Charlie Piermarini, PA-C, MSPAS, MS, MPH
Charlie Piermarini has had a passion for medicine and people. During the summers, while an undergrad at The University of Arizona, he worked as an EMT at a summer camp serving both children and adults with special needs.
Through these life-changing experiences, he knew he had to pursue his passion for medicine. He continued his education and graduated with a master’s degree in Physiology from The University of Arizona. He was able to publish his thesis paper in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology.
He then attended the Touro University of California, where he completed a dual Master’s of Science in Physician Assistant Science (MSPAS) and Public Health (MPH). He moved back to Arizona, where he practiced family medicine and then moved into pain management.
He also completed both the Medical Marijuana 411’s Medical Professional Cannabis Certification and The Healer Certification for Medical Professionals to further his knowledge about Cannabis. He continues to stay up to date with current research to make sure his patients are getting the best results.
While practicing pain management, he noticed an increase in the use of CBD with his patients. Some were getting benefits, and some were positive for THC when the bottle stated 0% THC, indicating either incorrect labeling or the wrong products.
After years of research and experience, he decided to start Restorative CBD to ensure his patients had quality Hemp-based CBD products he could trust. He is the author of a letter to the editor of The Pain and Therapy Journal regarding the need for more quality CBD products.

Nashaye “Shaye” Bowser
Nashaye “Shaye” Bowser, our infusion expert, graduated high school with a chef certification from high school. While she specializes in baking, it’s nothing in the kitchen she can’t infuse.
In April 2018, Shaye was involved in a car accident that left her in the hospital for about two weeks with every bone broken in her right foot, fractured her ankle, bruised lungs, and a fractured right eye socket.
With a heavy dislike for pain meds, Shaye was introduced to CBD gummies, which she realized not only helped with the pain but also sleeping.
Seeing how CBD helped her with pain, healing, sleeping, and anxiety, Shaye started infusing several things in the kitchen, testing different methods and recipes.
Started Sweet Nothings by Shaye in 2016. Attitude Adjustments RVA was born in 2019.
She was a special vendor at Pharrell Williams' "Something in the Water" event!!
She is looking forward to helping others create fun and exciting ways to enjoy CBD in the kitchen.
