LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Uncle Bud's, one of the fastest-growing hemp and CBD brands in the country, announces today that they have named Academy Award-winning actress, producer, author and activist, Jane Fonda, as their newest ambassador. The partnership will continue throughout 2020 and include marketing and advertising aspects.
Utilizing her personal social media accounts including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, Fonda shared a video including a trifecta of Uncle Bud's product to align with the new partnership news. This included their Hemp Hand Sanitizer, CBD Lip Balm and Hemp Body Lotion.
"I'm excited to partner with Uncle Bud's," said Jane Fonda. "Wellness has always been incredibly important to me and these hemp-based products recently caught my attention. They're eco-friendly, cruelty-free and, most importantly, effective!"

"Her activism and values align with the company and there is no question that she is an icon of health and wellness both past and present. It was truly a no brainer and we can't wait to share what's in store."
In celebration of the announcement, Uncle Bud's will donate 1,000 units of their Hemp Hand Sanitizer to Safe Place for Youth, a non-profit organization which provides care and support to youth experiencing homelessness, on behalf of Jane. Then, Uncle Bud's will donate an additional hand sanitizer for each re-post and tag accrued over the 48 hours following the post.
