Cannabis Oil vs Cancer: the 50 Best Articles

Cannabis Oil

Cannabis Oil – image by healthline

Now what constitutes the “best” articles about Cannabis Oil vs Cancer will be very subjective and also depend a lot on which side of the ledger you sit. Medical orthodoxy versus personal experience. Pro-dope social smoker versus anti-marijuana Christian activist. Scott Morrison versus Richard di Natale. The list goes on. What we have aimed to bring here is a mix of high quality articles from almost all reputable sources for your reading enjoyment.


1. Let’s start with something positive. And something very dear to all our hearts – our mums. Sure it might be published on Ladbible – the print version of that Blokesworld TV show, but show me a lad who doesn’t love his mum and I’ll show you a bloke who is likely to get cancer from being a miserable git. Anyway Mum Who Took Illegal Cannabis Oil To Battle Terminal Cancer Given The All-Clear is a promising way to start on this subject.

2. Now let’s not muck around and waste time – it’s all very well to read positive articles, but what can a person do about it, especially Australian DIY types who want to hurry up and get on with the purported healing benefits of cannabis oil, also often called CBD oil, in the fight against cancer. So practical folks will love to read about how to make a cannabis oil recipe titled This Is The Cannabis Oil Recipe Rick Simpson Used To Heal His Cancer And Recommends To Others

3. A cancer survivor native from British Columbia has a story that most people cannot imagine. In May 2007, the patient had a heart attack and afterward a double bypass surgery. As a result of the surgery, she experienced chronic pain from a maligned sternum and post-sternotomy neuralgia syndrome. The patient constantly took pain killers to try to ease the pain, but nothing seemed to work. Fast forward four years, the cancer patient was diagnosed with anal canal cancer and was coping with two spots of skin cancer on her collar bone. You may argue that the article How Cannabis Oil Helps With Cancer Treatment and Kills Cancer Cells comes from one of the most biased sources possible, from the website CBD International who state this on their website: CBD International was created by and for patients who believe that there has to be more than, “We’ve done all we can do.” We strive to meet the needs of all individuals who require safe, affordable access to high-quality cannabis oil or marijuana oil cancer treatments. We are committed to improving our members’ well-being and their standard of living with effective pain management.

4. Next we hear from a more detached source, the Australian government website who give us some choice heads-up on the subject: Cannabis and cannabinoids are derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Cannabis, also known as marijuana (and colloquially as grass, pot, weed, hash etc.), is made from the dried flowers and leaves of the Cannabis sativa plant. Cannabinoids are chemicals which act upon cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2 in the body. On the page Cannabis for Medical Purposes they eventually state “there are currently a number of trials underway in Australia reviewing the potential benefits of cannabis and its efficacy for use across different medical indications”. We suggest keeping keeping an eye on that page to see if they eventually indicate grander conclusions which support the pro-medical-pot lobby.

5. This website then links to the TGA page on medical cannabis which then links to many other valuable pages and sources about medical cannabis, so this will keep anti-cancer researchers and general enthusiasts occupied for hours. Great to see such professional information readily available for laypeople.

6. Meanwhile Julie, age 65, has been taking two drops a night of a cannabinoid oil and a paste with a low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) dose under her tongue in the morning. She is one of a growing number of senior Australians who are buying homemade medicinal cannabis products for pain relief, despite it being early days in scientific research to support the drug’s effectiveness. While there is a legal process for using medicinal cannabis, it can only be prescribed by a medical practitioner and this is done on a case-by-case basis. This ABC News article about elderly people breaking the law to use medicinal cannabis for the aches and pains of ageing is about cannabis oil for pain management in the elderly, but it does mention that Julie had cancer previously. Hmmm we suspect a bit of subtext on this one.

7. In a very clickbait-friendly article Mamamia are also greatly contributing to the medical marijuana subject with plenty of further information including this quote: “With the medical products, they’re standardised – they only use a certain part of the plant and extract the oil in a certain way, so you get a compound that’s reproducible and regulated. It will be the same every time you buy it. You don’t get that when buying medicinal cannabis oil on the black market, decriminalising CBD oil will give patients consistency, and doctors more confidence in prescribing it.” For their article about Cannabis oil and CBD oil in Australia: Everything you need to know, click here.


8. Populist media is very much getting in on the act now, with the UK’s Daily Star knowing how to personalise a universal story with this irresistible article called Man beats 12 brain tumours and is now cancer free after taking cannabis oil where he declares: “Now I’m essentially cancer free in less than a year.”

