Cannabis and Cancer A Review of Pre Clinical Research

Cannabis has been used successfully by cancer patients for decades to mitigate the symptoms of treatment options. Based on the anecdotal evidence from patients there is now a growing number of clinical studies being conducted.

Several small studies on smoked cannabis have found that it can help treat nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy. Animal studies also suggest certain cannabinoids may slow growth and reduce the spread of some forms of cancer. While there have been some early clinical trials of cannabinoids in treating cancer in humans, more studies are ongoing and planned.
