(OTC: MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, today announced that its subsidiary Phyto Animal Health will be exhibiting its products and speaking on a featured expert panel at CBD Expo West in Anaheim, CA on September 21-22.
CBD Expo West, hosted at the Marriott Anaheim, is the first and only show dedicated entirely to CBD. The event will feature more than 60 exhibitors, along with a large lineup of presentations and panel discussions featuring experts in the production, distribution and sale of CBD products. CBD Expo West will also showcase a Pet CBD pavilion, which will focus exclusively on pet products within the cannabidiol (CBD) industry.
During the event, Phyto Animal Health will be exhibiting its line of cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil supplements including tinctures, treats and concentrates for cats, dogs and horses. Additionally, Phyto Animal Health Chief Executive Officer Ian Quinn and Phyto Animal Health Veterinary Advisory Board Member Dr. Robert Klostermann will speak on the panel "My Dog Ate it: Vets, Pets, & CBD," which will cover the benefits of CBD for pets as well as the similarities and differences in how CBD affects the endogenous cannabinoid system of both dogs and humans.
"We are excited Phyto Animal Health is able to exhibit and speak at such a relevant event and raise awareness of the many therapeutic uses of CBD for pets that have been researched by top veterinarians," said Medical Marijuana, Inc.
