    Hi John,

    Yes, a few have. If you put (Cannabis), in the search box near top right of the page you should find some of the threads on this.

    If you have problems with this, let me know and I will post links for you to follow.

    Love Terry
    TB once said that "The forum is still the best source for friendship and information."

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.

    I have not said this here I think, but I used to run the U.K.'s information resource on drug misuse - so I keep track in a vague sort of way of all things druggy.

    One thing to be careful about is that the supply of cannabis in the UK has changed quite a lot over the last 10 years where previously there were two sorts broadly - a weak version and a strong version (skunk).

    Over that time the strong version is more or less completely taken over from the weak version so this is why young people are increasingly being warned not to take cannabis whereas their parents might well have been safe having the odd spliff.

    Keeping an eye on the news for the little fella that needs cannabis oil for his seizures to be ok’d by the powers that be, then hopefully open to everyone that needs it or wants to give it try for the symptoms of this disease.

    Hi all, I have been taking CBD oil since diagnosis and have found it has relieved my twitching, but it does come back from time to time, I am not endorsing CBDas it is to early to say if it has any other benefits, it certainly doesn’t help with mood as I am currently very much down at the moment,
    I hope l can post something more positive in future,

    Love to you all, John
