Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body.

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

Is it safe to take olanzapine and cbd hemp oil?

Is it safe to take olanzapine and cbd hemp oil?

No data available: It is hard to trust the website that says that cbd hemp oil has no psycho active properties and then goes on to list a broad range of psycho active effects. Until there is adequate medical research done, I would discourage you from using this product if you are taking zyprexa (olanzapine). Best wishes.

I am wondering if you can get addicted to a product called Elixinol, it is a hemp oil and coconut extract combination made up of hemp seeds and stalks?

I am wondering if you can get addicted to a product called Elixinol, it is a hemp oil and coconut extract combination made up of hemp seeds and stalks?

Not very likely: At least from a physical dependency point of view. Hemp oil and similar products have a lot of CBD (cannabinodiol), which actually has actions which are pretty much the opposite of THC, and are not thought to be able to produce physical dependency. However, physical dependency is not a necessary component for having addiction (better termed now a severe substance use disorder). Why the concern? ...Read more

Does CBD (Hemp) Oil Work with treating epilepsy?? Our daughter is having myoclonic seizures and is meds but looking for input on cannabis oil

Does CBD (Hemp) Oil Work with treating epilepsy?? Our daughter is having myoclonic seizures and is meds but looking for input on cannabis oil

Yes: It has been proven in some countries such as Isreal, that it works better with seizure patients than traditional meds. Esepcialy on children. But it has not yet been approved by the FDA. So we as doctors can not recommend it. Not Yet. If you use it you are doing it at your own risk. ...Read more

Will putting hemp oil on my face letting it soak in for 30 minutes then put Retin a (tretinoin) on minimise redness and flaking?

Will putting hemp oil on my face letting it soak in for 30 minutes then put Retin a (tretinoin) on minimise redness and flaking?

Possibly: Products like Retin-A exfoliate the skin, and WILL cause some dryness and flaking in some people. If this is too bothersome, try applying every other night. A moisturizer can help with the flaking, but use caution. Some people have had acne breakouts using hemp oil in their face, so if your acne worsens, stop the oil. You can also ask your Dr what moisturizer he/she recommends! ...Read more

What supplements should be taken for a vegan diet? Taking 1000 mcg b12, 4 grams omega 3 from hemp oil and ground flax and protein from lugumes. Thx.

What supplements should be taken for a vegan diet? Taking 1000 mcg b12, 4 grams omega 3 from hemp oil and ground flax and protein from lugumes. Thx.

Minerals & vitamin D: Vegans are likely to become deficient in vitamin D, calcium, iodine, iron, vitamin A, zinc, and iodine. Even if you supplement, the diet is primarily a moral rather than a health-promoting decision; when you control for the fact that vegans have other healthy habits, the claimed benefits mostly vanish. It's your decision and I'm glad you've asked. ...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

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

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

I cook with olive oil daily. Will this cause cancer?

I cook with olive oil daily. Will this cause cancer?

Everything causes Ca: Frying food releases low grade carcinogens, so use the best ventilation you can. The risk is small but proven epidemiologically (cooks get more Ca) and by sampling air around cooking areas. (http://pubs. Rsc. Org/en/content/articlelanding/2006/em/b516173h/unauth#! divAbstract)
There are much greater cancer risks out there, like smoking and excessive drinking, so I wouldn't get hung up on olive oil. ...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

Is hemp seed oil benifitial? Does it interact with any medications or vitamins?

Is hemp seed oil benifitial? Does it interact with any medications or vitamins?

Very,? blood thinners: Hemp seed oil has the ideal mix of essential omega 3 & 6 fatty acids as well as other beneficial compounds & is arguably the healthiest oil (though not good for cooking).
There are no known interactions but because it is a natural blood thinner caution should be used if on blood thinners.
