NCI Well Connect
June 18, 2018
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that cannabis oil, oral cannabis, and cannabis smoking can cause major allergic reactions? We have seen this in numerous clients. If you are allergic to grass pollen, please be EXTRA careful with any cannabis-derived product. Remember that back in the old days, cannabis was called grass!

We are offering a one year NCI Well Connect Membership at 25% OFF at this link for the month of June! Get today's long-form issue by signing up today. For more details about NCI Well Connect Membership, see below.

Have a happy, healthy day! Steve and Bonnie
