09 Jan Nausea Kicked by Cannabis?
Nausea is a major side effect of many conventional cancer cures, and can make it hard for you to do the things you need to do. It may also lead to vomiting which causes dehydration, exhaustion and cause mental fog. Other concerns are loss of appetite and resulting weight loss and nutritional deficiencies. It is estimated that 70%-80% of patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments suffer from this debilitating side-effect.
Patients are typically given prescription medications to alleviate the symptoms. Sometimes dietary changes or hypnosis help. It is becoming more common for those suffering to add Medical Marijuana to their treatment plan as it appears to be a very powerful weapon against nausea.
Recent evidence of CBD’s ability to mitigate nausea provides strong support for the combined action of cannabinoids found in medical marijuana.
