--- An Urgent Message To Americans Considering CBD For Long-Term, Persistent Pain ---

WARNING:

This Crooked Corporation Has Just Secured 15 Patents From The U.S. Government… Designed To Legally ROB YOU Of The Last CBD “Strain” Proven By Scientists To Give Fast Pain-Relief

Now This Corporation Has Positioned Itself To Make Obscene Amounts Of Unethical Profit By Taking Advantage Of The 50 Million Americans Suffering From Long-Term, Persistent Pain...

Here's why the last remaining "heirloom" plant in America is the only “strain” they haven’t gotten their hands on - and may be our final hope...

There’s a NEW arms race brewing right here in America…

That’s being waged between the greediest corporations in the world.

And if you’re an American suffering from long-term, persistent pain…

You’re about to become the #1 casualty of this war.

This impending catastrophe is called the CBD Arms Race.

But unlike a nuclear arms race…

The greediest corporations in the world are scrambling in a mad dash to control the entire pain-relief market with what might be...

img11

...The world’s first ever “strain” of CBD that’s been discovered to work specifically for pain-relief.

This CBD “strain” is completely different from the kind you’ve tried or seen in stores or the internet.

(I’ll explain what a “strain” is in just a minute).

In fact, I guarantee you’ve NEVER seen this before in your life…

And these greedy corporations know...

This new “strain” holds the secret reason to why most other CBD oils are DUDS that won’t do squat for pain.

Their end-goal?

To patent and monopolize this powerful, natural pain-reliever…

Potentially price gouging their way to unethical profits…

And taking advantage of those with persistent, long-term pain.

The government won’t save us because they’ve turned a BLIND EYE to this…

Or perhaps they’re even supporting this arms race.

After all, they’ve already issued 15 patents to one of these greedy corporations…

img2

And in a few moments…

I’ll show you how these corporations behind the CBD Arms Race have been hiding the truth from you...

The key factor that determines whether or not CBD (cannabidiol) will help you find soothing pain-relief.

And finally, I’ll also explain why one of the last remaining “heirloom” cannabis plants in America…

May be our final hope to fight back.

So whether you’ve already tried CBD for pain…

img3

Or if you’ve heard about all the amazing things it can do, but have been on the fence about trying it...

I urge you to read on…

Because the outcome of this CBD Arms War will soon affect your ability to even access quality cannabidiol.

What’s more, I didn’t write this open letter just to expose these shady corporations…

But I write with hope in my heart…

That this letter can be a ray of light for you if you’ve been battling persistent, long-term pain.

img4

Because I know what it’s like.

You feel like you’re trapped in a broken, aging body.

And whether it was through some accident, genetics or just aging...

Pain has become an unwanted companion...

Like a ghost, constantly haunting your social life, career and hobbies.

Pain has become the #1 priority in your life…

Even though you wish from the bottom of your heart that it wasn’t.

Perhaps you can’t even remember what it was like to live a normal life without pain.

I know all this because I’ve devoted my life to helping folks, just like you…

Who are searching for a safe, natural solution for their pain.

But before I go any further, let me introduce myself:

My name is Tony Spencer - I’m a father and a husband...

And ever since I lost a close family member to long-term, persistent pain…

I’ve dedicated my life’s work to researching alternative medicine and helping others.

img5

Over the past 24 months, I’ve travelled across many different states in America…

To find the answer to WHY CBD doesn’t work for most people.

And on the way...

I’ve accidentally stumbled upon something
I wasn’t “supposed” to see...

arrow

The “CBD Arms Race” that’s being waged between some of the biggest cannabis corporations in the world.

And by chance, I found the most important factor that determines if CBD will work to give you pain-relief…

That NO ONE is telling you about…

I’m sure these greedy corporations would rather have you NOT know what this factor is…

Because it could flush their profits down the drain.

Perhaps more surprisingly...

You’ll also see that this has NOTHING to do the milligrams of CBD, nano-delivery system, or full-spectrum.

NONE of that matters in getting your CBD to be effective…

Unless you get this one thing right first.

The solution is linked to something called “the strain” your CBD is extracted from.

And I’ll show you everything you need to know about it in a moment.

By the way, I should mention...

This research is not something I’ve done on my own.

img6

It stems from the clinical studies run by one of the most prestigious neurologists in the world.

A man who’s been repeatedly named as America’s Top Physician, year after year.

And I’m about to show you a breakthrough discovery that even won the Nobel Prize…

So full credit where credit’s due.

All in all, if you want CBD to actually WORK and give you pain-relief…

Making it feel like you’ve just switched out your old, pain-riddled body for a brand-new one…

In the same way you’d change your old clothes for fresh ones from your closet...

img4

Please pay close attention.

