I have a friend/employee who has been battling breast cancer at Moffitt for the last 3 years. Moffitt told her yesterday that they are out of options, there is nothing more they can do. Her Husband is obviously desperate and called me a few minutes ago with all of this and also asks if I know anything about some product called Phoenix Tears? Anyone know anything about this stuff?

It's all over the internet. It is hemp oil but sounds more like a scam.

I see but I can't find anything on say Quackwatch, etc sites. Certainly I'm extremely doubtful but as her Husband is saying, they have nothing to loose at this point assuming it's not harmful. That's why I'm posting here to see if anyone has any info on this oil.

Hi David,

I did a quick google search and #1 hit shows a relationship of this to Rick Simpson. If this is in fact a credible relationship then all is good as he is a fully legit medican (medical cannabis) expert.

He is one of the folks credited with an extraction process for creating concentrates. Search on his name and oil and you get pages.

I am sorry to hear about the prescription of the palliative route for your friend. Even being the staunch supporter of medican use it is not possible to indicate this for anything curative.

For easing pain, anxiety, insomnia, improving appetite, etc. there is only potential upside for trying. There are two types of chemicals: THC and CBD. One offers the psycho effects and the other helps easing the nasty symptoms.

Good luck

I know a man in Las Vegas who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, and swears by phoenix tears. He claims it arrested his symptoms and is a big evangelist for it.

There is some science about cannabinoids working against some cancers.

The plural of anecdote is not data of course, and your mileage may vary. But if your friend is out of options, it can't hurt to try.
