Dear Cancer Coach-My future mother in law has stage 3 ovarian cancer and we have been using a full spectrum C-B-D oil. The pain had not subdued. Would you be able to potentially recommend another option. I was thinking CBD and THC combo as suggested in your notes above but kind of don’t know where to start. Caregiver DIL
Dear Caregiver DIL-
I am sorry to read of your future MIL’s ovarian cancer diagnosis. The challenge with CBD oil is that different strains of CBD oil contain very different percentages of both cannabinoids as well as THC. Therefore you can’t really tell what you’re taking unless the amounts/percentages are written right on the bottle.
To complicate things further, while cannabinoids have been shown to help with chemo side effects like nausea and pain in general, my experience is that the pain these studies refer to is bone pain. My guess is that your future MIL is experiencing a different kind of pain.
Other options- First, if you obtain an oil with a higher percentage of THC (the componant that gives the high), I have been told that patients who take THC for pain do so my putting drops under their tongue right before bed. They sleep well and feel little pain.
Another option is to treat your future MIL’s ovarian cancer. Surgically removing her tumor may relieve much of her pain. Further, her ovarian cancer pain should subside once she reaches remission.
If you can reply with specifics about the type of pain your MIL is experiencing (bone, bloating, nausea, etc.) I wll be able to provide more info for you.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.
