Hi, My dad has been fighting this dreadful disease for 2 1/2yrs.  treatment consists of monthly chemo tabs. and he has also had radiation and 2 x surgeries.

I have done some research on treating  GBM with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main active component in marijuana.

And also treatment with Vit. B17 (from Apricot Kernels)

Does anyone know anything about either of these  treatments? 

grasping at straws now!

THC treatment requires large amounts of the chemical but it has not proven to be easy to get the amount of THC necessary to the brain.  Not even Cheech & Chong could smoke enough weed to get the amount of THC necessary to have an effect on GBM.

I guess Hux at this stage we are willing to try anything, if nothing else may help with sleeping and facial seizures.

Sad isnt it that the internet provides us with such false hope.

I started my sister on CBD tincture 500mg tincture about 3 months ago after I found the Dixiex website.  It's legal because CBD isnt psychoactive.  I live in a state that medicinal marijuana is illegal otherwise I would be getting THC oils long with the CBD to help her.  There is much info about THC and CBD for GBM including PubMed.  My sister's MRI in May 2012 tumor 1.5 cm; MRI Nov 27, 2012 3 cm.  I also give her 10k mg tumeric I ordered from England, lysosomal Vit C/glutiathone, 10k IU Vit D3, indirubin, pine bark extract, revitalize Q Plus, Maitake mushroom, ECGC and Bio Terrain Alkaline.  I mix it all into her ice cream.

Sorry, my answer was a little tongue and cheek. I don't think Marijuana will help cure Brain Cancer but may help improve a person’s quality of life. It would certainly help a person sleep and does increase appetite. Also have read some studies were it has be known to reduce seizures.

This may be helpful. We ordered this for my Father who is suffering from a GBM. This was a post from 2009 here on cancercompass.
