Cannabis Therapy explains how cannabis oil treats prostate cancer – so read on. Prostate cancer is by far the most common cancer found in men. A recent study shows that tissue surrounding the prostate contains cannabinoid receptors. Cannabis oil can stimulate these receptors and actively attack the prostate cancer cells.
In the Indian Journal of Urology, researchers made this point: The presence of pain in men with advanced prostate cancer is an immediate indication for aggressive management with analgesics, while adequate treatments that address directly the cause of the pain are pursued. Cannabinoids possess attributes that have impact in both cancer pain and prostate cancer pathophysiology. These compounds harbor analgesic properties that aid bone cancer pain, reduce opioid consumption, side effects, and dependence, as well as exhibiting anti-androgenic effects on experimental prostate cancer cells.
Cannabis oil has amazing anti-cancer properties. It is therefore not surprising that quality cannabis oil will effectively treat prostate cancer. Cannabis oil has the power to actively work to starve the cancer cell and inhibit its ability to reproduce.
How Cannabis Oil Treats Prostate Cancer
Cannabis oil has several anti-cancer properties. It is anti-emetic (decreases nausea and vomiting), anti-tumour (hinders the growth of tumours), analgesic (relieves pain), stimulates appetite, reduces stress and insomnia. This means that cannabis oil can be used to treat the symptoms of cancer, and to reduce the progress of the cancer.
Let us look at these one by one:
- Anti-emetic – CBD can work with the body’s endocannabinoid system, activating specific receptors in the brain that help to suppress nausea and vomiting.
- Anti-tumour – Cannabinoids can suppress tumours by forcing cancer cells to commit suicide. This also hinders the growth of cells and slows down the development of blood vessels that tumours depend on to grow. Cannabinoids can also stop metastasis, the breaking away of cancer cells from a tumour, to form a new tumour elsewhere in the body, using the blood or lymph system as their conveyer belt.
- Analgesic – Cannabinoids cling to CB1 endocannabinoid receptors in the central nervous system and in the peripheral nerve endings. They also cling to CB2 endocannabinoid receptors in peripheral tissue of the immune system. Cannabinoids reduce pain when they act on the spine and surrounding regions of the body, influencing pain pathways travelling up and down this central and peripheral nervous system. CBD and THC are both natural anti-inflammatory compounds – when CBD clings to CB2 receptors, it releases anti-inflammatory agents including serotonin and histamine – having an effect like that of morphine.
- Appetite stimulation – the body’s innate endocannabinoid system regulates many systems within the immune system, including appetite. THC is a great appetite stimulant in that it clings to CB1 receptors in the brain which could be linked to the perceptions of eating and getting rewards.
- Stress and insomnia – The endocannabinoid system can help to regulate moods and destroy any unpleasant, negative memories. CBD is a known anti-anxiety compound, calming people down and reducing stress. When cannabinoids work with the endocannabinoid system, they can induce better sleep patterns, so reducing insomnia and allowing the patient to calm down, eat well and sleep.
When CBD and THC connect to CB1 or CB2 endocannabinoid receptor sites on cancer cells, they can cause increased synthesis of ceramide which leads to cell death. Normal cells are not affected. The source of energy for the cancer to live is extinguished. The ceramide disrupts the digestive system within the cancer cell and impedes nutritional pathways. A cancer patient who takes THC and CBD regularly, over time, can keep metabolic pressure on these cancer cell death pathways.
