Modern medical marijuana genetics are more prolific and stronger than ever before. Each strain of medical marijuana has distinct characteristics and traits. This means that each strain has a unique genetic lineage, individual effects, odor, taste and THC percentage. As with all medicinal interventions, strains may affect each person and medical condition differently. These descriptions are meant as a guide. Be sure to speak with your medical marijuana physician about their recommendations based on your individual needs and medical conditions. All of these strains are available for purchase online at Trulieve.

    How does one use it? Is it in a vape pen, a pipe or bong, a liquid to be mixed with something, or a pill?

    HERBAL FORMULA

    I am a female patient with Myasthenia Gravis for 30 years and I have suffered tremendously because of this disorder. I had a thymectomy twenty five years ago and still have symptoms of MG. I came across Best Health Herbal Centre website after so many years researched through the internet. I was so desperate to find a way to treat this disorder naturally. Thank God for leading me to Best Health Herbal Centre. I started using Best Health Herbal Centre MG herbal formula this year. After 10 weeks of usage, my MG was totally reversed, symptoms like muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, double vision, fatigue, impaired voice, or shortness of breath disappeared completely..Am now 67 years old living MG free.
