Statement by Senator Orrin G. Hatch

Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control
Hearing: “Cannabidiol: Barriers to Research and Potential Medical Benefits” Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Thank you for allowing me to step in to make a brief statement.

I’m heartened by the attention this issue is receiving. CBD has shown tremendous promise in reducing the devastating effects of epilepsy. It offers hope to thousands of children nationwide who each day endure terrifying, uncontrollable seizures. It offers hope as well to parents who must endure the repeated agony of helplessly watching as their children suffer seizure after seizure after seizure.

Ask Paige Figi, whose eight-year-old daughter suffered as many as 300 grand mal seizures per week before starting treatment with CBD, and she will tell you that CBD is a lifesaver. After Charlotte started taking CBD, her seizures dropped dramatically. She now suffers, on average, less than three seizures per month and is able to engage in normal childhood activities.

Now, I understand the desire for caution. We’re Congress. We act slowly. But we must remember that these are people’s lives we’re dealing with. These are people for whom a five- or ten-year delay is not an inconvenience, but a potential death sentence.

Letter from the Executive Director

Letter from the Executive Director

Spring is here, the birds are chirping, tulips are blooming, lives are improving, my son Zaki is approaching 30 months seizure free - and filling our fundraising cup is underway. This month’s newsletter is focused on our fundraising efforts and why they are so necessary to the continuance of our organization's ability to serve its mission. When we say that the Realm could not do it without you, we mean it. We receive no government funding of any sort. We are completely and wholly funded by individual donors and organizations like yourself. We do continue to apply for grants but what we do may be considered a little unprecedented, so we have not realized any funding through grants... yet. I hold hope in this area.

Realm Cares Sneak Peek

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.
