“I noticed the effects immediately after starting the therapy” – a patient with brain cancer.
Brain cancer and medical marijuana
Exactly 9 years ago, I was diagnosed with brain cancer. I began standard therapy. I underwent radiotherapy as well as numerous surgeries aimed at removing the tumor.
Unfortunately, pain would wake me up at night. I took painkillers – opiates. I felt I was becoming addicted to them. A friend told me that therapy with medical marijuana could help me stop taking the drugs that were negatively affecting me and also help me regain my appetite. I decided to try.
What I can say about the therapy is, first and foremost, that I don’t feel like mm is addictive to me. I vaporize three times a day, which helps me keep the pain at bay – with consistency, it does not return.
