Marijuana’s cousin stops ovarian cancer in its tracks

Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer… One that my aunt has been fighting for three years now.

Although with chemo and radiation she’s already been pronounced cancer free once, the cancer is now back, forcing her to go through the fatigue, nausea, weight loss and general illness that go along with the treatment all over again.

In fact, chemo and radiation are extremely toxic… So toxic themselves that they could cause cancer if you didn’t already have it.

That’s why researchers have turned to more natural compounds in the hopes of finding a cure without the danger.

And, they recently found one in an unlikely place…

A plant that has been at the middle of a controversy since the 1930’s — cannabis sative.

Fights cancer on two fronts

Now, you may be thinking marijuana, but I’m actually talking about hemp.

You see, although many people think of hemp and marijuana as being the same thing, they are definitely not — the biggest difference being the fact that hemp, unlike marijuana, doesn’t contain THC (the psychoactive compound that makes you high and gets you addicted).

Where they’re alike is that they both contain cannabinoids — ones that have been shown to have real health benefits.

Now in two new studies, researchers at Sullivan University College of Pharmacy in Kentucky have shown that those cannabinoids found in hemp could be used to save you from ovarian cancer.

Here’s how…

In the first study, the researchers found that added hemp extract to cultured ovarian cells and found that the extract actually slowed down metastasis — basically, it prevented the spread of cancer to other parts of the body.

In the second study, the researchers found that the hemp slowed the secretion of a compound known as interleukin IL-1 beta.

Why is this important?

Because, interleukins produce inflammation that’s been linked to cancer development and progression. In other words by preventing interleukin secretion, the hemp could both protect against the development of ovarian cancer or slow it down if you’ve already been diagnosed.

In fact, according to the researchers the hemp slows ovarian cancer as well or even better than the common ovarian cancer drug, Cisplatin, without the dangerous toxicity of the drug.

Yep, it is as good as or better than the prescription drug option without the nausea, vomiting, hair loss and other horrible side effect the drug causes.

Harnessing the power of hemp

And, although when you think of cannabis, you may think of it being illegal, hemp is 100 percent legal and can be bought online.

You can purchase it as either an extract in tincture form or even as hemp oil in a softgel.

No worries, as we already talked about, it won’t make you high but could give you some big benefits on top of its power to defeat ovarian cancer, including:

  • Stress relief – Hemp extract or oil could help decrease your anxiety and get through your day with lower levels of stress.
  • Inflammation help – Hemp may help lower inflammation of the brain and nervous system.
  • Decreased pain – Many people use hemp oil to overcome chronic pain.

So, if you’re ready to stop ovarian cancer before it starts the natural way, consider harnessing the power.
