ORIGINAL LAB RESULTS SENT TO ME MARCH 2019
Certificate of Analysis Sent is for Medella Sciences for their Concentrates/Extracts- ISOLATE, not their tincture I requested, and States:
CBD 3.53 wt% h/ 33.41 mg/ml
CBG .05 wt%/ .43 mg/mlC
No other Cannabinoids listed. Does not state how the CBD is extracted.
On April 25th, I received these updated Lab Results from the Company. Scroll Down for the email and explanation of my rank for them.
In this new test, notice the extra cannabinoid found. That is important in full spectrum oils.
Heavy metals, Microbials, Pathogenic Bacterial Contaminants, and Mycotoxin results all PASS. Some thing to keep in mind is there are trace elements in everything. Just because it says Not Detected (ND) does not mean completely absent. It means what was found is at such low results they don’t have to add it because it is below the specific ppm stated.
The Volatile Organic Compound Test was a PASS and were Not Detected. You can see under LIMIT, that is the parts per million USP recommended limits of Massachusettes Dept of Public Health, Butane and Propane is based on Colorado limits, (see the # 2 at bottom of lab above).
No Pesticide Testing Conducted yet due to the lab’s equipment being down, per representative in emails below.

My original notes:
*Contacted Cliffprice & Company and woman stated she did not know what a Certificate Of Analysis was and said they do NOT test ANY of their products.
*Email reply from a person from Medella Science, and they also CCed a person at Perry Pharmacy in the email: Sent me a COA on the CBD potency, but do NOT have FULL PANELS right now!!
RECENT EMAILS 4/15/19:
Notice the multiple threats below and need to tell me how incredible their sales are, when all I wanted back in March was a COA and full panel lab results:
Next, she admitted she sent me lab results with the wrong product that was being tested…which is why in my original rating I gave them a rating for the Isolate and the Tincture. It stated Isolate, yet had more than just CBD cannabinoids in there. But then tells me I need to educate myself on COA’s. I am not a doctor or a medical professional, HOWEVER, because of my post, they fixed it. Sounds like Whatever I am doing is working and these companies are starting to be accountable for what they tell and give customers.
They do have a proprietary method to remove THC. That’s cool.
Where she states that they will have pesticide testing, just not yet.
This company sent me their full panel labs and an unprofessional email with threats and intimidation through out. WOW! They admitted to sending a lab report that had isolate stated instead of Full spectrum, hence my original rating with cbd isolate and full spectrum. It said one thing, but the results shows multiple cannnabinoids and not just CBD. SO they contacted the lab and had it updated and send me full panels, minus pesticide testing. Below are my new notes:
I originally posted that they claimed to be 100% pure, I did correct that because I did not find it recently when looking at the site.
I originally gave them a 2 star rating because of their lack of testing on the pesticides, heavy metals, microbials, and residual solvents. They have since gotten testing done on all but pesticides due to lab equipment at 3rd party lab not working (per the email). I have updated their rank on the tests they provided me with.HOWEVER, after the threats, intimidation, and unprofessionalism the new calculated 3 star was dropped to 2 stars. I clearly state below my posts that I am not a doctor and the opinions are my own. And that ANY company can reach out with updated info and I would update it accordingly. This is not meant to attack anyone, it is simply to hold companies accountable.
However, the way the person wrote their email was extremely offensive and I honestly don’t feel comfortable making an order or working with them because of how they handled this interaction. You can tell the email was completely emotional. It started hard core threats and went on a tangent and eventually talked herself back down to end the email with “we kindly ask..” LOL
Thanks to Toni’s threatening email, I took her advice and “educated myself more” and found out through some digging that she is a #Pharmacy Director in Kansas at Queens Price Chopper (a chain of 4) and sells the CBD products in her pharmacy, and I FOUND SHE IS AN OWNER AND FOUNDER OF MEDELLA SCIENCES! It finally makes sense as to why the email was so nasty! Her daughter- in-law actually commented on my CANNAB.A.BE Post about this and said I was wrong about Toni. SO it caused me to do more research. That is when I found out about her son also being a part owner and that is hwere one of the emails came from, yet Toni’s name and title was signed. This got really weird yall.
