So I recently decided on what I want to get my mother for her birthday, and since her usual taste in earrings usually goes along with a full head of hair, I decided on weed, which I know she used to smoke back in the 70s. But the way I used to smoke it involved mixing it with tobacco for a joint to get it to burn, which is completely out of the question in this case.

What method of cannabis consumption is best for a cancer patient currently going through radiation and chemo?

Perhaps vaporizing? It is supposed to be far smoother and may help avoid unpleasant nausea or other sensations that I understand can be heightened during chemo. It is relatively expensive (see: volcano) but probably the most gentle and sophisticated intake method. I understand there are little vaporizing pens that come in pleasant designs and are discreet.

I have a Flowermate Pro V.5.0, a little handheld dry herb vape and that is more than enough. Got it for about $100. If you get a vaporizer, get one with temp control as certain cannabinoids are vaporized at varying temperatures.

Not sure how concentrated it was but when I ate a brownie once that shit fucked me up.

I had a zucchini weed bread once that tasted pretty good.

I would echo the posts about focusing on CBD. Look for higher in CBD and lower in THC as CBD is the one with the theraputic benefits while the THC is more concerned with the psychoactive component.

There are oils as well as CBD in capsule form as well. I would think one of those two methods of consumption might be best for someone undergoing such harsh medical treatment.

I would honestly just do some googling as there are a ton of resources on the impact of CBD consumption and cancer.

Here's the first source that came up for me.

Update: Thanks for everyone's input. I've talked to her and she explained she's in a different stage in the treatment where she doesn't experience a lot of pain but she is constantly tired and lacking in energy, so right now she doesn't want anything that could be a downer.

You can look into sativa strains of weed, if they are available to you, as those are energizing instead of relaxing. They also contain more CBD than THC. However, I think it's easier to take too much of sativa weed, so you would need to be careful about how much your mother takes.

I suggest you do some of your own research into the difference between sativa and indica strains of weed and what types would be useful for someone who suffers from cancer.

She might consider a strong sativa strain which won't have the undesired lethargy.
