I'm writing on behalf of a friend who's too sick to sit at her computer right now. She began chemo three weeks ago, and the nausea has hit her HARD. So hard she can barely get out of bed, can't keep anything down, and the traditional anti-nausea meds aren't helping. She's had it suggested to her that she talk to her family doctor about marijuana, but she grew up with a mother who used pot daily and left her to raise her little brother on her own. The idea of using pot horrifies her, but she feels helpless and out of options. There's so much information it's difficult to sort through it all. Has anyone used it for nausea relief or looked into it? Would using it in medical fashion require her to get high, or is there a form of it without that side effect?
Many thanks for any info!
