The cannabis company, with the largest market cap and Stewart’s company Sequential Brands Group Inc (NASDAQ:SQBG) said she will apply her knowledge of consumer products while exploring the effectiveness of CBD and other cannabinoids for humans and pets.

"I am delighted to establish this partnership with Canopy Growth and share with them the knowledge I have gained after years of experience in the subject of living," Stewart said in a statement. "I'm especially looking forward to our first collaboration together, which will offer sensible products for people's beloved pets."

Canopy Growth said it has developed diverse product offerings specific to hemp-derived CBD and looks forward to working closely with Stewart as they further develop and introduce these products to market in the future.

CBD is a non-psychoactive component of marijuana.

Earlier this month, Canopy Growth said it had signed a multiyear deal with convenience store operator Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc (TSE:ATD) for the retail sale of its Tweed line of cannabis products in a store solely dedicated to the brand.

Sequential Brands owns, promotes, markets and licenses a portfolio of consumer brands in the fashion, active and home categories and includes Stewart’s media and merchandising properties
