 About Realm of Caring

We improve lives through Research, Education, and Advocacy. By funding and conducting Research, we learn more about cannabis and its effects while legitimizing the therapy. Education empowers consumers to select the best products for their individual needs and informs healthcare professionals about options for their patients. Through Advocacy, we spread the truth about cannabis and expand access to those in need. Read more about our specific programs below.




Just as a basecamp is the headquarter of any expedition, Realm of Caring baseCAMP is the go-to online resource for cannabinoid data and research. It is the portal to the future, containing up-to-date information on the research results, opportunities, and resources available. Currently included in baseCAMP is the RoC


Observation Research Registries (ORRs), a Scientific Exploratory Council (SEC) application to conduct research, and hundreds of full-text published research studies and the RoC Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Soon, we’ll add the ability to file for IRB approval for such studies.


Observational Research Registry (ORR)


Through baseCAMP, clients can participate in research via the Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved Epilepsy Observational Research Registry (ORR.) This ORR is the largest registry studying the effects of cannabis on people with epilepsy, collecting data from over 1,200 participants. We’re putting the finishing touches on a second study, the General ORR, which is expanded to enroll those with cancer, autoimmune disorders, pain disorders, and mental/behavioral disorders, giving us the ability to follow all participants in their therapies.


We are organizing these studies to gain more information about how the quantity and ratio of oils affect individuals at varying stages of health. Participation in the research registry is not required. However, we strongly encourage clients to participate for several reasons. Participation will benefit future clients in terms of how CBD, THC or THC-A might affect them. It is also a stepping stone for national acceptance of cannabis as a dietary supplement.


As an added incentive for registration and active participation in the ORR, active ORR participants will be entered into a monthly drawing to receive $50 off of a total cart purchase at CW Hemp. The Realm of Caring draws the names of five active participants each month. Recipients of the $50 coupon are e-mailed a coupon code to be used within 30 days.


Please keep in mind that participant information is de-identified to ensure confidentiality, and it is NOT a placebo study. Participants in our research are welcome to participate in other clinical trials as they become available.


Part of the primary mission of the Realm of Caring Foundation is research. Cannabis has been researched, but we are interested in furthering the body of evidence and conducting more rigorous studies into the potential uses of cannabinoid therapy. We receive several requests a day to conduct research studies on cannabinoid product and are thrilled to have more documented research studies taking place. We have put together a council, the Scientific Exploratory Council (SEC), for those physicians and entities conducting studies pertaining to cannabinoid therapy and families/individuals using the product.


Scientific Advisory Board (SAB)


Realm of Caring strives to conduct thorough and conclusive data-driven research; in an effort to keep these guidelines the RoC SAB reviews all opportunities and applications for validity and potential.


Currently residing on the SAB is:

Marcel is a clinical psychologist with over 15 years of cannabis and cannabinoid research experience. He has published well over 100 peer-reviewed papers, received dozens of research grants and is on the editorial board of 5 journals.

Marcel’s expertise primarily centers around understanding the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids for a variety of mental health and physical conditions, while tracking and mitigating negative consequences and side-effects associated with cannabis use.

Scott Hansen

Scott has spent over 25 years in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries in roles ranging from analytical chemistry, product development, and quality control and assurance.
