    There are strains of Cannabis (I’ve read) that produce little or no THC

    Indeed there are. There are many many different strains and hybrids with varying levels of THC and/or CBD depending on what the user desires.

    I’ll update this, as it was a few months ago now I bought a bottle for my knackered wrist.

    I went for a recommended make (Charlottes Web) – took it religiously for a month. Didn’t make any difference at all for me. Didn’t bother buying another bottle.

    I’ve not managed to get my arse in gear and get any yet either. Any my wrist still hurts! I’ve not been back to muay thai for a couple of months. Tried a few sessions on the bag at home and it’s still giving me $hit. Even got work to supply a mouse pad with a padded bit for my wrist which helps a little.

    Seems to be the inch or so on the outside of my left wrist just above my watch bracelet (and no, it’s not too tight!). Will get back to the docs and see what she suggests. Wonder if it’s carpal tunnel or something arthritic based?

    Give Lloyds Pharmacy a whirl online, they’re selling 5% stuff, 2 weeks supply for £15 with the discount code, it would suspect 2 weeks of that would be enough to give an idea of it’s going to work for you or not. They have a click and collect service and they seem to be everywhere. It’s all grown in Ireland and made “by pressing the whole plant” so, no dodgy powder stirred into whatever.

    My Mrs is a Specialist Nurse, I asked her to read through a recent article on Pinkbike about CBD and she was quite positive about me trying it, adversely she’s very cautious of ‘non steroidal non-inflammatory drugs’ like ibuprofen, the fact I even know what they are gives a good indication about how much she moans about me taking them, my GP on the other-hands is more than happy to throw all manner of them at me.

    Did anyone watch the Countryfile about a month ago? Was am interesting watch, the British Sugar factory is not too far from me, they used to use the waste heat from sugar production to grow tomatoes, but no use it to grow medicinal cannabis products. Was an interesting watch, they had thousands of plants growing a a time, so there is clearly a regulated supply there:

    If anyone was sold by my description of the Lovecbd oil on the previous page, they’re welcome to my hardly touched bottle of the ashtray flavoured muck. 2 Quid in my paypal to cover postage and it’s yours.

    Have you ever considered a job in sales 😉

    Thanks for the offer, but, trying to get my head around the way this stuff is sold, the LoveCBD stuff is 1.5% (just under actually) CBD and 98.5% snake oil (ashtray flavoured snake oil it seems).

    I’ve become fairly cynical of it, not because I don’t think CBD oil could be very helpful for some ailments and some people, but because it seems needlessly expensive, so sellers are trying to provide products at prices most consumers will take a stab at, but only offer tiny doses, I know we blame marketing for a lot of things in the MTB world (usually for good reason) but they rarely help either.

    I’m going to give my oil a go, tbh if it makes a big difference, I’ve got a greenhouse and have found a supplier who’ll ship low-thc, high-cbd seeds to the UK ha ha*

    (* I won’t do that)
