.3% THC is the designation for industrial hemp, globally accepted at this point.  if it is under that barrier, it qualifies as industrial hemp and no longer is subject to the same regulations as marijuana.

_________________________________________________________________________________

"Current hemp varieties grown in Canada and Europe are certified to have THC levels below 0.3 percent. The certification system originally developed in Europe to allow for the commercialization of industrial hemp considered the ratio of CBD to THC as well as the absolute percent THC. The original THC threshold was 0.8 percent. When varieties with lower levels of THC were developed by French breeders, the breeders were able to persuade the European Union to reduce the tolerance further, giving the French until recently a de facto monopoly of hemp seed varieties sold in the European Union.


Industrial hemp has a low THC content compared to its CBD content. THC is typically less than 1 percent. Certified varieties in Canada and Europe are bred with the THC level purposefully decreased to less than .3 percent, the same THC level under recommendation if hemp farming is legalized in Wisconsin.


Health Canada considers hemp a controlled substance due to the psychoactive compound, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) present in the species. Some varieties of hemp have over thirty times more THC than others. Hemp varieties with low levels (0.3%) of THC may be used to produce high quality fibre for paper, cloth and rope as well as grain for human consumption and animal feed.

 

The Farm Bill marks the first step toward the development of a legal hemp industry in the U.S. The law initiates an industrial hemp pilot program designed to "study the growth, cultivation, and marketing of industrial hemp," which the law defines as any part of the Cannibus sativa plant that contains less than 0.3% of THC.

 

Colorado hemp growers must also demonstrate to the CDA’s satisfaction that their crop will contain less than 0.3% THC. To enforce this limitation on THC content, the CDA will annually inspect one third of growers’ crops. Growers will be notified of inspections, and those who are growing marijuana illegally may have their hemp registration suspended or revoked and may face additional penalties."


__________________________________________________________________________________ 



Just some random quotes from various sources.  This is what is allowing for the legal sale of CBD rich Hemp oil.  it is derived from certified Industrial hemp, with less than .3% THC. And yes, the companies do have to provide proof of source material, as well as having to test every batch of bulk extract for proper THC/CBD ratio prior to importation, and they would currently lose their behinds if they were to use a high CBD low THC strain of "marijuana", which is NOT legal in any fashion in any non med mj state, save states like UT, KY, SC, etc, that have passed CBD laws for floral cannabis extracts. This IS regulated. You cannot just go importing 55 gal BARRELS of oil with THC in it without serious problems if your running a business such as this, just one step over a line in the sand.

I contend that the risk of personal prosecution for purchasing any grey area product like these off a major etailer is virtually nill such as the other examples you raised, and again those are intoxicants, not medicines, well, in most eyes anyway, especialy the law. (of course DMT and peyote are medicinal at some level, unquestionably DMT). That correlation still does not apply to Hemp based CBD oil , which is 100% legal due to the very plant it is derived from being classified in a different category from other marijuana.  CBD has never been considered in the legality of marijuana, all laws are based around THC, while nebulously lumping in the rest of the cannabinoids with it.  That dog wont hunt in 2014.  No one is going to be arrested for using CBD oils which do not intoxicate at any level or have any harmful side effects. Most of the fallout over things like spice, ie synthetic cannabinoids come after serious health consequences of use come to light and again, that is prosecuted at a distributor/manufacturer level, not a consumer level.

If this is the same thing as the oil Charlotte gets for her epilepsy (Charlotte Web), then why did her family have to move to Colorado? Why do all the epileptic kids families move to Colorado? They could just order this oil online and have it shipped to their state, wherever they live, no? I am just not understanding this. I live in FL and the governor just signed it into law to allow Charlotte's Web oil in FL for epileptic kids, cancer patients, and ppl with chronic pain (myself). It will be available to us in January 2015. Why would the governor need to sign it if this oil, anybody can order on amazon and have it shipped anywhere in the US, is the same thing?? Thank you for your answer.

I know somebody in central Europe, Czech Republic, who knows somebody who is making oil from Cannabis Sativa/industrial hemp. So could I legally import it to the US, for my personal use? Wouldn't it be confiscated in customs? Would the seller need to send the oil with a lab proof documentation of THC content being under 0.3? The reason I am asking is b/c the oil sold here, in the US, is too expensive for me (I am on disability). Thank you for your answer.

