    No I know, that's not what I was trying to say. I meant that just because something is a legal prescribed drug doesn't mean it is automatically harmless.

    She was saying that weed is a drug & therefore harmful, and that stronger painkillers should be taken instead, implying they are not harmful.
    I see, sorry.

    Nabilone (but I only know that because I read the ****ing thread!).
    No, dronabinol (brand name Marinol).

    But it isn't as effective as smoking weed.

    To the OP, smoke it in a vaporizer for all the benefits and none of the negatives

    That's not surprising since it's only one of the sixty or so cannabinoids that you find in 'weed'. Nabilone, the synthetic cannabinoid, is resembles cannabis far better.

    BNF says Nabilone- the only one that's licensed. It isn't as effective as weed because it isn't weed, its a chemically derived derivative similar in structure to cannabis
