I have the old tennis elbow to on the right hand side. Starting to get arthritis in the fingers on the same hand. Will get it very bad in the lower back soon as my lower back is riddled with it from a spine problem.
After speaking with my step father (a GP in Smogney) he recons when cannabis becomes legal to prescribe for more mundane aches and pains, I should try that for the discomfort. Which did surprise me as he is a bit "square"....he does like his red wine though....
I think they are all aware of the health benefits but cant prescribe it.......Yet.
Queen Victoria ( so i am told ) use to take it for period pain.
