23 Aug Boxing Authority Joins Cannabis Market
On Thursday, the World Boxing Council (WBC) announced a new venture for the launch of branded hemp-derived CBD wellness products with Albuquerque, New Mexico-based manufacturer Craft 1861.
Mauricio Sulaiman, WBC president, said this partnership and the launch of these new products could aid in the transformation of the entire professional sports community.
No launch date was given in the statement, but the two groups confirmed they will seek to sell these wellness products in training facilities, retail outlets, online and at event venues.
A portion of the sales for all branded products will be sent to the WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund to assist retired professional boxers experiencing financial difficulties.
