CBD Oil: A Potential Compound for Cancer Treatment

CBD Oil: A Potential Compound for Cancer Treatment

Cancer is a term used to represent more than a hundred chronic sicknesses due to abnormal cell growth and proliferation in the body. At present, it is one of the leading causes of death in many parts of the globe. Despite the continuous research activities and investment, still there is no cure for these diseases. People diagnosed with cancer are being treated by different therapies according to the degree of severity. Among these, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy are well known and most widely used therapies.

Cannabidiol is one of the various important cannabinoids found in the hemp plants and scientifically it has been proven as greatly beneficial for the people suffering from cancer. The results of different scientific studies conducted by world-renowned scientists have shown that CBD is essentially helpful to reduce the growth of cancer cells, and tumors. Moreover, CBD is also helpful to increase potency or to enhance the uptake of drugs for cancer treatment. So, there is significant potential to cure cancer with CBD by consuming it in the form of hemp tincture, and hemp oil.

Supportive Scientific Studies

Cancer diagnosis creates anxiety and fear in many people, as they must have to undergo treatments and may even have to face some side effects, as well. Research application of CBD has been proven as a good strategy to prevent cancer development, killing of cancerous cells, and retarding further growth of cancer. These studies have been conducted in both in vivo and in vitro conditions and results have demonstrated that the use of hemp oil and CBD offers excellent therapeutic benefits in a variety of ways for cancer treatment.

CBD causes hindrances of further spread of cancerous cells, so it is considered as a potential treatment to cure cancer. CBD has antiproliferative and antitumor properties, so it can easily interfere with the growth and proliferation of tumors. Moreover, it can easily migrate and reach the cancer cells and will stop their further adhesion to the body tissues and organs.

Furthermore, CBD is having a role to prevent the formation of new blood vessels in the surroundings of tumor areas so, it can greatly reduce the growth of tumors. Formation of new blood vessels from the previously existing is quite important for the growth, invasion, and metastasizing of tumors. If the formation of new vessels is controlled by some means, then it could produce excellent results to control the problem.

The use of CBD is also a complimentary beneficial therapy to manage cancer-associated symptoms and side effects of cancer therapies. CBD from the hemp plant is greatly helpful to reduce neuropathic pain, inflammation, and anxiety that are common symptoms related to cancer and its treatment.

A study published in 2019 has shown that both in vivo and in vitro studies focused on treating pancreatic cancer revealed that CBD is greatly helpful to reduce the growth rate of tumors, reduction of tumor invasion, and causes the death of tumor cells. However, effectiveness may be variable according to the selected dose, formulations, and mode of action, so cancer patients should only use CBD and hemp oil contents as prescribed by professionals.

Another study conducted in 2019 has indicated that along with provoking cell death, CBD also creates glioblastoma that is much more sensitive to the radiation and can greatly help to kill cancer cells. However, the generation of these substances does not cause any adverse effects on healthy cells.

The results of a scientific study conducted in 2018 have revealed that CBD significantly reduces the viability of cancer cells in the prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, leukemia, melanoma, glioblastoma, and neuroblastoma. Authors have proposed that CBD promotes apoptosis (cell death), of cancer cells by causing indirect activation of specific CB2 receptors.

Working of CBD Against Cancer

Another study that was published in the renowned journal of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics has shown that CBD is one of the potent and best inhibitors to reduce the growth of tumor cells in the breast. The death of cancer cells is induced by the activation of TRPV-1 receptors and by the indirect activation of CB2 receptors along with the induction of oxidative stresses. An elevation of oxidative stress directly kills the cancer cells and greatly improves the cell metabolism.

CBD causes regulatory processes by the hindrances of migration, proper invasion, and metastasis of the cancer cells. CBD achieves this control and regulation by the expression of the key genes involved in the process of cell proliferation. However, overexpression of the genes is also not a good approach and may cause further spreading of cancer.

CBD causes direct and specific targeting of golimas which are types of tumors present around the spinal cord, and brain. CBD also reduce the cancer-causing glial cells proliferation, their migration, and invasiveness to other body parts. CBD is targeting all these actions by various mechanisms and they are complex in nature, but scientists are continually trying to reveal the main story behind cancer treatment by using CBD. One of the best advantages is that no damage is caused to the healthy cells, they are left unharmed and functioning is not affected.

Most scientific investigations are of the point that the use of CBD and hemp oil is an effective and promising strategy for cancer treatment and has brought hope for novel therapies. However, scientists are also concerned that in some cases its use can provide potential support for tumor growth as it also has immunosuppressive qualities.

There are substantial levels of research activities supporting CBD as an adjunct, novel, and promising technique for cancer treatment. Moreover, it also helps to reduce the side effects related to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

The safety profile of CBD has also been approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), but users may experience side effects due to the interaction of CBD with other drugs and medications. A study published in 2017 has shown that CBD is highly safe for use, but in some cases, it may cause weight changes, tiredness, diarrhea, and appetite changes.

Use Wisely

Patients should be extremely careful before going through the CBD trail as the quality of the product is extremely important. Low quality of product or presence of any contaminants may cause adverse influences on the health. So, the specific CBD product or formulation should only be used after getting advice from health experts and professionals.
