There is an increasing number of states in the United States that are legalizing the use of marijuana for medical reasons. This is something that has many advantages, especially when you consider the fact that the drug has numerous useful applications. One of the ways in which many people find this drug useful is in the treatment of some forms of cancer.
The logic behind this is easy to understand. Usually, cancer has a number of effects on the body including making the individual lose weight and also reducing their appetite, further making it more difficult for them to gain weight. In addition to that, the fact that the drugs used in the treatment of cancer have numerous side effects on the body also makes it more difficult for such people to thrive.
Fortunately, the use of medical marijuana can solve most of these problems. Since marijuana causes an increase in appetite, it can be used to combat the weight loss and poor appetite that comes with cancer and chemotherapy. In addition to that, the fact that it has very effective anti-depressant effects means that it can also be used to get rid of any negative psychological effect that the cancer may have on the individual.