9. Medical News Today published an article about CBD for Cancer: Everything you need to know. Here, you will know the difference between THC tetrahydrocannabinol and CBD cannabidiol and which compound will be beneficial in treating cancer and other health ailments. It also discusses the positive – which is CBD for cancer treatment and the negative – side effects of CBD.

10. CBD for Cancer: Can It Help? Maybe, According to Research. This article from HealthLine cited some studies done in the past about CBD and cancer. There are links to the research if you feel like reading some medical stuff. Here you will find some solid evidence supporting the use of cannabinoids in reducing the tumor growth in animals. CBD may also enhance the effectivity of some cancer treatments and act as a complementary cancer treatment.

11. Even Harvard Medical School (Harvard Health Publishing) runs an article about Cannabidiol (CBD) — what we know and what we don’t. Read what the experts think about CBD and how it alleviates chronic pain particularly those associated with cancer. Keep reading because the comments section is more informative. Here the physician author interacts with real people. You’ll also find some other experts giving their honest opinion and recommendations.


12. Want to know what the American government wants to say about cannabis? Here’s an article from the National Institutes of Health in America – National Cancer Institute. The article is titled Cannabis and Cannabinoids (PDQ®)–Health Professional Version. This is a health information summary for health professionals that provides comprehensive, peer-reviewed evidence-based information about the use of Cannabis and cannabinoids in the treatment of people with cancer. It is intended as a resource to inform and assist clinicians who care for cancer patients however, it does not provide formal guidelines or recommendations for making health care decisions.

13. If you like reading serious medical stuff, here’s something from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Cannabinoids in cancer treatment: Therapeutic potential and legislation. You will know how the ancient people use cannabis in the past to cure different health issues and how people use it throughout the years. This study also shows the molecular basis for cannabinoid treatment for cancer and the role of the endocannabinoid system in cancer. Here you will find the international and national legal basis for the use of cannabinoids.

14. Forward-thinking countries have recognized the healing benefits of cannabis. The most recent legislation of medicinal and recreational marijuana legalization was in Canada in October 2018. The Onco’Zine of the International Oncology Network published an article about how cannabis oil works to kill cancer. This article discusses how CBD oil helps n apoptosis or natural process in the body where the cells are destroyed as part of a particular organism. CBS works by impairing cancer development through inhibiting reproduction, metastasis, and tumor angiogenesis.


15. CBD oil (cannabidiol) is everywhere these days. Once only available at novelty or vitamin shops, it’s now also at your local grocery store, pharmacy or even yoga studio. It comes in many forms: oils, cream, and patches. Some producers extract CBD oil and add it to foods to create edible products. What is CBD oil and how it affects cancer patients? Read: CBD oil and cancer: 9 things to know

16. What to know what Cancer.Org has to say about Cannabis? Read their Marijuana and Cancer article. Different compounds in marijuana have different actions in the human body. For example, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) seems to cause the “high” reported by marijuana users, and also can help relieve pain and nausea, reduce inflammation, and can act as an antioxidant. Cannabidiol (CBD) can help treat seizures, can reduce anxiety and paranoia, and can counteract the “high” caused by THC. A number of small studies of smoked marijuana found that it can be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy. A few studies have found that inhaled (smoked or vaporized) marijuana can be a helpful treatment of neuropathic pain (pain caused by damaged nerves). Smoked marijuana has also helped improve food intake in HIV patients according to some studies.

17. Does CBD help cancer? The CBD Awareness Project is a must-read if you want to know more about CBD. It’s like a CBD 101 written in layman’s term. It answers what is CBD. The difference between CBD and THC. The different benefits of CBD for cancer:

  1. CBD provides chronic pain relief
  2. CBD lessens chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
  3. CBD relieves anxiety and sleep problems
  4. CBD may slow or suppress tumor growth
  5. CBD linked to increased survival rates for pancreatic cancer

And, it also teaches the different methods to use CBD oil 1. Inhalation 2. Sublingual 3. Topical application 4. Oral ingestion. The article also provides the CBD Dosage Guide which is very important to those who are considering using this alternative treatment for cancer.



18. Cannabinoids are widely used in the management of pain, nausea, and cachexia in cancer patients. However, there has been no objective clinical evidence of any anticancer activity yet. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of pharmaceutical-grade synthetic cannabidiol on a range of cancer patients. Read the Report of Objective Clinical Responses of Cancer Patients to Pharmaceutical-grade Synthetic Cannabidiol and learn that pharmaceutical-grade synthetic cannabidiol is a candidate for treating breast cancer and glioma patients.

