NEW YORK — Major League Baseball teams were told Tuesday that they can sell CBD sponsorships.
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a chemical compound found naturally in cannabis plants.
The commissioner’s office informed teams that a sponsor would need to be certified by the NSF, a global health and safety organization, to ensure the CBD products do not contain THC, which causes psychoactive effects. A sponsor would need to be approved by the commissioner’s office.
