Re: Time, cancer, and family: try CBD
Are you suggesting this as a quality of life thing? ...

Not just that, but possible cure or at least a minimizing of symptoms.

I'm in remission for 5 years now, and I do think a large part of that is using cannabis during and after my last chemo to alleviate the bad side effects.

The CBD oil is the non-psychogenic part of cannabis that has benefits for pain relief as well as scientifically documented tumor shrinkage.

Enjoy

Re: Time, cancer, and family: try CBD
I know someone who uses CDB oil to manage stomach ills due to the side effects of their epilepsy medication. She has to stay away from the 'other stuff' because she is job hunting. It does control her nausesa, and provide some relief for her ptsd.

Re: Time, cancer, and family: try CBD
Not much was said on the video about its effect on the cancer itself, just one comment I think. Cannabis is supposed to have other benefits though, including stopping seizures, but I happen to know someone who was having seizures it didn't help. Not that it has to help everyone to be of benefit to some, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of evidence for any of the claims. I'm convinced that some juices, particularly carrot juice, actually kills cancer, some kinds of cancer in some people at least, from the anecdotal evidence, but there doesn't even seem to be that much for cannabis' effect on cancer.

Edited by Faith, : No reason given.

I did a google -- lots of articles about the scientific results of studies on its effect

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cannabis+shrinks+tu...

The oil is a juice from the cannabis plant ...

Enjoy

Re: Time, cancer, and family: try CBD
Could you just sum up the research? Thanks.

I've been reading around in the website Chris Beat Cancer which is all about natural/nutritional treatments. One of his interviews is with the mother of a child diagnosed with brain tumors at age three who started this kind of therapy with him at the point he was sent home to die -- he's six at the time of the interview, still alive, cancer-free, but not fully well -- and she mentions that part of the treatment is the oil you are talking about, but not for the cancer itself, for the seizures and the pain.

I just did a quick scan of the last page or so. Did THC come up?
There has been an outlawing of medical benefits research in the USA for a very long time. It is classified as a schedule 1 or 2 drug or something.

But a university in Spain has been doing research for many decades. It is called Comp.... University or something. Starts with a C and is spelling like COMP in the beginning.

I had a newspaper print out from the 1990s that showed something like 30% higher tumor - and more than 1 type of cancer -reduction compared to non THC users.

I need to google and try to find the university name.

edit
This might be it

www.google.com
university spain thc cancer Complutense

In Loving Memory Of An Eternal Cancer Survivor
Perdition, please feel free to lurk and visit us occasionally. Your Mother was very special here at EvC...I have recently been reading posts she made in 2003, before I was even here! She is an eternal cancer survivor in my mind. No matter whether one is a believer or a non-believer, we can all agree that her loving memory, her warm smile, and her optimism will live on eternally through her sons, daughters, and granddaughters.

Our prayers and warm thoughts are with you and your family as well as extended family.
