Studies Show Using CBD Oil Daily Can Shrink Lung Tumors

Studies Show Using CBD Oil Daily Can Shrink Lung Tumors

Researchers and medical professionals have published a report in BMJ Case Reports that there is potential gain from using CBD oil daily for treatment of lung cancer. The study has shown that lung cancer tumors shrink after daily use of CBD oil without conventional treatment.

What is CBD? CBD or Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD is free from psychoactive components so it won't make you feel high. There are constant research on the health benefits of CBD concerning improvement of sleep, pain management, anti-inflammation, anti-seizures, anxiety and stress and its ability to improve skin health are among the health benefits.

How does CBD work in our body? CBD works by interacting with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is a system of receptors located throughout our body. The endocannabinoid helps regulate vital bodily functions such as mood, memory, behavior, pain, inflammation, sleep or appetite.

CBD binds with CB1 and CB2 receptors which are the two main receptors in the endocannabinoid system. CBD activates these receptors and helps to modulate the activities of these receptors. For example, CBD activates the CB1 receptors and helps to reduce pain and inflammation while it can help boost the immune system by activating the CB2 receptors.

Scientists have been studying CBD as a source of treatment for cancer, but as of now the results may not be consistent, but more research are being carried out worldwide.

Lung cancer remains the leading type of cancer illness. 13% of new cancer patients begin with the lung. Lung cancer is the number 1 cause of death from cancer in the US. 228 thousand adults in the US are diagnosed with lung cancer each year and 80% of lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking.

The case report shared the experience of a woman in her 80's diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. At the same time she is also in treatment for high blood pressure, osteoarthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). She is a smoker and smokes more than a pack of cigarettes per week (68 packs a year).

During her first diagnosed, the size of the tumor is 41mm with no evidence of spreading of cancer. She met all the criteria for surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but she refused treatment and received regular follow ups every 3-6 months.

She decided on an alternative treatment in the form of CBD oil. She said she took 0.5ml of CBD oil 2-3 times a day. The CBD oil she took consisted of 19.5% THC, 20% and 24% THCa.

According to scans that was taken during June 2018 until February 2021. In the initial state the size of tumor 41mm and went down to 10mm a total reduction of 76%.

The reason she refused conventional cancer treatment was because she witness the difficulties and the struggles her husband went through the side effects of radiotherapy.

It is important to understand that we don't fully know the full benefit of CBD has on cancer. We don't know whether this is just an isolated condition which may or may not work on others. But we are optimistic that scientists will be able to find out more in the future on how CBD will help with cancer.

It is too early to make the claim that CBD is the miracle drug that will cure cancer, but for a fact CBD can help manage symptoms from cancer treatment.

CBD as a complementary treatment can:

  • Stimulate appetite

  • Relief pain and inflammation

  • Promote sleep

  • Reduce anxiety and stress

  • Relief nausea
