cbdMD announced as exclusive CBD Partner of Monster Energy Supercross | News
Feld Motor Sports, Inc. announced today cbdMD has come on board as the exclusive CBD partner for both Monster Energy Supercross and the Monster Energy Cup.
cbdMD consumer cannabidiol (CBD) brand whose current products include CBD tinctures, CBD gummies, CBD topicals, CBD bath bombs, and CBD pet products.
CBD is a hemp oil extract which has a range of medical uses including aiding recovery and reducing anxiety.CBD doesn’t get you high, is fully legal and is not on the WADA banned substances list.
CBD is not to be confused with medical marijuana containing THC, CBD won’t get you high but it does come from hemp, which is a variety of the cannabis Sativa plant species.
Feld Motor Sports’ exclusive partnership with cbdMD represents a huge shift in the sport from earlier this year when AMA has banned CBD products from being advertised. This was following incidents involving riders displaying logos of CBD companies at Monster Energy Supercross events.
Dean Wilson was instructed to cover the Ignite CBD logos on his bike and gear at Anaheim 1 at the request of the official broadcaster, NBC, and the AMA. Then at Minneapolis, Chad Reed showed up with stickers on his helmet for cbdMD, a personal sponsor of his, but he was allowed to display the logo, I wonder why… We understand, however, the issue surrounding Wilson displaying Ignite CBD logos was due to Ignite also selling products which contain THC.
