Does medical marijuana interfere with immunotherapy?

Darla hauck

I don't know, but I didn't get any guidelines to avoid alcohol or anything else (even illicit drugs, though that wouldn't have applied to me). I did read something in the clinical trial contract about checking with the study nurse before getting a flu shot, but not till after the fact.

This topic has very little data, but there was a retrospective study of 140 patients from Israel presented at ESMO in 2017. I will let you read the information for yourself and draw what conclusions you may!!! https://www.oncologynurseadvisor.com/home/cancer-types/general-oncology/... https://oncologypro.esmo.org/Meeting-Resources/ESMO-2017-Congress/The-ef...

Hi Darla, like Ed W. just said, here in America theres very little studies on Marijuana (THC) and cancer/cancer drugs, on a federal level its considered a bad, bad drug and to get study funding is VERY HARD...but, as weve witnessed in recent years, laws are changing & maybe soon researchers can have the funding "Green Light" (pun intended) to see if it helps or interferes with cancer drugs, we know it helps with side effects!! Atleast i do, CBD/THC oils...wait and see!!
