My Pathway to Being Pain-Free with CBD

This blog was written by Debra Dullaghan, founder of 55plus.


As the population ages, the pursuit of holistic well-being among older adults has become more prevalent than ever. My own interest was piqued in 2015 with my experience dealing with an increase of chronic pain issues stemming from my neck that affected all areas of my body. Turning to cannabis, I visited countless dispensaries in search of THC-free CBD but found the process frustrating and challenging. All of the products had at least a trace of THC, which always ended up making me feel stoned. 


After being given a sample of Hemp CBD with 0.0% THC the benefits were immediate. I was symptom-free and embarked on a mission to research and gain a better understanding of the Endocannabinoid System. 


A noteworthy trend I noticed was the increasing adoption of alternative medicine, with a particular focus on CBD and cannabis-derived products. This trend emerged as a promising solution for various age-related health issues such as: chronic pain, arthritis, inflammation, and sleep disorders. Additionally, CBD was popular for its potential role in promoting mental well-being and reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression, common issues that I constantly see among older adults. 


I decided to do a deep dive into the research and found various studies indicating that CBD possessed non-intoxicating, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anxiolytic properties, making it an appealing option for older adults, like myself, seeking relief without the drawbacks of conventional medications that often come with unwanted side effects and risks.


According to a survey conducted by Forbes Health, 49% of participants aged 58–76 years old use CBD. These numbers speak to a fervent search for alternative medicines among the older demographic.


My Take on CBD Consumption Methods and Bioavailability


In my own exploration of the industry, I found a confusingly diverse range of products, including tinctures, soft gels, gummies, and topical solutions with so many options including full-spectrum, broad spectrum, 0.0% THC etc. 


This led to the inspiration to create my own company, 55plus CBD, which attempts to make CBD products accessible, affordable and easy to understand with simple labeling and succinct messaging surrounding our premium product lineups. Our products are specifically tailored to suit the preferences and requirements of older individuals. While the industry is still confusing, the right products make incorporating CBD into daily routines seamless. 


As I dug deeper I discovered many interesting things regarding the effectiveness and make up of CBD products. Bioavailability, a lesser known aspect of CBD consumption, is defined as the degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into the bloodstream leading to an overall improvement in effectiveness. This is important to understand because different products have different bioavailability. 


As many of us have experienced, aging bodies experience changes in metabolism and digestive efficiency, affecting the absorption of cannabinoids. Innovations in product formulations have led to increased bioavailability and effectiveness. As an example, 55plus nanoemulsion softgels have four times the bioavailability of a Gummy because of the way it is absorbed in the system, potentially making it more effective.


My View on Sourcing the Best CBD Products


In my own experience with exploring the CBD industry, I found that identifying the source and quality of CBD products was essential for ensuring safety and effectiveness. High-quality CBD is always derived from organically grown hemp, free from pesticides and harmful chemicals. 


I began to find it crucial to look for products with clear, transparent labeling that includes access to third-party lab testing results. These lab tests (Certificates of Analysis) verify the CBD content and screen for contaminants like heavy metals, molds, and pesticides. Understanding these distinctions helped me avoid ineffective or potentially harmful products.


Simplifying CBD with Education


Having a little over three years in the industry now, the biggest hurdle has been the many misconceptions and a lack of knowledge about the benefits and uses of CBD. These misconceptions can and have hindered its acceptance amongst older adults. 


With so many confusing and negative experiences in the oversaturated CBD market, I created 55plus CBD with the intent to center around educating older demographics on CBD and all of its many benefits. We are not alone as a few other companies are doing their part to close the public information gap and simplify CBD like our friends at Realm of Caring.


At 55plus, our education program highlights CBD’s safety profile, its distinction from THC-containing products, and offers insight on current research and studies around its efficacy for common ailments. The importance of CBD and its supplemental use in holistic well-being cannot be overstated.

