While research on the health benefits are still being researched, many American cancer patients have praised CBD for helping treat their side-effects associated with their ongoing cancer treatments. Here, we hear from a Lost Range customer from Youngstown, Ohio, who hit rock bottom from the devastating toll cancer and chemotherapy took on his body. But the love for his two sons and finding much-needed relief helped him fight through.
CBD oil (cannabidiol) is a hot topic these days. It comes in many forms: oils that are dropped under the tongue to roll-ons that are applied to the skin. CBD has been known to help treat a wide variety of ailments such as, anxiety disorders, insomnia, and even the effects of cancer and cancer treatments. In this case study, we will see a testimonial from how one man who battled with cancer credits Lost Range CBD for helping him through the chemotherapy process and more.
Testimonial By Fady, Youngstown, Ohio.
Fady, a former avid football player and fellow customer of Lost Range and is currently taking our Gold Buckle 4000 mg Full Spectrum tincture, paired with our CBD Essential Oil Roller to help subside the effects of chemotherapy. This is his second time having cancer and the products that Lost Range offers, and says it has helped tremendously.
I am very grateful and blessed for having been introduced to the cbd products by Lost Range. I’m currently taking the 4000 mg full spectrum tincture, applying half a dropper (.5ml) under my tongue in the morning and half at night before bed. Sometimes even take a drop midday depending on how I’m feeling. I also use the roll on cbd cream on my wrists to also help give me a boost and the cream smells great.
This has been a huge game changer for me as I am battling cancer for the 2nd time in 3 years. The chemo sure does take a toll on your body having side effects like nausea and loss of appetite, tingling etc. Sometimes it’s a challenge just to drink water or trying to get out of bed. However, since taking the 4000 mg tincture I have a much better appetite and my nausea is no longer keeping me planted. My recovery time from doing the chemo rounds to getting back to normalcy has gotten a lot better.
Again I owe it all to Lost Range and I am forever grateful for helping me get back up and at em throughout my recovery process. Without Lost Range I know I’d have significant weight loss and suffer a lot more and my average daily routine would be a lot harder. Thank you again for your products and look forward to utilizing them FOREVER! Thank you and God Bless always, Fady.
CBD as a Treatment for Cancer
We've seen solid evidence supporting the idea that CBD can reduce tumor growth in animal models of cancer. CBD may also enhance uptake or increase the potency of certain drugs used to treat cancer.
Here are some encouraging studies:
- A 2019 review of in vitro and in vivo studies focusing on pancreatic cancer found that cannabinoids can help slow tumor growth, reduce tumor invasion, and induce tumor cell death. The study authors wrote that research into the effectiveness of different formulations, dosing, and precise mode of action is lacking and urgently needed.
- A 2014 study in experimental models of colon cancer in vivo suggests that CBD may inhibit the spread of colorectal cancer cells.
- Another 2014 study of 35 in vitro and in vivo studies found that cannabinoids are promising compounds in the treatment of gliomas.
- Research from 2010 demonstrated the efficacy of CBD in preclinical models of metastatic breast cancer. The study found that CBD significantly reduced breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion.
- Another 2019 study indicated that CBD could provoke cell death and make glioblastoma cells more sensitive to radiation, but with no effect on healthy cells.
- A large, long-term study of men within the California Men’s Health Study cohort found that using cannabis may be inversely associated with bladder cancer risk. However, a cause and effect relationship hasn’t been established.
It is worth noting it is far too soon to say that CBD is a safe and effective treatment for cancer in humans and CBD shouldn’t be considered a substitute for other cancer treatments.
So what exactly is CBD?
Marijuana and hemp are both varieties of the cannabis sativa plant. Both contain cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the two most-common, known active ingredients. The main difference is that hemp has far less THC than a typical marijuana plant.
THC can cause feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and increased appetite. While CBD’s effects are less extreme and include relaxation and pain relief. And unlike THC, CBD is not a psychoactive agent, so there’s less possibility that it will cause the same mental confusion, drowsiness or hallucinations that often come with THC.
While right now there is no evidence that CBD can cure cancer or relieve symptoms of chemotherapy, it is widely reported by users to alleviate some of the effects from chemo treatments and other cancer treatments.
CBD may help people with cancer manage some symptoms of the disease, as well as side effects of treatment. Scientists are also looking into how CBD could aid cancer treatment, but more research is needed before any conclusions can be made.
