Inspired by her own journey with pain management, see how one local nurse developed a CBD product line and consulting services.
Cincy Chic: What is Tulip Tree CBD?
Jeri Schulz, MSN, RN, Founder of Tulip Tree: Researching the cannabis market, I became encouraged by the way CBD alleviated her own symptoms and was convinced of its healing potential as a natural alternative for pain. However, she also found disturbing discrepancies in quality, unbelievable claims of healing, dosing confusion, hard-to-use products, and questionable customer service.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
Schulz: Offering a better way to guide and educate people about premium hemp CBD products that were clean, easy to use, and of consistently high quality became my purpose as I created what I believed was missing in the marketplace.
I am proud to offer premium Broad-Spectrum hemp-based CBD products that are organically grown, thoughtfully processed, clean, and contain Zero THC. My promise to you: the guidance you need, customized recommendations, and the best customer service in the industry. All of our products follow FDA guidelines and are third-party tested that you can see for yourself right on the website.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind it?
Schulz: I am the founder and CEO of Tulip Tree LLC and Dose Medical Cannabis Nurse Consulting. My interest in alternative therapies and personal experiences led me to pursue specialized knowledge in all things medical cannabis. My expertise includes managing cardiovascular services, intensive care units, four Chicago area inpatient hospice providers, critical care, and telemetry units. My passion is sharing that knowledge with others.
I have taught hundreds of nursing students the clinical skills they need to take care of their patients with kindness, compassion, and skill. I have served on the nursing faculty of several Chicago-area colleges and universities and take pride in sharing my dedication to the highest patient-care standards.
A registered nurse in Ohio and Illinois, I have collaborated with some of the most respected minds and institutions in medical cannabis, including the American Cannabis Nurses Association and the Society of Cannabis Clinicians.
Cincy Chic: What types of CBD products do you carry?
Schulz: Tulip Tree CBD carries products that are crafted from the finest quality, premium organically-grown-in-the-USA hemp with Zero THC. We are proud to offer you – and your fur babies — all-natural, Farm-Bill Compliant alternatives to relieve pain, inflammation, anxiety, and insomnia. We have tinctures that are unique in their packaging to keep your dose accurate and contamination-free with our Perfect Balance Singles, a full line of soft gels for beginners, Body and Mind Balance, or targeting inflammation with Plus, or helping you get some sleep with Rest. The gummies are a crowd favorite with broad-spectrum CBD, all-natural flavors, and no added dyes or sugars. We also carry our Fur Baby Balance line of vet formulated dog chews and pet tincture.
Cincy Chic: Do you have a store location or are you online only?
Schulz: Much of our business is direct to consumers on-line with free shipping however, we do have a few Cincy retailers that carry our line of product and are adding more all the time. Check the website for current locations around the Cincy area.
Cincy Chic: What makes Tulip Tree CBD unique?
Schulz: Tulip Tree is unique in that it is founded by a nurse with years of clinical experience and many more years of personal experience in natural medicine. We understand that people have complicated medical histories and lists of medications that make them hesitant to try CBD. Our CBD won’t get you high, it will help you with your anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, and balancing your endocannabinoid system and you can consult with a certified nurse to help you find that perfect and individual dose.
Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon?
Schulz: We have just launched Dose.net Medical Cannabis Nurse consultations. This is exciting news for residents in Ohio and Illinois. The east and west coasts have already seen a surge in the need for certified cannabis nurses and now the Midwest will be able to say the same.
There are over 94,000 medical cannabis patients in Ohio alone. Getting your medical cannabis card can be overwhelming. It’s not about getting high, it’s about symptom relief. Dose.net was founded with a specific goal of caring for people who look to cannabis for relief and need support getting started. We customize and implement a plan of care and reassess that plan, working closely with patients to relieve suffering much like a diabetic nurse educator does for a new diabetic. A guiding hand by a knowledgeable clinician is important to optimize benefits, saving patients’ time and money finding the right dose and also removes stress and empowers patients to get the medicine they need.
Cincy Chic: Where can readers go to learn more and follow along?
Schulz: TulipTreeCBD.com has a wealth of information about CBD and Dose.net will give you more information about medical cannabis. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
