I found it helps with nausea when on certain drugs more than anything else.
Cannabis oil did not knock out my pain like I thought it would. But believe it or not, it seemed to make my metabolism run higher, and I lost a little weight. Which is the opposite of what I expected.
Smoking pot made me hungry something doctors WANT a person fighting cancer to feel. Smoking pot allowed me to sleep, something else doctors WANT to happen. Food and rest are Cancers enemy's as that is when the body rebuilds. A feeding tube stuck in your gut is a painful thing and a hole in your neck with a tube is no fun either.
When I had the C my appetite was non existent.
When you have throat cancer meals come in cans. Ensure and lots of it. What a pain in the ass it was.
Now that sucks!
Hell,mine came with a benefit!! I can now get drunk much easier!!
First off...the study conclusions were badly written. NO proper scientist would ever say there is 'no evidence' for such a large study. A good one would say there is 'little' evidence or 'the evidence strongly indicates that there is little correlation...'. But only a Mickey Mouse scientist would say 'no evidence'.
The only way that there was 'no evidence' would be if every, single person in the study stated that they had no improvement whatsoever. And with a study of over 1,000 (as this one was - https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpub/article/PIIS2468-2667(18)30110-5/abstract ), it is almost impossible to believe that exactly 0 out of over 1,000 people had no improvement in their symptoms whatsoever.
'No' (in this case) means 'zero'. And zero is an absolute. And I see zero evidence that this study showed that not one patient found ANY pain benefit from smoking cannibis.
Second...it is virtually irrelevant whether they help patients with their pain or not. Do the patients want to take it? And - according to the study - the percentage of patients who wanted to be able to use cannibis to help with their pain increased significantly (almost double) as the study progressed.
When someone is suffering from chronic pain, it is irrelevant what they want to help themselves (assuming to do so hurts no one else directly).
If they want to smoke dope, do lines of coke or have sex with trees....that is their business.
Whatever helps them get through the pain is what matters.
So, if a patient wants to smoke dope to help them with chronic pain, then a doctor should prescribe them cannabis....whether the doctor believes in cannabis's pain-reducing qualities or not. Especially if the doctor is not able to fully relive their patients pain symptoms using traditional methods.
BTW - I, personally, don't like dope. Makes me paranoid. But I believe that anyone should be free to ingest virtually anything they wish...especially if they are suffering from chronic pain. And doubly so if the pain cannot be significantly reduced by present legal/common methods.
Oh please, just SHUT THE FUCK UP. The ADULTS are talking. Take your ignorant pius ass and cripple another thread. And from ALL OF US Cancer survivors.....GO FUCK YOURSELF.
Jesus...I am truly sorry for your losses to this horrific group of diseases (I lost my Mother to skin cancer and almost my sister to breast cancer).
There are few people over 30 whose lives have not been significantly 'touched' by cancer.
