NFL Hall of Famer Franco Harris, famous for winning four Super Bowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers and making a catch known as the “immaculate reception,” which recently was named the best play in football history, has just scored big in a new arena.
Harris has joined DouleuRX, a CBD producer with a line that includes topicals, capsules, and tinctures. Harris is not simply bringing his name recognition and calling it a day. He is investing in the company and working with the DouleuRX product development team.
“In addition to results, the DouleuRx products are backed by proven science, undeniable quality, and top tier leadership,” Harris said in a release. “I believe in these products so much that not only do I use them, but I’m also proud to share them with my friends and family.”
There is an old cliché used in professional sports—“leave it all on the field.” Unfortunately for many former NFL players, the one thing they cannot leave on the field after walking away from the game is the chronic aches and pains.
“I have been proud of my two-decade career in the NFL,” Harris said. “Awards and championships aside, that amount of time on the field takes its toll on your body. I have never experienced relief like the DouleuRx products provide.”
The partnership seems to be perfect for both Harris and DouleuRX.
“We are thrilled to welcome Franco to the team,” Chuck Miller, vice president of sales and marketing said. “For more than twenty years, few could match him on the field, and today he is a successful entrepreneur. He is a DouleuRx consumer and believes in the brand. In an industry with a lot of hype, Franco is the real deal and so is DouleuRx.”
All DouleuRX products are made from hemp-derived CBD and are in compliance with federal regulations requiring products to contain no more than 0.3 percent THC. The brand was created by Dr. Richard Staack who has earned a Ph.D. in Nutritional and Biochemical Toxicology, a Master of Science in Food Science, and an M.B.A. Staack has focused on innovative bioavailability techniques to facilitate efficient absorption of CBD.
Staack’s experience is a welcome addition to an industry dealing with fallout from the vaping crisis, which many believe is mostly linked to black market manufacturers. According to DouleuRX, the company is dedicated to transparency and tracks all products from seed to sale. The CBD and hemp used in production are cultivated in organic farms throughout the United States and packaged at FDA certified facilities.
