About Cancer and CBD

As the body needs new cells, the body ”manufactures” them through a process called cell division. When cells become old or damaged, they die and new cells replace them. Cancer develops when this process becomes maladapted, causing cells to become increasingly abnormal, old or damaged. These cells survive when they should die while new cells form where they are not needed. These excess cells can divide without stopping and may form masses of tissues, commonly called tumors.

Common symptoms of Cancer include:


Cancer can start anywhere in the body, and symptoms vary according to where it manifests. People with cancer typically suffer from one or several of the following most common symptoms:

  • Persistent cough or blood-tinged saliva

  • A change in bowel habits or urination

  • Blood in the stool

  • Unexplained anemia (low blood count)

  • Breast lump or breast discharge

  • Lumps in the testicles

  • Persistent lumps or swollen glands

  • Unexpected weight loss, night sweats, or fever

  • Non-healing sores

  • Persistent back pain, pelvic pain, bloating, or indigestion

How COULD CBD support and supplement Cancer treatment ?

Research suggests that the cannabis plant compounds, THC and CBD in particular, can help cancer patients by slowing or stopping the growth of cancerous cells as well as help them deal with the symptoms of cancer treatments like chemotherapy (symptom management). Please note that none of the research is currently supported by clinical trials, whether in the United States or any other country. Scientists hypothesize that the anti-cancer effects of CBD are due to: 

1) Its ability to cause cell death and necrosis


Scientists suggest that CBD may work similarly to chemotherapy by “programming” cancer cells to kill themselves off while at the same time causing a toxic environment that leads to traumatic cell death (necrosis). In other words, CBD may indirectly kills cancer cells.

2) Its ability to stop cancer from spreading


CBD has potential anti-metastic effects (as shown in animal models), halting the cancer cells ability to spread . Scientist also found that CBD targets GPR12, a protein which may be involved with metastatic cancers.

3) ITS ABILITY TO REDUCE TUMOR SIZE


Another way in which CBD helps to treat cancer, is by starving tumors of their blood supply while simultaneously killing them off through various pro-angiogenic signals.

4) Its ability to reduce tumor growth


CBD has the ability to regulate Id-1 expression - the gene thought to regulate tumor growth. This means that CBD not only potentially helps to prevent and treat cancer, but that it can particularly help control aggressive tumors through the down-regulation of aggressive tumor growth.

Recommended CBD product types and dosage for Cancer

CBD PRODUCT TYPES


It's important to use a high-quality CBD products and do so regularly, when using CBD to help with a medical condition such as cancer.

  • Sublingual Treatments & Ingestibles


    Because of the synergistic effect of other cannabinoids (known as the entourage effect, it is recommended to use a full-spectrum CBD product. For daily prevention and maintenance we would recommend using full-spectrum full-spectrum CBD oils or capsules for systemic and long-lasting effects.

CBD DOSAGE


CBD for cancer is very personal and dependent on the type and severity of symptoms. Although dosage guidelines have not been studied specifically, scientist have found that 1 mg / kg of body weight per day of CBD is shown to be effective for chemo-preventive effects. If relief is not felt at this dosage, the amount of CBD can be increased by 10 mg per day until the desired effects are achieved.
