A recent study shows THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, kills cancer cells. This is just another reminder herb is medically relevant, and can help those who suffer from cancer among other ailments. Find out more specifics about the studies findings after the jump.
Simply put, “Medicinal marijuana oil made from cannabis buds, when ingested thrice daily, for two months, will destroy leukemia and cancer cells.”
Keep in mind that smoking marijuana leads to cancer-causing carcinogens (forgive the alliteration), but when taking the medical marijuana oil in various pastries can lead to the death of leukemia and cancer cells. The technical findings are “Plant-derived cannabinoids, including Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), induce apoptosis in leukemic cells, although the precise mechanism remains unclear.”
So they’re not really sure why the THC is killing leukemic cells, but they know it does. Apoptosis is the process of programmed cell death.
This is great news, but you’re still going to jail if you get caught with a lot of marijuana.
