Description

Do you have questions about cancer and how cannabis can benefit you?

Please join us at Farmacy’s Clinic and speaker Andrew Gill who will be discussing cannabis use and how it can benefit the symptoms of cancer.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, about 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 4 will die of the disease. Some options for cancer treatment today include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, stem cell transplants, and other forms of targeted therapy. Depending on the cancer these treatments may be right for you but are often painful and have common side effects such as anemia, appetite loss, bleeding and bruising, constipation, diarrhea, edema, and fatigue. The more we begin to understand cannabis we learn that many patients opt to use cannabis as a cancer treatment or they use the plant to manage symptoms like nausea, pain, and depression. Cannabis activist, Rick Simpson’s success at curing his own cancer shed light on the healing properties of cannabis. His use of hemp oil (Phoenix Tears of Rick Simpson Oil) shows great promise.

Some of the different symptoms that arise from cancer that may be treated with cannabis include:

-Chronic pain

-Weight gain

-Emotional regulation (anxiety and depression)

-Nausea

-Appetite

-Inflammatory pain

-Insomnia/Restlessness

-Proliferation of tumor growth

…and more
