I’m a cancer patient. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer that had metastasized to lymph glands, liver and lungs, which closed off most options.
What that means is it was declared terminal, and I was given 2 to 3 years. That was in late Spring 2018.
I’ve been going through chemotherapy – and I’ve also been researching and trying medicinal cannabis both for symptomatic relief of chemo symptoms and as a possible weapon in the fight against the cancer itself.
The results of this are extremely interesting and promising. I’m going to document the things I find out during this process as well as how it’s working for me, different techniques for preparing and dosing with medicinal cannabis, and some of the science behind this. I hope some of you find it helpful, and if this proves to be an effective tool against cancer I hope I can help push back against the weight of societal ignorance and prejudice.
UPDATE December 2020: for the avoidance of doubt, I’ll make this as clear as I can. Cannabis oil saved my life. Chemo helped push it back and slow it down, but it was never expected to do anything more, let alone entirely eradicate it from my body as every scan since late 2018 has shown. Nothing is certain and there are no real ‘magic bullets’ in this life… but thanks to cannabis oil I’m not dead or in a hospice, I’m fit, healthy and active.
