Under doctors’ orders, 3-year-old Landon Riddle began treatment for his leukemia: aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. But while still living in Utah, Sierra Riddle watched her little boy become violently ill from the chemotherapy.
Landon suffered nerve-damage in his legs, nausea that led to vomiting dozens of times a day, intense pain and at one point went 25 days without eating following the chemo treatment, according to CNN.
“Around the clock, he was usually on liquid morphine, Ativan, Promethexane,” Sierra told CNN.
“And it just really didn’t seem to be helping.”
Feeling like her family “didn’t have anything left to lose” she looked into medical marijuana treatment. She moved her family to Colorado Springs, Colo. to benefit from the state’s marijuana laws and started to give Landon liquid forms of both Cannabidiol, or CBD, and Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC.
“Within four weeks we could see the improvement,” Sierra told KRDO, a local news affiliate
Sierra swapped chemotherapy for cannabis therapy and has seen her son return to his old energetic self as his cancer has gone into remission.
Doctor Threatens Mother for Choosing Cannabis Over Chemo
Sierra Riddle’s decision to use medical marijuana as treatment for her son’s cancer has raised some eyebrows in the traditional medical community — so much so, that one Colorado doctor reported Sierra to Human Services for refusing chemotherapy for Landon.

HaHaHa lmao, They say that this is “ground breaking news ” LOL my ass. There has been tons of reports and evidence of marijuana for years out supporting this info they are talking about. That is like sayin` that it is ground breaking news that radiation causes cancer. LOL
hhahahahahaa your exactly right Digger.
Yep 😆 😎
I would bet that Human Services will still force her son to receive chemo, even though he is in remission. What a f**cked-up medical system we have to deal with! Unfortunately, many parents will roll-over, surrender, and do whatever the State tells them to do. After all, Obamacare, the American Cancer Society, and the pharmaceutical companies DO NOT WANT A CURE FOR CANCER. If people can cure cancer from ingesting the oil of a wild cannabis weed, then there will be no corporate multi-billion dollar profits. This may eventually signal the end of pot dispensaries, regardless of State Laws.
Not that simple.
How are they going to get rid of all the foods that have vitamin B-17 in them?
Well #1, didn’t they ban sale of apricots pits awhile back?
Not that I’ve heard, Millard.
In fact, I’m getting ready to order some more today.
Yes #1 I think it was back in the late 90`s early 2000 they were banned, not illegal just banned. I couldn`t even order the kernels. Just like stevia was also banned back then.
There are a lot of natural sources of B17 Millard – apple seeds for one. The apricot kernels are just one the best source.
Hey Digger i order apricot seeds on line from http://www.nu-gen.com the kernes are from Kazakhstan i think. others that are offered are out of California, and dont want that.
Are they processed in any way? Many are, especially from overseas.
I’ve been getting mine from ApricotPower. com. for about 4 1/2 yrs. now. They’re grown here in CA, and guaranteed to not be processed in any way at all.
They cured my cancer (and a friend of mine’s), and no problems so far.
My point was that they have attempted to restrict access to natural remedies that affect their bottom line.
Your right Millard 🙂
