Absolutely MK, it is great that you are doing so well on it. I have a cousin with Lupus, but she alas has difficulty walking. She is stuck with the usual meds, which are ineffective.

Oddly enough Ed . there was a programme on yesterday evening 'Country File' and they were telling of all the types of plants that being purposely grown in GB during WW1 .....to extract medicines for injuries of their armed forces .

absolutely great news....for Ava...but not very good really for others requiring the medication...its too much of a hoopla to get it...you need a specialist to sign off....here although cannabis is legal for medical use...many of the older drs still dont want to get involved in prescribing it..so its still a bit hard to get a prescription.....

My Brother in Law Fran, passed away last night in the US after a 5 year " battle" with cancer . He was very bad last week but still at home and one of the drugs he was taking was cannabis oil . I'm not sure how long he was on it for or how frequent , but my sister had a terrifying psychotic episode with him last week that was so bad , she locked herself in the bathroom until he calmed down . This man wouldn't hurt a fly but he frightened her that night .
He was on other medication as well so maybe it was a combination of them all that caused it .
