Former NHL player is enforcing a higher quality of life by advocating for the use of CBD as a sports recovery and wellness enabler

Miami Springs, FL (PRUnderground) August 29th, 2019

 AG Health, the leader in pioneering Endocannabinoid Nutrition (ECN) products and a company, which is committed to bringing unrivaled product innovation, has added former professional ice hockey defenseman Dale Purinton, to the company’s roster as an Athletic Liaison for the company’s ECN portfolio brand, VEDA

Purinton will help to advance VEDA’s vision to demystify the use of cannabinoids in sports and to support sports injury recovery, increase awareness and promote research. 

Purinton and VEDA’s shared goal is to make CBD the first choice for health, performance and healing for professional athletes, amateur athletes and everything in between. Dale “Diesel” Purinton was an enforcer, and his job was to intimidate the opposing team and protect his team’s star players – usually by using bodily force. Purington now advocates for the use of CBD and wants everyone to enjoy the same benefits he has had.                                                                         

“CBD truly gave my life back — I’m a passionate advocate of hemp-based solutions after experiencing the recovery and pain management benefits first-hand,” said Purinton. “Having to cope with the pressure and injuries from a career to overcome pain to perform a job at the highest level leads to serious damage to mental and physical health. We all have to manage these things to live a happier and higher quality of life. We have only scratched the surface of the benefits offered by CBD when it comes to sports, and partnering up with VEDA allows us to continue to raise awareness about these important issues by providing supportive solutions with the use of CBD.”

AG Health developed the company’s CBD portfolio brand VEDA to address the deficiency in Endocannabinoid Nutrition (ECN) that affects the health and well-being of individuals all over the world. The company has nutrient-rich CBD formulations available in vape pens, oral sprays, sublingual oils, topical products, and is launching a new pre-workout hybrid product on September 1.

“Partnering with my former linemate, Dale Purinton, adds a level of experience in the athletic world that is hard to come by,” said Marvin Degon IV, former professional hockey player and Director of Athletics at AG Health. “He’s found success in the hardest arena of sports and brings with him his knowledge and experiences of how to use cannabis as a tool not only for recovery but to improve your overall health. The personality that he will give to VEDA and the cannabis industry is something that everyone will benefit from. From experience, Dale is a fierce competitor and an enthusiastic advocate. Having his voice bellowed through the cannabis industry with VEDA’s informative message will be an outstanding addition to our team.”
