At Paw CBD, we believe that pets are family, too. They offer us love, comfort, companionship, and they make our lives better. So they deserve the very best care we can give them - Martin Sumichrast, co-CEO of cbdM

cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD, YCBD PR A) (the “Company”), one of the leading and most highly trusted and recognized cannabidiol (CBD) brands, announced today that its CBD pet product, Paw CBD Kidney Support Chews for Cats, has been selected as winner of the “Overall Cat Health Product of the Year” award in the 3rd Annual Pet Innovation Awards Program, the industry’s most robust recognition platform for the innovators and leaders of the pet industry. In 2020, Paw CBD’s CBD Calming Chews product was recognized with the “Dog Calming Product of the Year “award by Pet Independent Innovation Awards.

Paw CBD has created a cat-specific line and taken the promising benefits of CBD a step further to address one of the most common issues affecting a cats’ quality of life: kidney health. The company has taken their original Paw CBD Soft Chew and added the following ingredients to help support feline kidney health:

  • Astragalus which may help to lower blood pressure
  • Licorice Root which may help ease inflammation
  • Nettle which may increase water and salt expelled from the body

The Paw CBD Kidney Support Chew comes in a tasty salmon flavor that cats love, and the soft texture makes it ideal for finicky felines – especially older cats or those with sensitive teeth. The chews are available in two strengths, 150 mg and 300 mg, based on a cat's weight, for more precise serving options and optimal effectiveness.

“At Paw CBD, we believe that pets are family, too. They offer us love, comfort, companionship, and they make our lives better. So they deserve the very best care we can give them, which is why we are committed to providing premium hemp-derived options for the animals we share our lives with,” said Martin Sumichrast, co-CEO of cbdMD. “Knowing the many benefits of CBD, Paw CBD has created a product to support and enhance the health and wellbeing of our feline friends. We’re honored once again this year to be recognized by the Pet Innovation Awards.”

The mission of the annual Pet Innovation Awards Program is to honor innovation and recognize the excellence, hard work and success in a range of Pet Care industry categories, including Apparel, Grooming & Cleaning, Food & Treats, Health, Housing, Toys, Training, Retailers & Services and more. The 2021 Pet Innovation Awards attracted more than 1,250 nominations from around the world.

“While products in the growing pet CBD market are plentiful, cats are a neglected segment. Very few products are made specifically for them and their needs. Paw CBD offers both CBD oil tinctures and treats for our feline friends to help ensure a healthy and happy life,” says Travis Grant, Managing Director for Independent Innovation. “Congratulations to Paw CBD on winning our ‘Overall Cat Health Product of the Year’ award.”
