Managing Symptoms of Breast Cancer with Cannabis Oil: All You Need To Know

According to the Breast Cancer Organization, 1 in 8 American will women develop breast cancer at least once during their lives. The survey predicts that approximately 268,600 new cases of this invasive cancer will be diagnosed in 2019. After lung cancer, breast cancer causes the greatest number of cancer deaths in women.

What is Breast Cancer?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, breast cancer is caused by the abnormal growth of cells in the breast. There are essentially two common types of breast cancers. When it forms in the ducts—the tubes that transfer milk to the nipples—it’s known as the invasive ductal carcinoma; when it’s triggered in the lobules of the breast—the glands that produce milk—the cancer is called invasive lobular carcinoma. When the cancer spreads to the blood and lymph vessels, it’s said to have metastasized.

The Symptoms of Breast Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, the symptoms of breast cancer include but aren’t limited to:

  • Swelling of a part or the entire breast
  • Rash and irritation around the breast
  • Pain in the breast or the nipple
  • Retraction of the nipple
  • Nipple discharge, possibly including blood

Cannabis Oil for Breast Cancer

In 2007, Dr. Sean McAllister made an astonishing breakthrough in the study of cannabis and its anti-cancer properties. He states that CBD found in the cannabis plant effectively combats the 1D-gene found in the body, which is responsible for the development of malignant and invasive tumors.

Dr. McAllister’s findings were later supported by other researches; a study published in the National Institutes of Health concludes that CB1 and CB2 are modulated by the cannabinoids in CBD to improve the symptoms of breast cancer in patients.

CBD and Cancer Cells

CBD facilitates two very important processes that induce programmed cell death in breast cancer patients—apoptosis and autophagy. The cancer cells are killed and replaced by a mass of healthy cells.

CBD and Cancer Symptoms

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are the standard treatments in cancer patients. The worst part is that their side-effects can be as bad as the cancer pains and symptoms itself. Nausea, insomnia, depression, loss of appetite and other chemo-induced problems can be improved with CBD oil.

When it can give such unimaginable results for managing the symptoms of breast cancer, don’t delay using CBD oil to help you live a happier and pain-free life!
