I found it finally lol

Hi folks, glad I found you, I am using medical cannabis for cancer and depression, I've decided that I will not do chemo after watching my mother and many friends over the years suffer through that particular form of hell, so I'm doing CBD regimen for what ails me we will see how that works out but I would rather have quality of life rather than quantity I'm doing a 1% THC with my cbd plus I've been and still smoke the weed, any way glad to be here to learn from others

Can you tell if it helps control symptoms or side effects better with the CBD oil?

I like it so far I add it to smoothies and food occasionally I just do some under my tounge , I am going with the idea that like antibiotics start with big doses at first ( 3x a day for first 3 weeks then doing a maintenance program of once a day, occasionally twice a day too keep a high percentage in bloodstream, so I guess we'll see as time goes on , this has been caught early so I figure after a year or so I will get rechecked, That is if the right wing hasn't destroyed the ACA act by then and we still have soc. Sec. Too be able too eat and get by.

I have a squamous(sp.?) cell tumor in the anal canal. I am using CBD oil, keeping my metabolism in the high alkaline region, reducing sugars(my weakness, but very important, as cancer feeds on sugar) as best I can, as much turmeric as we can reasonably fit in my diet, and several other detail protocols. The Radiation Oncologist assured me that in 6 months w/o chemo/radiation treatment, I would be wearing a colostomy bag, having had my anus removed. The treatments mentioned slowed the tumor growth such that I am now at about the year and a quarter mark. What turned slowed growth into tumor shrinkage was Colostrum, a therapeutic nutrient. At this point, my major pain producer is a really bad hemorrhoid, a result of blockage-induced straining for a movement, when the tumor was largest. So, I am on the mend. You can be, too. Do deep (find the source for assertions of efficacy, and what is their reputation, source of their claims, etc.) research on the inter-tubes, find out for yourself what works.
I would like to include whole plant juice, which includes THC-a, allegedly the most potent of the cannabinoids, but I live in Texas, Goddess help me.
By the way, the Cancer-Industrial Complex is largely interested your money, without regard to outcome. Did you notice that the "10-year survival rate" is no longer used to gauge success? It was found that at about 8 to 12 yrs, cancers directly attributable to the chemo and/or radiation treatments began showing up. Now, its a 5 year survival rate.
And I am on a severely limited, fixed income, and couldn't have afforded the co-pay for the first treatment. I could see the "Doctor" lose interest as soon as I told him that.
It is important that you do your own research and decide for yourself which protocols to use.
I am not a doctor and none of the above is to imply that I am giving you medical advice.

Edit: Watch your dose. We found out that more is not better and can be counterproductive. We reduced to just over half the recommended amount and got better results.
