BOULDER, Colo., September 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- At 16 years old, Braden Stevenson received a diagnosis of osteosarcoma, a malignant bone cancer, and immediately underwent surgery to amputate his leg and start chemotherapy. The medical test came in 6 months later on November 20, 2017; the cancer nodules moved to his lungs and increased to 40 and varied in size up to 8 mm. The doctors told Braden, and his mother, Amy Oliver, that there was little more they could do and the prognosis was grim. Not to give up on her son's life the mother and son chose another option: a cancer protocol from Trill Alternatives, Boulder, CO, using THC/CBD and THCa.
"The doctors said there was nothing more they could do for my son," said Amy Oliver, Brandon's mother, "I was aware of CBD's but did not know how they can help a child with cancer."
David Threlfall, the founder of Trill Alternatives, reached out and explained how Cannabis works in the body to create cell death or apoptosis.
"Together we worked on a health plan for Braden based on our lifestyle and Trill Alternatives cancer program that has shown great results," said Threfall
Trill's custom plan is using high doses of CBD (no High) and THC. The CBD cuts the high from THC and is a proactive way to build up a tolerance to THC. "The first thing I always do with new clients is to educate them on how THC and CBD will affect them, and we start slowly with low doses of THC to figure out someone's tolerance levels, and up the dose as their tolerance levels rise," said Threlfall. "We know what is working once we get their medical tests results back and in Braden's case, it worked very well." (See attached test results)
On June 26, 2018, Braden and his family received the next round of test results. The cancerous nodules in Braden's lungs decreased from forty to three, from 8 mm to 3mm. "There is no doubt that without David's education and Trill's sponsorship that the medical tests would tell a different story. Braden is eager to start school again," Amy Oliver said.
A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC might make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.
Trill Alternatives brought in several different CBD brands only to find that most have fillers or additives and spotty results. "The quality was missing; We had to create our own CBD pill called, Trill Pills, a patented lipid-based extraction process using no fillers or synthetic ingredients." They come in 3 doses 10 mg 25mg and 50 mg.
David Threlfall's interest in the medical side of cannabis stems from losing his mother to lung cancer. Trill Alternatives is one of the first dispensaries to open in Colorado, in 2010.

September is National Childhood Awareness Month. Families, caregivers, charities and research groups across the United States observe September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 receive a cancer diagnosis every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease. A diagnosis turns the lives of the entire family upside down. The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that affect children, survivorship issues, and – importantly – to help raise funds for research and family support
