“True Leaf is leading the way in introducing European pet owners to the benefits of legal and safe hemp pet solutions,” said CEO Darcy Bomford. “European expansion is a major growth opportunity for us and we are pleased to be partnering with established companies in the EU who share the same stringent standards for delivering superior pet products.”

Bomford also said OSCAR and Pocurull are natural additions to True Leaf’s growing retail distribution network in Europe, which includes Arcaplanet, a leading pet-retail chain in Italy, Pets Corner in the UK and Das Futterhaus in Germany.

True Leaf Pet, a division of True Leaf Brands, has pioneered a line of hemp-based chews, supplement oils, and dental sticks for dogs designed to reduce joint pain, boost immunity and alleviate anxiety. In Europe, the company also offers a line of hemp-based treats specially formulated to address issues unique to cats, including anti-hairball and urinary tract support.

The vast majority of CBD, or cannabidiol, is extracted from hemp, which is a cannabis plant that has trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less when dried). THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive compound that gets people “high.”
