I do. One of my friends used it when she was going through chemo for breast cancer (at the advice of her doctor) and she really believes it helped her through the worst of it. She suffered horribly beforehand and it just seemed to take away the aches and pains. There were stages before where she couldn't even stand up in the shower she was in so much agony.
I do think it would need to be closely monitored and a lot of thought would have to go into how it's handed out. It would also have to be a super clean/pure form that wasn't cut with anything. Which of course in this situation I'm sure it would be.

I was thinking of doing a thread with this exact question.
Yes Yes Yes.
I assume it would be very tightly controlled. So not just pop into the doctor because you have a headache, more like serious cannot function at even 5% type pain.

I do. It's not as though you will be able to find it in the paracetamol section of a chemist!

Medicinally - yes. It seems to me to be an efficient way of bringing relief of an array of symptoms to people with serious illness, undergoing chemo etc. But, it needs to be well regulated and prescribed to people with their medical history taken into consideration.

Yes. There is a lot of proof to show just how effective it is for chronic pain and other problems. It's great for cancer patients because it helps with nausea and appetite too. It is something my DH, who suffers from chronic pain, has done a lot of research on.

As I said in the other post, yes and I do use it for pan relief on doctors advice.

Of course. There are proven benefits and it's a naturally occurring plant. Has to be better than chemical pharmaceuticals that's for sure!
