Oil made of high concentrate cannbis extract.  No you can't get a prescription from your doctor.  Even in state where medical marijuana is legal, I've found the oils aren't available in dose high enough that is thought to be helpful.   I know one person who is using it to keep her AA3 at bay, but she goes through a private party and it's very expensive.  THC has some success treating brain cancer cells in a petri dish, continues to be extremely under examined on a whole.  Hope that's of some assistance.

Just to add to last post. Here in Canada we have a medical license for THC and or CBD extracts. Actually both are found in natural marajuana buds of the plant. As far as proper amounts to be effective you will need to consult with physicians and other sources of information such as the internet(Google). I believe the THC extracts do help and you will need to be resouceful in finding the right amount.

The frontal lobe is where our "filter" is. Frontal lobe is responsible for maintaining appropriate movement, intelligence, reasoning, behavior, memory,, personality, planning, decision making, judgement, initiative, inhibition and mood. The front lobe of teenagers isn't completely developed yet, and can likely be associated with why they often make poor choices. (Irrationally acting out, telling their parents they hate them etc). I'm a hospice nurse. I've seen what cancer does and have responded countless times in similar situations to my patient family... wait. Your sister that has always had the personality of a saint didn't do this. Or say that. Her cancer did. If this is normal behavior for her over a life time, then by all means. Gently sit down and talk over a family meal - not over an event where it's all of us against you. That won't go well. I don't know your family member or if this is the norm for her to always have been hateful and pushing away. What I do know is confronting a frontal lobe brain cancer pt to discuss their attitude and behavior is a very delicate situation. One cannot rationalize with one that is not rational. If this is new behavior, its most likely the cancer that is quickly eating away at that precious neurological/brain tissue. If it's old behaviour.... well, I believe in mercy and kindness. And this is a terminal disease. I'd advise you chose your battles wisely. When she's gone, the last thing you want on your mind is what you should have done differently. A patient with frontal lobe cancer (as a nurse for me when dealing w such) is a complete you, patient, are always "right" (even though they aren't) they are the ones facing terminal illness. They are the one that is living with whatever that puts in your head. They are the ones that will die w family saying and pt thinking "before their time". Kindness matters - most especially when you are able to make rationale choices and decisions.
