Cancers are dreaded because of their poor prognosis. Once a diagnosis of cancer is made, most people become depressed because they know that even if they are cured of the disease, it is a long road to recovery that could include treatments like chemotherapy. Chemotherapy may be the right treatment for getting rid of cancer, but it can lead to serious complications and problems. There is a new drug that is being used in the treatment of cancer and it is effective, but without the complications brought on by regular chemotherapy. This is the Cannabidiol extract from medical marijuana. There are several benefits of Cannabidiol when it is used to treat different forms of cancer. These benefits are listed here:
- Gets rid of stress, anxiety and depression: Cannabidiol is an extract from medical marijuana that will help in getting rid of stress, anxiety and depression. These symptoms are all related to the mind. Cancer does not cause these mood changes, unless the person is suffering from brain tumor. The stress, anxiety and depression are present because of the presence of a deadly disease. These problems of the mind can also cause insomnia or lack of sleep. All these can be corrected with a very small dose of Cannabidiol. It will help mood elation and depression and other problems can be overcome.
- Reduces size of the tumor: The size of the tumor can also be reduced with the help of Cannabidiol. Though the medical marijuana extract does not help all patients with cancer, at least 50% of those who suffer from the disease can have a reduction in the size of the tumor. It does not matter if the cancer is a very serious form or a malignant form, it can still be reduced by using Cannabidiol.
- Gets rid of disease completely in some patients: Cannabidiol is not a one stop solution for all forms of cancer. It is not effective in some patients and will not help in reducing the size of the tumor in these patients. Also, it will not be able to get rid of the tumor in such patients. On the other hand, there are other patients who will be able to completely get rid of the tumor in other patients. Research is going on to find why only some people are cured of cancer while others are not being cured. Once the results of these researches are published, it will help to use other extracts of medical marijuana and also combination therapies with Cannabidiol to get rid of all types of cancers.
