Cannabis for Brain Cancer

Studies and Information on Cannabis for Brain Cancer

The location and size of cancerous brain tumors largely determine survivability and the various signs and symptoms likely to develop. As tumors grow, impairment increases. As a result, the whole body as well as the mind may be impacted.

Generally speaking, the lower in the brain structure the tumor is, the poorer the survival outcome. This is because the brain’s lower portions control most vital functions such as breathing and heart rate.
