CBD maker signs deal with MLB

MLB’s decision to adopt the SPORT lineup of CBD products from Charlotte’s Web Holdings (TSX:CWEB,OTCQX:CWBHF) represents another major cornerstone for the visibility of CBD items.

In a statement, Noah Garden, chief revenue officer with MLB, said the company’s products have met the “highest safety standards,” which means they can be promoted across league channels.

“We are excited about the possibilities this partnership offers as CBD becomes a more widely adopted part of the health and wellness regimen of our players and fans,” Garden added.

This will be a multi-year partnership between the two organizations. Charlotte’s Web will receive premier brand presence at all major MLB events, including All-Star Week festivities, the postseason tournament and the World Series.

Shares of Charlotte’s Web jumped over 20 percent in Toronto on Wednesday (October 12) and finished the day at C$0.99.
