Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s newest portfolio company adds pure hemp oil product to its pet health brand.
Phyto Animal Health officially launched its pet health brand late last month with a pair of CBD oil products developed exclusively for pets.
With nearly $70 billion spent on pets each year in the United States, and the booming popularity of CBD health and wellness supplements, Phyto Animal Health has potential to make a significant impact on the pet health industry with its CBD oil products.
“The beauty of CBD is its myriad of uses and its huge margin of safety, making it a great adjunct to veterinarian-prescribed treatment regiments,” said Liz Hughston, MEd., RVT, CVT, VTS (SAIM, ECC), executive member of the Phyto Animal Health Expert Veterinary Advisory Board.
The company is adding a high potency new product to its line to better assist veterinary professionals in their treatment of pets.
Concentrated New CBD Product
Phyto Animal Health’s Vitality™ 1700 mg CBD Oral Concentrate is the newest product in the company’s CBD-based product line. Phyto Animal Health has specially formulated its Vitality™ 1700 mg CBD Oral Concentrate as an all-natural pain management supplement that will only be available to veterinary clinicians and animal hospitals.
“We understand the concern that many veterinary clinicians have about the lack of analgesic options for their patients. That is why we worked diligently with our Expert Veterinary Advisory Board to formulate this special cannabidiol-rich concentrate,” said CEO of Phyto Animal Health Ian Quinn. “Veterinarians can now offer a more natural approach to pain management and healthy quality of life without the use of powerful opioid-based drugs.”
Each Vitality™ CBD Oral Concentrate tube contains a total of 1700 mg of decarboxylated CBD in its unfiltered oil, retaining the raw hemp’s nutritional value while maximizing CBD content. As Phyto Animal Health’s most potent CBD product, it is intended for use by knowledgeable veterinary staff.
A full-spectrum hemp oil product, Vitality™ CBD Oral Concentrate is naturally abundant in CBD, as well as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, terpenes, and other trace cannabinoids, allowing the active compounds in the hemp oil to interact with the body just as in the natural hemp plant.
All Phyto Animal Health products are created using hemp that has been grown free of herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. Its valuable oil is then extracted using non-toxic supercritical CO2. Despite these steps, Phyto Animal Health holds all its products to a strict Triple Lab Tested™ standard that examines its products at three points in the manufacturing process to ensure the integrity of all its products.
Existing Phyto Animal Health CBD Oil Products
Phyto Animal Health first entered the pet health market with a pair of CBD products in January of 2018. With a lower concentration of CBD per serving, these products are designed for home use by pet and livestock owners.
Pet Vitality™ is an all-natural CBD hemp oil product that combines decarboxylated hemp oil with medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil derived from organic coconut oil. Pet Vitality™ contains 100 mg of CBD in the 1 oz. bottle or 500 mg of CBD in the 2 oz. The Pet Vitality™ daily CBD oil supplement is best for use for cats and dogs.
Similar to Pet Vitality™, THC-free Vitality-X™ combines CBD oil with MCT oil to create a daily use CBD supplement. Vitality-X™ is put through an extra filtration process to remove plant materials, waxes, and all but the smallest amounts of cannabinoids other than CBD. Each 4 oz. bottle of Vitality-X™ contains 1000 mg of CBD and can be used by cat, dog, and horse owners looking to avoid concerns over THC.
Launched Among Veterinary Professionals
Phyto Animal Health will launch its new Vitality™ 1700 mg CBD Oral Concentrate this weekend at the Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) Annual Conference.
The WVC Annual Conference, one of the largest and most influential gatherings of veterinary professionals in the world, will be Phyto Animal Health’s first industry event since launching its exclusive line of CBD oil products for pets and livestock.
Phyto Animal Health is scheduled to have a pair of its Veterinary Advisory Board members speaking at the event.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the Phyto Animal Health booth on the event’s expo floor where they can learn more about CBD for pets, meet the Phyto Animal Health team, and get answers to any questions they have about CBD and its uses in pet health.
