ECS Distribution Services
Hemp-CBD products are relatively new creations, and we here as ambassadors to the industry. The year 2016 was the first time since WWII, hemp could be grown and shipped across state lines legally for consumption and retail sales. As the markets evolve, we are here to discuss the legal history, pertinent studies regarding the safety and efficacy of cannabinoids, and the importance of selecting high-quality hemp-sourced products. The information in each of these categories goes deep. We appreciate the opportunity to learn more about your business and how products naturally rich in cannabinoids could benefit your customers and patients.
Not all hemp products are created equal though. During our discussions, we will focus on quality levels of the thousands of manufacturers offering CBD products today. This conversation includes a 16 point evaluation protocol for identifying trustworthy sources of consistent and clean hemp extracts.
A retail business that offers high-quality hemp extracts to the public must be careful when discussing potential benefits of using plant-based cannabinoids due to FDA restrictions about making efficacy claims. While all cannabinoids from hemp are non-toxic with no known lethal dose, the FDA has strict regulations about what can and cannot be said about their effectiveness for a people seeking a higher quality of life.
We provide webinars and in-person training at your place of business to explain and discuss the nuances of the biology, legality, and FDA restrictions. While there is a wide spectrum of results associated with deliberate ingestion of cannabinoids, knowing how to explain this to your customers and when to pass the conversation on the medically trained staff at the Realm of Caring Foundation is key to ensuring we grow the industry properly.
Customer Account Support
Each of our partner retailers is assigned a dedicated ECS Distribution Account Manager. Your ECS Account Manager is your point of contact for answering all hemp-related questions and assisting with order placement. Your Account Manager will contact your place of business regularly to share updates in the hemp industry and discuss product changes. We can also use periodic visits to provide training to your business's new staff members, so they can comfortably discuss hemp extracts with your customers. Our team goes through persistent industry and manufacturer training, so we will always support your business thoroughly and accurately.
Medically Trained Support
While our team is well-versed in cannabinoid safety, efficacy, and important sourcing issues, sometimes you and your customers/patients will need medically-trained guidance. That is where the Realm of Caring Foundation comes in.
The Realm of Caring Foundation has a partnership with Harvard Medical, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Pennsylvania for ongoing human research on the efficacy of using various cannabinoid concentrations. The non-profit has the largest database in the world for real-world studies on the efficacy of cannabinoids. The Realm of Caring also has a medically trained support staff available to work with doctors, practitioners, and your customers to ensure the best experience possible.
