Hello! I am so glad to have found you all here. My mom was just diagnosed with GBM IV and I have come to stay with her and help her navigate all that entails. I recently read a few articles in medical journals about using Cannabidiol (CBD) to slow the growth of tumors. I am wondering if anyone on this board has used or is using this. We are looking to supplement the traditional western medicine approach. Thank you for any information you can share with me!
p.s. I am also open to anything else you would like to share about ketogenic diet, Banerji protocol, kale smoothies, whatever you have found to beneift!

Use the CBD!!!!!!! If Sanjay Guptta can come ot on national T.V. and apologize for the misleading informationof CBD......what does that tell you? It is being used at UCSF fo experimaental purposes! Did you not hear of thelittle girl in Colorado that was having 200-3-- seizures a month, but now is only having at the most 3 a month! Your mother will eventually be on an anti seizure med, but I tell you what, if I had a GBM....Being a chemo R.N. that I am, and have a hubby with melanoma and a brainn growth, I will give them whatever is necessary, especially for a peaceful journey!
