Medical Cannabis for Cancer Cure

Cancer results from the uncontrolled growth of previously healthy cells. That means that cancer cells mutate, even if the body doesn’t need them. Traditional cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation kill cells but can’t specifically target just the bad cancer cells. This causes a wide array of other conditions and symptoms, like nausea, appetite loss, and depression. Using medical marijuana can help offset some of these conditions to help improve the quality of life for someone battling cancer.

Medical marijuana is approved in New York as a supplemental treatment for cancer patients. Cannabis has been shown in countless studies to provide relief from many of the common ailments associated with treating cancer.
