In many cases, when cancer is caught and treated early, you have a high chance of surviving and leading a healthy and fulfilling life. However, conventional treatments for cancer like chemotherapy and radiation also take a toll on your physical and mental health. The side effects of treatment are sometimes more disruptive than your disease. Medical cannabis can soothe the symptoms of cancer as well as the side-effects of treatments. When it interacts with your endocannabinoid receptors, it can reduce your pain and stimulate your appetite, which not only helps you feel better but enables you to eat and maintain your strength to continue your fight.
