Can cannabis oil get you high?

Supposedly no: I suspect it can if it is not industrial hemp oil which has the psychoactive components removed. If it is home-made I would say the answer would definitely be yes. ...Read more

Can someone tell me if smoking cannabis just as benneficial as cannabis oil?

Can someone tell me if smoking cannabis just as benneficial as cannabis oil?

"beneficial?": There is little scientific evidence that cannabis, whether in the form of oil or smoking marijuana, has "beneficial" effects on most people, any more than alcohol does. For people with wasting syndromes, cancer, aids, hepatitis and other conditions, it can help them improve appetite and gain weight, and perhaps glaucoma and nausea/vomiting from cancer treatment etc. If equally potent, equal result. ...Read more

How to use cannabis oil to treat cancer?

I am aware of no: Evidence that cannabis in any form can treat any kind of cancer. I will refer your question to the holistic medicine person. Certainly cannabis has other functions in improving appetite in people with cancer, reducing the wasting process often associated with it, and particularly reducing nausea. So, it may have distinct role, but am unaware of any proof that it has any chemotherapeutic effect. ...Read more

There is plenty of literature out there about smoking cannabis and its affects, but what about consuming cannabis oil?

There is plenty of literature out there about smoking cannabis and its affects, but what about consuming cannabis oil?

Hard to say: You can likely find websites as well as I can. My understanding is that hemp oil produced industrially has no psychotropic properties. It is high in omega3 fatty acids and there are putative medicinal benefits that are yet to be officially proven. The science behind appears to be lacking, but uses are being tested for consumer purposes, both for things like soaps, human consumption and as a type of cancer. ...Read more

Met some people who used RSO (RickSimpson Oil) cannabis oil to cure their cancer, left out (cancer) last question. Thoughts on validity of claim?

Cannabis oil: This oil has not been evaluated to FDA standards in order to determine its efficacy or safety. This does not mean it is not safe or effective, but up until now most research has been done by advocates. Do you think it plausible that a single oil could cure all cancer types as claimed? ...Read more

Mayb not appropriate I apologise, bt does cannabis oil cure cancer, my sister has cancer, I'm from ireland, thinkn of goin to California to try it?

No: Unfortunately, neither cannabis oil, peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, lavender oil, nor any other snake oil cures cancer. Cancer is not one disease, but a group of many diseases. Some cancers are curable, others are not. Treatment is almost always available, up to a point where treatment is no longer effective or where a patient no longer wants to be treated. ...Read more

Good Question: Although I am not aware of a specific study on cannabis oil and wbc, there was a study showing that hemp seed which contains thc as its active component has long term toxicological implication such as bone marrow suppression with respect to the concentration given on the erythrocytes of mammals. It is recommended that individuals who have anemia or immunosuppression not use thc on a regular basis. ...Read more

My mom has breast cancer in brain. Wondering if there are any natural treatments such as cannabis oil or anything else that we can do now?

Maybe: There are two sites that I know of that cover naturopathic methods to help palliate cancer symptoms. One is through the goshen cancer center in indiana. The other is memorial sloan kettering cancer center in new york. If you go to either website and look for the naturopathic or alternative medicine site, they may have suggests and/or contact information for you. ...Read more

Is taking medical cannabis (as oil) on top of anti-depressants, contraindicated? Can they interact badly or is there no relation? Thanks

Cannabis is also: Serotonergic, as are anti-depressants. The problem is that there are up to 11 different types of serotonin (15 in some studies). Anti-depressants target some of them, each med targeting a different pattern of serotonins. Cannabis also does this, and may overlap with what the meds are doing, hence "messing" with the effectiveness. Plus, pot is not standardized, so each dose varies. Bad ide ...Read more

What are the health effects of smoking hemp oil (not cannabis)?

What are the health effects of smoking hemp oil (not cannabis)?

Hard to say: There have been a number of recent reviews of potential effects from the higher levels of cannabidiol (not THC) in hemp oils, and how they might have anti-tumor effects, anti-convulsant effects particularly in some refractory childhood forms of epilepsy, as well as effects for treatment of neuropathic pain and muscle spasm. However, as with THC there is uncertainty in dosing, purity, other issues. ...Read more

I have ileal chrons disease, and I am seeking an opinion of the use of cannabis oils for treatment.

Natural option: 27y male seeks Cannabis for Chron's, but lives reactionary State &, from that point of view, is too dangerous. I have noted benefit in males w. Chron's. Ingestion of teas & butters, prepared less than 220 degrees Fahrenheit, avoids decarboxylating & activating THC-A to psychotropic THC, might more effectively encounter gastrointestinal mucosa. A 1gm joint has about 10mg of THC-A; consideration. ...Read more

Everything?Really?NO: For certain conditions and medical situations, TCH and canibanoids have been scientifically proven to be effective forms of treatment.

Can you tell me about cannibis oil and cancer?

Can you tell me about cannibis oil and cancer?

More research needed: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of Cannabis as a treatment for any medical condition. To conduct clinical drug research in the United States, researchers must file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the FDA.

The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. Although few relevant surveys of practice patterns exist, it appears that physicians caring for cancer patients in the United States who recommend medicinal Cannabis predominantly do so for symptom management.[2] ...Read more

Although studies on : Efficacy & safety have barely begun, parents of children with intractable epilepsy, with or without Autism, have purchased CBD oil in Colorado. Since medical marijuana is now legal in Nevada, affected families don't have to leave home. My hometown has always promoted cohort situational behaviors in visitors, leaving the visitors feeling slightly naughty & happy & us with no state income tax. ...Read more

Does Cannibas Oil help lower eye pressure for glaucoma patients? I have read that it helps and hurts. I am interested in taking it for anxiety.

Does Cannibas Oil help lower eye pressure for glaucoma patients? I have read that it helps and hurts. I am interested in taking it for anxiety.

Most of the info: I was able to discover about cannibas use and glaucoma was anecdotal, but I did find one study in the British Journal of Ophthalmology that supports its use in lowering intraocular pressure. Obviously one never wants to be in the position of using illegal drugs even if they have helpful properties. Discuss with your ophthalmologist. If approved, pursue channels for legal use within your state. ...Read more

THC heavy strains like sativas can be associated with paranoia and anxiety. ...Read more
