Medicinal variety is being tested for various uses such as reducing the dreadful hallucinations that people with Parkinsonís can suffer from. I believe itís also used to reduce the worst epilepsy and alleviate MS symptoms. We just have to distinguish between what anyone can buy over the counter, what has to be prescribed and what currently has to be obtained from other less legitimate sources. I knew someone who grew their own, for their own use, discreetly.

I had serious, aches and pains in my arms and legs 3 months ago, I eventually got a GP appointment and after a blood test, diagnosed with PMR, Poly Myalgia Rumatica, so a 4 month course of Predisnilone, ( a steroid ) after 2 days all joint pains disappeared, and I was able to get back on my motor bike. I am 69.
Steroids are used for all sorts of inflammatory conditions.
Iíve been prescribed it many times over the years and it does feel like a miracle drug at reducing pain and increasing mobility. Unfortunately doctors will only prescribe it sparingly and are reluctant to use it long term due to itís horrendous side effects if taken for a long time or in high doses, so itís unsuitable for most long conditions.
Iíve got several painful inflammatory conditions and have had several treatments, including steroids, over the years. Iím now on biologics drugs which help to control the conditions but donít really overcome all of the pain in my damaged joints so I am also prescribed some pretty strong painkillers. Iím reluctant to take these on a regular basis as they can lead to dependency. I therefore now take CBD every night and it does help.
Cannabis has been used for centuries to help with pain. It still is in many parts of the world but since 1928 it has been illegal in the UK unless you have special dispensation, which is rarely given. However, as has been said, CBD, the Ďgoodí compounds of cannabis left once others compounds such as THC, the compound that gets you Ďhighí has been extracted, is legal.
The main problem with CBD is getting it at the right strength to help. Many of the products available in the UK have so little CBD that they are useless or are recommended in the wrong amounts. It pays to do some research then shop around. There is some very good advice here
