Someday, we will see real research on which kinds of cancer cannabis kills. Until then, people will just keep dying as a result of the disease for no good reason. Cannabis prohibition kills research. If only there was something that could be done.
Cannabis extracts can help slow the growth of cancerous tumors when used alongside radiotherapy treatments, new research has suggested. Two active chemical components found in cannabis plants, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), were tested as part of research into the treatment of brain cancer. This type of cancer is notoriously difficult to treat and has a particularly poor prognosis. The survival rate for patients five years after diagnosis is just 10%.
A team at St George’s, the University of London, treated brain tumors in mice in a variety of ways, either without any treatment, the cannabinoids alone, irradiation alone, or with the cannabinoids and irradiation at the same time. They found that tumors growing in the brains of mice were drastically slowed down when the THC and CBD cannabinoids were combined with irradiation.
. . .
“In some cases, the tumors effectively disappeared in the animals,” the study reads. “This augurs well for further research in humans in the future. – this is a mostly fatal disease at the moment.
“The benefits of the cannabis plant elements were known before but the drastic reduction of brain cancers if used with irradiation is something new and may well prove promising for patients who are in gravely serious situations with such cancers in the future.”
