Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, occurs when stomach cells continuously proliferate. It can affect various parts of the stomach, and the location of the cancer will have an impact on the prognosis and type of treatment available.


There are several kinds of stomach cancers, although adenocarcinoma is the most common of all. Adenocarcinoma affects the innermost lining of the stomach. Other forms of stomach cancer include carcinoid tumor, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, lymphoma, squamous cell carcinoma, small cell carcinoma, and leiomycosarcoma.


The elderly face a much higher risk of developing stomach cancer than any other population. The average age of stomach cancer patients is 68. However, the other risk factors for stomach cancer are: male gender, diet high in preserved and smoked foods, diet low in fruits and vegetables, cigarette smoking, family history of stomach cancer, and other medical conditions. Around 50% of localized distal gastric cancer is treatable, although the general survival rate for this condition is just at 30%.


Studies show that cannabis can help cancer patients in many ways. For one, the THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol) content in cannabis can cause cell death among cancer cells. Cannabis can also help cut off the blood supply of cancer cells, and prevent metastasis. Studies also suggest that THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, is more effective in higher doses.


If you know someone who needs cannabis for stomach cancer, these are the 5 best strains for treating this condition:

blackberry kush

  1. Blackberry Kush is a potent indica with as much as 18% THC and 0.4% CBD. The combination of its strong indica effects together with a high THC content make Blackberry Kush a powerful strain for knocking out pain caused by gastric cancer. Because of its potency, a little of this strain will go along way in alleviating not just pain but anxiety, stress, depression, and insomnia. Blackberry Kush has a delicious berry taste and aroma.

white widow strain

  1. White Widow is a hybrid, and one of the most famous strains in the whole world. This strain is the result of combining a South Indian Indica and a South American Sativa, giving you a hybrid that possesses some of the most therapeutic medical properties. Many patients suffering from different kinds of cancers rely on White Widow for its medical applications, as it’s effective in treating pain, insomnia, lack of appetite, stress, and depression. If you need a little help with any of these symptoms, White Widow will do the job for you.

god's gift marijuana strain

  1. God’s Gift might as well as be just as its name implies: a gift from the heavens especially for cancer patients. God’s Gift is a widely popular strain in California; its flavors are a mix of hash combined with citrus and grape. What makes this strain powerful for cancer patients is its strong THC content, testing for as high as 22% in some cases. God’s Gift can be used to treat a number of cancer symptoms especially pain, insomnia, stress, and depression. Patients usually medicate with God’s Gift during the night or evenings because of its potent sedative effects, but it’s also beneficial in stimulating your appetite particularly if nausea is making you queasy.

super lemon haze strain

  1. Super Lemon Haze is a legendary sativa strain. Although it has numerous medical applications, one of the primary benefits of Super Lemon Haze is its ability to fight gastrointestinal distress and problems. Super Lemon Haze offers a strong head high but is also one that will help you fight fatigue if battling the way to recovery is getting you down; it’s known for its energetic and active buzz. The THC levels of Super Lemon Haze usually test at around 15-22%, so you can be sure that this strain will give you the relief that you need.

harlequin strain

  1. Harlequin is the perfect strain for gastric cancer patients who don’t want to experience a strong psychoactive high. It consistently tests at 4-7% THC and 8-16% CBD, which means you won’t get a buzz but that doesn’t mean it isn’t working: Harlequin is one of the most powerful medicinal strains out there. Aside from having a mouthwatering flavor, Harlequin will help make you feel more relaxed while treating stress, pain, fatigue, depression, and inflammation. Its effects may be subtle, but Harlequin is helping you heal from within.
