Mugs of RoC- Meagan, Volunteer & Event Coordinator

It’s almost FALL! Not that I want to rush summer, I just really enjoy fall.

YUP, that’s me! However, here we are again, cozying up with your favorite mug for our favorite monthly session: Mugs of RoC. If you haven’t tuned in until now, no worries, you can catch up Jan-July. I missed August, I know, many sincere apologies. It was just busy and the month slipped away. So, Mugs of RoC... we’ve been getting to know the RoC Team through our most intimate office accessory, their mug.


RoC Friends: Support Our Mission!

In the coming weeks, we’ll officially launch a major sustainability campaign: RoC Friends! When you sign up as a RoC Friend, your monthly gift fuels our mission to Improve Quality of Life through cannabinoid Research, Education, and Advocacy.

How does it work?

New clients will choose a RoC Friend level when they register. Those who choose the $1 per month level or above gain access to the Client Portal, all our online resources, and the ability to call our Care Team for phone appointments.

Current clients will choose their Friend level after logging in. By giving $1 per month or more, they will retain their Client Portal access and get all the other benefits for their level of choice.

We also have cool rewards for those who aren't clients but still wish to support us as a RoC Friend. Check them out here!

FDA Taking Comments on CBD

UPDATE: Comment deadline extended to September 20. Now's your chance to speak up!

Hello Families,

The FDA is taking comments on Cannabidiol (CBD). We are asking you to make a comment supporting CBD not being subject to international restrictions.

We know many of you have an amazing story in regards to the benefits of CBD with you or your loved ones' health. However, the FDA is not looking for your testimony. In fact, such statements may backfire; the FDA may view those stories as Claims, supporting their belief CBD should exist as a drug only.

This, of course, would affect access for thousands. Because so many of us have limited options already, the last thing we need is more restrictions on a non-toxic, non-addictive compound.

PLEASE only make comments in regards to SAFETY, and how CBD has NO ABUSE POTENTIAL.

Go to to see the directions and make a comment. They offer suggestions for comment content, but please make your comment original. Also, submitting peer-reviewed research will help to legitimize your comment in the eyes of the FDA.

Make Your Voice Heard!

Quick tech note: Google Chrome doesn't work correctly on the FDA's website. Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer are all browsers that work correctly.

Share with your friends! We have strength in numbers!


The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressmen James Comer (R-KY), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Jared Polis (D-CO), and Thomas Massie (R-KY) introduced federal legislation to end unnecessary and outdated regulations on industrial hemp. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act exempts industrial hemp from the Controlled Substance Act’s definition of marijuana, creates a new category for hemp research at universities and state departments of agriculture, and allows for further commercialization of industrial hemp crops.


Thank You Bluebird Botanicals!

Mugs of RoC- John, Care Specialist, Research Coordinator

Y'all, I know I say this every month, but WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?! Maybe it's because I say that every month that it feels it's going by faster... time is all relative anyway. And that is exactly something team member John Matu would say, and that's my segue. This month I sat down with John Matu, RoC Research Coordinator, Orientation Leader and a Bilingual Care Specialist. He's a fellow southerner, hailing from the Bluegrass State, KY.
