Subject: Can CBD Help with Chemotherapy Treatments?
The potency of chemotherapy has long been considered a mixed blessing for cancer-sufferers, because while it can obliterate cancer cells, sometimes very effectively, it also has the effect of annihilating healthy cells along the way. Because of the unintended second effect, users often experience nasty side issues, including nausea, hair-loss, swelling of the extremities, and diarrhea.
Canabidiol is a derivative from the hemp plant. Unlike oil culled from its relative, marijuana, the hemp derivative is not an abundant source of THC, the psychotropic element that gives marijuana its buzz. Good news for cancer sufferers undergoing chemo, because study suggests the oil can mitigate many of the bugbears affiliated with chemo use. Gains were seen across the side-effect spectrum, in fact. Study showed nausea was ameliorated, swelling contained, weight loss prevented, pain mitigated, and a better mood induced.
- Chemotherapy is known to kill off healthy and cancer cells effectively and without discrimination.
- This capability can lead to an array of side effects for chemo-recipients, including hair loss, nausea and swelling of extremities.
- CBD oil has been shown to positively impact many of these side effects, including weight loss, depression, nausea and swelling.
"Fortunately there are studies which suggest that cannabidiol (CBD), one of the chemicals derived from cannabis plants , can actually help manage the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy."
