Mieko Hester-Perez is a Champion for Special Needs Families

Mieko Hester-Perez is a modern day warrior mom, a champion of special needs families. Every single day, her mission is to help families improve the quality of life for their loved ones through unconventional treatments and she has pledged to “leave no family behind.”

Just this past Sunday night, Mieko was presented with the Chalice Festival’s Industry Dedication Award for her tireless work helping families with special needs children to better understand medical cannabis. Drawing on 20 years of legal experience, 15 years of special education knowledge, ongoing research, and her personal experiences navigating through treatment options for her own son, Mieko continues to help families throughout the world achieve positive results with cannabis.

Not your typical cannabis activist

Now, it should be mentioned, Mieko Hester-Perez is not your typical cannabis activist. She doesn’t wear tie-dye, wasn’t raised by hippie parents, and doesn’t use cannabis herself. Quite the contrary: she comes from a very conservative family that includes a long line of law enforcement. “I know I’m an unlikely cannabis advocate,” Mieko says, “being raised in South Orange County among other conservative constituents.”

Because of her professionalism and reliability, physicians who don’t normally recommend cannabis call Mieko to consult with patients’ families who are considering cannabis when all other treatments have failed. She understands and sympathizes with these families because she’s been in their shoes: before trying cannabis as a treatment, her son Joey had been on over 14 different experimental medications that did not work. Secondary to his autism, Joey was diagnosed with anorexia and malnutrition and it was Mieko’s extensive research into how to get him to eat that led her to bake a few batches of gluten-free cannabis edibles for her son. 

Not only did the cannabis edibles successfully improve Joey’s appetite, which led to improved nutrition and healthy growth, Mieko also noticed he began making eye contact on a more consistent basis, he had less aggression and became more productive in educational and home settings.

February 19, 2021   |   Executive Producer of Cannabis Content, Infused Digital Mieko Hester-Perez

High Jinx Host Adam Ill and Co-Host Angela Mazzanti sat down with Ricky Williams professional NFL player and got to hear how cannabis impacted his life.

At Infused Digital, you never know who you will run into at the studio, as we continue to enforce covid mask polices, the soft spoken voices of giants can’t stay hidden in our hallways. If, you have ever wanted to “feel” the true definition of being “high off of life” Mr. Williams, will not disappoint you. His aura is felt as soon as he walks in the door and his humbleness right down to his Vans footwear will let you know – he’s either going to be “spot on” with your astrology chart or challenge you on a gaming console of his choice…or both.

It was a pleasure to meet Ricky Williams, the man behind RW Wellness Herbal. Let’s talk about High Jinx, meeting Mr. Williams

High Jinx was filmed at Cannabis Capitol, a division of Infused Digital with host Adam Ill and Co-Host Angela Mazzanti both sat down with Ricky Williams ( @williams ) professional NFL player and got to hear how cannabis impacted his life.
