Medical Marijuana and Cancer, Uterine

More than 35,000 American women are diagnosed with uterine cancer each year, most frequently between the ages of 55 and 65.  Treatment options for uterine cancer include chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which are often harsh and cause severe side effects. In addition to these treatments, most women with uterine cancer also undergo a hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy, which can be very painful.

Medical marijuana is an effective alternative treatment for the pain associated with uterine cancer and hysterectomies, as well as the harsh side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. THC (the main chemical component in marijuana) is a natural antiemetic, which has been shown to help decrease the pain associated with many types of cancer and chemotherapy agents. THC can also help battle chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

What’s more, recent research has shown that medical marijuana has cancer-fighting properties. According to more than eighteen major studies published between 2001 and 2003, cannabinoids have a significant effect fighting cancer cells and have also been shown to exhibit anti-tumor properties—which might help stop the cancer cells from coming back.
