Chiroeco.com published an article on a daughter who believes her father’s life was saved by CBD oil for cancer.
CBD oil for cancer saved her dad’s life, says founder of United Patients Group.
Corrine Malanca says that after her dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer he received chemotherapy. After the treatment, an inoperable brain tumor was found. She then searched the Internet to find the astounding fact that nearly half of cancer patient’s deaths were credited to malnutrition.
She got her dad some coconut and cannabis oil capsules, and 24 hours after his first dose Stan Rutner was out of bed, eating as much as the regular teenager.
Six months later she added a drop of CBD oil to his regime, and nine months later Stan was cancer free. This was unbelievable, as initially Corrine thought she could only help her dad pass on without pain and suffering.
She realized that there is so much information out there, that patients could battle to make sense of it, and wouldn’t know where to start. Corrine and her husband, John, started United Patients Group, to provide information to patients and physicians looking for knowledge on medical cannabis.

CBD oil should never have been illegal
CBD oil adds a whole new layer to the medical cannabis controversy, as the high-cost product falls somewhere between a medicine, a supplement and a prescribed narcotic substance. State and federal law doesn’t agree on its legal status either, industry regulations are non-existent, research is lacking, and dosing is vague.
Still most people agree CBD oil is safe, and there are endless anecdotes on miraculous changes patients experienced in a number of conditions. CBD, or cannabidiol is now known to activate the CB2 receptor that affects the immune system, and is responsible for controlling inflammation processes.
Hemp is low in THC
Hemp is a variety of cannabis with low THC, the psychoactive compound, and is bred to have more CBD. By definition, “industrial hemp” should have a THC content of 0.3% or less. According to the Agricultural Act of 2014 this specification makes the substance legal for research purposes at universities.
Rodney Radtke, chief of the epilepsy and sleep department at Duke Medical Center, says there is a perception that doctors are against medical cannabis, but this is not true. What doctors want is that the efficacy and safety be investigated. We want a medicine not a herbal remedy.
The ambiguous legal status of CBD oil makes it a difficult product to research, but as more and more states opt for legalization of medical and recreational cannabis, funding is starting to flow.
Research projects are growing
As stated by the National Institute of Health, 281 research projects focused on cannabinoids in 2015 accounting for $111 million of which fifteen were specifically related to CBD.
As far as dosage indications are concerned, it depends on whom you ask, and testing is important. Any company worth its salt should be able to provide proof of internal and third party testing. Tests for CBD and THC content as well as impurities such as mold, toxins, heavy metals, fungus, pesticides, and bacteria should be included.
CBD oil for cancer
One would expect different kinds of cancer to be treated differently, and as such, CBD oil might prove beneficial in cancer caused through inflammatory conditions, while cannabis strains containing higher levels of THC might be required to treat other kinds of cancer such as brain tumors, for example. Research results are still awaited. Some anecdotal evidence insists on the whole plant being used to allow patients to benefit from the many beneficial ingredients it is believed to contain.
