Medical Marijuana and ME....... UPDATESubmitted by Ira Freeman on Sun, 07/25/2010 - 21:03
Thanks for all the discussion below. It was really helpful and insightful. Well after thousands of dollars in tests and consulting with doctors on two continents, I don't have to have surgery, and the tumor is not cancerous. I just have to learn to live with it and control the pain. It was maybe just inflammation that caused the pain.
Anyway, I thought I should let people here know what I discovered on my journey to get the medicinal oil from hemp.
First off, in California you can get whatever you want with a prescription from a doc, and go to weedmaps.com to get your medicine. There you'll find most all of the locations in So. Cal all in one handy dandy website.
Also, to treat for cancer with the oil, it takes about 60 grams of the oil, which takes about a pound of medicinal buds. When you go get your prescription, MAKE SURE THEY SPECIFY HOW MUCH BUD YOU WILL NEED. So if you are going to make the 60 grams, make sure the doc puts down up to 1 pound on your prescription. That way if you get pulled over with the pound of medicine on your way to make your oil, you won't go to jail for dealing. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
Also, you can buy the oils from some locations, but Rick Simpson at www.phoenixtears.ca tells me not to do it as he doesn't trust the oils people sell. He says to buy the bud and make your own oil so that way you know what you are getting.
In case you are curious, a pound of good Indica ( the preferred strain for making the medicinal oil) will cost you about 4 to 6 grand, unless you grow it yourself. And maybe you can get pounds for 3 to $3,500 if you are dealing directly with a grower. But even then, these growers can usually get 4 grand and above for a pound. A small sum to save your life, for sure. But still a lot of money.
Here's my original post....
I woke up the other day with severe pain in my chest. I'm thinking I'm having a heart attack and I drive myself to the local emergency room. I spent all day there doing tests. Come to find out I have a mass on one of my lungs. I was a little dehydrated and this caused the sac around my lungs to rub on this nodule, hence the pain in my chest.
The doctor tells me I have to have it removed soon. I believe there is a medical industrial complex and it scares the shit out of me. About 20 years ago I had an abcess in the back of my throat and they wanted to operate after 10 million units of antibiotics did nothing for it. I called a Canadian herbalist and a simple gargle with echinacea and goldenseal tea dissolved it in 30 minutes
Lately I have been reading about this man in Canada who is healing people with the oil from marijuana. (www.phoenixtears.ca) I have a friend who is dying from cancer and refuses to try the oil because she believes the next miracle pill is going to cure her. Now with my recent issue, I want to try the oil like he explains in his videos. I emailed him and he tells me he is living in exile in Czechoslovakia and suggests I grow the plants myself and get the oil from my plants, as he doesn't trust the oils others sell.
Problem is it takes about 3 months to grow a plant(s) to produce about a pound of bud, which will create about 60 grams of this oil. I don't want to wait three months. AND I live in Arizona and simple posession is automatic jail time.
Now, I'm moving to California, (Commifornia to a westerner like me). I've already got the prescription and a place that sells it. I just have to get a lease and a valid CA id.
The videos at www.phoenixtears.ca say to use Indica.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated. And your prayers as well!
