I’ve constantly been a paranoid kind of person regarding my skin health. As a child and a teenager, I constantly covered up when I was out in the sun. I’ve been petrified of skin cancer for most of my life, and I’m sure it stems from my uncle who had cancerous tumors removed from his leg when I was around four years old. Yeah, I’m sure that’s what did it! The pain he had to deal with was pretty severe from what I could tell, and I never wanted to have to go through that if I could help it. If you’re genetically predisposed to something skin cancer, it doesn’t matter how cautious you are in the sun. It seems you’re just bound to get it because it’s in the deck life dealt you. At least, that’s how I feel ever since last year, when I was diagnosed with a type of skin cancer. Thank goodness it wasn’t extensive, but it still had to be treated. Because of the diagnosis, I looked up all kinds of alternative treatments, and that’s when I stumbled upon medicinal cannabis. As it’s been found to help with treating and even preventing cancer and reducing tumor size, the positive effects of marijuana are widespread and just awe-inspiring. Studying the positive changes medical marijuana can cause in cancer patients urged me into talking to my physician about trying it. So far, it’s helped to reduce the size of the tumors in my body. I am a massive proponent of medical marijuana now, as you might have guessed! If you ever develop any kind of skin cancer, I highly recommend trying medicinal marijuana as an alternative. Using it has truly made me so much more comfortable and life much more tolerable.