Federal Raid Impacts CARE Medicinal Cannabis Farm and Disrupts Patient Access

Blog Education Featured Stories

Ask the Patient

On May 14, 2021 a bipartisan bill was introduced in the Colorado House to more strictly regulate high-potency THC products, imposing barriers to access for medical consumers as well as negatively affecting recreational buyers and cannabis businesses in Colorado. The detrimental language of the bill unfairly targets medical cannabis patients, medical cannabis doctors and clinics, and cannabis dispensaries in the state. The Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate both signed this bill on June 23, 2021 and Governor Polis signed on June 24, 2021. 


There were great efforts put in place to oppose the bill, to delay implementation, and to sue the state challenging 25 significant breaches to the Constitution of the State of Colorado, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Now, nearly one year since the bill was signed, we have seen the damage it has caused. 


This bill has turned doctors away from medical cannabis for fear of breaking five laws and losing their DEA license. Businesses have been forced to close and patients were left completely out of the conversation that affects their right to privacy and access to medicine. 


On July 14, 2022 at 5pm MT, Realm of Caring will be hosting an “Ask the Patient” webinar that anyone can join. We will begin this webinar by previewing a segment of NOVA’s The Cannabis Question, looking at the social acceptance of cannabis. Following, we will be speaking directly with the individuals who have suffered harmful consequences that came from this specific bill, HB21-1317.  



This does not just affect Colorado. As a leading example of how legalized cannabis can be carried out professionally and responsibly, Colorado also serves as an example of how those very rights can be chipped away with regressive policies that sail through the legislature. We are witnessing a grim foreshadowing. 

We encourage you to write in your questions to and, no matter where you reside, join us with this registration link. Continue reading for more detailed information on what this act requires. 


For a medical patient in the state to be approved for a medical cannabis card, this act requires


  • A full assessment of the patient’s medical history, to include their mental health history;
  • The maximum THC potency level recommended by the physician;
  • The recommended product and directions for use;
  • The daily authorized quantity. 


For medical patients ages 18 to 20 years old, this act requires:


  • Two physicians from different medical practices to diagnose the patient after having in-person consultations where one physician must provide written documentation specifying the condition and benefit of medical cannabis;
  • The patient attends follow-up appointments every 6 months after the initial visit with one of the physicians unless the patient is homebound.


This act also requires:


  • A report to be created from emergency room and hospital discharge data of patients who presented with “conditions or a diagnosis that reflects marijuana use”;
  • Coroners to test for the presence and quantity of THC in each case of a non-natural death and make recommendations;
  • Medical cannabis dispensaries to immediately record transactions to monitor patient data for identifying discrepancies with daily purchase limits and potency authorizations;
  • Limitations on the amount of cannabis concentrate that a patient can purchase in one day to 8 grams, with a 2 gram daily limit to those 18 to 20 years old. 
  • Limitations on the amount of retail cannabis concentrate sold to 8 grams; 
  • A tangible educational resource regarding the use of regulated cannabis concentrate to be distributed to purchasers. 


This act appropriated the following budget for the 2021-2022 fiscal year: 


  • $4,000,000 from the marijuana tax cash fund to the department of higher education for use by the Colorado school of public health and any unexpended money from the appropriation is further appropriated to the department for the same purpose;
  • $541,826 to the department of public health and environment for use by the center for health and environmental information: $265,656 of the appropriation is from the general fund and is $276,170 from the medical marijuana program cash fund;
  • $50,000 from the general fund to the department of public health and environment for use by disease control and public health response;
  • $255,167 from the marijuana cash fund to the department of revenue to implement the act;
  • $95,706 and allocates 0.5 FTE to the department of law from reappropriated funds from the department of revenue; and
  • $2,000,000 from the first time drunk driving offender account to the department of transportation.

