Terravidaonline, the fastest-growing CBD wholesaler in the US, announced new ZERO THC tinctures will hit the shelves at retailers who sell its products. The THC content in CBD created a lot of pressure for the FDA, in order to regulate what may and may not be sold to the public. The CEO of Terravidaonline, Eddie Mamane, said: “Since there are discrepancies in how different states see the law, we made it easy for our retail partners: now we have a range of ZERO THC products which removes the red tape faced in some states”.

The image above depicts how varying strengths of ZERO THC CBD products will look, ranging from 1000MG, to 2500MG and even the super strong 5000MG.

CBD Has Become So Popular that Isolate Producers in the US May Face a Supply Squeeze

Since the signing of the Farm Bill of 2018 by the US president in December 2018, CBD has become more popular than ever and there is increasing demand by consumers. Even doctors who have read about the effectiveness of CBD for health concerns such as depression, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s disease, acne, anxiety and epilepsy are now prescribing more CBD for their patients than ever before. But does the increased demand match increased supply?

There hasn’t been enough time for the supply side to respond to the increased demand. If any farmers in the northern hemisphere plan to grow hemp, they can only start this coming summer. It is hoped that enough of them will joint the now popular hemp farming otherwise there will be a supply squeeze. Do we know what happens when demand exceeds supply? Prices will rise and those people who cannot afford the high prices will end up shopping by price alone, which means that they will end up purchasing low quality CBD. This is CBD extracted from hemp that was conventionally grown and maybe extracted using butane and ethanol. Products made from such CBD contains traces of harmful chemicals which are then ingested or inhaled or applied topically to the body, only to cause new problems.

Why Quality Matters

Whether you are new or old to the use of CBD, quality matters – as pointed out by a well-known Doctor. With so many CBD brands available out there how does a consumer know which one is good quality and which one is not? With so many versions of CBD in the form of lotions, vapes, capsules, softgels, oils, topicals and edibles, how does a consumer know which one is best? It can be confusing. And, considering the high cost of CBD and the total lack of government guidelines, how does a consumer make a decision?

The best way for a consumer to get the best out of CBD is the buy and use high quality CBD. Why does that matter? Because every user must get the best value for their money. Generally, the better the quality, the higher the price, yet it does not necessarily follow that when a CBD product is expensive it is better quality. That is because the potency of CBD varies from manufacturer to manufacturer so consumers have to make sure that what they get is strong enough to give them the effect that they desire. Consumers have to compare various products and look behind the scenes to discover the practices that each manufacturer follows to make their CBD product, e.g. the extraction process. Consumers must also check what each manufacturer insists on when they buy from the farmers because they want CBD to be made from organic non-GMO hemp. They must also check each manufacturer to find out if they use independent laboratories to certify that the CBD is free from pesticides, free from extraction chemical residues, and it is the right concentration. At the end of the day, every consumer must pay the best price for a high-quality product.

Consumers can actually check the quality of CBD by looking at the colour:

  • Raw CBD is either dark green or almost black because it was not purified. Therefore, it contains terpenes, waxes, chlorophyll, other cannabinoids and other plant matter. It is said that this type of CBD is not readily bioavailable and consumers might want to avoid it.
  • Decarboxylated CBD is also dark but the active ingredients have gone through decarboxylation which changes CBD-A to CBD which is claimed to be more bioavailable.
  • Filtered CBD is the most available type. It is decarboxylated and filtered and it has a lovely green colour. This is high quality CBD that can be compared to a fine brandy that has been triple distilled.

Quality matters. In the absence of government regulation and guidelines, consumers must do their own homework to ensure that they purchase and use high quality CBD products.

Two Example Products Made from High-Quality Non-GMO Certified CBD

Let’s focus on two high quality products made from CBD isolate made by Industrial Hemp Partners (IHP). There are oils, softgels, capsules, vape products, topical products, edibles and even pet products. Skin care products made from CBD are the latest development in the CBD industry. Users of CBD-infused beauty products keep reporting amazing results from using such items. Here are the reasons why CBD is very popular in beauty products.

