CBD and Basal Cell Carcinoma
The American Academy of Dermatology made it a point to state that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, stating that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their life (1).
Cannabinoids showed promising treatment for cutaneous melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, which includes basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Over 7,500 people die each year from skin cancer, which means conventional treatment isn’t as effective as medical professionals hope for, and this has led medical researchers to look for alternatives to address skin cancer (2).
As always, the anti-cancer properties that cannabinoids like CBD and THC hold for melanoma, basal cell, and squamous cell carcinoma is quite shocking.
According to Cancers, a peer reviewed medical journal, they stated that cannabinoids such as CBD and THC were shown to inhibit skin carcinoma tumor cell growth (anti-tumor properties), proliferation (keep from growing in numbers), invasion (keep from invading other cells), and halt angiogenesis (stop the formation of creating new vasculature that will feed growing cancer cells and tumors), as well as induce apoptosis (cancer cell death, and autophagy (the body’s way to clean up damage or sick cells, in this case, clean out the dying cancer cells) (3).
I am just going to stop right there and reiterate that to make things a little clearer. Cannabinoids like CBD and THC were shown to keep tumors from growing, keep cancer cells from spreading, stop tumors from creating new vasculature to grow, cause skin cancer cells to die, and encourage the body’s natural ability to consume and clean up the skin cancer cells.
CBD and THC were shown to kill all three types of cancer cells, yet we still have people dying from skin cancer. Why is this the case? The truth is, these medical studies are being conducted and once the results are published it seems that this information is being hushed. But why? Are we really looking for a cure for cancer or are we looking for different pharmaceuticals that they can patent so the medical care system can get even more rich?
As you can see, cannabinoids like CBD and THC were shown to kill melanoma, basal cell, and squamous cell carcinoma, yet this information is not reaching those that have skin cancer.
So, what do you do when the medical care system is failing the people? Sometimes we must take matters into our own hands.
We will be offering pure CBD distillate that you can use topically. This peer reviewed medical journal states that regardless of what skin cancer you have, cannabinoids show a promising future for causing skin cancer cell death (3).
One of nature's finest herbs and most powerful anti-cancer properties that any plant on earth holds. This plant was demonized because of its healing capabilities, and I hope that is more apparent than ever. It is nice to see information like this coming to light because it is something that was hidden from us for and for obvious reasons (making money at the cost of human suffering). No matter how effective this plant is for chronic medical conditions, it can’t be patented and that is a threat to big pharma. Cannabis was shown to treat over 200 chronic medical conditions, with skin cancer being just one of them (4).
