If I or anyone I know had cancer the last thing on my list of things to worry about would be having a criminal record for buying and manufacturing my own cannabis oil. To hell with the Law.


Sadly, it's really expensive to make RSO. It takes a lot of "bud" just to get a small amount of the extract. This is why oils and concentrates are so expensive. And I concur, to hell with the law! Though I would say that as I've been a cannabis user for 30 years.

situations like yours really piss me off.

why are you stuck on wanting the oil though?

weed is cheap everywhere.
go get some. have her take a couple hits. vape it.
does not matter

she will get an appetite and it will help with the naseua.
# the laws.

when it comes to # like this...

i get you have to play by the rules sometimes. if youre just trying to catch a buzz.

your people are sick though. they need it.

I'm also a C.P. (Chronic Pain) and am prescribed opiates as well for inoperable back/neck issues. I've been on the same dose for 15 years now but I've also been using Cannabis. I've also been using 'Kratom' which helps w/the pain but also My PTSD.

Here are some other herbs that I came across during My entry into "Ayurveda"

•Amla/Indian Gooseberry "The world's strongest anti-oxidant"

www.masteringdiabetes.org...

•Holy Basil

www.healthline.com...

I'm also sending You some other info re: Vitamin C

Here is a trailer re: "Kratom"

* It works so well the DEA™ wants to make it a Schedule 1 "narcotic"

If you can get the cbd, get it. Even without the thc, it has its own benefits.

Here in Canada, now that Cannabis is legal, it’s really hard to find just cbd. We can have it legally anywhere now, only if it has thc in it too. Full on sillyness. Cbd is the pain relief side of things, and it’s a schedule 2 substance, by itself. It used to be the opposite, and just before legalization they went around to the vape and pipe shops, and the vitamin stores, to seize all the cbd.

Doctors here don’t want to prescribe something that we can just go purchase on our own, but for days that arthritic people need to go drive around doing errands, or work days, we want our plain cbd back...

I now have legal weed, and black market cbd 😂😕

Why are UK consultants/specialist doctors loathe to prescribe this medicine?


Well, it's early days. This could be a reason... Source Indie


“It is important that clinicians, patients and their families are confident that any prescribed medication is both safe and effective.”

I wish you were in Canada.
Here, at one point, a doctor could of had a problem with the College of Physicians, much less so now due to some education.

THC counteracts the most beneficial aspects of CBD, so the less THC the better. Or so I'm told by people who I would expect should know.

Close, it's CBD that counters THC. While THC is psychoactive, CBD is an antipsychotic, which can have a calming effect on the 'high' created by THC (I hate the word 'high', lol).

THC has a treasure trove of medicinal and therapeutic benefits of its own, and while hile CBD does also, its not the be all and end all that many think it is.

There are also countless other beneficial phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes and terpenoids produced by
the plant, and these all work together synergistically in a process known as the entourage effect to provide effective relief.

The laws on cultivation have always been weird in this country... Tobacco, cacti, mushrooms. Usually it's the preparation part they get you on but it depends on the product/substance. It's kinda all over the place tbh.

Op? Best wishes in a speedy recovery for your daughter, not sure if you've put complaints in or have plans to take it above these docs but it'll definitely be worth a look.