How CBD Brought Instant Relief to My Son’s Hives

An estimated 1 in 5 people will experience hives, also known as urticaria, at some point in their lives. A multitude of situations and substances can trigger the skin rash, which often looks like raised itchy bumps, either red or skin-colored. The affected area can range from a few millimeters to the size of a hand. There are presently two different types of hives doctors will diagnose:


  • Acute urticaria: the rash clears completely within six weeks
  • Chronic urticaria: occur almost daily for more than six weeks


When urticaria appears, itching, burning, and stinging can affect any part of the body, including the face, tongue, ears, and large areas of skin. In extreme cases, it can also cause joint pain, fever, and digestive problems. 


Annelyn is a busy mom with two teenagers. Her oldest son came home with a small itchy rash on his neck after skiing. She tried OTC topical creams to no avail, and after a few days the rash began to spread around her son’s neck. She came to learn that the rash was in fact hives, and it continued to worsen and spread. Annelyn’s son was miserable, until she discovered Stratos SOOTHE 1:1 Topical CBD:THC Salve. We chatted with her about the relief her family was able to experience with the help of cannabinoid treatment.


ROC: What occurred in your life to make you want to try CBD as an option? 


A: After over a week of my son being miserable from his spreading hives, I tried CBD as a treatment.


ROC: What products have you used that you found relief from? 


A: I tried Stratos SOOTHE 1:1 and instantly my son’s neck felt cooler and not itchy. Within a day his hives started to recede and a couple of days later they were almost gone. 


ROC: What regimen are you currently following? Did you see the results right away?


A: We applied when needed and felt the results immediately. 


ROC: Did you experience any side effects?


A: No.


ROC: What is one piece of advice you’d give to someone who is just starting to use cannabis medicinally for the first time? 

A: Give it a try because it works.


ROC: How would you describe cannabinoid therapy using one word?


A: Amazing!


ROC: What is one stigma about cannabis that you wish you could change? 


A: The bad reputation throughout history. 


Annelyn’s story is one of many where people are finding relief using CBD treatment for a variety of ailments, and we thank her for sharing her story. Cannabidiol has been proven to help reduce inflammation, regulate our immune system, relieve symptoms of anxiety & depression, improve quality of life, and so much more! At Realm of Caring we are proud to support brands like Stratos, who commit to providing quality CBD and THC products that deliver a rapid onset of positive effects, every time.

6 People Share: How Cannabis & CBD Helped Me Sleep

This blog was written and submitted by our friends at Stratos


Are you exhausted in the morning?


According to WebMD, sleep deprivation can have serious effects on the body. Memory recall is degraded, the ability to learn and make sound judgments is impaired, the heart may beat faster than normal, your mood can take a big dive, and overall, you can feel off.


The body needs sleep to rest, rejuvenate and heal. The National Institute of Health suggests that most average adults need about 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night.


Stratos, one of a handful of brands to receive the Realm of Caring Seal of Approval, has had countless customers reach out to share their experiences in achieving more restful, deep sleep by incorporating cannabis and CBD into their regimen:


After trying sleeping tea and melatonin I’ve only been able to get about 3 hours of sleep per night. Thanks to your medical formula Sleep Tablets, I’m able to get 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Thank You!



As a disabled veteran, I have pain and behavior issues that I can treat during the day. At night, Stratos helps sleep issues and helps me stay asleep longer and in a deeper sleep, thus helping me feel more rested. 



At 42, I started struggling with sleep issues. The pharma drugs made my bladder inflamed, so I’d fall asleep but then awaken 6 – 8 times a night straining to urinate. After 13 years of this, I was told by a close relative to try cannabis. I hemmed and hawed but they finally they talked me into it. 1 or 2 puffs of a heavy Indica and I fell asleep.  It tended to work for about 5 hours but it changed my thinking. A few months later I was given a bottle of Sleep Tablets to try.  I took 1/2 of a 10mg tablet. That night, I slept for 9 hours without waking up to pee. That was 4 years ago. I only use these products 5-6 nights a week. It has changed my life.  



