Using CBD for cancer and the increased use of the cannabis plant

Published Feb 26, 2019 00:44 a.m. ET

The benefits of using CBD oil for cancer patients are well worth looking into; if you or anyone you know suffers from the disease.

Studies are showing that CBD in combination with THC can slow down the growth or can even kill some certain cancer cells.

How Does CBD Fight Cancer?

The treatment for some types of cancer produces terrible side-effects. Perhaps this can explain the increase in cannabis use over other treatment methods. Chemotherapy, a treatment used to battle cancer will often leave a person with vomiting nausea and increased pain. The anti-inflammatory qualities that marijuana possesses may block cell growth. The use of medical marijuana in the treatment of cancer does not harm the healthy cells as chemotherapy does.

How to use CBD oil for Cancer

There are someways for patients to feel the benefits of using CBD. The most common form appears to be a paste or a drop. The formula is held under the tongue before being swallowed for the most effective mode of ingesting the oil.

Cannabis oil for cancer patients can be administered by vaporizing or inhaling. Other methods include capsules and edibles. If taking medications orally is not an option, the CBD lotions or patch will be fine and produce the effective results needed.


CBD Cancer Testimonials

Some CBD cancer testimonies warrant a mention here. A patient in Canada was diagnosed with a heart attack and required bypass surgery. A couple of years later the diagnosis of cancer was given to the woman. Radiation was suggested by her doctor. She researched the treatment did not find the side-effects to be bearable, and the procedure could leave her with permanent damage. She approached the doctor stating she would like time to consider her options. The doctor told her she had 2-4 months to live. The woman decided to start CBD oil treatment. She ingested and applied the oil topically. The difference to her skin was noticed within 48 hours. After two weeks of ingesting the oil, the pain she had been experiencing was almost gone. She increased her daily dose of the oil slowly. One year later after testing her, the doctor could find no sign of cancer.

This is a wonderful and amazing testimony on the benefits of using cannabis in the treatment and perhaps complete eradication of the cancer cells that can invade your body. While anecdotal, it and other similar stories will hopefully lead to more concrete research being done on cannabis-related products use in fighting cancer.

Recently there has been an increase in the research of RSO or Rick Simpson Oil for treatment of cancers. This oil lays its claims for aiding in the treatment plan for cancer. RSO is on the other end of the spectrum of the CBD oil for treating cancer. The oil contains high levels of THC. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that can cause the euphoric “high” feelings associated with the use of marijuana.

RSO is derived from the indica cannabis plant. This strain is known for its sedative effects. The theory is, that the body will heal while it is resting.
