CBD for CANCER?
In 2013 I lost my beloved dog Eva Chan to Cancer (Hemangiosarcoma).
Her death had a profound effect on me. I felt responsible for her suffering, but didn't know what to do.
Eva was a very special dog. I am not sure how to describe it. She was just that kind of dog that touched your heart. Other people noticed this quality in her as well. She was calm, easy, and yet very protective and loyal. She seemed to teach you things just by being around her.
Eva Chan was the kind of dog you only find once or twice in your life.
Since her death, I have been deeply interested (and appalled) by the cancer epidemic in dogs and cats. When Eva died in 2013, there was little to no information on how to use Cannabis to treat animals with Cancer.
If I had only known then what I know now.
I never used CBD or THC while my dog Eva Chan suffered through her battle with Cancer. Why? Because I was actually terrified it would kill her. I couldn’t find any information on the subject, there were no products that had reliable dosing information, and no anecdotal testimonials to read.

Cancer is the #1 disease-related killer of dogs and cats.
An estimated 6 million dogs and nearly 6 million cats will be diagnosed with cancer this year. The Veterinary Cancer Society states: cancer is the leading cause of death in 47% of dogs, especially dogs over age ten, and 32% of cats.

I have always seen and known the power of Cannabis as a plant and even wrote an essay on the legalization of Cannabis- back in 1995!
Since then- and particularly in the last few years- the amount of information on the internet and in clinical studies has grown exponentially.
Over 15,000 studies have been done on Cannabis and Cancer, and the message is clear.
The use of cannabinoids as anticancer agents has positive results.
In “The use of cannabinoids as anticancer agents” Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry, Volume 74, 6 March 2017, Pages 57 the study shows:
The endocannabinoid system may play a dual role on the regulation of tumor generation and progression.
Administration of THC and other cannabinoids exert anticancer actions in animal models of cancer.
THC and other cannabinoid receptor-ligands induce cancer cell death and inhibit tumor angiogenesis.
Cannabinoids enhance the anticancer activity of other antineoplastic agents in animal models of cancer.
Cannabinoids are currently being tested as anticancer agents in phase I/II clinical studies
In essence, cannabinoids exert palliative effects on some cancer-associated symptoms. In addition, evidences obtained during the last fifteen years support that these compounds can reduce tumor growth in animal models of cancer. Cannabinoids have been shown to activate an ER-stress related pathway that leads to the stimulation of autophagy-mediated cancer cell death. In addition, cannabinoids inhibit tumor angiogenesis and decrease cancer cell migration.
WHAT DOES THC DO??
1. THC is anti-proliferative. Meaning that it inhibits cancer cells from reproducing. One of the hallmarks of cancer cells is that they keep replicating, they are immortal and unstoppable, that’s the problem. “THC inhibits protein synthesis so that tumors cannot grow.” (Dr. Donald Tashkin Pulmonary and Critical care UCSF)
2. An antiangiogenic effect. Here THC inhibits the ability of cancer cells to grow new blood vessels. Stop blood vessel formation and you prevent cancers from feeding and oxygenating thus encouraging their demise. (My dog Eva's Cancer spread from her leg to her lungs- all through the blood vessels)
3. Anti-metastatic effect. THC prevents cancers from spreading from the main tumor into other parts of the body. Keeping a primary tumor from metastasizing is of paramount importance in reducing death rates in cancers. The mets are which generally kill the patient by disrupting organ function and starving the patient of vital nutrients.
4. THC has a powerful apoptotic effect. Meaning that THC induces cancer cells to commit suicide. This is a feature of normal cells but malignant cells have lost that ability so they live forever. This effect hastens the death of cancer cells while leaving normal cells untouched.
5. THC stimulates CB receptors on tumors to produce ceramide. Ceramide is a compound that enters cancer cells and inactivates the cell’s energy source the mitochondria. This leads to cell death.
Anecdotally, THC and CBD have shown success with Cancer patients. Cannimal's first patient was a Cancer dog, the handsome Toby.
HAPPY CANNIMAL: VERA
Vera uses both the Eva’s Blend Formula as well as the Cannimal Gold Concentrate- (This testimonial is incredible and very special to me for many reasons!)
Vera is a 12 year old Golden Retriever who was diagnosed with Cancer earlier this year.She has had one limb amputated to try to remove the cancer. Vera has been using Eva’s Blend Cancer Support Formula, as well as our Cannimal Gold Concentrate and Rick Simpson Oil (RSO is not available through Cannimal as we are not currently licensed to sell medical Cannabis in Florida where Vera lives)
“We started using Cannimal Eva’s Blend formula and the Cannimal Gold Concentrate as well as RIck Simpson Oil in February 2018. We feel the combination of products is helping Vera immensely. She has lived 5 months longer than expected and she’s doing great despite the fact that the doctors say her cancer is still spreading - she is still eating great, wants to play and my mom feels the Eva’s Blend Formula is what really perks Vera up.” -Nicole
Any animal who needs an immunity boost will benefit from consistent use of our Eva’s Blend Formula- this product combines the Power of Full 🌈 Spectrum CBD with the tumor fighting- immunity power of Turkey Tail Mushroom.
CBD also modulates the THC receptor and is essentially a “down regulator” of THC... as such the Cannimal Gold Concentrate can assist animals dealing with the effects of high doses of THC (such as RIck Simpson Oil) in their medical treatment.
KEYS TO SUCCESS
It does appear however, that there are certain key elements for success:
Treatment needs to start early in cancer tumor diagnosis
The quality of the oil and consistency of the oil used for treatment
Oil needs to be tested and proven to be Pesticide, Metals and Toxin free.
Omega 3 rich diet free from contaminants an processed foods.
Strong belief it can work and commitment to the treatment is necessary!
Cancer is a unique issue that needs a powerful cure. But the question remains...

This slide show illustrates, four months worth of applications of a whole plant extract, Cannabis Oil. This was achieved with using multiple strains of the Cannabis plant. Our veterinarian informed our cat had feline leukemia and there was nothing that could be done. They suggested euthanasia as a remedy, we chose to use Cannabis oil.