19. Even Cancer support groups like the MacMillan Cancer Support acknowledges what cannabis can do to cancer patients. Most of the scientific research has been done in a laboratory. Scientists have found that different cannabinoids can:

  • cause a cell to die
  • stop cells from dividing
  • stop cells from developing new blood vessels.

there is some evidence that the chemicals in cannabis might help with symptoms such as nausea and pain. For example, some drugs that have been developed using the chemicals in cannabis have been effective in treating sickness caused by chemotherapy or improving a person’s appetite.

20. Here’s one article from a self-confessed cannabis enthusiast, Bojana Petkovic. This is a well-researched article about CBD oil and cancer. She discusses the different cancer types and how CBD oil can help. Let’s take a look. CBD oil for skin cancer – one of the most famous CBD oil cancer testimonials was given by an ex skin cancer patient Rick Simpson, whose diagnose was basal cell carcinoma. Simpson used to put the oil on bandages and cover the cancer spots for 4 days, after which the spots “magically” disappeared.

CBD and breast cancer – One encouraging example of how to use CBD oil for breast cancer is the case of Dee Mani, who was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer. Knowing that her own sister had passed away while undergoing chemotherapy, Dee decided to take cannabis oil and change her lifestyle. She was regularly taking the oil for five months, and after that, doctors declared she was in good health.

These were just some of the cancer types and some testimonials. Read on, there’s oil lung cancer treatment, CBD oil and prostate cancer, CBD oil and pancreatic cancer, CBD oil bone cancer treatment, CBD oil for liver cancer, and how to use CBD oil for colon cancer.


21. The Benefits of Cannabis Oil for Lung Cancer article from Healthline enumerates the different types of cannabis oil. They said there are four types of cannabis oil namely: CBD oil which is non-psychoactive cannabis product. 2. Hemp-derived oil with no THC 3. Marijuana-derived oil is higher in THC with psychoactive effects and 4. Rick Simpson oil with the highest levels of THC. This article just gives some general benefits of cannabis oil for lung cancer but not so definitive. There are also some ways how to use it and the side effects of using cannabis oil products.

22. How to get medicinal cannabis. Access to medicinal cannabis involves a much more complicated process than with most other medicines. A doctor must either be an ‘Authorised Prescriber’ or be prepared to make an application on behalf of their patient through the TGA ‘Special Access Scheme’.

How to apply for medicinal cannabis. The medical practitioner has two ways of applying for unregistered medicines:

  1. Special Access Scheme (SAS) To source a drug for a single patient, the doctor can use the Special Access Scheme.
  1. Authorised Prescriber (AP) The doctor can apply to the TGA to become an Authorised Prescriber (AP), allowing the doctor to prescribe an unregistered medicine to a whole class of patients.

23. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center published an article entitled What is CBD Oil, and Can It Help People with Cancer? This article is like an interview with two doctors where they ask questions and the two doctors answer. Some of the questions include:

  • What is CBD oil?
  • How can people with cancer use CBD oil?
  • What do we know about how CBD oil works?
  • Does CBD oil have psychoactive properties, like marijuana? Is it a sedative?
  • What do we know about CBD oil’s ability to fight or prevent cancer?
  • Where can people get CBD oil?

24. Eric Geisterfer has done volunteer background research for Project CBD. His article People Who Beat Cancer Using Cannabis Oil Only compiled different anecdotal evidence from people who used cannabis oil to treat different medical conditions. At first, he explained why cannabis works as a medicine. He cites different studies performed on how cannabis oil fights cancer.

1) Antiproliferative — It prevents cancer cells from reproducing.

2) Antiangiogenic — It prevents the formation of new blood vessels needed by the tumor to grow.

3) Antimetastatic — It prevents cancer from spreading to other organs.

4) Apoptotic — It induces the cancerous cell to commit suicide.

There’s even a video about doctors’ findings on cannabis and cancer. Links to more videos, articles and testimonials from different people who benefited from cannabis oil.

25. High hopes Striking scans show lung cancer patient’s tumours ‘HALVED in size after daily cannabis oil treatment’. The man from Stoke-on-Trent refused chemo and other treatments to prolong his life. AN EX-smoker who shunned traditional cancer treatment saw his tumours shrink – months after taking CBD oil each day. Instead he opted to use cannabidiol (CBD) oil each day for two months.

Now, doctors at the Royal Stoke University Hospital have shared “striking” scans showing his tumours almost halved in size, stopping the disease in its tracks. They note in a medical case report: “CBD oil may have had a role in the striking response.”

26. Looking for Celebrity Diagnosis? Read Olivia Newton-John’s Stage 4 Cancer Cannabis Management – The singer and actress updates fans on her battle. Originally the actress treated her pain with morphine, Newton-John was able to wean herself off the morphine by using marijuana, primarily cannabis oil. She claims it also is helping her with anxiety and sleep. Her husband, John Easterling, grows many of the herbs and marijuana in a greenhouse in the backyard of their California home. Olivia says: “I really believe cannabis has made a huge difference. If I don’t take the drops, I can feel the pain, so I know it’s working.”


27. If you’re considering taking cannabis to treat any medical condition, this article from is a must-read. How To Finding Your CBD Dose explores the dosage you should take for a specific medical condition. What works for patient A might not work for patient B. Some people have to take higher or lower CBD dosages before attaining the same result as others. Although there is a recommended dosage for each condition they recommend to take a ‘trial and error’ method. This allows you to start with the COR standard and regulate your CBD dosage with respect to changes in symptom relief.

28. Fighting Post-Cancer Pain: CBD Worked for Me. One cancer survivor explores the use of CBD products and shares how it helped manage her post-cancer pain. “After a month of using both products, my overall physical health has improved. I’ve finally found the right combination of CBG and CBD that works for me. Before starting the products, controlling bodily pain was a challenge. I’d tried over the counter anti-inflammatory medication but it didn’t help. With the cannabinoids, I could definitely tell the difference. I was surprised at how quickly I saw the benefits appear. The results I’ve received since using these tinctures have been amazing. I will continue to use the CBG and CBD products because of the beneficial results I’ve experienced. I will give a positive report to my oncologist at my visit next month.”

29. CBD oil is not only good for humans, but it’s also good for dogs with cancer. Cancer is a word you never want to hear from your doctor or veterinarian, and if your dog does happen to face this battle there is a way to help them out. CBD or cannabidiol is a compound that has positive side effects that can help out our furry friends during this hard time facing cancer. Medical marijuana is very popular right now due to the benefits, and these benefits come from the CBD compound in the plant. When you extract this CBD, it becomes a non-psychoactive version with no THC that is safe for pets. With all of the benefits of medical marijuana, while being a non-toxic substance for dogs, CBD can be miraculous during this period of fighting cancer.

32. reports that Parents gave their 6-month-old son CBD oil while he was going through chemo. They say ‘a drop the size of a grain of rice’ stopped his vomiting almost instantly.

When Danielle and Brian Dwyer’s son Waldo, was six months old, he was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer that required chemotherapy. After starting chemo, Waldo couldn’t sleep, had trouble eating and going to the bathroom, and kept vomiting. In search of a solution, the Philadelphia-based family went to California to get CBD oil for Waldo, which was illegal in their home state at the time.

“We gave him a drop the size of a grain of rice and he was eating, laughing, going to the bathroom again,” Brian Dwyer said of the cannabis oil’s effects on his son. “Within the first hour of giving it to him, he stopped throwing up.” Now five years old, Waldo is tumor-free. His vision, which was damaged during treatment, is being corrected. He wears glasses that his mom says make him look “super cute.”

35. Rick Simpson Oil: Cancer Cure or Cannabis Con? Named after the man who supposedly used the oil to cure his own skin cancer, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) has quickly become one of the most discussed and praised “cancer treatments” of modern times, all without a single prescription from a licensed doctor.  Type the term into a social media app and one can soon find hundreds of posts by those who’ve halted their chemotherapy and switched to the cannabis oil, or shunned radiotherapy to manage their brain tumor “naturally.” But there is now a growing danger that these followers could be shunning the proven clinical treatments they desperately need and discrediting the still-nascent field of cannabis science.

Right now, as modern oncological science understands it, the best cancer treatments available are still those that an authorized doctor recommends. Of course, cannabis still remains a potent pain-relieving option for those undergoing chemotherapy, but its potential as a cancer treatment is still just that: a potential. “I’ve always urged people who have so-called ‘cured their cancer’ using these products to use our National Cancer Institute and its best-case scenario initiative, where people can submit to the NCI reports in success in treating cancer with other than conventional means. And then our government might even consider doing research on those products.


36. Cannabis and cannabinoids for medical purposes. Medical cannabis is legal in Canada, and recreational cannabis is legalized as of October 2018. The Canadian government allows seriously ill people access to cannabis for medical reasons. This is commonly called medical cannabis.

People who want to use cannabis for medical purposes must get a medical document (like a prescription) from a doctor or nurse practitioner. With this document, they can purchase cannabis for medical purposes through licensed producers in Canada. It comes in many forms including dried cannabis, cannabis oil, or fresh cannabis buds or leaves that can be smoked, vaporized, or eaten in food

Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations give people with cancer the option to use cannabis for medical purposes to help manage their symptoms and side effects. Talk to your healthcare team about the benefits and risks of using medical cannabis. They can help you decide if it is right for you.

37. CBD Oil Cancer Dosage. This article advises potential users to review the list of drugs that interact with CBD before using CBD products. A great advantage of medical marijuana and CBD Dosages over conventional cancer therapies is that it usually doesn’t harm healthy cells therefore not lowering the patient’s quality of life. Studies have even proved that medical marijuana is as effective and also potentiates the effects of conventional cancer therapies.

Although dosing with CBD has not been totally accepted as an alternative in the treatment options, there have been a few pieces of research that have yielded positive results to prove the therapeutic abilities of CBD for cancer.

38. Mum with terminal cancer baffles doctors by ‘treating herself with cannabis oil.’ A mum who was given weeks to live after she shunned chemotherapy has stunned doctors by ‘treating her cancer’ – with illegal super-strength cannabis and Manuka honey. Susan Dhillon, 51, a mum-of-three, was diagnosed with inoperable stage four cancer of the mouth, nose and lower skull in June 2018.

She started taking a near-pure form of illegal cannabis tablets which her friend makes at home, by growing her own cannabis plants and using oil to make tablets. Sue, a grandmother-of-one, then buys the drug from her friend at a cost price of around £16 a day. After five months of taking a tablet a day, doctors were shocked to discover some of the tumours had disappeared, and others had stopped growing or shrunk altogether. A letter from her ‘pleasantly surprised’ consultant confirms the regression and states: ‘I can only conclude that Mrs. Dhillon appears to have gained significant benefit from the Manuka honey and Cannabis oil treatment’


39. CBD OIL FOR CANCER PATIENTS. Recent studies have shown that using CBD along with other cannabinoids such as THC slows the growth, or even kills certain kinds of cancer cells that researchers had growing in a science lab. Studies of animals with cancerous cells also suggest that certain properties of medical marijuana could slow the growth of cancer cells and keep it from spreading quickly.

The National Cancer Institute states that cannabinoids such as CBD and THC are useful in treating the side effects of cancer, and can ease the pain of some common cancer treatments like chemotherapy. They also state that the effects of medical cannabis could include anti-inflammatory activity, blocking cell growth, preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors, and aiding in antiviral activity. Some people prefer using a CBD vaporizer or inhaler because it delivers the CBD into the system very effectively. Other ways to take CBD oil include capsules, mouth strips, and edibles like gummies or chocolates. If it’s hard for the patient to ingest the CBD oil, another option is to apply it topically using a lotion, cream, balm, or patch. It all depends on what the patient can handle, and the way in which the CBD treatment is most effective for them.

40. Looking for CBD Oil reviews on the web? Ten Best CBD Oils for Cancer. The following list is a compilation of the best CBD oils for cancer. They have been chosen based on their high-quality and potency, their extraction methods, company philosophy, and the soil in which the hemp has been grown.  They are all third-party tested CBD products with clear therapeutic benefits.

41. With pancreatic cancer, what Stephen needs is legalised cannabis. Stephen first heard about the reported pain relief benefits of medical marijuana and CBD oil for cancer patients a year into his treatment. When he asked his doctors about applying for a medical marijuana card, their reluctance confused him. Still, he persisted and when he started using both, he found they controlled his symptoms as well or, in some cases, better than opioids. He also found out that no insurance company covers their high costs. “I think it’s funny,” Stephen remarks, “that in America you’re able to buy alcohol, which is known to cause all these problems, but CBD oil and medical marijuana are more regulated and looked down upon. It’s sad because they’ve definitely helped me immensely.”


