Who we are…
The Patient Care Clinic (PCC) is a functional medicine clinic working with a network of clinicians from various health and holistic fields. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals by providing educational services, treatment plans and support, compassionate care, and the highest quality hemp-derived CBD products, as well as prescriber directed nutraceuticals and other lifestyle healthcare solutions.
Our goal is to teach clients how to use plant-based medicine to achieve optimum symptom relief so clients can live their best life. The PCC can work with your healthcare provider to complement your treatment, optimizing symptom management and treatment outcomes.
Why chose the Patient Care Clinic?
Founded in 2014, We have over 6 years of experience providing quality care and collecting anecdotal data from our patients’ experiences and outcomes. Our team has the knowledge and experience to help guide and educate the client and their family about hemp products and their effects.
We work closely with Oncologist, Pain management specialists and auto-immune doctors, such as Nephrologist, Rheumatologist, Endocrinologist and Neurologist. We can also work with your health care professionals. We have experience with:
- Auto-immune diseases
- Cancer and chemotherapy side effects
- Lyme Disease
- Migraine headaches
- Nerve Pain
- General and Joint Pain
- Cancer Pain
How we do it…
We provide an individualized patient experience which include:
- Initial consultation:
- Review of diagnosis and desired symptom relief
- product guidance
- Which delivery methods may be best for you and why?
- dosing instructions
- How much is an effective dose?
- Follow up Consultation:
Your clinician will follow your treatment plan as part of our continued care. This service maintains the integrity of each patients individualized plan to achieve optimal symptom relief as well as provides opportunity for adjustments in dosage and/or product mix.
The PCC consciously selects the active ingredient in each of our products. Moreover, we are the manufacturer of many of our products and are purposeful in choosing the active extract whether it is Hemp-derived CBD from isolate, distillate or RSO (true full spectrum ethanol extract oil).
Our dosing is specifically designed to be highly controllable and easily adjustable. We offer products made using RSO or Full Spectrum High CBD Hemp oil extract that contain less than .3% THC by volume as well as pure CBD (zero THC) products, protecting those who cannot test positive or just do not want THC.
For Flavoring we predominantly use peppermint oil to cut the bitterness from the active and make the user experience enjoyable without adding potential allergens or irritants.
RSO Oil Approach
CBD Medical Supply uses an RSO Approach for our Full Spectrum High CBD Hemp oil extracts. The extract is a blend of multiple high CBD hemp strains to get the broadest spectrum of cannabinoids for the greatest chance of success. Most oils used are 65% CBD and the other 35% contains cannabinoids, phytonutrients, terpenes, and flavonoids that all contribute to the entourage effect and enhance the power of the CBD extract.
CBD Medical Supply uses ethanol extracted cannabis oil for all the Full Spectrum CBD based products. The main reason is that ethanol pulls the most complete cannabinoid spectrum and terpene profile, creating a full spectrum hemp oil extract that possess the true essence of the cannabis plant. The final step of refinement is a triple filtration process removing impurities like heavy metals and molds while retaining substantial quantities of terpenes, flavonoids, and other phytonutrients.
The CBD Medical Supply Advantage
CBD Medical Supply uses Ultrasonic Sonication Technology to break down particle size, create liposomes and make the hemp oil extract more easily absorbable with increased bioavailability. The human body is made up of 60% water, hemp extracts are oil(hydrophobic not water soluble molecules). In order for the cannabinoids to be more effective, we create Liposomes which move more freely throughout the bloodstream and body.
Liposomal drug delivery is produced by the mechanical shear force of ultrasonic cavitation to reduce the droplet size of cannabinoids in combination with a fatty acid carrier oil(ie. coconut oil). Liposomes work with the phospholipids in the semi-permeable membrane of our body’s cells to transport nutrients into the cell. Liposomes are composed of the same material as a cell membrane (lipid bilayer), they essentially encapsulate the cannabinoids so they can enter a cells membrane more effectively and efficiently. It is very similar to nanoparticles but not made with the same intensity.
Liposomal drug delivery is extremely effective with the Sublingual route of administration, generally producing higher bioavailability and faster onset of relief. Absorbing straight into the blood stream through the oral tissue, the effects start can start in a few minutes and can last 3 to 4 hours or longer, depending on the dose taken. This route of administration avoids first pass metabolism by the liver.
We are a company founded on the belief that humans and hemp or cannabis have a symbiotic relationship. CBD helps many people find and maintain a homeostasis that enhances their lives and improves daily living. This synergy between humans and cannabis is demonstrated in many examples, most obvious is the Endocannabinoid System. It has been found to be the most widespread receptor system in the human body, explaining why cannabis has so many different effects. Our bodies are already producing cannabinoids called endocannabinoids, when you add phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plants) you are giving your body the building blocks to achieve and maintain homeostasis.
Another prime example of this symbiotic relationship is how long our bodies store cannabinoids. Humans have stopped consuming the plant, yet they can still test positive for cannabinoids 30 days after stopping consumption. It shows that the human body is storing cannabinoids for use for many different purposes in our physiology.
How and why we care.
In 2012 one of our principles witnessed firsthand how difficult it can be to transition a loved one into hospice care. His grandmother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was experiencing pain. The drugs prescribed to her caused extreme sedation, confusion, sleepiness combined with constipation and lack of appetite and nausea. There had to be a better way to deal with our last days on this Earth. A similar circumstance in 2014, this time it was the happiest 2-year-old boy you could every meet, diagnosed with terminal cancer. This time we used cannabis therapy to treat the pain. The boy and his parents got to spend the last 6 months together enjoying each other, rather than having an extremely sedated, constipated little boy who could not communicate or understand what was happening to him.
The experience has led our team towards Cannabis advocacy and helping others deal with the difficult and challenging times of living with complex medical conditions and finding a better solution to end of life care.