I take Dixie Dew Drops * oz Hemp oil for $150 which has ***mg CBD in the oil,Cibdex just came out, too with *** mg bottles. I also ordered some Real scientific hemp oil (RSHO) for $600 and this stuff works wonders at % CBD using about  rice grains full under my tongue it is highly concentrated. Pricey but it stopped an episode the only time I've used it.

Both are these are used sublingual under tongue to get to the brain quick. They are supplements and I can honestly tell you they have changed my life since coming off all the meds and changing my diet.PM me anytime if you have private message or need suggestions. I'll be updating the thread with my updates.

You say this is NOT hemp seed oil. So you mean that hemp seed oil sold as capsules in the supplement isle or as bottled oil for cooking is different from this oil made of the whole industrial hemp plant? Does it mean that the cooking oil does not have any CBD and therefore no healing effect? But this oil, made from the whole hemp plant, does have CBD with health healing properties, correct? My question may sound stupid to you, but I am just trying to understand the difference, thanks. I would think that the seeds growing on the industrial hemp plant would have the same CBD content as the rest of the plant..., no? I would think that industrial hemp/cannabis sativa does not have health healing property at all, regardless if the oil comes from seeds or the whole plant? I would think the healing property comes from cannabis indica. They are both the same cannabis family, yet different. Sativa does no healing, while indica does heal the body from different diseases? Thank you for your response.

PS: I just found this article explaining the difference between industrial hemp/cannabis sativa vs medical marijuana MMJ/cannabis indica: http://www.theweedblog.com/the-difference-between-indica-and-sativa-marijuana-plants/
It says:
 


Benefits of Sativa:
1. Feelings of well-being and at-ease
2. Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
3. Stimulates and energizes
4. Increases focus and creativity
5. Fights depression


 

Benefits of Indica:
1. Relieves body pain
2. Relaxes muscles
3. Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
4. Relieves headaches and migraines
5. Relieves anxiety or stress

hi Yvonne,

lots of questions, I will try my best to answer some of them for you.

"If this is the same thing as the oil Charlotte gets for her epilepsy (Charlotte Web), then why did her family have to move to Colorado? Why do all the epileptic kids families move to Colorado? They could just order this oil online and have it shipped to their state, wherever they live, no? I am just not understanding this. I live in FL and the governor just signed it into law to allow Charlotte's Web oil in FL for epileptic kids, cancer patients, and ppl with chronic pain (myself). It will be available to us in January 2015. Why would the governor need to sign it if this oil, anybody can order on amazon and have it shipped anywhere in the US, is the same thing?? Thank you for your answer."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the short answer is yes, this is the same substance, CBD or Cannabidiol. 

the long answer is that there are around 80 known cannabinoids at this point. we can test for a good half dozen of them currently in most labs testing cannabis, the other 70 some require esoteric methods of isolation that are not widely available or understood at this point due to the legality of studying cannabis.  So Charlotte's or R4 is a strain that was bred to be high in CBD and low in THC.  we know about the ratio's of those particular cannabinoids. we DONT know about the ratios of the other cannabinoids present in charlottes, so much of why it is effective for draevets is speculation at this point. We know that CBD has high anti epileptic properties, and we know that low THC is desirable at this point in time for children especially , due to the politics of cannabis, not necessarily any inherent toxicity to THC. But there is a lot of unquantifiable information as to what is going on with the other cannabinoids in charlotte's profile.

As far as the florida law and NY's horrible med law passed yesterday, these laws have everything to do with politics and nothing to do with Cannabis as a medicine.  Right now, politicians are jumping on the CBD bandwagon in droves, as it offers the medical benefit without the "high", so it is a nice clean way to embrace med mj without endorsing the plant. But everyone, patients alike are just jumping on the CBD train, without any understanding about how every strain of mj, and there are thousands, every one has a different cannabinoid makeup. THAT is why cannabis is so valuable as medicine and why it can treat soooo many different ailments. you cannot compare, or legalize in this case, one strain. its apples and oranges.  when you take away acess to the plant, such as new yorks laws and minnesota's, and make it so that people can only acess oils and tinctures produced by big pharma, you lose this wonderful diversity that is present in the plant.  or to legalize just charlottes, when there are many other strains out there that are high CBD, low THC.  These politicians don't even know what these words mean, its just political currency.

