Tampa, FL (November 4, 2020) – Global Widget™, the manufacturer and distributor of premium CBD products from Hemp Bombs®, Nature’s Script™ and Perfect Paws Hemp™ for pets, announced today the donation of over $1 million worth of CBD pet products to local shelters to help dogs and cats acclimate and stay calm, improving their chances of adoption.

The company, which rebranded its CBD pet division earlier this year, has already donated more than $200,000 worth of CBD tincture oils, CBD dog chews and CBD pet shampoo to two Tampa Bay area shelters — the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, one of the area’s oldest and largest companion animal shelters, and Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

On Nov. 18, 2020, Global Widget will hold its “Million Dollar CBD Pet Product Giveaway” allowing area shelters to drive by its headquarters and pick up pre-boxed CBD products for use at its shelters. Representatives from any licensed Tampa Bay area shelter are welcome but will but need to RSVP.

“Our CBD pet products have found the perfect home in our Bay-area animal shelters because of its ability to help calm pets in new environments or high-anxiety situations,” said Kevin Collins, Global Widget Co-CEO.

Glen Hatchell, CPDT-KA, Behavior and Enrichment Manager at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, said, “A lot of animals struggle with this environment at first. So I’m always looking for new ways we can safely help them remain calm until they can see that this is a good place for them. If I can help them remain calm, it helps them get adopted more quickly.”

“We’ve had great success with it,” said Scott Daly, executive director of Pet Pal Animal Shelter. “I usually give it to our dogs when they first come in. It can be a stressful environment.”

Perfect Paws Hemp produces CBD pet products such as tincture oils, dog chews, 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner and paw butter for dogs, as well as an oil especially for cats. All animals have endocannabinoid systems which function the same way as in humans. CBD, the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp, has been observed to work within that system to help promote calmness and relaxation.

Research conducted by BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research projects the pet CBD market to grow 5% faster than the overall CBD market over the next four years.
