    My mother was diagnosed with bladder cancer back in April. Long story short, she almost immediately started chemo. She has since had her bladder removed and is doing well. However, the chemo was brutal. After her first round, she had to be hospitalized for dehydration, as she was unable to eat or drink due to severe nausea. Unfortunately, she lives in a state w/o medicinal MJ. So I did what any son worth his salt would do, I flew down and procured some medicine.

    I rendered it into butter and made brownies. My conservative mother, was a bit hesitant at first, but she gave it a go. An hour after eating the brownie, she walked into the kitchen and ate the lunch I had prepared for her. While the food was more or less tasteless to her (a side effect of chemo) she was able to eat and drink w/o nausea. I have always advocated for medicinal MJ, but after that I was absolutely sold. In her words, MJ, "may very well have saved her life". It's taken me some time to even be able to type (let alone say) these words without getting absolutely choked up.

    Anyhow, I came back to my medical MJ friendly state and put my money where my mouth, is and got my card. It has helped my depression and anxiety greatly. I really hope (despite our soon to be fascist president) more states allow medicinal, at the very least. It boggles my mind that there are those who would not allow the sick to gain some relief, while life destroying narcotics are given out like candy.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    I am happy that you have finally been able to come to the truth of cannabis. It is a shame we have to fight not only trough legal obstacles, but the cultural ones we deal with at home are as difficult to deal with. It is hard to move people's minds from associating cannabis with bad but your story is adding to the wonderful fire of the plant.

    I have watched a video on cannabis awareness that I will share below. It is a great piece to share about cannabis entrepreneurs saying what they would say to people who think cannabis is "bad". A great piece to share with others to help inspire people to learn for themselves.

    I used cannabis oil to facilitate the removal of skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma) with great success! Applied liberally and covered with a tegraderm patch, vanished in 4 weeks or so but I kept putting it on for another 2 weeks after no longer visible just to be sure. That was 4 years ago, has not returned :rockon:

    @Wiired , What exact product did you use? I'm overdue for the scalp external chemo-therapy treatment. Dermatologist found some nasties and said I need either the : A. chemo cream on the scalp to kill the bad cells, but pretty bad skin reddening/pain/itch side effects. Pharmacy said the two creams used together for better results would be $900.... my share.
    B. Blue light treatment done in hospital as out patient. 4 hours. Slather on their special light reactive cream, wait 2 hours, go under the blue light to crank 'em up and kill the baddies right now. Might not be quite as effective as #1 but covered by insurance with me just owing small deductible.
    Anybody have personal experience with either of these options??

    What was your product, a cream with both THC and CBD? Or just CBD? For a while, I rubbed some CBD cream on my scalp and it seemed to make the bumps start to shrink. I also asked my Dr, could they/would they monitor my use of CBD cream, just so they could have anecdotal experience for their next patient. I volunteered to have then take before and after pics to make it more objective with visible evidence BUT no can do.

    I only have access to CBD cream but I'd guess that CBD + THC cream would be more effective?
    Wish there were research results to zero in on best product.

    I used a simple ethanol extraction of half durban poison and half Mazar, applied heavily on the area and covered with a tegraderm patch. Changed every 3 days, left off for a day after 6 days. Repeated for 4 weeks after which it was pretty much vanished. Keep applying for 2 weeks after just to be sure.

    I would go with the best treatment the specialist are suggesting. What’s $900 when we are talking about your life. I have no experience with what you are going through but have had breast cancer and so far so good. I went through radiation and taking tamoxafin for 3 more years.

    Can’t hurt to do the cannabis oil treatment as well.
