CBD provider for pets hire a general counsel

ElleVet Sciences, based in Portland, Maine, and the first company to prove the safety and efficacy of its hemp-based CBD for pets, has hired animal health expert Stacey Evans as its general counsel.

Evans holds a JD from Tulane Law Schoo. She served as a federal attorney, legislative counsel and ethics official. She is also a former member of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary’s Advisory Committee.

Among her numerous experiences in the animal health field, Evans chaired the Animal Law Committee of the American Bar Association. She works collaboratively with various animal health organizations and veterinarians to educate about the potential use of CBD-based products in the veterinary field.

“It is an honor to join such a rapidly growing company and industry,” says Evans. “There is an abundance of legal misconceptions surrounding CBD in the animal health field, and I am eager to help clear these misconceptions up. I feel as though my entire career has been leading me to this exciting opportunity at ElleVet.”
