Functional Remedies Partners with Largest Acupuncture Distributor in U.S.

May 14, 2019

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

Functional Remedies, the premier vertically-integrated hemp oil company, has partnered with Lhasa OMS, the largest distributor of acupuncture products and Chinese herbs in the U.S., to continue accelerated growth into progressive health and wellness sectors. As consumers are exploring more alternative healthcare treatments to help manage and self-regulate their own health and wellness, the partnership with Lhasa OMS will allow Functional Remedies to directly tap into the rapidly expanding acupuncture market.

The global acupuncture market is one of the fastest growing alternative medicine markets in the world. Currently, the global acupuncture market is projected to be valued at $24.5 billion by the end of 2023, growing at a 14.5 percent CAGR during the forecast period according to Market Research Future (MRFR).

“We are excited to partner with Lhasa OMS to give practitioners convenient access our whole-plant hemp oil, particularly as more Americans are looking at ways to bring balance to their daily lives,” said Functional Remedies CEO Anthony Mazzotti. “Lhasa OMS is a respected leader in the space and a go-to resource for acupuncture practitioners that require daily supplies to treat and care for their patients. We look forward to continuing to expand our presence in additional alternative health markets in 2020 and beyond.”

“For over 40 years, Lhasa OMS has been helping to build the foundation of the acupuncture profession in the U.S.,” said Carl Schwartz, Lhasa OMS vice president of marketing and customer care. “We recognize more Americans are looking for integrative methods to improve their health and wellness and through this partnership, we will provide practitioners with even more tools to help improve patients’ well-being. We are excited to offer Functional Remedies’ lipid-infused hemp oil -- a natural fit for acupuncturists’ treatment plans.”

Functional Remedies also recently announced it was partnering with Symbia to increase order turnaround by ten-fold and has expanded into a new 25,000 square foot production lab to increase its hemp oil output by ten-fold.