The Renew 2:1 Tincture has become my current medication for all of my pain and sleeping issues. I struggle with unbearable muscle aches and spasms from a pinched nerve and past trauma. It was impossible to sleep due to this pain. Now that I use the Renew every night I am finally able to sleep through the entire night without waking due to pain. The Renew tincture has helped me manage my sleep and pain in ways I thought would be impossible. I can’t thank you enough for creating such a life changing product.



Great, thank you! The Sleep 1:1 Tincture didn’t put me to sleep right away (I have insomnia, so that’s why I’m interested in this type of product), but once I fell asleep, I slept so deeply throughout the entire night. I usually wake up a ton throughout the night so this was very helpful! 



I really like your Sleep 1:1 Tincture as far as it helps me fall asleep and stay asleep. If I get up in the middle of the night, it allows me to go right back to sleep. Right after I take it, give me between 15-30 minutes. I don’t go to sleep without it.

CBD Helped My Neuropathy After Breast Cancer and Gave Me My Life Back

This blog was written by Cathe and submitted by our friends at Stratos. 


I am 63 years old. Four years ago breast cancer and the medications I needed to fight that battle, mixed with some aging, were not kind to my body. After my treatments, I was left with feet that were in unbelievable constant pain. My feet felt like they were constantly on fire. The burning pain never went away, and was especially challenging in bed when the nerve pain went up higher and higher. Standing in lines like at the post office or at the grocery store were no longer possible. My passion for travel, and love of movement and just walking were totally gone, as was golf and any hiking. 


I tried everything. Friends sent me salves and numerous different ideas constantly. I did serious attempts to relieve the pain with reflexology, acupuncture, even using prescribed medications, Advil, meditation, physical therapy and tequila. For me, getting the courage to go to a dispensary was a big deal, as THC does not really agree with me and never has. The recommendation of Stratos CBD 15:1 Tablets (5mg CBD + 0.33mg THC per tablet) was a desperate attempt to get some kind of quality back into my life. I went to a few lectures on CBD and tried other products but I noticed nothing. I was seriously skeptical. 


Both of my sons were the true persistent ones who kept telling me to try a combo of THC and CBD. My one son knew the dispensary owner and staff in our town and started asking them what they would recommend for me. Then he researched Stratos’ reputation. He knew I was not going to just ” smoke pot” or take just anything. 


At first, after I began taking the tablets, I felt nothing different. I think it was cumulative. Sadly, it took a physical therapist to recognize what I had started to take for granted. He pointed out that I was walking and standing after two pretty bad years. I began this product around June of 2017 and by the next November it was pointed out to me that I had started LIVING and walking, doing small hikes again. This product has me able to walk for up to 20,000 steps on some days and has been one key tool in my toolchest fighting neuropathy. Again, I believe for me it was a cumulative effect, and slowly the product tamed my nerves. I have no idea what happened, but I am never stopping. I am a Stratos lifer. 


I take one tablet later in the morning and some days need to take two. I often forget the afternoon dose, but I am holding in a good pattern and am very happy to say I am a believer. I never seem to need Advil, as headache days are relieved by the same dose of the 15:1. If the pain is greater, I double up. 


Sleep is also less painful and slightly easier as I do not have the nerve pain shooting up my legs when I relax and go horizontal. So now that I am open minded (please laugh at this), I am currently experimenting with the Stratos Sleep 1:1 Tincture which the dispensary suggested. Being a lightweight, I start low and go slow. I think it might be working as well. I might have found another product that can help me. 


To all, yes, I am sincerely grateful for your company and products which is why I asked at the dispensary how to write and say THANK YOU to Stratos. Here is a photo taken of me in an Apple Class, we were recording a dance. Imagine that!!! I still have my handicap parking pass but I am NOT using it.

How CBD Helped Us with Stroke, Arthritis & Dementia

This content is from our friends at Stratos.

According to the CDC, approximately 54 million people in the U.S. have arthritis. The National Institute on Aging states that 5.7 million people in the U.S. live with dementia. And the CDC also calculates that 795,000 people per year experience a stroke.

