medicinal hemp oil

Many cannabis-based products are available to buy online, but their quality and content is not known. They may be illegal and potentially dangerous.

“Pure” products that only contain CBD, such as Epidyolex, do not carry these unknown risks linked with THC.

Can I get a prescription for medical cannabis?

You cannot get cannabis-based medicine from a GP – it can only be prescribed by a specialist hospital doctor.

Many people having chemotherapy will have periods where they feel sick or vomit.

It would only be considered when other treatments were not suitable or had not helped.

As CBD grows in popularity, so does the research on it but there are currently few clinical studies on the effects of CBD oil. As such, some of these claims are better supported by studies than others.

Proponents claim that CBD oil can treat a wide variety of health problems, including:

Anxiety

According to the investigators, men provided 300 mg of CBD exhibited less anxiety than those given a placebo. Interestingly, those provided 100 mg or 600 mg of CBD oil did not.

CBD oil is an extract of Cannabis indica or Cannabis sativa—the same plants that, when dried, make marijuana. CBD oil is believed by some to treat pain, reduce anxiety, and stimulate appetite in the same way that marijuana does, but without its psychoactive effects. CBD has also shown promise in treating certain types of seizures.

Medical marijuana is frequently prescribed to people with intractable (treatment-resistant) pain, including those with terminal cancer. There is some evidence that CBD contributes to this benefit.

CBD oil is usually taken orally by holding the oil under your tongue for as long as you can and then swallowing. Taking CBD orally provides a longer, slower onset (time to take effect) but the upside is it can give longer-lasting results. Another advantage is you can easily measure the exact dose.

How can you read your medication label?

Endocannabinoids are molecules similar to cannabinoids, but they’re produced by your body as needed to keep internal functions running smoothly.

Indica: Indica-leaning plants tend to produce dense, fat, heavy buds during the flowering stage. These strains are typically believed to give consumers a physical (body) high instead of a more of a mind (cerebral) high. Indica strains are often used as a muscle relaxant and are often consumed in the evenings to aid a good night’s sleep.

Sativa: Sativa plants take longer to grow and they yield less flower than Indica plants. Sativa strains of the weed plant are often said to offer users a more of a mind (cerebral), energetic, high. Sativa strains are therefore commonly used to enhance creativity and productivity.

Experts have identified two key endocannabinoids so far:
