Can Cannabis Cure Chemo?

Can Cannabis Cure Chemo?

June 08, 2021

Cancer is a MONSTROUS disease. It claims the lives of more than 600,000 souls every year. And that’s in the United States alone. Cancer actually ranks just behind heart disease as the most fatal ailment among US residents.

Thankfully, roughly 80% of those diagnosed with cancer (in the early to middle stages) survive. And most reach complete remission, with zero recurrences of the disease.

This is an astonishing turnaround considering less than a generation ago, a cancer diagnosis was tantamount to a death sentence.

The root of this dramatic reversal?

In a word: Chemotherapy. Or “Chemo,” as it’s commonly abbreviated.

At the same time, Chemotherapy is likely the most feared medical treatment on the planet. Actually, cancer is probably the only thing scarier than Chemo. How’s that for irony?

What Is Chemo + How Does It Work?

A cocktail of potent drugs, Chemotherapy is designed to literally attack your body at its cellular level. The purpose of the treatment is to obliterate cancerous cells (tumors) and ensure they never return.

Unfortunately, while Chemo is busy assaulting invasive cancerous cells, it’s also destroying healthy cells integral to your body’s normal function. Which, unsurprisingly, makes you feel incredibly ill.

Commons side effects of Chemotherapy include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Chronic physical pain
  • Severe nausea and vomiting
  • Pronounced loss of appetite
  • Compromised immune system
  • Hair loss

And the list goes on…

Outside of basic painkillers and anti-nausea medication, few medications are available to help patients struggling through Chemotherapy.

Cannabis + Chemo

There is, however, one notable exception… Cannabis! Turns out cannabis is one of the most effective, not to mention one of the most recommended, means to mitigate Chemotherapy’s punishing side effects.

In fact, cannabis’s success in countering Chemotherapy is one of the main reasons so many states have legalized medical cannabis.

Though research is scant, owing to cannabis status as an illegal drug, countless cancer patients have reported that cannabis use significantly diminished Chemo-related symptoms.

Specifically, cannabis is to…

  • Curb nausea and stop vomiting
  • Ease chronic associated with neuropathy (caused by Chemo)
  • Improve appetite (which helps strengthen and fortify cancer patients who often lose their appetite and have trouble keeping down the food they manage to eat)
  • Lessen depression and anxiety (which cancer patients often suffer from while undergoing Chemo)

In short, cannabis is the most effective treatment currently available to mitigate the side effects of Chemotherapy.

And it’s proven to be a godsend for the hundreds of thousands of Americans who contract cancer and battle the disease with Chemotherapy every year.
