Cannabis And Sport: Portland Pickles is 1st Pro Baseball Team to Sell THC Products at Home Games

Cannabis is now well-known for its association with sports medicine, but a US baseball team is taking things to the next level. The Portland Pickles will be the first US sports team to sell THC products at its home games as sport and cannabis hit the entertainment level.

The Portland Pickles, an Oregon baseball team in the summer West Coast League, is set to be the first sports team in the U.S. to sell THC-infused beverages at games. The team partnered with Cycling Frog to offer the hemp-derived THC beverages at its home games.


In a statement, Ross Campbell, vice president of business development, said the Pickles “have a responsibility in the sports industry to take leaps and set precedent of innovative partnerships.”


“As we saw in 2019, becoming the first team to ever partner with a CBD company, and quickly teams all the way up to the Major League level across sports follow suit. We are very proud to provide an alternative option at our games with Cycling Frog Products for our incredible fans and the city of Portland!” — Campbell in a press release.


The Cycling Frog Light Seltzer will be available at the Pickles’ Walker Stadium starting June 18. The Light Seltzer contains 2 milligrams of THC per serving.


Matt Palomares, vice president of brand marketing of Cycling Frog, said in a statement that the company is “thrilled to be making history” with the Pickles.


“At Cycling Frog, we believe cannabis consumption should be normalized, accessible, and fun! What could be more normal than going to a baseball game and cheering for your local team?” Palomares said in a press release. “Making THC seltzers available at Pickles games is a huge step and we look forward to sparking a broader conversation via this partnership.”
