CBD Oil and Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women worldwide, contributing 25.8% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2020. Simply being a woman is the main risk factor for developing breast cancer. Although women have many more breast cells than men, the main reason they develop more breast cancer is because their breast cells are constantly exposed to the growth-promoting effects of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
Sixty-five percent of breast cancers are estrogen and/or progesterone receptor positive.
Estrogen receptor expression is a prognostic and predictive biomarker of response to endocrine therapy, which consists of the selective estrogen receptor modulator tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors, and the selective estrogen receptor degrader fulvestrant.
Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that is emerging as a potential therapeutic agent.
