I'm a member of a nothing-to-do-with-lupus forum and the question of medical marijuana came up. Most the the members live in states in the US where marijuana is legal. I said that, if it were legal here, I'd like to see what prescribed CBD oil would do for pain. I was told that something along those lines is available at Holland and Barret but when I reasearched it, it seemed to be more hemp oil, dripped under the tongue and more useful for relaxation and sleep than pain.
Does anyone know more about it? I'm suspicious that if it was as good for pain as the stuff I have dispensed from the controlled medications cabinet then GPs would prescribe it or send me to Holland and Barrett.
I have no experience of street drugs at all. Even in my wild youth I didn't want to tinker with my brain.
The photo shows what happened when I first started stronger pain meds. It's freeform knitting, fondly titled "Mum's Trip" by my delightful off-spring.
