Cancer kills more Americans than any other factor besides heart disease. But even with the full weight of the world’s top health organizations thrown at it, effective cancer treatments have been scarce.
Recently, a large part of this weight has shifted to studying a potential new cancer killer: cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that your body uses to self-regulate. Some are made in your body, some are made by plants, and we’ve even learned how to synthesize some cannabinoids in a lab.
CBD and its less famous “alma mater” cannabinoid CBG, are two of the main targets of modern anticancer research. They are extracted from the hemp plant and work inside your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to help keep your body in a state of harmonized homeostasis. They have no dangerous side effects and won’t get you high.
But what can these seemingly harmless plant compounds do against one of the greatest killers of all time?
Cancer is a grower. It gets cells in your body to ignore their normal life cycle and keep growing and spreading long past their expiration date. But somehow when CBD gets involved, we keep hearing things like:
“Tumor size was significantly smaller in the CBD-treated group than in the control group. In addition, the mean tumor weight of the CBD-treated group was significantly less than that of the control group.”
Somehow across many different studies on all kinds of cancer, cannabinoids keep managing to put a damper on cancer’s need to breed. But how are they doing this?
Turns out, CBD and other cannabinoids seem to have the ability to hack cancer. They find clever ways to break into the source code of cancer cells and program them to self-terminate.
Programming an unhealthy cell to die is called ‘apoptosis,’ and it’s a normal part of how your body self-regulates. Cancer has figured out a way to hack your body by turning off the natural process of apoptosis. CBD and other cannabinoids have found a way to hack cancer by turning it back on.
Researchers have seen this done via multiple mechanisms.
The amazing part is that CBD wreaks all this havoc inside cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.
Another way CBD and other cannabinoids fight cancer is by taming it.
Cancer turns problematic when it becomes unsatisfied with its tiny dystopian kingdom and decides to invade the surrounding territories (i.e. the rest of your body). But what makes a cancer decide to change from gentle to Genghis Khan?
Research points to another cell cycle regulator known as ID proteins. ID proteins are like a gas pedal for cell growth. When you were an embryo, high levels of ID proteins helped your cells multiply and develop you into a full-fledged human being. Later in life, your cells don’t need to grow as much, so your ID protein levels drop.
Problems arise when a cell’s gas pedal gets stuck. Dysregulated ID protein levels can make cells start dividing and spreading uncontrollably. This can lead to tumor growth and metastasis, as well as other developmental defects.
Your doctor can often tell what a cancer is going to do next by measuring its ID protein expression. But there’s something else keeping an eye on your ID proteins: CBD.
A common thread you’ll see in CBD cancer research is that cannabinoid treatments often lead to ID protein inhibition. It seems like CBD and other cannabinoids have the ability to dampen the aggressiveness of a cancer by regulating its ID proteins. This steals the cancer’s mojo, stopping it in its tracks and preventing it from invading nearby territory.
So, cannabinoids have a number of tricks for dealing with cancer. Researchers have seen CBD and CBG using these to fight many kinds of cancer all over the body. Here are a few of the most interesting cases we’ve seen.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It kills more American women than any other cancer besides lung cancer.
CBD has shown to inhibit breast cancer growth and metastasis in mouse models from labs around the world. One interesting case showed a reduction in the amount of secondary tumors that increased as the CBD dosage was upped.
Most of these cases involved CBD’s favorite apoptosis hack of causing oxidative stress on cancer cells. Two studies showed CBD inciting apoptosis via previously-unknown pathways which were shown to encourage breast cancer cell death. One study even saw CBD inducing autophagy, which means it got the breast cancer cells to eat themselves.
Lung cancer is the most widespread cancer on earth, however many cell models have shown CBD causing regression in lung tumors via apoptosis through a variety of pathways. CBD fed to mice with lung cancer also led to decreased cancer growth.
