new study published by the National Institute of Health has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors can combat skin cancer.

Activiation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors helps with a number of diseases and ailments, including skin cancer according to this new study.

According to researchers at the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Pisa in Italy; “Cannabinoids are implicated in the control of cell proliferation, but little is known about the role of the endocannabinoid system in human malignant melanoma [the deadliest form of skin cancer]. This study was aimed at characterizing the in vitro antitumor activity of anandamide [a naturally occurring cannabinoid]in A375 melanoma cells.”

The study concludes that; “Overall, these findings demonstrate that AEA [anadamide]induces cytotoxicity against human melanoma cells in the micromolar range of concentrations through a complex mechanism, which involves COX-2 and LOX-derived product synthesis and CB1activation”. This demonstrates that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – which cannabis does naturally – has strong anticancer capabilities.

A study released earlier this year found similar results; using cannabinoids on mice, researchers were able to reduce skin cancer by 90% in just 20 weeks.

  1. RSO on my skin cancer wound for 10 days with a little tincture to keep in moist and it was like it was never there. That’s why I try to get as many people on cannabis as possible. I believe the prophylactic effect will save many a life. Smoke for fast temporary relief but consider edibles, RSO to the gums, eating raw etc for awesome results. BTW, I’ve had patients on hard narcotics with very poor pain control try a rice grain sized bit of RSO and went painfree for the night. And it didn’t trash their bowels and liver in the process.

  2. I;m glad to see mainstream doing much needed studies after 50 years, well at least making it public anyway…..
