5 Studies that Indicate How Cannabis Can Help Treat Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common malignant disease among Western women. Although the rates of mortality have declined since the late 1990s, mainly due to adjuvant systemic therapy and earlier detection by palpation and mammograms, certain breast tumors remain resistant to conventional therapies.
In addition, current treatments have side effects that substantially affect the patients’ quality of life. It is therefore obvious that new therapeutic strategies are needed for the management of this condition
We take a look at five key studies on the treatment of breast cancer using cannabis based therapies.
