Off late, cannabis wellness products across the globe have gained 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.
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,” he added.
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,” she added.
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.
