A study by the National Institute for Cancer Research in the United States found that CBD, one of the active cannabinoids in cannabis, kills cells of breast cancer and helps prevent the spread of breast cancer in the body. It was also found that the effects of CBD in these cases are not related to the endocannabinoid system, they are those of the CBD and have not yet been identified.
The CBD (cannabidiol), one of the cannabinoids in cannabis, is responsible for many of the own, especially anti-inflammatory properties plants and their ability to treat seizures and post – traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) medicinal qualities. Now, a study of the American Cancer Institute shows that CBD is also effective in the treatment of breast cancer and the total elimination of tumor cells. All this without any psychoactive effect known as THC provides.
The CBD or cannabidiol is breast cancer
The elimination of cancer cells, researchers say, is that the CBD regulates the two processes called Afotosis (apoptosis – cell suicide) and Aotofagi (autophagy – cell cycle), leading to the death of cancer cells and preventing the new way of existing.
The CBD destroys cancer cells and minimizes damage to normal tissue, “the researchers wrote summarizing the findings. According to the study’s conclusion, it seems that medical cannabis therapy, especially using CBD-rich varieties are effective in treating breast cancer, especially against harmful alternatives such as chemotherapy.
Future research promises
The researchers also found that, surprisingly, it was shown in the study of the CBD that their properties against cancer were not related to the endocannabinoid system (receivers in the system of responsible human brain communication with cannabinoids from the plant) and are independent of external factors, the same CBD is responsible for killing cancer cells.
“The results indicate that CBD causes programmed independently receptor B1 and B2 (part of the cannabinoid system) cell death, ” the researchers concluded, “Identify and understand the impact of this research may lead to a promising future.”
