Cancer

Cancer, abnormal growth of cells, is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Cannabis, at the moment, does not cure cancer, but health experts say it can significantly reduce the severity of symptoms associated with the condition.

Cannabis can also help fight nausea associated with chemotherapy treatment.
