SUPERIOR, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Functional Remedies, a pioneer in the wellness industry recognized for creating the highest quality full-spectrum hemp oil and plant-to-body products using 100% organic and sustainable farming, today announced the appointment of Asa Waldstein as its Senior Vice President of Operations. Under the new role, Mr. Waldstein will oversee inventory control, contract manufacturers, the extraction process, manufacturing and planning across functions and departments on behalf of Functional Remedies.
“Asa is a terrific addition to our already strong executive team,” says Andrew Campbell, CEO of Functional Remedies. “He brings a wealth of industry knowledge from the dietary supplements space, along with structural experience, that will help take Functional Remedies to the next level.”
As a Certified Clinical Herbalist (CCH) with over 15 years of experience, Mr. Waldstein has dedicated his career to streamlining operations and growing businesses while being on the intersection of clinical herbalism, bioavailable nutrient delivery, and scientific substantiation. He has developed, manufactured, and marketed hundreds of dietary supplement products and helped oversee three FDA GMP audits with no 483’s.
“I’ve seen a lot of similarities between what was going on in the early 2000s with supplements and what’s happening now in hemp with regulations,” says Mr. Waldstein. “What drew me to Functional Remedies is their standards for quality and compliance — they’re following all the rules. Not only that, but their products are exceptional, the executive team has a passion for natural healing and I admire the way they market their products in an ethical and effective way that focuses on educating consumers.”
Mr. Waldstein was voted by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) Board as Chair of its dynamic Cannabis Committee and holds roles as a Government Relations Committee and Sustainability Committee member at the organization.
