At the time of writing, only 2 doctors have prescribed it The medical profession claim they are uneasy giving a medicine without scientific testing and proof of safety.
In a way, in this age of instant litigation, I can understand the doctors’ dilemma.
Would their insurers cover any resultant claim from the use of a medicine that has not gone through the normal scientific trials by NICE – (National Institute for-Health and Care Excellence),even though the government has approved it?
But I’m also suspicious. From my 30 years experience in herbal medicines, I know that the orthodox medical profession and the pharmaceutical companies do not like alternative medicines.
I would also like to see justification for the £1200. cost of the cbd oil obtained in the Netherlands.
This is because cannabis with THC is a powerful natural plant medicine, generally overlooked and swamped by the publicity, that THC, like alcohol, will induce intoxication highs if abused by excess. There is a difference between use and abuse.
Legal cannabis derived medical products will be seen as expensive, because of the testing for legal compliance that has to be done at every stage of production, from seed planting to final product.
But the price the parents paid seems extortionate and exploiting desperate parents is despicable.
The parents say they will be unable to afford another months supply the same way. But with the publicity given to their case surely common sense will break out and enable the child to get the medicine needed.
I’m sure it will happen, but if not, I would recommend they try cbd hemp Oil. There is confusion here I know, but I hope the answer below to the question – Is cbd Oil from the cannabis Plant Proper, and cbd Oil from cannabis hemp, the same?
Not Exactly. Legal cbd Oil is extracted from Industrial hemp, which is a Strain of the cannabis plant, historically grown as a source of fibre to make paper, textiles, rope, and the edible seeds used to produce oil.
