What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the many compounds inside the hemp and cannabis plants. These compounds belong to molecules called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids determine the type of effect on the body. When certain cannabinoids, like THC, or group of cannabinoids bind to specialized CB1 and CB2 receptors; the cell triggers notifying there is a change in cell activity.
Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD does not directly signal these special receptors, instead it has an indirect effect on the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD stimulates the body’s natural endogenous cannabinoids which sends signals to activate those receptors to do their job naturally. CB1 receptors are in the nervous system, glands, organs and connective tissue. CB2 receptors have an effect on the immune system and your functioning health.
The natural cannabinoids within your body work with these receptors to prevent your nervous system from misfiring or acting defectively. Natural cannabinoid deficiency will lead to negative effects on your body’s nervous system and body as a whole. Your body needs cannabinoids when endocannabinoid deficient just like when you take vitamin D for bone strength. This is because our body needs the right balance of cannabinoids to keep our nervous system and body in good health.
Many describe CBD as being like THC, just without the psychoactive effects. Although this is true, CBD works as an endocannabinoid modular. This means when a disease starts to take over your body it will create an imbalance within a body system. The CBD then works to get those systems to balance back to where they should be; healthy, working condition.

Can CBD Benefit Cancer Patients?
Lets have a look some of the documented research:
In 2011, the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University examined the relationship between the endocannabinoid system and anti-tumor actions. The study suggests that the activation of the endocannabinoid system beneficially impacts those with breast, prostate, and bone cancers.
Another study, published in 2016, found even more evidence regarding cannabinoids and cancers. Specifically, the study suggests that the endocannabinoid system regulates the malignancy of tumors; using the CB1 and CB2 biological pathways, the ECS acts to influence the activation of cancer cells.
It is undeniable that the endocannabinoid system and cancer as uniquely intertwined. Research continues to demonstrate the therapeutic potential that targeting the ECS can have on those with cancer.
Dozens of studies have been conducted with the aim of exploring the effect of CBD on a variety of cancers. These studies provide specific examples of how CBD helps cancer. Using biological pathways, cannabinoids (like CBD) have been found to target and inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
A more specific examination of this shows that CBD has anti-angiogenic properties when applied to a variety of tumors.
A study published in early 2017 demonstrated that CBD improved the chances of survival in patients with aggressive brain cancers. Study participants in the study who were treated with CBD were more likely to survive the first year than those who received placebo.
A study on lung cancers published in 2012 suggests that CBD “decreases cancer cell invasiveness.” By acting to increase tissue inhibitor in particular molecules in the lungs, CBD acts to reduce the spread of cancerous cells.
These are just a few examples of many studies that have been conducted that specifically explore the effect of Cannabidiol on cancer cells and tissues that manifest throughout a variety of the body’s systems.
