On the Edge with Maria Valentino
After family members became very sick with life-threatening injuries and illnesses, Maria shares how she unearthed the phenomenal healing effects of endocannabinoid.
We recently met the gorgeous and brilliant Maria Valentino in Costa Rica, where she inspired us with her knowledge of plant-based medicinal products for beauty and well-being. She is truly on the cutting edge of endocannabinoid and medicinal mushroom research. Maria’s products not only feel and smell divine–they really work!
Maria Valentino is an entrepreneur, formulator and voice of the green beauty movement for conscious consumers. Utilizing her social media platform of 1.5 million followers, she educates and empowers her audience with her luxury approach to herbalism [plant-based healing] and the endocannabinoid system.
When Maria entered her teen years, she quickly realized that she was deathly allergic to all antibiotics and intolerant to preservatives, hormonal additives, dairy and many common foods. This discovery led to a natural, vegan and pharmaceutical-free lifestyle, with a mission to regulate her own homeostasis for optimal performance in everyday life.
I am creating a new standard. Wellness is a luxury that should be available to everyone.
After family members became very sick with life-threatening injuries and illnesses, Maria soon unearthed the phenomenal healing effects of cannabis. She learned that cannabis could be directly absorbed in targeted areas through transdermal delivery in order to benefit the entire body. Her cannabis research permeated into cancer studies, and she has been involved in all steps of cultivation from seed to extraction.
As a Pennsylvania native, the mushroom capital of the world, she fell in love with mycology very early on, and also incorporates mycelium compounds into formulations, diet and her everyday life.
Her goal as an advocate is to remove the stigma by spreading this incredible knowledge:
Billions of people are unaware of the serious damage caused by harmful products they purchase and use every single day. The skin is the largest organ of the body, so it became clear to me that the world needed an alternative to not only look and feel amazing, but heal them from the outside in.
From Maria’s Instagram:
“I am ecstatic to finally introduce my luxury botanical wellness products to the world. Now available online and in select stores! This collection is designed to encourage overall health and enhance natural beauty to help you become the best version of yourself. I am committed to creating honest, cutting-edge products with the highest quality. I personally created these formulas, which are made with only active premium botanical ingredients, and include a perfect blend of full spectrum CBD, synergy-boosting terpenes, the powerful Reishi mushroom and active plant cells.”
Having studied Reiki through master level, Maria came to love researching new modalities in healing, including the addition of sound and vibration. On the cutting-edge quest to help you become the best version of yourself, all MV products are handcrafted in a high vibrational environment with a combination of healing frequencies.
Being a botanical collection, she chose to work with 432 Hz, the harmonic intonation of nature, as well as 528 Hz, which is the same frequency of love, used to repair DNA and restore equilibrium. Each product is infused with this vibration in her laboratory during each production by hand.
Maria is on the cutting edge, and her products reflect her beautiful, authentic, and compassionate presence and genuine passion for making the world a healthier, more harmonic place.