CBD is Anti-Inflammatory: This property makes CBD the perfect ingredient for fighting psoriasis, eczema and sunburn. Because it prevents swelling and irritation it is perfect for preventing acne and pimple breakouts. CBD creams and lotions are the perfect allies for anyone who suffers from acne and pimples.

CBD is Anti-Oil: It minimises sebum production and normalizes over-active sebaceous glands and, as a result, the face is less oily and the pores are less clogged. This property of CBD makes it the perfect ingredient in acne products in order to prevent and treat acne.

CBD is Nourishing and Moisturising: CBD contains vitamins A, D and E, omega-6 essential fatty acid and gamma-linolenic acid which moisturize without blocking pores, and make the skin look plumber and more radiant.

CBD is Anti-Aging: CBD works very well with the endocannabinoid system, supplying any chemicals that might be lacking in the body, including antioxidants. Antioxidants reduce the appearance of wrinkles, prevent the skin from becoming dry, thin and fragile and give the skin a youthful glow.

COVID-19 Challenged The HealthCare Industry – How Inovantics Is Here To Make It Better

Published

on

COVID-19 took the world by storm, and industries worldwide suffered. None was affected more than the healthcare industry, both on the front line of fighting the virus, and how people got routine and other care from providers. When meeting with patients in person was no longer possible, providers found themselves facing a multitude of challenges. Going virtual created new privacy issues, regulations were constantly changing, and technology became front and center to how providers connected with patients, each other, and others in the industry. As things have slowly opened back up, there is no going back to pre-pandemic expectations or practices, many of the changes implemented out of necessity showed there was a better way to do things, other highlighted areas that needed improvements. Karen Coffey, the founder of Inovantics, is working to make sure the industry can keep up with every change the pandemic brings and be prepared should anything ever happen again that alters the industry so greatly.

Providers and patients alike found themselves out of their comfort zone, connecting with a patient through the phone, text message, or video, losing out on that personal connection. Frustration and chaos were quite common throughout the last year and a half, as provers and practices learned what worked, and what did not, and what they really needed to get patients the care they needed. It was a process of learning on the go, often figuring things out as they came up.

One area that clearly needed improvement became very apparent during the pandemic, and that is that there are just too many platforms that providers need to use, especially in the referral process. Now, as the healthcare and medical industry and world move forward, providers must be aware and ready to move forward, embracing newer methods of doing things and making sure they have the right technology to back them up. That is where Karen Coffey and Inovantics come in and can literally change the playing field for medical providers and practices.

Coffey is an expert in healthcare management, with over 20 years of experience in the industry. She knows all too well how hard it is for providers to manage clients, how many different systems they navigate just to get someone care, or referrals, the insurance and payment process, and more that goes into getting a patient the care they need and getting a provider payment for their services. She created Inovantics, a new, groundbreaking, all-inclusive, and customizable Healthcare CRM platform for providers to access all their patient information in one place, optimizing the care process and saving providers time and money.

Inovantics is designed to be a one-stop-shop for providers and streamlines the process that usually takes days or even weeks to complete. It streamlines operations, enhances customer relationships, shows trends and patterns in patient outcomes, can provide data analytics, is user friendly, reduces burden and overhead costs, and more. The platform is designed to be customized to suit every client’s needs, there is no one size fits all approach. It saves time and money, is incredibly efficient, can be run or accessed from anywhere, and can connect practices and providers with thousands of patients and colleagues. There is no limit to what the platform can do, and it can be used in any post-acute care situation, including small and large practices, and hospitals.

Inovantics was in development before the pandemic, however, COVID-19 only highlighted a system that needed innovation and updating. Through Inovantics, Coffey has created a valuable and powerful tool, unparalleled to anything currently out there, that takes the burden off providers and helps them provide patients with the very best care possible. As she puts it, she helps them work smarter, not harder.
