Ask David to send you what he takes...We have a store in the next town to me that sells cbd oil but I need to go in and talk to the consultant. Not there often and I should make an appointment but we have such bad weather and I don't like to drive and we would no doubt have a blizzard about the time I was to go.....

Thanks David, I do the oils too, tried some with indica and it really helps all my aches and pains along with the THC, it helps me sleep at night so well whereas before I was awake most of the night staring at the clock now I can get some sleep breathe and my aches and pains don't hurt as bad, I'm so thrilled that they made it legal here now I have to go to the marijuana doctor here and have him fill out my card I have to pay 250 and then off I go but problem being $250 is a lot right now especially just before all the holidays so I will wait until after and continue to go through the person I go through for now.
Hi David....I'm in Ontario so only CBD legal till next April. I went to see my respirologist Monday and he said THC is not a broncodilator...When I researched online they did say it was so who in heck knows.........Will wait till next April when it's all legal...
My Pulmonary doctor does not know the benefits of medical cannabis. He went to a different school. Even though he does not prescribe it, he doesn't mind me trying it. Actually it hurts his business because I take less of his drugs, mostly the big name inhalers.
Doctors are relying on people who use cannabis oil to tell them if they are better or worse for taking the medicine. My doctors are tickled to death that I use less oxygen when I am using Full Effects Cannabis Oil. It's not good for the oxygen suppliers. But eventually my emphysema will get worse and oxygen will be needed permanently.
I have noticed when I was moving I used less FECO and went back to using more oxygen. I felt more short of breath. Now that I have settled into my new place I will get back into a routine like I had before I moved.
It's trial and error with any medicine. First you have to try it.
What Is Pinene and What Are the Benefits of This Cannabis Terpene?
Pinene (or α-pinene) is an aromatic compound commonly found in cannabis that smells a lot like – you guessed it – a forest of pine trees. But pinene brings a lot more to a strain’s experience than just flavor. Terpenes such as pinene are fragrant oils secreted in marijuana trichomes, and while they originally developed as an adaptive protection against predators, these compounds offer us humans a variety of benefits. And, fun fact: pinene can also be found in conifer trees, orange peels, turpentine, pine needles, rosemary, dill, basil, and parsley.
Pinene’s Effects and Benefits Just as different cannabinoids have different effects, so do terpenes. These unique attributes contribute to the overall composition of a strain, adding a dimension to each one’s “personality.” Some of pinene’s known effects and benefits include:
Bronchodilator (helps improve airflow to lungs)
Helps counter short-term memory loss associated with THC
You should note that these effects are modulated by other compounds. For example, strains containing high levels of the sedating terpene myrcene may not provide the alert effects mentioned above. It’s important to consider the entire chemical composition of a strain when looking for a specific effect.
High Pinene Cannabis Strains
The presence of pinene is highly dependent on a variety of environmental factors like grow medium, flowering time, and curing processes. These strains have the genetic potential to produce high levels of pinene, but the only way to know for sure is through lab-tested product. Luckily, pinene’s distinct aroma lets you follow your nose to many other strains containing this terpene – just sniff out the pine-scented varieties or use Leafly’s filters to find strains that fight inflammation, help with asthma, and promote focus.
Thank you so much David! Most Dr won't like the fact that you're even thinking about it cuz they want you to buy their Pharmaceutical and spend your money on them and that hurts their business when you don't.
I don't know if you seen it David but if I can find it I'll pull it up about back in 1972 when the government new that cannabis cures cancer lupus pulmonary disease all kinds of things we should get that up and put it up here, I hope you can find it somewhere Barb at least to try it. take care of everybody
My Pulmonary doctor has told me years ago that there is nothing else he can do except send me for a lung transplant. All he does for me is run a ct scan and lung function test once a year to see where I am at in the disease. I respect that. He went to medical school and that is what they taught him. I am glad he doesn't mind me trying out other alternatives.
Now my Primary doctor is something else. He is a family practice doctor and has just become a certified cannabis doctor this year. I think he is looking into his future about alternative medicine. He is pleased to see all his patient doing very well on cannabis.
