Cancer - CBD (Cannabidiol) Health Benefits


Studies are showing that CBD may be a powerful anti-cancer drug…

Cancer is the name given to the growth of abnormal cells that grow to invade healthy cells in the body, these abnormal cells can spread and invade surrounding tissues. Currently there are more than 200 types of cancer.

1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime.

The pain generated by cancer can be mild to severe and can come from the specific cancer origin. As a cancerous tumour grows, it may put pressure on nerves, bones or organs, causing sometimes severe pain.

CBD as potential anti-cancer drug...

In recent studies, and some that are still ongoing, there has been evidence that shows CBD could help in the prevention of cancer tumours. Although in its early stages of research the evidence suggests that the endocannabinoid system could play a large role in helping to fight off cancer.

“...cannabinoids possess anti-proliferative and proapoptotic effects and they are known to interfere with tumour neovascularization, cancer cell migration, adhesion, invasion and metastasization...” Read more here...

CBD has cytostatic, apoptotic, and antiangiogenic effects…

Because of the higher positive effects CBD has in-Vitro and in-vivo compared to THC has led researchers to validate CBD as a future beneficial cancer fighting drug. Cannabidiol (CBD) really does serve to counteract the formation of tumours (antitumourigenic).

Here are some of the main positive actions of CBD related to cancer:

- It triggers the death of cells through apoptosis mechanism.
- It helps in stopping the division of cells.
- It helps prevent new blood vessels not to grow into tumours.
- It also reduces the probabilities of cancer cells from spreading over a person’s body.
- It is also beneficial in speeding up internal cell’s waste disposal machine, which is a process referred to as autophagy. This process may lead to dying of cells

Does CBD cure cancer?

Although there is little evidence to support (as yet) CBD (Cannabidiol) as an actual potential cancer cure there are a number of individual cases where the cancer patient has stated that by using CBD regularly it has helped to cure their cancer altogether.

Below is a video of a woman who suffered from ‘Terminal Stage 4 Lung Cancer’ – the woman claims that using CBD helped clear her lung cancer:


Based on recent studies, research and personal testimonies CBD (Cannabidiol) is an effective cancer treatment drug and as it has no know side effects one that can be used safely. Always consult your doctor before using any drugs including CBD.