In answer to your question, these patients and politicians just are not aware that you can buy a hemp based equivalent legally right now in the US. its just ignorance is all. the only difference between charlottes and a hemp based product is the other cannabinoids present, that are not currently measured or understood. Since all the focus is on CBD, the only difference in the 2 is potency and cost effectiveness. Cannbis also contains dozens and dozens of terpenes, and these have huge medicinal effects as well.  It is ignorance to just talk about THC or CBD as a metric for cannabis to be measured against, there are too many other variables in Cannabis.

"You say this is NOT hemp seed oil. So you mean that hemp seed oil sold as capsules in the supplement isle or as bottled oil for cooking is different from this oil made of the whole industrial hemp plant? Does it mean that the cooking oil does not have any CBD and therefore no healing effect? But this oil, made from the whole hemp plant, does have CBD with health healing properties, correct? My question may sound stupid to you, but I am just trying to understand the difference, thanks. I would think that the seeds growing on the industrial hemp plant would have the same CBD content as the rest of the plant..., no? I would think that industrial hemp/cannabis sativa does not have health healing property at all, regardless if the oil comes from seeds or the whole plant? I would think the healing property comes from cannabis indica. They are both the same cannabis family, yet different. Sativa does no healing, while indica does heal the body from different diseases? Thank you for your response."

1. this is not hemp seed oil. hemp seed oil is a nutritional supplement with all sorts of goodies, but no cannabinoids. Hemp based CBD is obtained from the stems of the plant, not the seeds.
2. cooking oil has no CBD
3. basic cannabis botony:  there are 3 main varieties: sativa, indica, and ruderalis.  ALL contain cannabinoids that interact with your bodys own endocannabinoid system. ALL have healing properties.
the broad brushstroke descriptions are more descriptive of the effects of the "high" then the effects of the cannabinoids. very simply put, sativas work on the head, indicas work on the body. ruderalis has traditionally been used for "hemp" and has low enough levels of THC that is was overlooked for many decades medicinally.  additionally, there are very few "pure" sativas and indicas anymore, these were the original landrace strains from the jungles and afghan regions.  90% or more of cannabis these days is a hybrid of the 2. indicas grow low and bushy and take around 8 weeks to flower, perfect for indoor growing. sativas grow as tall as trees outside, and can take 5 or 6 months to flower, horrible for indoor growing. so breeders combined the 2 to reduce flower time and size, etc. Indicas are narcotic and heavy and sativas are light and speedy, euphoric. so breeders combine the 2 for balanced effects, to provide a little sativa up to the indica down. But both sativas and indicas are highly medicinal, It just depends on your condition. insomnia? pain? indica. ADD? lack of energy? creativity? sativas. and both contain medicinal levels of all the cannabinoids, no difference other than ratios. some people prefer to medicate with sativas, as they don't leave your body "stoned" and allow you to work and be energetic, where people in pain that want to relax and pass out similar to an opiate prefer indicas.

since all the laws against cannabis are based on THC content, and our early understanding of the plant emphasized THC, breeders bred cannabis to be high in THC and didn't pay attention to the other cannabinoids until the last decade or so, when understanding of CBD came to light. Medical preperations sold in US pharmacies in the late 1800s measured equal levels of THC/CBD in many cases, indicating a more balanced cannabinoid profile in herb found at that time. The money has been in THC for 50 years so that's what it was bred for. now there is money in CBD , so it is being bred back into the plant again, and the breeders are using high CBD ruderalis Hemp strains in some cases to achieve this.

now we go back and look at hemp and find that many stains of ruderalis happen to be high in CBD, as it was never bred out of the plant. But because the THC WAS bred out of the plant, we are left with a "legal" source for CBD in industrial hemp plants that have less than .3% THC content. It is the same CBD that is in sativas and indicas, its all the same Cannabidiol.

