Though It Is A Deadly Disease, The Earlier Cancer Is Detected And Diagnosed, The Better Chance For Treatment And Survival. Medical Cannabis Has Been Shown To Assist With The Management Of Cancer-related Symptoms.
Using Cannabis to Treat Cancer
Preclinical lab studies have shown promising results when involving cannabis’s effect on cancer. In certain types of cancer, THC damaged or killed cancer cells or helped block the development of tumours. CBD has also showed similar results in breast cancer cells, while having limited effect on healthy breast cells.
In addition to these promising details, medical cannabis benefits inflammation, pain relief and can stimulate appetite. The FDA has also approved two cannabinoid drugs for treating nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy.
Typical Cancer Treatment Options:
After cancer is diagnosed it is typically treated with one or all of the following: surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. With over two hundred types of cancer in existence, each treatment may vary drastically from the next. Even the same cancer in different patients may be treated differently. An oncologist, a doctor who specializes in treating cancer, will determine what plan may work best for the patient.
Chemotherapy: is a treatment involving powerful drugs that attack and destroy cancer cells, but may also weaken the human body in other areas.
Radiation therapy: uses radiation to damage cancer cells, but can also affect healthy cells.
Surgery: the treatment of cancer by incision or manipulation, especially with instruments.
