This is a great question and a meaty topic. I will leave it to others to comment on your specific situation with chemo, but in short your getting started steps are:

  1. Connect with a doctor and get a recommendation so that you can become a legal medical cannabis user. The doctor will also give you basic advice on products, but usually not too many specifics.

  2. Find a knowledgable resource to assist you in product selection. This might be a medical professional, a 'bud tender' who works for a dispensary, or a consultant that has helped people like yourself through similar situations.

  3. Find a trusted retailer that can sell you appropriate medications.

Here is a getting started guide we write for some basic learning:
