Dr. Chloe Weber is a doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and a board-certified and licensed acupuncturist and herbalist based in Boulder, CO. She is the co-founder of the wildly popular Radical Roots, a supplement company that combines the power of Chinese medicine with full-spectrum hemp to treat today’s most common conditions including stress, aging, and digestion.
Chloe's passion for public health and medicine was ignited by her diagnosis of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in high school and fueled by her search for holistic support for her son Remy, who has a rare genetic disorder causing global delays and epilepsy. Her work with Remy motivated her to find ways to help children with neuro-developmental issues and seizures, creating “Remy's Revenge.” The formula uses a unique and effective alchemical extraction technique called spagyrics that contains high-potency, full-spectrum plant extracts and combines the power of Eastern and Western herbal traditions to potentiate the actions of hemp.
Chloe is on a mission to help as many children and adults as she can by empowering them with her knowledge and expertise about the power of herbs.
