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
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
3) ITS ABILITY TO REDUCE TUMOR SIZE
4) Its ability to reduce 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 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.
