If you have cancer, your healthcare team has probably created a plan with treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy. These are all conventional ways to treat cancer. Many other kinds of therapies, called complementary therapies, can support conventional cancer treatment.

Have you or your loved one considered trying or tried a complementary therapy? If so join the conversation.

I tried CBD oil for sleep.  Worked OK, but I did feel woozy the next day too, and I fell a couple of times. So for me, a good 40 min walk every day works. But I know what you are saying about depression, breastcancer61, and I have found out through Inspire Health here in Vancouver, that there is a CBT program run by Family Physicians in BC for group therapy. (www.divisionsbc.ca/vancouver/CBTskillsgroup). If you are in BC, this might be an option?

As I was checking out some messages I missed, I noticed the CBD thing. Excuse me while I jump in and hopefully add something to the discussion.

CBD is not really intended as a sleep aid. In fact, it may hinder sleep. I also noted that comment about falling and feeling woozy. That 'statement' would suggest that the quantity consumed was excessive, or that the patient / end user did not work their way up to a planned dosage to treat an ailment or condition.

CBD also tends to alter some peoples moods. It is NOT an uplifting component of the medical applications.

How do I know ?

Because I'm a legal, ongoing, medical cannabis user.

I would encourage a potential  patient to do some reading and research about medical cannabis.  There is some real help out there.
YouTube is loaded with info.

I hope you find some relief. It sure helps manage our issues and lives.
