A cancer specialist at a leading Bangkok hospital has warned those suffering from the disease not to take matters into their own hands and treat themselves by vaping cannabis oil.

 

A case came to light when a 48 year old man went to Ramathibodi Hospital where he was diagnosed with lung cancer in February. 

 

He had regular treatment and showed improvement but then started vaping cannabis oil and had a severe relapse. 

 

He was admitted and had to be put on oxygen though his symptoms have now improved.

A cancer specialist at the hospital advised people against the practice of vaping. 

 

Medicinal marihuana to alleviate the effects of chemotherapy or radiotherapy should be taken in other forms. 

 

Vaping - especially for lung cancer sufferers - could lead to other problems.

E acetate again? It's not the vaping itself, but using juices containing hazardous chemicals. 

I don t think so. He vapes while he has lung cancer. He should not vape or smoke period.

They always talk about the dangerous vaping. But the problem is more that the people vape unhealthy and dangerous substances. If people become sick from drinking too much alcohol or illegal made alcohol, they never say that drinking itself is dangerous or the drinking glass is dangerous.

Smoking or vaping anything is a bad idea since burning and inhaling fumes from combustion (of any substance) is acidic and full of harsh chemicals and particulates which are counterproductive to your health.

Yes, but I think very many doctors still say that vaping is far less harmful than smoking.

That’s the advantage of vaping, you don’t burn any vegetable material. You just vaporize the resin. 

 

THC is antitumougenic and kills many types of cancer cells, I think vaping would help, especially if you vape  pure cannabis resin. 

 

I thought it was pretty irresponsible of the oncologist to blame vaping and not even mention that every death or Injury caused by vaping was either caused by oil-soluble carrier fluids like Vitamin E acetate or the flavoring agent added to popcorn and other foodstuffs, Diacetyl which was never meant to be inhaled.
