Willie Nelson Launches CBD Products for Pets

Willie Nelson now has a CBD line for pets! 'Hemp for your furry family' is the brand's tagline. This wasn't a huge surprise since Nelson already has a CBD coffee line and we love everything that he embraces. Willie's Rescue is the name of the line and the new brand was announced at a pet trade show, SuperZoo.

A portion of sales will benefit animal rescue and adoption programs.

The charities that Willie's Rescue will be supporting at launch include five Nevada rescue organizations: Furgotten Friends Dog Rescue, PAWsitive Difference, Wagging Tails Rescue, Southern Nevada Beagle Rescue, and Best Chance. 

According to a press release issued Nelson is hoping all pets will benefit from CBD.

"As longtime animal advocates and pet owners, our family believes that the hemp plant has benefited our own animals," the Nelsons said in a statement. "We want you and your best friends to experience the potential benefits of hemp. That's why we created Willie's Rescue and are donating a portion of each sale to help find loving homes for animals in need."

We write a lot about Nelson and his support for animal welfare so we'll be researching this line for our dogs.

Vet experts are on board of course in the development of the new line.

"Development of this new product line for animals is supported by oversight and guidance from veteran experts in the pet care category, including Greg Forquer, Managing Partner at the consulting firm PetsPhD. Mr. Forquer brings nearly three decades of experience in the pet products industry to his role chairing the Willie's Rescue Advisory Board."