Because in the next few minutes, I’m going to pull back the curtain…

And expose the web of lies and trickery that’s going to make your average politician look like a girl scout.

Plus, I’ll also reveal…

ques1-min_1

How a secretive German experiment nearly ended ALL living plant life on this planet… And what it means for BOTH your CBD and the food you buy at your supermarket

ques2-1

Why Mowgli Holmes - the CEO of a company that owns a massive database of cannabis genetics says that soon… “All of cannabis could be locked up...” And that people “could be sued for growing in their backyard” because of the CBD Arms Race.

ques1-min_1

And why Dr. Gruber - a Harvard doctor2, is investing all her time and money into a solution that combines CBD with certain “oils” in hopes to find an effective “strain”

Of course, I understand how this all sounds.

It sounds sensationalist.

But just because something is sensational, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

More often than not, the truth can be stranger than fiction.

That’s why I hope you’ll read on to the end…

img7

Because I’ll be showing you how to finally get soothing relief from your pain.

Plus, I’ll lay out every bit of dirt I’ve dug up on these greedy corporations.

I need you to be a witness here...

Lest you too become a victim of the monopolization and lies that affect what might be one of the most powerful, natural solutions for pain-relief!

So if you’re ready to see the FULL, unadulterated truth, let’s begin.

As I mentioned earlier, my name is Tony.

And my journey to seeking natural, pain-relieving solutions started unexpectedly with my aunt.

You see, in the last years of my aunt’s life…

I saw her suffer and break down with debilitating pain…

But she wasn’t always that way.

Back when she was still well…

She was always the life of the party.

As a child, I remember her as a joyful person who was always smiling, laughing and baking me her famous homemade cookies.

But as the years went on, she stopped smiling.

And she started visiting us less and less.

img8

She’d been hit with long-term, persistent pain in many of her joints.

Suffering until the end, my aunt passed pre-maturely - at an age that was far too young.

It crushed me to see my aunt go that way.

She’d lived life as a ball of joyous energy, spreading contagious laughter wherever she went…

Yet life had punished her with debilitating pain, right until her final moment.

It was unfair.

And it left a deep, bitter impression on me.

So when I had the opportunity to lead a start-up company that was focused on developing alternative, holistic medicine for those with long-term, persistent pain…

I jumped onboard immediately.

I couldn’t help my aunt - but I realized I could help others.

My primary role here was in research - developing safe but effective natural solutions to pain.

As such, I was often in contact with our customers.

We saw some great success in helping those with joint pain.

But my team and I had a loftier goal - to solve all types of pain, not just achy joints.

img9

And in 2018, when CBD went legal…

Our customers were the first to ask if we were going to offer CBD for pain management.

At the time, I’d only heard about CBD in passing.

So after doing some preliminary research…

I saw a lot of anecdotal evidence about how CBD was so effective for pain-relief.

But I didn’t see many clinical studies that supported this, as CBD was still very new at the time.

So I decided my first task was to find a quality, reputable source of cannabis plants to extract the CBD from…

And get our customers to “alpha test” these CBD samples.

That’s what started my long, 24 month journey…

And also led me to accidentally stumble across the CBD Arms Race that was happening at our doorstep… Right here in America.

img4

Little did I know at the time, that this journey would open a gigantic can of worms…

One that would uncover the true secret to why CBD works for some folks, but not for others.

But first, I’d have to dive into the CBD industry.

And in my efforts to find a quality source of CBD…

I started by travelling across America to meet cannabis plant farmers.

I gathered hundreds of samples from them…

Because I had heard from many folks that CBD was a “hit or miss.”

There weren’t any clinical studies that had tried to tackle this problem…

So I was determined to do the testing myself…

And see exactly what factors contributed to the effectiveness of CBD.

With the samples I had gotten, I started testing them out with small focus groups of our customers.

Some saw mild improvement.

But more disappointingly…

Many felt ZERO effects.

img10

Of course, I suggested increasing the amount of CBD they were taking (i.e. increasing the milligrams).

And I tested out isolates, full-spectrum, nano delivery systems and so on...

But for some reason…

None of it was working consistently.

For folks who didn’t feel any difference after taking CBD…

No matter how we played around with the dosage, spectrum or delivery system…

NOTHING worked.

I didn’t know why at the time…

But there was no “middle ground” at all in terms of pain-relieving effects.

Results were extremely hit or miss.

Was CBD really just a placebo effect?

arrow

But then, what about the clinical studies that have scientifically proven that CBD DOES have medicinal properties?

Were they all bogus too?

I had to know why these results were so random.

But I wasn’t going to find the answer from other clinical researchers.

Because the scientific community was divided into 2 groups:

Group #1 - those who saw anecdotal results first-hand and were convinced in their own minds that CBD had an effect…

And Group #2 - those that claimed there weren’t enough clinical studies to prove that CBD had any non-placebo effects.

