Aug 13, 2018 · Pembrolizumab (Keytruda), Cannabis and Cannabinoids in Lung Cancer

I never knew there was an unknown cancer out there. Sounds like you have good people working to solve this mystery. If it were me, given the situation, I wouldn't hesitate to use CBD and THC oil. Also, not just THC oil. But FECO oil. That's full extract cannabis oil. It's the most potent THC oil. It is what I will be using. When they took my lung, they also took 28 lymph nodes, some were cancer. They thought that might be the end of it, but they were wrong. Actually, my odds of it not coming back, were very bad, but no one told me that. So here we are. I am moving forward with using cannabis, as well. I will probably tell my oncologist, at some point. We'll talk again. Brian

Cindy. Where do you live and where are you going for medical help. From what you tell me, I am baffled. With me, the first thing they did, when they saw the kiwi size mass in my lung, was to do a bronchoscopy, take a sample of the tumor and test it. Pathology came right back with squamous cell cancer. I don't understand your situation. Brian

Cindy. Not sure what kind of cancer your husband has, but it's certainly easy enough for them to find out with a biopsy. My NSCLC is squamish cell carcinoma and they are treating me with Keytruda because I have positive PDL-1 markers. If your husband has negative PDL-1 markers, they should use Opdivo because it has never been tested for positive. The study I read about had 140 participants. 89 patients were on Opdivo alone and 51 were on that and cannabis. The ones who used only Opdivo, had a 37.5% effective rate and the patients who used both. Their effective rate dropped to 15.9%. That was the only study I found, so take it for what it's worth. Personally,
I think the study might be close to the same no matter which immunotherapy drug you go with because they are both in the same class with very similar side effects. I hope this has been a little helpful. Hope you get some so mb e answers soon. Brian

Cindy. Very sorry to hear of your husbands condition. It's sad when they can't find the origin of his cancer. Since I was handed a death sentence, I have nothing to lose, by changing my diet, which is very important, and try the cannabis oil. We all have to die, but I would sure like to post pone it for a while. Like you, I have done massive research. One study, in the UK, found that the cannabis oil cut the efficacy of the Ketruda, by over half. I know I'm not going to get the answers I am looking for, but have read many success stories of remission. I wish you and your husband the best of luck. Brian

Justin. Thanks for the reply. In my research, I have read from several sites and many testimonials that say they were cured, mostly, after about 3 months of use of cannabis oil. On just one site, for example, I asked a question and got 180 replies, giving advice and many success stories. I have spent many, many hours researching the use of CBD/THC Oil. For stage 4 metastatic cancer. Mine is non-small cell lung cancer. I know there have been medical studies done. But so much is still unclear. I am dealing with 3-6 months to live and am grabbing at straws for ways to stay alive longer. So far, the Keytruda does not appear to be working. I am getting desperate. Not sure where to go from here. Brian

Correction to my previous post about cannabis and Keytruda. Nivolumab is Opdivo and Keytruda is Pembrolizumab. I am on Keytruda.

Is it advisable to use CBD and/or THC Oil to try and shrink my tumors. I have stage 4, metastatic, non-small lung cancer. I read on study that suggests it cuts in half the efficacy of the Keytruda. Any thoughts?

Aug 10, 2018 · Using CBD/THC Oil to fight metastatic lung cancer in Lung Cancer

Stage 4, metastatic squamous cell lung cancer. One lung already removed. Currently on Keytruda and Taxol, which so far are not working. Am wanting to try cbd and thc oil, but not sure of initial dosing.
