Charlotte’s Web, a Boulder, Colo.-based hemp extract brand, has partnered with Dr. Kwane Stewart, known to many as “The Street Vet” based on his history of compassionate activism providing pro bono health care to pets of the homeless.
The 22-year practicing veterinarian now serves as Charlotte’s Web’s official spokesperson for the company’s line of hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) pet products. Dr. Stewart has his own online reality TV series, also called “The Street Vet,” and has been a guest on “The Dr. Oz Show,” CNN and CBS News.
Charlotte’s Web was so moved by Stewart’s mission and animal welfare activism, it decided to support his cause, company officials said, adding that Charlotte’s Web has made a substantial contribution to Stewart’s 501c3 nonprofit organization to expand his outreach beyond California and fulfill his mission of pet care for all nationwide.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Charlotte’s Web and its amazing team of animal lovers,” Stewart said. “I’m passionate about educating pet owners about the ongoing CBD research that is showing promising results for better wellness and comfort. I want to also send a heartfelt thanks to Charlotte’s Web for its generous donation to my ongoing mission to help the pets of our homeless population. It will surely make a huge difference in the lives of the pets and their owners.”
Charlotte’s Web will collaborate with Stewart to educate pet owners and promote natural wellness and care, offering free educational programs as part of the company’s Searching for Answers series.

“The Street Vet’s years of veterinary experience and compassionate service to healing pets makes this doctor and activist an ideal ambassador for Charlotte’s Web’s pet products,” said Charlotte’s Web CEO Deanie Elsner.
Homeless pets often have limited access to medical checkups and vaccines, endure poor nutritional health and enhanced street noises, among other stressors, said company officials. Serving as Charlotte’s Web’s official pet vet ambassador, Stewart will utilize the company’s products to help homeless pets and educate veterinarians around the country about hemp-derived CBD products for pets.
