A cannabis based medicine, Nabilone, is a treatment for nausea and vomiting.
Cannabis has been used medicinally and recreationally for hundreds of years.
There are also many cannabis based products available online without a prescription. The quality of these products can vary. It is impossible to know what substances they might contain. They could potentially be harmful to your health and may be illegal.
Sativex is a cannabis-based medicine. It is licensed in the UK for people with Multiple Sclerosis muscle spasticity that hasn’t improved with other treatments. Sativex is a liquid that you spray into your mouth.
A drug called dexanabinol which is a man made form of a chemical similar to that found in cannabis has been trialled in a phase 1 trial. This is an early trial that tries to work out whether or not the drug works in humans, what the correct dose is and what the side effects might be. The results are not available yet. You can read about the trial on our clinical trials database.
Cannabis is a class B drug in the UK. This means that it is illegal to have it, sell it or buy it.

No problem at all, I just didn’t want you to waste your money. It is very expensive, especially if you’re having to buy it on a regular basis. So for it to just evaporate is a waste of money, it’s so bad I didn’t expect it from such a big store that I use often for other things which are usually of good quality.
The proper oil has ‘THC’ the active ingredient’ in it. There’s a lot on the net about this oil but I’m afraid you’re not going to get the proper stuff in Holland and barratts but please don’t take my word for it do some research, as I’m doing myself research myself
