    I personally think it’s very irresponsible. The fact that he’s already receiving cancer Meds from a TRAINED DOCTOR doesn’t change my opinion at all. He’s having a bad reaction to SOMETHING which is potentially causing psychosis. Personally I wouldn’t take advice from either a pharmacist or a forum in this instance.

    Who’s the dick?

    I'm not saying that these people have all the answers. But be open minded.

    And..you'll find I advised him to stop the canna meds for a week so we can tell if it is side effect from the morphine or chemo..:headbang:

    He is off canna now or was when i visited on weds. 3 days off. I have since learned that the med people from the Cancer Clinic are going to recommend he reduce the opioids so he can enjoy some Canna. I'm going to recommend that they buy some legit medical CBD flower product and I will create some rosin for him I think that might be good to counteract The Psychotic effect of THC as recommended by @skunkpharm, who I seriously doubt very much is a dick. My friends both have become very good friends with the pharma guy at the cancer clinic in Calgary and that person is visiting them at their home, so its not all just medical related for them. They all like each other which is nice to see.

    The person calling me a dick i wont dialog with. Not going to be helpful or productive. I thougjt people like that dont exist on afn. Oh well.

    If it has happened all of a sudden type of thing it could be either of the meds actually.Chemo Brain or, Canna and/or Morphine psychosis.Especially if he is receiving a higher second round dose of chemo.Compound effect. And for the record having spoken with,known several and still talk with a few.Doctors arent all that.I learned that when I was doing PTA school.Physical Therapists Assistant,and dealing with my own Brain and body lesions at George Town University School of Medicine.Best of Luck to your friend. Oh,and my sister was a Nationally Certified Pharmacy Technician.Not State.So I for one am FAR from clueless. Thank you,Have a fine Day :D I wish thee very best and speedy recovery for your friend.

    Thanks Eyes. Good point to mention on the root cause possibly being related to all or part of 3 types of drugs. I believe but will have to check that this all started after he started using rosin. But not long before that he started the second round of chemo and new regime of opioids to go with it. So could be it was induced by an accumulation of things.

    And my friends are of course consulting with the cancer clinic docs on this. But they are all not canna friendly. I don't think the oncologist is. But as mentioned the clinic just agreed to work on reducing the opiods so he can use Canna too. I was just seeking some outside advise via this medical cannabis discussion board that likely has a lot of experience people on it willing to help and make some suggestions. I appreciate the help and have already passed on suggestions to my friends wife. I know they are looking at alternative medicine on top of the cancer clinic. That's what a lot of cancer patients do from what I understand. I'd do the same thing in that situation.
