The process of cancer treatment has side effects that usually overwhelm the patient. The side effects of chemotherapy include nausea and vomiting. These side effects usually make the patient feeling weak and dizzy. Studies show that these effects can be minimized by smoking medical marijuana.
A number of small studies of smoked marijuana found that it can be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy.
A few studies have found that inhaled (smoked or vaporized) marijuana can be helpful treatment of neuropathic pain (pain caused by damaged nerves).
There are also studies to prove that cannabis does not only reduces the adversity of the side effects but it also reduces the size of cancer tumors.
