Is anyone using FECO as a treatment?

Has anyone heard of or is using FECO (full extract cannabis oil) for COPD? I've been reading about it.

  1. At the moment I am. Trying FECO, my son bought me the oil after reading about the benefits to help COPD.
    I was on oxygen most of the time, couldn’t walk a few steps without gasping for air. Tonight I went out for dinner without taking my oxygen into the restaurant, a first for me in almost 2 years, also forgot to take along my fast acting inhaler that alone seems like a miracle. I have been using the oil under my tongue morning & night, I take half a dropper of the oil & have been doing this for two weeks. Maybe it’s too early to tell yet if this really works but it’s certainly the best relief that I have had in years, I will keep you all posted.

    1. Hi limeyp - Thank you for letting us know how FECO is working for you. I hope you continue to have as much success as you are now. It's really great that you're getting some relief.

  2. Ok, I just began the FECO treatment. I live in Colorado, am 68 years and was first diagnosed with COPD in 2009. Unfortunately COPD is not currently listed as a qualifying ailment to qualify to obtain a Medical Marijuana Registery Card. Lucky for me (I guess), I also have prior medical conditions (Scoliosis being one of them), resulting in continuing pain and pinched nerves in my neck and lower back areas and at times in my legs. This condition allowed me to obtain my card and purchase the required strength and quantity of medicine to possibly assist with my current COPD as well. As they suggest at least 2 months of treatment, I am anxiously awaiting the results.

    1. HI CloudDancer - Thank you for giving us that information. I'll be very interested to hear if you feel it works. Please keep us posted!

    2. Hi again, CloudDancer and thanks for your post. I see you were able to re-post your inquiry here in the question and answer section. Have you had a chance to look at our COPD Facebook page as well? Wishing you the best, Leon (site moderator)

  3. Yes. After a year of Dr and Hospital visits following exacerbations, I took the minimum dose of feco in a capsule once per day for three months. I have had no exacerbations since (1 year)

    1. Hi Cousincas and thanks for letting us know this works for you. We appreciate your comment. Leon (site moderator)

  4. Hi hdkrane and thanks for your post. Would you mind clarifying your question? What particular 'forms' of FECO are you speaking about? Also, when you address COPD as not being a 'qualifying' condition, qualified by what?, by whom? Perhaps others in the community have a better understanding of your question.
