CV Sciences, a San Diego CBD manufacturer, has lured a former dietary supplement executive to oversee its research and regulatory compliance.
MacKay was formerly a vice president with the Council for Responsible Nutrition, a trade association representing dietary supplement and functional food manufacturers and ingredients suppliers.
“His background and leadership capabilities make him the ideal person to lead our scientific and regulatory team,” CV Sciences CEO Joseph Dowling said in a news release.
CV Sciences trades on over-the-counter markets as CVSI.
