The BRAND AMBASSADOR agrees to review the information at the below links and understands the rules surrounding the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requirements referenced via the below links. The Brand Ambassador agrees to abide by these requirements:
Disclosures 101 for Social Media Influencers Guide from the Federal Trade Commission
FTC Releases Advertising Disclosures Guidance for Online Influencers:
Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising:
The BRAND AMBASSADOR agrees to review the below information understands the rules surrounding the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements referenced below surrounding the promotion, advertising and selling of CBD and THC.Â The Brand Ambassador agrees to abide by these requirements:
Health Claims: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently classifies both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as drugs. Under the federal Food and Drug Cosmetics Act, a â€œdrugâ€ is a defined term and includes â€œarticles intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in man or other animalsâ€¦â€
For non-drug articles, including our products, you may not make any claims that a product containing CBD and/or THC may be used to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent a disease. The FDA has sent warning letters to companies that it has found making these types of claims.
Examples of Impermissible Claims: CBD may reduce symptoms of schizophrenia . . .studies show CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory with great potential towards issues including anti-anxiety, anti-pain, anti-psychosis, anti-spasm, and more.â€
SUPPLEMENTS: Despite the 2018 Farm Bill, the FDA still does not currently classify CBD as a supplement under the Food Drug and Cosmetics Act. You must not represent that our products are supplements to anyone, either in writing or orally.
The FDA is currently working on pathways that may permit CBD/THC to be added to food, beverages, and cosmetics and/or to be sold as a dietary supplement. Until that work is complete, you must not make any claims, either in writing or orally, that our products are supplements or that they may treat, prevent, cure, mitigate, or diagnose a disease.
CODE OF ETHICS
One CBD, Inc. and its affiliated and subsidiary entities (from time to time hereinafter referred to collectively as the Supplier or One CBD), has made a commitment to provide products and services of the finest quality backed with impeccable service. In turn, the Supplier expects its Brand Ambassadors to reflect that image in their relationships with Consumers and other Brand Ambassadors. As a Brand Ambassador for One CBD, you are generally free to operate your business as you see fit, but it is to our mutual, long-term advantage if you accord to the highest standards of integrity and fair practice in your role as a Brand Ambassador.
The Code of Ethics, therefore, states:
As a One CBD Brand Ambassador:
I will to the best of my ability continually improve the health, wellbeing and prosperity of myself and my One CBD family.
I will conduct my business in an honest, ethical manner always.
I will make no representations (claims) regarding benefits associated with Supplier products or services other than those contained in officially approved corporate literature and videos.
I will refrain from making false financial claims and exaggerating my personal income.
I will not abuse the goodwill of my association with the Supplier to further or promote other business interests (particularly those which may be competitive to the Supplier).
I will not make disparaging remarks about the Supplier, its products, officers, members, managing members, employees and Brand Ambassadors. As well as, other products, services, or companies; likewise, I will not willfully denigrate the activities or personalities of fellow Brand Ambassadors.
I will refrain from posting content to social media that me be damaging to the suppliers brand such as blatantly partisan views, discriminatory, racist, offensive, obscene, inflammatory, unlawful or otherwise objectionable statements, language or content.
Any violation of the above Code of Ethics may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of the Brand Ambassador Agreement.
