The Realm Cares Financial Assistance Program (Realm Cares Program) will begin accepting applications soon. Something that has always been important to the Realm of Caring (RoC) is helping to lighten our clients’ financial burden. In the past RoC has been able do this by working with CW Botanicals and Stanley Brothers Social Enterprises to offer a discounted price on Charlotte’s Web products. We have also had the wonderful opportunity to present financial grants to clients that encounter financial hardship whenever the funds are available. One of RoC’s goals has always been to create an official program where clients can apply to participate in that will ensure a set period of time that they will receive financial grants to reduce the financial stress that they may be dealing with due to their current circumstances. The entire Realm of Caring organization is excited that the Realm Cares™ program is finally becoming a reality. It is our belief that by implementing such programs the people we serve will be able to focus on their health and ultimately a better quality of life.

CARERS Act Public Statement

Realm of Caring is encouraged by the support of Senators Booker, Paul, and Gillibrand in the introduction of the CARERS Act, and commend them for recognizing the desperate need for access for families and caregivers across the country to therapeutic hemp oil. We hope that this piece of their bill can continue to advance expeditiously so that those in need do not have to wait for yet another Congress to pass before caring for their loved ones. This is not a tomorrow problem. It is a today problem.

Compassionate Access Act Public Statement

Realm of Caring is thrilled to hear about another bill in the U.S. Congress which would increase access to potentially life saving cannabis therapies. On April 14th, Representatives Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced the Compassionate Access Act to reschedule marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD).

As Griffith stated, "it is time to research this further." The current schedule of marijuana, including CBD derived from marijuana, states it has no medicinal benefits. The Realm of Caring opposes this scheduling and states that cannabinoids have legitimate, positive effects, and, for some, cannabinoid therapies are the only form of care that relieves their symptoms. Children and adults across the country suffer needlessly because they lack access, and it is passed time for this to end.

Contact your lawmakers and tell them why increased access is important to you. Let your voice be heard!