But no one was really looking into WHY there was no “middle ground” when it came to CBD.

I decided to tackle this project myself.

But I didn’t make this decision lightly.

Because I had already sunk a huge amount of my own money and time into testing CBD with my customers…

My wife was worried this was turning into an unhealthy obsession.

But I just couldn’t get the image of my aunt out of my mind.

This question burned in my brain, day and night:

If CBD had been around back then…

img11
ques1-min_1

Would my aunt have been saved from all that pain and suffering?

And even though it was too late to help my aunt…

I knew there’d be thousands of other folks who were living in pain right now…

Who, just like my aunt - prescription meds couldn’t help.

That’s why I was determined to see it through to the end.

I had to push on to find out exactly if CBD was really just a placebo effect…

img4

Or if there was some other factor that nobody had figured out yet.

So I got on a plane once more…

And went out to meet more cannabis plant farmers.

Because I had come to the conclusion...

If CBD dosage, or spectrums, or delivery systems and so on made no difference…

img12

I figured it might have something to do with the SOURCE of the CBD.

Meaning, the type of cannabis plant the CBD was being extracted from.

And through one of my conversations with the various cannabis plant farmers I met…

One of them mentioned something extremely important…

That turned EVERYTHING around for me.

One of the farmers told me he’d just heard
a very strange rumor...

img4

There was a company that had popped out of nowhere a few years ago…

And they’d been getting a bunch of patents granted left and right.

Curious, I asked the farmer what exactly they were patenting.

And the farmer told me that this company was patenting genetic “strains” of specific cannabis plants.

Wait a minute.

img13
ques1-min_1

Why were these companies patenting cannabis plant genes?

Patenting is a tedious and expensive process…

And you wouldn’t do it unless you felt it’d give you a strong, competitive advantage.

ques1-min_1

Did these companies know something I didn’t?

That night, I got back on a plane home...

With my mind spinning with questions on why these companies were patenting cannabis “genetic strains.”

The moment I arrived home, I kissed my wife and put my kids to bed...

And bee-lined to my laptop.

The first place I decided to start with, was the “strains” of cannabis plants...

So what are cannabis “genetic strains?”

img4

Well, you probably already know that CBD is a compound extracted from the cannabis plant.

But there isn’t just ONE type of cannabis plant...

There are hundreds of different types called “strains.”

And just like how different “genetic strains” of dogs are called “breeds...”

(Like corgi, labrador, chihuahua and more)...

Cannabis plants can be split into breeds too, based on their genes.

img14

Each “genetic strain” causes the plant to have different flavors, aromas and even varying cannabinoid profiles.

(Cannabinoids are compounds like CBD, THC etc.).

So why was this mysterious company suddenly patenting these strains?

img4

To find the answer to this question, I had to dig deeper.

And I found it, hidden inside a relatively obscure clinical study...

Run by some of the most prestigious neurologists in the world.

In fact, this study was conducted by Dr. Eric Baron - neurologist at the Cleveland Center for Neuro-Restoration...

A man who’s repeatedly been named one of America’s Top Physicians...

And has over 30 peer reviewed articles and studies in neurology...3

Dr. Baron and his colleagues studied something that NOBODY else had been looking into.4

In a clinical study published just 2 years ago...

They tested to see whether there was a connection between the relief patients got from pain...

And the various types of cannabis strains that were used for treatment.

What they found shocked me.

Because these neurologists confirmed that different strains had varying degrees of effectiveness for specific health problems!

img15

For example...

A patient suffering from pain preferred a DIFFERENT type of strain...

Versus someone who had anxiety.

It was clear that each strain had something special about them...

Which created a unique combination of cannabinoid profiles...

That was specifically targeting different areas like pain, anxiety and so on.

In other words...

This study revealed that cannabis strains worked kind of like blood transfusions.

Just like how a person with Type A blood shouldn't get a transfusion of Type B...

You shouldn’t be getting CBD extracted from the wrong strain of cannabis for your health needs.

But conversely...

When you DO get CBD extracted from the right cannabis strain...

It’s like an elixir of life for your body!

This also explained why the DOSE of CBD, delivery system or spectrum hardly mattered…

UNLESS you got the strain right first.

Continuing with the blood transfusion analogy above…

It’s no use to pump MORE Type B blood into a person who has Type A blood.

Or use some fancy transfusion technology to increase the efficiency in “delivering” the blood to the patient.

It just won’t help them…

red-cell_1

Because from the get-go, they’re getting the wrong type of blood for their body!

In the same way, if you’ve got CBD extracted from a strain that’s more suited toward anxiety…

But you’re trying to use that strain to manage pain…

It’s not going to do you much good.

