    I would like to get some of the cbd's but our local dispenaries are not allowed to sell any MJ products right now due to a county wide year moratorium. I have terrible back pain and my pain doc will not allow me to use MJ, it is either opiates or MJ not both. I cannot function on MJ during the day, especially when I am in school. I may try to contact one of our other D's in the north maybe they can help! I did make some at home but it still had THC and it was very potent, but it did cure my husband's cancer! yeah!!
