medical marijuana and COPD

I read an article on line that said medical marijuana reduces inflammation and provides better sleep. I am not to sure whether it was CBD (does not cause a high) or HTC ( causes a high. Does anyone have evidence or have tried it for your COPD?

" Hello macnsyl.. Yes I have heard of what you have read...infact I have been using CBD Oil for a number of months now with good results...my Dr is awear that I use it..And says if it works for me then he approves. I buy mine via Facebook.. But Holland and Barrett sell it too. There is NO! High with this oil as it's not got any highs in it... My Wife who is still a practing Veterinary Surgeon uses it a lot with the treatment of animals.. for many different variety of illnesses. I find for myself it has and does help with my breathing and also it seems to help with muscle spasms and my lupus..I wish you luck if you do try it..keep us informed won't You...Megan... "

I received some edibles containing 5 mg of HTC. CBD???? I took 1/2 at bed time last night. I slept very well until 3 AM when I awoke with congestion. The rest of the night was not very restful. Seemed to make me more congested. I will try it again and see what happens. Maybe i need CBD only. Comments?

" macnsyl..i hope you haven't taken the TLC today. That is pure cannabis which is illegal for one

Plus very damaging for your lungs. What you need to use which is legal, is,

CBD Oil.. it's the medical oil you need to try or use. As I said Holland and Barrett sell it.. I hope that your feeling much better today...Megan..."

Thanks for your concern. As you may know in Canada it is only a week before it becomes legal so right now no one it to concerned. However it looks like i need CBD. (oil or edibles?)How do you determine how much to use?

I haven't posted yet to introduce myself, but I would like to add my experience with CBD oil. I started using it for better sleep at night. I do not have any breathing problems at night as I do in the day. I may start taking this in the morning as well. I bought this originally for my dog's seizures which have significantly reduced her length of seizure and recovery. Also, she gets them further and further apart. There is something to this. I live in the states so I can get it legally by mail from Colorado

Hi, Willie Nelson a famous singer here in the US is 85 years old....he was diagnosed with emphysema when he was 42 years old...he stopped smoking this and now he v apes it? He's still touring. And, sounds...beautiful. He's 85, I know some of my beloved rockers who sound horrible.

If you do a search for the member named Swerv you should find his posts. He is using it and finds it helpful and if I remember correctly he explains what and how he uses it.
