For years, I’ve had trouble maintaining my focus on the golf course. No matter how well or poorly I happen to be playing, it seems like my mind starts to wander on about hole 14. As a result, I make silly mistakes and my buddies end up with more of my money than they should. With that in mind, I was lucky enough to get my hands on some 500MG Focus Terpene Enhanced Broad Spectrum Tincture. Sure enough, I took one dose before my next round and the results were dramatic. Not only was I able to stay focused for the entire round, I convinced my partners to play another 18. I haven’t done that for a long time.

When I first heard about the revolutionary design of the Vero X1, I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical. It didn’t take long for that skepticism to subside when I put the ball in play, however.
