All of us know someone who has cancer or if you are lucky you may know someone who had cancer and beat it.
There is a lot of evidence that points to the fact that some cancers may be helped or even stopped by medical cannabis. The best ratio for cancer is a 1:1 ratio (eg. 7%THC:7%CBD). It has been proven that some cancers respond better than others, but some 4th stage cancers have responded in a positive way. You can take up to a gram a day. Most 30 ml bottles contain about 5 grams of cannabis. So you need to do some math to figure out how much to take. Always start low and go slow until you build to the amount you feel is helping you. Most people get results with even 500 mg/day (0.5 grams).
Even if it does not cause your cancer to retreat, at least it greatly reduces the pain and anxiety a cancer patient might suffer. There is so much to learn about this plant and how to use it and a lot of it is found out by just experimenting with it.
The THC is the part that actually appears to help kill the cancer cells and research thinks that the CBD keeps the cancer from spreading. There is so much more research to be done to know what all the benefits are and what the best way to consume (smoke, oils, edibles) might be for different types of diseases.
I know one thing for sure, if I was diagnosed with cancer or any other serious disease, I would try it and even if you want to do chemo, radiation and other treatments, it will still help your body to be less anxious, less nauseous, and you will sleep better. Sleeping properly is probably the best thing you can do to help your body heal.
The phrase “sleeping like a baby” is familiar to most of us. However, it seems that as we age, sleeping solid and restfully becomes less of a feat we can accomplish. Maybe because of responsibilities that are on our mind about work and family? Also, sometimes women in menopause will have hot flashes or insomnia that disrupt their rest at night. Sometimes medications can cause insomnia or if you work shift work your body becomes unable to regulate itself because of constantly changing sleeping times.
I know one thing for sure. If you get a solid 7 or 8 hours of sleep per night, your productivity at work or home will increase, you will feel mentally sharper and more focused and your overall mood will be happier. Also, when you get plenty of uninterrupted sleep your body has a chance to fix itself in areas where you may be physically having challenges. Your immune system will be stronger and your cortisol levels will be more able to remain normal.
How do you manage to get yourself back into this state? Some people use melatonin and it will help them sleep better. Others choose to try products such as CBD full spectrum hemp oil or cannabis oils. You can also seek out using medical cannabis if it is legal in your country. You can use high CBD medical cannabis and it will not only help you sleep, but it may help with other medical conditions such as anxiety. Ask your doctor and if they do not know, then ask to be referred to a medical cannabis clinic where the doctors are trained in use of medical cannabis for many physical and mental ailments.
I hope this helps you to get back to “sleeping like a baby”!
