Bone cancer is a rare type of cancer, making up less than 1% of all cancers. Noncancerous tumors are more common than cancerous ones. Overall, around 6 in every 10 people with bone cancer will live for at least 5 years from the time of their diagnosis, with many being cured completely. Osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma and chondrosarcoma are the most common types of bone cancer.
There is some evidence that cannabis can help in the treatment of many types of cancer, including bone cancer, but there is little in the way of clinical trials. Bones also contain cannabinoid receptors, suggesting that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a potential target for treating bone cancer. More research and clinical trials are needed.