so there is no difference between the cannbidiol in charlottes and the CBD in hemp oil. the only difference, and this is KEY, is POTENCY. and potency = $$$$. Here is how it works:  Charlottes is about 20% CBD. if you take that plant, take the flowers, and make oil out of it, you can get an oil that is say 50%-80% concentrated cannabinoids.  Hemp plants range around 3-5% CBD and comes from the stems, an inferior source for extracts.  So the resulting extract will be significantly WEAKER than that derived from the flowers.  so you would simply have to take MORE hemp based product to arrive at the same therapeutic dosage.  and this is the problem atm. hemp CBD is seriously expensive / per potency. folks such as myself, or youself, on fixed incomes.......its cost prohibitive at the levels that you would want to use it perhaps. you would literally spend 1000s a month to do a cancer treatment say. now if it kills your tumor, its obviously worth the cost....but ya, that's the current problem with hemp CBD.  it depends on the level needed for the illness being treated and how cost effective that would be for someone.  the thing is, if you live in CO, you can go to a dispensary, get a cutting of charlottes, buy a few compact florescents and some pottign soil, and you can grow your own plant for next to nothing OR, you can simply buy the flowers, or buy the oil premade.  its infinatly cheaper, as well as much more potent. that's the current shortfall in hemp CBD as well as the unknown cannabinoids that may or may not be present in hemp oils.  The huge plus of course, is that it is a fully legal source of this substance that seems to be quite healthful and beneficial. 

as far as your friend in Europe, I would try to obtain it domestically. You can mail anything you want in the mail, customs only searchs so many packages, most get through no problem, that's why drugs are sent in the mail, lol, but not a great idea. I agree, its very expensive atm, that's why I have a website selling Hemp CBD oil, and I got my Med mj card to make my own oils *edit (for personal use, that reads weird, lol).  But its not snake oil, as far as CBD goes. it is a legitimate source of CBD atm, if one just wants to concentrate on CBD. Most research implys that there is much more than simply CBD at work when it comes to cannabis, and if I had say cancer, I would use nothing less that a full spectrum Cannabis oil with heavy levels of both CBD and THC.  But pure CBD seems to be very effective with specific ailments, especially seizure type activity, and that makes it interesting as it pertains to CVS for me, as I feel like CVS is boarderline seizure/spasm type activity. I will be experimenting with several high CBD stains this year. if money was not issue, I would certainly have tried a few of the stongest Hemp oils at this point.

besides Charlottes, there are many well known high CBD strains, Cannatonic, Pennywise, Harlequin and Dancehall are all very popular in the dispensaries atm. Cannatonic is like the granddaddy of the CBD stains, being one of the first isolated for high CBD and there is some thought that Charlottes is a reworking of Cannatonic. The irony of these idiotic laws like the one passed in florida, is that Charlottes would have never been isolated if it were not for that fact that the Stanley brothers owned dispensaries in CO and had legal growing operations running to supply them.  By having a legal grow, the Stanleys were able to run a big enough selection to breed Charlottes.  So the world has legal medical marijuana laws to thank for bring Charlottes into the national spotlight, exactly the type of laws that the florida law trys to dance around. Hopefully Florida's real vote passes later this year and does not wind up a mess like NY'S law did. Those 2 laws were really disappointing for patients this week, very discriminatory as to who can qualify, as well as setting up big business to run the distribution of the whole thing, very ugly and thankfully, not in line with the overall tone in the country.

CBD is both an amazing story medicinally, and a potentially bad story politically.  It allows laws like those passed in Florida to happen and that is horrible for the med movement currently. It allows politicians to say, we don't need med mj, people don't need to smoke the plant, we can just legalize this one substance, CBD, have it produced by big business and be done with the issue. no muss, no fuss. but it's completely ignorant from all perspectives, and leaves out the other 79 cannabinoids (and I havnt even talked about TERPENES, which is another story alltogther medicinally, and there are dozens and dozens of terpenes in Cannabis) that may also prove to be quite interesting if we can ever get to the point where people can acutally legally conduct research on the plant to find out.  It is an interesting double edge sword. 5 states have passed CBD specific laws this year. It is both forcing the issue and taking it in a new direction politically.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
I am always trying to educate myself more on this subject.
Re politics, there is justice in this world, at some point in time everybody will get sick and pray to God to help them! So those who oppose to make MMJ available to everybody suffering, will taste their own medicine!
Re FL, yes, I hope ppl will vote yes to MMJ in November.
From the CBD explanation here, I understand it should help spasms. I suffer from involuntarily bladder spasms, very painful.
Where can I view your product and price? There are several sellers on amazon.
Thank you again!

