Right Time. Right Place. Right Partners.
Stemming from a shared desire to support ambitious, active adult lifestyles and a true passion to live each day to its absolute fullest, Tom Kurz and Chris Peck joined forces in 2019 to launch Remedy+.
Recognizing the synergy between Tom’s extensive experience in brand development and sports entertainment, and Chris’s personal endeavor to find an alternative for pain medications after various physical ailments, the two set off on a journey to create a line of products that would effectively and naturally support an individual from morning to night.
Both Tom and Chris saw a demand for a healthy line of natural, plant-based products that could offer consumers a pathway to maintaining and even improving physical and mental capabilities necessary to excel in the office, on the playing fields, and in everyday life. Driven by this strong passion for encouraging people to live up to their full potential, each Remedy+ offering has been specially formulated to offer a sophisticated combination of hemp compounds and other plant-based ingredients to enhance everyday performance.
