Warren Bobrow=WB: Please inform me about yourself?
Melissa Parker=MP: I am a Los Angeles native, a partner, mom of 3 girls, and creator of Reed’s Solutions Like them, my pleased place is being neck deep in science and research study … but constantly with a focus on the natural world and a goal to recover.
Given That 2015, I’ve been dealing with among the industry’s leading scientists on a new technology that combines sophisticated molecular steam-distilled cannabinoids (CBD) and effective terpenes to create solutions that are extremely focused, developed for fast absorption, pure and targeted. Alone, each component has a level of restorative worth, but the “magic” happens when each of our formula active ingredients are united. Their medicinal properties are reinforced, and they collaborate to produce powerful, fast-acting results in the form of an oral spray.
Our sprays provide 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 contaminants.
3 years of R&D work has actually gone into Reed’s Solutions, which introduced in2018 Aside from my 3 children, these items are my proudest accomplishments. Seeing Reed’s Treatments featured throughout Erewhon Market stores is a beautiful reward too, as Southern Californians understand that Erewhon is synonymous with cutting-edge innovation, sustainability, and the highest quality health and wellness items.
WB: I composed a book, really my very first book- on Apothecary Cocktails. How much is the present fad surrounding CBD different from the pharmacists working in pharmacy science in the 1800’s? What do you think about the term Snake Oil? How does this affect your work?
MP: Because of my dependence on apothecary sciences and botany, I have actually always felt like a pharmacist from the 1800 s, particularly back in 2008 at the height of my organic medication practice. A hundred years earlier, essential oils and herbal casts (consisting of cannabis and hemp oil!) were available at pharmacies throughout the U.S. and utilized as a primary source of medication.
Snake oil in today’s market is widespread and really real; study after research study verifies that the majority of products online that declare to be CBD are in truth oils low in CBD and high in dangerous toxic substances. I don’t desire consumers to take my word for it; I desire them to see for themselves and feel assured that Reed’s Solutions are complimentary of solvents, heavy metals, contaminants, pesticides, chemicals and additives.
WB: Please inform me about how you deal with preconceptions?
MP: In California, there isn’t too much preconception or resistance, though I was initially hesitant to tell acquaintances in my external circles about what I do. Some individuals are nervous about the possibility of feeling out of control or high.
WB: Do you cook? Have you ever prepared foods that your grandmother made when you were young? (If you were fortunate sufficient to have a grandmother who prepared for you?) What is your favorite dining establishment? What sort of food? Where is it?
MP: I don’t have numerous chefs in my family, however I am blessed to have grown up in Los Angeles, where there is so much diversity in cuisine. When I want comfort 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: Assisting people who are suffering. Life has lots of suffering, and none of us are immune to it. From losing my dad in my youth to experiencing a car mishap as an adult that left me handling chronic discomfort and a host of long-term medical issues, I understand first-hand how uncomfortable life can be. Helping individuals in any way I can, by supplying relief that is within reach, is what has and continues to drive me. Sharing my knowledge of plant medication and offering individuals a renewed sense of hope and excitement in life is beyond satisfying.
