Fighting cancer with cannabis

Until recently, cannabis has mainly been known as a psychotropic and psychoactive substance. The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes has its origins in antiquity. In the 50s, the first studies conducted on cannabinoids showed its anti-tumor properties. Nowadays, cannabis is officially recognized in some US states as a pain reliever that increases appetites and reduces sleeplessness in cancer patients.
