If you’ve never heard of the company cbdMD, you’re probably not alone. The company operates in a niche corner of the market, making products containing CBD, a chemical found in marijuana plants that can act as a pain reliever, an anti-inflammatory and an anti-depressant.
CbdMD is making history as the first CBD company to list on a U.S. stock exchange, recently changing its ticker from “LEVB” to “YCBD.” The company boasts a wide range of inventory including oils, gummies, and even bath bombs for customers looking to treat minor aches and pains.
One of these customers is two-time Masters champion, Bubba Watson, who just signed a multi-year marketing deal with cbdMD. The 40-year old says he’s personally felt the benefits of the company’s products.
“After a tough day on the golf course, I want to be able to get better sleep and let the inflammation in my body go down”, he told Fox Business’s Gerri Willis. “I’m a believer in it, I’ve been using it and so the partnership came through.”
“It’s pretty special to be around when a great champion like that is winning” Watson said of Woods. “Obviously we all want to beat him and I want to beat him, but the impact he has on the game of golf is bar none.”
The 2019 PGA Championship tees off May 16th.
