PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Athletes competing in Spartan race events will soon be able to add Lazarus Naturals CBD to their race recovery routines, thanks to a partnership deal announced today. Through the sponsorship, Lazarus Naturals will provide its high-quality CBD tinctures, balms and massage oils to thousands of race finishers, supporting the company’s mission to make CBD more affordable and accessible for all.
“Spartan encourages and enables athletes at all fitness levels to push their limits and achieve more,” said Ian Lawson, global brand partnerships at Spartan. “That’s in perfect alignment with Lazarus Naturals, which make it possible to thrive—not just survive, and we’re excited to team up with Lazarus Naturals to provide our athletes with high-quality CBD products to help achieve their goals.”
While Spartan events bring in athletes from all walks of life, 22 percent of participants are military veterans, which Lazarus Naturals actively supports through its Assistance Program. Eligible consumers who are retired from active duty, on long-term disability or receive income assistance, can apply to receive a 60 percent lifetime discount on all Lazarus Naturals products.
“Our customers reach out to us all the time to share what a difference our products have made in their lives. It’s why we do what we do,” said Nicki Briggs, chief marketing officer at Lazarus Naturals. “Whether you’re training for an actual race, or just trying to keep up with the day-to-day pace of real life, our mission is to provide high-quality CBD products consumers can trust, at the right price."
Lazarus Naturals offers the lowest cost-per-milligram CBD products on the market that are made according to current Good Manufacturing Practices and are third-party tested for potency, cannabinoid profile as well as the presence of pesticides and heavy metals. Test results for every batch are available on the company’s website.
