CBD Oil and Chemo-Induced Neuropathy

Neuropathy (damaged or dysfunctional nerves) can result from antineoplastic drug treatment (medication used to treat cancer). Neuropathy is a common side effect of chemo treatment. Chemo-induced neuropathy can result in weakened muscles, numbness, tingling in the extremities (CIPN), and pain. Cancer patients may get some relief from the symptoms of chemo-induced neuropathy with CBD. Although there is no method of preventing CIPN and other chemo-induced symptoms, CBD is a natural and safe way to help manage the pain of neuropathy.

Apply CBD creams to specific areas where chemo-induced neuropathy is causing irritation and discomfort. Add CBD to your wellness routine or use a CBD vape pen for chemo-induced neuropathy. CBD may also help reduce the anxiety and stress experienced by cancer patients.

CBD does not suit all patients. Before taking CBD consult with your doctor and discuss the best delivery method and CBD dosage for your chemo-induced neuropathy.

Taking CBD Oil During Chemotherapy

Always check with your doctor before taking CBD or any new supplement, especially if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Your medical condition and the type of treatment you are receiving will determine whether it is advisable to use CBD or whether there could be a possible negative interaction between CBD and chemotherapy medication.  CBD has been found to inhibit certain enzymes responsible for breaking down and absorbing drugs, thus limiting the efficiency of the medication.

This is why it is very important to let your doctor know before you try CBD oil during chemo treatment. CBD is not a cure or treatment for cancer but under medical supervision, it may be effective in treating some of the symptoms of cancer treatment in some patients such as nausea, lack of appetite, anxiety, insomnia, depression, neuropathy, and pain.

Discuss taking CBD oil during chemotherapy with your oncologist.