THAT’S why so many folks have experienced disappointing results with CBD.

And it was these thousands of different strains that were causing CBD to be such a “hit or miss” for many folks.

Because everyone was taking CBD non-discriminately for a wide range of health problems…

Without taking into account the actual strain they were extracting the CBD from!

If you’ve tried CBD before - think back to when you ordered your bottle...

img4

Did you ask the seller what strain the CBD was extracted from?

I’d wager a guess that you didn’t…

Because it's an aspect NO ONE is talking about.

All in all, the implications of this study was GROUNDBREAKING.

But while this was an extremely promising first clinical study…

doctor-test_1

Unfortunately, there weren’t anyone else that had even thought to test the thousands of different cannabis strains that were out there.

The lack of supporting studies disappointed me...

But it also made sense.

Because research licenses for cannabis are still very difficult to obtain (because the plant is still considered a schedule I drug5)...

And most studies were focusing on experimenting with CBD isolates without considering the strain.

That’s why the general public hardly knew about this landmark discovery.

You can search ANY community about CBD…

And you’ll find most folks are still talking about trying different milligrams of CBD…

Or getting full-spectrum or trying out different delivery systems (like nano/liposomals).

poster_1

But at the end of the day…

Most people give up, thinking that “CBD just doesn’t work for me.”

The reality is…

We may have been looking at the WRONG factor this entire time!

Because the clinical study I showed you above was no fluke…

It was tested rigorously and peer-reviewed by some of the best scientists in the world…

And their results showed that the strain may be the most important factor you need to get right FIRST…

Before the dosage, delivery system or spectrums begin to matter at all.

Now that I knew how important strains were…

I had a sneaking feeling I knew why this mysterious company was patenting strains.

But I had one more rabbit hole I needed to head into...

Because the farmer had given me one additional lead:

“BioTech Institute LLC.”

This was the name of the company that had been patenting cannabis plant strains.

After searching about this company online…

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

weed_1

A few years ago, a mysterious company called BioTech Institute had popped out of nowhere.

arrow

No one knew who was behind this company.

But rumors were floating around that BioTech was founded by a secretive billionaire with unclear motives.

Since 2014, they’d been filing for patents like crazy…

AND had been getting each of them granted, back-to-back.

Now keep in mind…

It’s hard enough to just get ONE patent granted.

The patenting process can take YEARS.

And it costs a small fortune to boot.

plants_1

Yet Biotech was snatching up patents on cannabis-extraction processes left and right.

And when CBD went legal with the 2018 Farm Bill…

They had been grabbing handfuls of patents on specific genetic STRAINS of cannabis plants.

info-banner

These are just a few examples of the patents they’d been granted…

To a staggering total of FIFTEEN.

More specifically, they were patenting genetic strains.

Remember, the groundbreaking study from neurologist Dr. Baron revealed...

You need to get the right STRAIN first…

img4

BEFORE you even think about the milligrams, delivery systems or spectrum.

And based on how BioTech was grabbing specific patents on cannabis strains…

It seemed they’d already caught onto this secret!

In other words, BioTech already knew that the strain was the most important factor.

Also, before I go any further…

Let me jump ahead a little and tell you:

The patents Biotech has are not narrow ones.

These are UTILITY patents - the strongest, strictest kind.

chemical_1

It gives BioTech the power to sue anyone…

Growers, shops and researchers - who even come just a little close to their strains.

Or if they feel like it, BioTech can hit them with a hefty licensing fee…

Filling their pockets up with pure profits.

Here’s how this ploy works:

Let’s say a farmer pays BioTech to grow their strain of cannabis.

They’d first have to pay a hefty sum to buy the seeds from BioTech.

And even after they grow the plants...

They CAN’T use the new seeds made by the plants they grew.

No, because BioTech “owns” that particular strain...

These growers can only buy more patented seeds.

So for each of these patents…

BioTech has a never ending CASH COW that keeps making them more money on autopilot.

img4

And right now…

The cannabis and CBD market is projected to hit $40 BILLION in market value…7

Which would make it the second most valuable crop in America, right after corn.

Meaning, if you’ve got enough utility patents on the RIGHT strains of cannabis…

I.e. the ones that actually produce effects…

money-weed_1

You’ve got the entire $40 Billion market in the palm of your hand.

img4

All you gotta do is squeeze and collect the cash.

Then again, this was nothing new.

There’s a long history of greedy corporations and institutions - like the Enron scandal, Lehman Brothers (2008 financial crisis)...

And more recently, you might have heard about the Turing Pharmaceuticals scandal…8

Where the CEO Martin Shkreli raised the cost of a life-saving drug by 5,000% (from $13.50 to $750 per pill)...

When it costs them LESS than a dollar to make.

Greed is at the core of every one of these scandals…

And perhaps BioTech would be next.

