As you all know, we love our furry friends and love when you bring them in. For
the month of September, we’ll be teaming up with a nonprofit shelter called
Small Miracles Cat & Dog Rescue located in Ellicott City. This no-kill
shelter had found homes for over 10,000 cats in 2006 and expanded to finding
homes for over 4,000 dogs since 2011.
We can’t thank you enough for your support and participation in our Community Drives we have had thus far. We are approaching the one year mark of the start of our Community Drives here at Trilogy Wellness! It warms our hearts every month to see our Wellness Warriors walking in the doors with donations and big smiles on your faces. Here is the photo from our first Community Drive last year in support of the Community Action Council of Howard County- we have come a long way! Let’s double the donations from last year!
In August, Trilogy is teaming up with the Howard County Public School System again to donate school supplies to students in need for the upcoming school year. The Howard County School System projects that over 13,000 students may need assistance obtaining school supplies.
Please join us to help support students this year! To the patients who donated last year, we are so thankful for you all. For more info, please visit http://www.prepareforsuccess.org/
This month we are supported an organization close to our hearts called Thread!
What does Thread do?
Thread is often mistaken for a mentoring program or tutoring group. In fact, Thread is a community of individuals working to end our social isolation by rallying around Baltimore’s most academically-underperforming and highest potential 9th graders. Thread volunteers work in groups with a single student, building strong transformative relationships that transcend lines of race, class and zip code. Thread students consistently defy the odds: 85% of Thread students have graduated from high school within six years, and 83% have completed a college degree or certificate program.
At the beginning on this month, we held a week long donation drive at Trilogy Wellness to collect new and gently used towels for Threads summer camps! Camp Thread is for young adults and volunteers in the Thread community as well as the Baltimore Police Department’s Love U2 Life Camp! Camp is such a tremendous opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, build life-long friendships and most importantly have a ton of fun!
Together we collected over 200 towels during the donation drive! Community is one of Trilogy’s brand pillars and we are always so happy to give back. Thank you to everyone who participated in this wonderful cause!
Cannabidiol, or more popularly known as CBD, has been getting a lot of buzz in the health and wellness world. Everything from CBD tinctures, topicals and vape carts are now readily available. Those seeking natural relief from a variety of ailments have been able to do so with this therapeutic cannabinoid.
CBD is a cannabinoid that can be obtained from both hemp and cannabis plants. Depending on which variety of plant you are wanting to obtain CBD from, will determine whether you will need to be a registered medical cannabis patient or not.
With CBD becoming more and more popular, there has also come more confusion. So, we’ve broken it down for you:
First off, what is CBD?
CBD is a phytocannabinoid foundin both hemp and cannabis plants. CBD interacts with the CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system and can provide relief from pain, anxiety, inflammation, insomnia and depression (just to name a few). CBD is non-psychoactive and is well tolerated amongst many people even at high doses.
What’s the difference between Hemp and Cannabis?
Cannabis is a family of plants that includes sativa and indica species. And while cannabis that contains THC, often referred to as “Marijuana”, can be obtained from both indica and sativa species, Hemp is derived only from the cannabis sativa family. Hemp contains <0.3% THC and is naturally high in CBD. Cannabis (or Marijuana) in contrast, typically contains higher amounts of THC and small amounts of CBD.
Hemp and hemp-derived products are federally legal to obtain in the United States while the high THC cannabis and cannabis-derived products are not.
Hemp derived CBD vs Cannabis derived CBD
Like previously stated, CBD can be derived from both hemp andcannabis plants. CBD derived from hemp contains only CBD, while CBD derived from medical cannabis tends to contain secondary cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other minor constituents to help produce a wide array of benefits.
Since hemp-derived CBD is federally legal, it can be purchased from a variety of sources. Cannabis-derived CBD on the other hand, can only be purchased in Maryland through a medical dispensary.
CBD derived from cannabis is for medical purposes and is highly regulated and must undergo rigorous testing and quality standards. CBD derived from hemp does not have these requirements.
Do I need a medical card to obtain CBD?
The short answer, no. If you want to purchase hemp-derived CBD then you do not need to be a medical cannabis patient. However, if you want to obtain CBD that has been derived from medical cannabis, then you will need to be a registered patient.
