CBD and Breast Cancer

CBD and Breast Cancer

As you probably already know, cannabis has been not only growing on Earth for thousands of years, but cannabis has also been used medicinally for thousands of years too. By now I’m sure you have heard all about CBD or maybe you are wondering, “what’s all this talk about cannabis?”...either way, this little plant is made up of hundreds of compounds and CBD and THC are the 2 main stars, shining in the spotlight.

Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most diagnosed form of cancer among women and can be treated when detected early. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 1 in 1000 men! Cannabis has been known to benefit in the treatment of cancer-related side effects, such as nausea and appetite. Commercially available cannabinoids, such as dronabinol and nabilone, are approved drugs for the treatment of cancer-related side effects. Although cannabis is not approved by the FDA, and is still listed as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, there must be something to it since there are a few SYNTHETIC versions made by pharmaceutical companies. I find it interesting that CBD is used for the side effects of the prescription drugs people are given alongside chemo and radiation, but not recognized for its healing potential. The body’s ECS is only activated when cannabis is consumed and homeostasis is the result.

Elevated mood, increased appetite and restful sleep are just a few of the benefits of using CBD oil medicinally. Proper dosing and a pure, full spectrum formula, organically planted, grown, harvested and extracted are all relative factors when considering to purchase CBD oil for medicinal purposes. Luckily for you, My Hemp Benefits has just what you need, high quality CBD oil, but don’t take my word for it, you can easily view the certificate of analysis on our website. We have eliminated sweeteners and flavors to bring you the whole plant in its purest form. We added D-Limonene for its natural citrus essence and additional health benefits. Besides oral, our tincture can be applied topically to the skin and massaged into the breast tissue. I also suggest drinking pulpy orange juice and lemonade for additional limonene benefits, which research has also shown to be beneficial in cancer treatment.

Please do your own research. There is so much research about the use CBD and THC to treat cancer, and the My Hemp Benefits Team is here to help you in anyway we can. We believe CBD should be affordable to everyone, and we want to help you. If your doctor is not familiar with medical cannabis, find one who is. CBD is commonly used alongside traditional treatments. You do not need a medical marijuana card to use hemp derived CBD oil, however, you do need a card if it is derived from a marijuana plant. Taking CBD oil along with a few lifestyle changes will go a long way toward optimum health and healing. And lastly, get familiar with your breasts and commit to a monthly self exam.
