How can Michigan Cannabis ‘WORK’ to Provide Relief to those suffering from Cancer?
Cannabis works in the body when processed by the ECS, or Endocannabinoid System. Everyone has an ECS in their body. The ECS is made up of 2 types of receptors located in the brain that decides how your body reacts physically and mentally to cannabis. No matter which forms you decide to consume your medical cannabis, your ECS will be doing the work to break it down for you to provide you with the relief you are longing for.
Medical marijuana is a popular treatment choice for those who have suffered in the past, or who are currently battling cancer. Medical marijuana helps those suffering from cancer by relieving these common symptoms:
As a result of standard medication for treating cancer such as radiation or chemotherapy or by using other prescription drugs, patients can experience loss of appetite oftentimes leading to unexpected weight loss. There is actually a medical term for this unxpected weight loss its called, cachexia or ‘wasting syndrome’. To aid this symptom, patients have found relief by using medical marijuana in various forms. Many patients report gaining their appetite back and having more energy than before, compared to using other forms of medication to relieve the same symptoms.
Nausea and vomiting are common side effects those with cancer face as a result of the use of many prescription medications given to patients. Those undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, and other hormone therapy often reduce nausea and other unpleasant side effects brought on by common medications prescribed to cancer patients, by medicating with medical cannabis. Patients can find relief from nausea and vomiting by standard vaporization of flower, by using vape cartridges, or by consuming edible cannabis in the form of a tincture, oil, or other processed product such as a gummy.
Sleepless nights due to pain or anxiety are common side effects those battling cancer experience. Cannabis is here to help. Patients can find better, quality sleep and relief from their anxiety by medicating with cannabis. Patients reported getting a more restful nights sleep and being able to stay asleep longer with the help of cannabis. Popular items used for getting this result require higher CBD options such as 1:1 edibles such as gummies, or other CBD dominant products available at Michigan dispensaries.
NEUROPATHY AND OTHER CHRONIC PAIN
Neuropathy is something patients experience after nerve damage occurs. Nerve damage unfortunately is sometimes never restored completely after undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Medical marijuana can help relieve the tingling, needles, or burning sensations that patients report after these standard cancer treatments are performed. Patients can find relief to target areas undergoing or previously undergone treatment by applying topicals such as salves or lotions. Topicals are just one-way patients can use cannabis to find relief to symptoms and side effects resulting from cancer.
