Google Announces Pilot Program for CBD Advertising
By Elizabeth Lunt
Google will for the first time allow ads for some CBD products on its advertising platform, the company announced.
Google said in late December that it would update its ad policies on Jan. 20 to permit the limited promotion of pharmaceuticals containing CBD that have been approved by the FDA, as well as the promotion of non-ingested items such as candles and beauty products containing CBD, or cannabidiol. The ads in the pilot program will be shown only to users in California, Colorado and Puerto Rico, Google said.
