I know this and it is prescribed to people with epilepsy as well so it is slowly starting to get prescribed for all the conditions it cures or helps,but I was informed that I wasn't allowed to speak about it but this is why I'm asking if it's ok to talk about it now if not just delete the full thread

Not certain how Cannabis Oil gonna be judged written about on the forum, but it should be ok, as it's being talked about as a medicine, not as any drug for recogrational use. :-D


I have been aware of it for a while (might have read it about on online from an Amercian site at some point), and of course my little brain was refreshed reading about the poor little girl in Australia who benefitted from it greatly (and her poor father who was then refused access to his child!).


I do belive that in the future, when people are ready to re-assess it, not just blindly claiming "it's a drug - it must be awful!", this will benefit a great many people. The oil is made so that it doesn't make people high, but still leaves the benefits of it, so people can find relief. However, it might be that it is of no help to people with fibro. But for cancer sufferers it seems that this might one day be of great help (or, considering how stubborn governments are - cancer might well be cured before they allow the use of cannabis oil!).

When you start thinking about - is coffee not a drug? What about asprin?

Alcohol on the other hand they are more than happy to be legal... and the amount of damage this stuff makes is unbelieveable. If alcohol only came on the maket today there's no way it would be legal.

Under The Misuse Of Drugs Act 1971 Cannabis Oil is rated as a Class A substance and therefore illegal.

I will never take an illegal substance, even if it does help.
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

Yes I know the difference and are you trying to say after all these years nobody has reported a cannabis overdose, do a bit of research and see how much you would need to consume before you died and you would be sleeping like a baby a long time before you got anywhere near that amount

It is just a conspiracy that cannabis is illegal so big pharma can make rubbish drugs that don't work and make billions of dollars off

Alright... you gotta help me out here, Brian... I've been searching, but so far cannot find any side-effects to cannabis oil. Surely there's gotta be some, however small.

Was just entertaining myself whilst watching "Ted", wanting to see how it compared to other drugs. But my searches came up with nothing at all, only thing I've found is that it's made from Charlotte's Web, and suitable for all ages, as it doesn't actually make people high. Legalised in a few states (US) already, and seems there's more to come, for the treatment of children with seisures.


As opposed to these drugs that many swallow without a single though:

Naproxen:

Scratch the "these drugs"... was gonna list a few, but with the ridiculously long list of side effects, I think just listing one drug is enough. :lol:

Smoking cannabis however:
Dizziness
Shallow breathing
Red eyes and dilated pupils
Dry mouth
Increased appetite
Slowed reaction time
Increased heart rate
Lower blood pressure
Increase bleeding

But... the above is related to smoking it. It will have the same medical effects, but also give the "high" effect. The cannabis oil does not make people high. As mentioned at the top of the post, I have not yet been able to find any side effects mentioned for the cannabis oil... if not Brian, hopefully someone else can help out!

Charlotte's web was a strain made for a little girl called Charlotte figi who suffered over 300 seizures a week then once she started the oil it went down to 5 a week then eventually none but she didn't smoke it she ate the oil as in most cases eating it works best except for skin cancer or burns then it is used as a tropical solution

There is to main ingredients in cannabis oil THC and CBD,THC is the bit that gets you stoned but is also needed in some cancer cures so you could call that a side effect of cannabis oil where as CBD doesn't get you stoned and it helps with a multitude of cancers and illnesses,THC destroys cancer cells but not the good cells

This would be my list of "side effects" of cannabis when you first start it
Tiredness=good nights sleep
Would effect driving=so don't drive if taking THC based cannabis
Munchies= have some food ready as you'll hit the munchies and everything will taste great

I can't think of anymore but I can think of loads of things it helps or cures I have Rick Simpson's E-book if you would like a copy pm me your email address and I'll send you a copy and you can read what stuff it cures/helps

Peoples views on this plant being a bad drug is all propaganda even the male versions of the plant hemp has healing powers plus you can make so many different materials out of it

Yes Phoenix Tears is Ricks website

As much as I've read and I've read a lot on CBD and THC and there is no bad side effects it's all good,the sooner it's legalised the better in the UK
