I was wondering if anyone else had read about the use of canabis oil.

I appreciate to our goverent and someealth leaders its a taboo subject but  feel it should be addressed.

    There is a lot of information on the internet about the use of canabis oil  however some of it may  be misleading. There is currently a lot of ongoing research into Cannabinoids (the active consituents within cannabis). One of the CRUK Science blog posts earlier this year provided an excellent summary and you may find it a useful read. You can find it here   and  you may also be interested in the American Cancer Society' section on Marijuana and cancer.  

    Best wishes
