There is a lot of information on the American Fibromyalgia sites about the various oils, patches etc, however if you are in the UK take great care as under certain circumstances you could run foul of the law.

Hi OWL64 welcome to our wonderful forum ☺ I'm sure you will come to find the forum invaluable in chatting to others who are going through the same experience as you, talking to others at different stages of their lives with Fibro and learning from their experiences.

It does help with the whole process and I wish I had found the site years ago. I have had Fibro for nearly 30 yrs and I'm still learning about it, like we all are.

if you look to the right of your screen you will see under "Related Posts' a number of the most recent links to the same subject. Hope this helps.

Please do go look at the mother site where you will find all the information you need and lots of useful links on Fibro and I look forward to chatting to you on the forum.

Hi OWL64

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance.

Unfortunately as far as I am aware they are not yet legal in the UK. From what I have read the only cannabis product that is legal is the drug, ''Sativex'' that can only be prescribed for patients with MS.

What is legal is CBD, which can be in oil or a vape. However, for this to be legal in the UK it has to have a THC content below 0.2%. It now has a medical classification as a medication. I have pasted you a link to the GOV.UK cache on this below:

I genuinely hope that this helps answer your question. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken
