In a hot country like Australia, melanoma skin cancer is rife and there, more people are wanting to treat skin cancer with cannabis cream. In fact, researchers in Australia are collaborating with Israelis who are making medical cannabis products. The University of Canberra took the plunge and signed a million dollar deal with an Australian medical cannabis supplier, to manufacture a unique medical grade cannabis treatment for skin cancer. Researchers aim to treat skin cancer with cannabis cream, as an add-on to conventional ways of treating melanoma. More studies must be done in the interim, to prove that cannabis oils do treat skin cancer – and very well.
Several cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, including cannabidiol (CBD) have been shown to halt the process of unrestrained cell growth (a phenomenon associated with cancer cells). CBD appears to have the best effect in stopping unwelcome DNA action that causes cells to grow madly, unnaturally so. Many people have told their stories far and wide about how they used cannabis creams to treat their skin cancers, successfully.
Melanoma is the most serious skin cancer in the world, causing the most deaths out of any other skin cancers. Also called ‘the silent killer’ melanoma often looks like a mole with irregular sides which tend to change a lot – which normal moles never do. Nearly 2 000 people would have died in Australia and New Zealand alone in 2016 from melanoma. To avoid being one of these statistics, always check your skin and moles to see if there are any weird changes or irregularities. Then you can catch the skin cancer in time, before it spreads deeper into your tissues, then around your body. If you get caught with any kind of skin cancer, remember to consider combining your doctor’s medication with cannabis cream.
Skin cancer is usually caused by UV radiation but some types appear on parts of the body which never see the sun. Sometimes, treatment includes surgery, and other times, treatment includes chemotherapy to stop the spread of the cancer. When cannabis oils are used in the form of a cream, rubbed into the skin cancer several times a day, the cannabinoids have a positive effect on the disease. CBD and other cannabinoids have shown their ability to decrease, and even kill, cancer cells.
One study has revealed that the endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in combating melanoma. This immune booster system is a sequence of cannabinoid receptors spread throughout the body. These receptors react well to our own cannabinoids and those produced by the cannabis plant. One of our own cannabinoids called Anandamide helps to control and kill cancer cells. the cannabis cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) plays the same role so can also be used to treat cancer. CBD is such a strong cannabinoid it can actually reverse changes in the skin. CBD acts in a similar way to Anandamide to stop cancer cells in their tracks.
As studies continue into the use of cannabis oils to treat skin cancer, more people are being brave enough to try cannabinoids on their own skin cancers – with amazingly positive results. Chat to us today about our cannabis cream and other cannabis oil products.
