Expert-reviewed information summary about the use of Cannabis and cannabinoids in the treatment of cancer-related side effects, such as nausea and vomiting.
This summary contains the following key information:
Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.
By federal law, the possession of Cannabis is illegal in the United States, except within approved research settings; however, a growing number of states, territories, and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to legalize its medical use.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved Cannabis as a treatment for cancer or any other medical condition.
From the perspective of drug warriors, the criminal laws against drug possession are all that protect Americans from a deluge of drugs, an orgy of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine use that would kill children, destroy productivity and basically leave America a smoking hulk of wasteland populated by brain-dead zombies.
FACT: C-3, C-4 receptors in the Endo-Cannabinoid System wither away from lack of stimulation after a certain period of time. It’s too bad Ronald Reagan & others who suffered from Alzheimer’s were led to believe that they ought to wage a war against cannabis. Ironically, while Reagan was waging war against the herb, cannabinoid deficiency was literally killing him – as his mind deteriorated.
