Wellness Brand cbdMD Supports The Barstool Fund

Health and wellness marketer cbdMD will donate up to $500,000 from its online sales to The Barstool Fund starting in February.
In response to New York City’s shut down of indoor dining, David Portnoy—known on the internet for his “one bite everyone knowns the rules” pizza reviews—and Barstool Sports have set up The Barstool Fund. The fund is not only helping restaurants and bars, but it aims to support all small businesses around the country in need of help due to the effects of Covid-19. In under two months, Barstool Sports has raised over $30 million and has reached out to more than 150 businesses and counting.
“As fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners, we know firsthand how difficult the Covid-19 pandemic has been for so many small business owners here in America. Scott Coffman and I are honored for cbdMD to join Dave Portnoy in helping other businesses during this time of need. Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy; it’s good for America when small businesses thrive, and we urge other business owners to help however you can, as soon as you can,” said Marty Sumichrast, chairman and co-CEO of cbdMD Inc.

The brand recently made Happi headlines for rolling out a skin care line.
