I am very pleased to have a mention on the honey colony website as a reviewer of their Superior Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Formula. The other reviewers are Kristin of A Life Well Read, Heather of The MS Life and Kristin of Mini 2Z – all fellow members of Chronic Illness Bloggers network.
My original review can be found here Review : Honey Colony Superior Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Formula for pain relief
The Drug Enforcement Administration in the USA announced earlier this month that all extracts of marijuana, including CBD, are illegal under federal law (Rolling Stone article Inside DEA Ban on Marijuana Extracts). I understand that this has triggered great debate in many communities and that there are legal challenges being made to determine whether the DEA has authority to exceed the Controlled Substance Act. Many suppliers of CBD & hemp products are reporting that sales will cease by 14th January 2017.
I wonder where this leaves the situation in the UK, particularly as the reviewed honey colony product is produced and shipped from the USA. Having read various pieces, the law in the UK seems to me to at best be grey! This article published on politics.co.uk by journalist Deej Sullivan sets out to examine Uk laws, the introduction of the Psychoactive Substances Act, the Misuse of Drugs Act and the role of government & the Home Office with respect to enforcing said Acts. I admit that I am not a great deal clearer!
I continue to use my product (it may not be quite clear on the website that I no longer take Oxycontin – last New Year I down to approx 80mg daily – and that the spinal cord stimulator delivers an electric current to the nervous system not drugs Spinal cord Stimulation) – and still find that it helps with muscle and joint pain resulting from my EDS.
