Cannabis-derived medicines, including CBD products, are currently being used to treat a variety of ailments.
Among them, the prescription of cannabis for cancer treatment is currently attracting a lot of attention. In this article, we will take a closer look at the reality of cancer treatment and medical marijuana.
What is medical marijuana used for cancer treatment?
In other countries where medical marijuana is allowed, they are using it against cancer treatment.
The ingredients in cannabis plants are said to suppress the metastasis of cancer cells, prevent recurrence, and reduce the enlargement of tumors. It is also said to have a high antioxidant effect, and can be expected to suppress the production of reactive oxygen species that promote the development of cancer cells in the body.
When it is used for cancer treatment, it is generally taken in conjunction with radiation therapy or anti-cancer drug treatment.
“I succeeded in stopping the growth of tumors that could not be stopped by radiation therapy or anticancer drug therapy.”
There have been reports from all over the world to the effect that “I had given up on cancer treatment because it was too painful, but thanks to medical marijuana, I am able to prevent metastasis. But thanks to medical marijuana, metastasis has been prevented.”
The anthrax effect of THC and CBD is expected to be more effective
CBD products are becoming more and more popular around the world, and it is believed that full-spectrum products containing THC are more effective than isolate or broad-spectrum products in cancer treatment.
This is because THC and CBD are expected to have more of an entourage effect when taken together than when taken alone.
Each ingredient is said to have its own benefits for cancer treatment, and taking both at the same time is said to increase the absorption rate.
Isn’t marijuana approved as a cancer treatment?
However, although cannabis-derived products are used for cancer treatment in many countries, they are not actually approved as a cancer treatment.
One of the reasons for this is the unique genetic organization of cancer cells.
In fact, there are many different types of cancers, and in terms of genetic tissue, there are about several hundred different types.
So, there are some types of cancers that can be effectively treated with cannabis plants and some that cannot.
“Cancer cell tissue A is effective with radiation therapy and does not respond to cannabis.”
and the target case.
“Cancer cell B was not suppressed by radiation therapy, but its growth was stopped by the ingestion of cannabis.”
This is also the case.
It is difficult to clinically demonstrate that cannabis is effective in all cancer cell tissues.
In addition, THC, which is expected to have an anthrage effect with CBD, is an illegal ingredient that is regulated in some countries and regions. The fact that it is not a globally available ingredient is another factor that makes it difficult for cannabis to be proven as a cancer treatment.

Although medical marijuana is currently still in the research stage as a cancer treatment, many people are using it as a cancer prevention tool. In addition to its high antioxidant effect, it is also said that a life without stress due to its relaxing effect is important for suppressing cancer cells. So it is recommended not only for people undergoing cancer treatment, but also for those who want to prevent it.
