Is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians?
Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants
The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
NCI reports suggest cannabis may protect against the development of certain types of tumors as well as kill tumor cells while protecting healthy ones. Anti-Tumor effects include induction cell death, inhibition of cell growth, inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion, metastasis and apoptosis. Types of treatable cancers using cannabis are liver, breast, uterus, pituitary, testicular, pancreatic, lung, brain and colon cancer.
