Charlotte’s Webs’ Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer Jared Stanley will join two senior representatives from Major League Baseball (MLB): Jon Coyles, vice president of drug, health and safety programs, and Uzma Rawn, senior vice president of global corporate partnerships in a panel discussion at the upcoming ninth annual NoCo Hemp Expo.
The expo will take place at the historic Broadmoor Resort and Convention Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., from March 29 to the 31.
Morris Beegle, producer of NoCo Hemp Expo and publisher of “Let’s Talk Hemp”, will lead the panel discussion, held as part of NoCo9’s Advocacy and Policy Conference on Wednesday, March 29, 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. MST, the opening day of NoCo Hemp Expo — and the day before “Opening Day” of MLB’s 2023 season on March 30.
Major League Baseball became the first major professional sports league to enter into a sponsorship agreement with a CBD company when it announced its partnership with Charlotte’s Web in October 2022. The intimate discussion will dive into this groundbreaking partnership, what it means for Charlotte’s Web, and how having athletes lead the way will further educate the public about the vast potential of CBD as a natural wellness option.
“The MLB and Charlotte’s Web partnership is a historic milestone for sports and the CBD industry. The physical demands and strain on an athlete’s body are a century-old problem, and we’re here to help them address recovery in a new way. And when all else is stripped away, the mental state of an athlete is what distinguishes the greats. We know that hemp-derived CBD can provide natural solutions for top-tier athletes—in both mind and body—as well as support the everyday lives of fans. As more and more athletes advocate for the benefits of CBD, MLB stands as a thought leader in advocating for player options,” said Stanley.
“As we enter our first full season working with Charlotte’s Web, we’re really excited to see this partnership come to life,” Rawn added.
Denver-based Charlotte’s Web Holdings, Inc. includes a family of brands such as Charlotte’s Web, CBD Medic, CBD Clinic and Harmony Hemp.
