An 81-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, managed to shrink his tumors in half after being diagnosed with lung cancer and refusing traditional cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation.

The man, who previously smoked around 18 cigarettes per day but quit 45 years ago, repeatedly refused medical treatments offered by doctors after being diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the lung, opted to take cannabidiol (CBD) oil instead. After three months of almost daily use, scans of the man’s lungs showed that, not only did the tumors reduce in size by half, but the progression of the disease was completely reversed.

The man’s doctors have published the stunning scans and detailed his case in SAGE.

In October 2016, the man, who had previously been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, and prostate cancer (in remission), made an appointment with his primary care doctor after dealing with shortness of breath but no cough for the previous three weeks. An x-ray revealed a shadow in his left lung, which a follow-up CT scan confirmed as a 2.5 × 2.5 cm mass. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of lung adenocarcinoma and mediastinal lymph nodes.

The report highlights the fact that, despite the improvement of targeted therapy in lieu of conventional therapy for lung cancer as well as the availability of new drugs, “lung cancer is associated with a very poor prognosis.” Because “it is not uncommon for many patients to have only a partial response, and relapse during follow-up,” it is not unusual for some patients to decline medical treatment altogether or opt for a natural alternative instead, especially later in life when available treatments tend to have a more detrimental effect on the body.


According to the report:

Prior work has shown that cannabidiol may have anti-neoplastic properties and enhance the immune response to cancer. The data presented here indicate that cannabidiol might have led to a striking response in a patient with lung cancer.”
