Interesting it has an expiry date..
Posted from the OZ Stoners mobile app
It won't matter, it'll all be gone before then PMSL
When medicines are manufactured, by law they have to be given an expiry date.
This is the date after which they are not expected to be as effective as they should.
Medicines lose their effectiveness over time because the chemicals in medicines can be broken down to inactive products by the effects of heat, light or oxygen.
They can also become dangerous due to a change in their chemical composition.
At worst, taking old medicines can be fatal if they’re for the treatment of serious conditions.Expiry dates can vary widely between different medicines and forms of medicine. For example dry tablets are likely to have a later expiry date than liquids.

Today was the 3rd doctor's review. Another $80
'Scientific analyses' going well.
GVM working much better for management of pain than the oil.
The oil can take hours to take full effect, but I can't say that at 2pm I'm going to be in agony. I need that instant effect that a vape or a cone gives. Even after building up a 'therapeutic dose' of the oil and maintaining it for 2 months I have seen a benefit in the reduction of opiates, but the headaches are still needing that single dose opiate.
The dr has advised me that there is now an Australian oil supplier available with a 25mg/ml THC and 25mg/ml CBD mix. BUT at $560 which is almost double the cost, so much for the idea that Oz suppliers would help to reduce the cost.
He also advised me that there is a 20:5 oil available from Canada at $330 (available online for $86 Canadian) so obviously there's a MASSIVE mark up.
So presently we'll maintain the Bedrocan script and see how things progress.

Hi everyone - I'm going to also post this in the politics and activism subforum, but thought I'd also add it in here - it's an invitation to make a public submission to a federal inquiry into accessing medicinal cannabis. My colleague Kate Seear wrote the below email letting me know about it, which I'm sharing with you all here, as many of you may have experiences you want to share with the committee:
As you might have heard the Commonwealth Senate is holding an inquiry, just announced, into access to medicinal cannabis. This is a growing and very important issue, in my view. I'm writing to bring it to your attention, because I believe you may work on issues that are relevant or related, to encourage you to tell others who might be interested in these issues and encourage you or your organisations to make a submission if you can. The terms of reference are here:
Submissions are due by 17th January 2020.
By way of background and for any who are not familiar, in recent years, cannabis has begun to be legalised for medicinal purposes across Australia. This change has come about in part because of emerging evidence detailing the benefits of medicinal cannabis for certain medical conditions. It may be of benefit for people living with conditions (such as arthritis and intractable seizures), ease the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and it may even shrink cancerous tumours. Research is being done on these issues around the world, including at the Lambert Initiative (LI) at Sydney University. The LI was established by a wealthy family a few years ago, after their granddaughter was diagnosed with a serious medical condition (Dravert syndrome) that led to frequent, catastrophic, life threatening seizures. The Lamberts' son gave the granddaughter medicinal cannabis and the effects were seemingly miraculous, but the son was prosecuted. Evidently the grandparents felt this was a grave injustice, and this sparked their transformational donation. The LI seeks to establish proof of the benefits of medicinal cannabis so that it might become more readily available across Australia.
Medicinal cannabis is available in Victoria, but subject to a strict access scheme. Doctors can prescribe it, but under certain conditions. Importantly, however, the cost of medication is seemingly prohibitive for all but a few members of the community, meaning that although it is technically accessible it is practically not. This has resulted in some people deciding to cultivate their own medicinal cannabis, or to supply it to others on ‘compassionate’ grounds. Several individuals have been prosecuted for this, including parents, friends, carers and doctors. Recent high profile cases including the prosecution and sentencing of South Australian woman Jenny Hallam in November 2019 and the prosecution of Dr Andrew Katelaris in NSW in 2018. Katelaris represented himself and was acquitted.
There are some cases I am aware of with individuals with cancer (including late stage) also being prosecuted.
On 14 November 2019, the Commonwealth Senate agreed to hold an urgent inquiry into access to medicinal cannabis in Australia, seemingly recognising that access issues were associated with some people breaking the law.
If you are interested, I hope you might consider making a submission.
