Cannabinoids and cancer

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I am in desperate need of advice, my dad has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer, that has spread to his bones and I am looking into buying cannabinoids to reduce pain and help stop the cancer progressing. I have been recommended a couple of suppliers that I will be having conversations with and am getting a list of questions together, but want to cover off as much as possible.

So I am hoping you could give some suggestions of questions I needs to ask? I have spent what feels like an enternity on the net looking at info and will ask things like THC content/strain/sativa/indica etc, but I am completely new to this and not sure if there are obvious questions I should be asking or things I should consider?

I am grateful of any guidance you can give!!! Feeling a bit out of my comfort zone over here!!!

You'd be wanting a high THC oil. preferably from organic weed grown with no pesticides. Your best bet would be to grow your own but I realise time is an issue. It would take three months to produce a crop minimum. Make sure it's been made properly and all the alcohol has been cooked and purged. Are your 'suppliers' offering ready made oil or the bud to make it from?

In my experience.....high THC content (bud/HBO/Full extract) helped me deal with the rigours of chemotherapy and acted as an incredibly useful tool to help me get over my cancer.

It would help me eat, drink and stop feeling so sick in the days after treatment.  Leaving me free to try to recover.

It recovered my digestion (which would just stop working after chemotherapy with no medicine).

 

I wouldn't like to comment on actual ratios (THC/CBD) for lung cancer as I would be way way out of my depth.....

 

I would say (IMO) that I believe the balance of cannabinoids is the key and you need all them in all their beautiful glory.

 

I spend time discussing a very different cancer with our American friends and their approach to treatment.......they will be issued and take all three (10/90) (90/10) (50/50) (THC/CBD) to see what works the best.

 

Rick Simpson does some great videos for oil beginners and explains dosages very well (IMO)

hi i am sorry to hear this sad news but the only advice i can offer is please be careful as sadly there are many scammers out there esp online selling fake or dangerous poorly made oil,idk what area you are in but have a look on facebook for a local cannabis club or co operative most areas have one now and often they are more reliable for medicinal oil,or have a think maybe someone you know is a smoker or grower and folk are often willing to help if your brave enough to ask,i treated my wifes cancer using only waste from a local cashcroppers harvest the stuff they dump or burn most often but it makes perfectly good oil if correctly made,sadly we cannot help each other without getting in trouble a sad state of things imo,best of luck in your search,peace

Had bad news yesterday from mum who told me she has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Linfoma. I want to make her some oil as I have lots of weed from this years growing but it's all Auto at the moment- is this OK? I have four large 'proper' plants but they wont be harvested till around November. I have silly questions like how much should she take and when. Someone told me about the size of a small pea and bedtime makes sense to me. To take it should she put it on her finger and rum it into her gum? Any advice on this will be great as she starts chemo in a couple of weeks.

This sounds like your mother has a similar cancer to me....Is it NHL or hodgkins ?

I am in remission and took oil throughout my chemo and rein-fusion....Coming up 12 months now and I was stage 4B

 

I can help with my experience.....If she is having BEAM-R she will need all the help she can get...I am now disabled from having the treatment.(Not the cancer)

 

Oral Syringe 1ml

 

This is the syringe to use......Search google for '1ml feeding syringe' they sell them in many places and are like 20p each :yep:

Your Mum will be taking one of these a day minimum when up and running and used to the medicine

 

I have a few delivery methods.....My personal favourite is a bowl of hot porridge (the lipids in milk help cannabinoid absorption)

Or a hot cup of Tea.....(Over 50 celsius for both to make sure the cannabinoids are all activated upon ingestion :yep: - I try to never take the oil over 50 celsius when making it)

 

Also....if your crop is very high THC may I suggest the addition of a good CBD oil to counter the stoned affects and make the medicine more potent.

 

RSO makes better medicine IMO but you can use shatter/BHO.....Just like above....use CBD oil to balance

 

Good luck to a fellow warrior.....Don't let the survival rates scare you.....there for people who refuse to acknowledge  cannabis as a medicine unfortunately.

 

Message me or contact me here for any further information.....If your mother needs someone who has been through it to discuss things with I am generally always about 

 

Much love

 

 

Ken

Yes, I was worried about that. Also worried about how long I can keep her in oil as it takes 10g to make 1 right? Harvest of the main plants wont be done till November so won't know what I'm rocking with till then anyway. I have some auto so will make some with that for now. Yes please PM me the link to get better CBD oil than they have in H&B. cheers
