Do! I started taking it while managing my sisters stage 4 lung cancer. It literally saved my life and managing my 3 super small kids these last 6 months. My anxiety from cancer and all its related stresses is managable and I just feel better. Have your family members and care givers take it too! I do 10mg of CBD in the morning for anxiety and 10mg at night to help with sleep.

Thank you for your comments. I will be the lab mouse.
Thank you for your helpful words. They are greatly appreciated at this time.
Curious- with all the state regulations and time required to get approved what do folks think about the cbd oils as an immediate option? Is it a scam like weight loss herbs? Or have folks seen results?
How do people know how much to take and if they are on other medications will that affect you. Who do you go talk to to get your answers from a professional. I am too “chicken” to try it without some form of medical guidance for both long cancer and spinal stenosis.

@sakota– Good morning. First you have to research the meds that you are taking and if they are compatible with CBD oil. I am on 2 different antidepressants and take CBD oil. I have no side effects other than the ones that I need.
Is their a dispensary near you? You can call them and ask, or ask your doctor. It's always a good thing to do that anyway.
You must have an ortho guy and I know that you have an oncologist. Have you checked with either?
Thank you for sharing.
I hope I was not misunderstood. I never said that CBD or THC is a 'cure' nor am I trying to give anyone false hope in treating or managing their cancer journey. However, the articles I referenced and the information we received from not one but three oncology groups (in relation to my husband's cancer treatment) were to use it if tolerable for him (which it is) as an adjunct to his medical care. If you will read the NIH reports they do state that CBD and THC show promise in treatment of cancer. Other uses have been confirmed as well now. The problem with CBD and THC is that with it's legal status little research has been possible and it frustrates some doctors because they see the early research and wish they had more concrete information. I am not a 'snake oil salesman' and I hope I have presented my thoughts carefully.
I think it should be noted that so many conventional cancer treatments used today can have serious side effects and limited efficacy as well and alternatives such as CBD and THC shouldn't be pushed aside without consideration.
I am 3 years cancer free (5 years from my initial diagnosis) of breast cancer. I didn't look to CBD or THC for myself although it was offered. I just now added it to my healthy lifestyle choices AND medical treatment, which included a bi lateral mastectomy. I am not suggesting that people look to a miracle drug for cure but instead evaluate all their options in treating their cancer because to be honest…………medical science is a practice and it's constantly evolving. I meant no harm or disrespect but ignoring alternative options is not wise either.
Could you tell me the dosage your husband uses please ?
