This brings us to the next question, can CBD cure cancer?

CBD may help reduce the symptoms that are related to cancer and the side effects that are related to the treatment such as pain, nausea, and vomiting.

It may also help reduce the nausea and vomiting that comes along with the chemotherapy. There was a study performed on 16 people that were undergoing chemotherapy and it was found that a combination of one to one CBD and THC that was administered via mouth spray reduced the nausea and vomiting that was related to the chemotherapy.

Studies on animals as well as test tubing showed that CBD may have anticancer properties. One of the test-tube studies found that concentrated CBD induced cell death in breast cancer cells in humans.

Prevention of cancer

“A 2010 study used a mouse model to study the effects of cannabinoids, THC specifically, on suppression of the immune system. The study found evidence that THC can, in fact, suppress the immune system, though whether that increases the risk of cancer is not well established.”
