I’ve just heard Sue!!! yay!!! xx

By the end of the year apparently! From specialist doctors. They do want you to jump through a few hoops before getting it. Gits.

But overall an excellent thing. Not that I’m happy for those poor kids who’ve caused the law to be changed, but it is thanks to the plight of children.

CBD oil is legal and fairly easy to get.

i.e. pay man with the oil and a few days later it arrives.

it has had the THC removed so doesn’t get you high (spoilsports).

3 drops under my tongue gives me some relief from nerve pain.

not totally but it helps.

however as a child of the seventies “… ain’t nothing like the real thing baby…”

better than a kick up the bum though.

At last, they’ve listened to the voices of experts and not the voices of tabloid editors (Professor David Nutt must have mixed feelings about this…) Hopefully, we’ll start hearing tales of how this plant has helped, but I also suspect that we’ll be hearing some more Reefer Madness stories from the tabloids, because of their ideology and hatred of this plant. A great first step, but it’s tempered with the fact that it’s only one step and there will be hurdles to overcome along the way. However, it’s better than it was 10 years ago, so who knows where we’ll be ten years from now :slight_smile:

I forgot to say that the best thing to happen is for Cannabis to be rescheduled from a Schedule 1 drug - no medical value… to a Schedule 2 drug - the same category as Opium. This means that researchers won’t have to jump through hoops to try and do medical research on a substance that’s been deemed to have no medical properties. Their first lie has ended! Let the research begin.

let’s keep this in perspective … cannabis can cause mental health problems but on the other hand it will bring relief to many people with m.s. and other medical conditions.

That’s why I’m hoping that there’s a lot of research done to show what this plant can and can’t do. Reefer Madness has a lot to answer for. GW Pharmeceuticals, who make Sativex, also think that this plant has more to offer than the tabloids would have us believe: The new strain of cannabis that could help treat psychosis | Cannabis | The Guardian

They’re working on a treatment for schizophrenia, using cannabis.
