Cannabinoids affects on Cancer
Enjoy these links to studies and research on cannabis and various medical condition. Supplementation with cannabinoids will have different effects for each person, we are not medically trained or qualified to give medical advice. We do not suggest that cannabis will treat or cure any particular medical condition, we merely present these links and research to aid your further investigation. These studies are conducted under strict supervision with high doses.
Cancer is not one disease, the title is a noun to describe a number of diseases that present similar symptoms, no two cancers are the same or will respond in the same manner.
However there is much excitement in the medical community over the possible actions of CBD against cancer. Human trials are woefully lacking but those that have been conducted, along with numerous animal studies, show us that CBD and its sibling cannabinoids have some surprising and powerful effects, that, in some cases, may present a real viable alternative to the conventional treatments available.
Animal studies greatly outweigh human but results show CBD holds great promise as a treatment against cancer in many forms, exhibiting pro-apoptotic and anti-proliferative actions in different types of tumours and may also exert anti-migratory, anti-invasive, anti-metastatic and perhaps anti-angiogenic properties.
Many studies also show that THC & CBD work best together potentiating each others actions.
What has been studied in greater depth, and is now widely accepted by the medical community, is the benefits CBD holds for those already undergoing chemotherapy. Many benefits are reported such as reduction in nausea & vomiting, appetite stimulation, pain relief, improved sleep, and also help with the anxiety and depression that can often come with such a diagnosis and invasive treatments.
CBD is non-toxic to the body, and can help in the healing of many mechanisms within the body that can bring relief in for many conditions. Much more research is needed regarding its potential role in the fight against cancer.
We will be addressing various conditions in greater detail in the coming months, but here are a few studies on the subject.

Investigation into the antitumor activities of other plant cannabinoids, i.e., cannabidiol, cannabigerol, cannabichromene, cannabidiol acid and THC acid, to assess whether there is any advantage in using Cannabis extracts (enriched in either cannabidiol or THC) over pure cannabinoids.
