Functional Remedies’ Tim Gordon: Hemp Trailblazer

By Steven Hoffman

From seed to shelf, Tim Gordon has been at the forefront of the hemp and cannabis industry since well before it was legal. From a few narrow escapes with the law in the 1990s to serving today as Chief Science Officer for Functional Remedies and its full spectrum hemp oil brand Synchronicity™, it’s been a long and winding road for the Colorado-based industrial hemp trailblazer.

“I began growing cannabis in the 1990s and quickly became a passionate student and advocate of the plant. I watched friends suffering from serious illnesses and they needed relief with the cannabis I was giving them. I would risk everything to help these people feel better. This is what still drives me today. Only 25 years ago, I was deemed a criminal for growing cannabis; now I’m invited to speak around the world about its benefits,” Gordon said.

Tim’s responsibilities as Chief Science Officer for Functional Remedies include scientific, technological and research operations, agronomic and genetic research, trial and clinical work, advising on scientific matters, serving as a company spokesperson, and more.

Hemp Supporters, there’s never been a more urgent opportunity to support CBD on Capitol Hill. If passed, H.R. 8179 would ensure that hemp-derived CBD, and other non-intoxicating hemp ingredients, could be lawfully marketed as dietary supplements.
