There are not enough studies about the interaction of CBD and cancer cells yet, however, there are solid indications of how CBD can benefit cancer patients.
Many cancer patients not only suffer under the symptoms of cancer but of the side effects of the treatment (such as chemotherapy and the drugs connected to it).
CBD activates receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which positively affect the nervous system and the immune system. The positive effects of CBD on cancer patients are the reduced feeling of nausea and sickness, increased appetite and improved sleep. In some cases cannabinoids were able to stop cancer cell growth, which leads to being cancer free in combination with traditional methods fighting cancer.
