Thank you Michael Thompson for your support of PBC’s research into marijuana and multiple myeloma.
When I was a kid in the 70’s my parents thought that marijuana was a gateway drug. Forty years later Newsweek is running an article on the benefits of marijuana for patients undergoing chemotherapy. How far we’ve come.
I’m not taking anything away from the importance of medical marijuana as a palliative therapy for cancer patients when I say that my primary interest in medical marijuana or cannabidiol aka CBD oil is as therapy for a multiple myeloma (MM). One of the top cancer coaching questions I receive on PeopleBeatingCancer.org is how CBD oil can cure or somehow treat cancer.
Is CBD cytotoxic to MM?
While there is some evidence that CBD oil can either enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy, the study linked below leaves many questions unanswered.
For now I believe that MMers must combine non-toxic MM therapies and undergo those evidence-based integrative therapies to manage their myeloma fully.
To learn about evidence-based MM therapies including integrative therapies, nutrition, supplementation, bone health, lifestyle and mind-body therapies scroll down the page, fill out the form and I will reply to you ASAP.

“Moroso says the first three rounds of treatment were more awful than he could have ever imagined. After chemotherapy, he felt so ill and weak that he could barely stand up, and it took him days to rebound. And the prescription drugs just made him feel worse…
A growing number of cancer patients and oncologists view the drug as a viable alternative for managing chemotherapy’s effects, as well as some of the physical and emotional health consequences of cancer, such as bone pain, anxiety and depression…
A 2014 poll conducted by Medscape and WebMD found that more than three-quarters of U.S. physicians think cannabis provides real therapeutic benefits. And those working with cancer patients were the strongest supporters: 82 percent of oncologists agreed that cannabis should be offered as a treatment option…
With the public perception of marijuana changing rapidly, barriers to studying the plant’s medicinal potential are beginning to fall…”