No problem, glad I could help a little.

I will pm you my webby addy, my site has links to some of the larger manufacturers of CBD oil, as well as links to amazon.  I like amazon as there are product reviews you can read from folks there, good to read no matter where you purchase oil from.

Amazing news!

We cant post links on the board , but if you google "Charlotte's Web medical cannabis soon to be widely available to Colorado children" , this story will come up at the top. Fantastic article and video piece for anyone interested in the topic of this thread.

As I wrote earlier in this thead, due to the fact that strains such as Charlotte's Web are so low in THC, they can actually be considered Hemp under the legal definition of the law despite the fact that they are not technically Hemp or pure Ruderalis. And it appears now that this has been done in CO.  They have classified Charlottes as Hemp, which will allow for extracts to be sold the same way that the Hemp based CBD extracts discussed at length in this thread are being sold. This is incredible news!

Since charlottes is a female Cannabis plant, that produces flowers, the extracts derived from the plant are of the best potency possible when contrasted with the Hemp CBD oils that are derived from the stalks and stems of the industrial hemp plant. This would represent the first fully legitimate legal CBD offering derived from Cannabis, and designating it as Hemp opens the door for other strains in development that offer similar cannabinoid profiles. i can assure you other breeders will be scrambling to produce sub .3% THC strains. Getting this substance from the female flowering plant is the preferred method of obtaining CBD at therapeutic levels. This marks a huge shift in our law and classification of Cannabis and pretty much renders the Florida law passed this last week as moot. (which is pretty funny as this story is a month old and preceeded the florida law so whatever politician that sponsored the law was unaware that the plant he approved had already been reclassified as legal hemp, highly comical)

As talked about earlier, this story does not even go into details about how this is actually news nationally now, not just news for folks in CO, due to the fact this can be legally sold in all 50 states, as most people including the news team that did this segment, are unaware of this current loophole in the law. The Stanley bros are about to become very wealthy men and it couldn't happen to nicer guys.

several states have passed CBD specific laws this year for CBD derived from Cannabis. this is different from CBD derived from Hemp, which is legal in all states. Currently, CBD derived from cannabis is only available legally in Med MJ states or states with specific exemptions.

 Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin all have passed some form of CBD laws this year. while these programs will take awhile to roll out, this is another option for residents of those states to look into if interested and you may not be aware of the programs. most of these programs will utilize regulated facilities to produce oils and extracts and do away with access to the plant for patients as well as having restricted criteria for what conditions may qualify for treatment.

Was just doing some reading on Realm of Carings website this morning, the folks that developed Charlottes Web and wanted to share this literature in this thread.

___________________________________________________________________________

from ROC Website:

Charlotte’s Web Hemp Strain

This special strain of hemp was developed by the Stanley family for the purposes of bringing the extremely beneficial cannabinoid, Cannabidiol or CBD, to patients who need the therapeutic benefits of the plant, without the psychoactivity accompanied by THC. There is a significant body of published research over the last 50 years, suggesting many potential benefits of CBD. These potential benefits include: anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, neuro-protective, neuro- genic, pain relieving, anti-psychotic, and anti-microbial. It is for these suggested properties that the Stanley’s were breeding for CBD. The anti-epileptic properties were known, but it was 5 year old Charlotte Figi who proved that this plant belonged first to patients with intractable epilepsy. Due to Charlotte’s remarkable recovery using the special hemp strain, it was only fitting to affectionately name the plant for her. Since that winter of 2012, when Charlotte began the treatment, more than 180 pediatric epilepsy patients have begun treatment. The Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil is also known as “Alepsia”, a Latin term which means “belonging to seizures”. This Hemp Oil is created by the Stanley Brothers and tested a minimum of three times through the process to ensure that the exact number milligrams of each major cannabinoid are known. This allows for patients to titrate dosing to a therapeutic level and understand the individual dosing needs.

The Importance of the Whole Plant and Specific Profile

Many published studies have concluded that there is an apparent synergy or “entourage effect” between different phyto-cannabinoids and plant terpenes. Professor Mechoulam, the first to isolate and synthesize THC and CBD, stated in one of his published papers that,

"This type of synergism may play a role in the widely held (but not experimentally based) view that in some cases plants are better drugs than the natural products isolated from them"

One clinical study specific to convulsive disorders, conducted in 2003 by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, found that a whole plant extract inhibited spasticity to a “comparable level”, while Cannabidiol alone was ineffective.

