Heather Kreider, Hempfield Botanicals
Heather Kreider, co-owner (along with her husband, Nathan) of Makes Scents Natural Spa Line and Hempfield Botanicals, has lived and breathed the spa and wellness industry for over 25 years. Her credentials include post-graduate certification in Advanced Skincare at the International Dermal Institute and experience as an esthetician specializing in European skincare. Heather also is a licensed Registered Nurse and Cannabis Educator. As a chronic pain sufferer, related to spine issues and migraines, Heather knows first-hand how cannabis can help patients live a happier, healthier life. She is an MMJ card holder in PA and strives to break the stigma that cannabis users are “a bunch of burnouts.” Heather helps patients navigate the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card, working with dispensaries, and determining the medical marijuana formulations and application methods that will best target the symptoms they’re experiencing. Her goal is to alleviate the gap in patient education by helping individuals understand the different types of cannabinoids, terpenes, and ways to consume medical marijuana. She also helps guide patients in how to safely administer the products they purchase.