I will be contacting the National Association Board of Pharmacy #NAPB in Missouri and in Kansas (she holds licenses in both states, I have both license numbers) about her threatening behavior towards potential customers. Also, I will be contacting the parent company, Queen Morris Ventures LLC that owns My Price Chopper because she is the Director for #6 & #7. I would have left this alone, but I feel she was using her RPh as an intimidation factor as she did not use it in the first email she sent.
Also, if she is a trained pharmacist, how did it take “uneducated me” to have them be proactive and contact the lab to correct the tests? I don’t have my RPh, yet even I saw the result for isolates had full spectrum properties. They are acting like labs are exclusive information…Don’t let these big companies control the CBD market with their high prices and ridiculous tactics.
Toni also educated me about the potency of CBD and isolates, etc. as if I had not looked at dozens of other company’s labs and didn’t know that there could be higher amounts of potency…or that I was basing my review on the labs she originally gave me that were listed as being for an isolate. Of course I will say 33.3 mg/g is low for an isolate! I can’t help the information was part garbage. Put crap in, Get Crap out. And I WILL NOT INTIMIDATED YALL!
The product’s proof is definitely getting better and shows low levels and passing levels of the outside and naturally occuring contaminants, has a nice array of terpenes, a few cannabinoids (I have see full spectrum oils with more cannabinoids than 2 or 3 from other companies), and a great lab testing their products. I look forward to receiving their pesticide results and adding it to the rank!
Make your own decision, as always, about any company I post….but as for me, I am staying away still. There are too many companies that have a much better bedside manner. Again, because of Toni’s email, I dug deeper and found that this company has an interesting business model. They have a ton of pharmacies that sell their products, and that is the only way to get it! VIA Pharmacy. You can buy CBD from companies all over the US and get it sent to your house! Those same companies have and previously had all of the full panel labs, at a lot cheaper, and more cannabinoids.
I totally appreciate Toni calling me out, it really made me get off of my ass and go into more depths about what this company, business model, and the people representing them are really all about. The Cannabis Culture and Community is not about this nasty attitude at ALL!!
So, the harassment continued….And Three theories!
Interesting turn of events happened Friday night. A woman made a post to inform me that the information, signed by Toni Shields RPh btw, is inaccurate and again insults my “educating.” So I set off to educate myself a little more on exactly what I’m missing. Before we go any further I have to thank the woman for contacting and insulting what we do here at Canna B.A.B.E. Without you coming here to harass us, we would have never made the one big connection we were looking for; WHO OWNS THIS COMPANY? Thank you, Priya Aggarwal Shields.
I quickly discover she is married to a Tyson Shields, that rings a bell, where have I seen that? Ah, I remember now…. That is the name attached to the email address that sent the harassing/threating, “or else ultimatums” email; Tshields@hotmail.com. Who owns the company? Does not come up on their company’s website, it is on a Seventh Scout and Box Site. Baam! Wouldn’t you know it, Toni Shields and Tyson Shields are two of the owners. At this time, I remember they are a Texas entity incorporated as an LLC (limited liability company). Being a Texan and Entrepreneur in Texas I go to the Secretary of State website. I quickly learn that Tyson Shields is the Registered Agent.
***Quick Registered Agent education for you future or current entrepreneurs- If you form an entity in any state or country, make sure your registered agent is a person you trust; it could be yourself. A registered agent is a person who receives service of process on your entities behalf. This person is who gets served on your entities behalf. Think Seth Rogan on Pineapple Express, lol. If your agent is not reliable and fails to inform you, your business can be subject to a court judgment without you having a chance to defend yourself. Many law firms offer this service for cheap, I’ve seen many around $125 a year. Again, you can be your own.***
Now, we know both Shields are owners of the business. This can explain the unprofessional emotionally charged email that led to an impromptu class on CBD that had nothing to do with what my rating was on. Next Q: So, is this familia? A quick search of the Tshields email address led to a twitter account verifying this email was in fact Tyson Shields email address. Facebook then told us of their relationship with a post you can see in the provided pics. This is a part familia owned business. I love seeing family owned business btw, it’s smart tax planning. This can help during tax season! It can spread wealth to your posterity or older generations while lowering your individual tax bracket, even if your child is young. Especially, in flow through entities such as LLC’s or S-Corps. Little FF (fun fact) for you.
