I was approved for medical marijuana for some back problems, but read where some feel it helps with COPD. I am on low THC with CBD, reports indicate can be very good as anti inflammatory, my goal is not to get”high” but let other properties of chemicals work. Just started three days ago,and hope it is not like a placebo but i think I find a difference already, have not had to use nebulizer last few days, was using 3 times a day, and cough is not as bad.
Will give it some time to see if it is for real.

I thought from previous post it is the liquid form that helps copd? I know a friend in pulmonary rehab who got copd from smoking marijuana all these years, never smoked regular cigarettes. I can smell it on her now and then and it seems she coughs more on those days. I shudder at the thought of inhaling more smoke into my lungs! But if it were to help then I would so let us know!

Sounds promising. Too bad it's not available to more of us to try. Who dispenses this and where is it available?

It is state by state and not all states include COPD.

In florida have to see a doctor approved to prescribe medical marijuana, cost $199.00 here, then make application to the state, $75.00, about 3 weeks later get a number to use at approved dispensary,
Not approved for copd, but was approved because of some chronic back pain.
There is dispensary about 5 miles away for me, otherwise order online and pay ispensary to deliver, usually extra $25 fee.

I have a couple friends who take the cannabis oil where the THC has been removed for arthritis and joint pain; they swear by it. Heck, I'm game for anything that will cut the mucus or help me breath better. Keep us posted.

"Alcohol"- because no great story ever started with someone eating a salad!

Hi Paul, It has been a little while since you started using the cannabis oil and I was wondering if you still feel an improvement in your COPD symptoms? How about the pain, has it helped? Thank you, Debra

Had a family emergency and just started using it again, I believe it helps, it really makes a difference with sleeping, sleep much better , also a little help with breathing since it has anti inflammatory properties.
If legal where you are, why not, found no side effects.

My experience with pot is that it turns on my attention and affinity to music so I might play harmonica or sing and find I breathe easier and deeper. I quit smoking it and instead bake it in cookies. Edibles last longer and stronger than smoking. My state doesn't allow it yet - medical or recreational.
