You say there are great results from America .

Is there any approved clinical trial, with results.

Is there any information on correct dosage, numbers of time to take.

Is there any information on side effects.

I have read many claims, even watched a video interview .

The one thing in common is people are coy about the dosage, and usage.

From a personal point of view these post give false hope with no clarification.

There is only one cannabis, which is mind altering addictive substance,

And only servers to block the receptors in the brain.

You have also failed to provide link,!


Actually cannabis has never been addictive and has been used as medication for thousands of years. I was unaware that I needed to provide a link. However I will rectify the situation as soon as possible



If you request members to sign a petition , would it not be useful to provide a link to the particular petition as there are so many.


Signed and shared on fB!


Thankyou very much indeed

Thank You Mike, Due to Merv, my father finally listened and his doctor in California now has him on this treatment. His Doctor is an Ex Vietnam doctor and has since then always been on the cutting edge of Medican. He works in a hospital in Calif where this treatment is being used,and lucky for me I was able to bring it to the attention of my father and he went to see his doctor who was more then happy to start him on it. My father is doing much better now. He has gone from being crippled in a chair hardly able to walk to being able to visit friends and even celebrate Super Bowl Sunday with his best friend. It is not a cure, but it has changed his life. I am greatful to Merv for his help ! Long may he give advice!



I glad your father is feeling much better and getting out and about again. Wish him luck for the coming days and years

Thank You mike, he is a stubborn goat and it took quite a few phone calls where he slammed the phone down on me, he even threatened to burn down the trailer he lives in with him in it. But I didn't give up. I sent all the info from Merv off to my fathers Doctor (because he wouldn't listen even though above I said he did :( and a letter about his threats. The day his doctor received the paperwork, he went over to see him and talked some sense into him. My Dad respects Doug (his doctor) and finally listened. It doesn't matter the old goat isn't talking to me yet.... what matters is he is getting what he needs. He still smokes 2 cigs a day and drinks 1 bottle a beer. But hey ho, I can't win them all. At least he is feeling better (Doug, keeps me up-dated when he can) Dad is 84, he has lived longer then anyone in his family. What keeps him alive is that my sister is 28. But she is strong and really smart.... doing her Doctorate. She graduates in 3 years time and I don't know if he will be there. But at least for now, he is able to enjoy life a bit better.....

You and Merv should hook up he has been so helpful and knowledgeable for me, enough for me to send all the info to Doug.

We need more signatures, somehow we need to get the word out! If I think of anything I shall let you know. I wish you luck Mike, well done for putting it forward. Never get disheartened,it's people like you who help to change the world for the better, luck and Love, fran


ThAnkyou Not for your kind words of support. I truly hope your father sees you sisters graduation

"Mike, well done for putting it forward. Never get disheartened,it's people like you who help to change the world for the better, luck and Love, fran"

I got to be honest I do not care if it is oil or the plant it is a big no no as I have seen to many good friends go right down hill on Canopus so I rather stay like I arm


There seems to be a lot of promising research at the moment. Is there a link to your petition?


I hope all goes well for the future. I will post the link as soon as get on my computer. Not sure how to copy and paste on my kindle

The link under Stones rather disparaging comment works fine, Longlungs and I'm more than happy to sign it. Often the greatest detractors of cannabis are the ones with the least experience of its multi-faceted uses.


Lovely to 'see' you, Jane. xx

CBD oil is pretty useless against the fight for COPD. You need a high THC strain to treat COPD instead of CBD.


I have just been on along cruise and on these things they have speakers cos they reckon that the oldies need educating. Anyway, one of them had been something to do with the UN and drug regulation. He did a series of talks on the history of opium, cocaine, barbiturates etc and cannabis. He said that it is not physically addictive but it is emotionally addictive. You may be interested to know that it was only made illegal in Britain in the 1920s when there was a conference in Egypt to discuss opium and the Egyptian delegate stated that cannabis was as addictive. The British government panicked and banned it. This was closely followed by the US. He did emphasise of course that the toxins inhaled when smoking it are as bad, if not worse than tobacco. He could not see why the element of the drug which helps as a painkiller couldn't be isolated from the halucinatory factor asap.


Hi again mikeadams have signed the petition your link worked fine thank-you.Hope you get loads of others to sign and support.Goodluck my friend.Blessings to you Janex

Signed. Thanks for sharing


Signed.. and thanks for info


Don't be funny,the this country are avoiding it just like every thing else that matters ,to legalise it first then maybe we can make our own decisions,I bet the medical staff won't need to call on so many people if they get good meds,as long as it agrees with you,not everyone has a good experience with cannabis,some people swear by it ,as it has no side effects,not addictive,sleep well,eat well,no anxiety,or depression,so for me it is the perfect med.all my needs fulfilled in one go, that's emphysema alternative: steroids antibiotics anti depressant few other things .there is no comparison, with pharmaceuticals there is a com down u can feel worse getting it out of your system...yuck poison.

No. Copd as we all know is not curable. However what is shown by the usage of cannabis oil in america you become less breathless and require less use of standard inhalers. Providing you use it as a sopository there is no risk of hallucinations. Me I would prefer to swallow or cook with it. I have left the th group since it will never be legal here in the uk
