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!!
