Using Cannabis to Treat Cancer
Preclinical lab studies have shown promising results when involving marijuana’s effect on cancers. In certain types of cancer, THC damaged or killed cancer cells or helped block the development of tumours. CBD also showed similar results in breast cancer cells, while having limited effect on healthy breast cells.
In addition to these promising details, medical marijuana benefits inflammation, pain relief and can stimulate appetite. The FDA has also approved two cannabinoid drugs for treating nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy.
