Local Nonprofit Represents at the Oscars

Realm of Caring Foundation Participates in Oscar Event at Hollywood Legion Hall

A nonprofit based out of Colorado Springs is making their list and checking it twice. After all, it’s not every day that a Colorado nonprofit is offered a table backstage at an Oscars event. But that is exactly what happened for Heather Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of Realm of Caring Foundation and her team. “Corina of Corsus Body Care is the aunt of one of our clients. She wanted to make sure that celebrities at this event found out what Realm of Caring is doing. She asked if we would make a card to hand out at her table at the event, and then she said ‘I think I can get you a table, would you guys like that?’ We were all so shocked and excited!” said Jackson.

Albuquerque baby makes history with cannabis oil at Colorado hospital

RoC loves to share success stories, and Amylea's is one for the Colorado History books. When Nicole Nunez arrived at the Realm of Caring office, she was no stranger. She has already spoken to several staff members on the phone, and touched several hearts. Team member Kathy spoke in person with Nicole Nunez.

"I was so impressed by the information Nicole (Amylea's mom) already had, about her options and medical cannabis. She had just arrived to Denver that day after being air-lifted with Amylea, she drove straight here (to the RoC Office). Having been through this with our son at the same age, I was truly inspired by her courage and love for her newborn daughter," said Kathy.

KRQE reports:

“I sat for a good three weeks fighting with the doctors and trying to talk them into giving me the okay,” Nicole said. “I’ve been working with the case study team and the neurology team here at children’s and I’m hopeful this will work.”

Today, the hospital gave that “okay” the family has been waiting for.

“For us to get the approval for us to administer it while she in the NICU while she’s a patient…it’s kind alike a miracle,” Nicole said. “Because they were completely against it saying, ‘No you can’t do it, you have to wait until she’s an out-patient.”

Although doctors gave the okay, they are not allowed to administer the oil. The family has to give the doses to Amylea. The family said nurses already noticed a difference in her being more alert than usual, and she’s only had two doses.

"I remember we were both crying on the phone, just so devastated. After seeing the follow up, our tears paid off," said RoC Care Team member Jasmin.

Elixinol and Realm of Caring Announce Partnership

Elixinol, LLC Supports Realm’s Mission of Providing Support Services and Resources for Those Using Cannabinoid Products

BOULDER & COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – JAN 5, 2016 Elixinol, LLC today announced that it has teamed with Realm of Caring to fund research, education, and patient empowerment efforts locally in Colorado, nationwide, and throughout the world. As part of the partnership, Realm of Caring’s extensive client support resources will be available to all of Elixinol’s customers.

The Realm of Caring (RoC) is a 501c3 non-profit organization conducting research, providing education, and performing advocacy for those using cannabinoid therapies. They provide these services free of charge, “because quality of life matters.” RoC was established in 2012 by the Stanley Brothers, Heather Jackson, and Paige Figi — following the first two success stories of their children using Charlotte’s Web™. Three years later, the Stanleys and Paige have transitioned to other roles as Heather leads RoC in its efforts.

RoC clients are numerous and diverse; of the 19,000 members, 46% are under the age of 18. These clients are affected by a variety of disorders and diseases, including Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Pain, HIV/AIDS, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and many more. By collaborating on research with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Realm of Caring educates the general public and policy makers to the benefits and effects of cannabinoid supplements.

“Today marks an important milestone for Elixinol, as we make our products available to all Realm of Caring’s supporters through their amazing platform“, says Paul Benhaim, cofounder and CEO of Elixinol LLC. "The partnership between our organizations, and the complementary nature of our missions, will bring a great alternative to patients. The challenge today is the limited availability of reliable research, information, and support. Realm of Caring is leading the charge to educate clients and their families. We’re honored to be involved in their mission and excited to help make these critical resources available to more people.”

Paul Benhaim, Elixinol CEO is a Hemp-industry veteran with more than 30 years of management and leadership experience, and believes the partnership will create one of the strongest collaborations in the cannabis industry. "Within a short period of time Realm of Caring has demonstrated its commitment to quality and consistency, and established a strong brand in the process," said Benhaim. "Here at Elixinol we encompass a similar vision, and we strongly believe our collaboration will accelerate the spread of education and awareness "

“We (the industry) have come a long way from then (2012). The technology to advance whole plant extracts to improve their balance, efficacy, and delivery has ensured Elixinol’s products are the best bar none.” says Gabriel Ettenson, COO. “We now just want to expand our reach and help more people.”

“Realm of Caring is very excited to team up with Elixinol,” said Heather Jackson, Executive Director, Realm of Caring. “They are committed to quality products and innovative delivery mechanisms. Paul Benhaim has decades of experience in the hemp industry and is respected worldwide. Their hemp food products support health beyond their cannabinoid products.
