Research into cancer and the use of cannabis oil is showing more and more that yes, cannabis oil relieves cancer symptoms. The symptoms are not the cancer, but addressing the symptoms already strengthens the immune system. The patient then feels better physically, physiologically and mentally. Most cancer patients are recommended surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy – or all three. And they go that route due to ignorance and fear, and the desire to listen to doctor and get better. But there are alternative ways to heal the body and these need to be talked about. Cannabis oil is a natural remedy and has been used to treat cancer symptoms for years. It is not talked about because cannabis is illegal in many countries. Cannabis is not all bad.
Cannabis Oil and Relief of Cancer Symptoms
The cannabis plant comprises nearly 200 different chemical compounds called cannabinoids which have powerful healing qualities. The two most common cannabinoids, used for medical treatments, are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD is a potent antidote to pain and inflammation, nausea and vomiting, anxiety and depression – and has been used for decades to treat a variety of common and chronic ailments.
A CBD-infused cannabis oil can relieve cancer symptoms. THC, on the other hand, is illegal in many parts of the world due to its psychoactive properties. It has been abused by recreational drug users and has been the root of addiction for many people. However, THC is a wonderful healing medical therapy which, if used responsibly, can treat cancer symptoms.
CBD Relieves Cancer Symptoms
It is up to the patient to decide whether they want to take cannabis oil to relieve their cancer symptoms. Taking CBD will relieve nausea and vomiting, pain, insomnia, lack of appetite, moodiness and anxiety or depression. While taking the CBD, it will also be working on the cancer cells themselves. The CBD is attracted to endocannabinoid receptors in the body, part of the innate endocannabinoid system that keeps the immune system strong. CBD clings to CB2 receptors in the spleen – the core of the immune system. The cannabinoids go out and kill cancer cells – they force these unnatural cells to commit cell suicide and they also prevent the cancer cells from forming tumours. CBD is able to assist the body to protect its own endocannabinoids. This in turn keeps the immune system strong and fighting disease.
Phytocannabinoids supercharge the body’s own Endocannabinoid System by amping up the response to demand from the immune signaling system in two modes of intervention: one, of course, is in bonding with the cannabinoid receptors; the other is in regulation of innumerable physiological processes, such as cannabinoid’s powerful neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory actions, quite apart from the receptor system. It is interesting to note here that the phytocannabinoids and related endocannabinoids are functionally similar, but structurally different. As noted above, anandamide and 2-AG are eicosanoids while THC and CBD are tricyclic terpenes. [https://patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com/how-cannabinoids-kill-cancer-dennis-hill/]
How Does the Endocannabinoid System Work?
Remember that the endocannabinoid system is responsible for protection of the nerves, the nervous system and the immune system. It ensures a constant flow of information between cells and nerves, between the immune system and central nervous system. This ensures our health – mentally, physically and emotionally. Endocannabinoids originate in nerve cells and when the body is out of balance, or disease is threatening, the body needs the endocannabinoid system to bring the immune system back into a healthy state of homeostasis. It therefore fits that phytocannabinoids like CBD can be used to take on the role of endocannabinoids and help the body fight disease.
THC Also Works to Relieve Cancer Side Effects
THC can also be used to relieve cancer symptoms – this cannabinoid may make you high, but many patients take it as a suppository and it works faster, negating the high effect. The THC forces cancer cells to commit suicide and does not affect any normal cells. Chemotherapy unfortunately affects all cells and patients suffer all kinds of uncomfortable side effects. It is vital that cancer patients take their cannabis regularly and in small doses. It may take time for the patient to feel or see any proof that the CBD or THC is working but it does work, so do persevere!
