Nicole Davidsohn was born in Los Angeles, CA. She grew up the youngest of 4, becoming the first in her family to attend college at Antelope Valley Community College before transferring to UC Irvine on a full academic scholarship. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Social Behavior in 2011 and shortly after achieved her national certifications in personal training and nutrition consulting from NASM. In 2015, she graduated Oaksterdam University's Advanced Seminar before moving west to start Eva with Dane Kemp. They opened the first ever 100% comprehensively-lab-tested cannabis delivery. Dane saw a gap in the industry where there were no dispensaries with a high quality menu, or 100% safe supply for people sick like Nicole. They set out to be the first, setting the bar for safe medicine, honesty, and transparency in the cannabis industry with Eva. After a conversation with Dr. William Courtney, Nicole discovered that raw cannabis juice could heal her traumatic brain injury, while decreasing overall body inflammation. Her post concussion syndrome that she had for almost a year subsided in only 6 weeks after drinking the juice. The juice helped Nicole begin managing her autoimmune disease, Ulcerative Colitis, without the use of expensive pharmaceuticals. Nicole is allergic to Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and is obligated to use herbal medicine to manage pain and other symptoms.View the profile

Text Oliver concentrates, at least three times before we even go into the formulation process into the production and then we're testing the final 00:00 products and they were we're setting some aside out of each batsman ever doing self to bility test on them down the road as well to determine is 00:07 everything staying stable in the product, you know, 18 months 24 months down the line. I hundred percent would agree with that. I would 00:17 also say with the last testing and she said to make sure that you test it and check your really pay attention 00:27
to the milligrams per gram and the percentage and what ingredients door in fusing it into because that's also going to change it. What if 00:36 what if you are infused with something that is making it less stable. So make sure that you don't just test the Conte like the concentrator the extra 00:46 but actually after your after you formulated make sure tested make sure that it didn't change because like 10 mg or 25 00:55 mg of your you know, your oil or whatever but then whatever you mix it with hitch is it actually changed it or destabilize another thing as 01:05
heat? Time and light and pressure will change cannabinoid. So your packaging needs to 01:14 not allow any heat like that the position or whatever you're putting it on leave it in your trunk in a car, you know the time again that's like the 01:23 shelf-stable add task and get tested at 3 months 6 months 18 months. However long you think you know, your shelf stability is pressure making sure 01:33 that it's not getting crushed in some particular way. That's destabilizing the molecules. very good question question 01:41
