Warren Bobrow=WB: Please inform me about yourself?
Melissa Parker=MP: I am a Los Angeles local, a spouse, mom of three ladies, and creator of Reed’s Remedies For as long as I might remember, I’ve wanted nature and, more specifically, a fascination with medical plants, pharmacology and human biology. I get it from my dad, Expense Reed, who passed away from a brain aneurysm when I was 17, and I expect he got it from his father, Ernest “Dale” Reed, who was a chemist. Like them, my delighted location is being neck deep in science and research study … but constantly with a focus on the natural world and an objective to recover. In 2015, I discovered CBD, and the more research study I took in, the more I ended up being absolutely encouraged that this cannabinoid would reinvent health, wellness and medication as we know it.
Considering That 2015, I have actually been working with among the industry’s leading researchers on a new technology that integrates sophisticated molecular steam-distilled cannabinoids (CBD) and effective terpenes to create solutions that are highly concentrated, created for quick absorption, pure and targeted. Alone, each active ingredient has a level of healing value, however the “magic” occurs when each of our formula components are combined. Their medicinal homes are strengthened, and they collaborate to produce effective, fast-acting results in the form of an oral spray.
Our sprays deliver a precise dose of 7mg of CBD-rich hemp oil in each pump. The closed container preserves its pureness and strength by keeping it safe from direct exposure to air and impurities.
3 years of R&D work has entered into Reed’s Remedies, which introduced in2018 Other than my 3 daughters, these products are my proudest accomplishments. Seeing Reed’s Remedies included throughout Erewhon Market shops is a beautiful benefit too, as Southern Californians understand that Erewhon is associated with cutting-edge development, sustainability, and the highest quality health and health items.
WB: I wrote a book, in fact my very first book- on Apothecary Cocktails. How much is the present trend surrounding CBD various from the pharmacists operating in drug store science in the 1800’s? What do you consider the term Snake Oil? How does this impact your work?
MP: Due to the fact that of my reliance on apothecary sciences and botany, I have actually constantly seemed like a pharmacist from the 1800 s, particularly back in 2008 at the height of my organic medicine practice. A hundred years back, vital oils and organic tinctures (including marijuana and hemp oil!) were readily available at pharmacies throughout the U.S. and used as a main source of medication.
Snake oil in today’s market is widespread and really genuine; study after study validates that the majority of items online that declare to be CBD are in reality oils low in CBD and high in unsafe toxic substances. It falls upon companies like mine to fight the bad credibility they have actually developed. To that end, each bottle of Reed’s Treatments bears a QR code that allows easy access to independent, 3rd party lab test results on the specific formulation scanned. I do not desire customers to take my word for it; I want them to see for themselves and feel guaranteed that Reed’s Remedies are without solvents, heavy metals, toxic substances, pesticides, chemicals and additives. Our solutions are pure by nature and style so that my consumers are only consuming what they need, and absolutely nothing more. We likewise source from among simply 13 hemp farms to bear the U.S. Hemp Authority seal, a stamp provided to a select couple of that follow the strictest, cleanest and best growing practices.
WB: Please tell me about how you deal with preconceptions? How do you tell people about what you do? What is their most typical response?
MP: In California, there isn’t too much preconception or resistance, though I was initially reluctant to inform associates in my external circles about what I do. Some people are anxious about the possibility of feeling out of control or high.
WB: Do you cook? Have you ever prepared foods that your granny made when you were young?
MP: I don’t have many chefs in my household, however I am blessed to have actually grown up in Los Angeles, where there is so much variety in food. When I desire convenience food, I drive to a little hole-in-the wall place in the heart of the San Fernando Valley called Mandarin Deli which serves authentic Mandarin food which makes my soul smile.
WB: What is your enthusiasm?
MP: Helping people who are suffering. Life has lots of suffering, and none people are unsusceptible to it. From losing my daddy in my youth to experiencing a car accident as an adult that left me handling persistent pain and a host of long-lasting medical problems, I understand first-hand how unpleasant life can be. Helping individuals in any way I can, by providing relief that is within reach, is what has and continues to drive me. Sharing my understanding of plant medicine and providing people a restored sense of hope and excitement in life is beyond satisfying.
