Across the past year, COVID-19 and the quarantine that came along with it have presented a major challenge for private practice medical professionals. This is especially true for medical professionals like chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapists, who rely on in-person meetings to administer their services.
If you’re one of the medical professionals whose business has been hampered by an inability to meet your patients and clients in person, CBD could be the answer to your troubles. By adding CBD retail options to your medical practice, you could maintain your private practice throughout the COVID-19 quarantine and provide more comprehensive aid to your patients.
Why a CBD Retail Program Could Help Your Private Practice
It should come as no surprise that adding a retail program to your private practice can help generate income. Better yet, it gives you a way to increase income while patients remain socially distanced. Even before quarantine many doctors had incorporated a retail area into their offices.
These retail programs don’t just make money though — they improve the lives of patients. For instance, if a physical therapist or chiropractor recommends a back brace and also happens to sell one, the patient now has an easier time finding a remedy to their ailment. The same convenience factor applies for other types of recommended products if the practitioner can also offer them for sale.
So why CBD? CBD has been the subject of stringent research ever since its discovery, and the results have been extremely promising. Recent research has shown evidence that CBD may play a role in pain relief as an anti-inflammatory, which makes it perfect for chiropractors, acupuncturists, and physical therapists. Additionally, CBD has become far easier to acquire thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill and the USDA’s latest rules. Now is the best time to start exploring CBD as an option to help your private practice thrive during quarantine, and as something that can improve the lives of your patients.
What CBD Products Work Best for Your Patients
If you haven’t already explored the most common types of CBD products, you may be wondering what products will work best for your patients. Luckily, we’ve done the legwork for you. We have a series of helpful guides walking you through the best CBD retail products for chiropractors, physical therapists, personal trainers and acupuncturists to carry.
The Benefits of CBD
Research has provided evidence that the benefits of CBD may be more multifaceted than initially expected. Even Harvard Medical School has determined that it is worth their time to follow developments on the latest research into CBD.
Currently, the strongest evidence in favor of CBD is for its potential use as an anti-inflammatory and pain relief tool. However, there is also some evidence that it may help to reduce anxiety, among other effects.
When considering the benefits of CBD, one should note that different products have different effects. While they all use CBD as the primary active ingredient, the method of delivery can have a major impact on how the body absorbs and reacts to the CBD itself. For instance, a CBD edible will activate more slowly than a vaporizer, but the effects may ultimately be more potent.
Today, there are even CBD products meant for topical use. CBD muscle rubs and massage oils use CBD to enhance the already proven benefits of massages and muscle work. Adding this to the routine of a patient who suffers from muscle pain or joint soreness could help them take control of their own pain relief. So offering CBD products can help you improve patients’ lives and turn them into a satisfied, lifelong customer at your private practice.
The Legality of a CBD Retail Program
Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill and the tireless work of CBD advocates, CBD has been made functionally legal to sell within the United States. While age restrictions apply to certain products, such as vaporizers, hemp-derived CBD can be sold across the United States, with the sole exception of Idaho. Best of all, because CBD is non-intoxicating, there are no special licenses required to sell it. So long as you have all of the necessary permits and licenses required to perform retail sales, you can sell CBD products.
If you plan to sell CBD through an online store, that’s also an option! Just make sure that your web host allows for the sale of CBD. Some retail platforms do not allow for the sale of CBD products, as they are still considered “high-risk” by some industries.