These are all major medical issues, and while the importance of traditional medicine cannot be understated, there are also alternative ways to manage the ailments associated with each illness while supporting the traditional approach. Two women share details of how CBD (and even a little THC) has helped with tremors, pain, memory, and more.

Stratos has helped me with tremors from my hemorrhagic stroke and pain from osteoarthritis. I had a massive hemorrhagic stroke in August of 2016, then tried the Stratos CBD 12 mg in December of 2016 on the recommendation of my granddaughter who is a nurse. 

The relief from my tremors was almost instant and has helped me walk and do intensive PT without fear of falling from the tremors on my left side. As a side benefit, it has helped my pain from arthritis in my hands, which further helps me enjoy doing things like playing cards, and helps me continue to be independent by doing my own hair and putting makeup on. 

I do take the Stratos CBD 25 mg pills now as I was having to take two doses of the 12 mg when I was doing PT or going out with friends or family. I just had my 78th birthday and am enjoying life in spite of my limitations.

Four years ago, my mother was diagnosed with early-onset dementia. As is common with the disease, she has progressively gotten worse. On May 10th, 2019 after numerous falls, we took her to the doctor (P.A.). At this appointment, we had to use a wheelchair to get her into the examining room and cognitively she was slow and her speech was so bad she was pretty much incoherent. The P.A. informed me and my father that we were getting close to having to make a tough decision. 

In desperation, on May 15, when I was called out yet again because she had fallen, I started my mother on Stratos 15:1, which includes 5mg CBD and 0.33mg THC per tablet. On the afternoon (lunchtime) of May 15th my mother took her first pill of Stratos 15:1 and has since been taking one pill per day with lunch.

I will be honest with you that I really did not have any expectations that cannabis would help my mother. My goal was to make her more comfortable and hopefully, less depressed and angry. 

What has happened is a miracle and one that I want to share. Stratos not only helped to stabilize my mother, but it seems to be reversing the damage to her brain caused by dementia. I am keeping a detailed journal of her progress:

May 15 – Approximately two hours after the first dose, she is calm and seems happier. Sitting in the sunroom with my father. 

May 16 – Speech is more confident and loud. She corrected her own word-finding errors.  

May 17 – Talking is more clear and confident. No apparent word-finding issues. 

May 18 – Another good day, very clear speech, no lucid dreams or hallucinations upon waking. Again self-corrected her word-finding errors. 

May 19 – She informs me that something has changed, but she is not sure what. She says about two days ago she felt like she woke up and that she was an adult. She says she feels like herself again. No more shaking of her hands. Clear eyes, sitting upright, self-aware.

These are but a few examples of how she is doing. We are so amazed at her improvement it is scary. She has started recalling stories that she had forgotten and can now do activities such as embroidery that she could no longer do because she could not remember how to do it. She even looks younger and no longer has a vacant look in her eyes. 
I, myself, take Stratos 15:1 as prevention for dementia.


How Cannabis and CBD Helped Me Win My Battle with Addiction

This story was submitted from our friends at Stratos


My name is Marc Romera and I’m excited to share my testimony with hopes that it touches someone’s life and alters the direction of their future. My story includes prior drug use, the benefits of Stratos and the obstacles I faced along the way.


I was born in Tampa, Florida and was raised in Land O’Lakes like any other kid my age. I played sports, learned how to play instruments, and dealt with the constant pressure of always trying to “fit in” or be accepted. Around middle school I noticed I was different; rather, that be my artistic abilities, athletic talents, and gifts as a musician. The more people who noticed these qualities about me, the more I challenged myself to be the best I could be. This included not just being on the soccer team, but being the captain. Drawing in my room for hours upon hours, just to give the drawing away to someone as a gift. Playing music in the youth band at church, just so my friends would admire me. It eventually became an expectation to wear a certain brand of clothing, talk a certain way, and walk a particular walk so my family would accept me and more people would like me.


