    Default cannabis on the nhs

    Since I was a child IV suffered with ADHD and always assumed id grow out of it, unfortunately that wasnít the case and I still suffer with it today. I went to my doctor a couple of years ago and was sent for a psychological evaluation and was re diagnosed with adult ADHD. I have since seen a few psychologists who all tried me on different medication none of which worked. Iíve always maintained that cannabis helped and after the failure of the drugs they tried me on told me they couldnít help me and if cannabis worked to carry on smoking it.
    Iíve just been to see a new psychologist who said heís going to try and get my doctor to prescribe me cannabis... now I thought cannabis wasnít available on the NHS? I know sativx is available but from what Iíve read up about it it doesnít seem like its designed to have the desired effect on me as its a 1-1 ratio of CBD and THC (if anyone has used it before it would be interesting to hear what you think about it) where as I need it to have a higher CBD content. I have since had a chat with my aunty and she told me that I can get a card which entitles me to buy cannabis legally from a shop near kings-cross. Has anyone else heard about this? Or is my aunty talking rubish?

    I am afraid she is. You can technically get sativex but you will struggle to get a prescription and if you do it's expensive.

    i know this post is a couple months old but still
    ok ive done a lot of research in to sativex as i suffer with sciatica sativex would be good for this ive spoken to people that use sativex as a medication and say its great they also make a chocolate mix with it poor in to ice cube trays let set then eat like a chocolate sweet the guy i was speaking with says one chocolate cures his pain for 4-5 hours depending sometimes more or less but also has him buzzing with the giggles for 3 or more hours to me this sounds great and would most definitely give this sativex a try but also still smoke me spliffs but it gets me wondering what else can be made from it hehehehe

    is there any sativex users on this forum let us know what you too think of it as a medi and a high.....

    Any doctor in this country can prescribe cannabis for an illness if they believe that cannabis will work for you, whether you get it or not is another thing. There is also nothing stopping you from going abroad to say Holland and seeing a doctor there to get it prescribed, then go to the pharmacy and get the prescription filled and bring it back through the red customs channel and declare it along with the prescription that was issued to you. NOW, if you do manage to get it through customs without problems you will either have to go back to holland when you want your prescription filled again or write to the HO and ask them to issue you with an import license for the cannabis which they will refuse.

    You have rights under the The Schengen Agreement...

    no its called tonys holistic center and i too have gone on behalf of someone to get cannabis - i buzzed the buzzer - they ask what your paitent number is - you tell them - they let you in , you go upstairs where you will see canna plants in growth - to the counter - give card hand over cash and pick bud from big tray sitting right on the desk- ive had people argue with me on here before about how its bullshite etc - no such card etc - well ive been there, i bought weed and it seemed very fuckin legal to me.

    The Schengen Agreement...contradicts it self if your british citizen living in holland and vacationing to the uk this ok if you dutch living in uk you cannot bring back threw customs using The Schengen Agreement...and only allow a 30 day supply i know that a guy has done this but the law has been corrected since as it was too misleading its always worth a try tho

    looks like he been a naughty boy tho quote; Herbalist Faces Jail For Importing Cannabis
    A herbalist who sells cannabis-based medicines to hundreds of multiple
    sclerosis, Aids and cancer patients is facing jail tomorrow after admitting
    that he tried to smuggle 25kg of cannabis into Britain from Switzerland.

    Tony Taylor, who runs an alternative medicine shop and "cannabis
    dispensary" in King's Cross, London, was arrested at Luton airport in March.

    He told Customs officers he had bought the cannabis to make specialised
    medicines for 700 patients, many of whom were referred to him by local GP
    surgeries and Aids clinics.
    and so on here is the link if ya wanna read
