Human-made and FDA-approved cannabinoid medications like dronabinol and nabilone have been used by cancer patients to control chemotherapy-related nausea for years. These drugs work by affecting the part of the brain that controls nausea and vomiting. There are many different treatments available to control chemotherapy nausea, but medical marijuana is among the well regarded. Some people dislike the side effects, however, which can include feeling high, dizzy, and depressed.
