There’s no doubt that being a former athlete comes with so many benefits and positive life experiences. But there is one little thing nobody ever tells you: injuries can resurface, even years after you’ve walked away from the game. While you may have thought those ankle sprains and shin splints were long behind you, sometimes you get a gentle reminder that, well, they aren’t. Throw in the natural stressors of work, life, lack of sleep and unfortunately the pain can get worse over time.
Fewer people understand this feeling more than dosist executive chairman and co-founder Jason DeLand. A former collegiate baseball player, DeLand kicked off his career at a multi-disciplinary ad agency, but it wasn’t until he co-founded dosist in 2016 that his passions all merged. “I was always an athlete who played all kinds of sports, and my goal was to improve recovery because—with baseball in particular—you play in the summer, fall, and spring. It’s pretty tough on your body. I was looking for ways to recover and feel healthy, and that requires a balance of all things. [dosist] would have been helpful when I was playing, especially our topical products because of their effectiveness on the endocannabinoid system (the endocannabinoid system plays a big role in regulating important functions in the body like sleep, appetite, mood, and memory)” says DeLand.
For those who aren’t familiar, dosist is a modern wellness company dedicated to providing cannabis and natural plant-based therapies to help people improve their overall health and happiness. The company originally began in the regulated cannabis space but is currently rolling out a new line of advanced CBD+ topical relief products which include a lotion, roll-on, and performance relief spray oil.
Priding himself and dosist on encouraging the use of natural cannabinoid products that are targeted, innovative, and effective, DeLand brings rare credibility and authenticity to the space. His one goal? To rehabilitate and educate. “I'm constantly trying to find ways for the human body to be in balance because I believe the body is the most amazing prescription ever,” says DeLand.
