Increasing, people are turning to medical marijuana to treat many diseases, including cancers. In a published study it was found that marijuana does nothing to advance the treatment of glaucoma, anxiety, or Parkinson’s disease. The study did not look at any cancers.
Not reaching any level of evidence, I am aware of a few men who have used medical marijuana to treat their prostate cancer, but their experience has been that the marijuana has not had an effect on their cancer.
What is more important is that this study did conclude that marijuana is highly effective in pain control. The study found a major and what I would describe as a dramatic reduction in the use of pain control medications. Given the nature of progressed advanced prostate cancer I can only conclude that medical marijuana does have a legitimate medical role in palliation.
