Cannabis Mitigates Neuropathic Pain in Cancer Patients

Cannabis use mitigates chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain according to data published in the journal Therapeutic Advances in Medical Oncology.

Authors reported that the use of cannabis both mitigated, and in some instances, prevented oxaliplatin-induced neuropathy. Researchers noted that pain mitigation was “more significant in patients who received cannabis prior to treatment with oxaliplatin, suggesting a protective effect.”

“Oxaliplatin-induced neurotoxicity is a profound adverse effect which, according to the results of our investigation, may be mitigated and prevented by cannabis treatment."
