Cannabis for Cancer Care Part 2 with Ally Schott and Rebecca Abraham

If you haven’t heard part 1, go back and listen to episode 56 as it gives a good explanation of the history and stigma that accompanies cannabis. Now on to part 2!

Is Cannabis Safe for Cancer Patients?

This was a question I definitely needed an answer to. It’s always important to know what you’re taking whether a medication or supplement, but even more so when we’re talking about something like cancer. The answer might surprise you!

What About the Ingredients in These Cannabis Products, Are They Clean?

For someone who takes here lotions, potions, and makeup very seriously, I needed to know about the ingredients in cannabis products.

Like every industry that wants to be taken seriously, the growers and manufacturers involved want their products to be legit. It’s probably not perfect, like most industries, but there is room for improvement.

We explored the inherent properties of cannabis like terpenes and flavonoids. And we talked about the types of symptoms cannabis is used to manage. Many women use it to manage pre- and post-menopausal symptoms like sleep, pain, mood swings, depression, and anxiety.

“Conscious consumption is the experience that cannabis provides beyond a high.”

Ally Schott

How Can You Use Cannabis (for cancer care and beyond)?

This was such a fun thing to learn about. I have never used cannabis in edibles. Apparently, it’s not that difficult to make your own flour or oil to infuse treats with.
