im off to the docs tomorrow @ 09.10am so wish me luck as im armed with the threat ill sue em for being negligent. i know i fit the criteria so lets just hope i don’t have to fight to hard to get it.
Good luck. GPs cannot prescribe but pain consultants can (and if they won’t because local NHS Trust won’t fund, then take legal action).
In theory, the legal action will cost them more in lawyers than just writing out the prescription form.
It is not easy to get the stuff, but it should be available to those with genuine need. So keep on at your GP to get you to a pain clinic and take it from there.March 4, 2013 at 2:59 am #785708
Hello Pat is there a copy of this letter Hugo recieved? And would that mean i’d get my stash back with self medicating. If what i have seen writen is true maybe i’ll be able to start providing for others with medical conditions too.March 4, 2013 at 5:23 pm #785690
Will ask him. Might have to blank the address on it but I don’t know if he’s happy about it being posted. Probably, say 60/40 can do.March 6, 2013 at 5:43 pm #785707
awww cheers Pat realie thank you …. i pick up my prescription tomorrow morning, cant believe it! my GP called the Nero and did his magic he got a bit of a slap on the wrists for it but he said its well worth knowing he can get people like me the right meds instead of just handing out diazipam and coadine …. (folk who like to get high on those drugs obv haven’t had serious pain to contend with becose taking it all the time causes consipation and it don’t have the same high affect when they are in) any ways Pat you are a true diamond you helped me so so much thank you! big hugs xMarch 7, 2013 at 6:29 pm #785691
You are MOST WELCOME. I am glad that somebody with a genuine health problem is getting the best available care, without physical withdrawal symptons.
Hope you get on very well with it.March 7, 2013 at 10:31 pm #785705

I’m glad to hear this. My best mates mum died of MS and apparently cannabis really helped her too, so i’m glad you’re getting the right medicine for you.March 27, 2013 at 8:23 am #785709

Thanks Pat much appreciated It was mainly so i have some case law to take with me to the police station when i have to re-attend. Already been put back by a month though approaching fast.
I’m being refered to the pain clinique though would prefer to grow and process my own tbh. Figured it would help if i can get the same prescribed through the NHS as what police are trying to criminalise me over. The madness in place must soon come to an end the self appointed powers that be are insaine. Love and light sudamaApril 5, 2013 at 7:22 pm #785692
OK, he’s having a look through the thread. Initial reaction was “these kids really aren’t worth bothering with”.
Hopefully he’ll get up to the more adult bits. 🙂
If not, maybe he’ll just PM you Sudama.December 28, 2014 at 9:04 am #785606

It’s impossible to die from Mushrooms as well, i don’t recommend anyone to dose it all the time.
you ever seen cannabis addicts? paranoid lazy wrecks who are unable to sleep without their holy weed sacrament. It’s not all fun and games and some people think it is.
Are a a christian pat?
Complete shit. I’ve smoked it daily for the past 10 years to deal with my epilepsy seizures, some would class me an addict then by some standards, all paranoid and lazy as you claim?? FAR FROM IT!! I work full time in a physically demanding job, I’m also at college studying my arse off to become a holistic therapist, as well as setting up my own business AND taking care of a family. Cannabis helps me live my life without seizures fuckin it up or epilepsy meds making it worse.
EDUCATE yourself on the vast and varied benefits of medicinal marijuana before you write all smokers off as lazy stoners and make yourself look a complete idiot..May 30, 2015 at 12:31 am #785710
I am currently 11 days away from hopefully hopefully being given my first prescription of Sativex.
I’s taken me eight years to get to this point, the NHS have put me through some hellish trials on some nightmarish substance – never again.
You are right, you have to exhaust their medicine cabinet then go to a pain clinic. Go through tests, horrible tests, then research.
DO ALOT OF RESEARCH INTO WHY CANNABIS WORKS FOR YOU – print it off and take it with you to see the specialist at the pain clinic.
START A PETITION – showing the doctor or professor that you have a few thousand people supporting your need for the oil will greatly increase your chances.
Again, research. Blow them away with knowledge. It’s all easily accessible on GW Pharma’s site;
Research Papers – GWPharma – Research Papers
Publications – GWPharma – Publications
Patents – GW PHARMA LIMITED – Patent applications
Hope this helps.
You’re also right about growing your own at home – if you can prove in writing that you are applying for Sativex with your doctors and that Cannabis is the SAFEST and MOST EFFECTIVE medicine for you personally then you are safe – keep it under four plants.
Good luck and godspeed xDecember 1, 2015 at 11:56 am #785607
As I have cancer in my brain and few other places and have a broken vertebra would I be able to geto r start the process of getting cannabis legalized for my self ?? How would I go about this as I smoke it every day for my pain would I be able to grow a couple of plants two or three max and would this be ok by the law or not. Thanks if you could get back to meFebruary 10, 2017 at 12:37 pm #785608

What do you think gets you high? Some green plant matter? No THC gets you high, look above ‘CHEMICAL NAME’. Some green plant isn’t psychoactive.
That means that Psilocin is not a drug or chemical cos it grows naturally in Fungi (mushrooms). If you believe the whole ‘weed isn’t a drug thing’ then that’s your own ignorance.
I can post in any thread i like and i have a lot of experience in weed use so i wouldn’t mind sharing it. it seems like you aren’t familiar with forums and are getting too upset here, come on you’re 43 don’t take it to heart i think your plan is stupid and you don’t… not a big deal don’t cry.
This guys comes straight out of a comic book ??? #fuckpharmaOctober 27, 2018 at 12:16 am #1259733
