I came upon this review from Zec at Sat on My Butt blog and just knew that I had to share it with you – particularly those in the UK chronic illness community. You might remember that I reviewed a CBD oil last year and I have been interested in trying something but was unsure what might be comparable (the oil that I reviewed was sent from the States)….this could be it! Unfortunately we are currently funding our old dog’s
drug habit pain medication, and of course the family will vote that he comes before mum!! But this has been added to my list for Santa!
For the past three weeks I have been using the Medipen.
Medipen aren’t allowed to make any medical claims about their product, but fortunately. nothing stops me from doing that!
So what is a Medipen?
A Medipen is a Cannabinoid delivery device that vaporises the Cannabinoids that are in coconut oil, I am and have always been a non smoker and I have no problem using the Medipen.
The vapour is very smooth and doesn’t make you cough and splutter.
The cartridges contain 1ml of Cannabinoids suspended in a pharmaceutical grade Coconut oil.
What are Cannabinoids?
The Cannabis plant is made up from 114 different compounds, the THC is the compound that gives the psychoactive or high sensation people get when smoking cannabis.
The Medipen cartridges contain CBD, CBDV & CBG which do not give those sensations but they have been proven to help people with a wide ranges of health conditions.
Inside our bodies we have cannabinoid receptors, they are part of the endocannabinoid system.
It is now believed that originally humans would have gathered wild growing cannabis to use as food and our bodies use it to help combat many ills and conditions.
Cannabis has now been bred to contain more and more THC to give people a high and that has led to Cannabis getting a bad reputation and becoming illegal.
I received the Medipen starter kit that comes in a tin and contains The base of the pen that contains the battery and the brains and also a rubber tip on the end that works with touch screen devices.
It also contains a USB charger and a Medipen cartridge containing the Cannabinoids.
It really is foolproof, you screw on the cartridge, place the tip in your mouth and suck and that’s it,no on or off button or settings, it is ready to go at any time.
