    Yes, it certainly is, and Jim's oncologist is just ecstatic with his progress. She said "it's remarkable!"

    Thank you for your positive thoughts, Howie. All that energy is working so well for Jim, and we are truly grateful.

    Rose and Jim, yes we will keep all those positive thoughts going your way.

    BBS, if you are taking CBD oil, why do you even need the MMJ? Just curious. I am still going to have all my medicines checked to see if I can take the CBD oil. I just do not know who by. For sure, the NP that I now have to see for my Neurologist would not know. There is one pharmacy that might if I can get there.

    BBS, another question re CBD oil. I am not sleeping and I am having some anxiety, do you think it would help with that?

    The MMJ will be far more effective since it's the ratio between CBD and THC that is synergistic.

    Some do report benefit re sleep with CBD oil.

    I've had shingles twice, it's supposed to be like chicken pox where the person only gets it once, but the divorce from my 2nd husband was extremely stressful and I've heard that that can cause a shingles recurrence.

    Because I got it the second time I asked the pharmacist about the shingles vaccine and was told that I shouldn't get one because it has live virus in it.
