The first-ever CBD company sponsorship of a baseball team was announced on Wednesday.

Portland-based Lazarus Naturals will sponsor independent West Coast League team The Portland Pickles for two years.

Meanwhile, the Lazarus Naturals Veterans at the Park Program will offer fans and their veteran friends the chance to win five tickets to sit in the luxury Lazarus Naturals Patriot Box.

Pickles owner and operating partner, Alan Miller, said:

“We are incredibly excited to be working with Lazarus Naturals.

“When we heard their vision of supporting the veteran community, we knew this would be a tremendous fit with our fans.”

More and more sports teams and leagues are aligning themselves with CBD. Rapper Ice Cube’s BIG3 basketball league has a partnership with cbdMD and allows players to use CBD.

There are also numerous CBD sponsors in Americas motorsport leagues.

In the UK, Saracens rugby club team mates George Kruis and Dom Day launched their fourfive CBD range in December 2018. You can read their story in Issue 1 of Vapouround CBD.
