Quality Matters

Realm of Caring was informally established by Paige Figi and Heather Jackson, the first two success stories using Charlotte’s Web™, along with Joel Stanley 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 also to educate and advocate about this often misunderstood form of therapy.

  • The Realm of Caring Foundation empowers you to take control of your health and enhance your quality of life by providing cannabinoid research initiatives in addition to educational programs and services.

  • Realm of Caring is reimagining the way we think, talk, and respond to cannabis and the people who use it. Collaborating on innovative research. Providing revolutionary education. Empowering families to lead better lives. 

  • RoC currently serves over 46,000 clients worldwide and has a network of over 1000 healthcare providers. Their Observational Research Registry (ORR) gives them answers about cannabinoid therapies and they pass this information onto their clients through educational programs and one on one interactions with their Care Team.

  • The Realm of Caring Foundation (RoC) has established the only quality standards in the hemp industry to ensure transparency of operation, consistency of product, and extracts free of common contaminants.

  • RoC Partners with several research universities to collect data and evaluate the efficacy of cannabinoids for various conditions:

    • Harvard Medical​

    • Johns Hopkins University

    • University of Pennsylvania

When selecting among therapeutic cannabis products, quality of product is of the utmost concern. The cannabis and hemp industries are largely unregulated. Quality standards required by individual states vary; oftentimes, such standards are nonexistent. So how can you be sure to receive a product you can trust?

At Realm of Caring, many of their staff and families struggled with the same question. Over time, they've learned to ask specific questions to discern quality products. Where is the cannabis grown or sourced? What solvents or other chemicals are used? What is the product tested for, what testing method is used, and who does the testing?

There are a few companies taking quality to the next level. The Realm of Caring has recognized the following companies and products.
