CBD in the treatment of cancer

CBD

How does CBD oil help in the treatment of cancer and kill cancer cells?

Mounting evidence shows ‘cannabinoids’ in marijuana slow cancer growth, inhibit formation of new blood cells that feed a tumor, and help manage pain, fatigue, nausea, and other side effects. Cristina Sanchez, a young biologist at the Complutense University of Madrid, studied cellular metabolism when she noticed something special. She had been screening brain cancer cells because they grow faster than normal cell lines and thus are useful for research purposes. Cancer cells died every time they were exposed to cannabinoids.

Instead of gaining insight into how cells function, Sanchez had stumbled upon the anti-cancer properties of THC. In 1998, she reported in a European biochemistry journal that THC “induces apoptosis (cell death) in C6 glioma cells,” an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Subsequent scientific studies in several countries show that CBD and other marijuana derivatives, known as “cannabinoids”, are effective not only in the treatment of cancer-associated symptoms (nausea, pain, loss of appetite, fatigue), but also have a direct anticancer effect.

A team of Spanish scientists led by Manuel Guzman conducted the first clinical trial assessing the antitumoral action of THC on human beings. Guzman administered pure THC via a catheter into the tumors of nine hospitalized patients with glioblastoma, who had failed to respond to standard brain-cancer therapies. The results were published in 2006 in the British Journal of Pharmacology: THC treatment was associated with significantly reduced tumor cell proliferation in every test subject.

Dr. Sean McAllister, a scientist at the Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, has been studying cannabinoid compounds for 10 years in a quest to develop new therapeutic interventions for various cancers. Backed by grants from the National Institute of Health (and with a license from the DEA), McAllister discovered that cannabidiol (CBD), a nonpsychoactive component of the marijuana plant, is a potent inhibitor of breast cancer cell proliferation, metastasis, and tumor growth.

The ID-1 gene is active during human embryonic development, after which it turns off and stays off. But in breast cancer and several other types of metastatic cancer, the ID-1 gene becomes active again, causing malignant cells to invade and metastasize. “Dozens of aggressive cancers express this gene,” explains McAllister. He postulates that CBD, by virtue of its ability to silence ID-1 expression, could be a breakthrough anti-cancer medication.

CBD OIL 15% with a full spectrum of cannabinoids, relieves the painful side effects of chemotherapy.

Cannabidiol offers hope of a non-toxic therapy that could treat aggressive forms of cancer without any of the painful side effects of chemotherapy. McAllister’s lab also is analyzing how CBD works in combination with first-line chemotherapy agents. His research shows that cannabidiol, a potent antitumoral compound in its own right, acts synergistically with various anti-cancer pharmaceuticals, enhancing their impact while cutting the toxic dosage necessary for maximum effect.

In the medical science environment, the discovery that cannabinoids have anticancer properties is increasingly recognized as a breakthrough in anticancer therapies.
