Interest in cannabis oil treatments is rising and cancer patients are realizing that they can benefit from cannabis oil treatments. Cannabis oil comes in various blends and forms, depending on which cannabinoid extractions they contain. But most cannabis oils contain cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – or a combination of these two cannabinoids. CBD and THC are natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic chemical compounds, which also heal numerous other human conditions and diseases, including symptoms of these – such as cancer.
Cannabis Oil Treatments Work for Cancer Patients
Most of the research into cancer and cannabis oil and whether cannabis oil can treat cancer has been done in laboratories, on mice or in petri dishes. Scientists say that more research needs to be done with cancer patients to really know whether cannabinoids treat, or even cure, cancer. But doctors do know that medical cannabis is a viable option for sick people, and cancer patients can benefit from cannabis oil treatments.
Cannabis Oil Treats Cancer and Chemotherapy Symptoms
Cannabinoids can force a cancer cell to die, stop cancer cells from continually dividing and multiplying, and stop these cells from forming new blood vessels so as to feed tumours and make new tumours. This evidence still needs to be tested on cancer patients but, meanwhile, cannabis oil treatments can benefit cancer patients as it relieves the symptoms of the disease, and the chemotherapy. Chemotherapy drugs have been specially manufactured to hinder the constant dividing and reproducing of the cancer cell.The negative side of using chemotherapy, however, is that the drugs target every cell in the body, including the healthy cells, not only the cancerous cells. This makes it a very invasive and debilitating medication. Cannabis oil targets the cancer cells only, leaving the healthy cells alone. The body is therefore able to retain some immune health that can better fight the disease, or hold the cancer at bay.
Cannabis oil helps with all these symptoms:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of hair
- Chronic fatigue
- Inflammation of the mucous membrane, affecting the entire digestive system
- Loss of appetite and libido
- Bowel issues
- Memory loss and depression
Cannabis Oil is an Acceptable Cancer Therapy, Especially CBD
Cancer patients can therefore benefit from cannabis oil treatments and should remain aware that medical cannabis is still illegal in many parts of the world. CBD is an acceptable medical therapy because, unlike THC, it is non-psychoactive and can ease inflammation, pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, seizures, muscle spasticity and much more. THC is another fantastic healing chemical compound but has been scheduled as an unacceptable “drug” due to its psychoactive qualities. The irony remains that the combination of THC and CBD is the best antidote to any chronic disease when taken according to your doctor’s guidelines. CBD is anti-psychoactive and THC is psychoactive but when mixed, the THC is no longer psychoactive but a potent healer. Cancer patients worldwide have chronicled their experiences using cannabis oil as an alternative treatment. Every cancer patient has different needs and every cannabis oil has a different combination or strain of cannabinoids.
