I was diagnosed with colon cancer 8 years ago. It was then referred to as advanced stage 3 cancer. I was put on grueling chemotherapy for 7 months. After a month of having no appetite and vomiting, I was given pills for nausea. How can a pill work when you just throw it right back up? I contacted a friend and proceeded to start using cannibus. I smoked after my chemo treatments and found it relieved my nausea and gave me an appetite! There are new strains that are specific for nausea, pain, appetite, etc. You can purchase vapor cigs instead of the old fashion "joint". It is not addictive! Please understand that depending on the state where you live, it can be easy or difficult to find a doctor to prescribe this. Look online to research availability. Best of luck!View Thread