Piece by piece, it all began to make sense why BioTech was patenting these strains.

dollar_1

If you had a specific strain that was extremely effective for pain relief…

AND you had a patent on it…

The whole world would be forced to constantly pay you just to use the seeds of that patented plant.

Like Turing Pharmaceuticals - BioTech would have absolute control over the price of their patented seeds…

And if they decided to steeply raise the price, no one could complain.

It would be an investment that was worth the effort of patenting…

And the end-consumer (you) would shoulder the burden of these increased prices.

img4

I know this sounds bleak.

And I don’t derive any joy from saying these things…

But I feel it's my duty to report to you the full, transparent truth.

Fortunately, I’d soon find that one of the last remaining “heirloom” plants in America…

May hold the key to fighting back against these greedy corporations.

And this would lead me to discover what might be…

bottles_1

The world’s first ever “strain” of CBD that works specifically for pain.

But before I get too far ahead of myself...

There’s something else I need to show you.

You see, I discovered that certain industry insiders were already aware this was happening.

For example...

Mowgli Holmes - CEO of Phylos Bioscience 9 - a company that owns a massive database of cannabis genetics - said this about BioTech:

“Utility patents are big. Scary. All of cannabis could be locked up. They (BioTech) could sue people for growing in their own backyards.”

In other words…

Both the CEO of Phylos Biosciences AND BioTech know that the money is in patenting the right strain.

img4

Because it’s the medicinal properties in the STRAIN that contains the right profile for pain-relief.

Meaning, you need a specific strain for long-term, persistent pain.

And separate strain for anxiety and so on.

Notice none of these business moguls are talking about “taking more milligrams of CBD.”

Nor are they talking about isolates or full-spectrum.

Or nano tech or CBD digestibility.

plant-next_1

Because none of that stuff matters unless you’ve got the right strain.

These companies care about one thing - and one thing only - getting control of the most effective strains.

Remember, whoever owns the strain, owns the market.

And if you want CBD to relieve your pain…

You’ve GOT to get the right strain too.

But don’t lose hope, because BioTech hasn’t managed to patent every effective strain out there.

arrow

Mr. Holmes, the CEO from Phylos Bioscience said it best:

“The medical gold mines that we’re looking for are buried in random varieties that are spread around.”10

And I’d soon find this statement to be completely true.

Because there IS light at the end of this dark tunnel...

But first, I’d learn this corporate monopolization of the cannabis market would get A LOT worse.

Because it wasn’t JUST BioTech vying for absolute dictatorship of this $40B market.

Some of the BIGGEST cannabis companies out there have already caught onto what they were doing.

They can’t contest BioTech’s powerful utility patents…

So they’ve gone in a completely different, but WORSE direction.

And that’s to genetically engineer their OWN strains of cannabis plants.

In other words, GMO (genetically modified) cannabis is already happening right now.

img4

And GMO cannabis would be a “loophole” for these companies to get around BioTech’s utility patents.

For example, Canopy Growth Corporation - the LARGEST legal cannabis company in the world…11

Valued at $6.86 BILLION dollars, recently paid more than $300 Million in cash and shares to acquire Ebbu - a gene-editing company…12

You can bet dollars to donuts that Canopy Growth Corp will be creating their own GMO strains of cannabis to combat BioTech’s patents.

What’s worse, a company called Trait Biosciences has raised another $12.3 Million after creating the world’s first TRUE GMO cannabis plant.13 14 15

These are just a few examples of the giants who are looking to combat BioTech’s plans to control the cannabis and CBD market with GMO.

They all want a slice of this $40 Billion dollar pie.

Remember, whoever owns the strain, owns the market!

Because all of these shady corporations know it’s the STRAIN that matters.

Not milligrams of CBD. Not the nano delivery system. And certainly not isolates or full-spectrum.

None of that matters unless you get the right strain first.

drop_1

In short…

There’s a CBD Arms Race going on right now in America…

Between giants like BioTech and various other players in the cannabis industry.

They know it’s going to become one of the biggest markets in the U.S…

With over 50 million Americans all suffering from persistent, long-term pain.

And they’re all scrambling to gain control of the most effective strains for helping specific health problems like pain…

Because they know consumers will buy solutions that WORK.

All in all, this scares me. And it ought to scare you too.

img4

Because GMO is a step in the WRONG direction.

Remember what happened with the GMO-seed company Monsanto, who tried to splice fish genes into a tomato…16

ques1-min_1

And the public went into an uproar to protest against it?

protest_1
ques1-min_1

Maybe you also remember that much of this GMO produce went on to sell at Walmart WITHOUT labels?17

walmart_1

But what you’ve probably NEVER heard about is...

