According to Prostate Cancer Canada… Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men. One in eight men will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.Prostate cancer is a disease where some prostate cells have lost normal control of growth and division. They no longer function as healthy cells.
A cancerous prostate cell has the following features:
• Uncontrolled growth
• Abnormal structure
• The ability to move to other parts of the body (invasiveness).
Prostate cancer can be slow-growing and some men who develop prostate cancer may live many years without ever having the cancer detected. It is important to get screened regularly so that if you do develop prostate cancer, the appropriate action can be taken. A significant proportion of prostate cancers, if untreated, may have serious consequences.
The stage of the cancer will determine which types of treatments will be necessary, and of the available treatments and many of the treatments above have unpleasant side effects that can affect your quality of life.
How does Cannabis play a role as a treatment for Prostate Cancer.. “The body has an endocannabinoid system that reacts to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Cannabis has two principle cannabinoids; THC and CBD that responds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors. They act like messengers in different parts of the body. The cancer cells in the prostate carry certain receptors where cannabinoids can attach to. When cannabinoids hook onto a CB2 receptor the cancer cell stops increasing. Both THC and CBD are active in combating prostate cancer.” Read full Marijuana Doctors article click here
