What We Do
We improve lives through Research, Education, and Advocacy. By funding and conducting Research, we learn more about cannabis and its applications. Education empowers consumers to select the best products for their individual needs, and informs healthcare professionals about options for their patients. Through Advocacy, we spread the truth about cannabis and expand access to those in need. Read more about What We Do here.
Because Quality of Life Matters!
Everyone has a right to the best quality of life possible. In many cases, cannabinoid therapy has improved life quality for those suffering from a variety of ailments. It may be as simple as a child smiling for the first time, or as momentous as cancer remission or seizure freedom. These five words guide every action at Realm of Caring, and inspire us to greater achievements.
The Realm of Caring Foundation was informally established by the Stanley Brothers, Paige Figi, and Heather Jackson. Paige's daughter, Charlotte, and Heather's son, Zaki, were the first two success stories using Charlotte's Web™ in early 2012. After receiving several inquiries from families seeking help around the world, the group recognized the need to create a formal organization to not only collect research and data on individuals using cannabis products, but to also educate and advocate about this often misunderstood form of therapy.
The Stanleys have since transitioned away from the Realm of Caring to focus their efforts on production and new product development. Paige has fulfilled a needed legislative role serving as Executive Director of Coalition for Access Now, a 501c4 organization committed to educating the public and lawmakers on the health benefits associated with natural therapies derived from cannabis for chronic health conditions. Heather is serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the Realm of Caring, a 501c3 entity.
The Realm of Caring Foundation was formally established on 8/13/13, and has received its 501c3 designation as a recognized non-profit entity. We continue with the same mission and vision that we always have. Our advocacy work has been featured in media outlets across the country including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, NBC, and two CNN specials hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