Roughly 30 years ago… A secretive German experiment with GMO almost ended ALL living plant life on Earth.

img4

I’m not kidding.

Back in 1990, a German company modified the genes of a bacterium called “Klebsiella planticola” to efficiently fermentate plant waste.19

Luckily, before it was released to the world…

Another doctor tested this same GMO bacteria and found that it had killed ALL the plants in her lab by overloading the soil with excess alcohol (a by-product of the bacteria).

This study halted the release of this GMO bacteria…

And the world dodged a deadly bullet.

Geneticist David Suzuki went on to say:20

genes_1

“The genetically engineered Klebsiella, could have ended all plant life on this continent. The implications of this single case are nothing short of terrifying.”

These are just a few of the shocking things GMO can do.

That’s why, with all these Billion Dollar corporations investing into GMO cannabis…

It’s a step in the WRONG direction.

Naturally, you DON’T want to be using GMO CBD.

You’d be wise to opt yourself (and your loved ones) out of the GMO experiment!

Now, you might be wondering…

What about all the smaller CBD companies - what role do they play in this CBD Arms Race?

img4

Well, most of these companies use cannabis that’s been selectively breeded.

This is different from GMO…

But still NOT helpful to you, as the end-consumer.

Here’s why:

Selective breeding is a process of breeding cannabis plants with desirable genes.21

The goal is to create a new “hybrid” plant that contains desirable traits from both parents.

oil_1

With the competition in the CBD and cannabis industry right now…

There’s been a big push to do more selective breeding to create new strains.22

It’s not as bad as GMO…

But it’s still not helpful in solving your health problems.

Because cannabis seed breeders are more concerned with making MONEY than making you well.

img4

You see, the primary focus of breeding is to create new strains that have high levels of CBD, but low THC.

(Since the laws state that your CBD has to be below 0.3% THC).

As a result, this makes CBD cheaper for them to produce (since each plant is genetically selected to produce more CBD)...

And doing this increases their profit margins…

But it doesn’t help YOU get the effective strains that contain the cannabinoid profile that relieves pain.

Again, most companies are too busy competing for lower costs and higher profits…

So all in all, neither GMO or selective breeding bodes well for you.

And between the arms race going on with GMO companies and BioTech…

doctor_1

Plus the other CBD companies looking to simply buy the cheapest wholesale CBD out there…

I fell smack bang in the middle…

Caught between a rock and a hard place.

Of course, I had zero interest in using GMO plants.

Nor did I want to make a quick buck off my customers.

They had placed their trust in me to find them an effective, safe solution.

And I wasn’t about to betray their expectations.

That’s why I wasn’t interested in cannabis that had been selectively breeded just to produce more CBD…

arrow

With no regard for whether or not the CBD was even having any effect for their customers.

Instead, I was determined to find the right strain.

I figured it was still early in the game…

And it was very likely that a powerful, but undiscovered strain still existed out there.

I just had to do a bit more digging and more testing...

container_1

And see for myself how the different strains helped with pain relief.

The next day, I booked several more plane tickets…

And set out to gather more varieties of strains to test with my customers.

This was my process:

I’d first gather a bunch of promising, NON-GMO cannabis strains from local farmers…

Then I’d get CBD extracted from these plants and gave them out to my customers.

Then I’d hear the reports and looked to see if there were any commonalities between the strains that worked…

Versus the ones that didn’t.

I repeated this process during a long, arduous journey that took 24 MONTHS.

img4

24 months of trial and error.

Unfortunately, by the end of it - I STILL didn’t have an answer.

I had spent almost all my money…

And my wife was beginning to think I’d gone crazy.

She urged me to quit this insane mission…

And just go back to focusing on other alternative solutions for pain.

I almost agreed.

Because I was at my wit’s end…

flask_1

Wondering if I had bitten off more than I could chew.

After all, I was just 1 guy who had a passion for helping others.

What could I possibly do against giants like BioTech - who had infinitely more resources than me?

img4

Just as I was about to give up…

I was venting all of my problems on the phone to a friendly old farmer I had met on my travels.

That’s when he gave me a critically important piece of the puzzle…

He told me that maybe I should go out to meet one of his farmer friends out in the countryside.

This friend had one of the very few “heirloom” cannabis plants in the country.

menphone_1

Of course, I had no idea what an “heirloom” plant was…

(Nor did I know, this would eventually lead me to what might be… The world’s first-ever “strain” of CBD that works specifically for pain).

So I asked him to tell me more about it.

He replied that it’d probably be better if I met his friend and asked my questions in person.

I was exhausted.

To meet his friend, I’d have to hit the road again.

But this was my last hope.

I knew I’d regret it forever if I gave up before following up with this one FINAL lead...

I wrote down the address of this “heirloom” keeper and headed out one last time.

