How many times throughout the course of your business or medical practice have you said to yourself the old saying that goes, “If I knew then what I know now?”
Probably at least a time or two, right?
Whether it was how you structured your practice; decided to hire someone (or not); purchased equipment; offered services; or leased a different office space, there’s probably at least onething you wish you had the chance to do over. And, presumably, there’s two major reasons why you wish you could do it over…one is to save yourself the headache, and the other (more painful) reason is because you know you missed out on a bunch of money.
The bad news is you can’t go back and change what’s already been done. But, the good news is that auspicious new opportunities tend to present themselves all the time. And fortunately for you, that time is now.
A New Player in the Game
Being in the medical field, you’ve more than likely heard a little something about the legalization of marijuana, THC, and its counterpart, CBD. And, if you’re a thinker, you’ve more than likely looked into its medicinal benefits, which we’ve been aware of since at least the 1830s.
But, we get it, just because people in the past used something for medicinal purposes doesn’t always mean it was good for you, or effective. Think, mercury. Luckily, for what we’re discussing, modern research has backed up claims that medical marijuana has real medical benefits. (Oops, did we not mention up until this point that CBD comes from a plant that is not universally legalized?!)
Pariah or Prodigy?
In every family we have that oneperson we just don’t talk about. The derelict, the degenerate, the pariah. But, there’s also that one shiningexample of what we should all be. That one family member who has it figured out…but….who, in their greatness, may also go against the grain and, therefore, there’s probably a thing or two we just can’t wrap our brains around about them.
That’s CBD. A prodigy in its own right.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the most remarkable compounds in the natural world. Granted, we don’t know everything we should about the intricate interactions of cannabis with the human body, however, we do know some of the benefits. And, regarding the law, CBD is legal in every single state in CBD-only or low-THC forms. (You should know the laws in your own area. If not, here’s a good start: https://medicalmarijuana.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=006473.) Additionally, CBD is non-psychoactive meaning, you won’t get high. And, because it won’t get you high, you can skirt any legal ban on marijuana in your area. It is only the THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is illicit in some states.
Fortunately, through recent studies the medical world is realizing its benefits and understanding that those benefits come with non-psychoactive components. And, that means patients can experience anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic effects, therefore treating neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting and nausea, anxiety, and more.
“CBD is the new frontier,” says Dr. Donald Feinsod, a Dermatologist in Long Island, NY. “We add CBD to our topical creams to treat joint pain and inflammatory acne. And the addition of CBD increases the penetration of the topicals into the skin.”
For skin care, this means you can offer patients and clients pain relieving body lotions, acne treating face creams and eczema reducing serums that, with CBD, are more effective than what we’ve seen in the past. What’s more is patients are seeking these CBD-based products out.
And, if patients are already seeking these products out, they’re more than willing to pay for it.
CBD Means More Green
Marketers have done a fine job of making marijuana (and its two main compounds, THC and CBD) more attractive to a mainstream audience. Its de-stigmatization has already made a ton of money for growers and dispensaries across the country.
Joshua T. Berglan, CEO of Live Mana Worldwide, a business consulting firm with clients in both the aesthetic and cannabis industries says, “With marijuana sales totaling almost $7 billion in North America last year, it would be a very smart move to add CBD products to your arsenal.” He added, “The key is to be an innovator. To get in on it before we reach market saturation.”
A benefit of being an innovator in the skin care market is that innovators are the drivers of change. They are highly visible, valuable and respected by patients. Berglan continued, “Patients are alreadyseeking CBD products out. They want it. And plastic surgeons, dermatologists, pain management doctors and aestheticians should be the ones to offer it to them while their practices reap the rewards.”
