In the past few years, the CBD industry has exploded. We have a tremendous variety of products and new ones come out every other day. The federal government removed hemp and it’s derivatives from the tier 1 controlled substances list late last year. And yet, for every two steps forward our society takes, someone is going to take one step back.
As written in this article from Cycle News, one of these steps backwards is how broadcast standards regarding CBD products is still unclear. This is the main reason why MX Sports had to ban any appearances of CBD sponsors (and they can’t even mention them by name when on air!) MX Sports said that any un-aired events can have CBD sponsors; they are just trying to comply with all of the federal laws that have yet to be worked out.
