How Cannabis Oil Stops Cancer Cell Growth
Research into how cannabis oil stops cancer cell growth is ongoing but increasing evidence is out there as more people come forward to tell their success stories. If you have cancer and realise that your life is in danger, you have nothing to lose by choosing cannabis oil as one your treatments.
Cannabis does scare some patients who think that it makes you high and causes addiction. This is due to the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. But there is another cannabinoid within the plant called CBD (cannabidiol) which has innate medicinal properties and does not give you that high. In this article we will look at how THC and CBD can both stop cancer cell growth.
CBD and THC Can Weaken Cancer Cell Growth
If you choose a pure, high quality cannabis oil, you are boosting your health and your immune system anyway, which is a good thing for cancer. As we know, cancer cells are rogues that keep on reproducing, never dying, spreading throughout the body and jeopardising the immune system. THC and CBD can assist the body to change this. When you take THC oil, it attaches itself to the cancer cell, where the cannabinoid receptors are situated, and causes an increase in ceramide fusion which makes the cancer cell die. Ceramides are waxy lipid molecules found in cell membranes that induce programmed cell death. This is what normal cells are supposed to do.
So taking cannabis oil changes the way the cancer cell works and forces it to die early. And if you take cannabis oil for a long time, at regular times daily, you constantly pressurise the cancer cells to go through programmed death.
What Exactly is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil is removed from the flowers of the cannabis plant using specific solvents. It is a powerful form of cannabis and is made up of numerous cannabinoids, two of which are the CBD and THC oils. These are used in cancer research and treatment. CBD is a healing substance that does not cause a high while THC can also heal but does have psychoactive properties. It must therefore be used carefully and in tiny doses for medical reasons. CBD, on the other hand, can be used in larger doses and has been know to cure many common and life-threatening ailments.
The best way to take the cannabis oil if you are a cancer patient is to use suppositories or to vaporise it into the lungs for fast-acting treatment. It can also be taken as a tincture in a base oil such as coconut oil, or as capsules. Some people use it topically as a cream to treat skin cancer and other aches and pains.Cannabis oil has been used for centuries by various tribes, originally from Asia, as both a drug to stimulate the mind and as a panacea. Did you know that cannabis oil has cured asthma, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, gout, glaucoma, epilepsy, arthritis and many more chronic diseases?
How Does Cancer Work in the Body?
No one really knows why some people get cancer and others do not. Getting cancer has a lot to do with lifestyle and genetics: a healthy immune system can better avoid cancer but if it is in your family, sometimes even a healthy lifestyle won’t save someone. But taking cannabis oil will maintain the healthy balance that the body should be able to maintain to avoid disease. Our bodies consist of millions of cells which divide and multiply to make new tissue. Some innate genes manage the cell’s capability to divide and multiply while other genes do the opposite and stop the cell from doing this.
When someone gets cancer, these genes do the opposite from what they are supposed to be doing: the cells do not die naturally and keep on multiplying until tumours form. Tumours press into the healthy cells around them and, in a process called metastasis, these cancerous cells spread into veins or lymph nodes and the dividing process begins over and over.
Cannabis Oils Can Slow Cancer Cell Growth
Taking cannabis oil can stop the cancer cell from spreading and forming tumours as it causes programmed cell death, a natural process within healthy cells.
