After A Decade Of Testing, Israeli Medical Cannabis Comes To The US
Cannabis is still federally illegal, so while more than 30 US states allow doctors to recommend it, there is very little medical testing of the substance in America.

Now Tikun Olam, an Israeli company that has been studying medical cannabis for over a decade, is bringing their tested strains and proprietary genetics to the US market.
The company’s line of oils, tinctures, topicals and other delivery forms is based on six proprietary cannabis strains, and is currently available in Delaware and Washington state, with California and Florida sales coming soon.
