Many people either use a high THC (Rick Simpson Oil) or a high CBD product when dealing with cancer. Anecdotally Rick Simpson healed his skin cancer using high doses of THC (RSO). Life style usually pushes a patient to choose one method over another.
For instance, if a patient has a family to care for and a job where they cannot have an altered mental status they will choose to use a high CBD product like a CBD:THC ratio of 20:1 (AC/DC strain in flower) twice daily every day. High CBD has been shown to decrease tumor size in some tumors. Patients’ that do not have to drive or maintain heavy responsibilities at home may choose a high THC product like (RSO).
The side effects of RSO can be intolerable for some as you are encouraged to finish a 60g tube of RSO in 3 months which contains very potent THC. Side effects of RSO may be needing to sleep more, or even not feel your legs at times…although side effects lesson over time as you build tolerance.
The cannabis plant has many natural compounds including these tumor inhibiting derivatives such as: THC, CBD, CBG, CBC, THCA, and CBDA. So adding any of these to your cannabis regimen may be helpful in fighting cancer. Terpenes such as caryophyllene and limonene have been shown to potentially inhibit tumor cells as well. Various amounts of caryophyllene have been found in strains such as Gorilla Glue. Hope this is helpful!
