How to Use CBD Oil for Cancer?
Cannabidiol gives hope to patients with cancer. It not only alleviates the pain associated with the disease but also slows down the course of the disease.
Medical hemp prevents the spread of cancer in the body by killing cancer cells. This is a very interesting topic among scientists.
Cancer is any cell in the human body that undergoes uncontrolled growth and threatens our tissues. Cancer cells, due to their ability to grow, become immortal. They can also migrate and attack tissues previously occupied by other types of cells. That is why they are so dangerous for the body.
Cancer is usually treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which can cause inflammation and destruction of healthy tissue. The main problems associated with this disease include pain, loss of appetite and nausea.
Is CBD the same as marijuana?
Answer: No. CBD oil is a hemp extract from legal hemp strains containing a cocktail of lifesaving cannabinoids, especially cannabidiol CBD. THC is found in legally permitted homeopathic concentrations of up to 0.2%.
To date, cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 400 cannabinoids found in hemp. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not have a psychoactive effect (that is, it cannot cause the effect of drug intoxication) and does not develop an addiction at any dose and duration of use.
The only “sin” of cannabidiol (CBD) is that it is extracted from a “bad” plant, from hemp. But about a year ago, publications appeared that CBD can be obtained from other plant sources, for example, from Humulus lupulus (ordinary hop) and Línum usitatíssimum (seed flax), which can completely remove the issue of any association of cannabidiol (CBD) with marijuana.
Can CBD be used to treat cancer?
Studies show that the effectiveness of cannabidiol in combination with traditional therapy, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, increases its effectiveness.
CBD is the first non-toxic endogenous compound that can naturally stimulate the human body to fight cancer. Studies show that cannabinoids – cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinol (CBN) – are the most effective stimulants of the immune system and inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Can hemp prevent cancer?
There are currently no drugs that can be preliminarily used for cancer prevention, but interesting studies show that using CBD oil can reduce the chances of its development.
If CBD has an anti-inflammatory antispasmodic effect, helps with autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis and anxiety disorders, can its preventive use be effective before the disease occurs?
Can preventive use of CBD have a negative effect?
No. CBD interacts with cannabinoid cell receptors on its surface to activate and enhance the response of the nervous system. There are two cannabinoid receptors in the human body – CB1 and CB2. CBD oil has such an effect on them as our body reproduces naturally.
Conditions treated by CBD oil
CBD is used for the following diseases:
- nervous system diseases;
- dystonia and dyskinesia;
- Alzheimer’s disease;
- hepatitis C;
- skin diseases;
In addition, CBD oil goes well with hemp products:
- Hemp protein – cleanses and strengthens our body, it is an ideal supplement for vegetarians and vegans vegetable protein;
- Cannabis seeds are a varied and tasty food for the body and soul, it is ideal for vegetarians and vegans in a purified and unpeeled form;
- Cannabis cold-pressed oil – contains unsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids necessary for the proper functioning of our body, it helps to regenerate our tissues and organs, stabilizes the heart and digestive system;
- Hemp tea – soothes the nervous system and thus supports our immune system.
Is it legal to use CBD oil?
In November 2017, the Expert Committee of the World Health Organization on Drug Dependence (KELZ) concluded that cannabidiol in its pure form does not have the potential for abuse and does not cause harm, unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
In December 2017, the World Health Organization officially recommended the removal of cannabidiol (CBD) from the international lists of controlled substances.
In the summer of 2018, WADA (International Anti-Doping Agency) excluded CBD from the list of prohibited substances, while recognizing its exceptional properties in the rehabilitation of microtraumas and traumatic inflammations.
In December 2018, the U.S. Congress legally excluded industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances. And despite some confusion in the positions of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), cannabis CBD products can be purchased over-the-counter and even online in most of the United States (50 states) as if they were food additives.
How safe is CBD?
Over the past 30–40 years, more than 150 original clinical trials have been conducted in the USA, Great Britain, Israel, Switzerland, etc., confirming the safety of CBD. This is expressed in the absence of significant “side effects” (in the research process, there were no statistically significant contraindications, allergies or negative reactions, including for people with chronic diseases or in combination with various medications).
Cannabidiol (CBD) has a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which therefore begins to be more active in restoring order in the body, regulating homeostasis (optimal balance for functioning) at the cellular level, and ultimately affects the manifestations of diseases and problems caused by disorders of the nervous system activity, malfunctions of the endocrine system, inflammatory processes, immune disorders, etc.
Recommendations on the use and dosage of CBR oil
- Prevention and harmonization of body functions: 3 drops in the morning or evening;
- Tension, stress, anxiety: 3 drops in the morning, 3 drops in the afternoon and 3 drops in the evening;

- Serious and chronic problems, in chemotherapy and after that, coordination and updating of body functions: 4 drops in the morning, 4 drops in the evening; after a week – 5 drops in the morning and 5 drops in the evening; after 14 days – you can continue to increase the dose.
Note: the dosage is very individual and you should exercise caution when increasing the dose. Usually, you should start with small doses, observe how the body reacts, and then increase the number of drops.
