CBD Oil and THC Cancer Treatment
CBD Oil Cancer Treatment
More and more, it’s not just Holistic Doctors are aware of the benefits of CBD oil cancer treatments, but Doctors in many other fields are opening up to the possibility that CBD oil based products may be useful in dealing with cancer. There is still a lot of opposition about CBD in the medical and holistic fields about CBD and the positive effects it can have. The amazing results people with cancer get when using CBD oil cancer treatment is astounding. The problem is that without sufficient testing it’s hard to say what specific effect the CBD had. Was it the cancer itself that the CBD had an effect on, or was effect on that person’s cancer an after effect of another physiological process in their body?
The Truth About Hemp Oil Cancer Cure
Rick Simpson and the Hemp Oil Cancer Cure
Rick Simpson dealt with cancer himself. If you have watched the documentary “Run From the Cure” (and its sequel), you know Rick’s story. Through a series of events, Rick developed an essential oil from hemp that he one day used to treat three skin cancer spots on his skin.
According to Rick, the spots disappeared in four days. Rick Simpson gave his essential oil away to other cancer patients, many of whom showed similar miraculous results. Ever since then, he has faced a long uphill battle trying to get medical professionals in Canada to take his discovery seriously.
The same scenario exists around the world. Many have found relief from different conditions because of medical marijuana and hemp-based extracts, but because of the lack of research, those in the medical field remain skeptical.
Rick Simpson oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and is rich in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound in cannabis. While there is undoubtedly plenty of anecdotal evidence supporting its effectiveness, the facts that it is derived from marijuana and that its major component is psychoactive mean that it is not legal to use in many places.

Dr.Christina Sanchez explains how cannabis kills cancer cells
Dr. Christina Sanchez on her research
Dr. Christina Sanchez is a molecular biologist working on cannabis and cancer research. She is a part of a larger team which has discovered that THC effectively kills tumors in both cultured cells and animal models. Thus far, their work has focused primarily on brain and breast cancers.
Here’s how she explains their work,
We started working on this project 12 or 15 years ago, and it was basically by chance. We were working with astrocytes [a cell of the central nervous system] at the time and we decided to change the model and work with astrocytoma cells, the tumoral cells.
We observed that when we treated these cells with cannabinoids, THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, was killing the cells in our Petri dishes. We were killing the cells.
