Can Cannabis Oil Heal Cancer Wounds?

Can Cannabis Oil Heal Cancer Wounds?

According to a recent report, there is evidence that cannabis oil does heal cancer wounds and that its effect on human health could be far more beneficial than harmful.

A 44-year-old cancer patient from Canada confirmed that cannabis oil effectively healed his wound that was caused by cancer after many other drugs had failed to treat it. The patient who suffered from oral cancer had a large hole in his cheek. The cannabis oil reportedly helped to reduce the size of this wound.

The oil also reduced the pain that was caused by the wound. Other previous studies have also shown that cannabis can treat pain caused by cancer. This patients’ case is available in the journal, Pain and Symptom Management. The report encourages more researchers to do studies in order to determine the wound-healing properties of cannabis oil.

According to Dr. Vincent Maida, an associate professor in the Division of Palliative Care at the University of Toronto, ancient cultures have used cannabis extracts to treat their wounds. This confirms what has been known for ages regarding the use of cannabinoids in so many versatile areas.

The Effects of Cannabis on Health: New Evidence of Cannabis Benefits

Dr. Maida first attempted to treat the man’s wounds in 2016. The patient attempted taking opioid medications before visiting Dr. Maida’s clinic. The drug, however, failed to lessen the excruciating pain in his cheek and caused unpleasant side effects, such as constipation and drowsiness. He then asked Dr. Maida to prescribe medical cannabis to treat his pain. The doctor therefore gave him vaporized cannabis oil which greatly reduced the pain.

However, as the wound grew, the cancer prohibited the patient from using the drug. Maida then prescribed medical cannabis oil that was not in the form of vapor. The patient used this four times each day for nearly a month. The patient discovered that the hole on his cheek had stopped growing. The cannabis oil also reduced the size of the wound up to roughly 5% after a month.

Regrettably, the man passed away from cancer after using the oil for only a month. Perhaps if he had started treatment earlier, the end results would have been much different. However, researchers stated that his case provides potential evidence that might prove the positive effects of cannabis on one’s health. These kinds of stories give us hope that cancer can maybe be cured one day. One small step is that cannabis oil can possibly heal cancer wounds, relieving the suffering of those who get the disease.
