CBD Hemp Oil helps aid in slowing the growth of cancer and/or cause death in cancer cells by blocking cell growth. CBD also has the ability in reducing some tumor cells from reproducing as well as reducing the spread of some types of cancer by preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors.
Studies show that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting the normal cells.
The action of CBD that aids in cancer treatments is its ability to decrease inflammation and change how cells reproduce.
A study in mice showed that CBD may have the potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer by protecting the colon against inflammation.
Another study showed that in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancers it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells.
In metastatic cancers, cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.

It can also help with the side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea, loss of appetite, pain, and fatigue.
