Functional Remedies Calls for Increased Regulation with Passing of the Farm Bill


Functional Remedies, makers of the only whole-plant, lipid-infused hemp
oil products, issued the following statements from its Chief Executive
Officer Anthony Mazzotti and Chief Science Officer Tim Gordon regarding
the anticipated signing of the 2018 Farm Bill by President Trump, which
will fully legalize hemp and all its derivatives under federal law.

Functional Remedies Chief Executive Officer Anthony Mazzotti:

We commend lawmakers for passing the Farm Bill, which places hemp and
hemp-derived products on par with other agricultural products regulated
by the USDA. It's been an injustice that hemp oil, which does not get
people ‘high,' has been wrongly treated in the same way as addictive
drugs such as heroin. And now that injustice has been corrected.

The reality is that consumers are taking ownership of their overall
health and wellness, and will now be able to enjoy the full benefits of
whole-plant hemp oil, versus just ‘CBD oil,' in their quest to bring
balance to their lives.

Unfortunately, in a buyer-beware marketplace, there are too many
companies looking to jump into the ‘green rush' that make false claims
and fail to adhere to accepted best practices. In this environment,
consumers become victims, and we encourage tighter regulation at both
the state and federal levels to provide better protection.

Functional Remedies Chief Science Officer Tim Gordon added:

One of our challenges is educating consumers on the differences
between full-spectrum hemp oil, ‘CBD oil', and ‘hemp seed oil.' And to
make matters worse, many companies claim to offer full-spectrum hemp
oil, when in reality they offer only a partial spectrum of
phytocannabinoids and terpenes.

The benefits to the body from whole-plant hemp oil—with all the
phytocannabinoids present—is compelling. For consumers to search for
‘CBD oil' or ‘hemp seed oil,' instead of full-spectrum hemp oil, to
improve their health is equivalent to searching for tires when in truth
one needs to buy a car.

We have our work cut out for us in bringing education to the consumer
that cuts through the misinformation and truly empowers them to enrich
their lives.
