I had a great time talking with Riley Cote at The House. Riley has chosen a new path in life since retiring from the sport. He has the TEAM work mentality still flowing through his veins. He is finding new ways to help others and educating the public about cannabis and HEMP CBD products. 2 conconusions diagnosed, several not , broken ribs, broken nose, brused and battered. It was time to heal and not with pills. This is Riley's journey.
Riley D. Cote : former professional ice hockey left winger and is currently an assistant coach with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League (AHL). He played eight National Hockey League (NHL) seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers and was mainly known as an enforcer.
The Hemp Heals Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization created by former Philadelphia Flyer tough guy Riley Cote. Riley’s quest is to help teach people the power of nutrition and sustainable lifestyles. Focusing on the prevention of disease and attaining optimum health. The misunderstood cannabis hemp plant is in fact the most useful plant that grows on this planet. A non toxic, eco friendly, renewable resource that has been used around the world for thousands of years. The nutritional profile of hemp seeds make it one of the most nutritionally complete foods on the planet. Nutrient dense whole foods such as hemp seeds posses a ton of nutrition and powerful healing properties that help keep body balanced on a cellular level. Hemp is much more than a nutritional powerhouse, it’s the world’s most perfect plant.
