We are at war against cancer.
Almost everyone you meet has been or will be affected, one way or another, by this devastating disease. Research is yet to find an end-all cure for this illness. However, there are many preventative measures that one can take to reduce the risk of getting cancer, and the science around the anticancer properties of cannabis is continually growing.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It’s a powerful chemical compound in marijuana, and is one of the strongest medical components found in this plant.
Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not produce a psychoactive effect. Its medical value has been used to treat illnesses such as epilepsy, inflammation, menstrual cramps, spasms, and MS.
There is extensive research around how cannabis, specifically CBD, interferes with the spreading of tumors. Numerous medical reports indicate that CBD inhibits the metastasizing process that causes cancer to spread throughout the body. People undergoing the treatment of chemotherapy commonly experience rapid weight loss, loss of appetite, and vomiting. Cannabis has been repeatedly shown to help these people against the bodily deterioration that often accompanies chemotherapy.
All it takes is one Google search to bring up hundreds upon thousands of studies and exhaustive research around the health benefits of cannabis. What this means is that cannabis may be the cure the we have been looking for.
