Unveiling the 10 yr. Journey of Canna Companion: From Inception to Empowering Pet Parents


In the ever-evolving landscape of pet wellness, one company stands out for its commitment to quality, sustainability, and pet-centric education: Canna Companion. Founded in 2014 by Drs. Sarah Brandon & Greg Copas, pioneers in veterinary medicine and co-authors of the pharmacology chapter in Cannabis Therapy in Veterinary Medicine, Canna Companion has carved a niche for itself in the realm of CBD-based pet products. As we celebrate the journey and 10 year anniversary, let’s delve into the key milestones that have shaped the company’s identity and its unwavering dedication to pets and their parents.

A Visionary Inception

Every success story has its humble beginnings, and Canna Companion is no exception. In March 2014, Dr. Sarah Brandon’s vision to integrate the benefits of CBD into veterinary medicine laid the foundation for what would become a trailblazing enterprise. In her heartfelt 5 year anniversary letter, she  reminisces about the challenges and triumphs that have marked the company’s growth. From navigating regulatory hurdles to pioneering research, Canna Companion’s journey is a testament to perseverance and passion.

Canna Companion wouldn’t be here today without pet parents and pets. The foundation of all Canna Companion products is based upon a living database of more than 10,000 pets. Decades of CBD research and consultations with pet parents helps the team understand how CBD works in pets better than anyone else. And the research is ongoing, pushing the envelope with how CBD works in exotics with universities like LSU


Setting the Standard: NASC Quality Seal

Quality assurance is paramount when it comes to pet supplements, and Canna Companion takes this responsibility seriously. The receipt of the NASC Quality Seal underscores the company’s commitment to transparency and product integrity. This prestigious seal signifies compliance with rigorous quality standards and reinforces trust among consumers and veterinarians alike. By prioritizing quality at every step of the production process, Canna Companion ensures that pets receive nothing but the best.

With over 105 years of combined veterinary professional experience, Canna Companion takes the making of pet supplements very seriously. Organic ingredients arrive and are tested for hazardous microbes and chemicals. Cleaning procedures are rigorous and use only natural food-safe products. Staff are heavily trained so they have a deep understanding of why SOPs are in place – and a desire to make the very best CBD products for pets. 


Nurturing Sustainability

In an era of environmental consciousness, sustainability has emerged as a defining value for businesses worldwide. Canna Companion recognizes the importance of minimizing its ecological footprint and has made significant strides towards sustainability. Whether it’s sourcing organic ingredients or implementing eco-friendly packaging solutions, the company is dedicated to fostering a greener future for pets and the planet. Canna Companion’s blog on sustainability with CBD illuminates their ongoing efforts and serves as an inspiration for eco-conscious pet parents.

Canna Companion sustainability efforts are built into the company culture. Progressive HR practices help employees manage their work-life balance which translates to happy people making organic CBD products in a clean and safe environment. Air quality monitors confirm harmful particulate matter counts well below EPA recommendations and humidity and temperature parameters are set to prevent microbial growth. Pet parents can rest assured that Canna Companion’s eco-friendly practices make CBD pet products sustainably and with great care. 



Empowering Pet Parents through Education

Educating pet parents is central to Canna Companion’s mission of promoting pet wellness. Understanding the nuances of CBD formulations can be daunting, but the company strives to demystify this complex subject through comprehensive educational resources. From informative blog posts to personalized consultations, Canna Companion equips pet parents with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their pets’ health. By fostering a culture of transparency and empowerment, the company transcends the role of a mere product provider and becomes a trusted ally in pet care.

An essential component of effective healthcare is understanding the need for CBD, administration of products, and anticipated outcomes or possible side effects. Canna Companion products go beyond CBD alone to enhance the well-being of dogs and cats, enabling them to thrive. Educating pet owners on the benefits of CBD and other compounds for their pets is a passion we enthusiastically embrace!


As we reflect on Canna Companion’s journey, one thing becomes abundantly clear: it’s not just a company; it’s a catalyst for positive change in the lives of pets and their parents. From its visionary inception to its unwavering commitment to quality, sustainability, and education, Canna Companion embodies the values that define excellence in the pet wellness industry. As they continue to innovate and inspire, one can’t help but feel hopeful about the future they’re shaping—one pet at a time.
