Thyroid cancer is a type of cancer that affects the thyroid gland, which is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck that produces hormones. Thyroid cancer is quite rare, and tends to affect women more than men. It has a relatively high survival rate, with 90% of sufferers living at least 5 years after diagnosis.
There is encouraging data confirming cannabinoids’ potential utility when it comes to thyroid cancer, but these are mostly lab and animal studies. It is suggested that cannabinoids like THC and CBD may be useful in inflammation associated with thyroid cancer, as well as regulating dysfunctional hormone production, but clinical trials need to take place to confirm if any of this is true for humans.
