Cancer (Definition)

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.

Is it ok to take hemp oil if I take clopidogrel?

Do not know: Clopigrogel is an important antiplatelet agent. We do not know interaction with any product not studied by FDA. Impossible to say if it is safe or not. I would not risk it.

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.

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. Cbd-hemp-oil. Com high cannabidiol hemp oil (hcho) is a cutting edge hemp oil containing high concentrations.

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?

Will hemp oil capsules make you test positive for marijuana on a drug screening?

If ingested, maybe: This is not impossible from the general rumors - disclose that you take this to the testers if you ingest it (not just a skin lotion) and let them know to look beyond that. Bring the oil w/ you for the test. Good luck.

Will putting hemp oil on after tretinoin help soothe my skin and help with redness and peeling without effecting the tretinoin?

Will putting hemp oil on after tretinoin help soothe my skin and help with redness and peeling without effecting the tretinoin?

Why hemp oil?: Of all the moisturizers, why go out of your way looking for exotic things? If you stop using benzoyl peroxide you will be much less dry from that alone.

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!

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.

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.

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

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?

Can oil in stools be from cancer?

Can oil in stools be from cancer?

Malabsorption.: Fat in the stool (the "oil" to which you refer) typically indicates malabsorption, not cancer. But, malabsorption still deserves an investigation into cause.

Motor oil can cause cancer or irritate skin?

Motor oil can cause cancer or irritate skin?

No, Yes: Nobody's been able to measure an increased cancer risk consistently from motor oil; I think the studies of increased pancreatic cancer in mechanics are statistical flukes. The stuff does irritate your skin some if it's dirty.

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]
