I was diagnosed with liver cancer in December and only had 6 months. I have been offered chemo tabs but don't like the sound of the side effects. Somebody said about cannabis oil and would like to find out more.
Hi Sheshe and welcome to the forum although I'm sorry for the reason you are posting.
I know you would like to find out more about cannabis oil so I just thought I'd jump in first to let you know that cannabis oil is not legal in the UK because it contains the mind-altering substance THC. However, hemp (or CBD) oil is legal in the UK as it has extremely low levels of THC so doesn’t have any mind-altering effects.
Scientists have been working hard to understand the potential benefits of using molecules found in cannabis (cannabinoids) to treat cancer for a while now and whilst research is on-going there isn’t enough reliable evidence to prove that cannabinoids – whether natural or synthetic – can effectively treat cancer in patients at the present time, as discussed in this very interesting blog article.
I hope you find this information helpful Sheshe.