Here’s where it gets interesting: If Tshields@hotmail.com is Tyson Shields email address, we came up with three theories:
Tyson Shields sent us that email and signed it as his mother because she is a licensed (RPh) pharmacist by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). Rut row, is Tyson using his mothers license to legitimatize himself to threaten patients/customers who were looking for high quality CBD? Remember, the email Toni Shields RPh originally communicated to me from was BCC’d in the email from Tyson’s email address.
Did Toni use her sons email address because the threatening email wouldn’t be associated with its business email address originally used?
They could have been hacked….
Either way, this is the last time Canna Babe will waste its valuable resources and research capabilities on this circus. This got unprofessional, quickly. We have licensed pharmacists sending threatening emails, family collusion, and a wife and daughter in law contacting us. Lol. CRAZY!!
I really hope their family increases their emotional intelligence and professionalism. If anyone wants to contact us, do so with respect. Do not send us emotionally charged emails with threatening or “or else ultimatums”. You get what you give to us. We love conversing and are happy to work with and collaborate with anyone in this industry.
They broke a 2500 hundred year old Sun Tzu Art of War rule: “Appear weak when you are strong, and strong, when you are weak.” Anyone coming out so hot and heavy is clearly weak.
Well ladies and gents, if you are still reading we would like to thank you for your time and know we are here for you. Know your rights (Anti-SLAPP), thanks Rick Perry! And thank you again to the Combat Veterans that make up the Canna B.A.B.E. team!
We don’t want to give them any more free publicity here, so we marked out their other information as seen below. This is what we found in our research to help us understand why we were threatened and what is going on.
Do you know of a CBD product or Company that you want more information on? By sending that information to me, you will help me in the search for a REAL HIGH QUALITY product at a good price! Help me expose the frauds! Not all CBD is created equally! Contact me in comments or send me an email @ email@example.com or message me on any of our Social Media Channels, preferably CANNAB.A.B.E.

I run a natural health and wellness shop in Kansas and a customer came in today and told me this product was being sold at the pharmacy across the street. It says Full Spectrum, so I was concerned because Kansas has a 0.0% THC policy. I wondered if they meant it was a broad spectrum product so I tried to find the lab. I have a 100% rate of not going to jail that I fully intend to keep, so I only have isolate and broad spectrum products in my shop. Not only could I not find the batch number they claim is on every bottle, I couldn’t find their lab reports available anywhere. Nearly all reputable companies have QR codes that take you right to their labs or at least have them on their websites readily available. I did, however, find your post. Thank you all for helping keep these companies accountable. I inquired about their labs and said I wanted info about their company and wholesale account policies. I am very upset to know the pharmacies in my small communities would carry products from such shady companies. For the sake of my community, I truly hope they will “educate themselves” about the products they sell. I’ll let you know if they send me anything.
Wow!! Thank you so much for the supportive and informational words. The people who emailed me are the actual owners of the company, as I found out through one of their family members contacting me on this post on Facebook! She told me I was lying about all of this….even though I am just giving screenshots of the information and emails I received…let’s just say things got really weird. LoL!
There is no reason CBD should even be on the shelf as a “pharmacy only” type thing. It’s not that serious you need a licensed pharmacist to sell it. Plenty of amazing brilliant people know about CBD that arent in the medical field. Lol! We def have to keep the public aware of the practices and structures these companies have and how they treat customers looking for information. It should all be easily accessible, up to date, and accurate…especially from a person who throws their pharmacist title around. Thank so much for your comment and support!!
No one will respond to me from the company, so I went to the local pharmacy that sells them. The people working there know nothing about it. The labs on display are over a year old and show it is Rick Simpson Oil with much higher content of CBD. My customers who have tried their CBD before coming to me all say it doesn’t work. What the customers are reporting is more consistent with the labs you have. Such a low dose it doesn’t do anything. While I love getting new customers and helping them learn more on their journey to better health and with fewer pharmaceuticals, I hate that they have already had a bad experience with CBD from these jokers. Keep up the good work, CannaB.A.B.E!!
Wow! Shows the class! Someone else commented below about their experience going into a pharmacy in oklahoma where the third owner is a pharmacist. I am glad yo uare doing your research for your patients. Unfortunately, they did not even catch that they had incorrect lab information until I said something about it. I am no pharmacist but even I saw that. AFter all of the unprofessionalism I witnessed and the poor communication, your kind words and verification really made my day!
