Cannabis oil has been shown to be an effective cancer therapy, and also has abilities to ease the side effects of chemotherapy. The International Medicinal Verities Association put THC hemp oil on a prioritized protocol list, making it the preferred natural cancer medicine.
Here are a few facts about cannabis and cancer you may not know:
- Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.
- Researchers reported in the August 15, 2004 issue of Cancer Research, the journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, that marijuana’s constituents inhibited the spread of brain cancer in human tumor biopsies.
- The first experiment documenting pot’s anti-tumor effects took place in 1974 at the Medical College of Virginia at the behest of the U.S. government. The results of that study, reported in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, were that marijuana’s psychoactive component, 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 percent.”
- “Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids,” an article in a 1975 Journal of the National Cancer Institute reports, “Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBN)” — two types of cannabinoids, a family of active components in marijuana. “Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size.” (1)
