Anti-Cancer & Anti-Tumor Benefits
Researchers have been searching for a cure for cancer for decades, looking for a treatment option that doesn’t ravage the entire body. After spending well over $100 billion on cancer research, we still don’t have a cure. But the answer may have been hidden in plain sight, deep inside the cannabis plant.
Cannabidiol has been found to activate apoptotic pathways in breast cancer cells. Researchers are now exploring the cancer-fighting potential of Cannabidiol and the initial results are very promising
CBD is an antineoplastic agent, meaning it inhibits the growth and spread of tumors. Making it a promising potential treatment option for cancer patients of all kinds.
Cannabidiol for Pain Relief
“Cannabinoids may be superior to opioids in alleviating intractable pathologic pain syndromes.” – J. Manzanares
The cannabis plant is widely known for its analgesic properties. There are a few cannabinoids that help to relax muscles and relieve pain, but the most prominent is Cannabidiol.
Cannabis extracts have been found to relieve pain even more effectively than opioid painkillers. Opioid pain relievers are widely prescribed for pain, however they pose some serious health concerns and are extremely addictive.
Cannabidiol can be used to help treat acute pain, postoperative pain, chronic pain and neuropathic pain. This has made it a preferred pain management treatment for cancer patients, individuals with multiple sclerosis, migraine sufferers and people with phantom limb syndrome.
Neuroprotective Benefits of Cannabidiol
Marijuana may have a bad reputation, associated with brain-dead pot-heads and lazy slackers. Contrary to this common misconception, Cannabidiol actually helps protect our brain and cognitive function.
Inflammation is a leading contributor to virtually all known diseases, neurodegenerative disorders included. Because Cannabidiol acts as a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a potent antioxidant, it is a very promising treatment option for all neurodegenerative disorders.
One study by California Pacific Medical Center suggests CBD “turns off” the gene involved in the spread of breast cancer. These scientists found CBD inhibits ID-1, an action that prevents cancer cells from traveling long distances to distant tissues.
Improved Fracture Healing & Bone Strength
Alright, Cannabidiol is a powerful sleep aid, pain reliever, yields serious benefits for our cognitive health and even helps fight cancer. As if that wasn’t remarkable enough, it even helps us heal broken bones.
Studies show that CBD lead to an improvement in fracture healing, playing a critical role in collagen crosslinking. Meaning it helped fractured bones repair themselves more effectively.
Vitamin CBD – Antioxidant Benefits of Cannabidiol
We all know how important antioxidants are for our health, and we all know about Vitamin C and Vitamin E. What you probably didn’t know, is that Cannabidiol is a more powerful antioxidant than either Vitamin C or E.
The powerful antioxidant benefits of Cannabidiol are thought to be partially responsible for its ability to fight chronic inflammation and protect brain cells from reactive oxygen species.
