Marijuana’s Role in Cancer Treatment

Effects of marijuana

As a controlled substance, marijuana is typically thought of as a drug that can help users get high. While this is the case, some substances in marijuana also interact with the body and can have a positive effect on certain physical symptoms. For example, marijuana can relieve pain and nausea, reduce inflammation, and act as an antioxidant. It’s these effects that marijuana can have on the body that support the argument from certain providers for its legalization as a prescribed drug for certain condition.
