Through previous discussions you might recall that cannabidiol (CBD), alone, does not get you high.

Vanilla Kush genetics come from Kashmir and Afghan. The intense aromas from large, dense colas %u2013heavily speckled with red and gold trichromes %u2013 bring to mind wild vanilla and lavender, accented with lemon and orange peel. Once lit, the floral and herbal aromas become more concentrated and the smoke offers sweet flavors. Outdoor harvest time is the end of September. The THC is strong of 22%. The long lasting high allows the mind to relax and eases muscle tension.</span></a></p> Jeff Sessions Sued in Lawsuit Challenging the Constitutionality of the Controlled Substances Act http://www.thcfinder.com/marijuana-blog//2017/07/jeff-sessions-sued-in-lawsuit-challenging-the-constitutionality-of-the-controlled-substanc <p style="text-align: center;"> <a href="https://h6oec37nb4i3bwttw2x32ck1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/court-support-medical-marijuana-ronnie-chang.jpg"><img alt="" src="https://h6oec37nb4i3bwttw2x32ck1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/court-support-medical-marijuana-ronnie-chang.jpg" style="width: 450px; height: 450px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;" /></a></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.857em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; font-size: 14px; font-family: Roboto, Arial, sans-serif; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"> Beleaguered&rdquo; Attorney General Jeff Sessions was named a defendant today in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Controlled Substances Act as it pertains to Cannabis/Marijuana.
