San Diego, California, UNITED STATES

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CV Sciences, Inc (OTCQB: CVSI) (the “Company”, “we” or “our”), a preeminent supplier and manufacturer of hemp cannabidiol (CBD) products through its brand PlusCBD Oil™, is the first-ever CBD sponsor of the Farmers Insurance Open. The Farmers Insurance Open is a PGA Golf tournament taking place Thursday, Jan. 23, through Sunday, Jan. 26, at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California.

CV Sciences is the official CBD Partner of the Farmers Insurance Open as well as the Presenting Sponsor at the tournament. CV Sciences will be hosting a booth at The Grove, adjacent to the 18th Hole of the South Course at Torrey Pines. Tournament attendees will be able to sample PlusCBD™ Oil products, learn more about the potential benefits of hemp-derived CBD, and have the chance to win PlusCBD™ Oil products and exclusive CV Sciences gear.

Why CBD & Golf
Emerging scientific evidence suggests that hemp-derived CBD may promote relaxation and assist in muscle recovery. For these reasons, golf athletes turn to hemp CBD products to help with body aches and soreness that hinder them on the course, as well as the “first tee jitters.” CBD works with the body to aide in muscle recovery after a long golf game by regulating inflammatory response. Since 2018, when the World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from its banned substance list, the PGA Tour Anti-Doping organization does not list CBD as a prohibited substance for players.

“We are proud to be the official CBD Partner of the Farmers Insurance Open as this serves as another proof point of our commitment to safe, high-quality products,” said Joseph Dowling, Chief Executive Officer, CV Sciences.  “We believe both professional and amateur golfers can benefit from PlusCBD™ Oil products and we look forward to increasing our visibility among the golf community through this sponsorship.”
