Cannabis & CBD Combat the Loss of Appetite in Cancer Patients


Stimulate the Appetite with the Help of CBD and Cannabis

Nausea image -Cannabis & CBD Combats the Loss of Appetite in Cancer PatientsAre you struggling with appetite loss related to cancer? Medical professionals, like myself have a number of different ways that can help you control the nausea. But have you considered the addition of medical cannabis? Cannabis made its way back into the Western medical community based on how it manages nausea and loss of appetite surrounding end-stage HIV/Aids and cancer back in the ’80s or ’90s.

It works through the CB1 receptors in the brain. The brains is richly covered with CB1 receptors and cannabis, cannabidiols, THC and to a lesser extent CBD, work centrally in the brain to help to reduce nausea and stimulate appetite. A loss of appetite and loss of weight is the immediate cause of death in 40% of patients with cancer. It’s likely because there’s a lot of ongoing inflammation in the body from the cancer but it’s also because the tumor eats up so many calories. Tumors grow at an alarming rate. They even exhibit the ability to redirect blood vessels for further nourishment and growth.

So, make sure that you have the energy to fight back. Do everything you can to manage the weight loss and control the nausea.
