His wife tripped on a loose cord in a thrift shop and a 150 pound glass case fell on top of her breaking both hips and one wrist. After she came home from the hospital, her husband was responsible for her but she could not even get up to go the the bathroom and was in extreme pain. Needless to say, he was desperate to help her recover but was suffering health issues of his own...and was exhausted.
I got a call just over a week ago asking for me to bake him/her some cannabis cookies so they could try to sleep...she kept him up at night with her pain and he would already be visiting the bathroom four to five times a night anyway with the prostate issue.
He ate the cookies, but I told him he should not be eating sugar because it is a fact that the cancer LOVES sugar. So I offered to make suppositories:eek: for him and he jumped at the offer.
First night after using 4 size "00" capsules during the day (frozen and then taken out of the capsule) and inserted, he said "I cant explain in words how I feel but something BIG is happening to me". He is a 40 year cannabis user but this was "different"...he (claimed) that he was not stoned...but felt like there was something major going on "down there". His wife now eats two or three cookies (I can only handle a half of one) and sleeps like a baby and is happy once again.
Next night, he only got up ONCE to the bathroom. It has been staying that way, but he has only been using them for a week now. I am making the next 40 capsules now so he does not run out. What a brave man (with nothing to lose).
He said that the cannabis oil does not burn him or cause any discomfort "down there"...he is thrilled. He tried swallowing a capsule the first day, but suffered extreme nausea for several hours...which convinced him to go the suppository route...he said he had been thinking of suppositories because of his stomach, before I had even offered.
I called to check on him on day three and he sounded like a different person...full of energy, upbeat, and not emotionally drained as before.
I will update you in three weeks, as he has a doctor's appointment then...perhaps his cancer markers will have dropped a bit since the bio-availability is so MUCH greater this way than orally.
I used two ounces of "top shelf bud" per two Tablespoons of coconut oil and a 1/4 teaspoon lecithin granuals. I "washed" the bud (after decarbing) with 1 cup (heated) Everclear (190) proof for 1 minute...and then strained it through a 150 micron bag...In a pyrex pie plate, I added this to the 2 T. coconut oil. I then processed it by evaporation on a hot plate set on warm (took a little over 1 hour)...I then added the lecithin granuals, covered the plate with foil and then put it in the freezer for 6 hours. I then let it thaw to room temp and then baked it (still covered) at 200 degrees for 1 hour. I repeated this one more time (the baking/freezing). Then I filled 40 capsules and froze them so they could be solid to handle.
If this works for him, I will start treatment on myself...I have Leukemia and have been wanting to do this, but I work full time and was afraid of the effects from going either "route". If I have my math correct...the greater bio-availability from going rectally vs. orally would mean that we can use much much less...OR get cured much much sooner and then go on "maintanance"!
If anyone has any comments, questions, or advice...please feel free to reply...this is new territory for us.
