Where the THC from, and why Tribulus Terrestris extract contains more than 1-5ppm of THC?
Probably because of tribulus terrestris growns area with wildly plant Cannabis plant (Marijuana), and the farmers do not know it, and harvest all grass together. As recent years more request on tribulus terrestris extract, the raw herb suppliers do their best to harvest more herb. While interesting in CHina, there is a very strict and rigorous requirement on the tribulus terrestris used in medicine, only the fruit. Thus there is no plant extract supplier use fruit of tribulus, as the price is higher than stems.
In order to get free-THC Tribulus Terrestris extract, in our opinion, choosing the fruit of tribulus in good quality and sort out of other items, then according to the industry manufacturing process to produce, the qualified products definitely are available. At the same, please the buyers are open you eyes to find the real products with a reasonable price. Too Lower price in China, probably means slight different in quality, or along with future problems.
