Nowadays, it is merely impossible to find anyone who doesn’t know someone who has had cancer or who’s family member or friend has battled cancer. 

Cancer is a reality many people live with and represents over a hundred diseases. 

Cancer can develop anywhere in the body and is what happens when a group of abnormal cells start reproducing at a fast rate.  Cancer cells eventually spread into healthy tissue and hijack the blood vessels that supply vitality to these tissues.  

Cancer patients undergo many painful treatments in an attempt to kill cancer cells, halt tumour growth and prevent the spread of cancer in the body.

A 2019 study showed that the effect of different medications administered in the fight against cancer can be enhanced by using CBD in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments, giving cancer patients renewed hope.

Some research has shown that CBD can help with the symptoms of chemotherapy and can even slow cancer cell growth and the development of blood cells needed for tumour cells to grow. 

CBD oil can help relieve the pain associated with cancer and cancer treatments and calm the body’s reaction to chemotherapy.  Certain drugs that are available for calming nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy don’t work for some cancer patients.  CBD oil is a good alternative for these patients and can help alleviate some of the symptoms of the cancer treatment.

If you are undergoing cancer treatments, you should speak to your oncologist before taking CBD oil or any other form of treatment.
