CANNABIDIOL (CBD) AND PROLONGED BREAST CANCER SURVIVAL

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24910342.#

There have been many studies showing CBD to be effective in regulating a number of cancer genes. In particular, the ID-1 gene, when activated results in aggressive Breast Cancer. CBD has been known for a number of years to “turn off” the ID-1 gene. When mice received 21 days of CBD injections, mammary breast cancers implanted in the mice essentially disappeared.

With the above study, we now have evidence that metastases can be minimized with CBD therapy.

I am quite certain that we will all be seeing a lot more studies like this with both THC and CBD.

The oncology community is becoming more and more open to using cannabis in general. Hopefully soon, it will become an adjuvant part of every chemotherapy therapy. In general, I would advise a combination of both CBD and THC, but we can see that at least in Breast Cancer and with other malignancies, such as leukemia, CBD alone seems to be very effective and certainly harmless.

Yeah for science!!

Rationing Health Care

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
