CBD and Breast Cancer

Posted by Melinda Bloch on

Cannabinoids and Breast Cancer

Every year, more medical studies are being published on the effect of cannabinoids on various types of cancers. Many cancer patients around the United States have started trying cannabinoid therapies to help battle the side effects of chemotherapy such as pain, nausea and insomnia. About 1 in every 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer throughout the course of their life. This makes breast cancer one of the most prevalent health concerns among women in the world. Two years ago, the National Cancer Institute admitted that there was substantial evidence that cannabinoids had a direct effect on killing cancer cells. Since then, the number of cancer patients interested in pursuing cannabinoid therapies is growing. Now, over 74% of cancer patients are interested in learning more about how cannabinoids can help!

Breast Cancer Stats

 The American Association for Cancer Research published a study on how CBD may be able to induce cell death in breast cancer cells. The study suggested that CBD played in a role in the coordination of apoptosis and autophagy. The coordination of apoptosis and autophagy can help to target breast cancer cells and causes programmed cancer cell death. The study concluded that CBD should be considered for further research as a powerful antineoplastic agent. Antineoplastic agents travel throughout the body and destroy cancer cells. Most antineoplastic agents used today have side effects that can damage other parts of the body and healthy cells. Because there are no known major negative side effects to using CBD, the interest in CBD as a possible treatment for breast cancer continues to grow.

A study done in Italy attempted to find which cannabinoids had the most effect on breast cancer. They compared CBD, THCa, CBG and CBC and their ability for antitumor activity. The study suggested that out of all the cannabinoids, that CBD was the most potent inhibitor of cancer cell growth. The study suggests that CBG and CBC have similar anti-tumor properties, but was not as potent as CBD.

The entourage effect refers to the combination of cannabinoids working together. The idea is that the cannabinoids work synergistically and can maximize the therapeutic potential of each cannabinoid. CBD oil that is extracted from whole plant material contains a variety of cannabinoids along with being high in CBD. The Active CBD oil Gold - 25% will contain CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG, CBGa, CBDa and THCv. THC and CBD are the most widely studied cannabinoids, however recently more focus has been spent on learning the potential for all the known cannabinoids!
