When you read the title of this article, did you immediately feel a sense of hope and assurance that a new discovery for Breast Cancer had been made? “The first non-toxic agent” is a direct quote from an article in the Molecular Cancer Therapeutics Journal. The research scientists were making a plea for an urgent need for effective and nontoxic therapies for aggressive and metastatic Breast Cancers.
They found that Cannibidiol (CBD) from the hemp plant, represents the first non-toxic agent that significantly decreases the expression of a protein involved in metastatic Breast Cancer cells, resulting in the down regulation of tumor aggressiveness.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent, opened the eyes of many Americans with his investigative report on Marijuana. As he dug deeper into the scientific literature and after having met real people with real results, he expressed the benefits of some of the properties of the hemp plant.
Now let me be clear that I am not encouraging the use of marijuana as a recreational drug, nor do I endorse the hemp plant that has active THC, the psycho-active chemical in the plant….(although there is science behind the benefit of THC and certain cancers) The most potent and active part of the hemp plant is what we call cannibidiol or CBD. CBD is one of 60 plant chemicals found in Hemp. A study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology in 2012 listed some of the general benefits of CBD.
- Reduces nausea and vomiting
- Suppresses seizures
- Reduces inflammation
- As an anti-oxidant it helps to reduce neurodegenerative disorders
There are literally cannabinoid receptors in the brain and on the T cells and macrophages of the Immune System. These receptors are activated by cannabinoids that are naturally inside the body or when they are introduced to CBD from an external source.
Specifically for Breast Cancer, CBD is a very promising therapy. Here are some of the effects CBD has on Breast Cancer:
- Cannabidiol is the most potent inhibitor of cancer cell growth
- Increases survival rate in advanced stages of Breast Cancer metastasis
- CBD inhibits Cox 2, an inflammatory and pain causing enzyme
- CBD possesses reduces migration of highly invasive cancer cells
- Causes apoptosis or death of Breast Cancer cells
- Reduces neurotoxic effect of chemotherapy
- CBD significantly reduces the primary tumor mass as well as the size and number of lung metastasis.
The National Cancer Institute also has several research articles about the anti-tumor and pain relieving effects of CBD. I encourage to take a look and read for yourself so you can build confidence in evidence-based natural medicines.
Please be advised that not all CBD oils are created equal. If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you know that I always do my research before I recommend a product or a diagnostic test. I prefer RSHO, Real Scientific Hemp Oil since it has a high quality and concentration of CBD, proven by independent laboratory tests. Because of their unique plant cultivation and cutting edge technology this industrial hemp has less than 1% of the psychoactive THC. It is legal and available to ship to all 50 states and over countries.
The CBD is available as an oil, in capsules, and even a delicious chewing gum. If you are on a healing journey and are searching for a gentle, non-toxic, yet effective therapy, you may want to consider including Real Scientific Hemp Oil in your protocol. Or, if you are like “Proactive Patty” and are looking to prevent Breast Cancer, CBD may support your goal of vibrant health.
