I can attest to this personally. I often smoke before meals whenever possible. Dinner and breakfast on the weekends are the best time to dine high. Congrats to the patients on their positive effects from MMJ use.

Patients who suffer from a lack of appetite should try different strains of marijuana known to increase hunger. Many Indica strains will do the trick and relieve nauseousness as well. Many mid-wifes used to prescribe it for pregnant mothers who had severe cases of morning sickness. It's good to see the effects are being studied and tested so it can be used by any patient who would like to see for themselves.

These patients are so lucky that we live in such a progressive society. I haven't had cancer but I have had some illnesses and surgeries. A lot of the medication like percacete was terrible and made me nauseous. I would have much rather had an alternative like a THC pill in concentrated dosage. Also, I think the pills they gave me were bad for my organs. The percasete made me feel wired and not hunger which is totally contrary to my nature. When I used marijuana I had the opposite effect. In fact, I ended up taking the pain and giving the nasty percacete away.

That's great news for the cancer patients. I have seen people go through cancer and it is a terrible thing. Anything that would help a person with cancer is something good. Glad to hear this!

That is so good for the cancer patients, congrats. I do not have cancer but in '06 I watched my mother undergo chemotherapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, and she did suffer from the bad nauseous, lack of appetite & taste in foods, body pain and difficulty sleeping (plus two hernias from before) so, she would have totally benefited from this. I wish another cancer patient would have introduced her to Medical Marijuana, she probably would have been more acceptive to the information.

Cannabis is perfect for these wasting syndromes like cancer and HIV/AIDS where a patient who is normally too sick to eat now finds the ability through good old munchies. Common sense really

Awesome, good news for cancer patients. I can't imagine not even being able to enjoy food, let alone suffer without having an appetite. I'm so glad to hear this. Kudos to those who take the time to do important research such as this.

When a patient is suffering from cancer anything that will potentially make their life more comfortable and give them relief for whatever, if it's the ability to sleep or the need to eat, then give it to them. Isn't having the big C bad enough.

Don't have cancer but I've got a friend who does and she really needs this just to keep her alive, she don't eat otherwise. I know how I get with my extreme pain there are days without the munchies i wouldn't consume anything. so the world needs to look at the good it does for those cancer patients, I mean shit they are suffering bad enough let em have something that will ease their troubles.
