CBD and Breast Cancer

with No Comments

 

The use of CBD oil in the treatment of chronic pain and anxiety are very popular with people who know a thing or two about CBD oil, but it isn’t limited to just that.

The research carried out to identify the effects of CBD oil in the treatment of breast cancer have brought about groundbreaking results that make to change the course of breast cancer and cancer treatments in general.

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2018 are:

  • About 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
  • About 63,960 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 40,920 women will die from breast cancer.

Before the CBD breakthrough, scientists have had so many challenges in their journey to find a suitable treatment or cure for breast cancer.

One of these challenges was the fact that they were able to affect the development of the breast cancer cells in mice with the use of antisense, a gene therapy that was able to destabilize the protein structure that was responsible for the aggressive acceleration of the growth and spread of cancer cells throughout a cancer patient. This gene therapy however, was highly unsuitable to be used on humans.

Apart from the antisense used during breast cancer research on rats, CBD is the only non-toxic and non-psychotropic agent discovered to be able to interact with the ID-1 protein which is the main factor that contributes to the spread of breast cancer in patients, deactivating it or at least slowing down its spread.

One of the reasons why CBD is quite ideal, if a not perfect match to treat or cure breast cancer is because apart from its low toxicity and non intoxicating properties, it only has little to no side effects that allow for long-term use with patients whose immune system must have been severely compromised as seen with the immune systems of patients in the final stages of cancer.

The speculation around the results from the treatment of breast cancer with CBD also showed that there were strong possibilities that it could be used to treat other forms of cancer.

Though there have been public testimonies from thousands of people from around the world who claim that extended use of CBD cured their cancer, there are still a lot of people who believe otherwise.

And even though it has been said to work well in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety and of course breast cancer, there still hasn’t been an official recognition or approval by the FDA.

CBD Oil and Cancer- Testimonials

One of the most striking testimonies regarding the impact of CBD oil on breast cancer  treatment is that of 44 year old Dee Mani in the UK, who refused chemo because she had a terrible experience in which chemo did nothing to help her sister who suffered from and died of cancer before her.

She went further to say that she considered chemo before she went online, did some research and found a lot of information on CBD oil and its uses.

She found a lump in her breast back in 2017 and was later diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, which is tagged the most aggressive and most deadly cancer form identified.

She claims she was cured by taking one drop of CBD oil every evening for a few months before she discovered that she was healed.

Despite her claims that it has cured her of cancer, there is no proof cannabis, or any of its compounds, can treat cancer in humans (both scans were taken during Ms Mani’s battle with cancer when she used cannabis oil, they show her cancer being slowly killed)

 

At the time of this self-medication, she said to have found a local dealer that was able to supply her with 22 British pounds worth of CBD oil a month.

Ms. Mani says that though she has been certified free of cancer that she will continue to take one drop of the miracle CBD oil till the day she dies.
