Which cannabis product would offer someone with end-stage liver cancer more curative opportunities: 1:1 CBD-THC capsules or 70% THC oil?

My father, who had a liver transplant 1.5 years

ago has end-stage cancer now with metastasis to his lymphs and

bones. He has just started insulin potentiated chemotherapy and

medicinal cannabis (20 drops of Dronabinol and 1.5 grams of Bedrocan

daily). All these are under doctor control.

Apart from these, I am myself considering of buying CBD-THC

capsules (1:1 ratio) OR high THC oil (70%) for him.

2-Can the patient start cannabis capsules or oil during low-dose chemo?

  • Hi swing and sorry to hear of your father's prognosis. As someone who was diagnosed with liver cancer a few years ago, my gut feeling is that no cannabis will have curative properties at this stage, but may well make your father more comfortable. If he is already being given medicinal cannabis, may I ask the reason for looking to supplement privately?

  • Sure. The medical cannabis the doctor recommended is low dose, it is for pain and appetite. What I have been reading on the internet is that the concentrate forms of the plant creates miracles in some patients. I just want to try it, give it a chance, hope for something good, and not have regrets. Maybe a small chance, but on the other hand it seems that we are losing him anyway, and very fast

  • I'm very sorry to hear that, my grandmother passed earlier this year from cancer and every day I tried talking my family into allowing me to procure her some cannabis. A lot of people use cannabis during chemo, I think it should be administered as part of the procedure. I see no reason why he couldn't. With regard to the different cannabinoids I'd go with the CBD. If you can just get CBD. It's not psychoactive and won't impact on day to day functioning and has a multitude of benefits. What THC is it in the capsules? I assume Delta-9-THC?

  • Actually they told us that it is 1:1 CBD-THC. What kind of THC, I really don't know. I will ask that. I thought THC is one kind but it is converted in the liver.
