Here is some reading and background information concerning cancer and medical marijuana. Please note some of these may not be the latest information but are included to offer a wide range of sources and opinions, they do not constitute medical advice, and in almost every case more research is needed before there is certainty.
Cancer is a condition that refers to a number of diseases that occur when cells grow abnormally and uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. As the cells divide, they invade and destroy healthy tissue, including organs. There are more than 200 types of cancer; the most common being skin, breast, prostate, lung, kidney, and bladder. Medical cannabis can help those suffering from cancer by helping reduce pain and stress, improving sleep, and combating nausea and vomiting that often accompanies chemotherapy treatment.
