For the past week or so my legs have been killing me! I'm reluctantly increasing my Amitriptyline and I asked my Neurologist about Sativex and they said there is no way I could have it because it is only approved for MS, I've been reading about Cannabis and Hemp seeds and it looks very promising, I know it's illegal but the Hemp seeds are not, Health shops sell Hemp Oil and shelled seeds, I'm going to give them a try?
Has anyone tried them? this is the info from seeds on ebay: 261160852996

ENERGY BOOSTING IRON
Iron can sometimes be a difficult mineral to obtain, particularly on a restricted diet or for vegans and vegetarians; however, many of the Linwoods nutritious Superfoods provide a natural source of Iron. Iron supports oxygen transport around the body and the reproduction of red blood cells. When we are low in Iron we are low in energy, but as Hemp has 21% of your Recommended Daily&;Amount (RDA) in just two heaped dessert spoonfuls (30g/1oz), adding Hemp to any meal at any time of the day ensures you are including this valuable mineral in your diet.
Magnesium supports healthy bones, muscles and nerve function and energy metabolism. One serving (30g/1oz) provides 39% of your RDA. Magnesium is also required to assist the body in absorbing Calcium and is an essential mineral in our diet
