There is a need for alternative and effective approaches to manage the cancer-related symptoms experienced by survivors. This cross-sectional study describes the current state of cannabis use and how cancer survivors use cannabis during their cancer management to alleviate their cancer-related symptoms including use pattern, product type, and mode of delivery of cannabis. Nearly half of the survivors had used cannabis at some point in their lifetime. Among survivors using cannabis, about half said their cannabis use had increased since cancer diagnosis. The most common types of cannabis products used were dry-leaf cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) oil, and cannabis candy.
