Robin, Research & Product Development Specialist, Registered Pharmacist
Robin H. McDonald, RPh, is a registered pharmacist in Newport Beach, California. She received her B.S. from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy, in 1991. She has enjoyed many facets of her career over the last 31 years. Including her retail pharmacy practice, she also has been an independent pharmacist, compounding pharmacist and a regional Pharmacy scheduler for a small retail pharmacy company in Birmingham, Alabama. Her interest in the health benefits of CBD oil was piqued when she encountered one of her patients in San Clemente, California during her time with retail pharmacy. This particular patient presented with angioma tumors within her brain which brought on seizure activity anytime there was an increase in cranial blood pressure. This patient was extremely excited about CBD oil and how it eliminated her seizure activity completely. It was from that point forward that Robin knew that the possibilities of health benefits were endless using CBD oil. This fact fired up her research and expansion of the clinical knowledge of CBD oil and how it responds to the particular CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body.
To this day, Robin has semi-retired from retail pharmacy practice which allows her to devote dedicated time to research and development into the expanding forefront of CBD oil and its benefits. Robin is also dedicating research to a broad range of botanical benefits, including CBD, for skincare purposes. Robin enjoys living in Newport Beach with her loving husband, Bill.
