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.

    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.

    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)

    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.
    Thanks,

    There are many forms of FECO that do not require inhaling or vaping. However, in PA I do not believe COPD is one of the qualifying conditions.
