HME providers see patients daily that currently use or may benefit from hemp products. These types of suppliers are proving to be a valuable resource to the patients they serve. In an environment containing a wide variety of options, these types of customers rely on their trusted healthcare providers in selecting the solution that best fits their needs. Quality, concentration, and transparency are among the key considerations when selecting a hemp brand with which to align.
Passing of the 2018 Farm Bill opened the CBD/Hemp market nationally for products containing < 0.3% THC (the psychoactive compound found in Cannabis). Suppliers vary on the quality of ingredients with which hemp products are produced—ranging from the use of all organic processes to the complete absence of ingredient listings. Healthcare professionals understand the importance of knowing what is being put into the body and can be an asset to patients in providing the highest quality product possible.
