A cancer diagnosis is very complex and difficult to deal with, with a number of treatment options often either unsuitable or ineffective. That’s why many patients benefit from medicinal cannabis as an effective form of medication. It can help to treat multiple aspects of having cancer, from chemotherapy side effects, to anxiety following diagnosis, to end-of-life relief.

There are more than 200 different types of cancer, so naturally every diagnosis and treatment plan is very different. Many mainstream treatment options, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, can come with nasty side effects or low success rates. So many people look to medicinal cannabis either to work alongside other medications they may be taking, or as an alternative to treatments that haven’t suited them.

Discover how medical cannabis can provide effective pain relief

Patients may be prescribed painkillers but find that they are ineffective in treating their pain. These drugs can be incredibly strong painkillers, with far-reaching side effects. Sometimes, even these cannot help patients to manage pain, leading them to explore other avenues. For example, medical cannabis can be used to modulate pain through the use of phytocannabinoids, which are a class of lipophilic molecules that interact with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system is a network which interacts with the body's central nervous and peripheral nervous system. In short, this means that phytocannabinoids hold incredible pharmacological potential.