In addition, researchers have used CBD in multiple studies to tame lung cancer’s invasive tendencies. This effect varied depending on the dose, increasing and decreasing with the amount of CBD given.
Glioma tissue is speckled with cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). These are what researchers believe gives CBD its foothold behind enemy lines.
In studies on mice, CBD has been significantly effective against many glioma tumor subtypes. It’s shown to inhibit both tumor growth and tumor aggressiveness.
The anti-tumor effect seems to involve an apoptosis hack using oxidative stress to weaken and kill malignant cells. The reduction in invasiveness has been directly linked to CBD’s inhibition of ID proteins.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the deadliest kind of digestive cancer, just ahead of pancreatic and liver cancer.
CBG is the cannabinoid that seems to be particularly potent against CRC. Lab studies have shown CBG using apoptosis to reduce the growth and development of many colon cancer subtypes, causing mass death of CRC cells at high dosages.
CBD also plays a part in fighting CRC. Studies of colon cancer in mice have used CBD to produce a strong anti-tumor effect, causing oxidative stress in cancerous cells but protecting nearby healthy cells and DNA from oxidative damage.
One eye-catching example involved a cannabis extract with high-CBD content that researchers used to reduce the formation of precancerous tumors and polyps in colon and rectum linings. These tube-like growths often lead to cancer, but CBD treatment helped repair them before they became problematic.
Cell studies of prostate cancer have confirmed CBD as a potent inhibitor of prostate cancer cells. Investigation into the tissue of surrounding cells showed that CBD was somehow able to distinguish between cancerous and healthy cells, stopping only the malignant growths.
Cannabinoids are effective against many more kinds of cancers than just the ones listed here. We’ve heard from people who have used CBD to fight tumors in their throat, tonsils, liver, and more.

What People Are Saying About Pure Mana CBD+CBG for Cancer:
“Great news, CBG lowered cancer count 8 points for my friend’s dad. Doctors are amazed!”
- Ryan L.
“My mother in law has been taking Pure Mana since February and she says she hasn’t felt so good for a very long time. Even better news is, her doctor was very shocked that the tumor had shrunk significantly and knew it wasn’t from the chemo. The only thing outside of chemo that she uses is Pure Mana CBD/CBG oils, CBD MultiVitamins and CBD Melatonin. She and our entire families believe in these products.”
- Rey A.
“My health is the best it’s been in 2 years. I’m back to me, my normal self. The 2 cyst/tumors that were on my liver are actually like … non existent! I don’t have to have them drained now.”
- Victoria S.
“I was diagnosed with stage 2 throat and tonsil cancer and told I would need 12 weeks of chemo and radiation. I took the Pure Mana Full Spectrum CBG and CBD oil, Multivitamin Gummies, and used the Muscle Rub. Within a couple weeks, the 3x8cm lump in my throat felt way smaller. A week later my doctors confirmed it was pretty much gone.
I finished my treatments 6 weeks earlier than projected and BEAT CANCER! They were telling me 4-6 months of recovery before I could even think about eating or drinking. It only took my throat 5 weeks to heal, and I’m eating and drinking all kinds of things and they taste amazing.”
- Scott S.
Can CBD Also Help With the Side Effects?
Yes! CBD helps the Endocannabinoid System manage pain, inflammation, nausea, fatigue, the immune system, appetite, metabolism, hormones, anxiety, sleep, and every system and function of your body. CBD helps correct imbalances in the body by addressing and soothing the root cause as well as the symptoms so you can maintain optimal health and performance.
What Are the Best CBD and CBG Products for Cancer?
Full spectrum CBD+CBG oil is best for cancer because the combined effect of all the terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids create a ‘synergistic effect’ that works together to heal your body.
Pure Mana Full Spectrum contains no more than 0.3% THC, which is the federally legal limit. Broad Spectrum has a blend of all the terpenes and cannabinoids except THC, so this is the better option if you get drug tested.
Be sure to ask your doctor how to best use CBD alongside your other treatment plans.
