Attention: Assisted Living & Senior Care Living Facility Environments
This letter is to address the issue of resident or family / caregiver desire to utilize natural health options for medication use. There is a growing concern with polypharmacy issues in the elderly, and CBD supplements often work to ameliorate many symptoms that the other RX does not. Because CBD has been legalized in all 50 states with the 2018 US Farm Bill, access for residents who may benefit over more harmful pharmaceuticals should be granted.
The FDA seeks to regulate CBD, but for now issued guidelines of safety for good manufacturing practices, and to seek USDA Organic CBD, Certificate of Analysis, and transparent business practices in labeling and marketing. As part of our services to clients, we recommend CBD brands that exceed these criteria. This is botanical medicine, and it must be tested and pure.
CBD & Cannabinoids have been safe and effective in patient care for symptom management of anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disturbance, appetite, and general mood enhancement with less fear and agitation. Targeted formulas can address specific imbalances and cumulative dosing reduces the need for other pharmaceuticals for behavioral issues. Over 59 studies for Dementia prove efficacy and safety for various cannabinoids, terpenes, and lifestyle changes.
We invite you to participate in our CBD Project as a facility, allowing your nursing staff, medical director, and families to learn from our education and participate in support groups. We offer 1:1 coaching and can train Nurses to understand and apply cannabinoids in holistic practice. In fact, the American Nurses Association just designated Cannabis Nursing a Specialty.
Other facilities are offering the CBD Project with in-house Nurses working in partnership with Holistic Caring Nursing to address CBD needs and care of the residents.
Hebrew Home in the Bronx was among the first to help residents access THC, and has been successful in demonstrating safe, effective use of non-smokable THC in tinctures and topicals.
It’s a brave new world, but we’ve been Registered Nurses for 37 years each, and working to support Cannabis Therapeutics with patients across America the past 9 years. We’re helping the resident who gave you this letter with this much-needed option. We’d love to partner with you to bring this to your facility, and to have an open dialogue about dosing, interactions, timing with ADLs and other RX, and what medicines to look to wean in time with CBD efficacy.
