Cannabis has several compounds that have research-backed benefits for cancer patients. The science shows that it’s a safe and effective medicine that can be used to treat cancer-related symptoms like pain, nausea, and inflammation. Some research has shown that it might have benefit in slowing cancer growth and shrinking tumor size.

Medical marijuana is approved in New York as a supplemental treatment for cancer patients. That’s because it’s been proven to relieve many of the uncomfortable and painful symptoms that are caused by cancer and conventional, mainstream treatments.
