Cancer Q&A

What is cancer?

Cancer is a common chronic condition in which abnormal cells divide and can spread to surrounding tissues. Treating cancer in its early stages gives you the best chance of making a full recovery, but some cancer treatments contribute to undesirable side effects. Examples include appetite loss, nausea, fatigue, and pain. Medical marijuana can alleviate symptoms.

How does medical marijuana help with cancer?

Studies show that medical marijuana can diminish symptoms associated with cancer and its treatments by:

  • Reducing nausea and vomiting

  • Diminishing nerve pain

  • Improving appetite and food intake

  • Reducing the need for pain medicine

Additional studies report that cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD can cause slower growth or death of cancer cells.

Am I a candidate for medical marijuana?

If you have cancer and you’d like to find out if medical marijuana is for you, visit Texas THC Doctor for an evaluation. Your provider reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and completes a physical exam. They can work with your specialist to customize a treatment plan based on your unique needs.

Texas THC Doctor is part of the Texas Compassionate Use Program for medical marijuana and is registered through the Texas Compassionate Use Registry. This allows providers to legally prescribe medical cannabis and CBD to patients with cancer or other qualifying medical conditions.

What type of medical marijuana is right for cancer patients?

Medical marijuana for cancer patients is available in a variety of forms, including:

  • Oils

  • Edibles (e.g., candies, gummies)

  • Vapor

  • Drinks

  • Sprays 

  • Medications

Your provider personalizes each treatment based on the type and severity of cancer you have, cancer treatments you’re undergoing, and your symptoms. 

After receiving your prescription and medical marijuana from Texas Original pharmacy, your Texas THC Doctor monitors you periodically to ensure treatment is working the way it’s designed. They can make changes to your treatment as needed to give you the best outcome.

Don’t live with undesirable side effects of cancer or cancer treatment when medical marijuana can optimize your quality of life.
