When cancer develops, the normal process of cell division and cell death breaks down. Abnormal cells form, old or damaged cells survive when they shouldn’t, and new cells form unnecessarily. Those extra cells can divide rapidly, forming a growth called a tumor. The primary difference between normal and cancer cells is the rate at which they grow and divide. Cancer cells are less specialized than normal cells, but they can still influence the healthy cells, molecules, and blood vessels in the surrounding area – the tumor microenvironment [5] .

There is no evidence to suggest CBD can cure skin cancer, but it may help alleviate some of the pain and inflammation related to the condition itself or your treatments for it.

Yes, CBD oil is legal as long as it contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol. If you want to try medical marijuana, you may need a prescription and/or a medical marijuana card, depending what state you live in.

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) [10] is the cannabinoid most highly concentrated in the Cannabis sativa (hemp) variety while tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is more highly concentrated in Cannabis indica (marijuana). Both have shown therapeutic potential for cancer.

Typical cancer treatments include excisional surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Different forms of skin cancer respond better to some treatments than others, and the severity of the cancer may influence your oncologist’s recommendations. If you’re looking for a natural remedy to add to your treatment, either to counteract the effects of cancer treatment or to help manage symptoms, CBD oil may be something to consider.

Unlike many other cannabis oils, Rick Simpson Oil is high in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana. THC is the chemical in marijuana that provides the “high.”

Why the interest in getting a law passed making it legal to possess CBD oil? CBD oil has been claimed as being beneficial in helping with chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, anxiety and depression, schizophrenia, and skin cancer. Yes, skin cancer!

When it was time for my next dermatologist’s appointment for a skin check, I had been taking CBD oil for a little over two months. I told my dermatologist that I was taking it, and she said that it is an anti-inflammatory so it definitely couldn’t hurt to take it. And for the first time in many appointments, I had nothing that needed biopsied or was causing concern.

CBD oil for skin cancer

Around that time, a CBD oil store opened near my home. I stopped by one day after work and asked if all CBD oils were as icky as the one I was taking. The salesperson told me what they sold was completely different. It was available in flavors, and I chose peppermint.

When I got home and tried it, I was amazed at the difference. What I purchased in the CBD oil store was completely clear, slightly flavored with peppermint (although no flavoring was necessary for me to be able to take it without gagging), and it didn’t have the consistency of motor oil. (You can see the difference in the photo below.) Lesson learned – buy good quality CBD oil, which makes it much easier to take.

After four weeks of once-daily ingestion, I couldn’t really tell a difference in how I felt from before I took it, but I noticed that my skin was looking clearer. However, trying to take the CBD oil was still causing difficulties, and I was ready to give up. It was that disgusting. I decided to instead put it directly on a couple of small areas of actinic keratosis on my face. I applied it at night before bed and covered with a bandage. Four nights later, I noticed that the areas were shrinking! This was encouraging.
