Treatment for kids.

A fellow worker of mine, her 7 year old daughter has leukemia and is having a hard go of things, infections, loss of weight (50lbs) constant vomiting and a few other things, has anybody ever heard of MJ treatment for a minor, Possible edibles?

Any first hand accounts?

Thanks

(abst - 2010) http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/20141389 Glycerin tinctures would be the way to go with a child. Glycerin is sweet and doesn't burn like alcohol tinctures. The cool thing is that tinctures can be absorbed through the lining of the mouth (under the tongue especially). This could be very helpful during a nausea attack. Taken sublingually (under the tongue), tinctures work faster than edibles, but slower than vaping. Many tinctures are flavored with mint, which makes it even easier to give to a child. laserGP.gif In California, tinctures are available in dispensaries. If you do not have dispensaries, the recipe is simple! Go to the health food store and buy some food grade glycerin. Grind your cannabis as fine as possible and mix as much as you can afford into some glycerin. It should be kept in a brown bottle, or a dark place. Shake it daily. After a minimum of 3 weeks, it is ready to use after straining the used-up cannabis out. (I'd use a dampened, close woven cloth like a pillow case) Glycerin is thick so it will take hours to all get strained out- kinda depends on the temperature, thickness of the glycerin, etc. A single dropper-full is usually enough with the commercial tinctures. I was talking with a Dutch nurse who made cannabis tinctures for sale. She aged hers for 2 months, used only bud, and an ounce sold for $40. I have seen other tinctures for $20.

I know someone very close, who is under 18. in highschool. He has a legal papers(card). He has asthma and severe allergies. And vaporizes. He also runs cross country, does mixed martial arts, and got all A's in all his classes (but latin, B+). This year he is in 3 honors classes. So yes, just make sure no one knows, at school or anything. A little girl was raided of her meds, a chronically ill girl too.
