissions of their pets dressed in costume. Running from October 1 through October 29, #cbdhowloween will be hosted online via Instagram and will award weekly winners with $100 prize packs before crowning a grand prize winner on October 31 with the ultimate reward: A one year's supply of Paw CBD Soft Chews for Dogs or Soft Chews for Cats (approximate retail value: $500).
In addition to #cbdhowloween, Paw CBD is celebrating National Pet CBD Month by offering customer promotions all month long. From October 1 through October 31, customers may use promo code PETCBD for 20% off all purchases at cbdMD.com and PawCBD.com, with Paw CBD also planning to roll out special product discounts, coupons, and other promotional offers throughout the month of October.
"Pets are family, too – and we want them to live happy, healthy lives," said Ken Cohn, Chief Marketing Officer of cbdMD. "At Paw CBD, everything we do is focused on providing the very best for our best friends. And that's precisely why all Paw CBD products are formulated with the same non-THC, safety-tested CBD used in cbdMD's premium, high-quality products for humans."
National Pet CBD Month is part of a long list of other cbdMD-founded national calendar days and months, including National CBD Day (August 8), National Hemp Day (February 4), National Hemp Month (July), and National CBD Month (January).
