Does THC or CBD cure breast cancer?

The simple answer to the question: “Does THC or CBD cure cancer?” is in a resounding No. Neither of them do.

Following this the questions then arises. “Can either of them help someone with cancer? The answer to this question can not be given until one can establish what a person means by “help”.

Consider the following:

Drinking a glass of water helps for cancer. Taking a walk in fresh air helps for cancer. Do any of those cure cancer? No they don’t. But do they help? Yes they do.

There are cases where THC has been shown to cause problems, like making the cancer grow faster after the body has built up a resistance to THC. Below you will find some studies relating to breast cancer and tumor growth.

When Science Becomes Important

In a study done and published in on March 15, 2005, it was shown that exposure to marijuana either recreationally or medicinally may increase the susceptibility to and/or incidence of breast cancer as well as other cancers that do not express cannabinoid receptors and are resistant to Delta9-THC-induced apoptosis. If science is of importance to you (which it is to me) you can read more on this here: Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol enhances breast cancer growth and metastasis by suppression of the antitumor immune response.

Here are some studies that show risks about THC that may be worth looking at:

Note the very specific difference between THC or Delta-9-THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive element in marijuana. CBD is non-psychoactive and has been proven to reduce tumor growth and many other benefits. There seems to be a difference in how different parts of the body react to cancer and cannabis, especially when it comes to breast cancer. When one embarks on this journey, research is imperative because no statement is absolute or specifically 100% correct. My conclusion is that Cannabinoids may help treat the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.

Other possible effects of cannabinoids may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory activity.
  • Blocking cell growth.
  • Preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors.
  • Antiviral activity.
  • Relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis.

Obviously one would like to avoid breast cancer, or any cancer for that matter, altogether. For me the key is to find a balanced way of living. And even more importantly to make sure the environment in your body is managed effectively through thought, belief and habits.

Does THC or CBD cure breast cancer? I believe balance is key to a long and healthy life.
Balance is key!

I found what this man says very interesting. Have a look and see what you think.

The Inside Story of Cannabidoil

What are the benefits of Canabidoil (CBD)? This video is a brilliant analogy of what CBD does to one’s body. After seeing this video on The Inside Story of Cannabidoil you will fully comprehend the effect in a, sort of, layman’s way.

We supply a top quality CBD oil called Meduca™ right here in South Africa. It is a nutritional supplement to assist the body restore its natural balance. To read more about Meduca™ please click here or click here to order now.

A pretty good multi-faceted look at Cannabis

Here is some great information in a pretty good multi-faceted look at Cannabis in The Cannabis Movie by Spirit Science. Thank you Spirit Science! This is for educational purposes only. We don’t necessarily endorse or agree with it all but it’s a great intro. I’ve been surprised at what I have found since private use of cannabis has been legalised in South Africa.

Meduca is a 100% natural full spectrum plant extract.

The Endocannabinoid System

The Miraculous Endocannabinoid System is a major bodily system and is a most recent & significant discovery of modern medical science.  Located in all the major organs of the human body, actually mammals, this system has been scientifically observed to be a key system that regulates almost every process in the body.

Powerful Communication & Regulation Mechanisms of the Endocannabinoid System

The Endocannabinoid System does this through complex communication & regulation mechanisms, at cellular, tissue, individual organ level & in organ systems. Endocannabinoids, together with their counterpart Endocannabinoid receptors, are the chemical keys that open doors in your body to get its processes moving and to close the door when it needs to stop. They help maintain optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis.

More relevant to note, for those that wonder why they need to support their Endocannabinoid System nutritionally with Aruca™, is because it regulates the intensity of the activity of your cells, body systems and their processes. In a time when stress and chronic health conditions are common, and where the combination of environment

al and internal stressors are largely to blame, supporting a major bodily system with these important tasks can be very prudent when you want to provide your family the best quality of life. I believe that if I take better care of this bodily system, I can enhance the well being, experience & results of everything I do.

Diversity & Importance of Endocannabinoid Rec

eptors

In our illustration of the Endocannabinoid System you can see that its receptors are situated all over the body, even though certain areas are more densely populated. What is significant to understand is how this system communicates & gives feedback, which is totally unique & powerful. Through better communication and integration of all your bodily systems, the Endocannabinoid System can help to regulate your body’s ability to heal itself, enhance your daily performance & improve your quality of life. The vast diversity of receptor locations show just how important endocannabinoids are for day-to-day bodily function.

TECHNICAL:  The Endocannabinoid System is the only exclusive ‘retrogade neurotransmitter’ in the human body known to man. Dopamine signaling involves both retro and classical neurotransmittng, but this system is only retro, and suggests its importance in regulating, through feedback, synaptic signaling and balancing the systems. This is to say that if signaling is too much (from presynaptic to postsynaptic), the Endocannabinoid System can regulate that less signals need to be sent, and vice versa too, if signaling is too weak, it can regulate to increase signaling.

When the Endocannabinoid System is disrupted, any one of many things can fall out of balance. “Dysregulation” and under performance in this specific system can contribute to a wide variety of conditions, as this system is affected by all stressors on the body (internal or external).

Not having enough cannabinoids for the Endocannabinoid System to perform its function of highly complex regulation can affect your quality of your life, as well as the lives of your loved ones.
