Cancer
The treatment of cannabis helps oncologists cope with the side effects of treatments and improve quality of life by relieving nausea, encouraging appetite, sleeping, mood improvement and pain relief. Laboratory studies and testimonies of some patients also indicate an improvement in the course of the disease.
We provide professional counseling for treatment and strains to our patients, in a set meeting with one of our registered nurses in our clinic.
