    Cannibus?

    That's pretty much the question. I've got CBD oil right now.

      If you live where you can get legal medical marijuana, you may get good results with it for nausea, sleep aid, relaxation ...

      Cant hurt you. CBD may help against treatment pains.

      To supplement your treatments, use a full extract cannabis oil. If you are on Facebook, look up a group called Cannabis Oil Success Stories.

      Best wishes.

      i was prescribed Marinol for appetite. They had me as failure to thrive. Anyway I thrived & am up 40 lbs. but the marinol actually helps with my arthritis pain (broke hip) & it helps to ease my anxiety. That is as close as I can get. cannabis is not legal in Va yet.

      The Marinol sounds like it would have helped me when I was so sick. I wish my doc would have prescribed this for me. And it comes in pill form, so it would be easy to take.

      I have Marinol and take it sometimes for my appetite. I take a low dose because I don't want to zone out much.

      My palliative doctor had me read a book called "Stoned" by David Casarett MD. I got a lot of vital information out of it about marijuana and how it works in the brain. It made me much more comfortable with taking Marinoll, and explained other options, like various marijuana products. It was also a fairly easy and entertaining read. I felt like I got more solid info out of that book than I have in various online groups.

      I definitely recommend it! Good luck!
