Cannabis may help: But I don't recommend smoking it because like cigarette smoke it is very harsh to your lungs. Cannabis taken orally can sometimes add to the medications used to prevent nausea if they are not entirely effective. It may also improve your appetite if you lose it. You should talk to your oncologist about this.
