New evidence suggests that medical marijuana has an impact on tumors.
According to recent studies, we can say that medical marijuana is a reliable and true evidence that tumors have slowed growth.
Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women. 1 out of 10 women can face this disease. There are many successful chemical, radiological and surgical treatment options. But they are certainly not pleasant treatment methods. Also, some tumors are very resistant and prone to relapse.
Ideally, we seek an effective and non-surgical treatment with minimal side effects. Is such a treatment really possible?
There is nothing called “Cancer.” There are many forms of cancer, each of which needs to be handled separately. For example, the method of success in brain cancer may not be valid for colon cancer. No studies have been conducted on living people. We owe all the data we have obtained so far to tissue samples and laboratory mice.
Researchers have documented the cancer prevention activities of medical marijuana since the 1990s. But the great breakthrough in breast cancer It came when Sean McAllister showed that the CBD, the non-intoxicating brother of THC, closed its ID-1 gene, fighting the most malignant forms. The ID-1 gene becomes active when we are embryos and becomes passive after the formation of the fetus. However, it can be reactivated in some parts of our life for unknown reasons and may form malignant, invasive tumors.
Since the McAllister report, there have been numerous studies confirming and expanding their findings. This review, made in 2012, provides an excellent overview if you are interested in science.
The authors of comprehensive cancer research at Madrid’s Computense University concluded that cannabinoids (THC and CBD) working on CB1 and CB2 receptors had “anti-tumor activity” but did not harm healthy tissue.
There’s no cannabis medicine ( medical marijuana ) for direct cancer treatment. However, research and studies showing that cannabis can slow the growth of tumors is promising in this direction.
