International, Vertically-Integrated Hemp Oil Now Available via Wholesale to Licensed Practitioners Through Lhasa OMS

Functional Remedies, the only vertically-integrated hemp oil company, has partnered with Lhasa OMS, the largest distributor of acupuncture needles and supply manufacturers in the U.S., to continue accelerated growth into progressive health and wellness sectors in the U.S. 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 to 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 for acupuncture practitioners to get all the supplies they need to improve the lives of their patients. We look forward to continuing to expand our presence in and break through alternative additional health markets throughout 2019.”

“For almost 40 years, Lhasa OMS has been helping to build the foundation acupuncture profession in the U.S.,” said Lhasa OMS Vice President of Merchandising Mike Bailey. “We recognize more Americans are looking for alternative ways 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 be carrying Functional Remedies lipid-infused hemp oil - a natural fit for the acupuncturists’ arsenal.”

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