A recent new study in South Africa has revealed that cervical cancer can be cured by CBD oil. Cannabis oil containing CBD is a known powerful medicinal healer for all kinds of ailments, including cancer. Now findings show that it can cure cervical cancer which is one of the leading cancers among women in the world. The study was done in a petri dish (in vitro) and still needs to be tested on humans but the findings are very positive – cannabidiol or CBD does contain anti-cancer properties. This cannabinoid comes from the cannabis sativa plant and was shown to cause the death of cancerous cells through apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Usually cancer cells continue to grow and divide and spread but the CBD stops them doing this.
Many studies during the past few decades have shown that cannabis oils containing CBD are powerful healers. CBD can treat cancer by interacting with the body’s innate endocannabinoid system and forcing cancer cells to commit suicide. Researchers found that cannabis oil, not crude cannabis extracts, healed women with cancer of the cervix thanks to these properties. If CBD can really inhibit cervical cancer cells from growing and spreading, then there is hope for women all over the world who suffer from this terrible disease.
This year alone, more than 12 000 women in the United States will get cervical cancer. The numbers have dropped over recent years as more women are going for their annual Pap smears, a test which can detect abnormal cells in the cervix and then women can be treated immediately. In Africa, however, more than 250 000 women will die from cervical cancer this year as they do not have access to Pap smear facilities, medical aid or gynaecological units. If cannabis oils could be recognised as a cancer fighter, cannabis could be grown all over Africa and the oils extracted to fight cancer of the cervix. Cervical cancer is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) which is spread through sexual intercourse. Women can also pass the virus onto their babies during natural birth if the cervix harbours the HPV virus. The more a woman smokes, the higher her risk of getting cancer of the cervix. Diseases like AIDS which lower the immunity also mean women are at risk of getting cervical cancer.
But there is hope. More studies will be done on cervical cancer and CBD oil and in time, this medicinal cannabis oil will be an acceptable form of treatment. CBD can alleviate the symptoms of chemotherapy too and assist patients to fight pain, inflammation, insomnia, lack of appetite and depression.
