visiting the From the Earth Information & Resource Center | Fteoc.com

As an educational consultant for From the Earth Information & Resource Center, I spend a lot of time with patients and medical professionals on building the most appropriate "action plan" with cannabis therapies.

The two factors on building a medical condition and daily lifestyle. Functional products for patients are key whether it's for daily use or a patient with cancer who wants to attend their child’s wedding for the weekend.  

 As I sit on the board of two consumer protection organizations, I’m often asked by physicians what are my go to products.  Each week I will review products that cross my desk at From the Earth the #1 state licensed dispensary in Orange County CA.

From the desk of Mieko Perez:  

In this review I wanted to introduce you to a product, that is my "Go To" product for patients who are looking for an effective topical for muscular aliments and muscle soreness. Papa & Barley balm has proven to be one of the products that patients can depend on for full spectrum relief and provide a healthy cannabis conversation with your physician when you have exhausted all other treatment options due to side effects or medication compatibility.

From the desk of Mieko Perez:  

In this review I wanted to introduce you to a product that is an option for patients who would like a true CBD product.   In all 3 vastly different patient profiles, CBD Rabbit Oil proved to be effective with all ages, gender and lifestyles.  Recently, this product has become the "highlight" of my conversations with palliative care physicians looking for safe and effective alternative options to introduce to their patients who would not normally be open to cannabis products.
