How Does It Cure Cancer?

In each cell, there are sphingolipids that manage the life and death of cells. When lipid molecules (ceramide) remains high then cell death is sure, but cell continues to grow if ceramide level is low. Well, there is an inner cannabinoid system present within living cells which waits in order to get activated.

The cannabinoids found in the oil works directly on the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). ECS is composed of CB1 AND CB2 which works with cannabinoids for promoting homeostasis for metabolic process. The endocannabinoid present within the body is not enough and it is then that patients turn to supplementary cannabinoids which combine with CB receptors activating them and helping the body to achieve homeostasis and helps in fighting diseases. When the CB receptors get activated it causes a condition known as apoptosis that triggers the death of cancer cells. It also inhibits the growth of the cancer cells.

Basically, CBD and THC, which is mostly found in indica plants, travels to CB2 receptor sites in the spleen, from where the immune cells attacks and kills the cancer cells. Cannabis oil can help the body to gradually become stronger and more resistant.