When I arrived at this “heirloom” farmer’s ranch…

It looked no different from the hundreds of other ranches I’d been to.

So when I knocked on the door…

I was surprised when a relatively young man opened it.

He introduced himself as “Josh.”

He greeted me with a warm smile and told me to come inside.

(Note: To protect this farmer’s identity, I won’t be revealing the ranch’s location or his real name).

After exchanging some light conversation…

I dove right into the heart of it.

I told Josh I was looking for a “heirloom” cannabis plant.

I had no idea what it was, or why it was important…

But I’d been told to come here by a friend.

Josh smiled and told me he knew.

Our mutual friend had already filled him in.

Here’s what Josh told me about “heirloom” plants:

newplant_1

Heirloom strains are ancient lineages of special plants that have been cultivated for centuries by locals.

Unlike selectively bred or GMO plants - their genetics have NOT been messed around by humans.23

Instead, heirloom plants’ genes and traits came from adapting to their natural environments.

This process often takes hundreds of years…

And as a result, the superior genetics of heirloom plants are far more robust and stable.

Think of it like the difference in strength between a wild lion that’s survived the harsh African landscape…

farming_1

Versus a lion that was born and bred from generation-to-generation inside a zoo cage.

You can imagine how the wild lion would have far superior genetics just due to pure natural selection and surviving in a harsh environment.

In other words, heirloom plants are like a gift from nature...

Untouched by humans hands - and stronger than anything we could create in a lab.

But because heirloom plants often take many years growing in the natural environment…

They’re extremely rare.

It can’t be manufactured artificially by humans either - whether through GMO or selective breeding.

At this point, Josh told me to wait a moment and left the room.

When he came back, he handed me a small, dried leaf…

It looked no different from some dry herb that you’d get a store.

plaintin-hand_1

Josh instructed me to smell it.

When I did, I immediately noticed it was different from all the other cannabis plants I had gotten before.

This leaf had a deep, calming, earthy aroma…

A kind I had never smelled before in my life.

I noticeably felt more relaxed - as if my stresses were being washed away.

Josh then went on to explain this was one of the very few heirloom cannabis strains left in America.

It originated from Canada and came into the U.S. during the War of 1812.

Since then, the seeds of this rare heirloom strain had been preserved from generation to generation of local farmers.

Even when cannabis became illegal for nearly 60 years, between the 1930s and 1990s…

These farmers protected this heirloom seed and preserved it.

Now that the cannabis plant was being reintroduced to the world again…

The dry leaf I held in my hands was from one of the very few heirloom strains left in America.

Almost mesmerized…

I asked Josh if I could have a sample to extract the CBD from.

He agreed to give me some for a small price…

But warned me that he did not sell this strain wholesale.

It was extremely expensive to grow this heirloom cannabis plant...

plant-check_1

And he told me it was not suitable for CBD extraction because it produced only HALF of the CBD compared to most other strains of cannabis.

I said it was okay and told him a small sample would do for now.

After a few more hours of chatting, we parted ways and I headed back home.

On the way back, I was bristling with excitement…

And I couldn’t wait to test out the CBD extracted from this heirloom plant.

Perhaps something primal inside me indicated that this time, things would be different.

A few weeks later, I had a few sample bottles of CBD extracted from this heirloom cannabis plant…

And I gathered my focus group of customers again to test it out.

After handing out the sample bottles…

All I could do now was wait.

A day passed…

Then 2 days…

Another 3 days…

And just as I was about to burst out of impatience…

On the fourth day - as I was about to go for my morning jog…

men-mobile_1

A familiar “ding” sound rang from my phone.

I’d just gotten a message from one of my focus group members who had gotten the test sample of the heirloom CBD.

It read:

“Tony, I no longer have the soreness in my back muscles and hands that I was experiencing. I just mowed over 1.5 acres walking behind a mower and then trimming with a hand held trimmer for another hour or so with no pain afterward!”

This message came from Travis Bohannon - a 75 year old man with pain in his back and hands.24

Then over the next few days - I kept getting more and more messages like this.

And by the end of 3 weeks, I had the most positive response out of ALL the CBD samples I had tried!

There was clearly a difference in this CBD that was extracted from the heirloom plant.

But I was still skeptical...

So I met up with some folks in person to confirm the effects with my own eyes.

For example, I met one man who was suffering from really bad tremors and pain.

I told him to try this new heirloom CBD.

He took just 1ml from the dropper and held it under his tongue for 90 seconds…

And shockingly, within 15 minutes - his shaking had almost stopped completely!

No other CBD had been able to do this for him.

interview_1

I told him to take another ¼ drop under his tongue for an additional 90 seconds.

A few more minutes later - he COMPLETELY stopped shaking!

Once the tremors and pain stopped…

He grabbed a piece of paper and wrote his name over and over.

