Yes, well low THC and high CBD content is available.

Even available on amazon.

https://www.amazon.es/s?k=CBD+oil&__...ref=nb_sb_noss

More to choose from here and you would likely get something more tailored if you ask them for some advice.

It can be bought from Holland and Barrett in the UK so I should think that it shouldn't be a problem getting it in Spain.

Just bear in mind that there's an awful lot of nonsense talked about it and you can waste a lot of money buying something that might have no effect whatever.

A close relative of mine spent £many thousands on what purported to be high grade cannabis oil to treat her lung cancer - she eschewed any other treatment on the advice of a friend. It didn't end well.

Sandra ordered some online, don't know where from but it was delivered here, no problem.

There were a few small bottles/containers left after she died, I threw them away.

I can't answer your question about the legality of cannabis oil in Spain but you might be interested to watch a recent UK Channel 4 documentary on Bill Turnbull's battle against terminal cancer. Bill, a well-known broadcaster and former anchor man on the BBC breakfast programme, is filmed trying illegal cannabis oil which he buys from a guy who has been prosecuted numerous times for making and supplying the drug but who continues doing so because he firmly believes in its healing qualities. You can view the programme (assuming you have the means of watching UK catch-up TV!) at: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/...-staying-alive

I am always suspicious of products that claim to be a cure all for everything.

There doesn't appear to be any actual clinical evidence that it works - apart from controlling seizures. But there is plenty of research going on, so who knows. In the meantime, best to regard it as snake-oil.

Snake oil or not, when you are in pain from Crohnís and from arthritis youíll try almost anything.

Itís not an arm and a leg and any relief is better than none

Thanks peeps

I very much doubt that the OP is hoping for a cure from her illnesses.

Cannabis is used, as far as I know, as a relaxant and for pain relief. A friend of mine here was prescribed nose drops, but I'm not sure if it was an experimental treatment or not and not sure if it is restricted to this area, so it may even be available on the Seg Soc

With Over thirty years of nursing, Iím probably better placed than most to understand thereís no cure all medication, over thirty years of nursing also tells me that the relief of pain is still in its infancy, over thirty years of nursing patients with extreme pain also tells me, even if itís snake oil, if it helps the patients mentally and not physically then thatís ok with me.

I have found a local supplier of the oil and the plant. Iíll update once Iíve started the trial
