Have lymphoma. Consuming cannabis. Increase melatonin levels?

they say cannabis increases melatonin levels in the body. I have lymphoma and have read that increased melatonin is bad because it benefits the immune system, and as a result benefiting the lymphoma. Is there any truth to this logic? i can understand how smoking it would be harmful to ones health but what about consuming cannabis?

Cannabis increases level of melatonin. The relation of melatonin with immune boost up has been studied. There are some results supporting its immune enhancing property but definite proof is lacking. Anyway relation of lymphoma and melatonin level are difficult to say. No comments on the harmful effects are possible.
