Re: CBD oil to help with cancer

I have been diagnosed with LCIS and am looking into the use of CBD oil. I went to Amsterdam recently and asked there about CBD oil. The good news is that cannabis oil does seen to have a positive impact on health...I totally get that there is not enough research to give assurances.... the bad news though is that to be effective the CBD needs to be at least 20% and in the UK the maximum is only about 3%..Of course you can buy the seeds- the really helpful people in the cannabis seeds shops told me exactly which ones....but it's illegal in the UK to grow it....and having looked into this...it all seems complicated and it's not like you can nip to your local "growing weed?" Shop to ask for advice.....I have decided therefore to use the 3% CBD oil which can be bought in the UK.....continue with my health regime - I also take Reishi mushrooms, exercise & don't drink alcohol....and keep my fingers crossed.....

Hi Mai7

 

You're right that article is all a bit mixed up on the info it gave on Tamoxifen and CBD oil receptors. Dropping it under the tongue and vaping it doesn't make any difference, the receptors are not in the digestive system.   The receptor they are talking about is an enzyme that is secreted by your liver - enzyme CYP2D6 is responsible for the metabolism and removal of approximately 25% of clinically used drugs.   So any drug that you take by any means, meets up with the liver receptor enzymes eventually.   

 

The 'conflict' they're talking about is how fast, or how slow a drug is removed from your system by this enzyme.  

 

If you go to the wikipedia article on CYP2D6 you can see a list of all of the drugs that speed up or slow down based on these enzyme levels.  CBD oil is down as an inhibitor, which means that using it would slow down the speed that Tamoxifen is removed from the body.  I'd be more worried if it super speeded it up.  

If you're at all concerned go have a chat with your local pharmacist about it, you could show him or her the article on CYP2D6 and ask him or her to explain it.  My brother is a pharmacist and that's how I got my head around it all. 

My take on it all is that it seems okay to take CBD oil by any means, drops or vape.

 

I believe there are already a number of serious studies into the effect of CBD and cannabis on cancer, so hopefully they'll work out whether it has any serious benefits in the not to distant future.

Re: CBD oil to help with cancer

Here is a recent article about CBD oil followed by the website I've purchased from: https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/news/derby-news/grandmother-says-cancer-almost-gone-967552

 

https://canabidol.com/

 

I put a couple of small drops under my tongue so it absorbs quickly into the blood stream. I also vape it to get it into the blood stream. I read somewhere that there may be a conflict in the liver between tamoxifen and CBD oil trying to compete for the same receptors and the CBD oil may block the tamoxifen. Dropping it under the tongue and vaping it avoids it entering the digestive system and the liver processing it into the bloodstream, it gets in direct instead. I only read about the tamoxifen clash on one website which wasn't a particularly reliable source so it could be complete garbage.

Re: CBD oil to help with cancer

I see a lot of people using charlottes web. I am considering this, but have seen that it is very important to make sure that ratios are correct. In view of this - is it really safe to be taking? ER positive and HER2 receptive

Re: CBD oil to help with cancer

Hi!!

My mother has been diagnosed with GBM GRADE IV.

She was taking the charlottes web cbd oil but was told to come off it now she’s started chemo tablets (temodal)

Does anyone know if she can carry on using cbd oil with chemo? As I feel our oncologist didn’t know much about ir.

Re: CBD oil to help with cancer

Hi - I'm also confused about the labelling of CBD:

to a layperson what does this actually mean:

10ml = 500mg Whole Plant Extract >30% CBD = 150mg CBD (1.5%)

 

To me it's saying that in every 500mg of dried extract the cbd content is at or greater than 30%, thus in a 10ml bottle it's 150mg, and in a 30ml bottle it's 450mg cbd (3x 150mg).

 

But why does it indicate in brackets 1.5%? 1.5% of what?

And what is the carrier oil (if there is one)? 

 

Am I correct in saying that a 10ml bottle contains an extract of cbd oil that is 30% strength but that it is mixed in a solution of a.n.other oil and is so diluted that the bottle contains now 1.5% actual cbd oil?

 

Clarification required to assist me through this minefield of purchasing please.

 

Many thanks

Hi Zena, I'm looking into taking cbd oil. But I don't know if it is safe to take with tamoxifen. Are you taking tamoxifen as well?
Thanks
