What a wonderful company & product! We could not be happier. My husband has suffered from very painful stomach spasms for years. Nothing would stop them. Then he took your Purely CBD Mexico CBD drops. The spasms stopped within 5 minutes! It was a literal miracle for us. We can’t thank you enough. We are spreading the word!

Your Club surveyed a portion of the membership asking how the Club could improve or other ideas that could enhance membership? To our surprise, the #1 request was that more participating businesses accept credit cards and still provide the VIP Club discount!

Your Club hears the membership loud and clear. We are and will visit all establishments participating in the VIP Club program between now and the end of the year. We’ll ask them to consider doing so. Upcoming flashes will alert the membership about those accepting credit cards while still providing the discount.

Meanwhile, we have upgraded the VIP Club webpage. Parts are still under construction. We urge members to go to New participating businesses and additional robust discounts have been inserted. We also appreciate our members’ feedback!

Here’s a sneak preview of the 2020 VIP Club Card, our 20th year.

OK! Are you ready for some good news?
