Cannabis Kills Cancer – 9 Types Of Cancer That Can Be Wiped Out

The US Government has known for years the therapeutic effects of cannabis on a wide range of maladies and symptoms. Don’t let the DEA fool you that there is no known medical benefit to cannabis consumption, the government even has a patent on it and there are two FDA approved drugs on the market using cannabinoids. To put it simply – cannabis kills cancer.

With the increasing attention cannabis is getting, it is no wonder we are learning about even more of its benefits to seriously ill people all over the world, not just in the USA. It is about time we as a nation re-open our eyes and minds to the amazing abilities of this plant and stop marginalizing those that are calling for its legalization.

The Body Needs Cannabinoids

Research in the 1980s revealed that the human body contains two specific targets for THC. There is a framework known as the endocannabinoid system, that processes THC and other cannabinoids, along with containing various cannabinoid receptors throughout the body that utilize them. Together, these two natural systems allow the body to benefit from the cannabinoids found in cannabis, some of which aren’t found anywhere else in nature. The endocannabinoid system regulates a lot of biological functions: appetite, food intake, motor behavior, reproduction, and many, many other functions. And that’s why the plant has such a wide therapeutic potential.

Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids help to inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow larger. Laboratory and animal studies have gone on to show that cannabinoids can kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

Brain Cancer

The following studies have shown that THC, CBD and other cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth, reduce the number of tumors, offer neural protection from degenerative diseases, and reduce the viability of glioma cells all with minimal or zero psychoactive side effects and none of the damage from chemotherapy.

Breast Cancer

Studies involving the use of THC and CBD in the treatment of breast cancer have shown tumor mass reduction, inhibiting cancer cell proliferation, dramatically reduced cancerous cell growth, induce cell apoptosis, and impair tumor angiogenesis.

Lung Cancer

Harvard Medical Schools and the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology have shown in various studies that THC inhibits lung cancer cell migration and that other cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Harvard affirms that THC should be explored as a therapy for certain lung cancers.

Prostate Cancer

Below are multiple studies showing the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer, showing a decrease in cancer cells and calling for clinical testing.

Blood Cancer

The studies below show that cannabinoids induce cell apoptosis in leukemia cells and mantle cell lymphoma.

Liver Cancer

In a study published by The American Journal of Cancer, it was determined that THC reduced the growth and viability of human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cells.

Pancreatic Cancer

A study in The American Journal of Cancer determined that targeting cananbinoid receptors found in human pancreatic tumors resulted in induced apoptosis, reduced tumor growth, and the spread of pancreatic tumor cells.

Oral Cancer

A US National Library of Medicine study shows that cannabinoids are toxic to malignant oral tumors by inhibiting cellular respiration.

Colon Cancer

An Italian Study showed that CBD compounds reduced cancer cell proliferation while leaving healthy cells alone.

Cannabis As A Chemotherapy Aid

A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD made the chemo more effective, and increased cancer cell death without harming the normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.

Other Effects of Cannabinoids Include:

  • Anti-inflammatory activity
  • Antiviral activity
  • Relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis
