Title: pot as treatment?
Post by: potisgood? on October 25, 2017, 09:44:57 pm
I was talking to friend and he said that pot actually can help halt the growth of the bad cancer cells. Is it true? Is it for all kinds of cancers?

Marijuana is certainly popular among people with cancer -- a recent study showed that about 20% use so -- and it can be helpful for symptoms like pain and side effects like nausea.

Some people swear by cannabis oil as a treatment for cancer. Unfortunately, because of the federal ban on research, we don't know enough about whether it works, who it works for, or what kinds of cancers it might be good for.

No other country has tried doing a study? What about California? Seems like if any state would try it would be them. Friggin US government. Such a shame. Could help so many people.
