True Leaf Pet chew treats headed Down Under

A Vernon-based medical cannabis company’s products will soon be bound for New Zealand.

True Leaf Pet has reached an agreement with Christchurch’s Liberty Premium Pet Products, the country’s biggest pet store chain, to distribute its True Hemp-branded pet chews to Animates pet retail stores across the country.

While True Hemp is sold across North America, England and Germany, this is the first time the product will be sold in the Asia-Pacific region. Effective April 2017, True Hemp will be sold exclusively in all Animates stores throughout NZ, also via the Animates e-commerce website, and in Animates Vet care clinics.

“Liberty is proud to be representing True Hemp in New Zealand,” said Liberty’s managing partner Carl Rees. “With no other comparable hemp-based therapeutic dog products already on the market in New Zealand, we’re enthusiastic about the release of True Hemp and eager to see the response of dog owners to True Hemp.”
