Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

I am both a long-term Multiple Myeloma survivor and Myeloma cancer coach. The non-conventional cancer therapy I am asked about most often is about cannabis, C-B-D oil, cannabinoids aka medical marijuana. Though the research is thin, studies indicate that cannabidiol is an anti-oxidant, is anti-angiogenic and promotes bone health- all properties that are important to multiple myeloma (MM) patients and survivors.
As for C-B-D actually being cytotoxic to MM, the issue is not yes or no, the issue is whether or not THC or CBD is therapy by themselves or is a strain of a combination of the two is needed. And if a combination of CBD and THC is needed, what ratio? What strain is best? Where can I buy it?
Not only is Multiple Myeloma complicated but so it Cannabis as a myeloma therapy. The MM mind map and cannabis infographic should help you wrap your mind around these two topics.

I’ve linked the article below because journalist Beth Rankin has been able to clearly distinguish CBD oil made from “100% industrial hemp” versus CBD oil made from medical marijuana. Cancer patients want CBD oil made from medical marijuana.
It is critical that you become an active participant in your care. Learn everything you can.
I am alive today largely because I took the time to find out everything I could about Multiple Myeloma and sought out the full spectrum of evidence-based MM therapies both conventional (FDA approved) and non-conventional.

“On a recent visit, mulling over our options, we spotted an interesting option on the add-in menu: CBD oil…
Marijuana contains two primary active molecules: THC, which gets you stoned, and CBD, or cannabidiol, which does not get you high. We’ve long been aware of certain medical benefits inherent in THC — like pain relief and increased appetite for cancer patients undergoing chemo — but cannabidiol “was thought to be biologically inactive in humans,”
“But in the past 10 years, scientists have concluded that CBD may be quite useful. Dozens of studies have found evidence that the compound can treat epilepsy as well as a range of other illnesses, including anxiety, schizophrenia, heart disease and cancer.”
“The CBD oil we (JuiceLand) use is derived from 100 percent industrial hemp, where a medical grade is derived from medical marijuana,” says Heather Turner, manager of shop operations for JuiceLand…
An hour later, I was at home doing laundry when I found myself feeling particularly relaxed. Soon after, I fell into a deep, restful sleep, which is not common for me…”
“Here we report that the major non-psychoactive cannabis constituent, cannabidiol (CBD), enhances the biomechanical properties of healing rat mid-femoral fractures. The maximal load and work-to-failure, but not the stiffness, of femurs from rats given a mixture of CBD and Δ(9) -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for 8 weeks were markedly increased by CBD…
Cannabinoids, the active components of Cannabis sativa, and endogenous cannabinoids mediate their effects through activation of specific cannabinoid receptors known as cannabinoid receptor 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2).
The cannabinoid system has been shown both in vivo and in vitro to be involved in regulating the immune system through its immunomodulatory properties.
Cannabinoids suppress inflammatory response and subsequently attenuate disease symptoms. This property of cannabinoids is mediated through multiple pathways such as induction of apoptosis in activated immune cells, suppression of cytokines and chemokines at inflammatory sites and upregulation of FoxP3+ regulatory T cells.
Cannabinoids have been tested in several experimental models of autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and hepatitis and have been shown to protect the host from the pathogenesis through induction of multiple anti-inflammatory pathways.
Cannabinoids may also be beneficial in certain types of cancers that are triggered by chronic inflammation. In such instances, cannabinoids can either directly inhibit tumor growth or suppress inflammation and tumor angiogenesis.
