Vernon, British Columbia, CANADA

Debuts veterinary-developed, NASC-certified CBD supplements at SuperZoo for rapidly growing pet products category

VERNON, British Columbia, Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- True Leaf Brands Inc. (“True Leaf” or the “Company”) (CSE: MJ) (OTCQX: TRLFF) (FSE: TLA), a leading global cannabis and hemp wellness brand for pets, today announced the launch of its veterinarian-formulated, cannabidiol (CBD) supplements for dogs at SuperZoo 2019, North America’s premier pet industry trade show, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

True Leaf’s CBD product line will begin rolling out on September 30, 2019, to pet retail stores in several U.S. jurisdictions and the Company’s online store at True Leaf’s debut CBD products in the U.S. will display the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) Quality Seal – one of the highest-level certifications in the pet industry.

“We are excited to launch a NASC-certified CBD product line to complement our trusted and successful hemp seed-based pet supplements,” said Darcy Bomford, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of True Leaf. “With the True Leaf brand already in over 3,500 stores worldwide, we are well positioned to meet the growing U.S. demand for legal, safe and effective CBD pet products, which should generate significant incremental revenue for True Leaf.”

True Leaf’s new CBD-enhanced functional chews use non-GMO, pesticide-free, broad-spectrum hemp leaf with naturally occurring CBD, in addition to the unique combination of plant-based active ingredients in the brand’s original hemp seed-based pet supplement line.

The CBD formulations were developed by a team of industry veterans with 200+ years of collective natural pet products expertise, including the prominent integrative veterinarians of the True Leaf Veterinary Advisory Board.
