Doctors in the UK recently reported the case of an elderly man who’s lung cancer responded to CBD. The man — being 81 years old — decided against chemotherapy or radiation, which would worsen his quality of life without much hope for extending it. Four months after a CT scan, the tumor cross section had shrunk to nearly one tenth of its initial size! The doctors — obviously surprised — found out that the patient had begun using a CBD oil 2-3 months earlier. He took 1.32 mg CBD twice a day for a week, then 6 mg CBD twice a day until the CT scan. He eventually stopped taking CBD oil because it caused mild nausea and had a bad taste. Please note: Project CBD does not endorse opting out of conventional treatment for the sake of using cannabinoids. Combining cannabinoids with cancer treatment seems very promising, but to try experimental therapy while refusing established treatments is dangerous.
