The annual Race for the Cure, held today in Rome, brings together millions of people from around the world to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and treatment. Over the years there have been numerous methods to find a cure, however, as the popularity of alternative medicine has grown, many people have turned to cannabis as a potential treatment option. In this article we will analyze the link between the Race for the Cure and cannabis.🌿🏃🏼‍♀️♥️

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural chemical found in cannabis plants. Although it is often linked to the psychoactive properties of marijuana, CBD does not have the same intoxicating effects as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). In contrast, CBD has been found to have several potential health benefits, including the ability to aid in the treatment of cancer.

Cancer is a complex disease that can be difficult to treat, with standard treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy often having major side effects and being ineffective. A recent study, however, has suggested that cannabidiol, a natural chemical found in cannabis plants, may offer potential benefits in fighting cancer.

There is growing evidence that CBD may be a valid therapeutic option for this disease. In a 2011 study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics it was discovered that it promotes apoptosis (cell death) of cells while leaving healthy ones unscathed. Another 2014 study, published in the journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, found that it can suppress the growth and spread of these cancer cells in mice.

This plant can contribute to treatment by minimizing the negative results of standard oncological treatments. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can both produce severe nausea, vomiting and pain, lowering the patient's quality of life. Cannabis, on the other hand, has been shown to have anti-nausea and pain-relieving qualities, which can help patients manage symptoms.

Additionally, it can help manage the psychological impact of therapy, such as anxiety and sadness. Furthermore, it has been shown in some studies to have anxiolytic and antidepressant properties, making it a possible therapeutic choice for people suffering from the aforementioned symptoms.

These findings imply that hemp could be an effective supplemental drug. However, further testing is needed to fully understand the potential benefits, as well as to review optimal dosages and treatment methods.

There are several ways in which hemp can help:

  1. Reducing inflammation: Inflammation can contribute to the proliferation and spread of cancer cells. Hemp has anti-inflammatory qualities that can help reduce inflammation in the body
  2. Strengthen the immune system: The immune system is crucial in the fight against cancer. Cannabinoids have immunomodulatory properties, meaning they can help control and boost the immune system
  3. Increase the effectiveness of standard treatments: Some studies have shown that hemp can improve the final outcome of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, making treatments more effective
  4. Antioxidant Protection: Antioxidants protect the body from radical damage, which can lead to the development of cancer.
  5. Management of sleep problems: Sleep problems are a typical side effect of cancer therapies. Cannabinoids have been shown to have sedative properties that can help improve the quality and duration of sleep.

Cannabis may interact with other medications, and your doctor can advise you whether this is a safe and effective treatment option to provide relief for your specific situation.

Final reflections

In conclusion, CBD can contribute to the treatment of this tumor by alleviating symptoms, minimizing the negative consequences of standard treatments and, perhaps, having anti-tumor properties. Although further testing is needed, this plant appears to be a promising adjunctive therapy. Together, we can continue to raise awareness and fund testing and treatment, as well as work to find a cure for this terrible disease.
