new study published by the Journal of Drug Targeting examines how researchers have discovered a new method of using THC to combat cancer.

For the study, “Tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] was encapsulated into biodegradable microspheres by the oil-in-water (o/w) emulsion solvent evaporation method.”

Following this, the “efficacy of the microspheres was tested on different cancer cell lines”.

The study concludes that; “Interestingly, the microspheres were able to inhibit cancer cell proliferation during the nine-day study period. All the above results suggest that the use of biodegradable microspheres would be a suitable alternative delivery system for THC administration.”

Researchers believe these findings to be particularly important, given that “despite their [cannabinoids]high clinical potential, only few dosage forms are available to date.”

The study was funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation as well as Complutense University.

  1. It’s truly amazing to me that after all these tests and trials they are hell bent on marketing marijuana in some form that will make them a hefty profit. Just stop, it works amazingly as is, and wrapping it up in shiny paper won’t make anyone spend 10x more money on it.

  2. Sounds like they are suggesting an oral delivery method? Yes – time release over 2 weeks (microsphears made of polymers – yuk! – unhealthy) You mean like how RSO is taken – orally? No shit – but seriously – the Old Hippy at BeyondChronic.com has investigated mixing with lecithin granules to increase the bodies absorption – very interesting. For his purposes it increases the “high” – if mixed in conjunction with Rick Simpsons oil – oral delivery – it should increase the bodies uptake of and utilization of medicine. By that measure – coconut oil or butter may help in the same way. Good food for thought.
