Cannabis wellness products across the globe are gaining huge popularity and traction in terms of their effective use in ensuring physical and mental well-being for pets and humans alike. Various research studies from the past have shown that cannabinoids (compounds that are found in cannabis) seamlessly interact along with endocannabinoid receptors within our pets’ (mammals’) nervous systems, and thereby can improve their health and well-being significantly and help them in managing various types of disorders/health issues.
In view of the above, South Delhi based cannabis wellness startup Awshad has now ventured into the pet care segment with the launch of its latest product first of its kind in the Indian market – Awshad Full Spectrum Vijaya Oil for Pets – which combines the best principles of Ayurveda with intensive lab research to provide solutions for ailments that pets endure with age and other severe illnesses. Given that pets age much faster than humans, and many older pets often suffer from ailments such as arthritis, anxiety, stress, digestive issues, chronic pain and cancer, this product developed by Awhad will be instrumental in relieving the pets’ sufferings from these ailments, and hence enable even the pet parent(s) to feel relieved.
Awshad’s Full Spectrum Vijaya Oil, which can be bought (and consumed orally by a pet or mixed in their food) with a Doctor’s prescription, is now available as a 30ml, 300mg tincture on Awshad’s website (www.awshad.com), as well as on aggregator websites like CBD Store, Itshemp and more. Additionally, the product will also be available via select vets in all major cities of India. Notably, all the products of Awshad are developed are licensed under the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India, and are tested and certified at labs in Florida, USA – thereby having COA (certificate of analysis), which is accessible on Awshad’s website in a bid to maintain complete transparency with its consumers.
Speaking on the launch, Shivam Singhee, Co-Founder & CEO, Awshad says, “We are glad to launch Awshad’s wellness product for pets, which is focused majorly on dogs and cats and other small to medium-size animals that live in our homes. As this product is prescription based, a pet parent willing to buy the product can get in touch with their vet directly, or via our website where we have Doctors on-boarded for setting up consultations for our customers’ convenience. Awshad, as a brand that is committed to the welfare of all, has taken upon itself the responsibility to cater to the needs of our pets and give them their best life by providing them a scientifically-proven cure in the form of Vijaya Oil which contains CBD and other active ingredients to the many unsaid problems that the pets may suffer from. We are confident we will be able to make our customers and their furry friends happy and disease-free with our intervention based on the wonders of cannabis wellness.”
Richa Jaggi, Co-founder & CMO, Awshad – who was the chief architect behind the introduction of Awshad’s pet care product – derived her inspiration of working on the same after she lost her pet dog Champ to cancer (perennial tumor) in November 2019. Sharing her story, Richa Jaggi says, “Seeing Champ suffer from immense pain broke my heart. I was informed that CBD would help him largely by lessening the unbearable pain. But I could not source good quality CBD in India and hence procured some from Amsterdam, but it was too late by then. The day I lost Champ, I made a promise to myself and him that I will produce high quality cannabis-extract oil for pets in India; and now after two years of research and hard work, we at Awshad have been finally able to fulfill the promise with the launch of our Full-Spectrum Vijaya Oil for pets. Hence, this product is an ode in the loving memory of Champ, and will go a long way in ensuring that no other pet parent goes through the ordeal that I personally went through.”
The Full Spectrum Vijaya Oil for Pets by Awshad consists of cannabis sativa leaf extract, which through scientific research has been proven helpful for ailments that our pets endure with age and severe illnesses. This oil will help the pets to get relief from common everyday problems that they suffer from. For instance, long car journeys and firecrackers’ bursting during festivals can lead to anxiety in our pets, about which they cannot communicate directly to the parent or caregiver. A prescribed dosage of the Full Spectrum Vijaya Oil can help them feel relieved and at ease, and keep anxiety at bay over the long term. Also, severe cases of epilepsy, cancer, and arthritis in pets can be managed with this oil which possesses best-in-class therapeutic and healing properties. In the future, Awshad will continue innovating and producing more such cannabis wellness products that are ailment-focused, effective and affordable.
