Apoptosis + CBD
Updated: Oct 19, 2020
A Major Reason to Take Full Spectrum CBD
People supplement with cannabinoids for many reasons. However, you rarely hear about people supplementing with cannabinoids specifically to create apoptosis. All the other amazing benefits aside, apoptosis should be way up there! And here’s why- The average human looses somewhere between fifty and seventy billion cells per day. Cells die in several ways, but apoptosis is the healthy and planned way to lose cells. Apoptosis is programmed cellular death and is critical for health.
Okay, thanks for the tidbit of info. Why should I care?
Apoptosis is necessary to get the body focusing on young healthy cells, rather than expending energy on the cells that are lingering around and draining resources.
Even more importantly, when cells do not commit apoptosis as planned, they become a problem. They bind up and create a malignant mass. Yes, that’s right, the big C word – Cancer. These stubborn cells must live in an anaerobic environment.
Supplementing with cannabinoids has been shown to increase the production of a group of substances called "reactive oxygen species." These include peroxides, super oxides, and hydroxyls. The exposure to extra oxygen turns the apoptotic response back on in these stubborn cells - letting their programmed deaths commence.
"There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of diseases as now, and all their discoveries are tending to the simple truth — that you can’t improve on nature." -Thomas Edison
