We encourage you to trash or use up the product you have had in the past as soon as possible. We strongly encourage all members of the Smoking Blend community to exercise caution when buying from (i call them) kids websites that were designed in three seconds and simply sell you all sorts of crap... and the owner doesn't even know what the manufacturers put in the Smoking blends. Be SMART and request a lab report before buying the product. If you have time call the Lab up and confirm the validity of the lab report before purchasing from the seller. Read More »
