RE: Bisabolol terpene

The advertised content values for Bisabolol terpene were inaccurate on the labels. The laboratory testing results were found to be in error and the above listed products do not contain the levels of Bisabolol reported on the labels. The products contain a package insert stating that Bisabolol inhibits cancer cell growth and fights leukemia; this statement is not approved by the FDA.

FDA disclaimer states, “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

Patients who have the above mentioned products in their possession may return them to the dispensary in which the purchase was made.

      What is "significant progress"?


      The Division is aware of the business 420 Tours Las Vegas (, and similar tour businesses operating in Nevada that provide a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana and transportation to a dispensary. The 420 Tours website incorrectly implies that the recommendation and ID are the only requirement needed to legally purchase medical marijuana.

      The patient must possess a valid medical marijuana card issued by a State or County and a matching government issued identification card to purchase medical marijuana from a dispensary. Please note that any dispensary discovered selling medical marijuana to individuals using such tour business who do not comply with Nevada law could be subject to the revocation of their registration certificate.

      Please access the policy, Procedures for Selling Medical Marijuana to Nonresident Patients, and the associated FAQs from the right side of this page.
