I Start Immunotherapy Friday, It appears THC/CBD may very well interfere with my therapy! I use Tinctures, Pills, RSO, Rick Simpson Oil, most potent Cannabis Med! I'll have to stop right off the bat, I NEED pain med & sleeping help! I there anything I can do?

Such a good question, Cobraguy. I'm hoping that @merpreb can offer some insight.

I'm glad that you found the information regarding the drug interactions between CBD and immunotherapy. You don't want to go through treatment for cancer only to have its effect reduced by a pain and sleep aid. There are other options, even if you only use them for the duration of therapy. Have you talked to your oncologist about alternatives for pain management and sleep help?

What type of cancer do you have?

@cobraguy223– Thank you, Colleen. good morning @cobraguy- I agree that staying away from THC/CBD can interfere with some immunotherapies so I applaud your decision. I suggest that you talk to your oncologist about pain relief and sleeping help. That way it will be very safe. Also, your immunotherapy might lessen your symptoms as it works.

Do you know what kind of immunotherapy you will take and its effects?