Excellent research and information! Thank you! They (Medella Sciences) are selling their Cannaba Rx product at Uptown Grocery stores here in Oklahoma City. I thought it was strange that the pharmacist had it by the register and was trying to sell it to us, while at the same time bad-mouthing other CBD products in the store, so decided to look it up (The pharmacist even gave my wife and I a pamphlet on it, which did help to look up the company :). Thank you! You made it an easy choice for us and so glad we didn’t shell out the nearly $70 they are charging for it. I do, however, have one thing to add about the company. The pharmacist name at Uptown is Tracy Anderson. Prior to finding your web site, I looked up Medella Sciences on corporation wiki and found that Tracy (the pushy pharmacist) is actually part owner of the company. (https://www.corporationwiki.com/p/31z2cd/medella-sciences-llc). Also when I googled “Tracy Anderson Pharmacist”, it brought up a link for her working at Perry Pharmacy, which I believe is why you received an email from that pharmacy. So all this said, I may be making a call to the Uptown Grocery Manager to let him know that she’s pushing her own product, bad mouthing others, and that he/she may want to check out your web site regarding the Cannaba Rx product they’re selling. Again, I really appreciate all the work you shared on your site. I never would’ve gotten this far without it. Best Regards, William
WOW!! That is amazing! I was wondering why Tracy at Perry Pharmacy was CCed! So sounds like all 3 owners are very unprofessional! I am so glad you saved your money and did not purchase that! I am about to strike a deal with a manufacturer I believe to have some good quality oil for half the price of Medella and you can buy it online! You are a fantastic researcher! After all of the threats and nastiness we endured for those few days, your comment has made it all worth it! They really stirred the pot on themselves and just shows they are not someone to do business with. Thank you so much for sharing this information!! You made my day!
I’m a user of Cannaba Rx and I think it’s an amazing product! I’ve tried several different CBD treatments and they all suck! Cannaba RX is the only one that relieves my pain! Im in need of 2 hip replacements because of severe osteoarthritis and a-vascular necrosis and I’m on zero pain pills with Cannaba RX CBD gel. Now you tell me, who’s actually telling the truth? This writer or an actual user with real health problems? To me it seems like this company is giving you a run for your money and you’re just disgruntled?
That’s great you are having good results with this product! I am looking for a product for myself and documenting my journey. So far, personally, because of my experience with them I definitely can not recommend them. I vote with my dollar and believe the owners of a company are a reflection of the company and its integrity. Being insulted when given wrong information by the company is no way to treat a customer or any person. If you read the comments below the article you will see a couple of other people with similar stories of bad or no service by the company when asked. And also remember every person’s body chemistry is different and responds differently to different tinctures and cannabinoids and terpenes. Depending on the company and source of plant, those can vary a lot. Good luck with your hip replacements! CBD can really help with so many things.
Did you find a CBD company you like? If not, let me know and I’ll be happy to recommend a few I carry in my shop that I really like. I like one so much, I asked if I could become a wholesaler for them.
I have zeroed in on Hemp Meds so I could buy at wholesale…but nitn100% sold. What do you like? I would love a rec!:)
I sell Green Roads, but they are a little high for my neck of the woods. I LOVE what they are doing with terpenes!! The Relax bears are great for anxiety and I have a lot of customers with anxiety. The On the Go packs sell well for $8 at the checkout counter, but the bigger size bottles aren’t moving. Hemp Meds has a great 1000mg cream that I was getting through http://www.CBDVapeJuice.net for around $15 my customers, but the rest was high. CBDistillary had good deals on 0.5 and 1.0 gram isolate and what they called Terpsolates, but recently changed how I can order. I have such a small shop I can’t really afford their minimums now, so I formulate and package those products myself. I found a company called Rx CBD for You at a small show and tried them out. They outsold every other brand including Green Roads, CBDistillary, Diamond CBD (don’t get me started on that one!), and TetraMeds. I liked them so much, I asked to sell their products to other shops for them. They are a mom and pop out of Texas with a farm in Kentucky, but growing fast. As a one woman show, I always love fellow boot strappers!! They have QR codes to lab reports for every product and are constantly growing. You can check out some of their great products on my website (that occasionally works! Lol!) at http://www.DownToEarthPitt.com, or I can send you a wholesale price sheet. Just shoot me and email to DownToEarthPitt@gmail.com if you would like to know more. Just to compare: my 500mg oil is less than $40 retail and they have 50 mg each gummies!
