Cannabis Oil as a Breast Cancer Treatment (Estrogen Positive)?
Can the cannabis oil treatment (orally) cause an estrogen positive breast cancer tumor to grow? This has been suggested on other sites, and I hope it's not true. Does the ratio 1:1 make a difference in this case?
Hi Gael. Thank you for your question regarding using cannabis oil for estrogen positive breast cancer.
Firstly, I don't know which sites you are referring to that suggest the ingestion of cannabis oil can cause estrogen positive breast cancer tumors to grow, but we have not heard of this. In fact, research proves the exact opposite!
Here's an article from the National Cancer Institute website on the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids... National Cancer Institute
Here's the paragraph about cannabinoids for breast cancer...
"An in vitro study of the effect of CBD on programmed cell death in breast cancer cell lines found that CBD induced programmed cell death, independent of the CB1, CB2, or vanilloid receptors. CBD inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines, inducing apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner while having little effect on nontumorigenic mammary cells.Other studies have also shown the antitumor effect of cannabinoids (i.e., CBD and THC) in preclinical models of breast cancer."
The sentence I'd like to highlight is...
"CBD inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell
lines, inducing apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner while having little effect on nontumorigenic mammary cells."
That says it all. The other thing I'd like to say is that NOTHING gets printed or published by the National Cancer Institute unless it's been 100% verified, so you can trust that this information is correct. In fact, after all of the studies that have been done world-wide on cannabis and cancer, they have yet to find a type of cancer (or cancer cell) that doesn't respond to the induction of cannabinoids.
When a cancer doesn't respond to cannabinoids, 9 times out of 10 it's because the cannabis oil is not high grade (and the cannabis used was probably crap) or it hasn't been made correctly. This is such a big problem. I did an interview with Rick Simpson and he agreed that this is the biggest reason why people don't get results from using the oil. With that said, if you do have access to some high grade cannabis, here's a "must watch" video on how to make the oil for maximum potency... How to Make a Small Batch of Rick Simpson Oil
. You can also read about how to make the correct ratio on Rick's official website here... Make the Medicine
Hope this helps.
Good luck and all the best,
