Cancer & Pain

Medical cannabis has been explored for its potential benefits in cancer treatment and management. While it’s important to note that more research is needed to fully understand its effects, some benefits of using medical cannabis for cancer include:

  • Pain relief: Cancer often causes chronic and severe pain, which can be challenging to manage with traditional pain medications. Medical cannabis, particularly strains high in THC, has shown potential in alleviating cancer-related pain by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in pain regulation.
  • Nausea and vomiting reduction: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce severe nausea and vomiting, leading to a loss of appetite and nutritional deficiencies. Both THC and CBD found in amedical cannabis have been studied for their antiemetic properties, potentially helping to reduce nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatments.
  • Appetite stimulation and weight management: Cancer and its treatments can cause a loss of appetite, leading to weight loss and malnutrition.
