SUPERIOR, Colo.--()--Functional Remedies, a pioneer in the wellness industry known for its organic full-spectrum, plant-to-bottle hemp oil products, today announces a new partnership with Dr. Joel Kahn, “America’s Healthy Heart Doc” (a frequent guest on talk shows including ‘Dr. Phil’, ‘The Dr. Oz Show’, and ‘The Doctors Show’) and world-renowned thought leader in preventive and natural medicine. Dr. Kahn will serve as the company’s newest brand ambassador and expert on the health benefits of full-spectrum hemp oil products.

“I was drawn to Functional Remedies because I not only saw phenomenal results using their products myself and with my patients—but the company is also backed by strong science, a team with integrity, and delivers the highest quality products that set the industry standard,” says Dr. Kahn.

Based in Detroit, Michigan—Dr. Kahn runs a successful preventive cardiology practice where he has seen very positive results in his patients who use Functional Remedies products for relief from a variety of ailments including migraines, anxiety, and stress. He has also personally tried a few dozen full-spectrum hemp oil products and had never experienced a better and deeper night’s sleep before trying Functional Remedies 50mg hemp oil in capsule form. At his core, Dr. Kahn believes that any product he uses personally and gives to his patients needs to be supported by science and the results need to be consistent for his patients.

“Having such a well-respected expert in the medical and preventive medicine community as Dr. Kahn join our roster of amazing spokespeople is a true honor,” says Andrew Campbell, CEO of Functional Remedies. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and credibility that we know our customers and the industry at large will benefit from tremendously.”

Functional Remedies’ hemp focused products have been meticulously crafted over 25 years and are painstakingly formulated to work in sync with the bio-individuality of one's body. The company’s whole-plant, full-spectrum hemp oil delivers benefits far beyond CBD alone and allows the body to access the full range of beneficial compounds including phytocannabinoids, polyphenols, fatty acids, and other potentially healthful benefits. When all of these cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds in the plant work together in synergy, the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual effects, creating a true entourage effect. Functional Remedies’ proprietary lipid infusion process, LipidTrans™, employs a gentle, low-heat process that uses cellular bonding to infuse the active beneficial phytocompounds of the whole hemp plant with a lipid (usually coconut or MCT oil) while preserving the integrity of the plant molecules and making them bioavailable.

“Whenever I open a bottle of Functional Remedies hemp oil, it makes me feel closer to nature; like smelling fresh-cut grass,” says Dr. Kahn. “I don’t get the same experience with other full-spectrum hemp products on the market. Functional Remedies uses a different process of extraction that captures the whole family of compounds that are in this plant and you can tell just by smelling it.”

Previously, 2019 PGA Charles Schwab World Cup Champion Scott McCarron served as Functional Remedies’ brand ambassador.
