Increasing access to evidence-based care using medicinal plants
Billions of people around the world use medicinal plants for their healthcare needs. It is a healthcare system that is an integral path of global health. However, many healthcare providers and populations using medicinal plants do not know what is the product and dosing to prescribe or use, and what are the side-effects to consider. The IPI is committed to helping healthcare providers and populations access evidence-based information for their healthcare needs powered by IPI research and artificial intelligence
U.S. President recently signed into law a bipartisan bill on medical cannabis which among other things allows physicians to discuss the currently known potential harms and benefits of cannabinoids, such as CBD, for healthcare. The IPI is committed to supporting healthcare providers and populations with evidence-based knowledge for discussion.
The practice of using herbal supplements dates back thousands of years. Today, the use of herbal supplements is common among American consumers. However, they are not for everyone. Because they are not subject to close scrutiny by the FDA, or other governing agencies, the use of herbal supplements remains controversial. It is best to consult your doctor about any symptoms or conditions you have and to discuss the use of herbal supplements. The IPI supports doctors and populations in the use of evidence-based herbal medicine
Medicinal plant products vary in their effectiveness and potential side effects across different regions or companies manufacturing the products. The IPI provides a premier Institute for quality assurance of products compared to reference standards that can let businesses and consumers compare the products they are using with reference standards. For example a CBD product from a company can be validated with respect to reference standard based on science or research to provide confidence to consumers
Individuals/Companies/industry have a great opportunity to collaborate with the IPI in product quality assurance, research, or education, from farm to Bedside
