BRCA screening has its limits in assessing dangers for women with a family history of disease, experts say

I've recently read a lot about cannabidiol and its potential to treat and cure glioblastoma (and many aggressive cancers.)
My husband's doctor won't hear anything about it and said "it's illegal" (it's not) and I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this and if it actually works or not?

I've been giving my sis CBD from DewX 500 mg that is legally sold and purchased; along with about 25 other natural products. Her tumor slowly progressed for about 7 months but it has grown big now. I put a few drops in her mouth everyday. It tastes like cinnamon. She can handle the taste. It's so hard to battle this cuz sugar and acid feed the tumor and decadron increases the blood sugar. It's also up to the person whom decides to take anything. There's so many natural products like extracts and such to get. Get what your husband is happy with.

Yes, this ministry has been investigating phytocannabinoid therapy in the treatment of cancers since the Youtube, "Run from the Cure" first came out in 2008. Of recent, we have published this study relating to those investigations and published same FYI in Facebook NOTE entitled, "Naturally derived Dronabinol (cannabis extract) improved by CBD's Cannabidiol additions & other compounds" https://www.facebook.com/notes/gregory-karl-davis/naturally-

We actually have the Dew Drops and the Dixie Scripts too. :)
I'm just afraid to give them to my husband now - in case they actually cause the tumor to grow. :( I was going to wait until the standard treatments essentially stop working and then go with the Dixie Scripts (25 mg of cannabidiol) and try one a day.
I have a question, however. You said you give your sis the Drops and 25 other natural products. Have you always given her the drops+ and THEN the tumor grew? Do you know what I mean? Could the Drops potentially have caused it to grow? Or did you start giving the drops AFTER the tumor grew?
Thanks so much!!

My dad's cousin who lives in New York works for an Oncologist and right now they are trialing Marinol which is all the beneficial parts of marijuana in the form of a pill to swallow. My dad hasn't started it yet, but if he has an MRI that shows his tumor stops responding then he will resort to that. My dad has GBM IV in his temporal lobe, not operable.

ah yup, sounds like we're in the same boat! and frankly, i dont see why anyone wouldnt try a natural thing when nothing else is working... hopefully we wont need to use our alternative options anytime soon though! (ps, also look into the banerji protocol - seems to have helped some people here and there is a post on this site about it. im going to ask the neuro-onc tomorrow about it. i know he'll say 'no' but im going to ask at least...)
