Thank you Colleen for the links to the articles. Actually, it's more trial and error, I think. Also depending on your state it might not be available. I have had 4 lung cancers. Curious- with all the state regulations and time required to get approved what do folks think about the cbd oils as an immediate option? Is it a scam like weight loss herbs? Or have folks seen results? We are lucky here in Colorado. Marijuana is legal both medically and recreationally. Our doctors recommended it and gave my husband the medical marijuana card but we can also supplement as need be with recreational.
My husband has a Stage 4 cancer of 'unknown primary' after 10 months of testing and appointments …. Since we are doing no other treatment, we are cautiously optimistic that the marijuana is contributing to the decline in cancer activity. Our doctors are on board. There is an interesting article you can Google from the National Institutes of Health about the effect of CBD and THC for a number of medical concerns……there isn't much research yet because of the legal status but it being used for pain, inflammation and can in some way 'bind' to cancer cells they believe and kill the cells without harming healthy cells.
I am, as of tomorrow, 3 years cancer free from my breast cancer diagnosis and I too have started to use CBD only as a 'preventative'. I have noticed no ill effects. I use a small amount vaping before bed and it does relax me somewhat and I sleep well ha ha.
The CBD doesn't create the brain effects of THC but it seems to relax me and reduce some of my old lady pains that might otherwise keep me awake. My husband has had no negative effects either……marijuana has been used for years and there don't seem to be long term effects for adults that are documented, so I figure…….. CBD oil is great for lowering anxiety, helping with seizures, etc. You would have to look up the list on google. It is not a scam at all.
I think that any claims that cannibis can cure cancer is a public perception and not a scientific one. Contrary to what most people believe, medical uses of cannabis have been widely studied. A review by the National Academy of Science looked at over 10, studies. They found evidence for some applications of cannabis, including managing chronic pain and spasms associated with multiple sclerosis. There was also good evidence that tetrahydrocannabinol THC , the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, can reduce the nausea caused by chemotherapy.
Indeed, a synthetic form of THC, called dronabinol, has been prescribed for just this use for decades. But, crucially, there is zero evidence that cannabis has any curative or even helpful impact on cancer, despite enthusiastic claims to the contrary.
There are several articles and studies early stage and in progress on the National Institutes of Health website Search, National Institutes of Health — CBD and THC that outline research into the uses and possible effectiveness of the marijuana plant compounds for the use in cancer.
It's a tough read very 'medical, ha ha but there seems to be some promise there. CBD oil is not another treatment option. It has not been shown to decrease cancer cells. What it is, is a useful agent in helping with relaxing, nausea, some pain. I believe that using the terms cures or treatments, remedy or antidote are words that should never be used when talking about THC or CBD oil. Too many people will believe it and it gives a false hope of surviving.
Also some people can have adverse side effects that don't ever seem to be talked about. Colleen has mentioned that there is a great need for more scientific research. I agree, for sure. I also think than when adding a mind altering chemical when you are already taking others needs to be done in a very cautious way.
I hope I was not misunderstood. However, the articles I referenced and the information we received from not one but three oncology groups in relation to my husband's cancer treatment were to use it if tolerable for him which it is as an adjunct to his medical care. Other uses have been confirmed as well now. The problem with CBD and THC is that with it's legal status little research has been possible and it frustrates some doctors because they see the early research and wish they had more concrete information.
I am not a 'snake oil salesman' and I hope I have presented my thoughts carefully. I think it should be noted that so many conventional cancer treatments used today can have serious side effects and limited efficacy as well and alternatives such as CBD and THC shouldn't be pushed aside without consideration.
I am 3 years cancer free 5 years from my initial diagnosis of breast cancer. I just now added it to my healthy lifestyle choices AND medical treatment, which included a bi lateral mastectomy.
I am not suggesting that people look to a miracle drug for cure but instead evaluate all their options in treating their cancer because to be honest…………medical science is a practice and it's constantly evolving. I meant no harm or disrespect but ignoring alternative options is not wise either.
Cindy- I mentioned all these things because I wanted to make the point, not because of anything that you wrote.
I just spurred me to write! And I am sorry that I gave the wrong impression myself. I am so afraid of wrong terms and people believing what their minds want them too. Evaluating all options is key to getting the right treatments, but as you write, they often fail or have serious side effects and are not adequate and additional options need to be considered. You certainly did not show any disrespect, perhaps I should have asked questions instead of diving right in.
Liked by Colleen Young, Connect Director , cindylb. Merry……perhaps I over reacted a bit myself and I apologize. Thanks for your reply I only mentioned I tried it It's just so nice to have a discussion about it and not dismissing people who want to try something when they have a terminal diagnosis I have a lot of other issues with health So hope yo don't mind me explaining my reply to you I have great respect for you wonderfull nurses..
I thank you for the detailed reply and i agree in part. Also we have placed trust time and again with nhs staff only to be mistreated, lied to and let down. How for example is shouting at a vulnerable family in crisis going to help anyone? Thank you for the offer of help though.
Hi Chrissie I appreciate your reply to my post. I am grateful for all views in fact. I did print out the first few pages from the health rack website showing it is legal as a health food supplement but she was adamant it was illegal and started her shouting rant. I should have manned up last time. This week hopefully will be different. I will have a look in the CR research engine but I have done a lot of poking around the internet or I would not have started his nibs on CBD in the first place.
Been on it about 2 weeks now. Pain not significantly better but hey its not worse as it was threatening to be. Also massive mood improvement. As its not regulated and unclear what the right doses are, I did start at the bottom end, so may be the strength or amount I am giving isn't enough. I still don't regret it though. Its had a positive effect, no bad side effects and Ive felt like I have done somthing.
Just like to mention I am a Social Scientist by trade so I seek scientific research. Nothing less will do. I will have a look at the links you have kindly provided. I would never risk giving the most precious thing in my life anything I thought would hasten him away from me. Indeed even when I made the choice of product, I discussed it with him in detail and first tried it on myself.
I am really grateful for all viewpoints and assistance. I read on here someone refused chemo in favour of canabis oil. That is a brave step. I personally would not turn my back on conventional treatments completely, but equally don't condemn that. Cancer is rife in hubbys family; one sister chose a very different path to us.
After diagnosis, she chose to give up. No food, no meds, and less than a month later we went to the funeral. I saw benefits as well as downers to her decision; yes she missed months if not a year or so with the family, very sad, but also saved herself and them a lot of suffering,worry and fear. The British Medical journal has some interesting articles meriting further attention.
Some sillier than others, but a bit more palatable. The main thing is making the effort to look. No one should be dismissed because whatever they read wasn't science based enough. It is important to listen to others' experiences. That includes listening to people on here. If someone's dad had a cancer that went away after treatemnt only with custard. My attitude isn't " not scientific, go away", it's "Really, then lets look at this right away!
This forum reaffirmed my own experience about how disconnected many carers are from the world out there. What a wealth of people there are who desperately want to 'offer support' maybe especially 'professionals', but when the chips are down, it is a very lonely path, not for everyone, but those who can't fit the 9 to 5, those living remotely, those who can't drive nor live on the hospice doorstep
