T hough still federally illegal due to its Schedule I status, cannabis is widely used to help treat many medical conditions including cancer and the side effects of its treatment. Advocates for cannabis reform often cite the benefit to cancer patients which go well beyond the head high that is typically associated with marijuana consumption. In fact, cannabis can improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy – and minimize those nasty side effects – in many exciting ways. Chemotherapy is a process that uses special drugs to kill cells in the body before they split and spread. They can be ingested in a few ways – pills, shots, or an IV, for example – with the intention of stopping the spread of cancerous cells before they get out of control. The problem is that chemo targets all cells (including healthy ones) which can cause major damage and discomfort in patients.
The side effects of chemotherapy can be devastating including things like hair loss, nausea and fatigue. Chemo patients also often suffer from depression due to the uncertainty of their condition which can exacerbate the negative side effects of chemotherapy.
Cannabis can effectively address many of these symptoms including pain, inflammation, nausea, appetite loss, and depression.
