Charlotte’s Web announced it is now the official CBD of Major League Baseball, pioneering a new pro sports league category with natural CBD products to support recovery and overall wellness for both athletes and fans.
“As a leader in the CBD category with products that provide health and wellness benefits, Charlotte’s Web is a welcome addition to the MLB family representing a landmark partnership in baseball and sports,” said Noah Garden, MLB chief revenue officer.
Through the partnership, Charlotte’s Web will have a premiere brand presence at MLB’s Jewel Events, including All-Star Week, Postseason, and the World Series presented by Capital One through marketing, media, and ballpark activations that connect to the league’s fan base of over 180 million Americans.
The partnership celebrates the much-anticipated launch of Charlotte’s Web™ SPORT – Daily Edge, the first broad-spectrum hemp-derived tincture to be Certified for Sport® by NSF, the highly respected global third-party organization that establishes standards for safety, quality, sustainability, and performance.
CEO Jacques Tororoli noted, “Focus, recovery, and sleep are critical areas of optimization for athletes that our sports products can support. An NSF Certified for Sport® line can assure sports leagues and their players that ingredients are safe and certify that there are no banned substances. We believe our products, upon meeting NSF certification, will make a positive impact on the lives of professional, amateur athletes and fans alike.”
