Journal, Volume, IssueRadiology 1984;150(2):598-9.
Major outcome(s)THC was slightly superior to prochlorperazine
IndicationNausea/vomiting;CancerAbstract
MedicationDelta-9-THC

The authors tested the effectiveness of orally administered delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as compared to prochlorperazine for the alleviation of symptoms, such as vomiting and nausea, experienced by patients receiving radiotherapy. The test subjects rated the severity of their illness, as well as the extent of their subsequent moods, their level of concentration, their amount of physical activity, and their desire for social interaction. They chose the drug they preferred and recorded its side effects. The use of THC was slightly more beneficial than the use of prochlorperazine.