With the constant expectations I made for myself, came an anxiety disorder I began to face. I started to have overwhelming thoughts about how I looked, if people liked me and if my family actually loved me. I felt pressure to always be winning and if I lost I would beat myself up over it until I was severely depressed. I would train harder than any other athlete, but soon found myself trying to show off or one up everyone around me, whether that be in the classroom, at school, or at that keg stand at the Saturday night homecoming party.


It was this mindset that led me to a group of friends where doing drugs became a social status. It gave me popularity and a way to keep going, when the “going gets rough”. No longer did I have to worry about having energy for my morning practices. When it was time to relax and repair my muscles, I had something that could fix that In seconds. When I felt sad or had anxiety, there was always something I could do because I found out how to acquire prescription pills for any situation I faced.


No longer did I stress or care about the bullies I encountered. By numbing out on Xanax throughout the day, I became unfazed by people’s comments which no longer mattered. If I took enough Aderall before games, I would remain focused and typically win; keeping my loved ones happy long enough to not notice my substance abuse. Then when I needed to crash, I would consume muscle relaxers so my body would slow down. I added in alcohol on the weekends, followed by smoking marijuana and using painkillers to take away any fatigue.


Several friends died around me due to accidental overdoses or driving while intoxicated. I found myself in a downward spiral and soon called my parents for help and wanted to get sober. At this point in my life, I was using a lot of street drugs on top of prescribed medications and still drinking whenever there was a party. While trying to face severe withdrawal it became clear I needed to make a dramatic change, not only in my personal habits, but my circumstances. 


I decided to move out of Florida to get my life together. So, I moved in with a friend in Fort Collins, Colorado where I learned about the benefits of Medical Marijuana. It was in a search for CBD and a product to help with the withdrawal symptoms I was having, that I stumbled across Stratos. Stratos was the ideal product for me because it was pill shaped, and easy to replace a standard prescription pill with. It gave my mind an opportunity to see a cannabis replacement for the narcotics I was consuming. Soon I was taking Stratos “Energy” pills for my morning runs instead of my Adderall, which gave me the motivation to get up every day without the crash afterward. I would go about my day taking a “CBD 1:1” Stratos pill, which helped with social anxiety and seizures during my work hours. My evenings were the hardest because I was prone to consuming pain-killers or muscle relaxers to get through the night without waking up. Due to years of sports and injuries, I had built up a pretty severe evening habit;  however, I was able to overcome those addictions by taking Stratos “Sleep” tablets mixed with their High CBD, low THC product (15:1) which helped with my overwhelming fatigue. The interesting thing I have come to learn about Cannabis is that it plugs into entirely different receptors than the narcotics I was consuming. My mind thought this was a healthier “replacement”. My body then began to reset with the new regimen. 


6 years later, I am sober of all prescription medications and narcotics alike. I remain a healthy individual now, eating the right foods, exercising and still taking Stratos tablets as needed. I am now a father of two children, currently enrolled in barber school, and actively involved in my church’s youth ministry. My relationship with God has become central to my life again. 


I share my story in marijuana events all over Colorado and consider myself a “Canna-Vangelist”. I remain hopeful that one day Doctors will feel the freedom to recommend the best things they can, given the circumstances, and that includes cannabis. I’ve heard a lot of stories about how marijuana saved the lives of people who have struggled with addictions.  I believe them, but my story is slightly different because Stratos, specifically, saved mine. 


Realm of Caring has awarded Stratos products with the Seal of Approval, a distinction given only to a small select group of product manufacturers.




RoC Partnered with Charlotte’s Web CBD to give away $1 million in products

Over the past month or so, we partnered with Charlotte’s Web over to give away free Charlotte’s Web™ products to the Realm of Caring community. 

