How Cannabis Treats Skin Cancer
Could cannabis really help protect our skin?
Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer.
Between two to three million people worldwide are diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancers each year.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Current treatments are intensive and costly.
But what if there were another option? An option that was natural and safer.
Cannabis is an ancient medicine with modern implications.
Research indicates cannabis not only alleviates side effects from treating skin cancer like pain and nausea but can also address the root cause of the condition.
Here’s what you need to know about cannabis and skin cancer.
Types of skin cancer
Skin cancer is diagnosed into three main types; squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and melanoma. Each form of cancer is named after the type of cells it affects.
Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common types of skin cancers. Whereas, melanoma is the rarest form of skin cancer. However, melanoma is the most deadly.
Melanoma is responsible for 75% of skin cancer deaths. It also happens to be the second most common cancer for men between the ages of 20-39 and the second most common for women in the same age group. Unfortunately, these numbers are on the rise. Melanoma is currently the fifth most prevalent cancer among men and the sixth among women.
The primary cause for melanoma, along with basal and squamos skin cancers, is linked to damage from ultraviolet rays (UVs). This is because UV rays can cause the DNA in cells to mutate. When cells mutate, they can become cancerous.
Who’s at risk?
Although anyone can develop skin cancer, people with fairer skin are at a higher risk. This is because people who are naturally lighter have less melanin in their skin. Melanin provides protection against UV rays.
What can cannabis do?
Cannabis can help you in more ways than one. Especially if you have legal access to quality products.
Did you know cannabinoid receptors are found in almost every layer of our skin?
In fact, cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body in cell membrains. Researchers have identified two primary cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2.
CB1 and CB2 are part of what is referred to as the endocannabinoid system, or ECS. Discovered in the late 1980s, the ECS is a vital biological system that impacts nearly every major function in the human body.
How does the ECS work?
The ECS works similarly to a lock and key system. CB1 and CB2 are the locks while cannabinoids like THC along with endogenous cannabinoids (cannabinoids our body produces) are the keys. Present in all vertebra animals, the endocannabinoid system's primary role is to maintain homeostasis.
According to Michael Backes, author of Cannabis Pharmacy, there is evidence of CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the skin, from the nerves attached to hair follicles and even within the epidermis.
The primary active ingredients in cannabis, THC, and CBD, interact with these receptors.
While still not fully understood, there is ample evidence that suggests cannabis is capable of treating skin cancer due to the cancer-fighting properties of the cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids fight cancer

The most aggressive form of skin cancer is melanoma. It accounts for only about 1% of skin cancer cases but a majority of deaths.
Researchers in Europe discovered that the endocannabinoid system plays a vital role in fighting melanoma. A study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology revealed endocannabinoids facilitate apoptotic cell death in cancer cells.
Of those endocannabinoids, Anadaminde (AEA) was the most effective. The researchers from the study concluded:
“Overall, these findings demonstrate that AEA induces cytotoxicity against human melanoma cells in the micromolar range of concentrations through a complex mechanism, which involves COX-2 and LOX-derived product synthesis and CB1 activation.”
Another study in 2015 showed that cannabis triggered cell death in melanoma cells.
During the course of the study, mice infected with melanoma were treated with a combination of THC and CBD. The ratio of the mixture (1:1) was similar to the pharmaceutical drug, Sativex.
After administrating the substance to the mice, the researchers found that THC in conjunction with CBD induced death in melanoma cells.
This study has yet to be replicated with humans. Even so, the research is groundbreaking.
Cannabis inhibits harmful DNA activity
What other medical properties does this plant hold, just waiting to be discovered?
The impact of cannabis as a treatment for skin cancer extends beyond killing cancerous cells. Cannabis may also be key to preventing the onset of skin cancer.
A study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology revealed chemicals in cannabis are capable of stopping harmful DNA in its tracks. Researchers examined the effects of cannabinoids on human skin cells.
During the study, three different types of cannabinoids were tested:
The results from the study indicated CBD was the most effective at stopping unwanted DNA activity. Cannabigerol (CBG) showed some benefit. However, CBD was by far the most effective option.
Why is stopping unwanted DNA activity important when it comes to skin cancer?
Certain genetic factors can influence the growth of skin cell – a key factor in skin disorders, including skin cancer.
The findings from this study indicate cannabis can turn off this harmful DNA activity. The researchers from the study even concluded:
“Phytocannabinoids cannabidiol and cannabigerol are transcriptional repressors that can control cell proliferation and differentiation. This indicates that they (especially cannabidiol) have the potential to be lead compounds for the development of novel therapeutics for skin diseases.”
Our knowledge of cannabis in relation to skin cancer is still developing.
Very few studies have yet to explore this topic in depth.
Meanwhile, there are nearly 9,500 people in the United States alone who are diagnosed with skin cancer every day.
As a schedule 1 drug, researchers have struggled to explore cannabis to its full potential.
But people facing skin cancer today can’t wait. They need options today. Cannabis may not be a cure-all but its therapeutic qualities are beyond evident.