He looked up at me with tears in his eyes and told me he hadn’t been able to write his own name in THREE years.

img4

But thanks to this heirloom CBD, the tremors had stopped and the pain was gone too.

...I never could have imagined it’d be THIS potent!

It hit me that I might have accidentally discovered…

The world’s first ever heirloom strain of CBD that worked SPECIFICALLY for long-term, persistent pain.

But what made this heirloom plant so different?

I had to find out.

So I immediately sent the samples to a trusted lab to test for the cannabinoid profile.

container_1

(The “profile” is the mix of cannabinoids like CBD and THC - as well as how much of the percentages of each compound is inside the plant).

In addition to this, I also asked for extra tests - including the terpene profile.

What are terpenes?

img4

Well you see…

Inside the cannabis plant - there are a whole heap of different compounds.

You probably already know about CBD and THC.

But there are other compounds too...

Including oils called terpenes.

You see, terpenes are powerful compounds on their own…

And the discovery of their effects even won the Nobel Prize more than 100 years ago.25

terpenes_1

Since then, researchers have found that terpenes contain powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.

In fact…

In a paper published by Dr. Ruth Gallily (a researcher with over 136 publications in prestigious scientific journals)...26

She and her colleagues found that terpenes contain potent anti-inflammatory properties.27

Further research in this field has been done by Dr. Ethan Russo - one of the leading researchers in the field of medicinal cannabis.

He’s gone on record to say:

“Terpenes are critical components to the medicinal effects of cannabis. Cannabinoids and Terpenoids are half siblings."28

What’s more…

Dr. Gruber - a Harvard Neuroscientist seems to have caught onto the effectiveness of terpenes and CBD…29

And she’s started her own project - that aims to test varying combinations of terpenes and CBD for health benefits.

So how do terpenes work with cannabinoids?

img4

The way these terpenes work together with cannabinoids (like CBD) is called the “entourage effect.”

You might have heard of this term before…

Because it’s often thrown around willy-nilly by many CBD sellers as a marketing gimmick.

Even though the entourage effect in itself is no gimmick…

Most CBD products out there DON’T have the right terpene profile to provide pain-relief.

pain_1

There are a few terpenes that specifically help with anti-inflammation and pain-relief.

And remember how I said the STRAIN of cannabis plants mattered more than anything else?

Well, it turns out every single strain of cannabis has a different terpene profile too!

Meaning, not ALL terpenes work across the board for pain-relief.

In fact, some terpenes have no medicinal effect at all and simply give a unique flavor or smell to the plant.

And it's this combination of the RIGHT terpenes for pain…

That comes from getting the RIGHT strain of the cannabis plant - that creates consistent results!

In other words…

This heirloom plant had provided what might be, the world’s first-ever strain of CBD…

That worked specifically for pain - because it had the perfect match of terpenes and cannabinoids for pain-relief!

And unless your CBD is extracted from the right “strain” of cannabis…

growing-plant_1

Chances are it contains the wrong profile of terpenes and cannabinoids.

And THAT’S why companies like BioTech were busily patenting all the effective strains they could find.

And it’s also why the other billion-dollar cannabis companies are investing heavily into GMO…

So they can artificially CREATE the right mix of terpenes and cannabinoids.

And here I was…

By sheer determination and 24 months of grueling trial and error…

I had stumbled across what might potentially be one of the most powerful, original strains out there with this heirloom plant!

img4

I confirmed this by putting together a few initial samples of 750mg bottles that I decided to call “Spruce…”

And released this limited “beta testing” batch - to see if it really worked consistently across the board...

Here’s what one of the “beta-testers” named Michael, told me about his experience:

“The last several months have been unbearable [because of the pain]… I’m kind of a skeptic when it comes to holistic remedies… But after a couple of days, I started to experience amazing relief”

michael parsons

Like Michael’s story, many of the reports I was getting back from this “beta-testing” batch were amazing...

But I ran into a big additional problem.

This CBD was working so well - these folks kept asking for more.

Both for themselves and their friends.

In response, I went back to Josh - the farmer who grew this heirloom plant.

But when I asked him if we could start growing this in bulk…

To my surprise, Josh refused!

He reminded me…

When we first met, he warned me that this heirloom plant was not suitable for commercial production.

Because it was extremely difficult to grow…

thinking_1

And it only produced HALF the CBD that most other cannabis strains made.

And it's not like we could modify its genetics or breed it with another cannabis plant to give it traits that make it produce more CBD.

If we did that, it’d destroy the integrity of the heirloom plant…

The very thing that was giving such amazing pain-relieving results in the first place!

At the same time…

I knew this heirloom CBD was far too powerful to ignore.

I hadn’t come all this way just to give up.

So I shot Josh a counter offer...
