Mike, what kind of breast cancer (invasive ductal, I presume)? How many of her lymph nodes were positive? How big was the primary tumor? Reason I ask is that in women with Stage I or IIA tumors that are estrogen-and progesterone-receptor-positive and HER2-negative (ER+/PR+/HER2-) with three or fewer positive lymph nodes, there is a genomic assay test on a sample of the tumor, called OncotypeDX, that will tell doctors whether chemo is necessary or would even work at all. Medicare covers that test 100%.That type of breast cancer mentioned above, which I had as Stage IA, is treated in postmenopausal women with anti-estrogen drugs called aromatase inhibitors(aka AIs: anastrazole, letrozole, or exemestane)which have as a side effect joint pain. CBD oil is effective for this joint pain it is not, I repeat, NOT a substitute for chemo, radiation or these anti-estrogen drugs.So don’t assume your mom’s cancer will require chemo; but if it does, CBD helps with those side effects as well. If she lives in a state where medical marijuana is legal, there are doctors who sub-specialize in certifying applications for a medical marijuana card, and in the interim before the card is issued can advise as to the appropriate dose of CBD oil (legal and over-the-counter in all 50 states). Some (though not most) medical oncologists will certify their own patients’ medical marijuana card applications so she need not seek out another doctor; and will advise the appropriate dose for her symptoms. Once she gets her card, the “budtenders” in the licensed dispensaries can advise her as to the right CBD product (with or without THC), strength, and dosage. If she lives in a state where recreational weed is legal, the “budtenders” in the marijuana shops can steer her to the right strength of CBD oil and the right dosage.
My pain has lessened and my sleep pattern has improved. I must have REM sleep as I remember my dreams now. The first two days of taking CBD oil, the white sore on my subliminal saliva gland which was there for months and made the sublingual area tight and sore disappeared. I cancelled my oral surgeon appt. after the my second opinion dentist didn’t see an issue. But, the recommended dose at night kept me awake so I discontinued the CBD. Then I decided it was working so I restarted it with a lower dose in the morning and the pain and sleep noticeably improved with this regimen, so I am sticking with it.
Before, Soul CBD I was under a lot of stress — I was putting in 16 hour days, exhausted and I couldn’t stop overthinking and overanalyzing every little thing. I felt like my thoughts were running wild in a million different directions! I was restless and couldn’t seem to RELAX. I used to gravitate towards a prescription drug to help calm me but it wasn’t ideal to take this kind of pill daily. I’m so grateful I found Soul CBD. It tastes great, works quickly and helps calm me so I can SLOW DOWN. It’s a Godsend!
