  • The difference is a fancy name for POT,WEED,CANNABIS,HEMP,so our congress members and senators could continue to work the laws filling there PPP civic core ”human trafficking American style”and filling anyone going to the doctor with 10 prescriptions that have a list 3 pages of death defying side effects while they have been approving medication for 20 years and charging the taxpayers 100 times for seniors and Medicaid,everyone needs to look at the side effects of every medication they are putting in their bodies and then try CBD preferably made locally NOT approved or poisoned by our fda or chemical companies called pharmaceutical companies,they have panicked trying to patten a pot plant and it’s not for them it for EVERYONE! Menopause is a thing of the past,hot flashes-no more! Switzerland has used CBD for head trauma patients for years while our greedy corporate leaders refuse to allow us our right,hemp won world war 1 and possibly 2,why did we have to kill all the trees when we could grow hem for ANYTHING
