Functional Remedies, a manufacturer of whole-plant hemp oil products, has announced its partnership with ultramarathon runner Jonathan Van Dyke. Van Dyke will serve as a brand ambassador for Functional Remedies and its many hemp oil products, such as EndoSport Hemp Oil.
“We are excited to have Jonathan Van Dyke join team Functional Remedies as the first ultramarathon athlete to sign a hemp oil endorsement,” said Functional Remedies CMO Tony Tomassini. “Such an intense sport requires a well-balanced and effective recovery process. We’re proud Van Dyke added our incredibly efficacious hemp oil into his training routine, and we look forward to watching him go after national records.”
“I use EndoSport hemp oil for two reasons; one is to enhance my ability to train and the other is to recover from my training and competitions,” said Van Dyke. “Running long distance is no joke. It takes a lot of mental and physical endurance. My body has to be in top shape.”
Van Dyke started running ultramarathon races in 2015 and has consistently improved to be among the upper echelon of competitors. He is currently preparing for the upcoming Quad Rock 50, a 50-mile run, at Fort Collins, Colorado on May 11, 2019.
Functional Remedies produces hand-pressed, lipid-infused hemp oil, derived from the most nutrient-dense hemp plants, and formulated using a proprietary whole-plant, lipid infusion process. The company claims that this results in ‘highly efficacious products that deliver the greatest possible entourage effect and are far superior to CBD isolate and concentrate products made with CO2 and chemical extraction processes.’
Functional Remedies adds that it is the only vertically-integrated company with complete control from farm to cultivation to finished goods.
