Apoptosis is a process that occurs in all healthy cells. Like all living beings, cells must be born, live their lives and then die. Healthy cells die in two ways: by necrosis and by apoptosis. In necrosis, a cell is damaged by an external force such as an injury, a poison, an infection or a drastic cut off of the blood supply. When necrosis occurs, it causes a lot of stress in the body through accompanying inflammatory responses.
Apoptosis, on the other hand, can be considered as the “clean” means of cell death. Between 50 and 70 billion cells in your body die every day as a result of apoptosis. And this is a good thing. The process of apoptosis leads to cell regeneration, to cell morphogenesis. To the maintenance of healthy tissues and to the elimination of harmful cells. Apoptosis is also predictable and is based on mechanisms with patterns within the DNA of the cell that causes it to “commit suicide” when the time has come.
How can CBD help?
As the name implies, “reactive oxygen species” contain high levels of oxygen. Cancer cells can not live in the presence of oxygen and must remain in anaerobic environments to survive. The presence of substances such as peroxides, super oxides and hydroxyl, which CBD seems to raise, can quickly lead to the death of cancer cells.
Interestingly, Italian researchers also discovered that certain types of prostate cancer cells. That have the ability to transform into mutated neuroendocrine-like cells were more sensitive to apoptosis induced by CBD. This may be further proof of the way in which the endocannabinoid system and cannabinoids function in all systems and levels of the body for healing: from the cannabis brain study grant offers new hope for patients’ neurons with fibromyalgia to the reproductive processes.
The research is also discovering how CBD and CBDA can affect the spread of cancerous tumors at the genetic level. In a Japanese study, CBDA stopped the spread of aggressive breast cancer by decreasing the mechanisms by which cancer cells travel throughout the body.
CBD has also shown the same response capacity in cancers of the lung, thyroid, cervix, liver and brain. Although the realization of the means for the trip of the cancer cells is not an apoptotic activity, it does demonstrate how CBD is capable of attacking the ways in which the cancer cells survive and spread at each apparent level and stage of development.
