ECS Distribution Services
The hemp industry is relatively new in the United States. Hemp extracts that are rich in phytocannabinoids are now a legal market. These products can be shipped across state lines 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 hemp sourced products rich in cannabinoids can benefit your customers and patients.
Not all hemp products are created equal though. During our discussions, we will focus on quality levels of the hundreds of products being sold today. This conversation covers the problems the hemp industry continues to face, as well as the 16 point evaluation protocol for identifying trustworthy sources of industrial hemp and high-quality extracts.
A retail business that offers high-quality hemp extracts to the public must walk a fine line between explaining how phytocannabinoids bind to various receptors in our bodies and FDA restrictions about dietary supplement 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 will send our trainer to 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 safely.
Customer Account Support
Each of our partner retailers will be assigned a personal ECS Distribution Account Manager. Your Account Manager is your point of contact for answering all hemp-related questions and assisting with order placement. Your Account Manager will visit your place of business regularly to share updates in the hemp industry and discuss product changes. ECS Distribution may also use these 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
The use of cannabinoids sourced from hemp is new to almost everyone in the country. The laws allowing interstate transport of hemp produced changed in 2016 allowing people in the South to ingest these plant-based cannabinoids for the first time in generations. There have been many books and websites that explain cannabinoid basics. Not all of this information is accurate and unbiased.
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 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.
Every month the Realm of Caring offers training for practitioners wanting to learn more about how cannabinoids (like CBD) interact with the human body.
