Back in 1974 there was a study done from The Washington Post that stated that THC, “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36%.” Unfortunately, nothing was ever done after that study in regards to cannabis fighting cancer. In 1998, a new study, by Madrid Complutense states ” THC can cause cancer cells to die, and unlike chemotherapy, the THC kills nothing but the cancer cells, leaving the brain of course completely unharmed.” Watch the below video to show the effect of THC on cancer cells. While leaps and bounds have been made recently regarding the legalization of this substance, a lot of the research regarding cannabis fighting cancer has been halted due to legalities and major pharmaceutical companies.
It is incredible to think that a drug our government has been trying to eradicate can cause cancer to die, why aren’t more doctors and hospitals prescribing cannabis to their patients? The video of cannabis fighting cancer should be enough evidence to fund more research. I’d love to know more about cannabis fighting cancer along with the research that either supports or disproves this video.
