CBD suppositories may be more effective than other methods of administering CBD for conditions located in the pelvic area, including prostate issues. CBD suppositories bring the CBD in direct contact with the nerve endings and cannabinoid receptors in the colonic tissue where the CBD can be absorbed rapidly to the pelvic area; rather than having to travel to the prostate through the bloodstream when CBD is taken orally. CBD suppositories can also offer a practical alternative to patients unable to ingest CBD orally. 

 

CBD Oil for Prostate Cancer

At the moment research is still unclear about the possible use of CBD to treat prostate cancer. Some animal studies show that CBD could help prevent prostate cancer cells from growing, developing and spreading but as yet this has not been confirmed. However, CBD has been found effective in alleviating pain in cancer patients and also helping with the side effects of cancer treatments such as nausea caused by chemotherapy. CBD may also be able to help with the emotional impact of prostate cancer by relieving anxiety and depression.  

Can Hemp Oil Cause Prostate Cancer?

No, hemp oil has not been associated with causing prostate cancer. “Hemp oil” is a term that can refer to oil extracted from the hemp plant seeds which, although nutritious, contains little or no CBD. “Hemp oil” can also refer to oil extracted from the leaves, flowers and stalks of the hemp plant, containing powerful cannabinoids, including CBD. CBD oil can be useful in relieving the symptoms of prostate cancer and the side effects of cancer treatments.

Does CBD Oil Help with Enlarged Prostate?

CBD oil may not be able to cure prostate issues but it is recognized for its ability to relieve the symptoms of an enlarged prostate including inflammation, discomfort and pain. CBD suppositories in particular may help ease the strain put on the rectum by an enlarged prostate. Read more about CBD for Leukemia Treatment

Can CBD Oil Lower PSA Levels?

PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is a protein produced by the prostate and PSA levels are tested to measure prostate health. High levels of PSA can indicate prostate cancer. There is no conclusive evidence that CBD oil can or cannot lower PSA levels. However, there are anecdotal reports that CBD oil may help to lower PSA levels. In addition, CBD oil can be effective in relieving the symptoms of high PSA levels including pain.

Does CBD Oil Shrink Prostate?

Although there is no evidence that CBD oil can reduce the size of an enlarged prostate there are numerous anecdotal stores of people who have used CBD oil, in combination with conventional treatments, to shrink a prostate tumor. Most of the studies related to CBD oil’s effect on the prostrate focus on CBD’s ability to relieve the symptoms (pain, nausea etc.) of prostate issues rather than CBD’s effectiveness to shrink prostate.
