The Realm of Caring's CEO, Heather Jackson and our esteemed Care Specialist John Matu were excited to meet and chat with some great names in football at the CW Bronco Alumni Lab Tour last week. The tour was part of the Broncos continued efforts to learn about CW Hemp as a safe and effective means of combating issues brought about from a career in the NFL. "After we visited this group at Mile High Stadium they wanted to learn more at Charlotte's web," said Del Jolly. Several players also joined our Observational Research Registry we're conducting with Johns Hopkins University.
"When you have kiddos with #specialneeds, you just figure it out," says RoC Outreach Director, Nicole Mattison. "Millie's nurse is on #vacation, and luckily RoC's #officeculture is such that I can bring her in with me if I need to. It takes a village you know, so thankfully her amazing therapists were able to accommodate the quick change of location." Here Millie is receiving #occupationaltherapy from @MGAHomeHealthcare.
Our esteemed Care Specialists Linnette Chitla and John Matu attended the second annual CannMed conference in Boston this past week. They had the privilege of meeting some vanguard researchers and listening to cutting edge lectures.
How is it April already!? Well, onward and upward we go. This month I sat down with Lisa, Lead Care Specialist at RoC. Lisa is multilingual, and this woman has worldly written all over her, let's learn more.
Lisa comes to RoC from Miami, but nowhere in particular, or more so everywhere. In her previous line of work, she was a flight attendant. And then went on to host a television show called "Casa Y Estilo Internacionel" (or if you're like me, and parlez Francais, kinda, that's House and Style International), so when I say she is "worldly," she is the very embodiment of the word. Buckle up and let's go for a ride!
April is a month full of health awareness: Autism, IBS, Parkinson’s, World Health, and much more. However RoC is choosing to focus on autism as it is the second highest diagnosis in our pediatric client population, and autism prevalence is estimated at 1:45 in the US. Chances are high that you know and interact daily with someone on the spectrum, some more severe than others. And with cannabinoid therapy becoming a more accepted alternative, RoC’s client resources may provide a better quality of life for these individuals and their loved ones.
Heather Jackson, CEO at the Realm of Caring and audacious mom, sat down with the crew of ENDPAIN and shared her son's journey to a better quality of life using cannabis as therapy. ENDPAIN connects individuals from every background united by the belief that pain of any kind -- mental, physical, emotional -- is nothing to feel ashamed about. Storytelling is their way to learn and empathize with one another.
In line with our mission for support and advocacy for individuals using cannabinoid therapy, RoC collaborated with local nonprofits to create the educational material below for the upcoming Colorado Springs City Council Election, taking place April 4th. Please take the time to review and consider your action.
In the words of John F Kennedy:
"There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction."

We are excited to announce that the US House of Representatives has formed its first Congressional Cannabis Caucus. The caucus was founded by Republicans Dana Rohrabacher and Don Young and Democrats Earl Blumenauer and Jared Polis. The goal of the caucus is to harmonize federal laws that prohibit medical and recreational cannabis use with state laws that permit it.
