Blue November: the benefits of cannabis against prostate cancer

CBD has been successfully tested not only to minimize symptoms but against tumor growth and is a form of cancer prevention.

Blue November is an international campaign that aims to make people aware of the fight against prostate cancer and the importance of early diagnosis through the exam. Currently, this is the sixth most common type of cancer in the world and is responsible for the death of thousands of men every year.

Although very common, prostate cancer has a high cure rate if the diagnosis is made early and treatment is started as soon as possible.

What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?

It is important to inform that prostate cancer manifests itself silently. At first, men usually do not experience any specific symptoms, but some signs of a gland abnormality include:

• difficulty urinating;

• weak stream of urine;

• the man starts to want to urinate more frequently;

• drops of urine on underwear;

• difficulty getting an erection or maintaining it;

• pain when urinating or expelling semen;

• blood in the semen;

• the urge to urinate comes on suddenly;

• even after urinating, the individual has the feeling that their bladder is still full;

• pain in the area of ​​the anus or testicles.

Heads up! Presenting one or more of the symptoms mentioned above may not mean the presence of prostate cancer. Therefore, the importance of taking the preventive exam!

Currently, there is no concrete way to prevent the disease. Men over 50 are recommended to have blood tests and digital rectal examinations every year. Those with a family history should start annual checkups earlier. However, according to doctors, some habits can reduce the chances of a patient developing the disease. These habits consist of exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy diet, maintaining weight and not smoking.
What are the benefits of Cannabis in the treatment of prostate cancer?

A study by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), South African scientists Lesetja Raymond Motadi and Nonhlanhla Moleya identified that cannabidiol (CBD) plays an important role in reducing the growth of tumors, slowing the progression of cancer of prostate.

From different concentrations of the full spectrum extract of Cannabis and CBD combined with the anticancer drug Cisplatin, the researchers found that mainly cannabidiol should be part of the therapies against this type of cancer.

For those who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, Cannabis can be a great ally to directly attack the tumor and also to alleviate the symptoms of treatment.

Cannabis is quite effective in the treatment of some diseases, due to its therapeutic character. In the form of CBD (Cannabidiol), it acts, among other things, in muscle relaxation, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic.

In cancer treatments, it is already used not only to minimize symptoms but also as a way to prevent prostate cancer.


24,600 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. This represents 20% of all new cancer cases in men in 2022.

4,600 Canadian men will die from prostate cancer. This represents 10% of all cancer deaths in men in 2022.
