Lung cancer, spreading to liver, kidneys. Taking chemotherapy. Will medical marijuana help?

Hello. My gran has lung cancer (it s incurable so all they can do is treat. Can t have anymore radiotherapso it s back to chemo ) and the cancer has spread to her liver. She s in increasing pain but some of her meds are bad for her troubled kidneys. I was wondering if using marijunuana brownies as pain management would have adverse effects on her liver cancer , lungs or kidneys.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It wont hae effect on these organs but it will have effect on her brain and mind. This is not advisable painkiller tool and there are some other more official oainkiller which can help in such cases. SO just consult your doctor about pain managment and dont use any unproved substances.
Wish you good health. Regards