42. CBD for cancer: Everything you need to know from Medical News Today The majority of the evidence available suggests that CBD and cannabis therapies may complement cancer treatment. CBD may help people with cancer by stimulating appetite, pain relief, nausea. While CBD does indeed appear to be a beneficial compound for many cancer symptoms, no scientific research suggests that CBD can be an effective cancer treatment. Cannabinoids and cannabis itself may have their place as a complementary treatment in some cases, for example, for people who need help managing chronic pain and nausea. People should always talk to a doctor before using CBD or any other compound during cancer treatment to ensure that it will not react with any of the medications that they are taking.

43. Cannabis Compound May Stop Metastatic Breast Cancer, A non-toxic, non-psychoactive compound in marijuana may block the progress of metastatic breast cancer, according to a new study by researchers in California.

“This is a new way to treat a patient that is not toxic like chemotherapy or radiotherapy. It is a new approach for metastatic cancer,” said lead researcher Sean D. McAllister, an associate scientist at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute in San Francisco.

Then, two years ago, McAllister — an expert on cannabinoids — and Desprez, a cancer researcher, started to work together. Through their combined forces “what we found is actually what I was looking for the past 12 years,” Desprez said. Further study is needed before CBD can be conclusively identified as a treatment option, McAllister and Desprez said. “We need to involve a team of physicians because we are bench [basic] scientists,” McAllister said.

44. How Does CBD Oil Help People With Cancer? According to those who have used CBD to cope with cancer, the two best options are vaping (for quick relief) or tincture. Because studies have shown that CBD may actually kill some cancer cells, the goal is to get it into your system and keep a steady level. This can be achieved both through oral tinctures and vape. If you do not vape or are not interested in vaping, then your choice is oral tincture. Some suggest a two-pronged approach for the best results, using both methods together, as they each have some distinct benefits.

CBD has been found to kill cancerous cells and inhibit the spread of lung cancer, another form of the disease that is notoriously difficult to treat. This is just a sample of the most dangerous types of cancer that CBD can treat. Research has found it to be effective across the board and is a potential treatment for every kind of cancer.


45. Prescribing medicinal cannabis. Any registered medical practitioner in Queensland can prescribe medicinal cannabis for any patient with any condition if they believe it is clinically appropriate and has obtained the required Commonwealth and/or state approvals. Queensland doctors can prescribe Schedule 4 – cannabidiol (CBD) only products without a Queensland approval. Doctors who hold a specialist registration (including specialist general practitioners) can also prescribe Schedule 8 – products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) without a Queensland approval.

46. Cannabis oil ‘cures’ woman’s cancer without chemotherapy or radiation “I cured cancer. Knowing what I know now, I can’t be quiet,” she said. “This is huge.” After avoiding regular pap smears in her younger years, Shona discovered she had second stage cervical cancer in October 2013. The carer provided ongoing support and education around the stigma of cannabis, as well as supplied the oil for her.

Every six weeks and she would have a blood test to monitor cancer. Eight months later in September 2014, she received clean results, which she puts down to using “oil supplied freely”. However, after having a fallout with her supplier and coming off the cannabis oil treatment, large lumps “the size of my fist” started to appear in her left breast within four months. She eventually found another supplier and “within two weeks of her sending me a coconut oil infusion those lumps were gone”. “The realisation was that the only way I was going to get a reliable source for this was to do it myself,” she said. Shona now makes cannabis oil to heal cancer, balms and a spray for pain, such as arthritis.

47. CBD and CBD Oil: What Is It and Does It Really Work? The popularity of medical marijuana is soaring, and among the numerous products consumers are seeking are CBD, or cannabis oils. A wealth of marketing material, blogs, and anecdotes claim that CBD oils can cure whatever ails you, even cancer. But the limited research doesn’t suggest that cannabis oil should take the place of conventional medication, except for in two very rare forms of epilepsy (and even then, it’s recommended only as a last-resort treatment). And, experts caution that because CBD oil and other cannabis-based products are not regulated or tested for safety by the government or any third-party agency, it’s difficult for consumers to know exactly what they’re getting.


48. Patient Access to Medicinal Cannabis in South Australia. Patients in South Australia can access medicinal cannabis medicines as a result of federal legislative changes which came into effect in November 2016 and the development of a patient access pathway.

Under the pathway, patients in South Australia can access medicinal cannabis on prescription from their authorised medical practitioner and dispense by a pharmacist.  The decision to consider medicinal cannabis as a treatment option is a matter for discussion between a medical practitioner and their patient, enabling consideration of the patient’s clinical information and the safety and efficacy of medicinal cannabis in the particular condition to be treated.
