How Cannabis May Help With Cancer Treatment

How Cannabis May Help With Cancer Treatment

Medical cannabis can help alleviate symptoms associated with a variety of physical and psychological conditions and has been proven to be especially therapeutic for individuals with cancer.

Cannabis and Cancer

Cannabis contains active compounds known as cannabinoids, which include THC and CBD. They are able to activate receptors throughout the body in much the same way as naturally occurring chemical in our endocannabinoid system.

These capabilities enable cannabis products to affect physiological functioning, alleviating many symptoms, and decreasing tumor activity.

Research on the Effects of Cannabis on Cancer

As cannabis legalization becomes more widespread and accepted, we see more support for current studies on cannabis as medicine at the national and international level—studies that were simply not sanctioned in prior years.

What Symptoms Can Cannabis Treat?

The areas about which most agree, include:

  • Relief from nausea associated with chemotherapy.
  • Reduction of pain and inflammation.
  • Help with sleep
  • Help with the psychological and physical discomfort associated with cancer
