Study: CBD May Help Treat, and Cause the Death of, Endometrial Cancer

CBD (cannabidiol) and CBD-rich extracts may provide a potential treatment option for endometrial cancer, according to a new study published by the Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

Endometrial cancer,

“Among a variety of phytocannabinoids, Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the most promising therapeutic compounds”, begins the study’s abstract. “Besides the well-known palliative effects in cancer patients, cannabinoids have been shown to inhibit in vitro growth of tumor cells. Likewise, the major endocannabinoids (eCBs), anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), induce tumor cell death.”

The purpose of the present study “was to characterize cannabinoid elements and evaluate the effect of cannabinoids in endometrial cancer cell viability.” Endometrial cancer is a variety of cancer that begins in the lining of the uterus.

After conducted a series of tests, researchers found that “these data indicate that cannabinoids modulate endometrial cancer cell death. Selective targeting of TPRV1 by AEA, CBD, or other stable analogues may be an attractive research area for the treatment of estrogen-dependent endometrial carcinoma.”

They conclude by stating that; “Our data further support the evaluation of CBD and CBD-rich extracts for the potential treatment of endometrial cancer, particularly, that has become non-responsive to common therapies.”

    I have a ginger male cat which is not even 7 yo. he contracted feline leukemia fighting other stray cats on our plot. Thereafter, well some time after, he developed a lymphoma in his lungs, after intensive chemo he went into remission for 2 1/2 years, now, the lymphoma is back but this time in the kidney. he’s back on chemo but has lost a lot of weight and the vet say, he might get through but he will not subject him to another chemo session if in future so required, The lymphoma cannot be eradicated and it will reappear its just a matter of time and it might be sooner than expected.
    I have read about Cannabis oil and the benefits it has, I want to give my cat cannabidiol (CBD), it is said it will kill the stem cells thus destroying the lymphoma and cure my cat.

    I need to know where to get the right staff. I live in South Africa, and today the government announced that the use of dagga (Kind of cannabinoid) has been decriminalized! Now I don’t know anything about all this, but I want to cure my cat.

    Would you perhaps help my ginger, he also has the right to life. Thank you so much, Horst