The results have absolutely blown us away. Thanks to the generosity of our friends at Charlotte’s Web, we were able to give away $1 million worth of product to the members of our community who needed it most! Nothing makes us happier than being able to help others. We received wonderful feedback from members of the Realm of Caring community, who were all immensely grateful to Charlotte’s Web for their generous gift. 

“Thank you so very much for sharing this coupon code with us,” says RoC community member Kelly. “Our son experiences focal seizures that are as of yet uncontrolled.  He received a diagnosis of epilepsy at two years old, but we suspect he was having seizures from birth that were difficult to identify.  Numerous medicines have not stopped his seizures.  We have found that Charlotte’s Web CBD oil helps to reduce the frequency, duration, and magnitude of his seizures.  I’m sure we are not the only parents who feel conflicted about being thankful for this offer, while at the same time sharing in the grief over the loss of Charlotte Figi.  We are thankful for this gift.  Charlotte is remembered in our family, and I believe that her spirit lives on in, and watches over children like our son.”

“I just want to say thank you so much for sending me the CBD oil. It helps with my pain, inflammation and insomnia so much and I know that’s crucial for my healing . I am speechless. Your generosity is so very much appreciated! Paying out-of-pocket for my natural cancer cure has been a heavy burden on my husband and I. We spent over $6000 in the last six weeks. Dipping into our retirement funds at this stage in our life has been scary. Amazing to see how our life savings can dwindle so fast. But your act of kindness here brought me to tears as it is right now just writing this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you do ️. I hope someday in the near future I can pay it forward.” – Carol

“My name is Kristie (though, I go by Kaalyn, if you’d rather use that — it’s how most people know me), and I’m a 32yo wheelchair user with a constellation of disabilities. One of those includes a mutation on the SCN9A gene, a sister gene to what caused Charlotte’s Dravet Syndrome. I have always felt so close to and protective of her, and it’s no surprise Charlotte’s Web was the only brand of CBD that could calm my myoclonic body and the progression of my seizures. I was hit very hard but Charlotte’s passing, but the added impact of the pandemic on my medical care, my overall health and my struggle in poverty couldn’t be understated. So, when I saw CW teaming up with RoC to gift CBD, I nearly cried at just the *possibility* of help. When I got the email saying an entire large bottle of their 50mg dose was granted to me, I legitimately cried. When it came to the door, I cried again — tears of relief, grieving and gratitude.”

“This has been an irreplaceable light in the midst of mourning and my declining health. I can’t say enough how indebted and grateful I am to you all. The loss of Charlotte has left a huge hole, but the countless lives she’s saved, and thus the sheer number of candles that get to be lit in her wake, is enough to make the entire globe glow. Thank you.” – Kaalyn

Dear ROC,

“I just wanted to express my appreciation for the coupon you sent me for free product from Charlotte’s Web.  We purchase the 100 ml. original formula for our son, monthly and I have lost my job due to the virus.  Thank you so much for the free product.  It is wonderful to know we won’t have to pay out of pocket for his CBD this month. Thank you.”  – Ruth

“As an avid trail runner with a constant search for routes with maximal elevation gain, I started to notice minor aches in my ankles and lower back. 6 weeks into implementing Charlotte’s Web into my daily routine and these aches have subsided due to the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. This was the reason I decided to give CBD a try and it has made a noticeable difference. My anxiety levels have also dropped a considerable amount. Although I have only been using Charlotte’s Web for 6 weeks, I see it remaining in my daily regimen for life. I saw the link for a free bottle of original from Realm of Caring and just received it. Thank you! Happy trails.” – Marcus

The generosity of our friends at Charlotte’s Web helped provide comfort and care to people across the nation, from all walks of life. From helping control seizures to relieving chronic joint pain to providing a natural alternative to other cancer treatments, we were overwhelmed by the outpouring of emotion and gratitude shared by members of our community. Everyone at Realm of Caring feels incredibly lucky to have played some part in getting these products to those who need them most.

We thank you all for your support, and look forward to a continued partnership with Charlotte’s Web. Together, we’re making a difference.
