I’ve always regulated my usage to only alleviate my symptoms and episodes so I am sensitive about seeing it as addiction when some family members comment about me being a stoner or addict to cannabis.

  4. Hello Dr. Patel. I have a question for you today about Estrogen Receptor Positive breast cancer, and THC. Many American (US) doctors are going online and citing "anecdotal evidence" saying THC works as a plant estrogen thereby making ER+ hreast cancer WORSE. However, I have found research out of Japan, suggesting exactly the opposite.
    Here's a link to the same paper, from the NiH website:
    I am an ER+ breast cancer survivor, who also has lupus. I have been enjoying
    a much more active and pain-reduced lifestyle with best results from using
    high-THC cannabis oil ("RSO"). However, I feel some trepidation about the fact
    that US doctors are using "anecdotal evidence" online to suggest that I and
    others like me who would find great benefit from THC, are putting ourselves
    in harm's way. The research out of Japan is suggesting the opposite. Further-
    more, I do not get psychoactive results from THC. It is very calming for me.
    CBD, however, makes me feel extreme anxiety and causes panic attacks.
    THC is feeling very like a "miracle cure" for me. But USA doctors are saying
    it could fire up any ER+ cancer cells I may now or someday have. Whose
    work should I trust? The Japanese research, or the US anecdotal evidence?
    To me, the actual Japanese research seems the more sound of the two.
    What do you think? Thank you!
