Hemp Oil/ Medical Marijuana



Hey guys, I have a serious question concerning the topic.

My friends mom has cancer, and has been loosing a battle with it for years. She is constantly researching alternative options to her chemo which she takes but suffers terrible side effects from.

Lately she has been reading about possible benefits of Hemp Oil and just marijuana/ THC in general.

My question to you guys is; Isn't hemp oil legal and available to purchase?

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to make your own oil from marijuana seeds?

Also, do medical marijuana locations in Colorado sell foods and alternative ways to take it without smoking it?

Any information would be appreciated.

Hemp oil is legal but hard to come by as our country has to import 100% of it hemp stock so most hemp products in the U.S. carry a high price premium too. I would just like to make sure that you remember that Hemp is not the same as cannabis sativa/indica as it has no usuable amounts of THC. Even cannabis sativa/indica seeds contain NO USABLE amounts of THC. Any THC enriched oils are made with full grown plants and not from seed. Hemp and its oil contain unbelievable amounts of essential fatty acids which have all sorts of beneficial health properties but will not provide any sort of high. Dr. Brohner's *sp Magic Soap is a great castile soap that is made w/ a hemp oil base and I highly recommend it to anybody looking for dye/fragrance/adulterant free soap, oh and its fair trade and organic too.

E*tan it is my understading that the dispenseries in CO serve all sorts of edible cannabis products. Eating THC can drastically change the "high" that the user gets though. It has been my personal experience that THC laced products usually give me severe gas but it is just as likely caused by the THC enriched "medium" as by the THC itself. I would suggest a vaporizer if a person is going for smokeless methods of delivery as you get the "instant" effects of smoked delivery w/ out the harm caused by breathing in smoke.

Regardless I wish your friends mom the best of luck! Uphill battles are something I would almost never wish on someone else.

Turns out that the "hemp oil" she was asking me about is really oil made from buds.

She has found research, and shared it with me, that a very high concentration of THC can kill cancer cells and reduce the size of tumors.

She found a bunch of information about a guy in Canada who makes a super highly concentrated oil that basically a black paste that can be rubbed into the skin. I guess it does not provide any high whatsoever but it supposedly has been proven to kill cancer.

The guy uses a full pound of bud to create 2-3 oz of oil/paste. He claims that 2-3 oz will last you 3 months and could potentially make a huge reduction in cancer cells in your body.

I suggested to her that she try to get a medical marijuana card and start growing herself.

Not sure if anyone answered this (i only skimmed)....but yes, most dispensaries do carry THC options without smoking it. This is particularly useful for people with lung issues. It probably depends on the dispensaries but I know almost all contain cookies, brownies, and other edibles. I would not be surprised to see a THC oil as well, but I don't know that for a fact.


cheers,

hmmmm... such a shame some are so bold as to impose their way of life on people, even at the expense of other's very lives.

I say pine trees should be illegal too. They cause a fresh minty scent I find intolerable. ;)
