This consists of anyone looking for more information about cannabinoid therapies
Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the principal constituent (or cannabinoid) of the cannabis plant and has psychoactive effects. Reported benefits of THC in cannabinoid therapy include pain relief, appetite stimulation, sleep aid, anti-nausea, anti-vomiting, and more. THC is available only in jurisdictions that have legalized it for medical or recreational purposes.
Cannabinoid therapy has been reported to be beneficial for a number of conditions which makes it a potential option for many. We have over 600 peer-reviewed research articles in our Research Library where you can learn more.
Realm of Caring assists pediatric and adult clients, as well as pets.
Two identical individuals with the same condition taking the same product can have two different outcomes or results, so it is difficult to suggest a condition-specific product. Therefore, this process may involve some trial and error to determine what is the right product or combination of products for you.
The best option to research specific medical conditions and different cannabinoids is to visit the Research Library where you’ll find over 600 peer-reviewed journal articles in relation to medical cannabis. You can enter in the appropriate keywords (i.e. diagnosis and cannabis/ CBD/ THC/ THC-A).
Realm of Caring does its best to rely on our collective data and guide you in getting started. There are many anecdotal stories that you can find on our client spotlight page.
There is extensive research on the safety and toxicology of cannabinoids and there are several studies that suggest that cannabinoids are well-tolerated and safe for humans at high doses. However, there can be potential drug interactions. In addition, there is not enough evidence to determine the absolute safety of using cannabis/hemp/CBD for special populations (i.e. pregnant/nursing, some psychiatric conditions,etc.) Give us a call to discuss in detail (719) 347-5400, option 1.
Once you determine a product, there are several ways to administer cannabis: sublingual, oral, topical, transdermal, vaporized, and more. For optimal results, we suggest you are as accurate and consistent as possible when administering any oil (i.e. using oral syringes). The amount that an individual takes in a day varies based upon weight, condition, and brain chemistry. Please visit the Dosing and Administration Guidelines for more information. We recommend scheduling a one-on-one with a Care Specialist in order to speak in-depth about your specific condition, call (719) 347-5400, option 1.
CBD derived from hemp (with less than 0.3% THC) can be purchased in select retail outlets as well as online. Please follow the links of our RoC Approved Product Lines to learn more. Medical cannabis products that contain more than 0.3% THC must be purchased from a medical or recreational dispensary.
CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC can be shipped nationally and in some cases internationally from the product company. Realm of Caring does not sell or distribute any products.
You are welcome to seek out other forms of high-CBD therapy besides the products we recommend. When doing so, be sure to connect with a manufacturer that can provide test results. Some important factors to consider are:
As laws vary from country to country, we suggest contacting either product manufacturers or authorities in your country or the country you may wish to visit.
Our Care Specialists may be able to locate a retailer that could sell products in a specific country
In 2019 the TSA confirmed travel within the United States with CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC are allowed. For more information visit the TSA’s website.
When traveling abroad, you will want to check the rules and regulations of the country you are traveling to. Even if CBD may be bought or taken into a country, the legal amount of THC allowed in CBD products can vary depending on which country you are in.
It is a possibility. This is not a cut and dry answer because CBD products have the potential of containing trace amounts of THC – the psychoactive chemical compound in the plant. THC can accumulate in the fat, even in trace quantities, and cause a positive result in a drug screening test.
It is important to note that CBD and/or THC may cross through the placenta and therefore fetal exposure risks can not be ruled out. There are currently no studies supporting the use of CBD and other cannabis products in pregnancy. There are studies concluding that high-THC cannabis use can have negative effects on the fetal developing brain and body. We encourage you to speak with a doctor or midwife for further advice.
