You have probably heard about CBD, either from the media or in person, especially in regard to its medical potential. Cannabidiol (“CBD”) came into the limelight when the 2018 farm bill federally legalized the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp and its derivatives, including CBD. Although hemp is in the cannabis family, CBD extracted from legal industrial hemp will not intoxicate you. However, CBD still shares plenty of medical properties with THC, the main psychoactive agent in marijuana, and several studies have found that cannabidiol can aid in post-cancer recovery.
So how exactly does taking CBD aid in post-cancer recovery? It all boils down to potent anti-inflammation and antioxidant properties. CBD is most commonly used to address issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, nausea and insomnia. Some studies have also found that cannabinoids such as CBD can inhibit tumor growth and reduce tumor invasion. However, more research is needed before we can conclusively state that CBD is an effective anti-cancer treatment. However, at the moment, cannabinoid does look to be able to support post-cancer recovery.
Coincidentally, most of the adverse symptoms caused by cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy can be treated by CBD treatment. These symptoms include nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite and neuropathic pain. Recovering from cancer can be brutal as the treatments aren’t easy on the body. Lack of appetite, for instance, can significantly reduce your food intake, reducing your energy levels and actually hindering your recovery. Since CBD is known to stimulate appetite, individuals undergoing cancer treatment can use it to maintain sufficient nutrient intake and give their bodies the energy it needs to recover.
This is the same for insomnia, which will not only make you feel tired and fatigued but can also put your health at even more risk. CBD is also thought to be a pain reliever, and it can be effective against the sometimes severe pain cancer patients feel. All cannabinoids, including CBD and THC, create their therapeutic effects by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (“ECS”), a part of the nervous system that’s in charge of regulating processes such as hunger, sleep and pain. Essentially, the ECS is a system that works to maintain homeostasis, or the body’s internal balance.
If you would like to use CBD to aid in cancer recovery, make sure to speak to your doctor first. Additionally, you should not ditch your cancer medication for CBD; while some studies have found that it has anti-cancer effects, it isn’t an effective treatment against cancer.
