August 7, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Isodiol International Inc. (CSE: ISOL) (OTC:ISOLD) (FSE: LB6A.F) (the “Company” or “Isodiol”), a global CBD leader and innovator is pleased to announce that Iso-Sport has entered into an agreement with ALTIS LLC (“Altis”), an Arizona based company that was built to bring Track & Field back to global prominence through multi-disciplinary uniﬁcation of the sport, to create the “Iso-Sport Living Lab” and investigate the impact of CBD on various areas of athlete health and performance.
Altis provides an environment in which elite athletes can thrive by providing coaching, integrated support services, education, and a complete athlete experience. The company helps shape the careers of many of the best athletes in the world and build championship performers. Altis is committed to an education program that nurtures and develops both coaches and athletes within its sport, assuring professionalism and continued growth at all levels of athletic development.
Through this relationship, Altis will work closely with Iso-Sport to focus on the research and development of CBD products for performance, recovery, and sleep. Specifically, the companies intend to:
- Design and implement a substantial designated area within a primary Altis track and field facility that is dedicated to sports science and named the “Iso-Sport Living Lab”;
- Produce or facilitate at least one research study per year investigating the impact of CBD on various areas of athlete health and performance; and
- Publish one or more articles on the Altis website on the scientifically demonstrated benefits of CBD in the various areas of athlete health and performance.
- Altis will distribute and sell Iso-Sport CBD performance products through its retail and wholesale distribution channels.
“Altis is home to over 100 athletes and Olympians from 30 different countries. Together, we hope to develop innovative products that will improve the recovery and performance of athletes and show consumers around the world the benefits of CBD in sports. With the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) removal of cannabidiol (CBD) from their List of Prohibited Substances and Methods in January 2018, Isodiol and Iso-Sport are positioned to capitalize on opportunities with athletes across the world,” said Isodiol CEO, Marcos Agramont.
“With the introduction of the Altis: Iso-Sport Living Lab, we aim to generate new scientific data and knowledge by exploring, experimenting, and evaluating new ideas within the natural sporting ecosystem. Altis is building a community of innovative, multi-disciplinary, and collaborative partnerships with educational institutions, private businesses, coaches, researchers, and athletes with the goal of, quite simply, changing the way sport science is done by turning the real world into a laboratory. This new relationship with Isodiol and Iso-Sport and the companies’ innovation with CBD products is a great step forward toward our goals,” said Altis CEO, Stuart McMillan.
As part of this relationship, Isodiol will make an initial cash payment to Altis of US$225,000 and provide a premium supply of Iso-Sport products to Altis athletes. Isodiol will make annual cash payments to Altis in the amount of US$125,000, based upon the achievement of certain performance milestones.
