Linton recently spoke with Benzinga about his interest in joining the booming pet market.

“I want to have high visibility and influence over how dog and other mammal research occurs,” he said. “I want to have the ability to look at where brands are being aggregated and brought together, because there's gonna be some big value in that.”

Better Choice CEO Damian Dalla-Longa said that "a core focus of our partnership will be developing a more comprehensive understanding of the benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids for animals in federally permissible ways."
