For people fighting cancer, CBD may provide them with a natural alternative for pain and symptom relief.
Although more research needs to be done on CBD’s role in treating cancer, whatever data is currently available looks promising. According to the American Cancer Society, CBD can slow down the growth and spread of certain types of cancer (in animals), given that this psychoactive compound efficiently fights oxidative stress and inflammation.
According to review published din the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD can significantly help prevent the spread of cancer. The researchers noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction.
