The Disappearance of Tumors Using CBD

Getting rid of tumors with CBD

The discovery of a tumor in your beloved pet can be a distressing experience. As responsible pet parents, it’s natural to explore every avenue for their well-being. In recent years, the spotlight has turned to CBD for tumors in pets, for it’s many potential benefits against tumors. In this blog, we’ll explore the emerging role of CBD for pets with tumors, and how it can help support pets facing this health challenge.

What is a Tumor?

Try not to allow the word ‘tumor’ to scare you too much. Dog tumors are no different than the tumors affecting us. A tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue that develops when cells divide and grow uncontrollably. In pets, tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Benign tumors tend to stay localized and are less aggressive, while malignant tumors can invade surrounding tissues and spread to other parts of the body.

Research on CBD for Tumors & Cancer

FSHE is an effective anti-tumor and anti-cancer agent, making CBD oil for dogs with cancer the perfect option for tumors in dogs.

Research shows that cannabis and CBD have numerous cancer killing properties. CBD has been shown not only to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells but to kill cancer cells that have already formed.

A research study conducted by A.B. Hancock Jr. Memorial Laboratory for Cancer Research determined ‘the antiproliferative and apoptotic effects produced by some of these pharmacological probes [CBD] reveal that the endocannabinoid system is a promising new target for the development of novel chemotherapeutics to treat cancer.’

Now, let’s put those words into ‘human’ terms. The term apoptosis refers to cell suicide. In a healthy, normal body, cells that are beginning to become abnormal cells that just aren’t right will die at their own will to make room for healthy cells. When your dog has a tumor, the apoptosis switch may be turned on (or may not), but if it is on it’s not working right. That being said, this study showed the cell suicide button for bad cells is turned back on when CBD is introduced to the body. 

Taking a look at another study, published by Oncogene, researchers made another breakthrough by discovering CBD stops or slows down the growth of cancer cells in mice with pancreatic cancer and mice with bladder cancer. In addition, the use of CBD prevented future cancer growth in the mice.

That’s a major finding and it’s extremely important to understand here when we are talking about antitumor effects of CBD oil. 

According to research, CBD for dogs with cancer has been shown to:

Most importantly, it helps with your pet’s quality of life!

P.S.- The findings from all this research are often applied to both human and veterinary medicine. Amazing, right?

Can CBD kill Tumor Cells?

When your dog (or you) have a tumor, you are often prescribed some type of pharmaceutical medication. The problem with pharmaceutical medicine is it usually gets rid of both the bad guys and the good guys. We don’t want good cells to die- we only want the bad cells to die so the good ones can continue fighting on the frontlines. 

Our soldiers need to stay strong, but pharmaceutical medications don’t generally allow that to happen.

A study published by IMIBIC in Spain found that cannabis is specific about which cells are targeted. Guess what? Cannabis only looks for the bad guys. Basically, it fights with the good guys in the body and makes sure the bad guys don’t win!

The National Cancer Institute even states “cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their non-transformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.”

CBD for Dog Tumors: Success Stories

Olivia the Maltipoo

Even old dogs can be treated with CBD without side effects. Pharmaceutical medications are often strayed away since their bodies aren’t able to handle the intensity of them, but with CBD, you’re offered a side-effect free, safe way to treat.

Olivia was adopted in October 2014 when she was 8 years old. She had various apparent moles on her body when she was first adopted. By 2017, her moles had become scaly, hard growths. She appeared to be covered in wart-like tumors. The largest tumor was just above her hind leg.

In December 2017, she was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease. She was taking several pharmaceutical prescriptions to work as anti-inflammatories. 

Prior to beginning a CBD regimen, she was weaned off her prescription medication.

The recommendation for Olivia? Clean out her tumors daily with hydrogen peroxide and water. Apply REMEDY CBD Salve topically to each growth twice per day. She was also provided 1 mL of HEAL Full Spectrum Hemp Extract orally each morning and night. 

Within only two weeks, Olivia’s tumors were noticeably smaller and several had completely fallen off. The largest tumor, the one above her hind leg, had reduced in size by half. 

