I absolutely hate cancer. If you know someone that is suffering from cancer, is a cancer survivor, or lost their life to cancer, than I'm sure you feel the same. It's absolutely horrific. My stepdad is fighting cancer for the second time, and it makes my heart heavy just thinking about it. But that's not to say he's not fighting, because he absolutely is. He kicked cancer's ass once, and he will do it again.
One thing that my stepdad did the first time he had cancer was use cannabis to help him with his appetite, and to 'take the edge off' after treatments. It would very well. This time around, he wants to step it up a bit. We have been looking a lot into the various options for consuming cannabis that will be best for him. There's a lot of info out there, but it's hard to know what is legit, and what is just 'fluff.'
I am in no way a doctor, and while I know about studies and personal testimonies, I'd prefer to learn from a medical expert. The problem with that is that there are a lot of doctor's out there that just want to push pharmaceuticals and won't even entertain the idea of using cannabis. My stepdad talked to his primary physician and the small army of other specialists he's seen, and not one of them will even discuss the idea of using medical cannabis.
Fortunately there is an event that is going to specifically talk about the topic of cancer and cannabis. The event is the Virtual Cannabis Health Summit, and it's coming up on January 23-24. The event will have more than twenty experts on the subject of medical marijuana, including doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. The event is completely free, and will stream live online, so you don't even have to leave your home.
The event will also cover several other topics. I personally plan on having a viewing party at my house. My stepdad will be in attendance, along with several other members of my friends and family. I encourage you to check out the event. All you have to do to sign up for the event is click this link, and enter in your e-mail address. That's it. Below is a video that talks more about the event. A lot of events charge an arm and a leg for this kind of expert info, and you have to travel. That's why I'm pushing this event so much - it's free, and you can watch it from home with others that want to learn!
