Marijuana can help to treat the side effects of treating major illnesses.
Some diseases are so terrible that even their treatments are an ordeal.
Hepatitis C and many types of cancer both fall under this category.
Radiation treatments, chemotherapy, and intense medications have a host of negative impacts on the body.
Nausea, fatigue, muscle aches, depression, and lost appetite are just a few of the major side effects patients experience while coping with the terrible disease.
But many studies have shown that smoking marijuana can calm most of these symptoms.
This increases the odds of successful treatment because the patient can eat and rest properly, and they are less likely to quit treatments to escape the side effects.
