In the interim, perhaps find an LP where you can get the highest concentration of CBD. 26% should last one longer than say....19-20%. There is a form/documentation to complete to have it increased. I do not know first-hand what is required to justify the increase.

Thanks Big Rex and Poprat appreciated. These guys are soulless, my Dr has been weaning me off all my pharmaceuticals 11 of 14 so far I no longer take but instead use CBD. The Vancouver VAC OSI is where my Dr is from, there Dr recommended that I go from 3 - 5 grams per day because of my CBD use. Now I must get him more involved and put together an reveal request which I asked my CM about the day as well. Is is soldiering to begin hating our leaders so much that is hard to move forward at times.

hey buds there is a " exceptional approval process " don't know a lot about it but some have had success with it . sounds like your OSI doc may be helpful . not sure where to get the application but you can ask your CM for one they should be able to find it .

Unfortunately, VAC changed their rules last year, reducing the maximum coverage from 10 grams/day, down to 3. They say it was a cost savings measure, because so many veterans were starting to use it, but it was more about saving face, because the overall costs probably dropped. It might have also been big pharma putting pressure on the politicians, because if more and more Veterans are using MJ, they aren't using the myriad of other medications, like pain killers, anti depressants and anti anxiety drugs, that the pharmaceutical companies push.

It would be bad enough just for that, but when it's being done at the same time that MJ is being legalized for recreational use, it just seems idiotic. The GoC is making it easier to use just to get high, at the same time that they are making it harder for Veterans to use it just to have some sort of life.

Recently VAC denied my Drs prescription renewal of 5 grams/to only 3 grams. Anyone able to give advice on review, appeals etc. PS. The Dr was a shrink from the Vancouver OSI clinic. He has been gradually taking me a ton of meds to the point where it takes up to 5 grams/day for me to get through a day. Thanks.
