CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 07, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD and YCBDpA), one of the nation's leading, highly trusted, and widely recognized CBD companies, today announces the release of the third product in its comprehensive NSF Certified for Sport® line of CBD products: cbdMD’s 1500 mg Tropical Mix Gummies with 50 mg of CBD per serving. The Company now has the largest product offering of Certified for Sport® products in the market with its cbdMD PM softgels, its general wellness 1500 mg softgels, and now its general wellness 1500 mg gummies to provide a full suite of solutions for consumers looking to have the cleanest products without fear of failing a drug test. Athletes at the highest levels have already begun their wellness journey confidently using cbdMD’s newly approved NSF Certified for Sport® as the brand leader they trust.

cbdMD continues to lead the market with its value proposition with Certified for Sport® products that offer the highest potency of CBD per serving at the lowest prices as compared to the competition. Not only does cbdMD have the largest product offering, the highest per serving milligrams, and the lowest prices, but independent testing shows that the cbdMD NSF Certified for Sport products contain significantly less THC than many of the other NSF for Sport products on the market1.

"Having the third product in our Certified for Sport line demonstrates our commitment to leading the industry with the most options for products that can be consumed without fear of failing a drug test. These products are not just for athletes," stated Shannon Charles, cbdMD’s Chief Marketing Officer. "First responders, doctors, nurses, educators, tradespeople, and anyone subject to workplace drug testing can rest assured they will not fail when taking the cbdMD Certified for Sport® products." She went on to say, "As we lead by example, it’s a really proud moment as the first CBD company with a Certified® for Sport® product on the market, and the company with the largest catalog of Certified for Sport® products. We don’t need a high-profile sponsorship deal with a major sports league to show the public why we are the best choice. With the most options available in the market, at the best value per milligram of CBD, we are confident consumers will make the right choice and choose cbdMD when it comes to their wellbeing."