HEMP OIL VS. CBD OIL: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
While they are similar in some ways, there are important differences between hemp oil and CBD oil. As a consumer, it’s easy to get confused by phrases such as “cannabis oil” and “marijuana oil,” especially when many companies seem to use these terms interchangeably. Let’s take a closer look at hemp oil and CBD oil to learn how to distinguish the two.
What Is Hemp Oil?
Hemp oil is fabricated from the plant called hemp. In other words, it is a hemp extract taken from the seeds of the plant. While this type of oil can be extracted from all plants in the cannabis genus, industrial hemp is the only plant used for hemp oil. This type of hemp is specifically produced industrially and the amount of psychoactive substances that are contained in it is minimal.
Usages of Hemp Oil:
Hemp oil is great for cooking and a full of nutrients. It can provide a crispy and nutty taste to foods and can be a wonderful replacement for olive oil in salads.
It is a great natural moisturizer that can be used after a shower.
Hemp oil can be the base for different forms of plastic, instead of petroleum.
It is used in the production of paints that are more eco-friendly than petroleum-based paints.
It can be used as bio-diesel fuel, like other vegetable oils.
Hemp oil is used for making lotions, soaps and even some foods.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the short form of the term cannabidiol oil. Cannabidiol is a natural component of industrial cannabis or hemp. CBD oil is cannabis oil that has a significant content of cannabidiol. It is made from the flowers, leaves and stalks of hemp and not just from its seeds like hemp oil. CBD oil has become very popular in the medical marijuana industry, because it can be helpful in the treatment of various conditions without the typical intoxicating effects of marijuana use.
Usages of CBD Oil:
Can be used in the treatment of cancer .
It is used in the treatment of inflammatory disorders, anxiety, depression, seizures and neurodegenerative disorders.
Can be used in the treatment of epilepsy.
The Crucial Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil
Hemp and marijuana are cousins in the plant world, but marijuana has a much higher THC content than hemp. Hemp oil contains low levels of CBD – typically less than 25 parts per million – while CBD oil can be up to 15% CBD.

CBD VS. Pharmaceuticals: How Do They Compare?
In early 2017, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) released a comprehensive report about the health benefits of cannabis. There is still plenty more to be studied on this wondrous plant, yet studied did find that cannabis compounds, like CBD, have huge potential in chronic pain management. But, will CBD ever replace pharmaceutical drugs? Here’s how they compare
CBD vs. Pharmaceuticals: How do they compare?
NASEM’s study confirmed that there is substantial evidence that cannabis is useful in the treatment of some common and severe medical ailments. The include chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, all conditions which would otherwise require the use of harsh pharmaceutical drugs.
Already, pharmaceutical companies have created cannabis-like drugs for multiple sclerosis and nausea and vomiting. Yet these options are often expensive and are not widely available to patients.
The pharmaceutical choices for chronic pain are far worse. Most patients are prescribed opioid pain medications, which are addictive and come with a high risk of fatal overdose.
Rates of opioid overdose are on the rise. In 2015, over 33,000 people died after overdosing on opioids. Some opioids available today are considered 30 to 50 times stronger than heroin, which has long been thought to be one of the most addictive narcotic drugs.
As a result, many patients turn to cannabis over opioid painkillers. One such patient was Arby Barosso, the man behind a rising CBD hemp oil company, Green Roads World. After years of battling arthritis and injuries, Barosso found himself addicted to his pain medication.

family CBD VS. Pharmaceuticals: How Do They Compare?
Arthritis of the hip landed Barosso a 20-day visit to the hospital which prevented him from playing football and resulted in multiple surgeries. After facing substantial time in the operating room, Barosso was left with handfuls of prescription drugs. Morphine, Demerol, and Percoset all made the list
His addiction to pharmaceutical drugs came at a high price.
I was going through a tough time and I allocated that time into doing a lot of research, which enforced my decision to fully immerse myself into the CBD industry.
Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons for medical cannabis recommendations. Specifically, many patients are seeking cannabis products high in cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a cannabis chemical that doesn’t cause the famous “high”. Instead, research suggests that CBD is a strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic. It is also considered safe to consume, with no known side effects.
For Barosso, CBD was influential in recovery.
