Has anyone used CBd oil along with Chemo for treatment. Im using in hopes of it assisting with tumor shrinkage and not just for coping with Chemo side effects. Just started few days ago. Any experience?

I got some for my mum to cope with side effects. but we haven't started yet as she doesn't like the sound of it. I hope it works for you, and wish you all the best

I have been using it since a few months after my diagnosis so about a year and a half. I make up my own capsules with high grade CBD oil and then THC oil that I get from my medical dispensary. I don't think it's done anything for my cancer (it came back stage IV three weeks after finishing 12 rounds of folfox) but I can honestly say that it has been invaluable in terms of reducing pain and helping me sleep. I don't have to take the anti nausea meds that caused constipation which is another bonus. Hope you find relief as well.

It was heavily recommended by a few of the nurses - I'm just so old that there's a stigma in my mind attached to it. I did check out the dispensaries in my area and that's about it. I don't think that I'd have any problems getting a prescription but I'm through Adjuvant chemo and I can deal with the neuropathy issues at their current levels.

I used CBD in conjunction with chemotherapy treatment, but not with the hopes of shrinking a tumor.
While limited evidence in the petri-dish seems to support the fact that CBD and THC both encourage apoptosis of cells including cancerous, I'd certainly not forego standard care.
From the reading I've done it seems that those stories of cure or tumor eradication used very heavy amounts of CBD/THC of 1000mg or more every day for 60-90 days.
My usage of CBD was usually around 50mg per day and THC was probably only around 5mg some nights when I wanted a solid sleep. I still do use CBD mostly for the powerful anti-inflammatory properties it has. Of course in my mind I'm also thinking about the anti-cancer properties too. It was invaluable to me during treatment as I never became nauseated with the exception of the week that I didn't use CBD. It also did quite well in minimizing bone pain from the granix shots.

I had a few nurses suggesting use prior to treatment as well and thankfully took to it.
With CBD the stigma has absolutely zero merit as the CBD extraction is completely non-psychoactive.
You won't feel any shift of consciousness with it. Of course THC is another matter and both are derived from the same plant.

Best of luck to you Trying. I hope you receive positive results with your experimentation.

You can order a high quality hemp-derived CBD oil directly from CWHemp without a prescription:

I'm sure there are other places but CWHemp's Charlotte's Web oil was recommended to me because of the quality of the oil and I just stayed with them.
