What is Lymphoma?
Lymphoma is characterized as the Cancer of your Lymphatic system. Your Lymphatic system consisted of three main parts, Lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen. The main function of the lymphatic system is to create white blood cells. White blood cells are your army against foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. In Lymphoma, there is an unprecedented and uncontrolled growth of cells in lymph tissue in the result of which the lymphatic system unable to work normally and causes severe damage to the body.
The types of symptoms of lymphoma are totally dependent on the location of Lymphoma. Lymph tissue appears through your body. For example, bone marrow is the part of your lymphatic system and bone marrow is present in almost all parts of the body. For this reason, Lymphoma can be located in any part or organ in the body and the symptoms depend on the location. Lymph nodes are present near the stomach and lungs. In the case of Lymphoma in this area, lymph nodes become swollen, creating digestive and respiratory symptoms of Lymphoma. When Lymphoma forms in your brain's lymph tissue, you'll feel cognitive symptoms.
Apart from location symptoms, some symptoms of Lymphoma are completely general and can appear in every type of Lymphoma. These symptoms are,
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle Fatigue
- Weight Loss
The most commonly used treatment of Lymphoma is Chemotherapy or radiation treatment. The main purpose of this treatment is to kill the Lymphoma cells.
Can CBD Oil Help in the treatment of Lymphoma?
Now the question is, can CBD oil help in treating Lymphoma? The answer is YES! CBD Oil helps manage Lymphoma symptoms and reduces the side effects of Lymphoma treatment. There is a well-organized mechanism behind the use of CBD oil for Lymphoma treatment. In this article, we are going to tell you about these mechanisms through which CBD oil helps in Lymphoma symptoms management and reduces treatment side effects.
CBD oil helps in Lymphoma treatment by interacting with the body's Endocannabinoid System:
The human body is equipped with a well-organized Endocannabinoid System which controls different aspects of the body. The Endocannabinoid system consists of a network of some receptors and cannabinoids. There two major types of Endocannabinoid receptors. CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. Both these receptors have the ability to bind with CBD oil and effecting body functions.
You are probably thinking that what is the relation between the Endocannabinoid system and Lymphoma? Well, you will be surprised to know that Lymphoma affects all parts of the body including the Endocannabinoid System. Apart from the Endocannabinoid system, CB1 and CB2 receptors are present throughout your body. CNS (Central Nervous System) contains a massive amount of CB1 receptors and the immune system contain a sufficient amount of CB2 receptors. There is a very important role of both these receptors in Lymphoma but CBD oil has the biggest impact on CB1 receptors particularly. CBD Oil tackles the potential sources of Lymphoma by interacting with CB1 receptors.
CBD Oil blocks a fatty acid type known as FAAH. These fatty acids break anandamide. Anandamide is the chemical in the body that controls different functions like pain perception and cell death. By blocking FAAH fatty acids, CBD oil increases the amount of Anandamide in the body. Anandamide improves the body's ability to kill Lymphoma and unnecessary cells. CBD oil contributes to the overall ability of the body in killing unwanted cells.
CBD oil has very strong anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. These properties are also related to the increasing amount of anandamide. CBD oil helps Lymphoma patients in fighting pain and inflammation by increasing the amount of Anandamide. CBD Oil reduces the amount of pro-inflammatory cells to calm the Lymphoma affected areas.
CBD Oil reduces the side effects of the treatment of Lymphoma:
Lymphoma is generally treated through chemotherapy. Chemotherapy has many side effects such as nausea. CBD oil has a very vital impact on the regions of the brain which are responsible for nausea. But the mechanism of this impact is totally unknown and it is not accepted medically also. CBD Oil also helpful in improving the mood of Lymphoma patients. CBD Oil relieves stress and bad feelings. Lymphoma is a very dangerous and highly brain affecting disease in which patients can get severe depression and anxiety. CBD Oil improves the level of anandamide in the brain which is very helpful in promoting feelings of happiness and calm. Though it is not proven medically, CBD Oil is also very helpful in the production of positive emotions.
Right CBD Oil Medicine for Lymphoma Treatment:

If you are going to use CBD Oil, you should start with a low dose. The low dose will be really helpful in investigating the impacts of CBD Oil on your body. After that, if the results are satisfying, you can increase the dose periodically.
CBD Oil can be helpful in treating Lymphoma and the side effects of Lymphoma treatment. CBD oil does so by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system receptors. CBD Oil increases the amount of Anandamide chemical which is very helpful in fighting the side effects and symptoms of Lymphoma. You should decide the right dose of CBD oil by consulting with your doctor.
