- The blog article I linked is from 2012, but tbh I haven't heard any credible evidence since then regarding cannabis cancer cures. Cannabis can be helpful for some patients who are struggling with chemotherapy side effects, but as always any supplements must be discussed and approved by the primary care oncologist first, and it depends on a case by case basis.Jan 12, 2017
- It was updated last year. I reshared it anyhow. These things don't change every month and there's always someone interested who hasn't seen it already.Jan 12, 2017
- There's also this boingboing.net - Cancer and cannabis: How I learned to stop worrying and love medical marijuana
So cannabis definitely can help with chemo and radiation side effects, but it's important to make sure that the primary care oncologist is aware of the intention to use cannabis for that purposeJan 12, 2017
