Imagine the world is changing very fast; we could Dodger CBD, Yankee’s CBD, Red Sox CBD, and more within the year. I would have never guessed such a thing would come true. The world is becoming more liberal well at least America is.
The MLB professional sports league is now reportedly allowing every single baseball team in the league to sell and buy sponsorships to marijuana businesses that market CBD products, as long as they meet certain bullet points.
The MLB has been the most progressive and innovate professional sports organizations in the United States of America when it comes to marijuana, and this breaking development represents a prime example of how the baseball league is making cannabis normal which is pushing the Federal Government into taking the core plant off the Schedule 1 drug list.
In order for a baseball team like the Astros, Mets, or Angels to sell a CBD sponsorship, Sports Business Journal first reported, a CBD company’s products must be certified by NSF International, a consumer safety and product-testing organization that many sports leagues use, and the club must also receive authorization from the MLB commissioner’s office.
The cbd news was announced by the baseball league in a conference call with team marketers on Tuesday.
MLB Chief Revenue Officer Noah Garden said that while certain cannabis brands have reached out about getting their CBD products certified, none have received that status yet, the sports news outlet reported.
“We’ve been watching this category for a while and waiting for it to mature to the point where we can get comfortable with it,” the MLB official said. “Our fans are very much the kind of customers they are looking for, and we like being first. It’s a good opportunity for us and the clubs.”
“The last few companies that came to see us about this, the process of NSF certification was embraced,” Garden added. “That gave us a comfort level to be able to move forward.”
