Potential Health CBD was created by two psychotherapists who had a clear vision of creating a premium CBD product. Dr. Annette Nunez and Maylene Johnson, LPC have both worked as licensed psychotherapists for over three decades combined. Through the years they have seen individuals experience negative side effects associated with prescribed medications and wanted to explore a holistic alternative. As psychotherapists they understand the importance mind, body, and soul working harmoniously together in which one cannot efficiently work with the other. Their mission is to not only provide education about CBD, but to increase awareness around mental health and offer tips and strategies that people can incorporate into their daily lives. The ultimate goal of Potential Health CBD is for everyone to reach their greatest potential in a natural and holistic way.

Maylene Johnson, LPC
Maylene Johnson, LPC is a License Professional Counselor with over 16 years of experience providing effective therapeutic strategies in helping children with autism and their families. She is the Clinical Director at Breakthrough Interventions in Denver, CO where she trains and supervises all senior staff, conducts assessments, and writes individualized treatment plans aimed to empower parents and their children to live successful and independent lives.
Maylene was trained in Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Floortime, and the Social Competence Inclusive Play (SCIP) Model. When treating her clients, she takes a multidisciplinary approach in which she incorporates several alternative forms of treatment such as CBD, nutrition, and other holistic therapies. Maylene’s therapeutic philosophy is based on the idea that parents and their children are continuously learning, experiencing, and “breaking through” life challenges. She believes that much like autism, life is a spectrum. Parents and their children are on a constant evolutionary journey needing to embrace their whole selves by not only caring for their mental needs, but for their physical, dietary, and emotional needs as well. Based on her many years of experience in working with children with autism and their families she feels that incorporating alternative approaches to therapy is not only a must but a necessity.
