Use of CBD or cannabinoids for lung cancer

My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer. As many of you know, this is usually inoperable and the only treatment is chemotherapy. Radiation is not routine because the cancer has metastasized. He and I have been reading articles about the use of CBD, or cannabis derived treatment.  While I was originally skeptical, there is a considerable amount of information about the use of CBD in and out of the traditional medical research community. Has anyone in this forum had experience with using marijuana based products, especially CBD, THC or THCa in their treatment?  Has anyone discussed this with their oncologist?  Thanks in advance.

He said it shows promise with many types of cancer but not so much with lung cancer. However that was 4 years ago. Things can change fast. I am not aware of new research.

As I said that was 4 NOW 5 years ago. The article you have post is 2019. Please be fair to my husband's oncologist. He did not have a crystal ball. He gave the best answer he could at the time. I consider doctors human. They do they best they can but they do not have super powers. He does not deserve to be cut down by anyone. He saved my husband's life. I stand by him. Does he deserve such judgement?
