Not going to go into too much detail and not sure if this is the right section to post.

I smoke purely cos I like it. It’s how I chill out, but after learning so much about growing this plant you do learn of other things it can do besides chilling me the fuck out.

But I’ve never needed it for medicinal benefits so haven’t researched or practiced with that side of the plant.

So I’m here to ask about the role cannabis could play in helping someone who will be receiving treatment for cancer. Obviously not to treat it but easing symptoms, pain, nausea etc…

suggestions like certain strains, consumption methods, what can help what and shit like that

thanks everyone

Dr Grinspoon had a lot to say about this:

@billy420bonds how did cannabis help you? How did you consume it? Did you do any research into it? Basically sharing your story that might help someone who is in a similar position to what you were in

Hey @Greentomatoe, maybe start trying different strains now if at all possible and chose a couple that you like. You may want one that will put you to sleep and another that just help take your mind off things.

I had lung cancer and had half of my right lung removed. Wasn't in the mood to smoke anything right after that, so tried some edibles but no consistence. I didn't have to go through chemotherapy because they just took it all, but it was 10-11 months before I could move half right. I just passed 6 yrs of CT scans every 3 months like Russian roulette, and am clear now. Once I hit 15 yrs they say I'm cured. Luckily I didn't have anything else going on, no world tours, not even a movie shoot or a political campaign to run. But stay positive, and try not to bitch slap people when they say stupid stuff. It's just another page in your book, you get through it. You can message me if you ever need to.  Peace

So I’m here to ask about the role cannabis could play in helping someone who will be receiving treatment for cancer. Obviously not to treat it but easing symptoms, pain, nausea etc…

Interesting that you ask about this now because I was considering posting about cannabis and cancer, too; I just returned from a trip to visit a family member for what is probably the last time due their stage-4 metastasized cancer. The irony is that the the person lives in a legal state but is of the "war on drugs" prohibition era.  Had cannabis been a part of this person's life, then at the very least their suffering from the toxic prescribed drugs could have been reduced, and quite possibly the cancer perhaps could have been held off longer or prevented.  I know that last statement seems like a huge statement, but THC and CBD has anti-metastatic properties, among many other benefits from in the whole plant.

I *highly* recommend that you take a look at at Dr. Bonni Goldstein's book, "Cannabis is Medicine" (2020). It has an excellent intro to the topic and then a chapter each about many different diseases that can be treated effectively with cannabis, often including a first-hand accounts at the end of each chapter.  The entire book is a really strong contribution, but the intro chapters and the chapters on cancer, pain, depression, and appetite will be most helpful. The bottom-line is that the specific situation the patient is in dictates which cannabinoid and chemo-var would best be suited. Her text can be downloaded or streamed instantly, or you can get a paper copy.  It is worth far more than the nominal cost to a patient and their family/friends. I hope this helps.

Hang in there.

Thanks, mate.  I'm hanging in there. I just can't believe that this person lives in Colorado, a totally legal state for people +21, yet they are reluctant to even try cannabis, in part due to the doctor being ignorant of the medicinal benefits of cannabis.  I just shake my head, just shake my head.

I know this: after reading Goldstein's book, I am using more cannabis, even if it is just for the antioxidants in the phytocannabinoids.

@greentomato we had Dr Bonnie Goldstein as a podcast guest long ago, Dr Goldstein said cannabis works well with some cancer treatments to make the chemo more effective. She also advocated continued use of cannabis after treatment as a preventative measure and also has real results to back up that as well. Her videos are all over youtube.
