What cannabis is good for cancer?

All cannabis with THC is good for cancer!
The cannabis plant has a multitude of medicinal applications. The oils made from it offer benefits to a wide range of symptoms.
The reason it works is because of a molecule group called “cannabinoids” which we have endo-cannabinoid receptors all over our bodies including the brain.

The cannabinoids, such as THC, CBD, CBN and 110 others, link up with the receptors and this in turn helps boost our immune system and also helps block certain signals in the brain, which can help with neurological problems and pain relief. In particular THC effects the cancer cells and causes them to die without killing healthy cells around it. But for the treatment to work the best possible it is also a good idea to go on a diet of no white sugar, fatty foods, no alcohol and lots of alkaline based foods and drinks, as cancer favours an acidic environment.
