The Current Affairs of Acupuncture Needles in California

By NuHerbs Staff

Recently and unexpectedly, the California Board of Pharmacy has imposed a licensing regulation on the sales of acupuncture needles in California. Unbeknownst to all wholesalers and distributors statewide, including us at nuherbs Company, the news that every company must acquire a license from the California Board of Pharmacy in order to conduct our business came as a shock. As you may have observed, all companies in California have had to stop selling acupuncture needles.

We at nuherbs Company are diligently working on a solution to providing acupuncture needles to our customers. There are several bureaucratic hoops to jump through in order to obtain a drug wholesale license with the California Pharmacy Board. The application process may take minimally six months. Currently without this license, we must cease all sales of acupuncture needles. We sincerely apologize for our inability to supply your practice with acupuncture needles and any inconveniences that this may have caused.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to e-mail Wilson Lau at wilson@nuherbs.com.
