Cancer, Anxiety, Pain, Depression & Cannabis vs Opioids

"I am trying to help my friend who has Stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma that has spread to the sinus/brain/frontal bone areas. She has had double immunotherapy and is currently taking radiation to the head/brain. She has had a life of pain, bipolar depression, & anxiety before the cancer – and she hardly sleeps. Any ideas of where to start since we’d be newbies at all of this? "


Hello! It sounds like your friend has a fairly complex medical history which would be best served with an individualized consultation from one of the physicians here at hellomd.com. You can request a consultation by clicking on the "Talk to a Doctor" tab at the top of the page. Until then, you could start by experimenting with CBD. It’s non-psychoactive with minimal side effects and is good for beginners. Hope this helps some! Best of luck.
