Saw an online site that sell cannabis oil with THC, which is not only illegal but goodness knows what additives they contain.
Every single medication has unwanted side effects, even over the counter drugs. I have to check with the clinic before I take anything apart from paracetamol.
If one is on chemotherapy it’s hugely dangerous to take any medication, herbal or otherwise without checking with your Consultant.
I am not at all convinced, I have Myelodisplastic Syndrome RAEB2 which will eventually deteriorate into
All of us who are suffering from cancer want a cure and there are many charlatans online who will take advantage of our plight and fleece your bank account.
I have read of miraculous cures contributing to the us of cannabis oil, and have been told many times by friends that I should be using this.
I am aware that research has shown that cannaboids can effect blood changes in some forms of cancer and could possibly slow the growth of certain tumours. This does not claim it’s a cure.
Chronic myeloid leukemia tends to affect older adults, and while it can affect anyone at any age, it doesn’t typically affect children.
Medical cannabis for chronic myeloid leukemia may treat symptoms of the disease by:
What Is Chronic Myeloid Leukemia?
Although finishing the treatment may provide you with relief, it’s still difficult to not worry about a recurrence of the disease. Many people feel this way, and it often takes a long time before your fear goes away. Also, treatment itself has its uncertainties and can be stressful and troublesome.
Pain relief is among the most common uses of medical marijuana. Cancer patients face debilitating pain in some circumstances. Medical weed has THC and CBD in it, which both act as a natural pain reliever. They work together, providing you with outstanding pain relief.
Side effects of interferon may include:
There is a wide amount of variance in cannabinoid concentration amongst different strains and even in the same strain with changes in growing conditions. The amount of each dose was increased to match the response of the blast cells that had been declining previously (fig. (fig.1). 1 ). After day 27, there was another peak blast cell count of 66,000 followed by a rapid decrease. There were elevated levels of urate present in the blood with corresponding joint pain; it was established that this was caused by tumor lysis syndrome of the blast cells. Allopurinol was administered.
Blast cell counts, days 44–49: Hemp Oil #3.
Presentation of the Case
A new batch of hemp oil was obtained by the family from an outside source and the dosing regimen continued twice a day, shown in figure figure4 4 .
The blast cell count reached a peak of 374,000 on the 25th February 2009 (day 5), followed by a decrease, which correlated with the increasing dose. The daily dosing is the amount administered per dose; the doses were initially given once per day up to a total of 3 times per day by day 15, and were continued with the same average frequency throughout the treatment. A decreased use of morphine for pain, an increase in euphoria symptoms, a disoriented memory and an increase in alertness were observed; these are typical with cannabinoid use.
The results shown here cannot be attributed to the phenomenon of ‘spontaneous remission’ because a dose response curve was achieved. Three factors, namely frequency of dosing, amount given (therapeutic dosing) and the potency of the cannabis strains, were critical in determining response and disease control. In the figure, it can be seen that introducing strains that were less potent, dosing at intervals >8 h and suboptimal therapeutic dosing consistently showed increases in the leukemic blast cell count. It could not be determined which cannabinoid profiles constituted a ‘potent’ cannabis strain because the resin was not analyzed. Research is needed to determine the profile and ratios of cannabinoids within the strains that exhibit antileukemic properties.
