    Not so sure about Cannabis curing a stutter. I used to smoke for many years and still had my stutter in all that time. The only thing I can think of is that someone who was very anxious and stuttered, then Cannabis may sedate them a little and stop the stutter?
    My aunt had crippling Arthritis and was in agony with it. Eventually I persuaded her to try a small amount of Cannabis, she has smoked it ever since. Only a little when her pain gets bad but it is amazing how it transforms her. From being virtually unable to move and crying in pain to being able to get about her house and not in as much pain. I can only assume it relaxes the muscles or something like that. They really should research it more as it really could help many people.

    There seems to be confusion between cannabis or pot and medical marijuana
    Medical marijuana will not get you high it lacks the illegal THC but is high in CBD. There is a lot of research going into CBD and this is the marijuana that "can" be prescribed by a GP
    Anything expressed is my opinion only and is offered in good faith. It is either from my own experiance or what I have learned on my journey. Take it for what it is or leave it alone. With best wishes D.

    I get terrible nerve pain which catches up to me at night and makes sleep impossible. I mean like I’d lay in bed 10 hours and maybe sleep three hours total on and off. I find smoking it to be my favorite because the effects are immediate, and you can control you doses better. I’ve had success with both THC and CBD. Since I got my ny medical card I've been able to get access to low to no THC strains that are heavy on the CBD, and this is the stuff I have most often if I smoke. I also make CBD coconut oil to add to tea or other things. If you have specific questions I have answers! Not that I`m an expert by any means! If you`re unfamiliar with it let me just recommend, do NOT start with edibles. They are way too strong for beginners and a lot of people make the mistake of going there first because they don't want to smoke or vape.

    raw turmeric root is very good for joints , peel off the outer skin with a sharp knife and eat the orange flesh , dont over do it just a tablespoons worth , then eat something to take away the taste if you dont like it ,also keep it away from anything white as anything that comes in contact with it will end up orange.
    never rub anything on your skin you wouldnt eat as it will end up getting into your bloodstream..
    unplug any air fresheners as the chemicals get into your lungs and your blood causing headaches and much worse, im surprised the NHS dont warn people of cancers and suchlike caused by breathing in chemical sprays longterm ..
