my partner has just had a mastectomy - the tumor was quite large 92 mm & of 16 lymph nodes removed 7 were found to be cancerous - she has just had a c t scan & marrowbone scan & if the results show the cancer has not spread then she should start chemotherapy next Friday. We have a supply of cannabis oil but my partner is reluctant to start taking it fearing the oil will compromise the effects of chemotherapy - do you have any advice that might help her to decide whether to take the oil alongside her chemotherapy treatment. She is 48 years old & is opting to use the cold cap during chemotherapy hoping this might help hair loss.
thank you in advance
Some reports suggest that CBD oil might help some people who have cancer - it does seem to help with some of the side-effects of chemo for instance. haven't seen any proper medical studies that suggest that it's a good idea to use it *instead of* Tamoxifen. It's okay to try it alongside the treatment your doctor recommends, but Tamoxifen is a very highly researched drug and is proven to be effective for breast cancer.
Tamoxifen works by blocking the production of the hormones that were in effect feeding your hormone positive cancer. Studies show that taking Tamoxifen (or similar, ie Letrozole) blocks the uptaken and production of hormones, and people live longer and are less likely to have a re-occurance.
I have been on Tamoxifen for 3 years now. I have to take it for ten years. I took cbd oil when I was having chemo and I do think it helped a bit with the sickness. Tamoxifen is estimated to be giving me a 25% increased chance of survival over five years. I had a 2.8cm lump , very hormone sensitive, and 6/17 lymph nodes positive. So for me, I think Tamoxifen will increase my chances of surviving. And I hate taking tablets too!
I would avoid THC. I've seen people swear that you need high THC but I've heard horror stories from women with estrogen receptor cancers who say THC was fuel to a fire. I've been looking at a site called Realm of Caring for products they recommend and through them I found Charlotte's Web. HIgh CBD/low to no THC. I only JUST ordered it, can't speak to any healing properties, but I wish us all the best of success.
From what I've been able to learn, if you are ER+, HER+ OR triple positive, then you do NOT want anything with THC. There's talk of THC actually almost boosting estrogen, not the CBD. I'm only newly diagnosed, but I'm looking at Charlotte's Web for my oil.
I have just had breast cancer surgery, they can't at present give me radiation treatment because they found a shadow/nodule on my lung plus I cant have hormone treatment as I have osteoporosis, so I really want the oil that can help. Thank you
I have just had surgery for breast cancer and am awaiting scan results on my lung for a shadow/nodule. I want to get the oil used for treating cancer.

I would be grateful if anyone could get me some good and effective oil. My husband has terminal cancer which has now spread to his brain. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy have now failed to work and this is his last chance. Please can someone help
I'm really interested in getting some good quality CBD oil to use for my breast cancer. Could you give me details of where you got it from?
This site gives some advice on dosage and suggests starting lower and increasing slowly: https://www.cureyourowncancer.org/dosage.html
