If you’re in the chiropractic profession, you’ve seen the benefits that you can bring to your patients. The look of relief on their face and the sound of thankfulness in their voice can feel better than any financial compensation they provide. The only problem is that as a chiropractor you’re often limited to assisting patients only when they’re in your office. Luckily, there’s a way you can bring patients greater relief and satisfaction outside of the office — by adding CBD products to your chiropractic retail program.
Recently, many chiropractors have taken to adding a retail area or online store to their office. These retail areas not only add an extra income stream to your chiropractic practice, but also provide tangible benefits to your patients. As a healthcare professional, your goal is to improve the lives of your patients. Making it possible to purchase products at the point of diagnosis or treatment makes it more likely that patients will follow your advice and improve their own physical health at home.
If you’ve been considering a chiropractic retail program, you owe it to yourself and your patients to consider stocking CBD products. The well-known, highly touted benefits of the compound are constantly being researched, and each test brings us closer to knowing the full scope of its benefits. At the same time, the legality of CBD has grown ever clearer. CBD products are now among the easiest alternative medicines to stock and sell.
Now, you may be asking yourself, “How can CBD products be a part of my chiropractic retail product program?” Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. Below are a few helpful tips about how to add CBD to your list of product offerings, along with some reasons CBD could help your patients and your private practice thrive.
What are the Benefits of CBD for Chiropractor Patients?
While it’s important to note that the FDA has not confirmed any of the claimed health benefits of CBD, early research points to its potential for pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects. Recently, the FDA even approved an anti-seizure medication, Epidiolex, that is derived from CBD. This is the first of what could be many CBD-derived prescription strength medications.
So while you cannot state that CBD treats or cures any disease or ailment, you can recommend certain products to your patients. Being a chiropractor, you know the most common types of pain that your patients experience on a day-to-day basis. Common ailments like joint pain, arthritis, chronic back pain, and neck pain run rampant through chiropractic patients, and these ailments have only become more common as more people work from home. CBD may not be the cure for these painful conditions, but it can be a step on the way to better health.
Take for instance a CBD muscle rub or a CBD massage oil. Both of these products are based on preexisting goods that have proven, pain relieving effects. Infusing CBD into these products for a topical application lets your patients take advantage of the compound’s pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects. You can confidently recommend these products to patients thanks to their already understood benefits, which CBD only helps to enhance.
If you don’t know what goods to stock, you’re in luck. We’ve created a guide specifically for chiropractors. It outlines what CBD products are best for chiropractic patients and dives into five of the most effective products, what they do, and why they can help your patients.
How Do I Start a CBD Retail Program?
Starting a CBD retail program is easier than you might think. Prior to 2018, that wasn’t the case. But thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill and the subsequent new rules from the USDA, the latest laws regarding CBD are far more relaxed.
You can set up a CBD retail program much as you would start any retail program. The only additional requirement is a license to engage in retail operations within your state of residence. Once you have that license, you’re ready to start setting up shop!
But there’s more to think about than just laws. To run a successful CBD retail program out of your chiropractic practice, you need to have a plan and a strategy. Thankfully, our guide on how to get started selling CBD contains almost all of the information that you need to get your CBD program off the ground.
What Do I Need to Know Before Selling CBD?
As with any new product, you should do your research before committing to selling CBD. To help you get started, here are some of the most common questions we see regarding CBD.
Does CBD show up on a drug test?
No, CBD does not show up on a drug test. All of the CBD products offered by US Hemp Wholesale fully adhere to federal regulations surrounding CBD. In short, that means that all of the products on this site are made from hemp-derived CBD that reliably tested below 0.3% THC. If you have a patient who is a professional athlete, government worker, or part of another zero tolerance industry, we recommend a CBD concentrate as they have the greatest level of purity of any CBD product.
Does CBD get you high?
No, CBD does not get you high. In order to be sold in the United States, it must be at or below 0.3% THC, which is a trace amount. While the regulations vary slightly from state to state, the federal stance aligns with the 0.3% THC amount, as do all the products sold by US Hemp Wholesale.
What are the known side effects of CBD?
CBD has very few known side effects. As with other cannabaceae-derived products such as cannabis, it is impossible to overdose on CBD. To date, the most common side effects include a mild drowsiness or stomach discomfort. Both of these side effects have only been observed in patients that have taken a significant dose of CBD, and the latter effect has primarily been traced back to the carrier oils and not the CBD itself.
