cbd oil and lung cancer

We had so much support from beautiful friends offering their support which we took them up on. Our gorgeous friend Lissie Turner from The Yoga Shack in ocean shores offered up her services and she came over and started Dad on some deep breathing exercises. We would breath and chant with him around the kitchen table each day which was so beautiful. The extra oxygen and the chanting which seems to regulate his exhale was really beneficial. After each session we would see the colour come back to his face. He laughed a lot too as we would chant “MAAAAAAAAAAA” on our exhale, we must have sounded like some strange cult. We had also read that oxygen can also kick cancers butt so we fully immersed in that as a daily ritual. We looked in to hyperbaric oxygen chambers as well but unfortunately Dad was too sick at that stage to travel that far (90 mins away) and it was also really expensive.

We have also spoken to a lot of people who had tried the oils and had no success with them but after talking with them realising perhaps they hadn’t had enough. You need A LOT of THC. As I said before Dad was to have 20 drops of very very high THC (2 drops would get me feeling pretty stoned). This is too hard for some people but again we found the suppository method was the best way around this. It’s not glamorous but there are worse ways to treat cancer. So THC at night as much as you can handle just before sleep is best for most people.. Straight CBD when you wake up can also dust off the the “mull over” and fogginess the next day. . We also made our own paste with our good friends from Mullumbimby using the Rick Simpson (RSO) method. To make your own you need at least one big plant and that should get you around 90 days worth of RSO oil. If you can’t make your own I suggest getting in contact with the Nimbin Hemp Embassy via Facebook and chatting with them. I could go on and on but in a nutshell our bodies have what is called an endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a molecular system responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body, including immune response, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism, memory. Because CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, it helps to promote homeostasis in the body, reducing the sensation of pain and inhibiting inflammation. Research into the possible uses of CBD and other cannabis compounds is a growing area of study, meaning the list of potential benefits is likely to grow. But studies have found that it has a massive impact on cancer, Chrone’s disease, MS, fibromyalgia and all sorts of ailments. This is still illegal however some doctors are now prescribing CBD but only if you have exhausted all other legal avenues of treatment first. So in Dad’s case to be illegible for CBD and THC from the doctor he would have had to have had the 6 rounds of chemo and radiation before he would be considered. There is a tonne of info on the internet about CBD and THC so get googling.. Some good sources of info are

I wanted to share some information on our experience we had recently with my 84 year old Dad who was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer in April 2019. This is by no means me stating any of what we did to be a cure but more just wanting to share what we have experienced so far and how my Dad is going.

Here is some more info

This process was over about 8 weeks and was pretty scary at times. I don’t know if it was his body detoxing, the cancer spreading or even retreating but some days Dad couldn’t get off the couch. He would have nights of vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea, headaches, body aches, night sweats and then some days he was great. By the 8 week mark we were rejoicing the fact he was still with us and seemed to be getting a lot stronger. By this stage he was readying to go home and we were still a little worried about him driving home. Just before they left my Uncle called me and told me about a man name Joe Tippens who had the same cancer as Dad and was riddled it it. He had treated and cured his cancer using dog worming tablets!! Yes that’s right, dog worming tablets as well as turmeric, vitamin E and CBD Oil. So we looked in to that and thought what the hell let’s do that too. Dad was up for anything so we ordered some on the internet and started that protocol as well. The active ingredient had been found to kill cancer cells in mice. The actual ingredient is called Fenbendazole. Dad would take the tablet for 3 days then have 5 days off and did that for 8 weeks. Along with the turmeric tablets and vitamin E and the cannabis oil he was already taking. As you can tell we were pretty much ready to try anything.

So all I can say is we don’t know where his cancer is at, but he went from being at deaths door to an extremely healthy almost 85 year old man who is back to doing all the things he loves with an amazing quality of life. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped and supported us on this journey. It is one that I feel privileged to be a part of.

There is much about CBD that is still unknown. It has largely gone unstudied because, until 2018, it was considered a schedule I drug by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). A schedule I drug is a drug that has been declared illegal by the DEA because of safety concerns over its potential for abuse and because there is no accepted medical use for it. Then, in September 2018, the DEA updated CBD’s status to become a schedule V drug. Schedule V drugs have a lower potential for abuse and are deemed to have some medical use.

There are 2 synthetic cannabis medications, nabilone (Cesamet) and dronabinol (Marinol or Syndros), that are FDA-approved to treat nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy. These medications are made in a laboratory.

What is CBD?

Studies to answer this question are underway. Some scientists are studying whether CBD could relieve some of the side effects of cancer and its treatment, such as pain, insomnia, anxiety, or nausea. Other scientists are studying whether CBD could potentially slow or stop the growth of cancer.

There have been some studies that show that CBD, alone or together with THC, may relieve pain, insomnia, or anxiety, but these studies were not specific to people with cancer. While no studies to date have shown that CBD eases these side effects specifically in people with cancer or people receiving cancer treatment, some people with cancer have reported benefits in taking CBD, such as helping with nausea, vomiting, depression, and other side effects. According to ASCO guidelines, your doctor may consider prescribing cannabinoids for chronic pain management if you live in a state where it is legal. However, ASCO guidelines state that there is not enough evidence to support the use of cannabinoids for preventing nausea and vomiting in people with cancer receiving radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

There is currently 1 CBD treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called Epidiolex, which is used to treat a rare and severe form of epilepsy in children. There are not currently any FDA-approved CBD medications for treating cancer or side effects of cancer treatments.

The National Institutes of Health has prepared a PDQ document (FAQs) on the topic of Cannabis and Cannabinoids. As is true when taking anything along with prescribed medications, be sure to talk to your doctor before taking CBD in any form.
