There's Always an Alternative

Laura Fuentes

Laura Fuentes is at the foundation of all that is Green Roads Wellness. As a compounding pharmacist with over 24 years of experience, Laura has a unique understanding of how to merge traditional pharmacological methodology with CBD to create the purest and most potent CBD products on the market. 

After years in the retail pharmacy space, Laura noticed a tremendous incline in patients with drug addiction.  She experienced people coming in with spouses and children trying to trick her into giving them more and more narcotics (opioids).  She encountered story after story of how “their pills fell in the toilet”, “they were robbed”, or “they never received enough pills in their prescription”.  Laura witnessed a steady decline in patients week after week, but soon realized she could no longer sit back and watch this epidemic unfold. 

In 2013, Laura was approached by one of the founders of Green Roads who introduced her to the benefits of CBD.  Laura started doing her research and found a significant amount of studies that showcased the possible effectiveness of CBD in many areas, with pain being at the forefront. At this point, Laura decided to create a few all natural products infused with 99% pure CBD and test them on patients suffering from drug addiction.  The results were staggering.  She witnessed first-hand how CBD positively impacted these patients and how it provided their body the balance it needed to restore their overall health.

Laura has vowed to no longer sit by and watch as patients suffer from “polypharmacy” because BIG Pharma encourages it.  She is now committed to delivering a healthy alternative to patients all over the world.

Laura has been married to her high school sweetheart for almost 28 years and they have two amazing children.  She has just started hot yoga classes and loves it for the relaxation and mental calmness it provides.
