Subject: Cannabis Use For Pediatric Cancers
With the slackening of legislation in some states to allow the use of marijuana, there has been a surge in the research to test the effectiveness of cannabis against various diseases. The most interest has been on treating cancer. Animal cells have shown promise in fighting off cancer in children, but human trials are currently prohibited. There have, however, been some documented cases of parents using cannabis to treat cancer in their children. These few cases just show how much more research we need to apply to the topic.
- Cannabis is a potentially beneficial treatment for cancer.
- The author has had some success using cannabis oil alone and cannabis oil in conjunction with chemotherapy with children.
- If cannabis can be rescheduled from Schedule I to Schedule II, researchers can finally find the desperately needed answers and save many lives.
"Cannabis treatment for children with cancer remains controversial, however, in cases of treatment-resistant cancers and severe side effects from treatment, cannabis must be a readily available option, especially since it is significantly less toxic than most cancer treatments."
