Significant and rapid weight loss is a serious issue for cancer patients and is often one of the first signs that a person is suffering from cancer. Common cancer treatments usually make the problem worse because they often contribute to further weight loss by the patient.

It is estimated that as many as 100 million people worldwide were suffering from the disease as of 2017, which is more than double the number of people diagnosed with cancer in 1990.

The results of a recent study suggest that the use of cannabis oil may be able to help cancer patients gain weight. You can read about it in our recent article at Cannabis & Tech Today.
