DENVER , May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Pet parents seeking trustworthy hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) solutions for their dogs and cats can now find leading hemp extract brand, Mary’s Tails, in select PetSmart stores throughout the country. Mary’s Tails, part of the Mary’s Brands (“Mary’s”) portfolio, is the first hemp extract brand to be sold at PetSmart and was selected due to its focus on transparency, quality, efficacy and pet-friendly delivery methods.

Mary’s, a leading manufacturer of full spectrum hemp extract with naturally occurring CBD-infused products for both humans and pets, was among the first to introduce hemp-infused pet products to the market in 2016 and continues to innovate at the intersection of horticulture and modern technology. Formulated for dogs and cats, Mary’s Tails’ products can help keep pets happy, healthy and calm.

Mary’s Tails’ suite of six customizable CBD pet solutions will initially be carried in 122 PetSmart stores throughout Colorado , Oregon , Indiana , Kentucky and Tennessee , with plans to expand to additional stores across the country by summer 2020. “Our exciting partnership with PetSmart makes the Mary’s Tails product suite even more accessible to pet parents, allowing them to provide their dogs and cats with the daily wellness benefits of hemp-derived CBD,” said Luke Mullins , VP of Pet Sales at Mary’s Brands.

“PetSmart continues to build a world class shopping experience through merchandising, product selection, and service.

All Mary’s Tails products feature clear communication on packaging and undergo internal and external lab testing with results made public for all to see. Products are tested to confirm they are free of pesticides, heavy metals, microbials and solvents. The hemp extract used in Mary’s Tails is sourced from partner farms, ensuring quality from seed to shelf.

PetSmart to Begin Carrying CBD Products for Pets

According to a 2016 survey from the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, out of 631 respondents, 371 indicated they were using a hemp product for their dog. That was before the 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the grasp of the Controlled Substances Act…

While major retailers like Sephora and Neiman Marcus were quick to embrace CBD-infused products for humans on the heels of the Farm Bill, the retail heavyweights like Petco and PetSmart that are focused on our furry friends took things a bit slower.

Petco

Long after independently owned pet stores were stocking their shelves with CBD-infused products, Petco, with more than 1,500 locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico, was the first one of the big-P’s to begin carrying cannabidiol-infused pet products in-store in over 20 states and online.

From Charlotte’s Web canine CBD products to Pet Releaf’s CBD treats and chews, a search for “CBD” on the Petco website yields 47 results.

Now, as of today, it looks like PetSmart is going green too.

PetSmart

PetSmart is officially set to begin carrying Mary’s Tails, part of the Mary’s Brands portfolio, as its first ever CBD brand. Initially set to be carried in 122 PetSmart stores throughout Colorado, Oregon, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, there are already plans in the works to expand to additional stores across the country by summer 2020.

Slightly larger than Petco, with over 1,650 pet stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico as well as more than 200 in-store PetsHotel dog and cat boarding facilities, PetSmart is undoubtedly one of the largest sellers of pet products and services in the world.

According to the company’s announcement, PetSmart selected Mary’s Tails “due to its focus on transparency, quality, efficacy and pet-friendly delivery methods.” This is what’s necessary to combat the horror stories surrounding some of the many low quality CBD pet products on the market.

“PetSmart continues to build a world class shopping experience through merchandising, product selection, and service. We evaluated numerous CBD pet brands and selected Mary’s Tails to be the first CBD brand to be on shelf,” said Tim Milano , Vice President of Merchandising, PetSmart. “The addition of Mary’s Tails will answer the call from our consumers seeking options for a highly trusted hemp extract with naturally occurring CBD for pets.”

Conclusion

The two largest pet product retailers, Petco and PetSmart, are estimated to hold a combined 48% market share in the United States, with a whopping 37.7% attributable to PetSmart alone. With the CBD market expected to eclipse $23 billion USD in the near future, it comes as no surprise that these two pet product giants are eyeing it as the next big thing.

While retailers like Sephora and Ulta were quick to embrace CBD products for humans on the heels of the 2018 Farm Bill, PetSmart took things a bit slower.
