CBD oil

Hi is anyone else taking CBD oil, an oil extracted from the cannabis plant but without the THC that causes the high so it is legal.
I am taking it post surgery and while on fec-t chemo.
Because it is post surgery I can’t tell how it is affecting any cancer cells, but I do believe it is helping and I also belive it has helped me to keep a fair bit of my hair.
I am interested to hear of anyone elses experiences and opinions.

I was talking about this in my monthly thread and it has been allowed to be talked about but trying to find anyone else with experiences of it.

Has anyone used it, knows someone who has used it or got any opinions on it at all?

It isn’t addictive Say30dilly. There is more infor on the other CBD oil thread. X

I’ve heard re CBD oil recently as well - a friend’s mother who is receiving treatment in Ireland has been taking it and her cancer has improved dramatically but of course that could be down to a number of factors - apparently it is quite widely recommended over there. I have found it through a reputable high street type site but haven’t tried it as yet.

On reading, it is the THC which causes the high, that can shrink tumors and cause cancer cells to “commit Suicide”, so the CBD is not helpful here, unless you look at CBD that is ingested - when stomach acids are involved, it changes the CBD to THC.  Sadly because of the legalities of this plant, it is difficult to find good research and info.


I bought this cbd oil today on the recommendation of the lady in the health food shop. I was told it would help with inflamation and pain post surgery. I am a bit wary of taking it. I am on letrozol also .i am due for surgery this friday for a grade 1 tumor by wide lumpectomy. Any opinions on the benefit or drawbacks of this oil??


I want to start taking the oil for my breast cancer.

Which one do I buy that’s strong enough for grade 3 triple neg breast cancer?

Are they in colours?

Help xxxx

Hi I am using CBD oil at the moment. I started chemo 6 weeks ago for inflammatory breast cancer. I can feel the lump in my breast has gone from 12cm to approx 4/5cm. I also had inflamed lymph glands under my arm which specialist checked after 1 round of chemo and she couldn’t feel anything. My oncologist advised to carry on doing what I am doing but she could not give medical advise on it. I also believe I still have some hair on my head due to CBD oil. I haven’t suffered with any other chemo symptoms up to now either. :slight_smile:

How to you use it

Hi red Robin have u started useing it yet can you let me know how you get on and how you get it is it a certain bottle or are they all the same thanks
Goodluck xx

I started using CBD oil a month or so ago to counteract joint pain from Taxol/Herceptin and the results were amazing. However I’d bought the oil to use with a dropper and found adjusting the dosage difficult so stopped and have just restarted using capsules so I can adjust the dosage more accurately. It’s expensive but I think it’s worth buying the best you can find/afford.

I also, don’t really believe that CBD oil can help, it just relax the mind for sometime without getting you high.

It’s great to hear that you are finding CBD oil helpful post-surgery and during chemotherapy. While there is limited research on the use of CBD oil for cancer treatment, some studies suggest that it may have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects that could help alleviate some of the symptoms of cancer and its treatments. It’s important to note, however, that CBD oil should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment or advice from a healthcare professional.

It’s also worth mentioning that while CBD oil is legal in many countries, regulations and laws surrounding its use may vary. It’s always a good idea to research the regulations in your area and speak with your healthcare team about any potential interactions with your medications or treatments.

As for hair loss, it’s not clear whether CBD oil has any direct effect on hair growth or preservation. However, some studies suggest that it may have a beneficial effect on skin health and inflammation, which could potentially impact hair follicles. It’s always best to speak with your healthcare team about any concerns related to hair loss or changes in hair during cancer treatment.
