Default Using Cannabis with Cancer Treatment.

Hello all,

I joined this forum several months ago now, I was full of excitement at the time having just brought my first house, beaten cancer and eager to start my journey searching though MNS haze hybrids.

I developed an infection shortly after the operation, it developed into a painful untreatable condition that has stopped me returning to my previous line of work, Im financial broke but I wasnt going to let that get me down, slowly I was saving the money to set myself up with a proper grow room.

A few months ago after having a routine CT scan I was called into the hospital to see my oncologist, the cancer had returned in my abdominal lymph nodes.

My oncologist made a plan and decided on an aggressive chemotherapy treatment, I'm young so my body can handle it and it had a 90% chance to cure my cancer she said.

I completed my first course of 4 chemotherapy courses about 2 weeks ago, they had to stop one of my chemotherapy drugs day 1 as it almost killed me but they said it wouldnt matter to my overall treatment they would just give me an extra course.

1 week ago I went in for a blood test before starting my 2nd course, again I was called into the oncologist's office, the chemotherapy had done nothing my cancer had not responded and infact progressed.

The oncologist's explained that it was rare for such strong chemotherapy treatment to have no effect but it can happen, so she decided to stop the chemotherapy treatment as she had already given me the strongest treatment possible and refered me for radio therapy.

That's my story so far, I've lost all my hair, I've been though a lot of pain, I've lost some of my hearing, I've lost all my financial security and all for nothing so far, I have a wife, daughter and mortgage to support.

I feel cheated by my goverment, cannabis is still illegal here there is no easy option for me to access quality cannabis for use along side traditional treatments like chemotherapy and radio therapy.

So I'm hoping for some advice, I have the equipment from previous grows I've done over the years, it's not pretty, I don't have a lot of space and my radio therapy treatment is in another city so I may have to stay away from home for 3 weeks at a time but it's the option I have to take to get access to quality meds.

I'll be working in about 3 sqaure feet of space with a head room of 4 feet, I've mostly worked with DWC hydroponics in the past but I'm not sure how I could work that when it's possible I could be away 3 weeks at a time and as I said weed is still illegal here I can't exactly ask the neighbour to pop over and water my plants if I went dirt or coco.

Any suggestions regarding THC to CBD ratio etc for my situation ? I only have The Doors, Nevilles Haze and NHx Mango from MNS, I have a bunch of other random strains kicking around from other seed banks.

Any advice would be appreciated, sorry for the long story.

Hi Dkeppel,
Sorry to hear about your situation. Stay strong brother.
I can't advise on the best strains to grow thc/cbd ratio for cancer treatment. Hopefully other members can help out on that one.
But if you are going to be leaving your grow for weeks at a time, I would advocate using Auto pots. I am currently growing The Doors and Ortega in Organic Soil and had to go away for 2 weeks.
I set them up in Auto pot system while away. So easy you just fill up the resovirour with rain water and the auto pot valve regulates the flow of water .
Google Auto pot systems and you should find what you need at a fair price.
This will allow you to leave your grow knowing it's self watering.
I have put up a pictorial in the strain base.
The Doors of perception
You can see how my Doors and Ortega grew in Auto pots while I was away for 2 weeks.
I hope this helps.
A21

Thanks A21, I'll check out those auto pots, I've seen your grow and it looks like it's going well.

I recieved some very good news today, my case was reviewed by the medical board and the chemotherapy did infact have an effect on my tumor, there unsure why my blood markers increased but the tumor is shrinking.

I don't need to be away from home for weeks at a time anymore, down side is I'll have to continue chemotherapy which has all the terrible side effect but I'm very relieved it is having an effect and my first course wasn't all for nothing.

Funny you should mention The Doors, I pulled my straw out of the freezer last night, definitely the strain I've had my heart set on growing the most.
