Also weed is really good at counteracting some of the worst side effects of chemo. Edibles are stupid and have no medical value for chemo because they cause nausea and horrible body dysphoria if you take even just a little bit too much. But inhaled (vaporized, or if you're a dumbass, smoked) is pretty fucking good at killing nausea and encouraging appetite while distracting you from pain.

I know a guy who claimed to have cured himself by consuming extremely large amounts of hash in cold smoothies. Even if you get nausea & dysphoria, you still get CBD and other chemicals into your system, so I can't see they are of no medical value.

For every person who has a "natural" cure story there are millions of people who died trying the same thing and possibly even made their situation worse. Sometimes you can do less harmful treatments like radiation if you know you're going to die anyway, and they give you more time with few side effects.

But yes, with the approval of a doctor, I would be loading my body with as much THC and CBD as possible in addition to whatever treatment they want to give me. If they refused to help me with that I'd either do it anyway or find another doctor who wants to help.
