Oncological conditions and symptoms
Cancer is a hugely common condition, with 1 in 2 people developing a form of cancer during their lifetime. Cancer is obviously highly debilitating in it’s own right, and treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy come with their own exhausting side effects. This means that finding treatment options that help to improve the quality of life of patients is vital. While research is still ongoing regarding medical cannabis use for the direct treatment of cancer, we should not forget that medical cannabis may have a positive effect on the overall wellbeing of patients with oncological conditions and symptoms.
Medical cannabis can potentially improve the quality of life of patients in a number of ways, for instance through improving sleep and appetite, reducing pain, reducing muscle spasms and lessening anxiety.
Medical cannabis may also help to control the side effects and pain-related symptoms associated with cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
If you satisfy the following conditions, you will be eligible to meet with one of our consultants:

How medical cannabis works:
While you can buy products that may seem like medical cannabis on the high street, like CBD oil or hemp oil, there’s no guarantee that these products are good quality or will have any health benefits.
Medical cannabis that’s available through prescription, like the treatments we offer, is regulated to a high standard and is only offered after a comprehensive health assessment from one of our specialists. In this case, you can be sure you’re getting high quality care with safe and effective products.
Although there can be some side effects with these stronger, medical grade products, our clinical specialists monitor and adjust the prescribed medication accordingly on a regular basis to reduce these side effects as much as possible to ensure you’re satisfied with your care.
At The Medical Cannabis Clinics, we can treat some of the symptoms and side effects of cancer-related treatments.
