Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been found to be potently antineoplastic, or anti-cancer, however, delivering CBD to the appropriate tissue for a desired and successful dose can be quite challenging. CBD, along with conventional therapy, has been effective for many cancer types. In such cases, it has been noticed that CBD has an enhancer effect in the killing effect. Furthermore, smoking and vaping are quite popular methods of consumption, though most doctors do not want you using your lungs as a method of consumption.
Now of course, CBD can be eaten as well, as is the case with cannabinoids in general. However, CBD is deactivated in the stomach by stomach acids. Now, of course, there is the dropper method, where a tincture of CBD is dropped under the tongue where it is allowed to dissolve. This method gets it into the body, though does it get into all of the tissues. Furthermore, what if a very high dosage is required to be delivered to a very specific area? What then? Huh?
In many cases, the CBD is injected into the site, however, researchers are uncovered that “smart biomaterials” may be one solution that is preferable to injections.
Enter “Smart Biomaterials!”
Smart Biomaterials will be the preferred method of delivery when it comes to delivering CBD to the site of a cancer lesion, or tumor in the very near future. Smart Biomaterials are materials that are designed to work with the body. For example, a medicated film that can be applied to the skin of burn victim, left on and allowed to dissolve over time. These are “smart” bandages. For some time, many surgical materials have been designed to be left in the body to be absorbed. The category also includes “smart” gels that are molecularly designed to deliver drugs in a certain sequence.
