My friend found this and I am passing this to all . We are still in our struggle (Glio IV. )Two researchers at the CPMC, have been studying the effects of a derivitive from cannibus. Cannabidiol has been use to treat nausea etc. for years. They have found it ( in higher doses) to stop the spread of cancer cells particurally in breast and brain cancer. Their study was released in 2007 and and update on the research released 9-19-12. They want to start human trials. Please read article and go to the medical center web page for further info. I know some of you are good at research, if anyone finds out any more info. please pass on. Many of us are in the fight of our or our love ones life!
Peace to all.

The link you provided didn't work so I've included them below. I had to hold my nose to go to the huffington post, but did it just for you. The important things to take from this study so far is that they are concentrating on breast cancer and hoping it may relate to other cancers such as those affecting the brain. However, success in the petri dish and in mice often does not end up resulting in similar gains when it comes to humans. The research work also appears to be concentrating on metastasis which is generally not an issue for primary brain cancers. There is also the highly evasive issue of getting past the blood-brain barrier in humans to deliver the therapy. There wasn't any detail at all related to brain cancers such as GBM so it's difficult to judge just how effective this research will be for brain cancer. However, it is an interesting concept and worth watching. Of particular note, the researcher makes clear that simply lighting up a "bone", a "joint", is not effective and does nothing to stop the cancer. If only it were that simple.

First time I herad about it was by an east coast dr and DNA researcher I then told my NO and said another patient was trying on an edible cookie presentation it and that some info suggested its benefits so I have tried it on the popcorn presentation and plan to try it in a convenient way that is not as sweet my NO did warn me about dosing it because its probable side effects since I had never tried it before in any presentaTION

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
