There has been research that shows that this part of the plant has some medical benefits, one of which is helping to stop cell growth in certain types of cancer.
“Although this research is in it’s early stages, this is a really exciting and promising study. H opefully, in the future clinical trials (testing on humans) will provide insight into whether using CBD in combination with chemotherapy will help improve survival rates for pancreatic cancer patients.
About the study
The research, funded by Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, is in the very early stages and still needs to be tested in humans which is likely to take some time. However, l ead researcher of the study, Professor Marco Falasca from Queen Mary University in London, says:
We are really looking forward to seeing how this research will progress and ultimately, help pancreatic cancer patients.”
The new study, looked at the impact of CBD on mice with the disease, receiving the common chemotherapy drug Gemcitabine .
Hi again. I think you are allowed to mention cbd oil as long as it is a reasonable statement and not telling everyone to use it! The moderators will tell you if I am wrong. Can I ask you to remove the name of the hospital where your dad is being treated (because if I don’t, the moderators will). It is just that the terms and conditions say we are not supposed to name hospitals – not exactly sure why, it is probably quite complicated if people start saying good things about one hospital and another says bad things and it can seem like free publicity and not fair on hospitals that are equally good but not mentioned. Golly, I am rambling. I don’t know how old the grandchildren are but it is generally wiser to keep them informed (in a simplified way) – I have cared for a few friends and neighbours in terminal illness and found that the best outcomes (for the children) were where they were told that grandad was ill and they visited him and were able to ask questions. It is amazing what they can accept (and conversely how they imagine awful things if they are not told.) This must be an awful time for you and I hope that you and your family are trying to support each other throughout. Keep in touch if you want to talk about it. Annie

Just a quick further note. I have found a post on the forum which names people who have experience of caring for someone with pancreatic cancer so just thought I would attach the post so that you can contact any or all of them if you wish. It is dated September 2018 so I expect you will be able to contact at least some of them. Feel free to come back to me if you need help with this. Annie

There have been reports that cannabinoids like THC and CBD may be helpful for nausea and vomiting and anorexia, as well as neuropathy, anxiety, depression and insomnia. Synthetic cannabinoids like dronabinol have been approved for use with chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, but have not been shown to be superior to conventional anti-nausea medications.
Studies on a certain CBD manufacturer showed its products were contaminated with a chemical known as 5F-ADB, which mimics THC. 5F-ADB is classified by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as illegal, potentially addictive and with no accepted medical use.
What’s the most important thing cancer patients should know about CBD oil?
What is CBD oil, and how does it differ from marijuana and hemp?
Is there any truth to the claims that CBD oil can cure cancer?
