Stomach Cancer


Cannabis for Stomach Cancer

There are many different types of cancer that affect different parts of the stomach. Precancerous changes usually occur in the inner lining (mucosa) of the stomach. Most types of stomach cancer are adenocarcinomas, which develop from the gland cells in the mucosa. Less common types of stomach cancer include Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), Neuroendocrine tumors (including carcinoids) and some types of lymphoma are other, rarer types of cancer.

CBD in particular has been shown to promote cell death in gastric cancer in lab studies. There are some cases of people using THC-rich formulas to treat their stomach and bowel cancer. However, there is no definitive evidence that CBD can help treat any particular types of cancer as of yet.
