Cannabinoids in Brain Cancer

Sometimes, science fails to see the tree for the forest. Statistical significance and double-blind trials are important, but so is human experience. Case studies are meaningful.

The doctors — obviously surprised — found out that the patient had begun using a CBD oil 2-3 months earlier.
