    You can already sell propolis. What you can't do is make claims of medical benefits to sell it unless you are a medical doctor... even if it's common knowledge like the whole honey and allergies thing.

    You can if you prefix it with "I have been told" or "some folks believe" or something similar. :D

    I was just thinking if the drug companies come up with a medicine that uses propolis, there would be a greater and steady demand for it, and maybe a good income possible.

    Who's going to spend all that money (because propolis is so expensive) to help his/her prostate-cancer-stricken mice? It's a lot cheaper to just get a new mouse. :rolling:
