This wasn't a dark web deal though, but a legit product that's designed as a 'completely legal and harm free way to unleash the miraculous health benefits of cannabis'.
It's active ingredient is cannabidiol (CBD), an oil extracted from the cannabis plant that contains little to no THC (the stuff that gets you high, hence the legality) but does purport to deliver medical benefits such as the soothing of anxiety, depression, insomnia and mood disorders.*

On its website, MediPen lists a staggering number of applications for CBD Free Cartons Of Newport Cigarettes, each linked to numerous studies on the relationship between the oil and the condition:
The list is impressive and presents CBD as some sort of panacea, and if it's accurate then the device (which costs £50) will be flying off the e-stores.
But does it actually work?First thing's first - it doesn't get you high Cheap Cartons Of Cigarettes, nor result in a feeling anything close to a weed high, sorry.
As for medicinal effects, I can only speak for the anxiety/depression side of things, from which I have suffered for a few years, and the pen did bring about a slight sense of calm and relaxation, though obviously there could have been an element of the placebo effect to this.
The idea that the MediPen is, as it claims to be, 'not psychoactive' but can psychologically help you feels paradoxical, but that's a matter for the UK's woefully inept drug legislation (which was again side-lined this month).
Whether the device can help with regards to the other conditions and illnesses remains to be seen, and a good deal more clinical studies need to be conducted.
