Cancer treatment is one of the main therapeutic applications of cannabinoids. Research has identified cannabinoids with excellent analgesic properties, cannabinoids that increase appetite and cannabinoids that reduce nausea. Therefore, cannabinoids are often used to alleviate the adverse effects of chemo therapy and other invasive cancer treatments. In addition, cannabinoids such as THC and CBD have been used to push cancer cells from ‘dividing-mode’ into ‘suicide-mode’ and to instruct the immune system to clear away the debris. Therefore, cannabinoids do not only have potential to treat the symptoms of many types of cancer, but also to treat cancer itself.
