Cannabinoids Destroy Cancer Cells, Prevents Them From Growing

A new study published online by the journal Anticancer Research has found that cannabinoids can “destroy” cancer cells, and prevent them from growing.

For the study, researchers tested six different cannabis-based cannabinoids (such as cannabidiol and cannabigerol) in their relation to leukemia cells. It was found that each of these cannabinoids were shown to be effective at combating the leukemia cells.

“Of six cannabinoids studied, each demonstrated anti-cancer properties as effective as those seen in THC. Importantly, they had an increased effect on cancer cells when combined with each other”, according to a press release for the study, sent out today.

“This study is a critical step in unpicking the mysteries of cannabis as a source of medicine. The cannabinoids examined have minimal, if any, hallucinogenic side effects, and their properties as anti-cancer agents are promising”, says Dr. Wai Liu, lead author of the study.

She continues; “These agents are able to interfere with the development of cancerous cells, stopping them in their tracks and preventing them from growing. In some cases, by using specific dosage patterns, they can destroy cancer cells on their own.”

“Used in combination with existing treatment, we could discover some highly effective strategies for tackling cancer. Significantly, these compounds are inexpensive to produce and making better use of their unique properties could result in much more cost effective anti-cancer drugs in future.”

    Cannabinoids are only found in marijuana (cannabis), therefore using the terms “cannabis-based cannabinoids” is like saying coffee-based coffee beans.

  4. while this may be true, each strain contains varying amount , if you were going for a cbd strain you would grab a harlequin. if you were going for sheer mind numbing THC content you would likely go with SuperLemon Haze or Head Cheese. For example there are various types of apples, some we eat for the crunch, some we make into juice , and some we give to our animal pals based on their various traits and qualities we have found where they are most effective. The same is done with cannabis unfortunately it has been under prohibition meaning that all the selective breeding has been primarily done to produce THC. In the future we will be seeing MUCH MUCH more cannabis with lowered THC and Increased CBD for specific ailments, making psychoactive options a choice not a requirement.