Olivia continues to take HEAL orally and REMEDY topically each day. Her owner has reported the remaining tumor continues to shrink.

The Black Lab, Clara

In January 2017, another senior dog (10 years old) named Clara was suffering from a 4-inch round tumor on her chest and another 2.4-inch round fatty tumor on her back. She was also suffering from hair loss at the tumor sites.

Clara began a regimen of REMEDY CBD Salve once daily. She also received 1 mL of HEAL Full Spectrum Hemp Extract in the morning and in the evening for a total of 2 mL per day.

Within four months, the 2.5-inch tumor had shrunk, popped, and healed completely. Within 48 hours following the healing, hair growth began at that tumor site. During that same four-month period of time, the 4-inch tumor shrank to 1.5 inches. 

Clara continues to take HEAL orally and REMEDY topically each day.

Jolene: Anxiety and Tumors

Jolene Before After 9

Jolene was suffering from severe anxiety. She was particularly anxious during thunderstorms and would begin barking frantically and pacing hysterically. She also had a large wart-like tumor on her back left paw. Jolene experienced pain walking on this paw and was no longer able to run and play.

The regimen for Jolene was 1 mL of CALM Full Spectrum Hemp Extract once daily and 20-30 minutes prior to a potential episode of extreme anxiety.

We started treating her growth with our Remedy salve, which contains 150mg of full-spectrum CBD as well as essential oil of eucalyptus, peppermint and arnica. Any time we see dogs who have warts, cancerous tumors or benign ones, we use this salve to get rid of them.

The tumor growing on Jolene’s paw went through several phases of decay. Over the course of about a month and a half, we watched it slowly die and decrease in size until it was completely gone.

Jolene has been tumor-free for almost three months now and is back to loving life outside. If and/or when a new one appears, we know how to deal with it!

Mast Cell Tumors in dogs Miss Daisie's MCT tumor progress with CBD Dog Health CBD for cancer in dogs Sweet Miss Daisie 

This lovely 14-year-old came to my rescue farm with very poor health! With a massive mast cell tumor on her back and just above her tail, she could barely use her hind legs.

She was given 1 ml of EASE Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (CBD) in the morning and 1 1/3 ml of HEAL Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (CBD) in the night. We also applied REMEDY Full Spectrum CBD Salve directly to the tumor on her back twice a day.

Next, Daisy’s tumor shrank significantly! Her tumor decreased by one third just within the first month. Also during that month, the growth popped, oozed and completely detached from the spinal area. Yes, it was gross! But you do what you got to do to make sure our fur babies are happy.

Then, four months later – NO MORE TUMOR! Daisy started swimming again, barking, jumping, and loving life.

Henri the Tabby Cat

Henry, a beautiful 3-year-old tabby had a growth on his left front paw between his middle toes. The growth was extremely hard and would occasionally crack and bleed. His traditional veterinarian recommended prescription ointment to ease the pain, but never thought the actual growth would clear up.

Henri’s owners decided to give CBD a try. They rubbed REMEDY on his growth twice per day; once in the morning and once in the evening. 

Within three days, Henri’s growth between his toes had stopped bleeding and became softer. By week 2, Henri’s growth was completely gone. 

Henri continues to utilize NOURISH CBD for cats to keep his paws soft and prevent the growth from returning.

CBD for Tumors in Dogs, Cats, & Pets

In conclusion, the potential benefits of CBD for tumors in pets offer a ray of hope in the realm of holistic pet care. While ongoing research continues to unveil the nuanced relationship between CBD and tumors, early findings indicate its promise in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and supporting traditional treatments.

  1. Anti-Tumor Properties: CBD has demonstrated anti-tumor effects by inducing cell death, inhibiting the growth and spread of cancer cells, and reducing the formation of blood vessels that supply tumors.
  2. Anti-Inflammatory Action: Chronic inflammation is often associated with the development and progression of tumors. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties may help mitigate inflammation and create an environment less conducive to tumor growth.
  3. Support for Conventional Treatments: CBD may complement traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy by enhancing their effectiveness while mitigating some of the associated side effects.
