Every cell in your body is a complex structure of even smaller units with specific functions, called organelles. In healthy cells, the organelles efficiently work together to create proteins, generate energy, transport molecules, and perform other cell functions. They maintain balance and order in the body.
Cancer develops when a process inside the cell malfunctions in one of several possible ways. It's not instant; cancer develops in a multi-step process. Multiple mechanisms must fail before cells become cancerous.
Malfunctions, or Mutations, That Can Eventually Lead to Cancer
There are a variety of malfunctions or mutations that can create conditions that can lead to cancer, such as faster cell division.
In that case, the regulators that control cell division become inactive. Malfunctioning cells resist apoptosis (cell death), so they don't go through the process of cell death that is normal for non-functional cells; allowing mutations to replicate.
Whether benign or cancerous, a tumor develops as malfunctioning cells continue to divide without the usual controls telling them to stop. Over time, uncontrolled cell division results in additional cell mutations that can potentially develop into cancer.
Cellular Problems Call for Cellular Support
Studies indicate that CBD and its entourage of cannabinoids and terpenes can help relieve the pain and inflammation associated with cancerous cells. More significantly, they may arrest unregulated cell division and encourage cancer cells and tumor cells to die.
Here is some research on CBD, cannabinoids, and hemp terpenes on how they may help the body to fight cancerous cells and support healthy cell function.
CBD and the Minor Cannabinoids
Hemp is woven through human history. Like Jampha, which is the Tibetan word for 'loving kindness', hemp spores originated in Tibet. Archeologists traced ancient fossilized hemp spores to their beginning on a Tibetan plateau. With 28 million years to spread, hemp grew wild on several continents before human civilizations emerged. Ancient people from China, India, and Mesopotamia (and elsewhere) cultivated hemp for its strong and fast-growing fibers. Remnants of 8000-year-old hemp clothing were found in Mesopotamia and 6000-year-old threads in China.
Stroll through a lemon grove, pine forest, or blooming rose garden, and you will inhale plant terpene molecules. They perform essential functions for the plants, like repairing cells or repelling pests, and have distinct aromas. The hemp plant can have up to 200 plant terpenes, which is an exceptionally high number. Here are some of the plant terpenes we include in Jampha's full-spectrum CBD products with published anti-cancer and anti-tumor research.
Geraniol shows anti-tumor properties on skin, oral, breast, lung, colon, prostate, pancreatic, kidney, and liver cancers. It makes tumor cells more vulnerable to commonly used chemotherapy agents and constrains their ability to acquire adaptive resistance.
As you can see, plant terpenes are remarkable aids to your immune system. Each Jampha product includes a unique formulation of terpenes. CBD and Cannabinoids have potential cancer-fighting and other health properties.
Medical experts recommend only adding CBD to your healing regime under the knowledge and care of a physician, particularly if you are actively healing from cancer or have any liver damage.
