Do.'t waste yur time: This is nothing supported by science. So you do not need to pay any attention to it. Just stick with your doctors treatment plans and avoid getting into any such distractions.

Not for treatment: There is no data to show that any substance from marijuana is useful as a treatment for the disease. However, as use for control of nausea/vomiting or for use as a appetite stimulant there is ample data.
