CBD and Cancer: 4 Things You Need to Know

Considering the National Cancer Institute purports that approximately 1.8 million United States citizens will undergo a positive cancer diagnosis in 2020, it’s understandable that CBD and cancer are increasingly mentioned in the same breath.

Perhaps you’ve already replaced a few over-the-counter products for CBD varieties, but even if you haven’t, here are four ways CBD can help cancer patients to lead an optimum life despite the harmful prescription medications and treatments needed to defeat the second-deadliest illness in the US behind only heart disease.

Considering the National Cancer Institute purports that approximately 1.8 million United States citizens will undergo a positive cancer diagnosis in 2020, it’s understandable that CBD and cancer are increasingly mentioned in the same breath.

Perhaps you’ve already replaced a few over-the-counter products for CBD varieties, but even if you haven’t, here are four ways CBD can help cancer patients to lead an optimum life despite the harmful prescription medications and treatments needed to defeat the second-deadliest illness in the US behind only heart disease.

  1. Insomnia

You or a loved one don’t need a cancer diagnosis to understand how critical sleep is to recovery. If you’ve ever had the common flu or sprained ankle, a solid night’s deep slumber is uber essential.

It’s known in the medical community that cancer-related meds and treatments can cause horrible insomnia. That’s where CBD can be a godsend. It can alleviate sleep-disruptive factors like anxiety, depression, and pain, and can take effect as quickly as 15 minutes after consumption to give your body the respite it so badly craves.

  • Appetite

Chemo and radiation are chock-full of terrible side effects, which include nausea and reduced appetite. Some research has shown that cannabinoids could ease neuropathic discomfort and nausea.

  • Pain and inflammation relief

The relationship between CBD and cancer is just as intertwined as CBD and muscle recovery. The main difference between the latter and the former is why your muscles may be in a world of hurt on certain days.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Chemo and radiation are brutal on the human body, causing side effects like inflammation and often-intense physical pain.

Enter CBD products with the potential to help with everything from muscle inflammation and increase energy levels the following day because of the ability mentioned above to help with insomnia.

  • Quality and confidence

With the legalization of THC and CBD products in California and scores of additional states, gone are the days of purchasing items from unregulated sources. Not only can you feel confident purchasing through established industry leaders, but many will deliver to your home, which is especially helpful if you’re too sick to leave home or if you’re out-of-town loved one wishes to send products directly to your doorstep.

From insomnia to inflammation to anxiety relief, there’s not much CBD do. One last benefit for CBD and cancer-related issues: Products are available in multiple shapes and sizes, including oils easily added to favorite foods and drinks, discrete edibles ideal for traveling within the United States, and soothing bath salts to provide the physical relief the body craves while fighting this terrible disease.
