CBD for Internal Cancers?

When it comes to internal cancers, there are as many studies on THC being as beneficial as CBD. Yes CBD helps but those studies do not prove that CBD with the full cannabinoid profile will not work better.. make sense?

Its like saying vitamin c is good for you, but then extracting vitamin c from an orange and discarding the rest. yes it will benefit you and show in studies, but the whole orange might well have a overall better health impact. That does make sense right?

I have made posts about cannabinoids in the past but here are just a few that are already proven to have dramatic health benefits.cbd and the Endocannabinoid System

Cannabinol – CBN

CBN is a mildy-psychoactive cannabinoid known as the sleep-inducing part of the cannabis plant. It increases the drowsy and dizzy effects of THC. High-CBN strains are being used as sedatives and sleep-aids for those suffering from insomnia. Some studies have been exploring the potential use of CBNs in the treatment of osteoporosis.

Cannabichromene – CBC

CBCs are being evaluated for their anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Research has shown that CBC’s anti-inflammatory activity is superior to those of anti-inflammatory drugs. CBCshave also been identified to have a significant anti-depressant effect, contributing to the overall mood-elevating properties of cannabis. Finally, CBCs may also increase the viability of developing brain cells, a process called neurogenesis. Lack of growth in the hippocampus part of the brain during old age is believed to contribute to disorders such as Alzheimer’s and depression.

Cannabigerol – CBG

CBG has been somewhat understudied but research has shown that CBGs have a profound effect on the body’s cannabinoid receptors. Thus they work with other cannabinoids to provide overall synergy and balance. CBGs have been found to have an anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect, as well as reduce pain and ease inflammation. CGBs are also known to increase the fluid drainage from the eye and reduce the amount of pressure when treating glaucoma. Industrial hemp strains have been found to have the highest levels of CBG when compared to other cannabis sativa strains.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin – THCV

THCV can be most commonly found in the cannabis varieties indigenous to central Africa. THCV is being researched as a treatment for metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity. Research has shown that THCV helps produce fat loss and results in an increased sensitivity response to insulin

Be careful about selective information, you are an individual, your medicine should be individual too.

Studies that show Cannabis Can Cure Cancer

It’s a difficult thing, to stand up and shout “cannabis cures cancer!” There are in reality so many types of cancer and so many types of person that little can be declared certain.

It ‘is’ quite clear tho that there are many positive studies and many positive examples of cannabis indeed having this effect on some patients with some cancers and this has led to more and more studies over the last decade or so than ever before.

Below is a compiled list of studies published on the internet that showed that cannabis ‘can’ cure cancer in certain situations. The list is categorised by the type of cancer being researched in the study and only includes articles from credible scientific resources.
