CBD for Cancer

Although there are many studies that are being carried out to determine the effectiveness of CBD as a therapeutic aid for cancer, preliminary results show that cannabidiol can kill cancer cells. Recently, scientists reported that CBD slows the growth of some cancer cells or causes their death. Studies that have been conducted using lab dishes and animals suggest that CBD can also reduce the spread of some types of cancer. In fact, there are clinical trials on the use of CBD to relieve cancer in humans. Nevertheless, more studies are necessary to establish the effectiveness of CBD in improving the symptoms of cancer.

How CBD Fights Cancer Cells

CBD gravitates towards the CB2 receptors in the spleen, which is home to the immune system. CB2 is responsible for activating the immune system. CBD is biomimetic to the body’s anandamide, which naturally activates CB2 receptors. That means the body can use CBD and anandamide interchangeably. As such, when an injury, illness, or stress demands more from anandamide than the body can produce, the mimetic CBD is activated. If there is transitory stress, the therapeutic aid will be transitory. If this demand remains, like in the case of cancer, the therapeutic aid provides a sustained pressure of modulating agent on a homeostatic system.

Basically, once CBD gravitates towards the CB2 receptors, it seeks out cancer cells and destroys them. In fact, studies have shown that CBD has the ability to destroy cancer cells directly without the involvement of immune intermediaries. That’s because CBD can hijack the lipoxygenase pathway to inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors directly.

Effects of Using CBD For Cancer Symptom Relief

The major advantage of using CBD to relieve cancer is the fact that it doesn’t have the side effects associated with strong chemical medications and it won’t make the patient loopy or “high”.  Even more so, it has been proven to have an array of positive effects on cancer patients.

These include:

  • Triggering the death of cancer cells
  • Preventing unhealthy cell division
  • Preventing the growth of tumors in the new blood vessels
  • Reducing the spread of cancer cells throughout the body
  • Speeding up the waste disposal mechanism of the body or autophagy which can cause the death of cells.

All these effects are caused by locking off of CB2 receptors with the use of CBD.

More studies are needed, but it is ALMOST confirmable that cannabidiol can be used as an effective complementary cancer therapeutic aid.

Things To Consider Before Taking CBD

Though it’s evident that CBD can be helpful to cancer patients, medical decisions should be made on the basis of the needs of each patient. Therefore, CBD should only be used after consulting the doctor. Although there are no side effects from taking CBD, if anything arises, your physician will be aware and can monitor you and your use of cannabidiol products.
