Cannibus Oil In South Africa

Cannibus Oil In South Africa

Hi there. I have read a lot of the comments about this oil with everyone giving positive feedback but they are all from overseas where it is legal. Is there anyone in south africa that used it and give me some detail. I am desperate to stop taking all my meds

I have used and am using the oil. At first you just need to get the dosage right for you. If you drink too much it puts you on a high. Then just lower the dosage. It has definitely improved my health. Mentally and physically. I have a lot less pain.

Kristie I was on the Fentanyl patch. I started using cannabis edibles and I'm off the patch. For me it didn't take the pain away like the pain meds so much as it narrowed my focus. If you take it and focus on the pain you will be in pain. If you focus your attention to some thing else you forget the pain. I focus on my artwork and the pain fades away. It takes a little bit to get used to it and to learn how to use it but it's so much better for your body then the pain meds. .

Hi Elmarie

Unfortunately it is still not legal in South Africa. My husband got me some cannibus oil that he got from someone's family member who had someone with cancer that used the oil. I tried it and I will never use it again. I felt out of control and the next day my pain was even worse. Why don't you go and see a Homeopath? I went to DUT here in Durban where they have students and professors taking care of you and they don't stop until they get something that makes your pain less and have more energy to cope with the pain. Homeopaths looks for the reason you got Fibromyalgia and everyone having fibromyalgia got it at a different stages of our lives. They don't treat Fibromyalgia, they treat the cause of your Fibromyalgia. I'm a different person since I started with their treatment. They also discovered that I am diabetic and that was the main reason my body was in distress.

I read another article on cannabis oil. It's now legal in all 50 states. Google it.

I have not tried the Cannabis Oil, but you can get it in MMJ shops. It is about $24 a bottle. I use prescription Voltaren gel and it works great for me. My insurance pays for most of it. I've never heard of DRINKING it.
