CBD, Cannabis, and Cancer
Cancer can be a scary, confusing thing for people what have received the daunting diagnosis. Your body is destroying itself and everywhere you go online shows scary chemotherapy stories. Science has given the world a lot of medications and technologies that put the body through extreme stress and pain. Thankfully, with the gracious help of mother nature, science has also given us something to help that: Cannabidiol (CBD).
What Is CBD?
CBD is one of two major components of cannabis (hemp or marijuana), the other being THC. The difference between the two is that CBD does not get you high. CBD extracted from the hemp plant is much more plentiful and pure. Being non-psychoactive makes CBD an excellent resource for just about everyone.
CBD intermingles with the body via the endocannabinoid system closely to bring relief for a wide variety of symptoms. The endocannabinoid system helps maintain and regulate sleep, pain, mood, appetite, pleasure/reward, and memory. Long story short, it’s pretty important.
CBD and Cancer
CBD is a powerful source to help reduce the symptoms brought on by cancer. Through research, it has been found that those going through chemotherapy find the most benefit from CBD. Chemotherapy typically causes loss of appetite, nausea/vomiting, and pain. CBD can help curb all of those.
Research, still in the early stages, has reported that CBD and THC can help to prevent cancer all together. Researchers have found that CBD and THC can potentially slow cancer cell growth with only a few human trials. More trials are being and will be done, so imagine the possibilities that more research could bring. Even better than that, some research has shown that CBD and THC combined can compete with the predictable radiation treatments.
No matter how much searching on Google you do, you won’t find much at all about what dosing of CBD looks like. Everyone is different and, as such, requires different amounts of medicine. This goes for traditional medicine as well as alternatives like CBD. The recommendation is that people trying CBD is to start with low doses. For people with more severe conditions, like cancer, consulting your doctor and keeping them up to date is essential.
Choosing a high-quality CBD is vital part in using it as an alternative to traditional medicines. NutraCanna uses all natural, organically grown hemp to provide the highest quality CBD possible. Why settle for anything less than an all health, no high, zero-THC product?