"Whilst SCE (standardized cannabis extract) inhibited spasticity in the mouse model of MS to a comparable level, it caused a more rapid onset of muscle relaxation, and a reduction in the time to maximum effect compared with Delta9THC alone. The Delta9THC-free extract or cannabidiol (CBD) caused no inhibition of spasticity…..SCE was a more potent and again more rapidly-acting anticonvulsant than isolated Delta9THC, but in this model, the Delta9THC-free extract also exhibited anticonvulsant activity. Cannabidiol did not inhibit seizures"

Centre for Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy

Through retrospective case study, and now prospective study, Charlotte’s Web is proving more and more to have the combination of terpenes and cannabinoids to complete the “entourage effect” for the reduction of seizure activity for many patients.

The Stanley brothers are continually breeding new strains with many varieties of Cannabinoids with the hopes of achieving this compound synergy for many different medical conditions. While many of these strains do not qualify as hemp and will have to be grown under strict medical marijuana regulations, Charlotte’s Web is a true hemp strain. This has been a very misunderstood distinction by the general public.


__________________________________________________________________________



The bit about whole plant extract effectiveness is key, and could provide an answer as to why we have had a board member respond only to full cannabis extract, when hemp CBD extract alone proved insufficient. Professor Mechoulam's comment on plants vs. component singled out of plants, such as western medicine tends to favor exactly illustrates the shortsightedness of laws like the ones currently being passed for the single cannabinoid CBD, when it is the entire plant that must be cleared for consumption and research, including THC.

some additional info I came across today for those worried about the legality of Hemp based CBD oils, it has come up a couple times in the thread and I finally ran across the actual ruling this morning while surfing another CBD story.

If you google "9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals hemp cannabinoids" , you will find the 2004 ruling that allows for the sale of Hemp based cannabinoids. Essentially, the ruling says the DEA may only regulate cannabinoids derived from marijuana.  Since Hemp is not technically "marijuana" due to its low THC content of under .3%, its cannabinoids are exempt from DEA regulation.

This is all of course completely ridiculous, as they are all the same cannabinoids and its all marijuana, same plants,  but that is the legal line in the sand that allows for Hemp based CBD oil to be sold in the US and this went unchallenged by DEA. so even the THC that is present in Hemp is legal the same way that the low levels of opiates in poppy seeds are legal when sold as food supplements and not medicine.

so there you have it. THC over .3% is Sched 1, no acceptable medical uses, will destroy your mind and send you straight to hell according to DEA. under .3% and its totally fine and legal when sold as food supplements, though they tried to ban that as well and were denied by this court ruling. and 100% synthetic THC created by big Pharma was downranked from Sched 2 to Sched 3 due to its immaculate safety record. go figure.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is not now, or has it ever been a Scheduled substance, only when considered under the umbrella of cannabinoids present in "marijuana" does it become a Schedule 1 substance.

Hey guys and gals I'm checking in! It's been a while and I'm nearly a year CVS free and I owe it all to CBD.

This guy knows his stuff like I do, he is a lot like me and the Stanley Bros who created Charlotte's Web, trying to help kids and people suffering. This pure CBD seems 3 times stronger than the strongest Dixie drops, worth a try considering how well dixie has done for me and this is half the price. I'm ordering for sure.

I love Dixie's cinnamon but once again I ordered and they took 5-6 weeks b/c of backlog. This is unacceptable but I don't like any of the others with Stevia extract, leaves an awful aftertaste so I've always gone back to Dixie Botanicals. I'm ready for new companies just like this new one above. stronger and cheaper! 

I'll have an occasional IBS morning and take drops to make things right and that's just about it. It's great before a meeting or when I'm with a big client. I'm selling tons of real estate and CVS is in my rear view window. If you have not used any cbd drops and you're suffering, get on the good health bandwagon and wake up or lose more of your life. Legal to ship to all 50 is all that matters. Health is # 1!! Do whatever is takes to make your life better and feel good again.  

Don't forgot your Nutribullets, I still do 2 a day!!! no exceptions, diet is everything, too [smile]
