There are two avenues to take regarding cannabis, cancer, and chemo. The first is using cannabis products to alleviate the side effects of chemo. This has proven very effective. A study in Israel had to open a double blind study to all participants because it was so obvious which children were using cannabis during chemo and which children were not. As far as using cannabis to battle cancer directly, it depends on a large number of variables and you would need to speak with a doctor about this option. Depending on the type of cancer and the progression of it, there may be help.
