TOP REVIEWS FROM HISTORY OF MEDICAL CANNABIS
This was a brilliant introduction to the world of Medicinal Cannabis and I really enjoyed it.
I really liked this course it was very informative! There is so much dodgy information on the web on this topic and it is really nice to learn from a reliable source.
Very interesting info about the emerging science of Cannabis. So much we don't know and don't understand. Hopefully the politics can stop interfering with progress.
Muy buen curso, ideal para iniciar el camino de conocimiento correspondiente a la Cannabis medicinal.
