The device reportedly gives users all the health benefits of cannabis without getting you high. The first legal cannnabis vaporiser went on sale earlier this year and already it is changing lives, according to its customers. The MediPen's creators say their device contains a very respectable dose of Cannabidiol, an active ingredient in the cannabis plant with a vast array of positive benefits and health uses.
CBD does not produce any of the psychoactive effects associated with traditional cannabis use, such as paranoia or anxiety. A user, Amy Yapp, who suffers from fibromyalgia a condition which causes muscular pain, aches and tenderness has reviewed the MediPen.
Ms Yapp said that while she still had uncomfortable twinges, her pain was a lot less intense than usual. In a later video, she added: It's changed my life". The pen, which contains coconut oil imbued with 20 per cent CBD, is grown in the Netherlands in a way which eliminates the tetrahydrocannabinol THC , the one that gets you high.
Steve Mason and his partner have been using the MediPen for about a month, he to help him quit smoking and her for her multiple sclerosis, insomnia and painful legs and feet.
Caroline Julia Edwards also gave the product a five star review. She said she was initially sceptical but the product had helped her calm down after panic attacks and sleep properly. But if you are fed up of taking painkillers or meds for anxiety, this is a brilliant alternative.

Carl O'Keeffe , who suffers from Aspergers, and a crippling headache following a head injury said the pen has really changed his life. I've been using the pen for a couple of months now and I couldn't be happier, stress is a thing of the past and thinking is clearer less prone to jump and say things I don't mean. Users claim it has helped their chronic pain file picture Image: Video Loading Video Unavailable.
