Breast Health & your Endocannabinoid System

As our endocannabinoid anandamide circulates in the body, it’s interrupted by a molecule called FAAH that breaks it down. CBD blocks FAAH, slowing this breakdown so that it can continue circulating throughout and bringing balance to the body. CBD is known to lower inflammation, reduce anxiety, relieve pain, act as a neuroprotectant, and lower blood pressure. CBD is also able to interfere with cellular communication inside a tumor and cause it to self-destruct.

There are over 6 different pre-clinical scientific studies researching the effects of cannabinoids on breast cancer. Dr. Christina Sanchez, a female researcher in Spain, was the first to discover the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoids. Scientists compared anti-tumor properties of 5 different cannabinoids and found that CBD was the most potent anti-breast cancer substance. (Bleshing, 2015)
